Red Huxley Share Their Final Song

In the words of true sage Nelly Furtado, all good things come to an end. Rock ‘n roll mainstays Red Huxley have decided to cal things quits, after a solid couple of years in the music industry in South Africa – filming the ‘My Own Way’ video with Motion City Films, recording in Rancho De La Luna with Dave Catching, and playing twice at both Oppikoppi Festival and Up the Creek Music Festival. As a parting gift, the band recently recorded ‘Only your Heart’ at Popsicle Studios with Raiven Hansmann, and its their little way of saying ‘thank you’ and... Read more

We Interviewed Schalk Bezuidenhout Ahead of His Show ‘Second Language’

After opening for Trevor Noah, winning SA Comic’s Choice Awards and becoming a household favourite name, Schalk Bezuidenhout is heading to Cape Town to relaunch his debut one-man show. We’ve seen the young funny man grow over the last few years from That Guy in the Rocking the Daisies promos to a heavyweight in comedy circles, offering a refreshing brand of silliness with a moustache. We had a couple of words with Schalk ahead of his show at the Baxter Main Theatre, coming up on 21 and 22 October 2016. You’re back for round two of Second Language. What’s the... Read more

New Music Video. Petite Noir – Just Breath

1
Our favourite Cape Town export Petite Noir, the moniker of producer and vocalist Yannick Ilunga, has released visuals for ‘Just Breath’, one of the highlights off last year’s excellent debut album, La Vie Est Belle/Life is Beautiful. The video follows Ilunga’s latest achievement, a spot on Danny Brown’s Atrocity Exhibition, where he produced and provided vocals for ‘Rolling Stone’. As we’ve come to expect from the young musician, the video for ‘Just Breath’ is appropriately magnificent, with London-based videographer Modu Sesay behind the visuals along with creative direction from Rharha Nembhard – black and white imagery, swinging cinematographic opulence and...

New Trailer | ’20th Century Women’

Uh, how do I make Annette Bening my mom? Alongside Elle Fanning, Greta Gerwig and Lucas Jade Zumann, Bening stars in the latest offering from Mike Mills (of Beginners), 20th Century Women. The final trailer has hit the internet, and it promises to be a tearjerking coming of age flick about the lives of kids living in 1979 California. Centring on the mother-son relationship between Bening and Zumann, the trailer is set to President Carter’s ‘Crisis of Confidence’ speech, setting the tone for a societal atmosphere which we just may be able to relate to, over three decades later. It’s going... Read more

NAO SERATi SS 16/17

Premiered on Fuuucking Young, Johannesburg-based brand Nao Serati has unveiled its spring/summer collection for the upcoming season off the runway in a perfectly elongated lookbook by Aart Verrips, with art direction by Rich Mnisi. The collection examines the male body, poking fun at the image of man. utlising garments to reveal more than they usually would to challenge a ‘weaker’ image of man. Stretched out of proportion, the images reveal ‘insecurity, confusion and a nerdy sexiness’ as they question what it means to be a man in South Africa. ‘Does size, height and girth really matter, can a straight man...
