Three Olives Vodka - Sugar Daddies

The three videos in the TV Campaign thus far, which have been available here since March, are more like any comedic cartoon series I would watch online than a series of advertisements.  They remind me of the cartoons I thought were funny when I was little, even though I didn’t really understand the topics they were talking about until I was older.  The lovely illustrations by Ant Blades and the interesting adaptations of the classic “Three guys walk into a bar…” jokes are a perfect match.

Bravo Three Olives.  


[new] ty segall - "you make the sun fry"

my favorite california garage rock all star, ty segall, would never hang up his thrashing shoes (i hope) - but just because he still loves to jump around on stage in a jean jacket and play gg allin covers doesn't mean he can't be a singer-songwriter too (or something like that). he has, after all, admitted that his upcoming album Goodbye Bread (out June 21 via drag city) will be more "thoughtful." well that's pretty cute, ty - and so is that album cover. check out one of the songs from the upcoming album below:

[listen] Unreleased Tracks from The Weeknd

Some unheard tracks from the obscure post-R&B artist The Weeknd have surfaced online. These songs don't fall far from the tree of the highly-acclaimed debut mixtape, House Of Balloons, available for free download here. This music is dark and sexy — perfect for a humid summer night in the backseat. Stream them below:

Pictureplane-Real is a Feeling(video)

Appropriately named after his epic dance parties held at Rhinoceropolis, his home in Denver, Real is a Feeling, in its literal expression, sums up everything that Egedy stands for. Being a genuine person, or being real rather, is a rarity these days. I know everyone has posted this already but it dropped recently (via Blogs Westword). The new album Thee Physical, will be released on July 19th through Lovepump United. Directed by the imaginative Sterling Crispin, this video is pretty out there, and i'd have it no other way.

THIS is New Orleans (pt.2)

On my way to L.A. I have found myself in a small mountain village in New Mexico missing New Orleans. Then I stumbled upon this video, and I feel warm and fuzzy inside again. Ladies and gentlemen... THIS is New Orleans! pt. 2!! I introduce to you some fresh bounce this evening shot at the Walmart on Tchoupitoulas!

Lots of love,
