Max Normal: Good Old Fashion Loving

For London Design Festival 2014, designers like Tom Dixon and Industrial Facility made playlists for #SuperStimuli

Design studio Industrial Facility, who works closely with brands like Muji and Herman Miller, prefer old school simplicity and anonymity to designer stardom. For their mixtape, founders Sam Hecht and Kim Colin selected a disc’s worth of songs from Detroit “anti-rock” band Destroy All Monsters (which included contemporary artist Mike Kelley as a member, who Colin later worked with for his piece “Educational Complex”). DAM only officially put out a one-hour cassette of their recordings, but Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore later released a box-set of their early music in 1994. “Child of the Night,” a lo-fi, stripped down spoken word lullaby is a good track to ease into the journey.
