Shwood: The Stone Collection

by

Known best for their handcrafted wooden frames, Shwood is exploring new natural territories this season with the debut of the Stone Collection.

The materials used to create these shades harmoniously combine to achieve an aesthetic balance between rugged and refined, so if you’re as impressed with these as I am, you better hurry because numbers are limited.

Gig Review: Ta-ku in Sydney

by

Last Saturday, 9 March 2013, Sydney welcomed the arrival of the very talented beatsmith / DJ / producer Ta-ku.

In town for a sold-out show at GoodGod and an in store appearance of a collaboration tee between himself, For The Homies and Capsule Store, I can only hope that we (aka Sydney) made a good enough impression for him to return to our city in the near future.

Check out my review of both of his appearances at Capsule and GoodGod.

Capsule Sessions: Ta-ku

by

It’s all happening this Saturday in Sydney!!!
I know the Future Music Festival is on in Randwick but I have more exciting news!

The very talented Ta-ku is heading to Sydney to play a couple of shows and I highly recommend you attend at least one of them to see him perform live and finally (maybe) you’ll understand why his music inspires me so much.

See ya there! 🙂
