Ethosens is a menswear label from Tokyo Japan and has a very classic slim fit while integrating some pretty progressive textiles and patterns. Fall/Winter 08/09 images are included in the post. Ethosens is designed by Yui Hashimoto who graduated from Esmod japon in 2000. The F/W 07/08 was his first season his line was available and S/S 08 was his first showing in Paris where his line was greeted with open arms. For the rest of the line check the Ethosens site.
Fashion designer Henrik Vibskov graduated from Central St Martins in 2001 and shows at Paris Fashion Week, where he is currently the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule. Vibskov creates conceptual collections, which are sold in selected boutiques around the globe including his own The-V-Store in Copenhagen.
Is Henrik Vibskov’s jumper a legitimate Halloween costume or is it to cozy, fun, warm and not scary?
Empire Of The Sun are one of those bands from Australia that are proving there are no “bad” music coming from the land down under. Empire Of The Sun consist of Nick Littlemore of Pnau and Luke Steele of The Sleepy Jackson. Who knows I could be hatted for this reference but Empire Of The Sun kind of reminds me of a Australian MGMT in a with their easy listening pop psychedelia. Many people have been claiming that the remix of Walking On A Dream by Sam La More (Sam Littlemore the brother of Nick Littlemore) is the best rmx of the song. While it is good, my vote goes with VanShe Tech remix.Empire Of The Suns debut album is currently available on iTunes - watch the video and when you see the album link click it and it will talk you to the iTunes store.
The new song by The Killers does not suck, it is just as authentic and majestic a band can get. Noting The Killers are getting weirder and more obscure their music keeps raising the bar for the fusion between Indie Rock and Alternative music. Human starts off with similarities to U2 and blends into a more familiar sound of When You Were Young but making sure that they are not just banking of the sound and success of their previous hit. I found Human also shares similarities with the Toronto group Put The Rifle Down. Aside from the roaming majestic animals I am in awe of Brandon Flowers feather vest… like what? A-mazing. The Killers new album Day & Age is being released November 25, 2008.
I’ve been playing around with new music video and Overlay.TV’s interactive features for online video. That’s how I addeed all the dynamic content, text and links into the videos. Help the artists out and link to where you can buy their albums/mp3’s online. Overlay.TV allows you to link through the videos you post to itunes/beatport/amazon etc. YE!
Here’s a short video of the new show Banksy has on in NYC called Village Pet Store And Charcoal Grill. Its located at 89 7th Avenue between West 4th and Bleeker Street in the West Village of New York City and is open as of NOW to October 31st (Halloween), Banksy’s pet store is officially open each and every daily from 10am until midnight. The space literally looks like a pet show which can be viewed through the front windows at any point of the day of night. The space is 300 square feet and can’t hold more than 20 people at any one time.
This is the first time that Banksy has used animatronics and a show with absolutely no graff. or street art techniques.
Matt and Kim are an infused indie pop duo from Brooklyn with raw and catchy tunes. Their track Yea Yeah which really allowed them to take off came out over a year ago and they have done it again with the newly released Daylight single [video above]. I first say Matt and Kim in Toronto last summer when they played at Mod Club and quickly realized that they are probably the happiest people I have ever seen. Their whole set both of them had a huge smile across their faces and were authentically loving life being super fun and just playing their music. If you want proof if this claim just watch their new video for Daylight or their Yea Yeah video, happiest people ever!
Matt and Kim have an upcoming tour and perfectly enough they are coming to Ottawa again playing at Mavericks. I am there and so should you! If your hitting it let me know! Pick up your tickets at EndHits YE!

Trousers London is a London-based premium men’s jeanswear label recently launched by a team of four multi-disciplinary creatives.
Trousers London makes jeans for the genuine modern day gentlemen, for the man who loves the thrill of the new and is always at the forefront of the avant-garde. This season, however, brings the launch of new designs for the ladies, a slim leg and a bootleg flare with the distinctive tailoring and quirks of the men’s lines.
Honestly I was soo excited to finally see a creative flair and something new in terms of denim. Trousers London are really pushing forward the modern denim industry. They have an online store so buy a pair before the they run out! Each line is ID’d with a unique number from 1-600 per line.
