Have you heard this? It’s “Ride Operator” by Disco Cisco and the Dreampunks – a bouncy jam driven by lush, melodic keyboard playing and punctuated with a few post-punk flourishes. The vocals are alluring, the lyrics are smart, and it ends quickly enough to demand repeat listens. I’m excited to hear what these Dreampunks do next.
Actually, I’m being kind of an asshole right now. I played lots of the instruments on this and produced it. Sarah is Disco Cisco. Obviously I’m not impartial.
In other news, I turned one of the bedrooms in our apartment into a recording studio. It’s called Murderland. Maybe I can record your band? You have to let me “get weird with it.”

On Saturday, Sarah (aka Disco Cisco) was part of a group show at Pehrspace. She made miniatureMUSEUM for PAIR, a diorama show with the theme of “parallel worlds.”
The girl’s got a unique artistic vision and a knack for turning her aesthetic into reality. For this project, she made a seven-story dollhouse full of theme rooms and curated a miniature art show to go inside of it. I got to see her go through the different stages of developing the piece slowly over a little more than a month and I was really impressed with the final piece. I’m excited for the next project she undertakes!
Sarah’s miniatureMUSEUM will be on display until August 31; if you want to see it online, there are pictures at her website, Intergalactic Fantastic.
I actually participated in the piece as well. I contributed a video, which we displayed in one of the rooms. Here’s the video that I made, entitled “Travels of Patches:”
I wanted to do something sweet and simple while experimenting with techniques I’d not previously used. I had fun making this little video collage. I filmed all of the stuff with Patches, and the backgrounds were sourced from Youtube.
Here’s what the movie looks like in the museum. Photo by Adrian Zaw.
In addition to contributing the video, I wrote about Sarah’s museum and several of her fellow dioramists’ works for seancarnage.com. Here’s that article.
