Boards of Canada
You ever have one of those moments when something you had no idea existed gets introduced into your life and you wonder "How in the world did I not know this existed?!" That was my reaction when I first heard Boards of Canada's single Reach for the Dead on Tomorrow's Harvest.

As a fan of anything 70s - music, culture, vehicles, appliances, furniture, photography - the entire Boards of Canada package is exactly the type of experience that'll make me stop whatever I'm doing and immerse myself in what they're putting out.

The band is comprised of a couple of Scottish brothers, Michael Sandison and Marcus Eoin. Adding to their amazing sound is the photography and video imagination of Niel Krug, who has an eye for the retro genre blended with enhanced color washes. If I ever had the chance to interview BoC, the only question I'd ask is "How?!"

Seductive Espionage
I've always been a big fan of the retro look and feel of movies and animations circa 50s, 60s and 70s. So when artist Kevin Dart, animator Stephane Coedel and composer Cyrille Marchesseau collaborated on a mock retro movie trailer for a fictional 007 style spy movie, I had to see it for myself. The production feels like what would happen if you merged the title sequence from Catch Me if You Can with the artwork of Shag. It's absolutely brilliant, and was created to coincide with the release of Kevin Dart's new book, "Seductive Espionage". For more information, visit Fleet Street Scandal.

There's something awe-inspiring about depictions of larger then life vehicles that could help mankind explore previously unreachable places, be it here or in the great beyond. Artist Daniel Simon shares his incredible sketches and models in his 176 page book, Cosmic Motors. The book not only includes his collection of fantasy vehicles, but also comes with the very creative hypothetical background of the vehicle manufacturing company, it's vehicle specs and their pilots.
