Huntington Beach Surf Comments | Aug 24 2008

A few days before I arrived in California the west coast had something like a 9 foot tide or something of the sort and is when this interview took place. More or less this is why surfing is unbelievably legit… its probably the only sport where an interview like this could even be broadcasted and make sense. Get pitteeeedd so pitteeeedd!!!

Bloc Party

On Monday Aug. 18 ‘08 Bloc Party announced that this Thursday, the 21 their new album Intimacy was going to be released online and in stores this winter. The interview with Gordon Moakes with Pitchfork talks about what prompted the early and quick release considering that the album was mastered only about a week ago. With the intent of the record to be released winter 08/09 having the album drop today is a perfect example of the groups dedication to the album.

Canada and France are winning 

There have been a lot of collabs appearing recently between Canadian musicians and Parisians. If it had to be summed up what the outcome of these collaborations are it would be winning music. Two examples of French and Canadian musical talent meshing is Chrome Knight which is Surkin’s White Knight with a new vocal track done by Dave 1 of Chromeo and DatA’s Rapture ft. Sebastian Grainger of the once DFA 1979 and Sebastian Grainger & the Mountains.

Surkin ft. Chromeo - Chrome Knight

DatA - Rapture ft. Sebastian Grainger

Do you know of any other revolutionary Canada / French collaborations that I have not mentioned ? If so let me know.

Where are Black Holes Comments | Aug 17 2008

The Black Holes

I just heard about Black Holes are from Chicago Illinois and have a heavy ghetto tech sound fused with b-more and winding synths is similar to that of Crookers, DJ Barletta and the likes but twist and alter the ghetto tech beats to a unique hum. There legitness is also raised due to the large quantity of PBR in this photo.

Rmxing Caked Up by Hollywood Holt is also super super tight.

Comme des Garçons for H&M Comments | Aug 16 2008

Comme Des Carcons Store

I finally got a hold of some of the looks Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons is doing for H&M. They are classically a “Comme des Garçons” look however it seems less technical than her Comme des Garçons or Comme des Garçons Homme lines. I got a chance to attend the CDG Gorilla store in Downtown LA and it was nothing less than amazing, the interior design was very modern, mechanical post modern-ish. The walls were while ceramic tiles with brushed stainless steel clothings racks with vintage instruments and shelvings. There also seemed to be shopping cart installations raising 20 ft in height in the middle of the store. Also be noted Dover Court Market is also associated with CDG.

Anyways here’s some looks of CDG with H&M.
