a favorite friend recently lent me the vivian girls album, which i've wanted for a while now, admittingly only because they named themselves after henry darger's army of younglings, but really love it & have been listening to it on repeat all night while stringing together spinal cords with vintage brass. i've listened to it so much already that its become trance inducing. the ladies have a lo-fi style & sound like they may be singing in a damp, echoing tunnel underground or beneath a bridge. i hope to catch them live in person this summer.
lastly, i was recently made aware of the breathtaking artwork of remedios varo today. it's been one of those discoveries that feels like an epiphany. how could i have lived my life this long without ever having seen any of this before? apparently the artist was good friend's with frida, was a surrealist & took art classes with dali. i look forward to reading a book on her life and work that was lent to me today as well. coincidentally, the woman who wrote the book is one of mictlan's professors at moore. o world! how small & delightful you are.
