WATCH: Sanuk Follows Swell-Seeking Rocker Donavon Frankenreiter on Mustache Madness Tour

By Staff on July 15, 2014

 

 

The musician and pro-surfer Donavon Frankenreiter—known for the sizable stache blanketing his top lip—has been in Japan lately, touring with the footwear brand, Sanuk, while he rocks out, hangs with the locals, and does a little surf-shop snooping. The shoe company—born from the mind of surfer Jeff Kelley back in the ‘90s—has partnered with a number of outreach programs and charities around the globe. One of the brand’s “ambassadors” or sponsors, Frankenreiter’s eccentric style is palpable throughout the colorful video, as well as his and Sanuk’s shared love for surfing. The video’s blending of surf with rock and roll hints at their likenesses, reminding us of their mutual beginnings as the rebel’s hobby.

Witness Donavon’s journey above.

Of Age On The Champagne Coast: A Conversation with Gia Coppola and Dev Hynes

Of Age On The Champagne Coast: A Conversation with Gia Coppola and Dev Hynes

 

Our reputations will precede us. It doesn’t matter the person, or whether one’s impression of her was formed in the context of a rumor or a fleeting glance. Image is a requisite hurdle that we must clear before we can truly know each other; in some cases, this feat can be more of a decathlon. Such was the inevitable gauntlet laid out for the granddaughter of acetate legend Francis Ford Coppola and niece of director Sofia Coppola (not to mention cousin of Nicolas Cage and the Schwartzman boys). Nevertheless, the sweetly reticent Gia Coppola has managed to emerge seemingly out of midair, her buzzing debut feature, Palo Alto, in hand.

Little Dragon
Nabuma Rubberband - LOMA VISTA
FILTER Grade: 84%

By Kathy Iandoli on July 1, 2014

 

Little Dragon

Little Dragon are placed in a bit of a conundrum with their fourth studio album Nabuma Rubberband. When the band first emerged in 2007 with their self-titled debut, the electronic music movement wasn’t yet filtered, funneled and repackaged as EDM. Nabuma finds them looking to expand by experimenting with various styles—from the bossa nova undertones of opener “Mirror” to the zippy electro-guitar licks of “Klapp Klapp.” Things smooth out toward the middle but suffer from over-diversification, with “Pretty Girls’” ’80s synth vibe giving way to trance-y trip-hoppy cuts like “Underbart” and “Cat Rider” that ultimately transform into electro-pop in “Paris.” The title track marks a movement to...

Peter Matthew Bauer
Liberation! - MEXICAN SUMMER
FILTER Grade: 82%

By Sarabeth Oppliger on July 1, 2014

 

Peter Matthew Bauer

Much like the rugged, yet refined quality he brought to The Walkmen, Peter Matthew Bauer’s debut solo album has that sort of grit you want to plunge your hands into. Brushed drums and colorful spreads of reverb paint Liberation!, modestly complimenting trills of Petty-esque vocals. The lyricism, according to Bauer, aims to confront that paradox of finding light within seemingly endless darkness. While the album spawned from Bauer’s Hinduism and his childhood growing up in various ashrams, the spiritual influence on Liberation! is still rather light. A dash of otherworldly sounds give the otherwise good album that extra oomph on tracks like “Istanbul Field” and “Philadelphia Raga,” but the...
