Most people groan in dismay when I rigorously analyze pop culture through a gender studies lens –but I think that shit is hot.

Test Shots by Rog Walker.

Test Shots is an ongoing series of portraits taken in the studio with photography couple Rog and Bee Walker. Each photograph, taken mostly of their close friends and fellow creatives, is as striking as it is simple.

Opting for a sombre and dark background, coupled with poised and pensive subjects, Walker’s shots manage to maximize on the simplicity of the traditional portrait style by making use of a medium format camera that provides an image quality which, despite the powerful stillness of each individual, vividly brings the details of each photograph to life. This brings out both a sense of strength and vulnerability in each picture, alluding to the intimate two-way dialog between subject and photographer.

"This is the most organic method of communication I have. Photography is the way I speak…It doesn’t get more personal than another human, and that’s what I’m looking to capture, that connection between humanity." - Rog Walker

The reason Canadians are so nice is easily explained. Once a year, on the sixth full moon all Canadians gather beneath the stars and perform a ritual that sucks all their meanness and cruelty and places it in Canadian Geese.

that feeling when you listen to a song with good heaphones for the first time and suddenly you notice 7 new instruments, a child singing harmonies in the background, and you’re just sitting there wide eyed and in love with the song all over again

dashkeepingtabs said: hey gurl, what are some of your favourite tracks this year so far?

hey!! man, I haven’t actually thought about this deeply, but here’s what I can come up with right now

Milk - f(x) - the whole album is solid, but this is definitely the stand-out

Baby I Miss You - 2NE1 - perfect throwback R&B jam. Only song I like on that album

Johnny - Yemi Alade - great dance track from an up-and-coming Nigerian artist. I love her energy

It’s You - Neon Bunny - I literally love everything this girl does. she’s amazing

Don’t - Ed Sheeran - Ed Sheeran is a great songwriter, but I only ever really like one track from his albums. This is the one I’d pick from X.

Fxxk Boys Get Money - FEMM - just all of the yes

Domino Game - Kiss&Cry - Most promising rookie group in a while. Hope they make it big

Every Little Word - MNEK - I’ve been following this dude for a few years now, since he got big on MySpace (when MySpace was still a thing). Cannot wait for his debut album to drop later this year - it’s about time

Pretty Girls - Little Dragon - was hard to pick a favorite from the Nabuma Rubberband album, as it’s become one of my favorite Little Dragon albums ever, but I keep coming back to this song. The instrumental, more than the lyrics, are strangely comforting. I also love the “you magnify the universe” line.

That’s pretty much it? I haven’t done a good job of keeping up with new music this year, but I’m trying to follow a few more music blogs and some Soundclouds and stuff.
