New "What's In My Bag?" Episode with Superorganism

Superorganism - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

We had a fun time talking with London-based cross-cultural indie pop band Superorganism during a recent shopping trip to Amoeba Hollywood. Orono Noguchi, Soul, B, and Ruby picked out records by some of their favorite artists, including the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Tobias Jesso Jr, Kanye West, and Carole King and introduced us to cat ASMR.

Superorganism is a band of non-conformists. Bump into any of the eight members (Orono, Emily, Harry, Ruby, B, Robert, Tucan and Soul) in the street -- a contrasting collection of disparate and idiosyncratic individuals -- and you might never know they’re in a band together, let alone all live in the same house. Superorganism’s difference comes from a kind of permanent outsider status. With members from the U.K., Japan, New Zealand, Korea and Australia, they bonded via the internet rather than one geographical location, finding each other on forums while nerding out about music. Their similarities eventually brought them all together IRL, culminating in a mass migration to an unassuming terraced house in East London that they soon turned into an energized creative hub.

Freaks of The Industry: Bay Area Hip Hop Shot by B+ is the descriptively titled new photo exhibit by photographer Brian Cross (aka B+) at San Francisco’s Family Affair in the Lower Haight. The Bay-centric visual display includes photos of such NorCal hip-hoppers as The Coup and members of the Hieroglyphics and Solesides (later Quannum) crews including DJ Shadow (whose Entroducing...album cover art he's credited for) who was among those at the opening party a few night ago. Billed as “a visual mixtape of various artists repping the Bay outside the mainstream,”  the large scale image display will run through November 17th when B+ will be back in the house.

The Irish born, LA based photographer was also there on opening night last Thursday. Among those in attendance was veteran Bay Area hip-hop photographer Timi D… who praised the exhibit calling it, “a very tight but bold presentation of images that gives a very personable feel to the viewer.” Timi, who took the accompanying photos above and left for the Amoeblog,  added that the exhibit’s, “big prints from film scans offer a classic look and feel.” B+ exhibit at Family Affair at 683 Haight Street thru Nov 17th.
