Turn To Your Wildlife…

…for inspiration. I think we should have this poster hanging above the bed of every child in the whole world. It reminds me of the WPA posters I love so much.

The Hundred in the Hands - Tom Tom

I am not feeling the Karen O-ish manipulation of the mic. That aside, I think this is a catchy summertime, synth-pop jam -at least, a worthy addition to your hot season mixtape. Bonus - THITH is touring with The Golden Filter, another love of mine.

Check out the sampler for their EP, This Desert:

Weekend Vintage: Spring Garden

A few vintage lovelies inspired by working in my yard all weekend long! I’m so excited for my first little veggie garden!

Francis & the Lights - Numero Dos

I am so in love. You guys are beyond bizarre. This is my favorite thing of the day…

Memoryhouse - Lately

More than the song itself, I love the dreamy aesthetic of the official video for Memoryhouse’s Lately.

My Green Love

Check out my newest acquisition!! Isn’t it perfectly feminine? I’m going to add a belt and some retro-inspired shoes, but it really is perfect as is. I cannot wait to wear it out!

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros - Home

I’m so lame. I totally missed the boat on this one since this track was released last summer. Nevertheless, it is one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Hippies - god bless you. Please take me along for the ride. I will be looking forward to the show at the Pabst on June 7th!

Darling, It’s Alright

Francis & the Lights is blowing my mind with this little ditty. Don’t be deceived by the simplicity and hang on for the end - you’re in for a moment of dance insanity that makes the world ok for a while. Love, love, love.

Gig Poster Love

Some of my favorite modern design comes from gig posters. They’re fascinating. They represent a fleeting, epic experience but the art endures on its own. Here are few that I heart…
