Sounds Spooky

Today’s the day to indulge the dark and the strange, to celebrate the ridiculous–the veil between this world and the other side is at its thinnest! This is also a good excuse to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror. And you’re going to need something to listen to as you paint your

Guilty Pleasures

Everyone has that song, the one that makes you feel so good no matter what, even if you’ve had the worst day ever. The song to which  you’ve likely made up an elaborate dance routine (at least in your head), despite the fact you would probably change the channel if you were around friends and it

Playing Favorites with Ultrademon

Mid-week we’re kinda in the need of a serious pick-up and blast of the weird to get to Friday. Chicago DJ, producer and Coral Records founder Ultrademon is just the trick. He’s currently throwing bonkers parties called “MAINFRAME” with his sweetheart (a performer and DJ named Zombelle) and working on his first full-length record for

British Invasion

We’re having a British invasion inspiration in Nasty Gal HQ, obsessed with that period in the 1960s and 70s when everything musically and stylistically interesting in the United States was brought to us overseas by our old friend, England. From mod to punk, these genres were all headed up by rebellion and wild expression. Here

Su Tissue

With her beautifully strange and sometimes jarring voice, Su Tissue had a lilt of sweetness that gave away her legendary shyness. Recordings of Suburban Lawns, the Long Beach-based band she fronted in the late 70s and early 80s, are few and far between, and videos of them are even more rare.  Su’s one of those

Party On With Ch-Ch-Chen

Parisian DJ Louise Chen a.k.a. Ch-Ch-Chen kicked off our SUPER NASTY Party at the Westway during NYFW with a set that got everyone on the dance floor and hyped for live performances from Blood Orange and Syd Tha Kyd. To keep the party going, we asked her to share a few of her favorite songs and

Now Playing At Nasty Gal HQ

We’ve been known to get (almost) as excited about discovering an amazing band as we do when we find the perfect pair of shoes. Since we often wear them out just as quickly, we decided to ask our music-obsessed team what they’re currently playing on repeat. “1991” by Azealia Banks “So this song has been

Back To The Future

Since Nasty Gal HQ is abuzz with excitement over our first collection, it seemed only natural for it to be the inspiration for this week’s soundtrack. From Kraftwerk, the pioneers of electronic music to a young David Bowie floating in space, it’s time to turn up the tunes that blast vintage into the digital age.

The City That Never Sleeps

A killer playlist sets the mood for every party, and with ours just weeks away, we’re getting inspired by one of NYC’s most iconic institutions. CBGB defined the punk music scene of the Seventies, setting the stage for most (if not all) of our favorite bands from the era. This one goes out to the place

Sounds Like Teen Spirit

As kids of the Nineties, we’ll forever have a weakness for the albums that played on repeat in our bedrooms while we chatted on AOL did homework. From Nirvana unplugged to The Smashing Pumpkins, here are a few of the videos we stayed up late to watch on MTV. “The Man Who Sold The World”
