In the current climate of uprise and revolution all across the world and especially in the middle east the youth is called up to action and active participation for the good or the bad. Meanwhile in America the youth remains idle. There is no revolution in action and in spirit, there is just a kind of “big hair don’t care” blasé attitude and a distracting pre-occupation with pop culture. In anticipation of our upcoming REVOLT issue Australian photographer, filmmaker and artist Peter Goldman, based in NYC, teamed up with Lisa Lee to set exactly this mood into action.
Whitelies #002 REVOLT – issue coming in August.
TEMPLES is a British neo-psychedelic band that makes trippy retro pop – combining the experimental sound of bands like the Move and mid-period Byrds with the classic song craftsmanship of the Beatles. We sat down with the two masterminds behind the project to talk about psychedelic clichés, their recording process and recording in a home studio.
