Picture - Polish architectural and deep-sea engineering... Kuredhivaru Maldives, Saturday 15th June 2013

Polish architectural and deep-sea engineering company Deep Ocean Technology has inked a deal with Ridgewood Hotels and Suites PVT. Ltd. to build its futuristic part-underwater Water Discus Hotel just off the shore of Kuredhivaru Island in the Maldives. 'The luminous hotel features two large disc-shaped lounges seven-meters above the water, housing a luxury restaurant and spa. The lounges are connected to a glass tunnel plunging 30-meters below the water, leading to 21 opulent bedrooms. Not only does the hotel look like a spaceship -- it actually moves like one, with the largest underwater saucer-shaped room able to slide to the surface in emergencies. 'If you need to replace a window for example, it's very difficult underwater,' explained one of the designers. 'So we wanted to build a building that can surface any time for maintenance or safety. - Kuredhivaru , Maldives - Saturday 15th June 2013

A Week In Music - Classic Blues From Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, Raunchy Videos From The Weeknd, Jay Z And Justin Timberlake, Get Up Close And Personal With Rihanna In 'Stay'

Albums Of Note... Get Up! pairs modern blues idol and expert slide guitarist Ben Harper with harmonica legend Charlie Musselwhite. Aiming for blues authenticity, that’s exactly what Ben and Charlie achieve here. The pair of talented blues musicians fly in the face of modernity and instead strive to recreate the dusky glamour of a Chicago blues club.

In general, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite have delivered a strong, yet candid and fun blues album. This album really does not care that it is 2013, and why should it? Each of the ten songs contains something of merit. Both musicians involved are fairly prolific but this collection will doubtlessly shoot to the high end of the fans favourites in no time at all.”

PVT - Homosapien Album Review


When a band initially starts out as an improvisational-based experiment, its inevitable that one day they'll discover then settle on a certain formula for the foreseeable future. Having started out on their voyage of discovery nearly fifteen years ago, brothers Richard and Laurence Pike have spent the ensuing period steadily crafting PVT's sound towards the polished electronica rushing through the heart of 'Homosapien''s core. What that means is a long player which can best be described as a mixed bag. 

PVT - Homosapien Album Review

Although PVT have come a long way since the krautrock inspired sound of 2005's debut 'Make Me Love You', or the harsher caustic avant garde of follow-up 'O Soundtrack My Heart'; the latter fully deserving of its place on the legendary Warp Records imprint; its almost as if they've morphed into a different band entirely. Whereas their previous releases drew comparisons with the noise-infused likes of HEALTH or Holy Fuck, 2010's cleaner sounding 'Church With No Name' veered towards the pop-friendly territories occupied by the likes of Cut Copy and The Presets.

It shouldn't come as too much of a surprise then that they've chosen to plough a similar furrow with 'Homosapien', their fourth and arguably commercially poised collection of songs to date. Not that we'd expect to see PVT battling for chart domination alongside the likes of GaGa and Bieber any time soon either. Although it would be fair to say had this album been released thirty years earlier it may have found solace amidst the Duran Durans and OMDs of this world.
