How will artists release their new albums? Since the arrival of digital music, we found many ways to exchange and stock our music. Alice Wang thought about what the consumers may need, and her audio sticks could be the packing and presentation of what we will buy in a few years. Each stick has the capacity of 70mb, the equivalent of 15 tracks. The audio system’s front panel acts as a stick rack while the top bit is an audio stick plug and play device. The tracks and the volume can be controlled by a slider located on the side.
The Tuba by Mathmos creates the illusion of not really knowing whether the central space has depth or not. What looks like a solid illuminated disc in the centre is actually an open space, a void that is brightly illuminated. Mathmos Tuba actually senses your hand entering this void and changes the color or the current function. Alternatively, the Mathmos Tuba can be set to react to music, cycling through a color changing sequence along with the “beat” or your favorite music.

Mark Denardo is an awesome musician who incorporates electronic sequences from both his Gameboy and PSP into soulful original folk songs. I’m pretty convinced rock’n'roll bands like ‘The Strokes’ are influenced by these wonderful lo-fi artists who blend regular instruments with electronic sounds.
We’re big fans of The Strokes at Cubeme so we were very excited to get our hands on The Strokes’ third album, First Impressions of Earth. All I can say is that it lives up to expectations. This album shows maturity, diversity, and you can actually hear Julian Casablancas’ voice. I was impressed by the deepness of “Ize Of The World” and the infectious pop anthem “You Only Live Once”. It’s probably one of the rock best albums of 2006.
