EL-AY

The City of Angels is urban sprawl at its finest. Edgy and full of glam & glitz, Los Angeles is foodie and fashion heaven; not to mention a celebrity oasis! Everything about LA has style, even the unintended… You walk into a coffee shop, and it is a scene. A boutique? Polished. A local dive bar? Sure! But with that special hipster je ne sais quois! Truly, LA is made of design, decor and flair that is good to the last drop… It’s oozing off the streets and even the attitude and personality of the city exudes this exuberant and vivacious way of life. Maybe it’s the warm and sunny weather that contributes to the high energy and vibrancy– no matter what it is, LA is always on point!

On a recent trip down I spent most of my time in Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney; as well as a few cameo appearances in Santa Monica, Downtown & Silverlake . I took a few pictures of some cool looking spots, images that epitomize the LA esthetic… Here is a gallery of these snapshots, enjoy, xoxo SC

Without A Doubt

No Doubt released their new album today, Push & Shove. It is hellllla good! Pop, reggae, rock, dancehall, electro mish-mash deliciousness that’s danceable, fun, witty and rings of a new, evolved, yet timeless No Doubt!!!! I love love love how OC/LA they are from their amazing eclectic stylings to their funky and polished sound. Some of my favorite tracks on the CD include: Settle Down, One More Summer, Push & Shove, Gravity and Undone. Gwen Stefani’s  vocals are great, she has so many rad inflections and tones that make her an entertaining and dynamic singer, and she sounds absolutely beautiful on Undone. The rest of the bandmates, Tom Dumont, Tony Kanal and Adrian Young sound tight as ever with some funky basss playing going on accompanied by rad guitar rifts and rhythmic groovy drum beats ….

Always reflecting a radical personal style No Doubt is one of the more unique, tasty rock/pop/ska (and everything in between) bands in our contemporary scope of musical acts. With a prominent female lead and a steady rockin’ band, they always remain sharp. As well as musically talented, they all posses mad flair! I’ve posted some pics of the band together and individually… Now get out there and listen to Push & Shove while peeping Stoner Chíc !!!
