Alter – Handmade With Art And Soul

When she’s not creating music with her partner Statik for their band Collide, the lovely and talented kaRIN designs jewelry, t-shirts, and handmade leather accessories that are edgy, hip, and oh so chic.

I’ve been a long-time fan and supporter of Karin’s artistic work in both music and fashion, so I was excited when I heard she launched a retail site where people worldwide can purchase her exquisitely designed products.

L.A. Fashion Weekend Closing Party



Endless Road Entertainment hosted a closing party for L.A. Fashion Weekend at Planet Salon in West Hollywood. The swanky affair—which celebrated Fashion, Art, and Music—called for cocktail attire and guests were dressed to impress.



Including my favorite fashionable duo – Alan McCune and Enrique Godoy Ynzenga. Alan informed me that the second book in the Annabella and the Secret of the Mirrors book will be out soon. The Skinny Executives also have something exciting in the works, which I’ll be able to share with you all in a few weeks.


Planet Salon owners Ginger Boyle and Dean Roybal have been longtime supporters of Mikey Koffman and her LAFW events, so it was only fitting that the closing ceremonies be held in their luxurious salon.

Outasight - Anchor Down


(RPM MSC Dist)

When an artist takes a break from the center stages (The X Factor and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to name a few) and comes back and presents an album that was put together by just his say you might shudder and think of how horrible or get chills of how good it might be. Outasight, our dear readers, is the latter. The single “Anchor Down,” which hit airwaves end of July, lives up to its name and leaves you anchored down listening on repeat while you take a moment to enjoy the hip-hop-esque beats partnered with a unique voice rapping about an unexpected love.

Information Society _hello world

(Hakatak International) 

One of electronic music’s most influential bands, Information Society, is back! Featuring the original founding members Paul Robb (synths), Kurt Larson (vocals) and James Cassidy (bass, keyboards), the group’s new release _hello world blends InSoc’s core sound—warm analog style synths, odd samples, and great beats—with modern pop influences. While all of the tracks emit the Minneapolis based electro unit’s distinct vibe, none sound the same and there is a nice flow from beginning to end.

Mustered Courage – Powerlines


(Travianna Records)

Hailing from Down Under, Mustered Courage is an expert band of songwriters/musicians that breathe new life in the genre of bluegrass. Their latest release, Powerlines, propels the Melbourne based quartet into the current mainstream with its distinct sound that bridges the gap between traditional bluegrass and mainstream folk pop.

The record features a blend of melodic toe-tappers that derive their character from the inclusion of a banjo, mandolin, and fiddle.  It’s hard to listen to Powerlines and not feel good by the end of it. Standouts include: “Standin’ by Your Side,” “Behind the Bullet,” “My Hometown,” and “Still Shining.” Do yourself a favor and check these guys out. They’re on tour through October, and their live show will blow you away. In the meantime, enjoy the video for “Standin’ by Your Side” and download their new album. It’s probably the most pleasantly surprising release of the year. – NIN
