Tuesday, September 24, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Disco Ball To the Wall

DISCO

I was born in Miami, rasied in the heat of the Cuban jungle, and stood out way too obviously at my New England Prep-school Homecoming. Don’t think I didn’t love it, but I was the girl dancing by myself in my way-too-tight turqouise dress and sky-high heels, loving the all-too-few David Bowie songs the Top 40 DJ played. It was with that in mind that I put together this mix—it’s got a little something for the couples grinding under the disco ball, the dancing queen breaking hearts and taking names, and the girls like me, who love the music but just can’t wait to graduate and get the f-out of there. Enjoy! -Cat

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Icona Pop

If you’ve turned on the radio, been to a club, or gone pretty much anywhere with music in the past few months, you’ve likely heard Icona Pop’s wildly popular single, “I Love It.” Now Aino and Caroline, the swedish duo behind Icona Pop, have turned out yet another super catchy dance tune. “All Night” delivers the same feel-good vibes as Icona Pop’s first hit, but the music video adds an entirely new dimension to the song. Taking nods from Paris Is Burning and the 80′s ballroom scene, the duo created a video that promotes freedom of expression, acceptance, and going a little crazy with friends. We chatted with Aino to hear about Icona Pop’s style, plans for the future, and groupies! Yeah, they have groupies.

Thursday, September 5, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Shoe Cult Kool-Aid

NASTYKOOLAID

For many of us, the first cult we ever join is the cult of fandom that hits when we discover our new favorite band. For me, that moment hit in high school when I discovered the Jesus and Mary Chain, and I’m not sure I ever full recovered (not that I wanted to, of course). So because every cult needs a soundtrack, here are a few tracks that never fail to lull me into trance, and will totally seduce you into drinking the Shoe Cult Kool-Aid. You can thank us later. -Cat

Tuesday, September 3, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Feathers

Meet Feathers, the band behind the kick-ass song in our Shoe Cult video. Pop’s most entrancing new four-piece female band started life as the one-woman recording project of Anastasia Dimou, who left her NYC home in 2011 in pursuit of ‘space and a spark’ in Austin. She soon found inspiration in the open skies and wide plains of western Texas, where she penned a hypnotic debut record and assembled a troupe of likeminded musicians—Courtney Voss, Kathleen Carmichael and alternating members Destiny Montague and Alex Gehring.

Having released their debut album If All Here Now back in May, Feathers have gone on to tour with Little Boots and opened for Depeche Mode. As the band prepares to embark on its first West Coast tour, Nasty Gal caught up with Anastasia to talk about astrology, taking off for Austin, and the power of being alone

Though Los Angeles is a city of blue skies and sunshine, it still loves the occasional trip to the dark side. And for that we turn to Tamara Sky, the dark horse DJ and producer behind Lil Death, one of the wildest parties in the City of Angels. Tamara DJ’d our second No Bummer Summer Party this past weekend, and we caught up with her for a few minutes to talk snack foods and why she likes her music like her rollercoasters.
