From The Desk Of Dean & Britta: Pittsburgh Signs Project

deanbritta120f1Dean Wareham and Britta Phillips are New York City’s most effortless mod couple, a duo whose sleek, icily romantic pop can serve as both sophisticated art-gallery soundtrack and lovey-dovey fireplace music. In the four years since the breakup of former band Luna, Wareham and Phillips have pursued boutique careers in the best possible sense: in literature, film, fashion and the music business. Fittingly, their latest project, 13 Most Beautiful … Songs For Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, sets a series of Warhol’s short films to music. The couple will be guest editing all this week. Read our Q&A with Dean & Britta.


Dean: Jennifer Baron, Greg Langel, Mark Stroup and Elizabeth Perry just released Pittsburgh Signs Project: 250 Signs Of Western Pennsylvania, a beautiful and humorous picture book of the American landscape. It features photographs of signs in Western Pennsylvania in varying states of disrepair.

Western PA is an amazing area to explore as evidenced by the content of this book. It is rare to find a city like Pittsburgh that has the lingering indicators of its past alongside a renewed cultural future. What I mean to say is – try to find these signs around the area and you are sure to have a wonderful time and stumble upon small stores, interesting antiques, and very odd but interesting people.
