Broke for Free is the moniker of Northern California native and musician Tom Cascino. Using an MPC to create layers of harmonious guitar and sparkling synths, Cascino adds driving rhythms to his music to give it his signature ‘complex chill-wave’ sound. The Gold Lining is no exception. Nike, GoPro, XGames, Converse and Leap Motion have […]
If you’re dreaming of Californian beaches and long summer days, Best Coast is back with a new single to take you right there. Reminiscent of the 60s, The Only Place is a little pocket of sunshine melting away your winter blues with a perfect mix of bubbly lyrics and surf rock punch. This song will […]

Curated by California’s finest art blogger, Jeremy Brautman, the Earth Movement art show brought together art and toy legends from around the world and paired them with kids. Yep, actual kids, to collaborate on some of the sweetest art pieces you’ll ever find. Now on sale.
Working out of his Sacramento studio, DECABET, artist Jason Malmberg creates killer poster designs. I love the lines, color and typography. Now I just need a band to have him do the poster artwork for.
Sofia Lacin and Hennessy Christophel recently completed Same Sun, the hand-painted, abstract mural and kinetic shadow installation on a five-story, 14,000-sf water tank in California. One third of the five month project was hand-held brushwork, done solely by the two artists. The artwork has a unique kinetic element whereby the installation interacts with the sun through shadows that move across the tank and complete the phrase, The Sun Shines Upon Us All, creating an interesting connection between time and place.
Do you remember the first time you went to the beach? This is three year-old Nicole’s first time ever playing at the beach. I don’t remember my first time in the sand or water, but I can only hope that I had this much fun! On a technical note, this was shot entirely on the […]
I absolutely adore Sauce on Hampton in Venice Beach, California. The cultured, little café, buried just off Rose Ave, may only serve up fifteen dishes, but they are all equally divine. The quinoa salad, omelets and the freshly baked macadamia cookie, which comes free with the cheque, tick all the boxes on my list.
Everybody knows that chocolate and coffee are a match made in heaven (really, who can say no to a mocha?). But the story doesn’t end there. Smile Chocolatiers, a new confectioner based in Malibu, California, has set out to prove that coffee’s milder cousin — tea — deserves its own special relationship with the treat. Enter Choclatea, Smile’s line of tea-infused chocolate bars, each of which combines the finest Belgian chocolate with crushed organic tea leaves.
The San Francisco Wheatpaste Project wants to encourage Californian residents to vote Yes on Prop 19 this Tuesday. So to twist their arms just a little further, they’ve created this fun video which documents the street art poster-ing process from the beginning to its not so bitter end. The song is Deceptacon by Le Tigre.
Want a little cannabis butter on that bagel? Or how about a marijuana-infused grape lollipop to help with that afternoon sugar slump? At The Farmacy in Los Angeles, California the ubiquitous food/marijuana relationship is taken to a whole new level.
Californian artist Saelee Oh believes everything in the universe is connected, so it’s only natural that this conviction would be the central theme to her current solo-exhibit Infinite Roots. Her stunning work often depicts a harmonious world full of energy. Whimsical narratives are told by horses, octopus and also through female figures. Infinite Roots features multi-medium pieces including paintings, drawings and hand-cut paper. The intricate detail involved with her floral creations astounds me. Catch the exhibit at New York’s Jonathan LeVine Gallery until February 13.
I was immediately taken with the work of California artist Zack Paul. Especially the images created on various bits of driftwood and found natural objects. The most perfect backdrop to his clean, geometric images.
