With such a global approach to music, it comes as no surprise that the New York City quartet is keenly aware of the impact their shows have on the planet. SHFT's Lighten Up......read more

Ars Natura: Beautiful Bogeyman

read
In this week's Ars Natura column, we check in on Chicago artist Nick Cave and his wonderfully freakish Soundsuits.

If Gumby had gone on a mystical journey through space and time – starting perhaps in an ancient Congolese village, making a left turn in King Louis XV’s court, rolling through an Andy Goldsworthy installation and ending up at an all night Mardi Gras bash – he might end up looking like one of Nick Cave’s freakishly beautiful “Soundsuits.” On display at the Fowler Museum in L.A. until......read more
