Every once in a while, I find myself becoming completely obsessed with a song and listening to it over and over and over. The latest? "Harsh Realm" from the Brooklyn-based band, Widowspeak. This is the only track I've seen from them thus far, and I can't wait to hear what else they put out!
And I'm sure my other obsession (when I get it in the mail!) will be the latest zine from illustrator Lizzy Stewart, Toska. As soon as I saw her blog entry about it, like a bolt of lightning, I was at her etsy purchasing it. At first it sold out (she's selling them in batches) and I cried a little bit inside while I sat there for half an hour F5'ing until she quickly restocked it.
"The concept for the book is based on a quote from Vladimir Nabokov on the uniquely Russian sensation of 'Toska' and whilst the book has no narrative I hope you can at least spot a kind of vaguely tangible theme." via About Today
You can get a copy too from her etsy shop! Or check out some more of her work on her online portfolio.
