Screen Shot 2014-10-06 at 10.10.55

After releasing a few singles earlier this year (listen to ‘River’ here and ‘Said and Done’ here), Dutch singer Sofie Winterson’s debut album ‘Wires’ has now seen the light of day. Winterson found her artistic voice by combining her folk roots with electronic music. This led her to making dreamlike indie pop, by press also referred to as kitsch pop or art pop and sometimes compared to artists such as Beach House or The XX. She kicked off her career with the song ‘Your Eyes’, which was featured in a world wide Braun campaign in 2013. In 2014 she followed up with a first single entitled ‘Said and Done’, which was accompanied by a music video directed by artist duo Pinar & Viola. The same year she presented her live show at SXSW and Eurosonic/Noorderslag. Listen to the album below or through iTunes and Spotify.

The non-profit Fondation Cartier in Paris, a center for the creation and exposition of contemporary art, celebrates its 30th anniversary this month with a new multisensory installation conceived by renowned Argentinian artist, Guillermo Kuitca. Opening this October, ‘The Inhabitants’ will immerse the viewer in Kuitca’s world of optical illusions, where works by American artist Vija Celmins will converse with paintings by David Lynch. Inspired by Lynch’s life-size living room from the exhibition ‘The Air is on Fire’ at the Foundation in 2007, this project will transform the entire lower level of the iconic building in Paris into Guillermo Kuitca’s universe.

Watch the action-packed trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s ‘Inherent Vice’

inherent-vice-trailer3

Joaquin Phoenix can boast an array of astonishing acting performances, such as emperor Commodus in ‘Gladiator’, Johnny Cash in ‘Walk The Line’ and Theodore from the 2013 feature ‘Her’. Chances are, he will be able to add the character of Doc Sportello, the private eye in ‘Inherent Vice’, to that list soon. The story is an adaptation on the eponymous novel by Thomas Pynchon and is set in the 1970s. One day his ex (played by Katherine Watson) rings the doorbell with a new idea: at that moment she is the lover of the wealthy Mickey Wolfmann. The plan is to kidnap him and hide him in a psychiatric institution.

For the American director Paul Thomas Anderson who adapts the story by Pynchon, this film will without a doubt be a happy reunion with Phoenix – the two worked on ‘The Master’ which received three Oscar nominations. The all-star cast features names as Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro. The New York Film Festival will premiere the film on October 4th.

Watch the trailer below.
