Mae Muller – dependent

Mae Muller dropped a brand new music video Wednesday for her song “dependent.”

The new video from the North London-based singer is directed by Sophia Ray, who has worked with artists like Lily Allen, Ty Dolla $ign and Amber Mark. You can see it by clicking right here.

Muller said this is one of her favorite videos she has ever done.

“I loved collaborating with the super talented Sophia Ray and the team that brought the concept of the song to life. The looks, the dancers, everything is on point! I really wanted to do this song justice with a stunning video and feel like we’ve really achieved that,” Muller said.

The song opens her debut EP, which is titled “no one else, not even you,” and it takes a look at the joy of finding love in combination with the fear of losing your individuality. The EP contains eight tracks and showcases Muller’s undeniably fearless and fun style of pop music.

She said she wrote the song at the beginning of a relationship at a time during which she could feel herself falling in love but felt scared at the same time.

“That’s what always happens when I start to fall for someone: instead of going with the flow and just enjoying myself, I start to panic a bit because of the power you have to give up,” she said. “This song is me being totally honest about not wanting to become dependent on someone, because my independence is so important to me.”

The song is co-written by Henrik Michelson of Electric, and it is produced and written with help from Rick Nowels, Jimmy Napes, Skyler Stonestreet and Kenny Beats.

At 23 years old, Muller has already racked up more than 100 million global streams and has been featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s A-List Pop, In My Room, Future Hits and more.

She also sold out a 2020 headline tour of the United Kingdom, proving her ability to build a fan base around the entire world.

Critics and press are also loving Muller.

GQ said, “Mae Muller’s witty and brutally honest lyrics set her apart from her peers.”

Flaunt said, “Mae Muller is your new favorite singerߪHer goal is to be a spokeswoman for this new generation, unveiling layers of authenticity, talent, beauty and confidence.”

Wonderland called her a “clear pop sensation in the making,” while The Guardian said listeners can “expect an abundance of attitude.”

M.O.D.O.K. HEAD GAMES

Showrunners for the upcoming Hulu series about the popular Marvel villain M.O.D.O.K. will also spearhead a brand new comic series with the character as the lead.

M.O.D.O.K. HEAD GAMES comes from Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum, who will showcase the leader of the terroristic organization AIM.

M.O.D.O.K. will be outsmarting the rest of the Marvel universe on his way to victory and domination, but this story is a bit more personal. He is haunted by memories of a family he doesn’t know, putting his power, and his brain, at risk.

You can see everything Oswalt and Blum had to say about the supervillain story in an exclusive interview from Marvel by clicking right here. You can also see brand new, never-before-seen pages of the interior of the books from Scott Hepburn, the artist of the upcoming run.

Oswalt said the writers of the show created such an amazing world for M.O.D.O.K. that they had to go further.

“We had so much creativity to burn that Jordan just said we should fill this in in a four-issue comic series as a background. I always love that, to be able to go even deeper into that world,” Oswalt said.

Blum added that he was excited to write the 616 version, or our world’s version, of M.O.D.O.K. specifically.

“We leapt at the chance to write the M.O.D.O.K. who had been there since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and put our spin on him and pull from a lot of the other versions of M.O.D.O.K. in the past. The character is very flexible and I think you can do a lot with him,” Blum said.

The premiere issue of the series will hit shelves of comic book shops everywhere Dec. 2, and you can keep an eye out for the series starring the historic villain streaming on Hulu in 2021.

Inhaler x Vevo DSCVR

Inhaler released two brand new videos through Vevo DSCVR on Wednesday for their songs titled “It Won’t Always Be Like This” and “When It Breaks.”

Vevo DSCVR focuses on developing up-and-coming artists through live performances, and they’ve carefully curated a catalog of musicians and bands in their spotlight.

Some of the artists include Billie Eilish, AB6IX and Alfie Templeman, and Vevo DSCVR has helped them reach wider audiences that may not have been exposed to their work yet.

The four members of Inhaler, Elijah Hewson, Robert Keating, Ryan McMahon and Josh Jenkinson, met in high school, bonding over bands like The Stone Roses, Joy Division, The Strokes, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Kings Of Leon and The Cure.

“It Won’t Always Be Like This” was their debut single, and it helped them to more than 25 million streams from a die-hard fan base.

The members explained “When It Breaks” as a song that communicates the anxiousness the entire world feels right now.

“It’s our interpretation of this strange and imperfect world we’ve come to live in,” the band said. “Things are gonna change and we are gonna be there when they do.”

Rolls-Royce Art Programme

Rolls-Royce announced the shortlist of artists for its inaugural moving-image Dream Commission.

Sondra Perry, Beatriz Santiago Muñoz, Martine Syms and Zhou Tao all made the shortlist for Muse, Rolls-Royce’s Art Programme.

The Dream Commission finds mid-career artists to be best representative and the best creators of moving-image concept artwork, and these artists were all tasked with creating art depicting dreams. The winner will be declared in 2021.

Torsten MüllerÖtvös, chief executive for Rolls-Royce said he looks for artists who share Rolls-Royce’s passion for pushing technical and conceptual boundaries.

“We are delighted to announce four shortlisted moving-image artists for the inaugural Dream Commission, each of whom have outstanding reputations,” MüllerÖtvös said. “The art of moving-image is a creative and avant-garde genre and we are pleased to be supporting this medium at this critical time for the industry. To commission artists during a pandemic is an act of determination and faith in the power of culture to inform and transform our lives; a quality at Rolls-Royce that we fully endorse.”

All finalists were selected by an international jury, and each created a work of short-form moving-image art to explore the notion of “Dreams.”

Sondra Perry has a wide range of tools, including AI, animation, performance and video. She uses them to explore race, identity and technology. Her piece, titled “Lineage for a Phantom Zone,” looks at lineage, longing and memory through her own archived footage.

“The piece begins with me playing a theremin, using the touchless liminal instrument to conjure a dream space with multi-dimensional sound,” she said. “Growing up, my grandmother had a picture of herself on the land she was raised on in North Carolina on her dresser. I think about that picture often and I wanted to reflect on her history, that land, and my experience of it through images. I collapse time, space, and two generations of family to visualize a life dream that was mutated through imagination, images, and video and passed down through my DNA.”

Beatriz Santiago Muñoz is based in Puerto Rico and is an artist and filmmaker. She makes films after lengthy research, observation and documentation, and her piece, titled “The Source,” uses photos of people, places and experiences to strike the viewer.

She uses Puerto Rico to elicit the emotions and ideas of the piece, and it comes with a strong sense of history and culture. She said her vision for “The Source” begins with an experience.

“My son is standing at the source of the Río Caguitas. Something seems to stop. Is it the ancient rock, the loud cold water pushing, the slowness above us, the smell? An interval,” she said. “Reading his translation of Proust to Haitian Kreyòl, a project undertaken for its own sake and without readers in mind, my colleague writer and translator Guy Regis Junior had said the task had been both full of pleasure and sacrificial. From there, there is an opening- up in the interval, in that time/space between one language, history and sensorial world, and another”

Martine Syms is based in Los Angeles and combines grit, humor and social commentary in her art. Her entry, titled “Kita’s World,” dives into Syms as a person biologically, psychologically and sociologically.

She said her world is a combination of “core material, broken samples, seductive loops and heavy theory.”

“Symptomatic of the contemporary condition, I was inspired by an anecdote by a prominent theorist in which intimate technology appears to read our minds,” she said.  “Everything has a subtext, ulterior motives—but tech flattens everything out. It can speak our unconscious; we unravel equally in realms both real and digital. There is a dissolution of difference but no real plurality. I’m using Kita, an homage to an avatar from my childhood, to think through this tension.”

Zhou Tao of Guangzhou uses video, drawing and photography together. His submission, titled “Three Hundred Miles Southwest,” makes populated areas seem mythological.

“Three hundred miles from the dangerous peak to the southeast, those forgotten areas not covered by the high-speed network are at the end of the geography,” he said. “Between a wolf seeker with mountains as a companion and the 37th ‘remote style’ ecological model; between the giant reliefs in the narrow valley and the legendary gate into the four-dimensional; the engineering bases connected from one terminal to another scattered among the mountains, presenting a future fable that has long passed away of this mythological place.”

Following the nominations of 23 artists, these four were chosen unanimously by the jury, and the statement from that jury reads as follows:

“The Dream Commission offers an opportunity for artists to have a space to develop their aesthetics and to be able to delve deeply into an area where they can have an autonomy to make a work which can resonate. The quality of the long list that was presented to us made this an incredibly engaging, but also difficult selection process. The breadth of practice that was selected for us to consider was extraordinary – the sophistication of ideas and expression across this media was so inspiring. We have succeeded in selecting a variety of artists from different countries, cultures and different kinds of artistic thinking.”

The Dream Commission accepts entries from any medium used to create moving-image art, like experimental film, video, animation, immersive and participatory installations and content presented in non-screen formats.

Once this cycle concludes after two years, another cycle will begin to welcome in a brand new set of landmark artists and creators.

At-Home Dentistry: Dos & Don’ts

By Justin Lyons

What are some of the craziest things you’ve done with your teeth at home? Have you tied one end of a string to your loose tooth and the other end of a string to your front door, then slammed it to pull the tooth out? Have you used pliers to pull a tooth? How about bleaching your teeth?

With viral TikTok and YouTube videos popularizing these practices, healthcare professionals are reasonably and rightfully concerned.

Dentist and author of Age With Style: Your Guide To A Youthful Smile & Healthy Living Dr. Nammy Patel wonders why anyone would perform self-surgery and risk trauma.

“Even before the pandemic, some people were resorting to DIY measures while trying to be cost-effective, but many of these actions bring significant risk to the teeth and gums,” Patel said. “People aren’t realizing that while it may be interesting and cheaper to try these dental actions on their own, it’s going to cost you more money, time, and pain before the mistakes are corrected by a professional.”

She specifically cites three at-home procedures people have taken up after losing insurance or while staying home. You should NOT be trying these three things at home:

1. Pulling a tooth: Dr. Patel says to never do this yourself. It can cause cavitation and infections in the bone that used to hold the tooth. Dental tools are designed to clean the area and remove the tooth, and trying to pull your tooth at home can lead to a snapped root, infection and surgical procedure. Just don’t do it because it might lead you to the dentist’s office anyways.

2. Bleaching: Dr. Patel says bleaching can lead to gum damage, burning in the gums, gum recession, tooth loss, enamel damage and tooth sensitivity.

“Some of the people you see doing this on social media are using hydrogen peroxide purchased online that has many times the amount allowed in regulated online teeth-whitening products,” Patel said.

3. Filing: First of all, ouch. Second of all, Dr. Patel says you can remove too much of your tooth if you try to smooth rough edges or adjust shape. It can change the way you bite and even cause jaw problems, specifically TMJ disorders.

There is dental care you can provide for yourself at home. In fact, Dr. Patel encourages three things. You SHOULD be doing these things at home:

1. Make your own toothpaste: Dentists provide suggested lists of ingredients as well as lists of toxic ingredients.

“By making toothpaste yourself you can create a better product, one without dangerous chemicals, and it’s cost-effective, too,” Dr. Patel said, adding that her toothpaste contains coconut oil and other natural oils and spices like cinnamon and peppermint.

2. Make your own mouthwash: Over-the-counter mouthwash typically contains alcohol, which is bad for the gums and can dry the mouth. Dr. Patel’s mouthwash is composed of peppermint oil, On Guard, distilled water and salt.

3. Power up your daily oral care: Dr. Patel suggests a water flosser, as it reaches cracks and crevices that typical floss does not.

“It’s easier to use than floss and provides a deeper clean with a pressurized stream of water, which pulsates to blast away food particles and built-up plaque,” Patel said.

She also suggested using a sonic toothbrush over an electric toothbrush to eliminate more bacteria.

It’s important to be careful and knowledgeable when it comes to arm-chair dentistry. If you try to avoid a seat in the dentist’s chair, you might not have a choice if you cause damage irreparable without surgery.

Toosii x Sinners Prayer

TOOSII RELEASES VIDEO FOR SINNERS PRAYER Poetic Pain Out Now

Watch Sinners Prayer Video HERE

Listen to Poetic Pain HERE

Today, South Coast Music Group star Toosii releases the third video, Sinners Prayer, from his new project, Poetic Pain, which dropped Friday. The cinematic visual finds Toosiialone on a barren street, creating a stark backdrop for the charisma that the Raleigh, NC, rapper brings to his music. Similarly, his contrasting all-black outfit and copious drip highlight the track’s dark mood and the lyrics’ defiant rags-to-riches proclamations. Watch the video for Sinners Prayer HERE and stream Poetic Pain HERE.

Directed by Toosii’s frequent collaborator Edgar Esteves (Chris Brown, Pedro Capo x Alicia Keys x Farruko) and shot in Los Angeles at night, the video for Sinners Prayer is another haunting, stirring statement from one of rap’s most exciting young voices. Shining in the glow of streetlights, Toosii walks us through his world. He’s alone but doesn’t need anybody else. Sinners Prayer sets the emotional stakes for Poetic Pain, which Toosii says is rooted in both the trauma that he’s experienced, and the cathartic release music gives him. My pain is a work of art, he says. It’s equivalent to poetry. It’s a beautiful thing and it describes me.

Following the recent release of the Right Now track and video, Sinners Prayer and its visual double down on Toosii’s quest for redemption and personal growth. They also reaffirm the bold vision he introduced on his last mixtape, Platinum Heart. That set has since amassed over 200 million global streams, hit No. 1 on Billboardߣs Heatseekers Albums chart, and launched Toosii into the top 10 of Rolling Stone’s Breakthrough 25 chart.

Born in Syracuse, NY, and raised in Raleigh, NC, Toosii has won acclaim for his poignant, melodic flow and autobiographical storytelling since signing with South Coast Music Group (the label that catalyzed DaBaby’s rise as one of music’s biggest new stars in recent years). On Sinners Prayer, Toosii faces the camera with zero distractions, demonstrating his willingness to pour out unguarded emotion in order to offer some insight into his world.

About South Coast Music Group:

South Coast Music Group is the first major record label out of the Carolinas to produce an artist as successful as DaBaby. Owned by Arnold Taylor, the American label is focused predominantly on hip hop, rap and urban music. Taylor and Vice President Daud Carter are two businessmen on a mission to continue elevating the label that has stunned the world in 2019 with the release of DaBaby’s Baby on Baby. The label’s roster also includes Blacc Zacc, Toosii, TiaCorine, and Big Mali.

Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness

The Untitled Space is pleased to present a group exhibition and public art series “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness” presented in collaboration with SaveArtSpace and Art4Equality. The two-part exhibition features an empowering public art series of 10 billboards each by different artists launching on September 21, 2020 in a variety of locations throughout New York City, to coincide with a gallery exhibition opening on September 26, 2020 at The Untitled Space featuring the work of over 50 contemporary artists. Revolving around the theme of “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness” the public art series and group exhibition is curated by Indira Cesarine, founder of The Untitled Space and Art4Equality.

The gallery will feature the unique artworks displayed on the billboards (presented by SaveArtSpace) along with an exhibition of many additional works in a variety of mediums including painting, drawing, photography, video, and sculpture inspired by the words “Equality,” “Life,” “Liberty,” and “The Pursuit of Happiness,” which will be on view at the gallery through October 17, 2020. The Untitled Space is honored to collaborate with non-profit SaveArtSpace and support the programming of Art4Equality, an initiative that supports the creation of empowering equality themed exhibitions and public art.

Curatorial Statement:

“’What do these words mean to you: “Equality,” “Life,” “Liberty,” “The Pursuit of Happiness”? We live in an unprecedented time, our liberties robbed by a global pandemic, which laid painfully bare the inequities that have plagued the most vulnerable in our society for far too long. Political polarization in the United States is reaching critical mass with a divisive political system at war. Realities of social inequality and racial injustice are challenging our ability to have confidence in a promising future. With the 2020 elections approaching, I felt that it was a crucial time to create an opportunity for artists to respond, with the artwork presented in a public platform where it can reach an audience of millions of people every day and promote an inclusive dialogue.

The billboard transformed into an art display is an innovative, and ultimately accessible way to present contemporary art, transforming spaces normally dedicated to advertising into public art that has power and impact. We received such an overwhelming response to the exhibit opportunity, which was presented via an open call, that I expanded the project to include a gallery group exhibition featuring over 50 artists who created artworks inspired by the theme – most of which were created during quarantine. The public art series and exhibition “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness” seeks to empower, enlighten, and shed a ray of hope in a city that has been under a dark cloud, in a country that is in tatters not only by an invisible virus, but also by political and civil unrest. As we navigate through this difficult time, “Art4Equality x Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness” celebrates art as activism, giving voices to a diverse array of contemporary artists from all backgrounds, ages, and genders. I’m honored to guest curate the public art series for SaveArtSpace and hope viewers will be inspired and motivated by the public art billboards and exhibition artwork.” – Artist & Curator Indira Cesarine

Ty Bri's Sweet Lick Mixtape Cover Art

Ty Bri – Sweet Lick

Today, 22-year old Cleveland artist, Ty Bri emerges as the next young female rapper to join the new class with the release of her debut mixtape, Sweet Lick. She is also sharing the video for the bouncy Philly Ferrari produced, “Wake Up” featuring Atlanta rapper Mulatto, which premiered earlier today on NYLON.

Along with her excited nine-track mixtape, Ty Bri also announces that she has signed with District 18 Entertainment/Capital Structure/RCA Records. District 18 Entertainment is the joint venture with RCA Records founded by Brooklyn Johnny, who is best known for developing the career of Cardi B.

Best known for her tracks “Gimme Sum Money,” “Bobbin” and “Candy Lady,” Ty Bri is quickly becoming a standout in the rising female rap scene. She has opened for acts like Wale, Megan Thee Stallion and Lil Baby on tour. She performed alongside Mulatto and Flo Milli for the “Girls Trap Too” tour earlier this year and has also been co-signed by Cardi B and Rico Nasty.

Enjoy all the bops on Sweet Lick as we anxiously await for more next bad-ass tracks from Ty Bri.

About Ty Bri:

East Cleveland rapper Ty Bri first caught the public’s eye by making freestyle videos on Instagram. Her dope look and clever punchlines grew her popularity quickly making it hard to believe she just started rapping in 2016. While she compares herself to no other artists, Ty’s musical influences include Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill. She plans to change the stereotypes of female artists because her bars are for real. Ty Bri also enjoys giving back to her community and motivating young girls. She has even included the Shaw High School girls’ band and dancers in performances. Ty started to take over the Midwest when she remixed Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up,” which was later  added into rotation on radio all over Ohio. She is also featured on Ray Jr.’s song “Big Tuck” and “Cook” by DJ Ryan Wolf feat. RootaBang. Since performing at Z1079’s Summer Jam and White Out in 2018 and 2019, Ty Bri received early co signs from other female artists such as Trina, KashDoll and DreamDoll.

ZAZ10TS Artistic Billboards

ZAZ10TS has curated and presented a new concept of art called “In Between.”

This new exhibition can be seen on ZAZ Corner, right in the heart of Time Square. LED billboards are being used to display the artwork for 15 seconds at a time with commercial messages every two minutes. The display will showcase a new artist each month beginning September.

Tzili Charney, the founder of ZAZ Corner, is undertaking this project to display art different from the urban environment. Different artists, organizations, universities and cultural institutions will work together to achieve that goal by providing different art styles.

The initial featured artist will be Ben Hagari, whose “About Face” video series was shot entirely at home during the pandemic. Quarantine protocols forced Hagari to get creative with colors, space, subjects and composition. The result uses a faceless protagonist whose expressions are completely concealed by household items. The subject lacks features and stands and wears clothes backwards.

“The scenarios portray a mundane existence in a world whose marks have been erased. Books have no titles or words, photographs are blanked out, labels are removed; we are left with data. It generates a binary structure: backward and forward, front and rear, serious and funny,” Hagari said.

Artists who would like to participate in “In Between” can submit their art right here, and anyone looking for more information on the project can click right here.
