Recommends: Sinoia Caves - Beyond The Black Rainbow OST

Panos Cosmatos' 'Beyond The Black Rainbow' stands as one of the more spellbinding, unnerving sci-fi masterpieces in recent years - an even lower budget, even more indie, even weirder companion piece to Jonathan Glazer's equally exceptional 'Under The Skin'. Although the film was released in 2010, only now has the film's score, by Black Mountain man Jeremy Schmidt under the name Sinoia Caves, seen a release. Given time and space from the unveiling of the film serves to expose the score as more than just an accompaniment to the film and a neat piece of work in it's own right - an eerie, totally paranoid, faintly retro suite of haunting, instrumental synthscapes works seamlessly with the film but very nicely without. Just go easy on the green taking a toke of this one.

Recommends: Brian Vu

Recommends: Brian Vu

Currently transfixed to the work of Brooklyn-based photographer and collagist Brian Vu. Vivid and saturated in colour, his images aren't as positive as they initially appear, often referencing heavier themes such as religion, the afterlife and human relationships with others and ourselves. The self-taught artist has described past escapist visions as "praying to god on an acid trip". Working with the bare essentials including a point and shoot, Canon 7D and his phone, much of Vu's brilliance is often the result of putting "accidents" through post-production.

Admire selections from his folio below, purchase two of his artist zines, True False and New Guilt, or stalk him on instagram.
