Let’s Talk With Kiera

The 4th installment of Kiera McNally’s very own advice column. Published in issue 17. Thanks to everyone who wrote in, and sorry to anyone we missed!  Hi Kiera, what are your thoughts on open relationships? Is it possible to love more than one person at the same time? Or is one person in said situation bound to…

Premiere: Gobby’s Northeastern Promises

Gobby’s music evokes a cartoonish sense of possibility, where the laws of physics don’t apply and people and things can stretch like elastic bands. Noisy, electronic, and approaching ominous, an intuitive pop sensibility permeates the mental-as-hell music he makes. In his newest track “Northeastern Promises”—a nine-minute amuse-bouche for his electronic-opera double LP EL HONKO MIXED forthcoming on…

Premiere: White Poppy’s Hypnotized

Today we return to our longtime musical crush White Poppy (Crystal Dorval) to premiere her latest video “Hypnotized.” Filmed and edited by the artist herself, Crystal tells us the video takes inspiration from the world of bad self-made music videos, and if you look closely you may find her Grandpa accidentally walking through her shots. In “Hypnotized,” Crystal channels a…

Trevor Baird: New Ceramics

Trevor Baird is at the forefront of the New Ceramics movement. That’s a movement I just made up, but it starts now and consists of ceramics like you’ve never seen them before. These aren’t the sleek, unapproachable art-objects you might find in the living room of a childless professional couple, nor the typical hobby creation of a…

Frankie Teardrop ~ Any Life You Want Mix

DJ Frankie Teardrop comes in hot and heavy with their latest mix “Any Life You Want” made exclusively for Editorial Magazine ears! If you don’t know Frankie Teardrop, it must mean you’ve never left the house, or cobwebs have sealed your eyes shut.

Shoot the Breeze: Jheyda McGarrell

“The best advice I’ve ever been given was to let pain and hurt teach me instead of making me bitter,” says NYC based photographer, Jheyda M. This astute and simultaneously affable ideology is a distinct thread that runs through her photography as well—intimate moments, snapshots of friends and strangers. Jheyda’s photos are remarkably serene as…

Premiere: Pelada’s Desatado

Today we premiere the latest video from Montreal electronic duo Pelada. Producer Tobias Rochman and vocalist Chris Vargas came up in the Montreal afterhours scene, and have since played internationally at raves in Chicago, Prague, Paris, Moscow, and more. Pelada borrows from classic Chicago Acid house and Detroit techno, but combines the sounds with hard and…

Shoot the Breeze: Camille Rouzaud

Camille Rouzaud’s photographs are visceral, rough, intimate, and voyeuristic. Her vision tends to focus on the exuberance of youth, though it is tempered by a kind of remote detachment, articulated in high-contrast color and what often looks like digital grain. Rouzaud’s work is like a memory of adolescence, defined by a quality of freedom which…

André Ethier + Jasmine Reimer @ Projet Pangée

Today we visit Montreal’s Projet Pangée to catch their latest exhibition André Ethier + Jasmine Reimer. “Freedom” was the first word that came to mind when observing these works, and what followed was some kind of mix of artist-envy and excitement. I wish I could make art like this. Both Ethier and Reimer’s work appears to be free from…

Lala Albert

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16 Windows to a monstrous soul, black and green with the weight of carrying hopes and dreams around in a sack of skin. The eyes are the site of mortal discomfort in these grotesquely alien illustrations penned by Lala AKA Lauren Albert, a Brooklyn-based artist and comic writer. Feathered bangs and close-set…

Don’t Shave My Rump: A Piece of Retribution by Estelle Davis

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16 WRITTEN BY ESTELLE DAVIS I really don’t know a single frocking thing about Bruce LaBruce, acclaimed northern darling of the queercore cinema movement, except that he’s a creepfuck shitbag. As I’m sitting down to write what feels like something roughly equivalent to an angsty teenage journal entry, I can honestly only…

A Conversation with Nydia Blas

Austin Lee

PUBLISHED IN ISSUE 16 Where are my glasses? Airbrushed, out-of-focus, pop-art optical illusions, Austin Lee’s paintings begin as iPad sketches, before pixel is transferred to canvas as his digital doodles become more traditional works of art. Figurative yet abstract and reminiscent of early internet animation, his pieces are all-together contemporary cartoonish portraits with the unmistakable texture…
