Always like what I see from the fellas at The Midwest Style.


Lotus Plaza - Spooky Action At A Distance

Deerhunter’s Lockett Pundt gives us this dreamy tune via his Lotus Plaza monicker. It’s got that catchy, forward-moving sound that made “Desire Lines” a guitar-driven highlight off Deerhunter’s Halcyon Digest.

Look for the album Spooky Action at a Distance on April 2.

As a firm advocate of the “books are always better than the movies” school of thought, I have an uneasy feeling because of Hollywood’s siege over my life these next few months, with The Hunger GamesOn the Road, and The Great Gatsby about to hit theaters. The official On the Road trailer did wonders at curing the ill feeling however, as is it’s stellar cast and devotion to jazz seem to honor Kerouac’s American masterpiece.

Take 30 minutes of your time and watch this video. It will anger you. You will probably cry a little…or a lot. But most importantly it will motivate you.

Note: The Invisible Children organization has recently received much criticism in relation their financial integrity, etc. Here is an article (and video statement from IC CEO) covering the public concern of their campaign.

It’s funny how fast people can watch a video, become inspired, spread word, and almost overnight, here a piece of criticism, change their views, share those concerns with others, without even investigating these issues themselves.

d'Eon - 'Music For Keyboards' Mixtape

No you’re not seeing things – this is a real Walk About post! And, it happens to be the first since the W A offices have moved to Brooklyn, New York. We haven’t given up on the blog and are committed to finding a way to consistently send out the finest in style, music, art and sexy women-pics. Forgive us for the moments we were absent and you needed us.

So, to get back into the swing of things, here’s some ethereal listening to get you through the rest of the week. Montreal’s d’Eon, who you may have seen through collaborations with weirdo-R&B masterminds, Grimes and How to Dress Well, released a Music For Keyboards mixtape. If his upcoming debut, Hippos in Tanks is anything as good as this, we may have an album of the year contender. Or, at least something to thaw out to as the world turns to spring.
