Here Comes The Sun

Joe Webb’s collages are done with vintage magazines and printed ephemera that he has collected over the years. His work includes political and humorous pieces as well as surreal movie collages and minimalistic abstract work. As a basic rule, two very different types of images cause a crazy clash. Cutting accurately with scissors, Webb is a master of his genre: »No computer trickery« as he has assured us on his page.

Mutual Benefit – Advanced Falconry

Weekend music recommendation: »Mutual Benefit is the songwriting moniker of Jordan Lee. A wanderer at heart, Lee has been roaming between rural Ohio and Boston and Austin over the past few years, stopping in basements and living rooms and DIY show spaces along away, playing endearing sets to small groups of similarly idealistic listeners.« This is the real life for a gentleman!
