It’s no secret that I almost never listen to the radio. We all know that shit is repetitive and I at least think it can get pretty boring pretty quickly. I will get into a long conversation with you about why I hate a majority of what’s “hot” right now in mainstream music if you let me. That being said, I do like listening to music, even just as a background filler, basically all day. It’s almost as if I can’t make a move without music. My mom was in a band in the 70′s. My dad plays the drums and guitar like Santana. My sister does too, minus the drums, add in the Classical Flute. I cannot escape my musical roots, so I’ll embrace them instead. More on that later.
I have really been on this wave of what I like to think of as Boutique Music- it’s what would be playing (in my mind) at some snooty, upscale boutique where the customer service probably is terrible but you don’t care because they sell Yohji Yamamoto and Comme Des Garcons. I’ve said it before, I really like music I can kind of zone out to. And more and more lately that zone-out music has been electro/soulful/and definitely nothing I’ve heard on the radio. Spotify has really become my best friend, playing me exactly what I want to hear and then introducing me to an artist I’ve never heard of. I know I’m not the only one. Spotify has introduced me to artists and bands such as Disclosure, Quadron, Julio Bashmore and Poliça to name a few.
Below are a few of my favorite songs for the moment. I hope you at least like one as much as I do. And if you are feeling it, head over to Part One of this series. Enjoy!
Disclosure Feat. Eliza Doolittle “You And Me”
DJ Shadow Feat. Little Dragon “Scale It Back” (Silkie Remix)
B. Bravo “Computa Love”
Parallel Dance Ensemble “Juices”
Still with me? Last but not least, here’s my mix, with the help of Frantz Mza, of even more weird jams:
You may not have heard of A-Morir Eyewear , but you most certaintly have seen it on almost every hot celebrity out there right now. Kerin Rose is the incredable desginer behind such unique shades worn by Rihanna, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Will.I.Am, Snoop Dogg, Fergie, Adam Lambert, Tyra Banks, Ke$ha, Courtney Love, Mariah Carey, Kat De Luna, Nicki Minaj, Estelle, Cassie, Jazmine Sullivan, and Kid Sister.
Using all different shapes and materials to “protect” your eyes, this remarkable eyewear creator uses pearls,lace,studs,Swarovski crystals, and chains to hand-craft these glam shades. These really make a statement and are probably in normal people non-celebrity world your best bet at the perfect accessory. I want these like now. I always wondered where these celebrities got their shades (Nicki Minaj’s shades on 106 and Park where like whoa!) and now I see that many of the styles I was curious about were desgined by Kerin Rose. The shades range from $200-$550 which is a bit much for my pockets but if you got the cash and love sunglasses these are the ones to get!
All man and her new colection was shown recently at Stonesthrow Ivory Tower Party this past week and its incredable just to see the different styles of glasses that are possible. Its truely a piece of art !
Check out her website to cop some killer shades and dicover more about this unique accesories brand! Follow them on Twitter @kerinrose.
