FKA twigs premiered today the Nabil-directed video for her new single “Two Weeks”. “Two Weeks” is the very first song to be revealed from FKA twigs’ highly-anticipated debut album LP1, which is set for release in North America on August 12th, 2014 on Young Turks.
LP1 is FKA twigs’ defining artistic statement, building on the success of her two previous EPs and accompanying videos (‘EP1′ and ‘EP2′), which have elevated FKA twigs from a word-of-mouth secret to global obsession over the past two years. LP1 features none of these previously released songs; instead each track on LP1 is brand new, born out of FKA twigs’ artistic philosophy of spontaneous creation and collaboration in the studio.

In preparation for his anticipated project, Pixburgh, Devin Miles drops off a brand new record, “Hella Late” produced by Christo. I’ve heard the two have been locked in, creating some crazy joints so here’s a little taste of what’s to come. The city of Pittsburgh just keeps producing talent and I’m all ears.

Stated frankly, the word inspire means to make someone want to do something, it is a word you will hear from the mouths of many a creative, simply because it is the foundation for creation. Inspiration can come from any place, be it a traumatic experience, the gaze of a loved one or those awesome tacos you had for lunch. Keep in mind, there isn’t always a need to welcome such drastic taco filled measures in search of inspiration, some of us are lucky enough to be within close proximity to factories of inspiration; communities of brilliant creative minds that populate all facets of fine art from painting and photography to literature, filmmaking, music and dance. However, what one wouldn’t expect is that this epicenter for inspiration moves through a group of painters, illustrators and tattoo artists that just opened up a new location in what is becoming one of Atlanta’s go-to locations for young and fresh creative energy.
“Inspire your City” is the credo that Atlanta based tattoo shop City of Ink lives by; their dripping star logo was birthed from the idea that “we are all stars in this universe but only a chosen few stars inspire others. Those chosen few must drip down on the masses and inspire them through ART.” With Old 4th Ward increasing it’s stature as a go-to location for creative’s in the city, Edgewood Avenue serves as the perfect spot to continue spreading this message. On a weekly basis, Edgewood Ave is populated with a diverse cast of characters such as the homeless “parking attendants”, trendy hipsters, on up to new business owners looking to stake their claim early on this revitalized street. Literally and figuratively City of Ink left it’s own unique mark on June 11th, 2014 tattooing over 50 customers for free, while also bringing the same flavor and energy they have been supplying in Castleberry Hill for nearly 10 yrs. The Walker St. location has been more than simply a tattoo shop; it has hosted art shows, listening parties, cancer benefits and anyone who is just open to soaking up the creative vibe for application in their own lives, all things very important for burgeoning minds in this city.
