Offset Is The Most Careful Off-White Model Ever

On Wednesday, Virgil Abloh presented his latest collection for his label Off-White during Paris Men's Fashion Week featuring a few familiar faces, like rappers Playboi Carti and Cardi B's (maybe, soon-to-be) ex-husband Offset who walked very slowly along the runway almost as if to say "do you see this coat?!" Abloh, King Hypebeast, dressed Kulture's father in an oversized maxi puffer coat with a built in crossbody fanny pack, graphic T-shirt, black pants, and dad sneakers. This isn't the first ...

Trail Mix: Maya De Vitry – Song Premiere

Acoustic trio The Stray Birds have long been a favorite of mine. I first heard of the band on my one visit to IBMA, in 2013, and the band turned up on Trail Mix that same year for the first time. It was with sadness that I heard of the band’s dissolution some months ago, as their harmonies, songwriting, and instrumental prowess always impressed me. My sadness didn’t last long, however, as I discovered that Maya De Vitry – guitarist and singer of The Stray Birds – was dropping her debut solo rec...

Toro y Moi Contemplates Late Capitalism on 'Outer Peace'

It didn't take long for chillwave to become a punchline after its rapid ascendancy in the late 2000s, and it must have been tough to be Toro y Moi (the alias of producer Chaz Bear, fka Chaz Bundwick), an act known synonymously, and perhaps unfairly so, with the genre. One of the first genres born almost entirely out of the influence of the Internet, chillwave was quickly deemed too easily replicable and far too reliant on provoking cultural nostalgia.But a few proprietors of the sound, like ...

Anita O'Day: August 1960

In 1952, Norman Granz signed singer Anita O'Day to his Clef label. Clef became Norgran in 1954 and then Verve in 1955. Throughout the 1950s, O'Day recorded more than 20 albums for Granz's labels. Most of the recordings are quite good, but only a few are excellent. Two that stand out are Waiter, Make Mine Blues, arranged by Russ Garcia, and Incomparable, arranged by Bill Holman. Both were recorded in August 1960. The quality of O'Day's seductive voice and magic of her sassy approach often were ...

It's Pretty & Pink & All Over Instagram — But Is Today's Diet Food Good For You?

Bethany Curve Are Back, and This Time It's 'Murder!' (album premiere)

None More bands should have their own mottos. Californian shoegazers Bethany Curve have long had one: "Atmosphere | Arrangement | Sound | Layering | Noise."

Behold Moebius’ Many Psychedelic Illustrations of Jimi Hendrix

The 1995 release of posthumous Jimi Hendrix compilation Voodoo Soup has divided fans and critics for over two decades now. But whatever its merits, its cover art should hold an honored place in every Hendrix fan’s collection. Drawn by the legendary cult comic artist Moebius from a photograph of Hendrix eating soup in France , it captures the sound Hendrix was moving toward at the end of his life—his head exploding in flames, or mushroom clouds, or pink psychedelic bronchial tubes. The image com...

Muslim-American Journalist Noor Tagouri Says Vogue Misrepresented Her

It's no secret that the fashion industry, and the fashion media, have a lot of work to do when it comes to true diversity and inclusivity. Vogue magazine, in particular, has come under fire in recent months for cultural missteps and mistakes.It look the title 126 years to work with a Black photographer on a cover, so it's no wonder that one of its writers could refer to Beyoncé’s hair as a “hip-length afro,” or suddenly name Timberland boots a “fresh idea” because a supermodel wore them.
