Why must you tempt me Ghostly?

I don’t need another wristwatch, but this collab between Ghostly and VOID Watches has me straight up salivating. It’s clean, simple and I love Ghostly’s logo discreetly sitting on the dial. They only made 200 of these, so buy me this soon. Please?



Work fucking harder. It’s a way of life.

“WorkHarder taught me not to scam my friends and family to get funding for my band’s tour, but to well… work harder and make music people actually want to listen to.” Sir Reggie Watts sent me here, but even if he wasn’t in this it’d still be pretty funny.

NFL aerobics at their finest

It’s been a long time since I regularly watched football on Sundays, but if I have one wish, it’s this. Instead of trotting out some over the hill rockstar or Top 40 songstress at halftime of the Superbowl, let’s mortify America with these timeless NFL aerobics.

Our November 2014 mixtape

I used to like mixtapes. I still like them, but I used to too. Consider that right there to be a little hint of how we’re starting things off this month. Besides the return to first track standup, you’ll find tracks from Les Sins, Wampire, Cymbals Eat Guitars and more. Kick back and click for your next hour of tunes.

p.s. Not seeing a tape above? Pocket computer users head here.

PostSecret just dropped an album

We’re big fans of both PostSecret and One Hello World, so we were pumped to get an early listen of their collaboration for the PostSecret album. It takes spoken secrets from the PostSecret Live: UK and Ireland Tour and sets them against some beautifully music composed from One Hello World’s Jared Brickman. If you can make it happen, lie down, throw your headphones on and give this a proper listen.

There are tales of despair that are sure to help someone out there feel less alone, but among my favorites are why one woman really enjoys breastfeeding in the public and the time a little girl dressed up as a tree to be closer to the birds. The one about voicemails from loved ones is hauntingly beautiful too. Between the sincerity of the readers and music with a flair for the dramatic, I think you’ll dig this just as much as I do. The British accents don’t hurt either. You can preview below and support on Bandcamp.
