Interview with SNJEZANA JOSIPOVIC

SNJEZANA JOSIPOVIC is immediately enigmatic. Her voice is such that you feel the words rather than hear them, like an animal’s growl, a kick drum in the dark, or a wave’s crash on rocks. And at the same time she’s sweet and laughs a lot, which covers for the lack of silence. Let me explain. […]

Interview with Photographer Edward Olive

HESO: When did you first pick up a camera? Edward: Very late on, but I’m not looking back. I’m looking to keep taking my photos to the next level and to move all my old pictures just as far round the world as they can go. Sometimes I look back at old photos and think […]

The Beard Radio KUCB 89.7 - Keep It Hairy

The Beard – EP 1 – Music That Made Us

One of things about beards is that, when men reach a certain age, they’d like to see if they can grow one. It’s a phenomenon I understand very well. After you get over the itchy face, you go, ‘Oh, I don’t have to shave, that’s cool.’ And then you move into the philosophical thing– people […]

PJ Harvey - Four Track Demos

Beard Radio – EP 7 – Mix Tape – An Effort of Love In Vain

“A good compilation tape, like breaking up, is hard to do. You’ve got to kick off with a corker, to hold the attention (I started with ‘Got To Get You Off My Mind’, but then realised that she might not get any further than track one, side one if I delivered what she wanted straight […]

TMYMTUR – Yusei 湧声 – 5000 Gushing Voices

Then, as if they correlate with the millions of flowing lives and nature in […]

Tim & Puma Mimi and the apple

The Stone Collection Of Tim & Puma Mimi

As the sparse synthesizer and video games breaks beep to life on the first track of The Stone Collection Of Tim & Puma Mimi we hear a Puma Mimi ask a question, “Acchi, kocchi, acchi, kocchi, dochi ni ikou?” (Here, there, here, there, which way to go?). It is unclear if she’s asking us or […]

Eleanor Friedberger Personal Album Review HESO Magazine

A Most Un-Personal Album by Eleanor Friedberger

Eleanor Friedberger must have a great sense of humor. Like a dry martini, just a touch of vermouth. Watch her music videos, listen to her lyrics, look at how she dances. She has secretly always wanted to be a Second City or a Groucho Marx impersonator. A runaway Vaudeville / carnival sideshow perhaps? Regardless of […]
