It’s the end of January! That means only two more cold months before it starts to get warm! Maybe it’s too early to celebrate, but we are in that time of the year when a ton of amazing bands drop new albums, and am I excited to play some of them for you today. Keep your ears peeled for brand new tunes from The Dodos, AJ Davila, and Jack Name! Plus, don’t forget to check out BTR on Facebook and Like us!
I have a very cool feature for you on this week’s Sew & Tell; my guest is Dutch photographer/conceptual artist Hans Eijkelboom, whose recently published tome of street photography, People of the Twenty-First Century, has been making waves in the street style community. For over twenty years on an almost daily basis, Hans has visited public spaces like markets and shopping malls, seeking out repetitive patterns in human behavior and appearance. Of the visual patterns that are evident in this collection, one of the most remarkable is the repetition of street style and fashion trends. Grid after grid of people wearing the same shirt, same jacket, same hat, same bag, on the same day, add up to a visual catalogue of fashion and culture consumption. On today’s show, Hans talks about how the project first began, his process of taking pictures and finding patterns, its significance as a collection, how the age of the internet has changed street style, and more. Plus, I have music in the mix today from Brit pop legend Robert Wyatt, Cleveland indie pop trio Filmstrip, the reunited Copeland, and more. So join us as we examine the evidence of fashion as machine, with Sew & Tell on BreakThru Radio!
We review director Paul Thomas Anderson's "Inherent Vice" and feature interviews with Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, and more!
This week we reflect on our New Year and invite WFIT Radio Director Alex Bodnar onto the show to discuss 2014's best entertainment moments
Happy New Year! This is your very first Thursday Mix of 2015. Lottie@btrtoday.com
