In zoo news, had to pass on this amazing video we are obsessed with from our buds Ford & Lopatin and their jam "World Of Regret". Dan and Joel's faces are roll-on-the-floor priceless, and makes ya want to light a sandwich and tuck a napkin in the neck. e.n.j.o.y. and congrats to the release of the gnu album Channel Pressure tomorrow!

06/02: Little Paris Bitz

FRIENDS.

Hope this finds you well-wanted to share some lil' bitz of a recent jaunt to ol' Paris. No comment for the owl eyed beauty and inspiration vibes that city instills. Sweet, sweet daze spent with buds, comic book shops, and strolls-but the best times were simply on a window sill looking out to a storybook sea of rooftops overlooking the Marais with a big bottle of red: gluggin' + reflectin'. A few notable songs that went well with the landscape after the jumpage....

Looks like was officially Turquoise Wisdom week-which is no better week for us to see the golden jams are getting out there sweetly to the masses. Big congrats to ZC as another rad mix hits the netz hosted by our dear buds at Aquarium Drunkard called "Heavy Summer Nights", which I had the pleasure of designin'/scribblin' some fun for the cover art.

Click HERE to jump to the action which includes some klassic Cowie favorites (including Mike Harrison which makes me fall face down on the floor every time) -perfect to put the feet up under the stars with a nice Pimms Cup.

05/09: Turquoise Wisdom's Dj Set From FF Gigger

Hi Dudes,

I dj'd the FLEET FOXES show at the Palladium in Los Angeles last night and Robin told me there were twitterererers asking him for a setlist. I never plan dj sets... usually just pull records feeling right for the occasion and make it all up on the fly-- sooooooo, I don't know my setlist- but was stoked people were asking him (and me-- from stage, no less!) about songs jammed, so I decided to mix live for you all at my house from the stack I brought to the show before the records get filed back on my shelves.

Alright. Here it is-totally live & sloppy with tracklist and many shout-outs below. Big thanks to Rotter and Friends for hosting this mix + totally take a look around this site while you're here for more TW mixes/tributes including GENE CLARK, JOHN MARTYN, and of course the t-shirts Jess has illustrated of tons of my all-time favorite singers/bands. Check out more music HERE at Dublab.

All yours,
ZC/TW

Gosh I know, we have been bad with spreading the wisdom the past 2 weeks. Between finishing the Summer collection (woah get stoked) and working on some special projects-it's been bonkers. If ever looking to see what's cooking daily with R + F and to hear some jams we are currently crying to-follow the tweetin' HERE. THAT said, wanted to share a recent piece I worked on of the great Nina Simone done in wood burn + water color commisioned for the office of Search Party in NYC (in collaboration with Nightwood). Stay tuned-we really do have so much fun stuff to share-back in the zone. For now, check out Nina covering Randy Newman's "Baltimore" and take it eeeeeasy.

Speaketh soon soldiers.

FRIENDS!

A big Happy Record Store Day to you-please go and support a local record shop if you can on this fine afternoon. 'Tis a big day of exclusive pieces, diggin', and celebrating the art of finding love of all kinds. We here at R + F want to thank and salute our stockists Ameoba (LA), Other Music ( NYC), and AKA (Philly). To celebrate the fun, we have repressed our long lost beloved "Thanks Neil (Young)" tee which is available at Aka in philly-get to it!

Hope this finds you well. Wanted to share this illustration I contributed of Iranian artist Shirin Neshat to the great DOSSIER magazine, whose Spring issue just got released this week! Big hugs of gratitude to Skye, Erin, and Alec over there and do pick up a copy if you can-this mag is always a fine whopper of a read. Stoked to put this new B. Callahan record on, flicker a book light, and get in the zone on this rainy afternoon...
