Style Icon: Janis Joplin



   Janis Joplin was rock 'n' roll. Her smooth, husky growl made the world fall in love with her. She sang hard and partied harder, and her style reflected it. She lived in Bohemia staple pieces, dawning stacked beaded necklaces, flowing silk blouses, the occasional feather boa, and the oh-so-messy hair. She left us way too soon, taking a little piece of our hearts along with her.

Music Monday - Highasakite



     Allow me to introduce you to Norwegian five-piece Highasakite. The band has a dream-pop vibe mixed with flavors of 60s folk, light synths, and shimmery pop. Their sound oozes with classic Norwegian folk influences. Led by the rich and dreamy vocals of Ingrid Helene H√•vik, the band mixes moody and emotional lyrical stories with a soothing yet bright folk-y sound. They released their debut album, All That Floats Will Rain, in 2012. In 2013, they released their second LP, In and Out of Weeks. Their latest album, Silent Treatment, is available now.
