Battles have a new song « The Yabba » and they will be releasing a new album « La Di Da Di » on Warp Records, September 18th.

Objectively one of my favorite bands. No nostalgia in my judgement, purely factual. They are technically amazing musicians and creatively pushing boundaries since 2007! Having been a post-rock/math rock fan as a teenager when Battles first came out my brain pretty much exploded. In my world it was a SUPERGROUP: with legendary guitar player Ian Williams from Don Caballero and John Stanier – drummer for Helmet and Tomahawk, Tyondai Braxton in the the original line up would bring the experimentation further. To me it was like hearing that the Beatles were starting a band with Prince, Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and Jeff Mills! (lol) This was their first hit.

This is the latest video coming from the genius mind of multi-talented Kirikoo.
Kirikoo is a famous dancer and artist and has been producing music under the moniker NS DOS for the last year and a half, making elaborate techno beats. In this new song and video you can see the extent of his artistry as a performer, musician and also as a conceptual creator. A very intriguing piece worth its’ 14 minutes. If ever you get the chance to see one of his live performances, they are all one of a kind.

I recently had a super interesting discussion with Madsear about music, rappers, sponsoring, brand management, etc. and somehow digressed onto Bill Withers! What always struck me about Bill Withers’ career was that he started at quite a mature age (32), was self-taught and went from having a regular 9 to 5 to writing radio hits to then letting himself disappear from the limelight. What appeared to me to be a simple, humble man’s attitude towards fame and « show business » I guess.

When I mentioned this, Madsear stopped me straight: « Have you seen his documentary ‘Still Bill’?? » – this is what I’m getting at, I thought I liked Bill Withers, but in the words of Madsear « You don’t even know! I don’t want to say anymore, watch it! »
Hence, to inaugurate our Music Monday section, I thought I’d pay homage to this wise man and beautiful artist with one of his songs.

NEW YORK - March 17: Pulse - The secret, off-menu Gorgon taco at Otto's Tacos, 141 Second Avenue in Manhattan. March 17, 2014. (Photo by Gabi Porter)

Last September, Piu Piu and I went ot New York for 5 days. It was Piu Piu’s first time in the Big Apple and since she’s been allergic to gluten for over a decade, I made sure I’d have a list of gluten free small-eats options we could go to. Geeked out a ton of different sandwich spots, arepas restaurants and Gluten free pizza of course! Somehow, one of the places that really hit our soft spot was a taqueria in the middle of East Villy: Otto Tacos.

From the outside it looked a bit « whatever » but it was definitely a place that surprised us in the best possible way. Here’s the drill: their main selling point is that they prepare the taco dough with fresh ground corn meal themselves. So when you order your taco, the dough is pressed in front of you and put into the taco shape especially FOR YOU and your carnita. Super fresh everything, creamy guacamole and a waiter that could really really sing!!
Address: 2nd Ave x 9th Street, NYC.

Can’t start with a food section and not start with the basics.
I’m half taiwanese from my dad’s side. I owe 70% of what I know about food to my dad and to the food culture in Taiwan. So I’m going to dedicate this first post to him, my dad. He is such an amazing cook, making the simplest ingredients taste like heaven. There are many dishes I discovered in Taipei as a kid and there are many different small eats that have travelled the world to become super popular everywhere like Bubble tea or Boba, Taro ice cream, Mochi, black sesame deep fried balls, Gua Bao thanks to Eddie Huang sharing the culture with everyone one bao at a time, xiao long bao thanks to Din Tai Fung teaching the world the magical craft of making soup delicate soup dumplings… There is one dish that feels like going home to me and that’s the beef noodle soup: Hong xao niou rou mien also known as Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup –  dark soy sauce based broth with tender beef and curled up ramen!

It is such a popular dish that you can get many instant versions of it and most especially there is a yearly BEEF NOODLE SOUP FESTIVAL!!!
