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!

Friday, May 9, 2014 Globetrotter: Mags To Snag While On A European Vacay
I really, really love magazines. I’m moving to New York soon and I’m having the most anxiety about potentially not being able to bring my entire magazine collection. And before you ask, no, I’m not really into iPad or digital versions—I’m all about that page flippin’ and dog ear-ing. The only problem with this serious hobby of mine is that the really good magazines are really hard to find in the U.S., and when you do find them, they’s usually European imports and stupidly expensive. Pretty much any European-published fashion magazine will be way cooler than it’s American counterpart. They’re not scared to take risks and aren’t trying to please everyone, which lends itself to editorials with a genuine point of view, complete with some nip-slip and provocative styling. In other words, if you like to binge on that really good 80s-90s Supermodel Tumblr, these internationally published glossies make a pretty damn good paper counterpart.
So if you do happen to find yourself in Europe any time soon, I put together this list of magazines you have to buy. And yes, this sort of souvenir purchasing may be the most thrilling and inspiring kind, but it does make your suitcase feel like you are carrying a pile of bricks. My friendly tip—smile super sweetly and say your please and thank yous to enlist the closest strong person boarding the plane to lift your heavy-ass bag into the overhead bin. -Marissa Klurstein, Content Assistant

Thursday, May 8, 2014 Guest Edit: Yasi Salek @ Austin Psych Fest
I’ve been to my fair share of music festivals, from Lollapalooza 1995 (yes, I’m old, but I also saw Sonic Youth, Hole, and Pavement in their prime and you probably didn’t so FU) to a number of Warped Tours (don’t you judge me) to this year’s insane Coachella, plus a whole bunch in between. That’s to say that this year’s Austin Psych Fest wasn’t my first dusty, porta-potty filled rodeo, but I will say it was by far one of the best all-around music festival experiences I’ve ever had.
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.
