I love the idea of a family band. Peaking Lights is a new post-dub band out of Madison, WI. The group consists of married couple Indra Dunis and Aaron Coyes creating dub rhythms with dreamy female vocals. Their new album "936" has been on repeat in my house as of late. Maybe it's me wanting warm weather to soon come...I guess this album will have to do. (Listen to some tracks on Altered Zones and Gorilla vs Bear)

Sorry, I've been slacking on the posting. Here's a collection of videos of The Gonz as skater, artist, and all around weirdo. There's old skate footage from Video Days and Real's Nonfiction plus some weird Gonz art videos. The music videos are of Jason Schwartzman's band Coconut Records which used Mark Gonzales footage while the second video was directed by Mark. Enjoy.

Regulators, Mount UP! That was one of my favorite jams from back in the day. It'll always bring back great memories. 213 will regulate!

Would love to get a copy of this book, "The Sid Vicious Family Album". I had no idea this book even existed. I guess it was put out by his mom and a way for her to cash in on her son.
Download the new single from Shabazz Palaces "an echo from the hosts that profess infinitum" here. It's Butterfly from Digable Planets new avant rap project. Can't wait for the new album, Black Up, on Sub Pop. (via Gorilla vs Bear)

Aperture Photography And Variety Store in the Tremont area of Cleveland is a new vintage camera shop. They carry tons of old polaroids plus are one of the few stores to carry the Impossible Project's reissued Polaroid film. Great addition to Cleveland's arts scene. (via Selectism)
Freedom rock reigns supreme on his new album, "Smoke Ring For My Halo", NPR is streaming it here.  And then buy it cause the dude's the truth. (via NPR)
This one's for the ladies. Rodarte x Opening Ceremony's Roy Orbison sunglasses take a classic wayfarer frame and wrap it in old lady floral fabric. Amazing. (via Opening Ceremony)

The Fish. (via Ralphie)
For Opening Ceremony's Spring/Summer 2011 line, they took inspiration from the sands and silhouettes of Morocco. The men's collection is filled with gauzy fabrics and fantastic prints.  Luckily, they decided to use the tribal and cork prints from their collection to make some ties.  This is the perfect way to subtly inject some color and pattern to your spring wardrobe.
