New Sigur Rós- Ekki Múkk

Thanks to our friend and guest blogger TK in a previous post, we've already expressed our love for the Icelandic band, Sigur Rós. Well today the band has announced they will release a new album, titled Valtari or "Steamroller" May 28 of this year.

Frontman Jónsi tells Q magazine that "the music kind of just rolls over you" but "in a good way." The album is centered more on electronics, and makes use of strings and a girls' choir. No lyrics are sung in English.

so magical...

LEGO "Imagine" Campaign

Minimalist LEGO advertisements strike our imagination. The campaign was executed by Jung Von Matt, a German agency and replicates some familiar characters with basic building blocks.

I've mentioned before my obsession with the iphone app, Instagram. Well it hasn't subsided, which is great, because I've had the chance to come across some really awesome artists.

Under the headline ToysRLikeUs, Santlov photographs some familiar pop culture characters in ways we've never seen them before. They're taken out of context from their original storylines, shown doing...well random things us humans might do, i.e. taking an instagram photo with tiny toy iphones! I like that each character is portrayed in a silly, almost deviant manner. It's like we get to see the toys on their 'days off'.

Some repeating appearances include Toy Story's Woody, Stormtroopers, and Jack from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

So cool! What do you guys think about the Kony commentary?
For you iphone users (*and soon to be Andriod users) Follow @Santlov on Instagram and search the tag #toysrlikeus

Don't worry, if you have a dumbphone you can still check out Santlov's toy photography online on the website Populagram! ...just teasing about the dumbphone thing.
