track six

vanishing system - m83 / we own the sky remix

my friends james and paul live in sf and are the vanishing system. this is a great remix of a great song. so fucking beautiful..

i wish i had a hilarious photo to put right here of that one time paul spent christmas with us he got peer pressured into swinging on the rope in the canyon while hungover and couldn't even hang on for more than one second and smashed himself real bad. not being able to hold in your own laughter is one of the coolest things ever.

pizza party

it's time for the internet to finally meet our new kitten, pizza.

i swear he's a robot. someone has a remote control and is constantly making him do the cutest shit imaginable. there's no way he's coming up with these shenanigans with his own kitten brain.
we found him on petfinder.com, and picked him up from judy's house (his foster mom). her whole house was crammed with cat paintings, stuffed animals and figurines.nova didn't love him at first at all but after about a week of brainwashing (and help from joe pease, the animal whisperer) they are now best friends.

track five

chelan - faultlinesi contacted the band waxfire for the mixtape, to find that they have broken up but reformed a new band with the same members, called chelan. turns out, the boy i was talking with happens to be the boyfriend of kime buzzelli. she painted their album cover, and they let me use elements of this beautiful cover for our mixtape cover.
summer machines available on itunes.

john just showed me this beck video featuring chloe sevigny in a fringe dress doing a shimmy.. i guess it's from last year but i've never seen it.it will totally make you want to dance. i've been realizing lately that i don't do much dancing anymore, and i don't know what the fuck that's all about. too busy? no time to dance? i used to be the girl to start the dance parties. i have to do something about this disease i'm getting asap.

track four

silver jews - tennessee
can you believe i got permission to put a silver jews song on our mixtape? i sure can't. i'm going to send cassie some dresses to thank her. i don't care that she won't be wearing them on stage anymore.. if she wears them in her backyard on a lawn chain in tennessee that's good enough for me.

track three

the finches - last favor

a dreamy band from san francisco. they seem to be very lovely people too. their first full length is now out, called human like a house. hear them on myspace. one of my very favorite songs on the mix.

track two

emily jane white - hole in the middle
i just discovered emily jane white. i love an ethereal voice over blues/folky songs. kind of a cross between chan marshall and maybe edie brickell. 'wild tigers i have known' is a really great song too (listen to it here), but i couldn't use it because it was written for a movie of the same name, which now i really want to see. by cam archer, and it's about two teenage boys. here are a couple stills:
looks like it could be nice and jacked, just the way we like em.

track one

lissy trullie - self taught learner

i've written about lissy before, back when the only way you could listen to them was to click on their myspace page, but now you can buy their ep on itunes! it's only $5.94 for six songs.

she also happens to the be the girl making out in Sophomore's Spring look book..and harley, the bands bass player is the one modeling Sophomore's cut out dress:

bona drag mixtape volume 6

the sixth mixtape is out and shipping with all orders now. this one feels so much more special and personal because i got permission from all of the musicians to include their songs.. and it took many hours of searching for the perfect small-time bands (that also wanted to participate). it's nice having limitations sometimes. kind of like in art class when you are only allowed to use one color or you have to draw upside down.. you end up creating something extraordinary that you wouldn't have otherwise.

i'll be going through the tracklist, since all of these bands are definitely worth mentioning.

chloe looks so very pretty in missbehave mag. she says golden door made her cry, and being there made her laugh. i really need to find the time to see being there.. it's by hal ashby (who directed harold and maude, one of the best movies of all time).

here she wears our dawn sharp limited edition floral hotpants!
gorgeous black lace leggings... they look similar to our scout leggings.

so stoked to now be carrying scout. if you haven't been to the scout store in la, please do yourself a favor and make it a destination. the owner, joey grana curates the collection and handpicks each amazing vintage piece. he also designs the house line. two more pieces of strong evidence that scout is awesome: apparently scouts 'ideal customer' is patti smith... and scout dressed miranda july in this 2007 fashion spread for venus mag.
