We all have different sides to ourselves, provoked by our surroundings. It is an act of physical space affecting our mental space — for Pearl Charles, like a lineage of amazing musicians before her, an important place for inspiration is the desert around Joshua Tree, California.
When we stopped by our favorite local guitar shop, Old Style, recently we were shocked to hear from owner Reuben Cox that the whole thing started basically by accident. And a bit of an odd one at that, considering he's not even really a musician himself.
Our pal photographer (and Princeton drummer) David Kitz's Instagram account has become a recent infatuation — in part because unlike many photographers out there, his account pulls exclusively from pictures shot on his iPhone. We brought this up recently and he said it’s a matter of liking the limitations that come with it.
What was it like growing up in Iran in the 1960s? It's hard to imagine your parent's youth 8,000 in a country you've never known first-hand, and one that's changed so drastically since as well.

As Kisses' Jesse Kivel and his wife (and bandmate) Zinzi Edmundson were waiting for their son to be born, the one piece of advice our co-founder Colin Stutz could offer the new dad was this: As much it might feel like the birth is an end to the pregnancy, it is only a beginning — and one none of us can really prepare for at that.

What started as a joke recently between Cameron and me — teased with a little bit of Twitter razzing for good measure — eventually became one of the most thoughtful text conversations the two of us have had in a long while.
We spoke to Harriet ahead of their performance this weekend at A Sunday Kind Of Love and caught up about being a band, electronic music, burritos, basketball, and the record they are currently fine tuning.
