Avec Eric!

Been on a marathon of Avec Eric!

Beautifully shot with great food, wine, places and excursions! Love his easy humor and how he describes food, nature, life, spirituality with such grounded passion.

Anyway, there's something really really really special waiting at the Strand bookstore relating to...

Dali – artist, visionaire, food obsessed, awesome titler

Sounds on a lazy saturday morning

Checking both out in a week...
Elvis Perkins in Dearland

Chylde - Recently got their CD in the mail. Rough and dirty...


Spacemen 3 - eat, drink, smoke, read, sleep, etc etc etc – music to do everything to

Dead fucking Meadow

Sleepy Sun - Such an amazing band!

Assemble Head in Sunburst Sound - this is off their new record. Their last one Ekranoplan is one of our most played records. It's funny cos we never fully know the song names – always just pop it on, lie back and let it play all the way through... over and over and over and over... it's so good for the soul

Acid King


Warlocks - bobby and the old bassist!

Black Angels

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope everyone's eating and drinking well!

P.S. I'm far from a hardcore roots fan but a while back, I randomly ran into questlove while getting my morning coffee at Levain Bakery. I'm honestly not one for being starstruck but all I could say was "hi......" and proceeded to stare at him blankly for 5 seconds. Of course questlove was nice and said hi back and then promptly turned away to look at the cookie selection.

Lady with him: So we'll get one of each??
Questlove: (shakes his head slowly at her in disbelief) what?? no...........
(slow head shake then morphs into a slow "damn straight we're gonna be needing more than one of each cookie" head nod)

questlove... rockin the comb off my socks!
