It’s been too long (three years to be exact) since Natasha Khan released an album as her alter-ego Bat for Lashes. 2009′s Two Suns made the Brighton native an instant pinup for daydreaming art kids and administrative assistants with a poetry degree. Finally, after touring with Coldplay, collaborating with Beck, and lending a Twilight soundtrack with the indie cred it so desperately covets, Khan is back with The Haunted Man, a polished, haunting, and deeply feminine record. Here’s an exclusive interview with the multi-instrumentalist while she was in town recently promoting the new record.
Lee Daniels is not a fan of the expected. The iconoclastic director of Precious and Shadowboxer doesn't pay court to film conventions, opting instead for his own, sometimes uncomfortable, often resplendent brand of cinematic truth. His latest film The Paperboy, featuring swamps, murder, and a mostly-naked Zac Efron, is ample proof of that. In an exclusive Bullett interview, Daniels discusses the pleasures--and perils--of making cinema that's truly new.
In today’s interconnected climate, the gap between man and machine is closing at a rapid speed. Some might call it inevitable.
Bullett met up with curator Gary Carrion-Murayari, and walked with him through the New Museum‘s installation “Ghosts in the Machine“. Co-curated by Carrion-Murayari and the museum’s Associate Director Massimiliano Gioni, ‘Ghosts in the Machine’ is a building-wide takeover exhibition that explores the centuries-old relationship between man and machine. “Ghosts” runs through September 30th– catch it while you can!
