Solid Gold "Bible Thumper"

In my eternal quest to find new music, I recently stumbled across Solid Gold. They are an up-and-coming indie-dance group from Minneanapolis. I recommend given them a listen if you dig bands such as Cut Copy, Black Ghosts, or Faunts. Here's a video for their song "Bible Thumper" off of their new Bodies of Water (not the band) record.

Monocle X Comme de Garcons "Hinoki"

I just picked up a bottle of the Comme de Garcons men's cologne "Hinoki" that was produced exclusively for Monocle. The scent is woodsy, and quite distinct. The more I smell it, the more I like it. It's a special edition cologne, and can only be purchased in a few locations. (I snagged mine at Colette). You can also get it at the Monocle website. 

Now I just need to decide whether I should snag one of those Porter bags...

Little Boots covers "Day n Nite" by Kid Cudi

I love "Day n Nite" by Kid Cudi. I can't wait for his first LP to drop. An artist name Little Boots, who I admit I know very little about, has just covered this great track. It's a great bedroom recording complete with sexy vocals, and great piano. Excellent!

Thanks Hypebeast for the tip.

Giro Lusso cycling gloves

I've been wanting to buy some leather vintage-looking cycling gloves for a while now. I really like the Rapha Grand Tour gloves, but they run a large 160$. I just ran across these fancy new Giro Lusso gloves. These look to be exactly the style of glove I want, and they also only cost 65$. I definitely will be picking a pair of these up. Oh yeah, on a side note... my Castelli gloves started to tear after only 1 month. Watch out!
