On this Music Monday we’re going to mix it up a tad and feature Mr. Robbie Williams and his latest venture, high street meets Savile Row menswear line, Farrell. While many of you in the U.S. may not be familiar with him, Rob is one of the most successful pop singers outside of the U.S. and has ridiculously good style. I’ve been known to be a pretty big fan and when I heard he was launching a clothing line (and at my favorite department store, Selfridges, no less), I had to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find out, like myself, he was inspired by and named his line after his grandfather. While strictly a menswear line currently, the pieces are taken from WWI military looks and some of Rob’s favorite vintage pieces. You can check out the video on GQ for the full scoop and click here to check out the collection for yourself.
Oh, and in the spirit of Music Monday, below you can have a listen to my all-time favorite Robbie Williams song, Angels. Enjoy.
In the studio today we were listening to WAMC‘s (the Northeast’s NPR station) Afropop program discussing the dynamic music scene in Tanzania and Zanzibar. One of the artist’s featured was X Plastaz and their song “Msimu kwa Msimu”. While this was released a few years ago, it was new to us (and i’m assuming new to you too). I have no idea what they’re saying but I highly recommend hitting play and cranking it up.
It’s been a crazy busy week between filling orders for my new, Garrison Clutches (which I’ll talk more about in an upcoming post), getting started on an awesome project with an uber-talented new client and planning a biz+pleasure trip back to California (yay!!!) With that said, we’re just going to enjoy a little Music Monday with some funk/rock/electro beats straight out of the UK from my new favorite group, Fujiya & Miyagi. Enjoy and hope you’re having a great start to your week!
