I've been listening to an advance copy of the new Fischerspooner album, Odyssey and it's really grown on me. The art troupe extrordinaire have returned to prove that they're for real, with some incredibly catchy melodies and lyrics. It's clear "Just Let Go" will be the breakout single, but equally fab is the sassy "Never Win" or the more contemplative "All We Are" with rifts that harken back to the Cure's "A Forest". Definitely worth picking up when the album is released in April 2005. For now, you can check out Casey and his new Napoleon Dynamite coiffure in the "Just Let Go" video here.

Anyone who knows me knows I am obsessed with music and images. I have also harbored a secret desire to explore the relationships between sound and image; to "see" what a song sounds like, and to "hear" what an image looks like. Blogger and software engineer Tim Omernick takes my obsession one further with his innovative SoundOfAnImage software, which converts images into music. Sometimes the music even sounds like music, especially if you play images with a lot of structure and/or symmetry to them. Here's the results of some experiments with recent pictures from Rem Koolhaas' and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture's amazing Seattle public library. They might not make your iTunes playlist, but they're very interesting nonetheless.
