Rain, rain, don’t go away! This week’s Sew & Tell guest will have you hoping for the next drizzly day: Yurika Nakazono and Marie Saeki are co-founders of TERRA NEW YORK, a the first fashion label dedicated exclusively to creating stylish, cutting-edge rain wear. The TERRA NEW YORK designs are sleek, sophisticated garments and accessories, built for endurance but created with incredible elegance. On today’s show, Yurika joins me to talk about the start of the label, the unique biodegradable plastics used for TERRA NEW YORK pieces, the practical and aesthetic considerations behind each design, some exciting new projects on the horizon for the line, and more. Plus, I’ve put together a mix that reflects the rain, indie-rock-style; you’ll hear from legendary Tex-Mex-folk band Calexico, Swedish experimental electro-pop songstress Jenny Wilson, and Brit noise pop group Evans The Death. All that and more this hour, so put away that sad, drippy umbrella, pull up a chair, and learn how to stay stylishly dry like a pro with Sew & Tell on BTR!

Happy Spring! It is the first official day of the season, and I thought it was the perfect time to use our heads & do some beauty “spring cleaning.” Rubi Jones is a personal and editorial hairstylist based in Paris and New York, whose beautiful blog reflects her refined sensibilities and taste for timeless looks, combined with her savvy knowledge of the most recent trends. Trained at Bumble & Bumble here in NYC, Rubi’s styling work is effortlessly elegant and it’s easy to see why New York Magazine gave her the title “The Braid Whisperer.” On today’s show, Rubi talks about the career path that led her to styling, what made Bumble & Bumble a great training experience, some of the trends she spotted on the F/W runways, timeless hairstyles that transcend trends, a few of her favorite summer hair care products, and an exciting new project she’s recently launched. Plus, you’ll find a ton of new music in the playlist today, including a song off the solo debut from Arcade Fire member Will Butler, a track from the much-anticipated sophomore release from Brit band Evans the Death, and a new EP from talented up-and-comer Petite Noir. So join us for a simple springtime makeover with Sew & Tell on BTR!
People have been saying that I haven't been playing enough ROCK lately? Well, stuff it! This week's show proves that you can rock without rock! Hits from Simon Joyner, Jib Kidder, Ex Hex, Destruction Unit, and more!
