This hat from 40 Oz. is on point!!! I love the movie “Kids” which came out in the 90’s, directed by Larry Clark, and is a poignant, raw portrayal of intercity New York teenagers. The oh-so-lovable Casper wears a similar joint through the movie and I fell in love with it when I saw it. I have spent hours trying to find a matching version online, so you can imagine this is a must cop for me that almost made me drop my computer when I saw it. They can be bought at http://40ozny.com/ for $40.00
Sorry for the gaps in my posts, work and midterms overwhelmed me for a few weeks. Back for Spring though!
The Underachievers dropped a new music video today for the track “The Mahdi” This is fire! Get ready for the drop of their first mixtape, Indigoism dropping February 1st. Music video after the jump.
I was invited recently to an upcoming event at Paradise Rock Club in Boston, HEAVY AND LIGHT: An Evening of Songs, Conversation & Hope, which among many other talented acts, features a few readings from my favorite spoken word poet Anis Mojgani. I’ve had the opportunity to see him perform in Exeter, New Hampshire, and his delivery really blew me away. In an interview with The Spokesman Review back in 2007 he said, “What I feel separates spoken word from other forms is that there is little to no buffer between the artist, the art, and the audience. The artist has the opportunity to fully expose what they are and make themselves incredibly vulnerable, and directly to the people around them without any buffer of film or canvass or fiction or guitar; there’s only the free expression of what’s inside a person’s heart and opening that to a body of people.” Anis has the power to really connect with the audience in a direct way, weaving words and phrases in ways manage to be both intricate and approachable. His performances really are some of the best in spoken word, so if you’re in the area be sure to check it out, and let me know you’re going! Tickets are $19.00 and will include performances by Jon Foreman & Fiction Family, Anthony Raneri (of Bayside), Will Anderson (of Parachute), Now, Now, The Lone Bellow. View some of my favorite poems of his after the jump.
The Windmill Club, a new label entering the shirting market, dropped their new lookbook today and DAMN I’m impressed. Titled “She said, ‘Don’t make others suffer for your personal hatred.'” it’s shot on stunning 35 mm film in Los Angeles. I’m really into their first looks as they manage to blend classic and contemporary styles seamlessly in a minimal style that still makes a lot of noise in a crowded room. The direction they’re taking is a strong one, and I’m into the description offered by founder Kevin Burrows; “Tanned. Broken P3s. Oxford cloth. Anglo. Burnt out. Fucked up Monograms. Sun bleached gods. Colophons. Unit 00. Battered luggage. Ocelot. Nomads. Field team. The coast. Rugged twill. Acid Americana. Peyote prep. Shamanistic Sportswear.”
Their first oxford, available in white and blue, is for sale on their site for $175.00 with free domestic shipping. More lookbook images after the jump.
The New York Times released a short and sweet profile of A$AP Yams, the “boss” of the A$AP crew. While not a musician himself, his producing talent has earned him quite the reputation in the rap industry, and I expect him to remain a staple for years to come.
