HEDI SLIMANE ROCK DIARY / PHOENIX

Oops, it turns out drafts don't automatically become posts if you let them sit in your account long enough... So yes, a bit overdue, but still pretty cool: Hedi Slimane (do I still have to mention he's my favourite photographer every time I do a post about him? yes? ok then: HE'S MY FAVOURITE!) taking a peek in the Phoenix studio while they're recording their new album. (And I hope you're all familiar with the wonderful French band Phoenix? You know, those guys from Versailles who make great music? The lead singer Thomas Mars who's Sofia Coppola's beau and who also looks A LOT like the young Steve Jobs?)

The pictures date back from May 2011 and were shot in New York where the 4 Phoenix boys (Thomas Mars, Laurent Brancowitz, Christian Mazzalai and Deck D'Arcy) were recording their new album. Can't wait to hear the finished album but I'm pretty sure we'll have to wait for that for at least another couple of months. I'm sure it'll be as amazing as their other ones though.

And here's a little something something to keep your headphones busy. This is my most played Phoenix song in iTunes, but they have SO many great songs so if you like this one be sure to check out the rest of them.

I love that they're all B&W. It adds so much more atmosphere. x hivenn

Wasn't Heidi also the designer for Dior Homme a while back? These shots are so cool. Check out the ivories on that keyboard! I love Pheonix...
