Happy Monday ya’ll.
Have you seen these cats around town? They’re the work of Desio. Makes sense because Shanghai really is a cat city. You can’t work more than five minutes at night in this town without seeing a street cat (or a 老外, these days).
I’m a big fan of quality graffiti like this (and cartoon cats). Two minutes later on the same street, a five-year old boy walked out of his parents’ shop and took a huge piss on the front steps, so I don’t believe this art harms the neighborhood’s image.
I don’t know anything about I VA. My gf gave me these tracks and I can only find their EP on bandcamp, tagged with “low-fi boogie Russian Federation.” Pretty amazing.
I VA – Girls Girls Girls
I VA – Bus Driver
And on a similar electro-boogie/glitch tip, Siriusmo. This guy has put out a lot of shit but also some gold, like this.
