Got ten minutes to spare? Treat yourself to this spirited portrait of Johannesburg-based “afro-rock” band, BLK JKS (pronounced ‘black jacks’). Presently residing in New York, they’re one tight-knit group of artists adding their own inviting style to the kaleidoscopic aesthetic of the city. These guys put on a virtual eyewear clinic, for one. And, their approach to life is quite like The Beggar’s: It is, as one of the bandmates explains, a “do what you can with what you have where you are kind of thing.” [BLK JKS via Huffington Post]
