Meant to post this last week, better late than never… recap video of the 3rd annual Wheels & Waves event host by the Southsiders. Biarritz (and that whole section section of coast) is a place I’d like to visit one day soon, tying that trip in with W&W might not be such a bad idea.
‘No place like home. After giving up on the ‘Californian Dream’, Dean Petty returned east to the tight-knit scene of Cow Bay, Nova Scotia, a place he grew to love growing up. Desillusion Magazine presents ‘In Search of Dean Petty’, an exclusive short film by wild photographer Kealan Shilling. Shot entirely on Kodak Tri-X Super 8.’
As a Scotian boy who became a west coaster, I need to get back to my birthplace for a session someday soon – beautiful short by Desillusion.
A 45 min experimental film shot entirely on Super 16mm – this looks to be as rad as it gets, and it features a host of dudes we respekt like Trevor Gordon and Scotty Stopnik.
Following on the heels of this summer ’14 lookbook, Cluct give a look at their current collection via video, rocksteady jams and that garage-influenced Americana vibe that has always defined the label.
Looks like a good party – Brixton video game strong as always.
Justin Morrison aka Scrappers is a man of many activities; drawing, painting, camping, surfing, moto riding and i am sure the list goes on. Born on Vancouver Island and now based in Portland, Scrappers is all about the adventure life and he wants to share and explore that with you, so much so he is looking to launch a free adventure/lifestyle mag called STAY WILD. To help get things off the ground he has started a Kickstarter page to raise money for the printing costs of the first issue. This looks like it is going to be a super rad publication, one I can fully support and if you feel the same head on over to the Kickstarter and throw down in the name of adventure…
Another year in the books and a ton of great music to celebrate: 2013 was a stellar year across genres, and as always it was hard to keep up with everything and make the time to give the repeat in-depth listens these releases warranted. Top highlights for me include Montreal’s Bummer who released 2 EPs of flawless modern punk, Hamilton’s Jessy Lanza and her impeccable debut LP on Hyperdub entitled Pull My Hair Back, Alpinist sideproject Jungbluth and their relentless LP Part Ache, Brighter Arrows and their gripping take on post hardcore w/ Dreamliner, and Denzel Curry with his dark narration of youth culture via N64. Above and after the jump and a random assortment of tunes that stayed on rotation and will carry in to 2014… give a listen and hopefully there’s something new here for you.
‘Skull Skates is the oldest skateboard brand in Canada. What better way to celebrate this fact than by making a commercial. Special guest appearances by the JAKS gang and 1980′s Skull Skates legend (and JAK member) Carlos Longo’
It doesn’t get any better than this. Skull Skates, the originals and still ruling.
