MUSIC OF THE MOMENT

WARPAINT
New album “Warpaint” available on January 20.

“We all feel we're an emotional band as far as writing, but the specific emotions tend to be of a melancholic, or of an almost sinister-yet-beautiful nature.”
-Emily Kokal
(vocals and guitar)

Ready for a desert séance? California-based indie band Warpaint wrote and recorded much of their forthcoming self-titled new album under the stark blue skies of Joshua Tree. The band’s four members: Emily Kokals (vocals and guitar), Theresa Wayman (vocals and guitar), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass) and Stella Mozgawa (drums), are longtime friends who composed the album in collaboration during a three-week stay in the desert. Inspired by the otherworldliness of the landscape around them, Warpaint created a trailblazing set of songs that range from the abstract eroticism of a Georgia O’Keefe watercolor to the trippy grandeur of Brian Eno. Download the album on iTunes or see them live in concert as they tour from Paris to New York and beyond this spring.

ART SHOW TO KNOW

JIM JOE AT THE HOLE
runs January 1 to 31, 312 Bowery, New York City.

“TEENAGERS GAVE ME FREEDOM
GARBAGE GAVE ME A SURFACE
PAINT GAVE ME SOMETHING TO DO
AND BASQUIAT GAVE ME A FEW DOLLARS”
-Jim Joe on his influences

Montreal-born graffiti artist Jim Joe took up residence in New York’s East Village in 2010. Ever since he’s been transforming the overlooked surfaces of the city into riddles. From discarded sidewalk sofas to soda cans, mailboxes, public telephones and doorways, Joe’s loopy witticisms have contributed new grit and emotional gallop to Manhattan’s increasingly corporatized downtown. A notorious recluse, Joe rarely exhibits large-scale paintings and other ephemera. To add even greater intrigue to the upcoming Hole show, a new work will be added to the exhibition daily throughout the month of January.

FOODIE GOSSIP

THE NEW ACE HOTEL DOWNTOWN LOS ANGELES
The New Ace Hotel and its restaurant, LA Chapter, open on January 6 at 929 South Broadway, LA

“Every detail [has been] carefully selected by our old friends at Commune Design, with eastern light glossing every surface — something a little looser begins to take shape.”
-The Ace Hotel on the lobby design
of its Downtown location

At Ace’s new 182-room hipster-haven in Downtown Los Angeles, guests will be able sip libations among the Spanish-Gothic inspired architecture of a building created by Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford, chill out surrounded by pencil drawn murals inspired by forgotten film stills in the lobby, and view films in a space that’s rumored to have been Mary Pickford’s private screening room. Venice Beach chef (and surfer) Micah Fields will helm the menu at the hotel’s highly anticipated restaurant, LA Chapter, a seasonal eatery from the team behind Brooklyn’s massively sceney café Five Leaves. The Open Table entry promises to start accepting reservations soon. We’ll race you!
