My Top Band This Month: Tame Impala

Tame antelope, eh?  Funny name, incredible tracks.  I've listened to this album on repeat over the past couple days.  Makes walking around the city feel like an adventure.  Kicks some speed into my pace and optimism into my head.  Great combination.

Psychadelic dreamy rock sound held together by classic rock drum beats.  I'd put them on a bill with Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and expect them to blow up in a similar fashion- it's just a matter of time before we hear this Australian quartet over the speaker system at Urban Outfitters.

Listen to the whole Tame Impala album on NPR First Listen.

Track: Be Above It

Track: Apocalypse Dreams

Manjari Sharma Photography

One of the models from a my recent photo shoot for HEEB Magazine messaged me a link to these beautiful images created by Manjari Sharma Photography.  The project for HEEB portrays NY-based mutimedia meditation guru Harry Einhorn at the center of a thangka painting, surrounded by a smattering of colorful deities, fierce in full body paint.

Manjari Sharma Photography provided stellar inspiration for post production.  The images they produced for their Darshan project are vibrant eye candy, and although they feature real subjects, there is a surreal storybook-like quality to the finished portraits.
