Daily Value

Access Anna

A face usually hidden behind a shroom-like bob and sunglasses almost as large as her intimidation factor will be coming to a big screen near you. For the first time in the history of Anna Wintour’s career she will be letting us regulars into the inner workings of Vogue. Film-maker R.J Cutlers is the man behind the reality TV-style version of The Devil Wears Prada (so much can be said here about art imitating life imitating art imitating…. and so on):

” He takes us behind the scenes at Fashion Week, to Europe, on shoots and re-shoots, and into closed-door staff meetings, bearing witness to an arduous, entertaining, and sometimes emotionally demanding process.”

We don’t know about you, but we’re already planning how much non-fat popcorn to smuggle in.

This Crystal Castles remix of White Lies‘ newest ‘Death‘ proves to be just a wee bit trippier than say… Tim Burton’s latest pet project?

Primitive techno? Analogue pop? Call them what you like, but we at Daily Value can’t stop listening to Battant.  Signed to super label Kill The DJ, the trio produce music for those seeking a little romance and nostalgia.  Battant have already caused quite the stir in Paris with a dedicated cult following. We have certainly become believers, and come their album release this June you will too.

Sarah Clifford-Rashotte. Making Girls Cry.

“Following the success of I Do MoreChange Me Forever marks C-R’s second solo show of drawings with LE Gallery, since graduating from London’s Central Saint Martins. C-R’s new work reflects her fixation with constructed appearances and a reality that can only exist within the space of her drawings. Ongoing, practically constant. Join LE Gallery for the opening and exhibition of Change Me Forever, new works on paper from Sarah Clifford-Rashotte.  A Graduate from the prestigious Central Saint Martins MFA program in England, Clifford-Rashotte’s ability to filter the experience of her generation in highly confessional and reflexive drawings on paper situates her practice within a movement of young, aggressive and culturally astute image makers. Exploring the accelerated culture in which she and other young artists must adjust to, reveals a fluid identity which simultaneously adapts to the shift in art, fashion, and music.” – Courtesy of Le Gallery

ps. You can slash definitely should go check out Sarah’s solo show at Le Gallery May 8th, starting at 7pm (runs to May 31st). I’m in love, I know you will be too. Also check out Sarah’s blog.



As you’ve probably noticed, we here at Daily Value appreciate the sound of music (sans the von Trapps in this case). Our appreciation becomes sheer pleasure when a new band emerges that delivers what they promise- an experience. Based out of Philly, MACH22 pays tribute to the likes of AC/DC, Zepplin and Hendrix while introducing their own unique flair which has landed them in some of the Big Apple’s shiniest venues.

The boys of Mach22 will be introducing themselves Ontario on May 9th as part of this year’s Rogers Spring Music Festival.

Show up, and be sure to show Mach Love.
