Awhile back we posted on an album that was blowing our minds, The Waiting Room by Lusine. Months later, it’s still on heavy rotation. We talked to the mastermind behind the moniker, Jeff McIlwain and his wife/vocalist Sarah McIlwain to learn more about this album and hear about their tour. He was even kind enough to send us some shots from the road.

Sophisticated, edgy, and badass. That’s what I think of Acne’s latest delivery of Winter gear. It’s hard to imagine rocking a lot of these styles in LA this time of year, but our friends in temp-dropping climates will definitely appreciate these looks. Sweden’s favorite clothing brand stays ahead of the game when it comes to contemporary cuts and materials. For the most part, the vibrant prints are kept as detailing, and navy’s and blacks found on the larger read more >

Veronica Losantos - Light Diaries_darkroom_witnessthis-2

Veronica Losantos tells us stories through her imagery. Based out of Berlin and originally from Spain, her images tell of her travels as well as her daily life. The colors are something special, and paired with her attention to detail, we are left with a nostalgic feeling previously reserved for old foreign films.

This mix was inspired by the 2013 Burning Man Festival. An amazing year that I will remember for years to come. My good buddy Dersu and I were lucky enough to play atop of Skybar, a 2 story high dessert night club. A truly unforgettable experience that was a highlight of this years playa jaunt. The tracks found on this mixtape made the Skybar rock and kept Salty Jack’s and read more >
