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”

Black Magic

With the final days of summer drawing near, we’ve been noticing our closet and tunes taking a turn toward the dark side. To get you in the mood for the return of sweater weather, we rounded up the tracks we’ve been playing on repeat, from ’60s psychedelia to lo-fi perfection. “Believer” by John Maus “By

Digital Underground

With one of our loudest vintage collections ever coming your way tomorrow, we thought it was only fitting to make a soundtrack for the 90’s club kid-inspired finds. So if you have a weakness for rainbows, black lights and Spice Girls, this one’s for you. “Creature” by Kim Ann Foxman “Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules
