polaroids: FYF Fest 2015


The annual Los Angeles-based FYF Fest was humble in size, sweet and yet progressively cool -- like Coachella's little sister that borrowed its clothes. We got to spend the day hopping to shows, eating colored popsicles, and thanking the universe we'd worn proper shoes. All the while getting to hang with the bands that make the heat worth it. Between finding abandoned kitchen sinks with Toro y Moi or snapping shots next to Morrissey's "Vegan" crew vans with Neon Indian — Fuck Yeah Fest didn't disappoint. // photos + words by Claire McKinzie

Check out more of Claire's shots + recap from FYF — including Lower Dens, HEALTH, Mac Demarco, DJ Dodger Stadium, Ed Droste oF Grizzly Bear, and more — after the jump…

premiere: listen to Bouquet’s lovely debut EP In A Dream


California "kaleidoscopic pop" duo Bouquet follow up one of the most dreamily beautiful tracks of the year with their haunting debut EP, In A Dream. From the warm and gently woozy opening track, to the jaunty/slightly creepy longing of "Come To Your House", the gorgeous, bittersweet melancholy of "Over the Mountains", and the lilting, romantic dream pop perfection of "Falling", it's a lean and lovely record that lulls, soothes, and renews in just under 20 minutes. In A Dream is out next week on limited 10" via Ulrike/Folktale Records. Listen:

Bouquet will play a record release show in Eagle Rock this weekend, followed by a handful of west coast dates in April; check those after the jump...
