Happy Friday! Whether you’re basking in the unseasonable warmth of the west coast or freezing your pom-poms off on the east coast, your weekend will surely be better with help from Lion Babe and Childish Gambino. We love this song for the ’90s soul groove (reminiscent of HRH Erykah Badu) and also because Lion Babe is super beautiful and has amazing style. Total inspiration for a smooth, sexy weekend, right?
Happy Friday! Let’s hop in the Wayback Machine to experience one of the best (and most danceable) love songs of all time. Whether you’re whispering sweet nothings to your sweetie or celebrating GALentine’s day with your gal pals, Valentine’s day can only get better with a little soul.
Happy Friday! The weather in Seattle has been grim and gloomy for what feels like…ever. Forever. And ever. And ever. Which has got us feeling punchy and stir crazy, to say the least.
So we invite you to join us on a psychedelic journey (duh) to ease the tedium of 100 years of cold, grey drizzle. Pack your favorite bikini, your gold lamé jumpsuit and your Very Fanciest sunglasses. It’s gonna be a fun ride!
Happy Friday! In honor of the upcoming Superbowl (go, Hawks!), we have no choice but to feature the half-time superstar herself, Katy Perry. (Who happens to be close personal friends with Russell Wilson, btw. Just one more reason to like her.)
There’s something so powerful about music. The way it has the ability to make you laugh, smile, cry or give you goosebumps. I’ve found myself doing all four of these things while listening to the artist Ben Howard. From his lyrics to his beautiful music videos, Ben Howard always amazes me. Although he has a unique sound, if you like artists like Angus & Julia Stone, Bon Iver, or Daughter, you’ll probably like Ben’s music, too.
Here are a few of my favorite music videos from Ben Howard:
I Forget Where We Were
Watching this video never fails to give me chills (especially at 3:30). The video in general has a very Wes Anderson feel, especially with the symmetrical yellow beach chairs and umbrella and coordinated colors.
Ah. I think I love this video so much because you get an amazing sense of what it would be like at one of Ben’s concerts. And I desperately want to go.
Keep Your Head Up
Ok, hands-down favorite music video ever. It makes me want to smile and cry at the same time. It’s a gorgeous video that includes both bubbles and the golden hour. Mix in Ben’s adorable friends sliding down a huge water slide in the middle of the forest…yeah, it’s pretty great.
I hope now you love Ben Howard’s music as much as I do!
Happy Friday! We’ve been listening to this song on repeat for weeks and weeks, and we’re STILL not sick of it. Not even close.
Hopefully you’ll like it even half as much as we do.
P.S. Ugh. January. Fortunately we’re about to launch all kinds of amazing spring looks, so we’ve been feeding our souls on sneak previews of ice-cream pastels and scrumptious silhouettes. You’re gonna love ‘em.
Happy Friday! Well, kind of. In the wake of the tragic terrorist attack at Charlie Hebdo in Paris this week, it seems right to feature something wonderful from France. Our hearts go out to the friends, families and communities of the victims.
Now please enjoy MC Solaar. If you haven’t heard him before, you’re in for a treat.
We could go with resolution videos that are great to work out to. We could go with a “Best of 2014″ thing. We could try to find something about new beginnings or something set in a tropical location to beat the winter blues. But all that sounds like so. Much. Work. And everyone likes watching dogs do amazing tricks, especially in one of those famous one-take OK Go videos, right?
Happy new year, y’all. May your 2015 be filled with interesting people, adorable dogs and toe-tapping tunes.
P.S. We can’t post this video because the band’s name includes the F-bomb, but it’s amazing. If you hate watching cats in a high-speed 1970s-style car chase with dogs, definitely don’t watch.
