Want to kick this off by introducing you to a band that has an upcoming release on one of my favorite labels, 4AD. I just discovered this band, Grimes, last night and fell in love with the combination of dream pop and a voice that reminds me some of Liz Frazier from the Cocteau Twins. The first single, Genesis, is a thing of beauty. It’s pop, but not “pop” enough to become unlikable.
Here is also a video from their last release called “Vanessa.”
A former student of mine, gave me some crosses cut from pennies that she picked up at Bald Knob Cross in Southern Illinois. This is the site where I took one of my first pictures as a journalism student. It’s also one of my favorites to this day. My son has been on a roll studying reflections and glass. For some reason, I can never succeed with taking pictures in this style.
