Zoo York Artist Series - Makeset and Broken Windows

Zoo York Institute announced the release of two latest series of decks, Makeset and Broken Windows.

Makeset is a design collective comprised of two Brooklyn-based artists/designers/makers - Mike Perry and Zoo's very own in-house creative mastermind, Damien Correll. Long-time friends and regular collaborators, over the years the two have joined forces on several ‘zines, prints, and other acclaimed art projects. The tag team duo’s new series of Zoo pro models feature custom graphics that are a playful spin on NYC’s iconic landmarks, renowned architecture, and bustling neighborhoods. From Coney Island, Times Square, and the East River, to the Brooklyn Bridge, Flatiron District, and Chrysler Building, the Makeset Artist Series provides a unique visual narrative on life in the Big Apple.

The Broken Windows Artist Series is a custom creation brought to life by a covert design collective affiliated with Zoo York. Keeping it dark and gritty like New York City, the graphics on this collaborative series of pro model boards reflect the wide range of typography, graffiti, and scrawls plastered all throughout the city’s five boroughs. Cleverly designed so the graphics from one board bleed onto the next to form a complete set (aka, polyptych), the inspiration for this series was derived from a challenge to the 80’s era Broken Windows theory that was adopted by the Giuliani Administration as a way to clean up NYC streets by cracking down on graffiti, petty crime, and other forms of perceived “vandalism.”

Both series are already available in authorized stores globally. Click here for more information.

Shocking Pinks

A New Zealand indie rock band formed by Nick Harte, Shocking Pinks released a self-titled album under DFA Records, a compilation album of his previous tracks from his back releases, Mathematical Warfare and Infinity Land.

Shocking Pinks does not have a permanent live touring band, so members differ all the time. Something rather interesting, experimenting the same music with different styles being played. Sweet.

His (or their?) first single from the album, End of the World.

Boys Noize - Oi Oi Oi

German electro producer Alexander Ridha, better known as Boys Noize, is a one-man show band. He has done loads of remixes for Depeche Mode, Bloc Party, Tiga, Feist, Marilyn Manson, Kaiser Chiefs, among others.

His debut album entitled Oi Oi Oi was recently released and now available in stores worldwide. The first single is Don't Believe The Hype.

múm - Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy

Múm is no stranger to experimental electronic fanatics. The Icelandic trio made a come-back with their fourth album, Go Go Smear the Poison Ivy.

"Exuding an otherworldly, almost magical aura, múm make sonically warm, richly melodic experimental music married effortlessly to a pop sensibility. The band uses an array of instruments (guitars, bass, drums, synths, laptops, cello, accordion, mutated brass, and mouth trumpet, to name a few) alongside crisply-programmed electronic washes, beats and bleeps." - Insound

The first video from the album, They Made Frogs Smoke Til' They Exploded.
