I'm very fond of Gypsophilia's brand of klezmer-infused jazz, and so I'm very excited to learn that they've got a new release. Ross from Gypsophilia sez:
"Horska" is our newest release and is many things: a 7" vinyl
single with a dub remix, a 6 song digital EP, and a brand new stop
motion animation music video.
We recorded the tracks for “Horska” at Montreal’s Hotel2Tango with
noted producer Howard Bilerman (of Arcade Fire fame). The single,
composed by guitarist Alec Frith, plays with superimposing a Jewish
hora over a ska riddim – hence the title. The 7" includes a dub
reggae-style remix as a b-side. The other tracks on the EP range
from the nostalgic-sounding “Bir Hakeim” and “Stikm,” which
showcase Matt Myer on (mostly muted) horn, to the at-times frenzied
Klezmer-influenced piece “Corentin Cariou” and the melancholy “Oh
my Oma,” featuring Gina Burgess’ plaintive violin.
As a partner to the song a stop-motion animation was created by
Halifax artist Sydney Smith and filmmaker Jason Levangie in the
style of their beautiful 2011 video "Agricola & Sarah". This time around
Gypsophilia's music is set to a vignette about a bumbling inventor
(a likeness of our bass player Adam Fine) trying to get his
mechanical flying machine off the ground.
The Gypsophilias have made the dub remix available as a free download for Boing Boing readers for a limited time

When ex-CIA agent Tom King teamed up with a group of extremely talented writers to reboot Marvel’s “Vision” in 2015, he had a lot of material to work with — the character had begun as a kind of super-android in the 1940s and had been reincarnated many times, through many twists and turns: what King & Co did with Vision both incorporated and transcended all that backstory, in an astounding tale that Ta-Nehisi Coates called “the best comic going right now.” With the whole run collected in two volumes, there’s never been a better time to see just how far comic storytelling can go.
Aliaksei Zholner’s Youtube account features various small, clever papercraft engines that he’s made over the years, but the latest one, measuring a mere 18 x 13 x 22 mm, is the daintiest, most lovely one yet, and well worth the long hiatus since Zholner’s previous outing.
