Our friends Mt. Si recently released a beautiful music video for their song “Oh,” featuring singer Sarah Chernoff (of Superhumanoids, the Franks) at the real, picturesque Mt. Si in Israel. Good bud Garret Curtis directed the piece, so we asked him to share some behind-the-scenes shots from their special trip.

Local Natives, Shy Girls & More Share Their Favorite Records of 2015

As the year winds down, we too are slowing our roll and looking back at everything 2015’s given us. In this spirit, we asked some of our friends and family to tell us what their favorite albums of the year have been — new or old — and why. We got in on the fun too. This isn’t a best-of ranking by any means, just a dabbling of what’s moved us. How Nice.


From Lord Huron to Superhumanoids, Director Arms Race's Best Music Videos

For the past six years, our buddy Evan Weinerman aka Arms Race has been one of our favorite music video directors and a standard go-to for us and a number of our best friends in music ranging from Lord Huron to Local Natives to Superhumanoids and more. 

Today, we review our favorite of his clips with some commentary on each from the man himself, whose creative vision never fails to take us somewhere interesting.


A Letter From Kisses: The Inspiration Behind 'Rest In Paradise'

It was our great pleasure Friday to release Kisses' new album, Rest in Paradise. As the Los Angeles duo's third LP, we feel it's their strongest work to date, crafted around great songs and moving grooves, performed live to record with New York's mighty disco band Midnight Magic. 

We are always eager to know and tell a deeper story — below is a letter from Kisses' Jesse Kivel and Zinzi Edmundson have penned explaining their work, influences and creative processes in the context of their ever evolving life together.
