Guadalupe Plata

My buddy Corey from Thalia Surf came over and had some beers with me today.  He’s always had a killer taste in clothes, women, and music, so when he told me to check out Guadalupe Plata, I knew I was in for a good one. After watching their video for the song “Lorena” I was deeply hooked.  The band has a grungy/surf death rockabilly sound that kicks you in the face and feels good. Make sure to watch their videos below, you’ll love em all… Check out their Bandcamp to download one of their albums for free.

Waves ≠ Raves Vol. 18

“The waves ≠ raves consists of hand-picked gems that inspire us, tickling and tempting our creative juices. Some are old, some are new, but it is what we are listening to now. They are groovey, flowing, and sun-kissed just like that perfect wave. They are uplifting and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. They sound the best with a babe in one hand, a cold brewski in the other, and the sand beneath your feet. Stay Dreamy.”

Carey Gough | Just Passing Through

Joy Division's Ian Curtis, 18th May, 1980 Barton Close, Macclesfield

Instead of capturing musicians in their live act, Carey Gough’s latest photo series Just passing Through documents artists in their absence. The Kentucky-native traveled the globe snapping photos of the seemingly mundane death sites of iconic artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones, Queen’s Freddie Mercury, and Joy Division’s Ian Curtis. Check out the entire series here.

This work highlights the embedded history held in architecture and landscapes. In these seemingly ordinary spaces, monumental moments of loss in popular music occurred. These places have become sites of pilgrimage where fans can pay tribute to musical heroes. This provides a kind of intimacy of investment knowing the fan has traveled to such a spot and shared the same environment once inhabited by the one they admire. On the other hand, some of the stories of the photographed spaces have been absorbed into the woodwork and landscape through the passage of time and the changing of cultural tastes.
