Art| Veiw New Work by Martin Wittfooth

The History of Martin Wittfooth:

Martin Wittfooth was born in Toronto in 1981, and spent most of his childhood in Finland, moving back to Toronto in 1993 where he earned his BAA in Illustration from Sheridan College in 2003. He currently lives and works as an illustrator and fine artist in New York City, where he earned his MFA at the School of Visual Arts. Wittfooth’s oil paintings explore disquieting themes of industry and nature, unhinged evolution, the clash of old ideologies with modern fears, and the growing shadow of the human footprint on the earth. Set in atmospheric landscapes rendered over many paint layers on canvas, linen, or wood panels, these themes are realized through a combination of symbolism, the juxtaposition of visual narratives, and the displacement of expected realities. The worlds created in Wittfooth’s paintings implore the viewer to question the status quo, to challenge that which is taken for granted, and to proceed with caution on our present course.

The Review:

As art lovers we love the color schemes and character designed in the collection released by Wittfooth. These pieces at a quick glance would appear to be Wittfooth’s version of animal art dedicated to Alice in Wonderland. After taking a detailed gaze and allowing our minds to be creative we notice several pieces that hinted on a few political and cultural insights. For example, the rabbit on a bed of batteries can be looked at as the Energizer Bunny and the marketing surrounding those promises. The bull on a skyscrapper can be looked at as the ever so popular symbol for the Wall Street Bull. These are just the ideas that came to our heads here at the GoodGarbs headquarters. Tell Us What you get from these pieces and how they made you feel at first glance.

Lifestyle| Brooklyn Grooming’s ‘Pilgrim’s Machine Oil’ & more

machineoil

• Our great friends at Pistol PR have delivered another great brand for us to bring to our readers and this time it is a locally based brand reigning from Brooklyn, New York. With a very descriptive name like “Brooklyn Grooming” we are sure you get the idea of what this brand offers instantly, but their presentation and product supplies a great feeling of cleanliness and well grooming. Today Brooklyn Grooming, is unveiling their latest organic moisturizer dubbed ‘Pilgrim’s Machine Oil’. This wellness product comes in a designer flask that makes this product that much more appealing to today’s gentleman.

Pilgrim’s Machine Oil promises to keep the land down under dry and fragrant without resorting to irritating talc and messy creams. The non greasy organic moisturizer is designed to act like an engine coolant and lubricant for troublesome hot spots. With the help of the naturally effective, highly emollient castor oil and the greaseless, rejuvenating Kukui nut oil, Brooklyn Grooming’s Pilgrim’s Machine Oil stops painful chaffing that comes from sweating and working long hours by fighting the root of the problem.

MachineOil

Derived from three essential oils—tea tree, lavender and cedar wood— these natural ingredients work together to create a healing foundation of relief that is effective, anti bacterial, soothing, regenerating and anti inflammatory. “When I was doing research I tried several products ranging from chamois cream to powders and found that both products missed one essential ingredient, oil,” says Brooklyn Grooming’s co founder Mckenzie Santiago. “The challenge was coming up with a formula that would be relatively greaseless, with a pleasant scent and packaging that was unique, masculine and timeless.”

Many chafing products on the market today are powder or cream based. The effects of these products are only short lived since powders and creams are only active until they encounter moisture, which then turns to paste and often makes a bad situation worse. Oils are an essential tool for keeping bacteria at bay by providing a barrier, lasting much longer than creams and powders to keep problem areas dry and painful chaffing on the defensive.

PMO

"We blend essential oils to create a healing foundation of relief, and we then reinforce that with the all natural, anti microbial power of castor oil, eliminating and preventing the irritation associated with galled, abraded skin,” says Santiago. “Beyond greasing your gears, Pilgrim's also provides a refreshing scent to ease your transition from the speedway to the show room."

Stored in a convenient travel sized metal flask, Pilgrim’s can be easily kept in a gym bag for post workout relief or packed in a suitcase to keep chafing at bay when traveling. Whenever chafing strikes, Pilgrim’s Machine Oil targets your problem areas to help you feel free and easy, like a well oiled machine.

Music| Listen To New Music by Drake “How Bout Now”

• Happy Music Monday! We are bringing our readers/listeners the best music we can find daily and naturally Drake makes the list effortlessly. It has been a while since the Canadian rapper has released as solo hit, but today he returns with a soulful and heartfelt track titled “How Bout Now“. Drake’s last solo release was “0 to 100/The Catch Up” which gave fans something for the summer to enjoy, and I am sure fans will be getting cozy to this Jodeci sampled track. Using one of his favorite musical influences, Drake lets the iconic music band Jodeci play in the background as he inquires about how a certain someone feels about him now that he has made something of himself. We have one question, is this another fan based release or will this be on his upcoming album Views From The 6. Enjoy The New Single Below.

Music| Interview w/ @SeventhSounds of @AGO_Music

Seven

• Those of you who have been reading what we write here at GoodGarbs know that we have become fans of the brands, artist and events we post about. There is one music team that we have built a very close relationship with who go by the name #AGO. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this team of talent seems to continue to prosper and expand their exposure. Each one of the artist apart of AGO have a unique style, sound and following, but one of the artist is basically just a damn comedian. The Seventh is a childhood friend who we have been able to watch grow in many aspects and now is traveling the world delivering his message. The producer/rapper/stylist is one half of the latest CrossRoadTour that took place in Europe in the past months. Fresh from the plane, we were able to catch up with The Seventh to talk about the tour, his latest EP release, fashion and to hear some funny ass stories. Enjoy some updated music, videos, and the interview below. Visit @SeventhSounds

Interview w/ The Seventh

· Top three shoes you had to have packed during your Euro tour?

Ha good questions. I packed a pair of Nike SB’s, a Sperry Boat Shoe, and a recent favorite, the Addidas L.A Trainer. I also packed a pair of Nike Roshe, but i left those shoes in the hotel room in Hamburg :/ lol

· While in Europe what site/places/art pieces were you able to visit and draw inspiration from?

Of course I got to see things like the big ben in London plus roam around soho and check out the soho house.Got to see the Eiffel tower, from a far, but never the less, it didn’t take from the beauty of being able to seeing things like that in person. In Berlin, I got to see some displays featuring fragments of the berlin wall, I felt privileged to be able to once again, see a piece of history with my own eyes. Side note, I also go the chance to stop in and shop at a few record shops! I picked up some cool shit thats hella sample worthy and stuff that i personally like, experimental/psych rock, jazz, and some indie bands were amongst some of the selections.

· Describe Waldo’s energy when he is on stage?

He’s in his element when he’s up there on that stage, it’s the last piece to the whole package. His attitude and delivery on stage packs just as much punch as the Sango beats which often accompany him.

· This being your first EuroTour, what were some of the differences you felt from your fan base in Europe from those from your home fans?

The kids in Europe really know how to rage. Most importantly, they seem to have an appreciation for new music/future music. In comparison to America, I’d say they are more prone to give underground music a chance, where in America, the masses seem to care only when your on mainstream level.

· We noticed Amsterdam was the first stop … *clears throat* so were we #teamGoGreen while there?

Haha We were there for the Encore festival. I smoked as much weed as I could in Amsterdam lol. It was legal, so i took advantage, FULL advantage lol. Aside from baking my brain cells away, we managed to connect with some cool people, and catch a few performances from other artists who were there. There we’re a few other American artists apart of the festival, like Pusha T, Vic Mensa, Kid Ink and Ryan Leslie.

· Number 1 favorite song to perform live?

– Explicit content from Waldo’s project NSDE/OUTSDE, for sure. The kids go wild for that. We had to toss some kids off stage during the performance of that song in Paris lol.

· Favorite EuroTrip meal?

Man food service was the move throughout the tour lol. We ate veggie burgers when we saw opportunity too. We had some bomb ass sushi that got delivered to out hotel, that took the cake for sure!

· Tell us one funny #Crossroads story?

– Most of the funny stories are things that would ole fun at us. Like being lost, unable to communicate sometimes because of language barriers, having to adjust to driving on the other side of the road, chasing down taxis and franticly running through airports trying not to miss flights for next stops.

· Who sleeps less, You or Waldo?

– I sleep less. I’m the rare breed of both a night owl and the early bird…I thinks that what they call a vampire, right? lol

· Can we expect a AGO EuroTour soon?!

– Hell yea, sooner than later, fasho. Sango is still in school. I thinks safe for one to assume that once the stars align and the demand is there, an AGO tour with the whole crew is inevitable.

· What has the response to ‘SKYGOD’ EP been thus far?

It’s been a blessing. I feel horned to be able to drop a body of work like Skygod and reach almost a half a million hits. Im happy because when i was creating this project, I wanted to create something that was more honest as far as starting to share a lot more of circumstances i’ve been excised to in my life. Side A was def something I wanted to be clean and to the point. I think every track is different, so maybe thats why this project is receiving love from across the board.

 · When not performing in Europe what did you find yourself doing?

– A lot of building. We had a few interviews, one being on air w/ at BBC. We went and took a tour of the sound cloud headquarters. We also got the opportunity to record music on the road, which is always something we look forward to being able to do. Some of out friends brought recording equipment to our hotel in Paris, one of the songs we recorded that day was recently released…It’s called “Walking on Water” from Waldo, it’s the latest track that he released.

· What Do You want to do next/ What are you doing next?

– Next for me, I got some visuals on the way. a shit ton of new production and collabs on the way. and best believe Skygod side b is coming soon, fasho. I might even drop a mixtape before then. I have a solid concept for one, just depends on how it evolves if I’m going to release it lol.
