Superchief Gallery’s showing at Select Fair 2013 is even bigger, better and more batshit crazy than our 2012 showing was – check out photos here, and for homies in Miami, we’ll be at the Catalina Hotel all this week!
Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic’s directorial debut, “Scriptura Vitae”, is one of the most intriguing films we’ve seen in a while; Commissioned by the UK’s Channel 4 and Protein London as part of the Random Acts arts platform and featuring an original soundtrack by Diplo as well as London-based producer Actress and British duo Plaitum, the film premieres tomorrow night at Neuehouse in Manhattan.
Levi Mandel is a photographer who was born in Seattle in 1985. By the age of nine he had already decided that as an adult he would live in New York City. His knack for getting into trouble started early too around that time; in 1997 Levi got suspended from middle school for doing graffiti, and it would be that combination of a gifted eye for composition and inclination towards mischief that would come found the basis for his photography.
SANDY KIM ‘SKY2K’ RELEASE PARTY ON FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15TH AT THE BRAND NEW MUDDGUTS SHOP IN BROOKLYN. THERE WILL BE A SHOW HANGING AND A SPECIAL MUSICAL GUEST. COME BUY A COPY, HAVE SANDY SIGN IT AND HANG OUT. IT’S GONNA BE REALLLY FUN.
‘You Already Know’ sounds like exactly like The Smiths! So you basically have a mash-up of The Smiths and Arcade Fire? What else could you want you spoiled bastards!
NEW YORK 2013: It is refreshing to have some visible role-models from the gender-fucking counter-culture. Like Wu-Tang once proclaimed themselves to be (or an in-the-middle-of-a-three-month-bender ODB once proclaimed Wu-Tang to be; whatever) Ladosha is for the children.
Pitchfork hated it, but then again they have always had it in for any band from SF that wasn’t Thee Oh Sees. Besides those dudes have been getting it wrong for some time now.
Superchief Gallery recently played host to the book release for Paul Kwiatkowski’s “And Every Day Was Overcast”, from Black Balloon Publishing. We spoke to Paul about the visual memoir of AEDWO, and culture of the time period that birthed it.
Another AC masterpiece. I love you buddy. You make the best mixes and somehow make even Vampire Weekend seem cool. Thanks for teaching me how to trade.
THIS YEAR SELECT FAIR is breaking ground even further by working with the good people at the City of Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program to go AS BIG AS POSSIBLE in Miami with a large-scale mural by Steve “ESPO” Powers ACROSS THE FRONT OF THE ENTIRE HOTEL.
We have been working closely with SELECT FAIR and for 2013 SUPERCHIEF GALLERY is growing again by leaps and bounds and taking over THE ENTIRE LOBBY of the Hotel Catalina.
AND THE ROOF.
The W Hotel’s Gangs of New York summer music showdown ended with a Warriors-like gathering of emerging crews, but it was hip-hop’s OG prankster who stole the show and brought each crew together. Superchief waded through the smoke in the MC’s hotel suite to catch up with the man himself, and discuss what he’s into now, the difference between the 90′s and today, the victories in the movement to legalize marijuana, “How High 2″, and of course, that episode of Cribs.

James Murphy is all over this supposed AF single and I can’t say I’m mad at it – though maybe it’s a little boring?
Damn maybe it’s all the Xanax I’m on or something, but this mix chilled me the fuck out. And not in like an ambient way – in a pop way. Do you know how hard it is to find pop songs that can mellow you out?
Like all overproduced albums this one loses the fucked up, playfulness of a teenager with a great voice and comes off instead like someone told him what it “should” sound like. If you liked ‘Out Getting Ribs’ before this album, do yourself a favor and skip the new version forever.
That shitty Nokia ringtone in the into makes this whole joint for me. In fact it inspired me back in 2002, to use the T.R.O.Y. saxophone sample as my ringtone for about the next decade.
This by far takes the top honors for weirdest mix. If this were art it would be performance art for sure. Like the kind where chalk-faced Japanese children dance around in flowing robes while stabbing each other and making “blood music”. Or something.
If you forgot already, these are some of our favorite dudes, doing bizarro guitar riffs fuzzed into oblivion with some 60′s garage influence and heavy reverb on the vocals. It’s equal parts catchy and abrasive. Basically this shit is the best.
