Jimmy Page revisits the classics on wax

Nothing beats the visceral satisfaction of finding music classics on vinyl at the local swap meet. Or better yet, swiping classic rock records from Dad’s forgotten collection. But there has to be something said about getting those old jams freshly remastered onto brand new, fresh-off-the-press wax.

Lawrence Bros team up with legendary guitarist & producer

If Disclosure gets any shit, it’s usually from old school purists who don’t think the young’uns have the necessary age to reference their progenitors as well as they do.

Maybe it was being a New Yorker and finally having some hometown heroes succeed again, but whatever it was I was hooked. Part of that appeal […]

You Can't Be a Half Gangster.

There’s been a lot of talk lately centering around the Best Shows on TV. And while Mad Men and Breaking Bad get their much due respect (as well as deceased seminal titles like The Wire and Sopranos), I always marvel at how little attention Boardwalk Empire and Game Of Thrones get in the discussion. Both […]

Five unforgettable musical moments form Weeknd One

Well what can we say, Coachella Weekend One came and went with a mighty sonic boom, lysergic blur and warm tropical brush of palm fronds. It was, as usual, epic. However for the first time ever, it was not the final weekend Coachella had to offer. No, instead of having to wait an entire year […]

Ultra luxury sneakers, patterned loafers & British punk rock boots

The name Jimmy Choo is sacred to women everywhere. The erstwhile Malaysian brand has long won the hearts of the female population with their beautiful high heeled shoes, and has been foraying into men’s shoes for a minute now — the Fall/Winter 2012 collection being their latest addition. The luxury collection consists of black and […]
