Dean 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 magnetmagazine.com all this week. Read our Q&A with Dean & Britta.
Dean: Geoff Dyer‘s book Yoga For People Who Can’t Be Bothered To Do It is not about yoga. It is a collection of personal essays, almost travel writing: funny dispatches from Amsterdam, Tripoli, Cambodia, New Orleans, Detroit and other places. Listen to an interview with Dyer here.
