Press Release

Yes, that is THE YOKO ONO on our May Music Issue cover! Don’t worry, we can’t believe it either. The STATUS team has been working hard, and our ART Department did something special. They went crazy illustrating almost every article (not all, but you know what I mean) and we promise you’ll love every single one of them.

Our cover girl Yoko Ono is a living legend, and our former Features Editor Kristine Dabbay had the honor of interviewing her. So, if you love Yoko, we’re sure your freaking out right now. Also, it looks amazing thanks to our new Art Director Soleil Ignacio who illustrated the cover as well as the insides of the feature.

Rico Blanco also joins this issue talking about the great things he’s doing with Sesame Street. We had a fun shoot with him a few months ago—we’ll share that another time, but make sure you read the article by GioDion, and check out Former Art Director Nikkie Po’s art illustration over Creative Media Director Patrick L. Jamora’s photos.

Another one of our heavy hitters is Kimya Dawson. If you loved Juno, then you probably know who she is. She’s that girl who sang “Anyone Else But You.” Yep, now you remember? Let Shinji Manlangit tell you more.

And since this is our Music Issue, we have a great line up of artists and bands inside: Architecture in Helsinki, Dum Dum Girls, Mac Miller, Panda Bear, just to name a few. And, of course, music critics from Pitchfork, Paste, and Pop Matters in our New Kids On The Block section.

We’re very proud of this issue, and that’s why we’re celebrating! Join us in our release party at Fiamma next Friday (May 6, 2011). Hope you guys love the new issue as much as we do, and see you at the party!
