NTS Radio + Cottweiler’s Time Shares @ ICA, June 17

16 June 2014

NTS Radio will be celebrating menswear designer Cottweiler‘s new collection, titled Time Shares, at London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on June 17.

The London-based online community radio station – on-air (or online) since April 2011 – celebrates the Spring /Summer 15 showcase with a special soundscape from FKA Twigs, visuals from artist Daniel Swan (who has done most of the artwork for the PC Music record label), as well as performances by Palmistry and NTS DJ Endgame.

This comes as the third Parallel Visions interdisciplinary event done in a collaboration with NTS Radio aiming to use the ICA Theatre space as a new cultural platform to celebrate some of London’s visual and musical artists.

See the ICA event website for details. **

FKA Twigs – ‘Papi Pacify’

16 September 2013

Two of the more intriguing, elusive and thus exciting artists to really rise this year, FKA Twigs (nee just ‘Twigs’) and Arca present another excellent video to follow last month’s ‘Water Me‘, an uncanny valley contribution from director, designer and animator Jesse Kanda. This time it’s photographer and film maker Tom Beard working with the Gloucestershire artist’s vision on ‘Papi Pacify’, in anticipation of her EP2 release out tomorrow, September 17, on Young Turks.

This video features imagery that complements the heavy-physicality-meets-the-‘feminine’-ephemeral that FKA Twigs’ trip hop roots, morphed and mingled with Arca’s bass undertow creates, in generating a sublime and sensual whole. **
