Serious Break are an australian 4 piece drawing heavily from genres such as math rock and post rock, but with a very distinct twist. Their debut Huxwkuwkw is filled with disorienting explosions of sludge, doom, black and even death metal. The result is a breath-taking progressive and experimental album, one of the most incendiary I’ve heard in recent times.
Serious Beak plays Han from their 2011 Huxwhukw.

CEMENT ECLIPSES @ CHIAPAS MEXICO
Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.
