Spring has finally (!) sprung in New York City so we put together a mixtape to help get you in the mood. Our springtime mix of 60’s French Yé-yé and 21st century dreampop is for hazy afternoons spent curled under the cherry blossom trees, for sharing baskets of brie and wine with friends in the park, and for relishing in the gentleness of the mid-April air.
Last week, we caught Albert Hammond Jr play a series of shows along the east coast in support of his new album ‘Francis Trouble’. Our favorite took place in an intimate Pennsylvanian church basement — and we had the pleasure of capturing it on film.
Just a few days after the spring equinox, MGMT returned home to Brooklyn to play three sold-out shows in support of their latest studio album ‘Little Dark Age’. We were there all three nights to shoot the show on film and hear the new record in action.
This week we’re listening to ‘Francis Trouble,’ the dynamic and oftentimes devastating new album from Albert Hammond Jr. ‘Francis Trouble’ navigates the difficult journey to the crux of one man’s psyche – and reveals harrowing truths about our own vulnerabilities in the process.
NYC, come dance! MODERN GIRLS is putting on another show with our friends from Flatbox. Come see Nation of Language, Jackie Mendoza, Water From Your Eyes, and Anna Altman – one night only, 4/18 at Trans-Pecos.
A playlist for all 365 days of International Women’s Day, featuring Empress Of, X-Ray Spex, Destiny’s Child, Kate Bush, and over sixty (!) more trailblazing women. Happy IWD from our sisterhood to yours.
In the wake of the Parkland shooting, we have compiled several comprehensive statistics about the gun epidemic in America and a toolkit of resources for demanding gun reform from legislators.
Kero Kero Bonito’s latest effort TOTEP, self-released this past Tuesday, introduces a fresh and unexpectedly dark new sound for the British electro-pop trio. This week we have it on repeat.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, we have a dreamy little mix of songs made for crushin’. Crush on a lover, crush on a friend, crush on a stranger, or crush on yourself to the timeless romance of Serge Gainsbourg, Karen O, Nina Simone, and Françoise Hardy. Nous t’aimons.
Sticky-sweet but never cloying, Pearl and the Oysters’ eponymous debut album is equal parts fantastical space opera and cult 60’s beach movie. We were honored to have the chance to chat with the band about their debut album and what comes next.
