Madison, WI-based Court & Seventh make delicate, ethereal songs where the percussion and organ are out in front and the guitar and vocals (the typical stars of rock stardom) are subtle, sonorous things. As with some of my favorite bands, the whole here is greater than the sum of the parts.
Todd Hido's photographs are nearly always haunting, none more so than his series of homes photographed at night. Soft, lonely, and quietly composed, Hido's images are stunning in their simplicity. We paired Court & Seventh with this particular image because, well, Madison, WI is one cold city.
