This is what summer sounds like.

It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with Flood Coats, a new indietronic project from San Diego’s Joel P West and Darla Hawn. Both are absolutely brilliant and their sound is as infectious as they are musicians. Their new video, Parch My Heart sure tastes like summer with endless palm trees, slick rollerblading moves and sun-kissed shorts.  I can’t help but smile and hit repeat.

My neighborhood guide to San Francisco

After nearly 3 years of living in San Francisco, I’ve learned that the tech scene is only a small part of what makes this city special. To me, it is and always will be about the beautiful scenery, diversity of people and local independent businesses that build community and make me feel alive. It was tough to choose just 15 places and these might not be on anyone else’s best of lists, but here’s a neighborhood guide to some of my favorite spots in the city.

Our May 2014 mixtape

This tape marks five years of monthly mixes, although we’ve been known to drop a few special editions along the way. We’re still having fun putting these together, but all you have to do is kick back and enjoy these jams. Let us know what your favorite track is.

Chipotle just became a literary powerhouse.

Chipotle just became a literary powerhouse. That or they have one hell of a creative agency. Starting today, you’ll find long-form (yes, think Medium) stories written all over Chipotle cups and bags. It’s being kicked off by author Jonathan Safran Foer, followed by scribes Judd Apatow, Sheri Fink, Malcolm Gladwell, Bill Hader, Michael Lewis, Toni Morrison, Steve Pinker, George Saunders and Sarah Silverman. They’re calling it “Cultivating Thought” and I for one can’t wait to order up some chips and guacamole.

Neighborhood guide: Philadelphia

Thanks to our homies at WeJetSet, every minute I’ve spent in the city of brotherly love has been incredible. These guys run the town with an assortment of creative ventures and community projects, so it was only natural to ask Rashid to share his favorite places to eat, drink, read and get together with friends on and off the beaten path of Philadelphia.
