With fashion week kicking off next month we’ve been on the lookout for new fashion accessories especially when it comes to tech. Today we’re looking at the latest collection by goo.ey and FAULT Favourite House of Holland entitled ‘Buggin’.

 

Following the showcase of the SS15 Bug Collection at the London Fashion Week, the colourful prints have now been immortalized on a range of awesome phone covers. It’s nothing new for designers to create a brand of tech accessories as we saw with the Moschino phone cases but sometimes it can be a bit much.

The House of Holland X goo.ey covers are far less in your face and instead opt for the more sleek. Speaking of the collaboration, Henry says “ I love the goo.ey cases – they’re stylish and useful.”

The Collection included 6 designs all made to fit the iPhone 6, IPhone 6 Plus and Samsung s6. They will be available in Selfridges in store and online, on the House of Holland online store  and on the goo.ey webstore retailing at £22.99.

FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: Sneaky Sound System

SSS 2013 picA white

Sneaky Sound System aka Black Angus and Miss Connie aka two people we wish we were real life friends with. To say that we’re fans of Sneaky would be an understatement. You may remember the Aussie duo’s 2011 dance anthem meets love letter single “Big” or “Really Want To See You Again,” both songs off their album “From Here To Anywhere.” They’ve both been staples on our playlist for quite some time. Known for their extroverted, room filling sound and Connie’s boisterously wonderful vocals, Sneaky continues to make music for the dance inclined masses, closing out 2015 with “All I Need,” a track that sees the duo moving more into the chilled out house space.

We asked Angus and Connie to put together some of their all-time favorite tunes and you might recognize some of these iconic classics, such as New Order’s “Bizarre Love Triangle.” The duo’s 80s influence comes through on their selections and we’re not mad about that at all.

Howard Jones – Like To Get To Know You Well

Angus: I was obsessed with this song when I was really young. I loved the chords, the marimba sound, the drum machine – i guess it was one of the first tracks that got me into electronic music – I even liked his jump suits.

Butch – Dope
Angus: I’m a house head through and through and I like everything Butch does, he sure knows how to pump out the party starters! This is basically a disco loop on repeat but it makes me want explode every time I play it, or hear it. This is definitely my summer jam!!

New Order – Bizarre Love Triangle
Angus: Have finished many a set with this old chestnut. I love that mix of melancholy, joy and hope and here its all bundled up in one of the 80s finest moments. Yes everyone knows it but it still inspires me.

Rufus feat Chaka Khan – Better Days
Angus: I could have chosen many Chaka Khan tunes, or disco for that matter. She just oozes and oozes and oozes!!! She has such a beautiful voice, wonderful phrasing and such dope songs. Love her.

Whitest Boy Alive – Gold Cage
Angus: I love simplicity and this is very simple yet so warm and satisfying. Erlend Oye is a master in my mind and never puts a foot wrong, and i really really like the way he plays guitar. This song has such beautiful lyrics to boot.

King Krule – Easy Easy
Connie: First heard this on a train. Magical. Reminds me of the cold…i mean real cold!! The simplicity and the tone/accent get me.

Vangelis – Blade Runner Soundtrack
Connie: Oh god this is my life! Everything that I am and ever hope to be encapsulated in one body of work. My emotions, my character, my faults and all my habits. Too good!

Spector – All The Sad Young Men
Connie: I love songs that evoke the sentiment of books and this I think F Scott Fitzgerald would be proud of .

FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: JR Nelson

11224762_1657405084509399_9083657884489894976_n

We love the “come hither” stare Future R&B producer JR Nelson is giving us in his press photo and we’re impressed even more with the music the DC based artist has been putting out over the last year just at the tender age of 20. With chart topping remixes of Andra Day and Bon Iver, we have a feeling that 2016 is going to be even bigger, hopefully with some more original tracks. We asked Nelson to put together some of his favorite tunes and the result mirrors his R&B influenced music. Take a listen below!

dvsn – With Me
“I first stumbled upon the dvsn project when reading an article about how “Hotline
Bling” producer Nineteen85 was starting a side project with an anonymous vocalist. With three stellar tracks out to date, dvsn is the sleeper pop rnb hit of 2016. Its clean, soulful, and creative.”

Ibrahim Maalouf – Red & Black Light (20syl Remix)
“I was immediately entranced by the rich textures in the percussion and synth design, accented by samplings of Ibrahim Maalouf on trumpet. Falling in love with this track was a no brainer.”

Autograf – Metaphysical (Daktyl Remix)
“I first starting liking Daktyl when he remixed Japanese Wallpaper’s “Breathe In (ft.
Wafia)” last year and I feel like he did an even better job on this remix. Autograf is awesome to begin with, Daktyl touching the track is just flames.”

Andra Day – Rise Up (JR Nelson Remix)

esta. – AllNight
“If you’re not hip to Justin Bieber or esta. yet, just listen to this.”

Leon T. Pearl – You’ll Be Fine
“There’s just something about these vocals. I can’t stop listening to it. I originally found it through a nu-disco remix, but the original shines bright.”

kayjo. – trophy (ft. rahrah the savage)
“RahRah the Savage is a savage when it comes to vocals. He murders any beat he touches. Kayjo is a beast and murders any vocals he touches. It makes a good combo.”

Kiiara – Intention
“Kiiara is another amazing vocalist. She’s the white Beyoncé. Nuff said.”

unkown & SevnthWonder – Can I (ft. Devrano)
“In the flurry of music he’s been releasing lately, SevnthWonder put out this collab with unknown and Devrano, and its to die for. With a mix of adept synth and percussion work compunded by killer vocals, this track bangs.”

S’natra – Feelin’ Good (ft. Synead) (Prod. Ivan Jackson)
“Coming from half the creative mind of Brasstracks, Ivan Jackson, my good friend S’natra kills this upeat bright song. Save this one to cure any rainy day blues.”

FAULT Magazine Weekly Playlist: My Gold Mask

mygoldmask

We’ve been fans of Chicago based trio My Gold Mask since hearing “Voices to Ghosts” off their 2009 self-titled album so when they asked us to do a playlist, we of course jumped at the opportunity. A blend of industrial pop and more experimental sounds, the music of My Gold Mask calls to mind the 90s alternative styles of Garbage and MGM’s lead singer Gretta Rochelle could very well be a modern day Shirley Manson.

Take a listen below to some of MGM’s choice songs including several past collaborators Tying Tiffany, Mr. Kitty and more.

“These are simply songs and artists that inspire us in one way or another. They may not be direct influences…more just things we’re loving right now. But we feel they all sort of inform, in one way or another, where our head space was at during the creation of our new album Anxious Utopia.” – Gretta and Jack

Mr. Kitty – In Your Blood

“One of our favorite current artists. Lightness and darkness coexist with great melody. Mr. Kitty remixed our track ‘Battles’ and plays keyboard on our track ‘Lipstick Bruises’ which will be featured on our new album.”

Wax Idols – Deborah

“So badass. We love the sound and raw power of Wax Idols.”

Pat Benatar – We Live For Love (Live)

“When it comes to mixing hard rock vibes with dreamy synthpop and spot on melody….it just doesn’t get better than this.”

iamamiwhoami – Chasing Kites

“We’ve been listening to iamamiwhoami for quite some time and this is our favorite track. Inspiring and spacious feeling.”

The Soft Moon – Zeros

“We dig the post industrial sound of Soft Moon. Dark and moody…just how we like it.”

FKA Twigs – Two Weeks (Live on KEXP)

“FKA Twigs is royalty. This live version of Two Weeks is amazing. James has been using a Roland SPDSX in our live sets like this for a couple years now.”

Alex Zelenka (Feat VIRGO) – Out Of Touch

“We are fans of VIRGO and especially of this track produced by Crystal Castles engineer Alex Zelenka. Alex also recently remixed our track ‘Dangerous’.”

Tying Tiffany – One Second

“This is the first track we discovered of Tying Tiffany’s on Soundcloud and it instantly triggered repeat listens. Tiff also remixed our track ‘Dissipate’.”

Telepathe – Fuck You Up

“We really enjoy the tribal-like rhythms of Telepathe.”

Metric – Breathing Underwater

“We had the honor of opening for Metric at House Of Blues and were so impressed by their perfect synthesis of rock and synthpop.”

You’ve seen Jamie Campbell Bower everywhere ever since his acting debut in 2007 with ‘Sweeney Todd’. In the meanwhile, he’s done a Burberry campaign, started a band and played in the all-top fantasy film franchises (‘Twilight’, ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Mortal Instruments’, you name it, he’s done it). He’s the kind of character who uses all of his creative outlets when he’s going through shit and makes something worthwhile out of it. Living in a day and age where instant gratification is a given, Jamie Campbell Bower is a prime example of how sometimes you just have to work really hard and be patient in your pursuits.

On the Menswear cover of FAULT Issue 22, we catch up with the young star about his experiences within the industry, and where he hopes to take his craft.

You’ve worked with both Johnny Depp and Sir Ian McKellen. Which one of them stuck with you?

Johnny was really lovely to me, he could tell that I was nervous; he could tell that I was a bit rash and quite young. And with Ian I spent about five months. I tend to go a bit stir crazy when I’m on set just because it’s quite a weird experience, and Ian was always there, he was around when things would get a bit hectic. I think we come from the same genes, we’re pretty similar and he’s a phenomenal actor. I’ve always been the kind of person who’s a bit of a magpie. I’ve always taken little bits of other people’s performances or other people’s writing and tried to make them my own. Art is imitation at the end of the day. But yeah, I loved them both. I think of myself as quite a personable person. I like to talk; maybe I piss people off sometimes. But I like to find out about people’s lives and try to do the best that I can.

What about the music? What happened with The Darling Buds?

The music is going mental as well. We put The Darling Buds to bed at the beginning of this year. It’d been going for so long and I loved it, but there was something about it that didn’t seem like me. It was all very light and I’ve been through some hefty shit in the past year or so and I needed something that allowed me to rid myself of the things that really affected me. Music allows me to be me. To say what it is that I feel, how I feel, in an artistic fashion. I’m trying to be genuine and honest. I’m trying to be as real as I possibly can be on a day-to-day basis. And so, we changed the name of the band to Counterfeit and it’s the most raw and fucking real thing that I will have ever put out there. There are things out there that I haven’t told anyone and there are things out there that I’m nervous to talk about. But at the same time, they come across on the record and they come across beautifully. And it’s fucking loud. Jesus Christ, is it loud.

Of all the things that you’ve done so far, which ones are closest to your heart?

I couldn’t live without every single thing that I do. If my acting was to fall away, I’d be crushed. If my music was to fall away, I’d be crushed, if my creativity was taken away from me, I don’t know what I’d be. This isn’t to say that I define myself by what I do, I define myself by how real I am with what I say and what I give. I put so much effort and work into everything that I do that if one of them was taken away, it would feel like a part of me was missing. I wouldn’t be able to function anymore.

What’s your FAULT?

Because of the way that my mind works, I wake up and send emails to people at five o’clock in the morning and, within an hour, if I haven’t received a response, I’d lose my shit. I have to constantly remind myself that not everyone else is as mental as I am and that they’re not up at five o’clock in the morning. I need more patience. I need to learn to be mild, to be calm and to be calculated rather than be a fucking lunatic at all times.
