I came across Pogo in the comments of one of Jakub’s music posts on ISO50, he is an Australian musician who mixes chillout and trip-hop styles, in this case sampling almost exclusively from Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. Luckily for you, his aptly titled Wonderland EP is up for free on his last.fm page. I didn’t know what to make of these tracks at first, but after watching the usic video and forgetting that I’m bobbing my head to what amounts to Disney tunes, I found a wildly catchy offering. I’ve included the video he did for the EP’s most popular track, Alice. Let’s hear it for videos that sync to the music, I find them infinitely more danceable and engaging. Almost 2 million views…wow.
To accompany this post, I’m including a few colorful photos I took yesterday at the future site of the Barnes Foundation here in Philly, further adding to it’s famous Art Museum area along the Ben Franklin Parkway. The building being demolished was a real eyesore– a juvenile detention facility complete with hobo encampment along its outer wall. These photos came out incredibly abstract, almost morphing the context out of existence. It makes for a psychedelic viewing experience to compliment the tunes, which I hope you enjoy! You can find more photos on my Flickr photostream.
