Friday, November 8, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: B O S C O
If you were totally entranced by the catchy beats from our Shoe Cult teaser, you’re probably dying to know who the face is behind that killer single. Well, we certainly were, so we decided to track her down! B O S C O (a.k.a. Brittany Bosco) is an Atlanta-based musician who layers smooth vocals over dreamy electronic beats, and she has super cute style to boot. B O S C O and two of her friends were nice enough to take us on a tour of their Southern town (decked out in head-to-toe Nasty Gal, of course) and total awesomeness ensued.

Monday, October 28, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Meet The Cult: Venus X
Our latest Shoe Cult Ambassador Venus X isn’t just a pretty face, she’s a badass businesswoman and DJ who heads up the infamous underground GHE20G0TH1K parties. She said, “In 2009, I started [GHE20G0TH1K] at a small dive bar in Bushwick, and it has grown to be a cornerstone of NYC youth culture!” To celebrate, she’s throwing an insane Halloween bash this Thursday, and she’ll also be touring with M.I.A. starting November 1 (!!!), so be sure to catch her while she’s still in town. In the meantime, check out the M.I.A.-inspired mix by GHE20G0TH1K regular Mike Q to get you through these last (long) days before All Hallows’ Eve.

Wednesday, October 16, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: Meet The Cult: Eiko Hara
Another day, another Shoe Cult disciple! This morning, we’re gettin’ down with NYC DJ/singer/total babetron Eiko Hara. When she’s not mastering her less-is-more ’90s aesthetic, she contributes to Elle Japan and makes some of the sickest mixes to boot. There’s (truly!) nothing better than a fashionable girl with a great taste in tunes, so we had Eiko create the ultimate Nasty Gal playlist—and, of course, share some of her killer style tips along the way.

Wednesday, October 2, 2013 Studio Soundtracks: K-Pop by Esther Kim
Esther Kim is back! As it turns out, illustrating is not her only forte. This time around, Esther graces the NG blogosphere with a kick-ass playlist on K-Pop. Thanks to her, we now know that not all Korean pop stars are as ridiculous as Psy, and that America seriously needs to step up its game in the music video department.
