Post image for have a good weekend, folks!

spent the last couple of hours listening to lcd soundsystem sound-checking next door.  torture, but also pretty cool. tried to sneak onto the tourbus or into the building as they were setting up… and failed.  oh well, happy friday!

AH where can i get those little black booties on the right!?!?

I wish my Friday's looked like that! I have a question about look 4 from the lookbook on the FP website-- I know the jacket/vest is from the Muubaa Convertible Leather Trench Coat, but where can a girl on a budget find something like that?? Would free people make that piece as a separate?! The whole jacket is fabulous and with so many wearable options, well worth the price, just not in my price range...Thank you!!

in honor of tonight’s show, here’s a little playlist of some LCD for your friday.  the song “home” off the new album is one of my favorites right now.

jenny lewis and her boyfriend johnathan rice have teamed up to record an album, “i’m having fun now”, and it sounds like just that – fun. warm, sunny pop rock is the best way to describe their sound – you may recognize jenny’s voice from rilo kiley, which she fronted.  they’re also just a really cute couple. i remember reading an article in rolling stone a while back about the resurgence of laurel canyon, where some of the greatest music of the 60s was written.  the article talked about how jenny lewis and johnathan rice would hold regular jam sessions at their laurel canyon home, in a style very reminiscent of the 60s –  i thought that was pretty cool. you can definitely sense a little bit of that alternative spirit in some of their songs.

have you guys heard of birdie busch? she’s a philly native whose atmospheric folk music and whimsical voice are starting to gain wider recognition.  her myspace page describes her music as “weird and winding: she sings about magic, luck, the universe, the human heart speeding off on dangerous missions like Inspector Gadget. An intimate partnership with long time band mates has assured that her records are cohesive and remarkably mature, a dreamy Americana too warm to be made in this decade but too grounded and aware to be made anytime else.”

she has just released an EP of four songs inspired by her hometown (philadelphia) called “everyone will take you in” and our music coordinator gave me a copy last week. i was immediately intrigued by the packaging alone, it’s really lovely. it includes vinyl and cd versions of the EP as well as a stack of vintage looking postcards with song lyrics on the back and a letter from birdie explaining the meaning of this project. i wanted to share some photos just because i thought it was so nice!

they’re vagabonds… rock ‘n’ rollers who travel from town to town with their belongings strung across their backs, guitar cases in hand.  the autumn gypsy is a mix of the bohemian hippie with a rocker edge. she spends her days beading jewelry and making necklaces with good luck charms that she gives out to friends and people she meets in her travels.  she reads palms and loses herself in deep thought when the weather shifts a certain way –  as days grow shorter and trees cast long shadows across her path her spirit comes alive, a mischeivious sparkle in her eyes. her friends have gatherings in the woods around bonfires that flicker across the crackling paint of old caravans. they tell stories and play songs into the night, reading poetry by candlelight and looking for patterns in the stars up above.

here’s a playlist of music this trend brought to mind.

anyone going to bumbershoot this weekend? it is the 40th anniversary of the seattle music and arts festival, and they’ve gathered a really interesting lineup- different from most of the festival lineups i’ve seen this season. here’s a look at some of the acts who will be performing, and a playlist of their music!

An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I believe that you must write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic but typically individuals are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers

burning man starts today, anyone going? i have never been to burning man but its one of those things that i’ve always been really interested in doing.  it just looks so primeval and spirited… and maybe a little eerie in these photos by samantha casolari. beautiful though… i think it would be quite an experience. if any of you have been or plan on going, i would love to hear about it!

these photos can also be seen in samantha’s first book which is out now :)

Post image for off the record

what’s everyone up to this weekend? i am seeing one of my favorite bands, my morning jacket, at penn’s landing on sunday and i can’t wait!!! i have loved them for years and seeing them at this venue (which is pretty small) should be amazing. i haven’t seen them since bonnaroo ’08, when they released their last album evil urges,  so i’m curious to see what songs they play.

i’m trying to get there early to get good seats so i can take pics!

if i wasn’t doing that, i would probably take a day trip to bethel, new york, for their harvest festival. our vintage buyer told me about it – it takes place on sunday at the site of the original woodstock festival and there’s a farmers market,crafts, live music and more. sounds like so much fun!

more info here.

happy friday!

another fp girl recommended here we go magic to me – i had heard of them before but never actually listened to their music. i’m so happy to have discovered them – i listened to their latest album, pigeons, on repeat for an entire day after i discovered it. it’s really mellow and kinda psychedelic… great for a day like today.

check out a couple of their songs:
