Throwback Thursday: The Faces

20 Jan


The Rock term “Supergroup” is one usually reserved for bands like The Yardbirds, Blind Faith, Traveling Wilbury’s, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and the like. Most people wouldn’t immediately recognize the British rock band, The Faces, as being a part of that conversation.

Flavor of the Week: Aloe Blacc

18 Jan

Orange County MC, Soul Singer, and multi-instrumentalist Aloe Blacc is blowing up, and rightfully so. The 90’s Hip Hop veteran (Emanon) is back with his most organic release to date, and his latest with Stone’s Throw Records.

Flavor of the Week: Lord Huron

11 Jan

The LA-based Michigan-transplant Ben Schneider is back with his second Lord Huron EP, Mighty (the follow-up to his debut EP, Into The Sun). This world traveler gives us four songs, independently released, with carib-afro influenced rhythms lying under a bed of rich harmonies and Sufjan-esque melodies …Love.


Listen to “Mighty” by Lord Huron

Cover Up: She & Him

10 Jan

_____________________________________________________________________________

In our Cover Up posts, RCM uses the color scheme of an album cover to build an outfit! To sharpen our style skills, we’ll even attempt to match the design style or era of the album cover in our fashion choices.

_____________________________________________________________________________

Our first ever Cover Up features a uniquely designed album cover from “Volume 1” by the girl-guy duo, She & Him. The designer used some crafty tools in building this cover (we love how the design looks like it’s screen printed onto a t-shirt!), and we’ve tried our best to mimic the playful style of the cover design in the outfit. Also, we think this outfit is just as ready to travel as the girl on the cover apparently is, so get ready to jet set in this ensemble.

Pants: These amazing red-orange cigarette pants from Urban Outfitters are a perfect color match to the background of the album. Not to mention super hot. $49.00

Shirt: This so so cute bicycle tee from CausticThreads captures the playful vibe of the cover art. $18.00

Shoes: Man, these suede pumps are just… doin’… work. This classic silhouette from Urban comes in a plethora of lovely shades, but we loved them in orange/red. $49.00

Cardigan: A cozy-looking cardi from ModCloth adds that splash of beige that we see in the “screen printed” clouds on the She & Him cover. It also makes for a warm plane ride or road trip. $29.99

Necklace: How perfect! This vintage suitcase fused glass pendant we found on Etsy is not only the perfect shade of blue, but also looks just like our little traveling girl’s suitcase! $20.00

Bag: My personal favorite from this set, this vintage brown faux leather purse from RubysRed sure beats lugging around that giant suitcase and is great for every-day. (You better snag this before I do.)  $20.00

Get the music: She & Him’s album “Vol. 1” can be snagged on iTunes for a mere $9.99. Pick it up, kids. I promise, this purchase will not sit in your closet, never to be worn.
