Zebra Katz - Ima Read

Latest song obsession.

Also love the DJ Sliink remix.

Goes to show how less attractive collections can be transformed by good music, lighting, and atmosphere. I didn't care much for Rick Owens' FW12 collection just by looking at the photos but like it a bit better now, after having watched the show. It makes more sense when you see the looks paired with the fire and music

"'I'm gonna read that bitch' is a gay vogueing-culture term for 'tell her what's what.' It's ridiculously exaggerated in this song and expressed mostly though the female voice. I liked how it expressed savage impulses in a chilly, controlled way. And I was speaking to the savage impulses we all recognize in ourselves and suppress in elaborate and formal ways." -Rick Owens (via Vogue)

Frankly Zebra's other work doesn't hold a candle to Ima Read, but is worth checking out anyway. If you need a little pick-me-up, listen to his joke track, Hipster :)
