Three New Releases From The Fanfare Corporation
Fresh from England’s dampest city and Bound Art Book Fair, we present three new releases to whet your appetite as the days grow shorter. All available through at fanfare.world/shop
Housewives Happy Hour by Shannon Kurlander
Housewives Happy Hour includes music compiled by Shannon Kurlander and artwork by Kashton Kane. Housewives Happy Hour channels the white picket fence and fresh apple pie. Stepford wives and Wisteria Lane. Meticulous suburban and mundanely suburban. A martini mix of 50s doo wop, pop, jazz and soul channels desperation to destruction.
“Life’s a dungeon so throw your sponge in”
Shannon Kurlander is a Mid-Atlantic polymath stationed in South London\
Soul Secretion by Pont Smith
Soul Secretion is a ceremony of nihility, conjured through the disembodied spirit of the cursed. A desolate voyage that exhumes life’s visceral lethargy, devouring embers of introspection. This projection of mortality concludes through a descention into the abyss, where death is the only victor.
Pont Smith is a multifaceted hologram, dredged from the bowels of Kent and now enduring London. With an interest in the occult, Pont uses their curiosity of the supernatural to communicate the fragility of reality through many diverse mediums.
Seasons in SouthEast by LKN
Seasons in SouthEast is a tribute to the time spent in SE London and the memories that came from the incredible connections made.
