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:

they’re touring with dr. dog this fall so if they’re coming to your area check them out – i know i will! check out more songs and tour dates here.

i recently discovered beck’s record club and i think the whole premise behind it is pretty awesome. the record club is an informal meeting of musicians who come together to record an album in a day.  they have done albums by the velvet underground, leonard cohen, inxs and even yanni.  the results are pretty great- and they post a video of them recording the tracks once a week.  they are rough renditions, often first takes, which i think makes it even cooler.

here’s one of my favorites, from the songs of leonard cohen, with a group that includes Devendra Banhart, Ben, Andrew and Will from MGMT, Andrew from Wolfmother, Binki Shapiro from Little Joy and Beck.

Record Club: Songs Of Leonard Cohen “So Long, Marianne” from Beck Hansen on Vimeo.

interesting note- this album was picked by andrew of MGMT, and their second choice was ace of base. can you imagine how that would sound?

Post image for Falls Hot New Looks

From maxi length and shaggy coats,  mesh and boudoir details as outterwear, and fashion’s new sporty mood, these are Free Peoples trends to get to know this Fall. What are they? How to wear them? here’s where to find out…

We want to inspire you before Falls sneaks up upon us

Here’s details from the people behind the scenes:

Why we love it

“We’re all excited about the maxi length and believe it’s gonna be HUGE for A/W 10,  whether its dresses, skirts or trousers, It’s our bohemian girl and a very traditional free people trend that we are excited about”

How we’ll be wearing it

“We love it updated into fall with shaggy fur coats and platforms or clogs.  It totally reminded us of Penny Lane from the movie Almost Famous. We wanted to update our Boho roots with a bit of rock and roll and so we love this trend to mix in cool graphic tees, beaten up leather and worn in jeans.  Like shes been hanging out on a tour bus all summer with the band and is coming home with an eclectic trunk full of clothes she picked up on the way. Jewelry is really strong in here, especially rings on every finger and long pendant necklaces have a 70’s hippy vibe about them that’s always cool”

Stay tuned for two more trends we’re loving right now!

Great post, saved the blog for hopes to read more information!

I've been enjoying all the Sark posts lately. I was REALLY into her journals in the 90's. Lo and behold, while cleaning my office out yesterday, I found my old Sark journal and had a blast reading my entries. It is soooo amazing to read things and experience your own creativity after so much time has elapsed. At times, I thought...really? Did I come up with that? It was really fun! Keep up the great posts.

in the time i spend searching the web, i find a lot of really amazing artwork… but every once in a while i stumble upon an artist who really blows me away.  this is one of them.  i am completely in love with eibatova karina‘s work… not only are the images beautiful and  exquisitely detailed, but the messages behind her work make it even more meaningful to me. plus i’m a sucker for pretty much anything that has to do with john lennon…
