Coney Island hosts the 23rd Annual Sand Sculpture Competition!
The Meaning Of Life is a band from Brooklyn who pulls together the oft-surreal lyricism of singer/bassist Marta DeLeon and the emotive guitar lines of Christian Gallardo to form dreamy pop music with hints of shoegaze and psych-rock. This music video -- the band’s first -- is for “Laura V.,” a song off their first EP, Play Fuego, and was produced in cooperation with BTRtv/BreakThru Radio.
Happy 5th of July! It's officially the peak of summer heat, so I thought we'd cool off this week on Sew & Tell with my new favorite beachwear discovery: Australian-based label We Are Handsome. Indhra Chagoury and Jeremy Sommers' wild, limited-edition prints are the stuff of fashion dreams, adorning swimsuits and loungewear that capture the quintessence of summers spent in surf and sand. On today's show, the two designers join me to talk about the start of their unique collaboration, some trademarks of Australian style, a few of their favorite beaches to visit, and more. Plus, I've got a playlist full of beachy tracks from some of today's best Australian indie rockers - you'll hear songs from Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Twerps, Cut Copy, Tame Impala, and more. So settle back on your beach blanket, tune in, and turn up your style here on BreakThru Radio!
This week's Sew & Tell is a re-broadcast, perfect for BTR's "Best of Summer" theme! Today I have two fabulous guests whose line of sun-protective clothing will help get you and your wardrobe ready for all that summer sun in the months ahead! "But wait," you say, "don't all clothes protect you from the sun?" Well, yes and no. While your favorite organic cotton white tee might shield you from a burn, it doesn't keep out the rays that can cause longer-term damage and contribute to your risk of developing skin cancer. What's a beach-loving lady or lad to do? Anne Botica and Monique Moore developed just what the doctor ordered: Mott 50. This line of stylish garments are well-constructed, fashion-friendly basics, and each piece has an SPF of 50 or higher! Which means that you can relax and enjoy beach days, picnics, and summer music festivals with confidence. On today's show they'll share about how they developed the idea for Mott 50, what makes these clothes so sun-friendly, and a few important skin care statistics that everyone should know. Plus, some great music tracks from artists like Agnes Obel, Julian Lynch, of Montreal, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and more! It's fashion Friday here on BTR...
The warm weather is here, and it's time to start getting all those cute summer clothes back out! This week's guest knows a thing or two about summer style: Calley Dawson is a designer for the label Free People, and curator/editor of trend-centric fashion blog The Cult of Style. On today's show, she'll talk about the art of trend forecasting, the perks and challenges of designing for a major label, and what it takes to grow a solid blog following. Plus, new music from Daughter, Alessi's Ark, !!! and more, along with tons of headlines from this week in fashion and entertainment (Gwyneth! Gatsby! Punk! Don Draper! Oh my!) So turn up, tune in, and stay on trend with Sew & Tell on BTR!
