So I am starting a simple post series of my inspiration derived from my saves on Designspiration. If you haven’t got a chance to check out the site now is the chance. I was invited earlier this year to be a member of the site and have utilized this wonderful resource quite frequently. So above is just Projection 1 from the JetstreamProjector Designspiration inspiration bank. In these projections I will be posting just small selections of my most recent saves. The Projection 1 feature includes a wonderfully designed poster for the band Vintage Modernists, the essential Dieter Rams’ “10 Principle Principles of Good Design” poster, as well as a beautiful poster of the great Massimo Vignelli’s “5 Phrases to Live By.” Many many more to come.

I featured this Brandt Brauer Frick in a post a long while back but I recently discovered there music video for the song “Caffeine.” The video was created by Danae Diaz and Patricia Luna based off of Diaz’s cover art for the Brant Brauer Frick’s album “You Make Me Real.” The video is very minimalist, which I love, and has a very simple yet engaging storyline. Reminds me a lot of the contemporary society of Japan, THX 1138, and a little bit of Kraftwerk’s “The Robots.” Drone!
I’m really excited to announce the early release of Tycho’s new album “Dive.” CD, vinyl, and direct download available over at the to ISO50 Shop. So far, I’ve ran through the album three or four times and I can’t get enough. This new music from Tycho has been long awaited and has far from disappointed. Looks like I’ll have my music set for my autumn/winter design sessions.
Visit ISO50 for more info.
I am also super excited for “The Years” EP by Memoryhouse which was just released late last month. The video above is a full stream of the EP with new and unreleased visuals by Jamie Harley. Jamie does a wonderful job capturing the emotion and feel of the music in the visuals with the dreamy, washed out, and psychedelic imagery. I’m really anxious for the full length LP now.
Also worth viewing: Quiet America by Memoryhouse.

Got a call earlier from my friend Ian and guess what he was playing in the background? New Radiohead! Completely caught me by surprise. Thank you Jakub for posting the music on ISO50. I’ve been in a design slump lately and this is definitely going to get the creative juices flooding my brain. The video featured above for ‘Lotus Flower’ is one of the singles for the new album The King of Limbs. I didn’t know what to think of it the fist 10 seconds but after watching it all of the way through I couldn’t get enough of it. Thom Yorke you can dance like a maniac all day! We will be posting a review of the new album within the next few days so pay a visit.
In the meanwhile, get over there and buy the new album The King of Limbs.
So after being introduced to Toro Y Moi‘s first album Causers of This and being obsessed over it they have another album being released just around the corner: Underneath the Pine. The album as a whole has a different feel compared to their epic first album but after listening to it the whole way through I am finding myself in loop. It still creates a strong atmosphere of nostalgic lo-fi inherent in Causers of This. Here are some of my favorite track from Underneath the Pine set to be released March 22 on Carpark:
Toro Y Moi – New Beat
Toro Y Moi – Divina
Via Gorilla vs. Bear.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Amazing remix and such a rad video of Crystal Castles’ “Not in Love” featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. I love the analog feel. It looks as if they distorted VHS footage to create the music video.
