I just found this video on the To Ground Control blog and I had to post it here too. First because this is one of my favourite songs of all time, second because Jamiroquai rocks!
PS. If you like Sunny too, please check To Ground Control for the James Brown version.
Céu is a singer and songwriter from São Paulo. She released her second album this year, called Vagarosa (translated from Portuguese as “easygoing”). The song above is my favourite one of this album, which is much more jazzy than the first one. Enjoy!
After the photography overload here, it's time for something a little different I think.
Un Sedicesimo is a very interesting magazine that consists of a mere sixteen pages. Each issue has a different author/curater meaning that each edition is a unique piece in itself. The idea is that is becomes a sort of gallery on paper, with a new exhibition every two months.
Keeping in line with great photography, here's another great series I found over on twbe. Entitled Table For One, it beautifully depicts people eating by themselves in restaurants. Photographer Samantha Tio manages to capture the mood perfectly as far as I'm concerned.
Amazing series by photographer Julia Chesky in collaboration with art director Ali Lee, based on the childrens book The Pushcart War. I love the idea of using a homeless man as a model, it somehow adds extra character and power to the images.
Josh Agle, better known as Shag (a contraction of the last two letters of his first name and the two first letters of his last name) is a painter, illustrator and designer from California.
If you are in Culver City, CA, please don't miss his exhibition at Corey Helford Gallery more info here.
Two days ago I was browsing for some photography books and I found this awesome one, Fresh M.I.L.K, that celebrates the 10th anniversary of the original M.I.L.K. competition. This time the theme is friendship, family, love & laughter. It's just lovely! Get yours here.
Yesterday I watched Jack Johnson's DVD, En Concert and I need to post about Zach Gill here. Zach is part of Jack's band since 2006 with his awesome piano, accordion and amazing live performance. Zach is just brilliant, I had the opportunity of watching his performances three times and had the giant pleasure of meeting him in person, he's a real gentleman. For those who don't know him, he's also part of ALO, Animal Liberation Orchestra, one of my favourites!
Thanks to Oniracom for sharing this video, (I did not manage to extract from my DVD)

So here we have it. Heaven Can Wait is the first video off Charlotte Gainsbourg's long awaited new album IRM, produced by Beck and incidentally also features him on vocals for this track.
The video was directed by Keith Schofield who was also responsible for a host of other great videos such as BPA's Toe Jam and Justice + Lenny Kravitz's Let Love Rule.
Causers of This is Toro y Moi's first of two full-length album set for release in 2010 on Carpark Records. This looks like it's going to be one hell of a record.
You can listen to an extended version of the first track off the album over on GvB.
I just discovered this artist who creates really beautiful leaves arrangements. Jessica Baker lives and works in Brooklyn, where she collects her materials from the streets and parks of Brooklyn, and creates all of her own prints on a table-top etching press in her studio.
If you are in NY check her upcoming exhibition at Soapbox Gallery (636 Dean Street, Brooklyn), starting on december 04th until december 17th.
