  • GLIDE MAGAZINE PREMIERES NEW SONG FROM PEZZETTINO

    Glide Magazine premiered the new track from Racine, WI-raised and Oakland, CA-based singer-songwriter Pezzettino called “How To.”

    Glide calls the song “a delicate folk-rooted composition that combines the humility of Big Thief and the musical curiosity of Regina Spektor. Pezzettino has created a song of enduring aspiration, where daily struggle and hope combine for a musical buildup that is indie folk at its most haunting.”

    The song comes from Pezzettino’s upcoming album, Resin which is out on February 8th.

  • THE BIG TAKEOVER PREMIERE NEW SONG FROM MATT SHAPIRO

    The Big Takeover premiered the new track from Montreal-raised and NYC-based singer-songwriter Matt Shapiro called “Rockaway Girl.”

    The Big Takeover says of the track “It’s an up-tempo strummer and hummer that dashes off the starting line of the track and quickly introduces the distorted synth-organs that are one of the record’s sonic hallmarks. It’s an exuberant, lo-fi affair with organs grinding alongside pulsing bass and drums and Shapiro’s reverb-drenched vocals floating overtop.”

  • One of the most frustrating aspects of designing a website is the fact that there are still only few standard fonts that are “safe” to use. This means even though you might have a large collection of spectacular fonts, there are limitations on how you can use them because most visitors to your site won’t have them installed on their computers — their browsers will then replace the missing font locally with what it deems a similar font, which may not be that similar at all. This can make your impeccable design become something much less than that.

    Moreover, it limits your choices and would seem to nullify really valuable CSS hover effects that are great alternatives to using images with javascript rollover functions that have to preload as your page is accessed. Thankfully, with some creative use of images and CSS, you can still have the font and the rollover effect, with not very much effort. This site uses the technique described below – mouse over the words ‘music’, ‘film’, ‘gadgets’, etc. and you’ll see them in action.

    The trick is to choose our font and design a “doubled” rollover image:

    Then, you use CSS to frame the image’s viewable area inside a <div>:

    .music {
     float:left;
     width: 56px;
     margin: 0 20px 0 0;
     overflow: hidden;
    }

     

     

    And when you add the following CSS hover style…

    .music a:hover {
    margin-left: -57px;
    }

    You get the rollover effect:

    Basically, what this does is shift the image to the left by 57 pixels, which allows the overflowed part of the image to move into view. So there you have it – quick easy, non-javascript rollovers!
