From West Coast Rapper to reincarnated Jamaican Rastafarian, the artist formerly known as Snoop Dogg is releasing a new analogue sound. Check out the first track of Snoop Lion's latest album, recorded on vinyl!
Reincarnated, Snoop’s latest LP will drop later this year making it his first record released under his new pseudonym Snoop Lion.
As you can hear in the track, the song sounds pretty retro, could be because it’s done on vinyl, check out photographs of the process.
For those of you who need a little visual accompaniment, we found this video:
So, what do you think, should Snoop explore this new direction or stick to what he knows best?
Our latest LomoAmigos come from Odense and Copenhagen, Denmark. Say hello to Kissaway Trail, a three-piece band that impressed the world with large string arrangements, epic harmonies and beautiful melodies since releasing its self-titled debut album in 2007. Armed with a La Sardina camera, the trio went analog and recorded memories through intimate lomographs.
Just as we love the grainy sound of a vinyl record playing our latest jazz favorites, we choose analog photography for its natural imperfections that remind us so wondrously of our own reality. Its shortcomings are what make an analog photograph so appealing. We talked to Adriano Guimarães Sodré, a 26-year-old cinematographer, DJ, and photographer who carefully composes pictures that capture a solitary moment in its most natural beauty.
It's a huge pleasure to introduce our latest LomoAmigo, the fantastically gifted musician James Vincent McMorrow. This year, James launched his new album 'Post Tropical' and we couldn't wait to put a La Sardina camera in hands to play with for the Summer. He took the camera with him on his tour and snapped some truly cool shots. Check them out and read our interview with James below!
Our LomoAmigo, Asher Moss, shows us his best photographs from a week with other creatives to explore photography, filmmaking, modeling, and music. He escaped to Joshua Tree for three days with the LomoChrome Purple and a few other artists. Check out the vibrant purples and blues that make the LomoChrome Purple, as shown in the Asher Moss' photographs.
The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
