Our August mixtape

Summer is coming to a close, and this month’s mix pays homage, but to be honest we’ll still probably be bumping summer jams well into winter. On this playlist you’ll find tracks from Japanese Breakfast, Everyone Is Dirty, Father John Misty, and much more. Oh and if you miss Rdio as much as we do, check out Spotio.

AM Commute

How do you feel about your morning commute? I’m torn. When it takes too long, it can be dreadful, but I’ve found the absence of one removes a space of time to gather my thoughts, read, or prepare for the day. We put together short videos of our morning commutes from up and down the West Coast. If you’d like to join us in sharing yours, tag it #hmcommute on Instagram.

Our July mixtape

When we were putting together this month’s mixtape, the song selection got dark, I think because we’re all spending too much time dwelling in the doom and gloom predictions of the internet. Luckily, a quick trip to Woodsist Festival influenced the final selection and brought balance to include some dreamy tunes. On this edition, you’ll find tracks from Yumi Zouma, Nice as Fuck, Kari Faux, Sugar Candy Mountain and more. Kick back and have a listen!

It’s what’s on the inside

I love Toddland apparel and when I recently bought a few new pairs of their shipwreck shorts, finding Norm the disapproving seal inside was just lox on my bagel. What other brands do a good job with their tags or interiors? p.s. Fuck Norm, these shorts are dope.

Unlock history with a QR code

QR codes seem mostly useless, but artist Stan Flouride put them to good use when he made a mural of one in San Francisco’s famed Haight neighborhood. Simply snap a photo of the mural with a QR reader and you’re treated to historical photos of the neighborhood. Pretty rad, right?

Stan also gives walking tours of the neighborhood. If you want one from a legend, give him a ring at 415-863-1621.
