Friday Mixtape: Ripley Johnson of Wooden Shjips picks his summer jams

Bradley_kerl Regulars / Friday Mixtape Friday Mixtape: Texan artist Bradley Kerl's mix to ease you into a hot humid summer

We’re longtime fans of Texan artist Bradley Kerl. His still lifes are little portals into his own life, gathering bits and bobs together, and there’s always a bunch of calming plants featured too. A couple of weeks ago we published an interview with Parquet Courts’ A.Savage where the artist and musician told us that coincidentally he and Bradley were old pals, they studied painting together and were even a band for a number of years called Teenage Cool Kids.

Grads2018_2 Regulars / The Graduates 2018 To postgrad or not to postgrad? Six top creatives share their thoughts on master's degrees

The long, sleepless nights have finally paid off. The bachelor’s degree is yours and there’s a picture of you, certificate in hand, to prove it. But, as the celebrations begin to die down, a creeping existential angst surmounts you. What lies next? Who do I want to be? What do I want to spend my days doing? Finding a replacement to the long weeks of university term time can be tough and, to many, a postgraduate degree can seem like the obvious choice.

Designers Gordon Reid and Callum Stephenson’s World Cup beer mat project began, quite fittingly, whilst celebrating the end of a full on project together by watching football in the pub. “We were laughing about various absurd moments that have happened [in the World Cup] over the years — the Zidane head butt, Lineker shitting himself etc and decided there was definitely something in it for a project.”

Tan lines, tulle tutus and sequins is what you can expect from photographer Jonnie Chambers’ latest series, Txatxarramendi. Inspired by the small Spanish island of the same name, Jonnie has incorporated a number of holiday-references — wet hair, sun kissed skin and a general carefree demeanour — in his dreamy new shoot for Coeval magazine.

George Wylesol is an illustrator, designer and writer who follows his intuition. Originally from Philadelphia but based in Baltimore, the American creative’s portfolio is a real mixture of styles and subject matters and is one we’ve long been a fan of.

Wooden_shjips

This week’s Friday Mixtape is by Portland-based experimental rock band, Wooden Shjips! With an avid following across the world of drone heads nodding along to their records over the past decade, fans will already be well aware that the band released their fifth record, and first in five years, V. earlier this month.

To celebrate Ripley Johnson, a recognisable figure in Wooden Shjips and his side project with Sanae Yamada, Moon Duo, has made us this week’s mixtape of his favourite summer jams.

It’s Nice That: Why have you picked these songs?

Ripley Johnson: I picked some favourite summer jams. It’s just starting to feel like summer here in Portland, so I’ve been jamming the appropriate music.

INT: When or where should this mixtape be listened to?

RJ: Driving down a country road with the windows rolled down, in a hack circle, sitting on the porch smoking a doobie, on the beach.

INT: What song or album did you listen to as teenagers and why?

RJ: We use to take psychedelics and roam the woods with a boom box. We primarily listened to the original psychedelic classics: Jimi, the Dead, Pink Floyd, Allman Bros, Jefferson Airplane, Dylan, Neil, etc… I had a poster of Keith Richards and some funky velvet black light posters.

INT: Can you tell us a little about your new record and the artwork too?

RJ: We conceived the album last summer, knowing it would come out this summer, hence that running theme. The other general theme is optimism in the face of existential doom, since doom has been in the air lately.

For the artwork we wanted the V symbol to be central, to represent peace and resistance, in the spirit of the original hippies and Aleister Crowley. And we wanted the nature elements because I believe nature holds all of the keys. We asked Jaime Zuverza to do the artwork because he’s just clearly in the zone right now and we knew he would get it. It seems like every piece he does is better than the last.

INT: If a feature film about Wooden Shjips was to be made, what song would be on the trailer and why?

RJ: Probably Shrinking Moon for You, because that’s the song that started it all for us.

    “There was a strong female presence in my upbringing,” photographer, publisher and all-around-creative Rudi Edwards tells It’s Nice That. “I know that might seem obvious to say as a woman, but my mum is half Italian and super fiery — a real ‘her way or no way’ kind of woman.” Rudi decided to honour the fierce women that helped shape her feminist values and progressive outlook through her new magazine, Realest. The first issue, which launched last month, offers a refreshing take on the female experience and presents the reader with a number of relatable women from all walks of life.

    In the run-up to the release of Printed Pages SS18, we’ve asked a selection of influential people in creative publishing to choose three seminal magazine covers that they loved, and made an impact on them and their work. The magazines could be from any time, place or niche of the publishing world. In this series, they’ll tell us why these particular covers left a lasting impression.

    Tickets are now available for our next Nicer Tuesdays event, taking place on the evening of 26 June at Oval Space. Our speaker line-up this month features illustrator and member of collective Le Gun, Robert Rubbish; founder and editor-in-chief of Season zine Felicia Pennant; animation director Nicos Livesey; and Belgian graphic design studio Atelier Brenda.Graphic design studio Atelier Brenda – though often referred to colloquially, and mysteriously, as if Brenda is a single entity – is actually made up of three female graphic and type designers, Nana Esi, Sophie Keij and Amélie Bakker. Brenda is their alter ego, with a character to match, and a way for the trio to join forces post university and garner clients – which worked a treat. Each designer has their own graphic style and skillset, which they bring to the studio’s unique and lively work. Nana and Sophie will be joining us to share their latest creations.
    Irreverent and renowned illustration collective Le Gun have long been staples of the London creative scene, and Robert Rubbish is one of its charismatic members. Not only known for his work, he’s a familiar sight around town too, particularly Soho, the subject of much of his work and recent book, Spiritus Soho_. Depicting the area’s idiosyncratic characters and ambience to a T, the images show Robert is a master storyteller, so we’re very keen to hear him tell us more from the Nicer Tuesdays podium.

Daragh-soden-photography-itsnicethat-list Work / Photography Daragh Soden’s portrait of Toulon captures its rich history as well as its modern personality

Toulon is a city in southern France with a large military harbour on the Mediterranean coast. It is also a city with a rich history: it was Toulon that Napoléon Bonaparte captured from the Anglo-Spanish forces in 1973, releasing the city to Maximilien Robespierre; the man who declared the motto of the French Revolution as “Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité ”. It was this history that Irish photographer Daragh Soden set out to capture while simultaneously reflecting its modern personality when he travelled there to make a portrait of the city.

Every major event — a wedding, holiday or BBQ — is always attached to the saying: “We can’t control the weather!” It’s a saying that however many times it’s said, and how you know it’s probably always going to be true, you just wish it wasn’t. Imagine! Anyway, it hasn’t stopped scientists trying to control the weather through modification, and the methods and implications of doing so are catalogued photographically in Sarah Piegay Espenon’s first book, Humanise Something Free of Error.

Kuba_ryniewicz-firefighters-photography-13list Work / Photography Kuba Ryniewicz on photographing his firefighting family

When photographer Kuba Ryniewicz attended a family member’s wedding last year, he didn’t expect to come across the subject of his next shoot: voluntary firefighters. Kuba was born in Poland but has been based in Newcastle for the past 14 years and has, during this time, accumulated an impressive portfolio of work; his collaborations include the likes of Fantastic Man, Cos and Apartamento. Photography, Kuba says, played a formative role in his upbringing. “My uncle was a photographer and set up a darkroom in our basement. I spent a lot of my childhood posing for test photoshoots whenever he bought a new piece of equipment. But it was only as a teenager that I started to develop my own photography skills when my uncle passed on his darkroom equipment to me,” Kuba tells It’s Nice That.
