Audio and video suggestions to fill your heart's desires for the week
Words by Mister Lee
Kirin J Callinan - WIIW
Hear: When forwarded the release and link for the video to "WIIW," it was noted that it was NSFW, thus I immediately felt compelled to check it out... at work. Pleasantly surprised the video was more artistically pleasing than shocking and resembled a surrealistic painting in motion. It features the phenomenal landscapes of Australia and ambiguous interactions between a child, a man (Kirin J Callinan), some veiled characters, and animals, all within in a very gif manner. Kirin J Callinan has recently made Terrible Records his new abode.
Cop: 7" single available digitally June 19. 7" vinyl available July 31.

The artists range from the West Coast's Giraffage, Dwntwn and Childish Gambino to the East Side's St. Lucia, Selebrities, and XXXChange. This year, the brand and label celebrated its 10th anniversary and set up its 1st New York City boutique. We're always a strong supporter of all things Kitsune, but because they consistently deliver modern vision.

Gigamesh - All My Life EP
Hear: Currently, a multi-platinum selling producer and on numerous occasions, he's been proud holder of the #1 spot on The Hype Machine. However, the Wisconsin native has been on the scene a while, remixing names from Michael Jackson to Deee-Lite and other greats, using his impeccable taste in disco to construct a forward form of the genre. This EP is a substitute from energy drinks to keep you going from dusk till dawn.
Cop: Currently available on Beatport.com
Video for "Dream On"
Giraffage ft. XXYYXX - Even Though EP
Hear: San Fran's Giraffage join forces with the ever-youthful XXYYXX like your favorite super hero team up. As if the original version wasn't cool enough, the remixes come in every flavor you could hope for from beachy to funk to dance and prance to melodic chilled out electro by Reid, Teen Daze, The One AM Radio, and Slow Magic.
See: Giraffage will be part of the Kitsune Showcase NYC's Santos Party House May 31.
Cop: Currently available through Kitsune.
