total eclipse of the charts


total eclipse of the charts

Spring is finally sprung in Montreal – hopefully for real this time – and I’ve been doing the usual seasonal overhaul of scissoring all my jeans into cutoffs and recklessly cutting my own hair. I also caught a super rad show on the weekend w/ TO pals Get Out, Einar Jullum, and Loosestrife: all totally killer and worthy of your ears if you are searching for some new summery jams. If you have fave local summertime tunes from your city, send ’em my way – I’m on the hunt..

till next week,
