Monday, May 12, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Lady DJ: Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor
This summer we’re definitely hittin’ the highway in denim cutoffs, crochet dresses and fringe tops, but to make our Southwestern road trip totally complete, we’re going need some killer tunes as we cruise along the coast. Enter: DJ/model/It girl Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor. The 21-year-old daughter of John Taylor (bassist for Duran Duran) and Amanda de Cadenet (actress/photographer) put together a playlist influenced her NYC/California-via-London lifestyle and chatted with us about her road trip essentials. Check it out below!

Wednesday, May 7, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: TEEN
New York-based foursome TEEN are everything pop music is missing today. Their latest LP The Way And The Color (on Carpark Records) is a catchy, experimental-yet-modern take on classic R&B and harmonized pop. Leader Teeny Liberstein (formerly of Here We Go Magic) along with her two sisters (Lizzie and Katherine) and Boshra AlSaadi have this way of creating songs that build, swirl up like a flower on a vine and then explode into something totally beautiful. TEEN are intelligent, fun women who utilize their musical skills as much as their fashion sense to create a full package on stage. We took the ladies hostage to talk about the beginnings of the band, their current American tour with Phantogram, onstage fashion and the battle with high heels.

Sunday, April 20, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Light One Up
Besides being Sunday (hooray!), Easter, and our #GIRLBOSS’ birthday, it’s also the lazy girl’s favorite holiday: 4/20. In attempt to make your day of snacking as good as can be, we’ve rounded up our most favorite reggae (and dancehall) songs to set the perfect soundtrack. Light up that doobie, hit that bong, or even take a good ol’ toke out of your pipe. Press play and get super comfy—you might be sitting there for a while.
Thursday, April 17, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Meredith Graves
Meredith Graves reminds me of Judy Garland—if Judy Garland threw herself around in circles on stage, stomping her feet and manipulating her hands to match her lyrical questions of marriage, love and rejection. The Syracuse-based front woman and her band Perfect Pussy recently signed to Captured Tracks and their critically-acclaimed debut release Say Yes To Love sent them across the country and beyond, a few times over. Always on the road and turning heads, Graves is a pixie dust, banging ball of fury with unique style. I would call her “old-world-charm-meets-early-millennium-pop-punk”. I sat down with my dear friend Graves to talk about fashion on the road and take a peek through her favorite looks in some tour snapshots. —Mish Way
Tuesday, April 15, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Chromeo
Chromeo and I go wayyy back. Let’s just say I made a YouTube video of myself dancing in ’80s pumps to their song “Needy Girl” back in 2007 and (very proudly) posted it to my LiveJournal. Yeah, it was that long ago. (Don’t bother Googling it, people. That shiz is on lockdown.) As it turns out, Dave 1 and P-Thugg stopped by the Fonda Theatre right here in L.A. to play a show before they headed off to the desert, and I got to chat ‘em up about all the latest haps—their upcoming album White Women, festival fashion, and their love for JNCOs. (Seriously.) Check it out below. —Chrissy Mahlmeister
