Eureka moments come in 5's for the diligent soundrepreneurs behind W0RK. They've somehow managed to dramatically repurpose technically sound user engagement, all while competently conceptualizing corporate synergy. In other words, W0RK is at it again, and this time around they mean business!
Guillaume’s photography series has accomplished capturing and presenting a rare array of feelings with simplicity, tact, and a soft delivery. The Oven Man has given us another view of what will be recorded in the history books (electronic tablets) of this pandemic. A perspective seared into emulsion though a magnifying glass. We have a chance to feel our context which is flying off like a translucent bag in the wind. What’s true now is moving. We’re already onto the next.
I took the small streets of Belleville, and I had passed in front of a very chic storefront of a bakery which irresistibly sucked me in and spat me out with a small turquoise paper bag in hand and 16 euros less in my wallet.

Here is the new Maraudeur album. It's called Puißance 4, which immediately reminded me of the game Puissance 4 (Power 4) that I played with some old people that my mother would pay to look after me. Figuring out why Maraudeur titled their album in reference to this shit game is beyond me, so I will instead try to explain why I find this album to be gr8.
1: Ah man, I'm so tired of these lockdowns! 2: Boop! 1: Boop? 2: Yeah, The Boop ! 1: Come on...what are you on about? 2: Well, the Boop is Danny's sidetracked project... 1: Sidetracked..? 2: Yeah, sidetracked, anyway, during 2nd lockdown when he was living alone in this Parisian flat and... 1: Oh yeah, that reminds me when I was... 2: Oh shush please...just take a listen to this!
