is an American rock band from Seattle, Washington. The two-piece is comprised of Shane Lance and Emerson Shotwell. At its core, Novel Nature's music features Lance's dynamic vocals and soaring melodies, and Shotwell's powerful, swaying rhythms - combining to create a sound that's unique, and full of arena-ready anthems.
In short, they sound great and you need to listen to them.
I was introduced to the band when a friend was collecting some tunes for her road trip playlist, and have been playing their EP Nylon Nation
ever since. And with the power of the interwebs, you can stream it online via Soundcloud.
Also check out Novel Nature’s video for 1937
which was filmed on an iPhone!
Give Novel Nature the thumbs-up on their Facebook
A Sun & Moon Presentation
Italian producer Go Dugong released Was in December and S&M posted it with vigor due to the respectable quality of Go Dugong's production work. My fondness of Was from the LebensStrasse Records artist kept me pressing play, so when I found out that five of his producer friends remixed the Was EP; I had to post it. Plus the sun is shining on us here in the North Hemisphere and Was is a perfect chillwave, glitch hop and lofi experience that's great to get us ready for spring.

NY streetwear doyens Mishka
, and NY-based street artist L'Amour Supreme,
have grabbed beloved kids (and adults) cartoon character Spongebob Squarepants by the nuts and given him a twisted makeover. The Holiday 2013 capsule collection features a couple of tees and deck, all emblazoned with Spongebob in all of his newly demented glory. Think Spongebob crossed with Robert Carlysle towards the end of 28 Weeks Later
. We'd advise this gear probably stays away from your kids, just in case. Unless of course your kids dig their fav characters turning into horror fodder.
