Zippora Lux =^ . ^=

These are purrrrfection.. sorry! Feast your eyes on these fantastic prints from Zippora Lux's 'My Favourite Things' series. I spotted them over on Luke Lucas' blog on Lifelounge and I'm obsessed. Some of the prints are for sale over on Etsy and tshirts of The British Shorthair and The Pelican Nebula are up for sale on Threadless too, will definitely be purchasing these. x

I can't stop listening to Meljoann at the moment! I first came across her music on Nialler9's blog and I absolutely love her tracks. It's completely different to anything coming out of Ireland right now, this girl is seriously talented. Her music is an innovative mish-mash of slick R&B female vocals, electro, digital funk and Skweee. Very cool indeed. Her releases to date are the 'Tour Guide' EP, 'So Academic' single and album 'Squick'. Some really sweet tracks on these. Here's a preview of couple of her tunes, please check out her website here where you can listen to more music and buy her releases.

Meljoann has previously collaborated with Herv on his Gang Moulded release and now the pair are working on a new project Gland and Conduit with plans to release the album in the near future. Can't wait to hear that! x

Korg MS-20

I'm looking to buy a Korg MS20 at the moment. The only ones I've seen for sale on ebay have been from the U.S. and the shipping is too expensive on top of a pretty pricey synth already. I've tried and buyandsell but nothing as of yet. Hoping to find one in Ireland or maybe the UK that doesn't need any work done on it or very little. Please let me know if you hear of anyone thinking of selling one! Also, if anyone is selling any other vintage analog synths of similar calibre I'd be interested in having a look. Thank you! x
