With an exhibit on the way!

Filmmaker Wes Anderson is known for the elaborate sets and the aesthetically pleasing color palettes that illuminate each of his projects—so it’s only fitting that he should try his hand at museum curation next.

This fall, Anderson will co-curate an exhibit in Vienna, Austria, with his partner, designer Juman Malouf. The Kunsthistorisches Museum has given Anderson and Malouf free reign of their entire archive to create an exhibit. The pair will have unlimited access to art from all over the world, from throughout history. They will be able to feature these works in whatever way they see fit—meaning an Egyptian mummy could be placed right next to an assortment of crown jewels and Old Master paintings, if the duo so chooses.

There’s no telling what the exhibit will entail, as the museum has yet to release any specifics (they promise it will be "unlike anything we've ever done before" though), but we hope it will stay true to Anderson’s quirky style. The one thing we do know is the name of the exhibit: “The Spitzmaus Mummy in a Coffin and Other Treasures from the Kunsthistorisches Museum.” Sounds about right for a Wes Anderson project.

The exhibit will open on November 6 and go on until April 28, 2019. In the meantime, see the teaser trailer for the exhibit, below. 


Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO] www.youtube.com

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video) www.youtube.com

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House www.youtube.com

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.

"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
