VIDEO: Toro Y Moi “Still Sound”

Tunez: Oh Land x Lykke Li

We, over at ITYS, first caught a glimpse of Oh Land this past year at CMJ. The unassuming Danish beauty was captivating, and we’ve only expected big things from her ever since. And with a little help from Twin Shadow, White Nights is legit next level. Oh Land: White Nights (Twin Shadow Remix) I wasn’t...

Fashion: Moncler Gamme Bleu x Men’s RTW x Fall 2011

Thom Browne’s fall collection for Moncler Gamme Bleu paid homage to the tradition of British hunting. The blazers were filled with down and patterned with hounds tooth, there are the oxford check shirts, cardigans, ties and also trench coats, but as impressed as I was with the actual collection itself, I was almost doubly impressed...

Tunez: Beth Ditto x Hudson Mohawke

Today’s post is all about songs that just hit you in the fucking face. First off is the lead track from Beth Ditto’s (lead singer of the gossip) debut solo EP, Deconstruction.

Tunez: Electric Wire Hustle x Museum of Bellas Artes

Some songs are just undoubtedly sexy. This is one of those songs.

Tunez: ceo + Plan B

Fuck it. Beyonce’s Halo is the perfect song you love to hate. The kind of song you strictly despise upon first listen. But then, with every subsequent listen, you find yourself secretly singing along. And before you know it, your in the back seat of a volvo belting “remember those walls I built/well, baby their...

Tunez: Video + Wanda and Wonder

Video: Nicole So, what if Boyz II Men and New Order had a kid who really liked Prince? I’m guessing they’d sound a lot like new Brooklyn 4-piece Video. The soulful, R&B vocals paired with the shimmering synth sounds of the 80′s is a refreshing addition to the slew of new wave influenced bands of...

Tunez: Games

Games is 1980′s inspired brooklyn duo Dan Lopatin (Oneohtrix Point Never) and Joel Ford (Tiger City). Together they’ve topped countless 2010 lists with their new brand of synthpop – taking the sounds of a seemingly kitschy era and illustrating that there just may be some lasting value in the future-obsessed, bad action star, gaudy sweater...

Tunez: Midnight Star + James McMorrow

Midnight Star: The Midas Touch Many thanks to Eighteen, from Broad&Market, for reminding me about this true jam. The r&b, electro-funk group, Midnight Star, was started in the 1980′s at Kentucky State University (shoutout to the thorobreds!). They achieved their biggest success in the U.K. with The Midas Touch, which hit #8. If you’re trying...
