Few examples better illustrate the well-known inferiority complex of the Scottish than the 1996 indie masterpiece Trainspotting. “It’s shiet being Scottish! We’re the lowest of the low. The scum of the fucking Earth!” Mark Renton deftly exclaims with a sentiment that can only be calmed by massive amounts of heroin. Evolving as it did to […]

Music Changing with the Tides

Many may think that Seattle’s music scene ended with a shotgun blast when, in a spare room above a garage in a large house facing Lake Washington, Kurt Cobain killed himself. The lead singer of Nirvana left a suicide note for his wife, Courtney Love, and their baby daughter, Frances Bean. On April 8, 1994, […]

Cam Archer loves images. A look at his work reveals a deep connection between that burning iris image of both photographers and filmmakers.

The DJ with the given name of Nick Bertke, but just known as Pogo, has for the past four years done something that other DJ’s haven’t—he has been mixing and scratching with not just music, but also with images. As Lewis Carroll […]

Imperial No. Nine
Imperial No. Nine

Imperial No. Nine, located at the Mondrian SoHo Hotel, is definitely not a place one can easily pass by without becoming immediately curious. Intrigued and guided by my senses, I stepped into Executive Chef Sam Talbot’s restaurant; the recent Top Chef reality-TV celebrity has made a leap from Montauk to SoHo. The restaurant accommodates 150 […]

1. What’s your connection to the music world/industry? 2. What album or artist are you playing on repeat these days? 3. What was the first concert you ever went to, and if you remember-where was it? 4. What was the last show you saw that you really liked? Who was it and where was it? […]

If you’re looking for a hip, smoky dive with $1 bags of peanuts and a full bar, the Hemlock fits the bill. This small club fosters a feeling of intimacy; you’ll be talking to strangers in no time, even if just to navigate your way from the doorway to the bar. There’s wood paneling, dim […]

Cosmessentials
Cosmessentials

Even though I grew up in a household full of females and only two males (our poor Daddy dearest and our beloved beagle), I had to learn to do the girly stuff in life on my own. During my childhood and adolescence, I was raised to believe that traditionally feminine conventions like makeup, fashion and […]

Effie’s Heart
Effie's Heart

Vibrant, vintage spirit in modern day threads? Sure, it’s tough to imagine bygone silhouettes for women today without a few unpleasant thoughts in tow: itchy, ill-fitting fabrics, muted color palettes, overbearing kitsch—ultimately, it’s just not the right look. But vintage enthusiasts hankering for a more current edge have found solace with indie fashion label Effie’s […]

Loomlab
Loomlab

Design, like music, is defined, in part, by an inevitable implementation of technological processes and tools. Loomlab, a collection of scarves by designer Jane Henry, combines the technology of contemporary design with the traditional techniques of fine knitwear. The company’s “Ocean Transport” collection for Fall/Winter 2011 draws inspiration from Fibonacci codes, fractal patterns, mood tides, […]

Archive 1887

Archive 1887 and its vintage-inspired music T-shirts are the embodiment of the belief that you are, essentially, what you wear. Or rather, you listen to what you wear. An LA-based company that launched in 2010, Archive 1887 has reinvented the tired band T-shirt. Consulting the Sony Music archives, each T-shirt features musical icons from Miles […]

Reveille
Reveille

Two weeks ago, I was arm’s length away from cheap souvenirs, America’s obesity with Coronas in tow, and dissatisfied tourists at Coney Island. In addition to the original Nathan’s fresh fries and post-Human Slingshot high, I found refuge in listening to a blue grass meets folk meets awesome group of musicians playing on the boardwalk. […]

Gavin Friday
Gavin Friday

A tangible connection to the original punks is slowly being erased. In just the last year, Ari Up of The Slits and Poly Styrene of X-Ray Spex shed their mortal coils, Joe Strummer’s death in 2002 was especially poignant and even the seemingly endless supply of Ramones is dwindling. Gavin Friday is one of the […]
