Alaska Gets More Shine

Summer has long gone here in Alaska and Old Man winter is creeping upon us. On the plus side, some Alaska expats are bursting onto the national scene. The Lives of the Famous Men made an appearance on the Jimmy Kimmel show.

Surprisingly to me, Kanye West posted Portugal the Man's latest video "Do You" on his blog.

Both bands have relocated to Portland, but still keep close ties to Alaska. [and yes, the other Play blog did mention these videos already, so in way this is a repost, but screw copy+paste blog etiquette..support your (kind of) local scene]

Mick Boogie x Peter Bjorn and John

Mick Boogie / Peter Bjorn & John - Stay This Way (Remix) from Myk Dawg on Vimeo.

I tend to shy away from recommending mixtapes because most of them become obsolete way too quick, but in this case I'll make an exception. This one comes from Mick Boogie, and as he says its more of a "curated remix project." It remixes Peter Bjorn & John's "Living Thing" album, and makes it really fresh. You can download over here.

Even though this clock is slightly too high for my budget, I still think its a steal for the price. Handmade, found on etsy. Plus, its just freaking cool.

Light In The Attic

Light In The Attic is an indie record label based out of Seattle. Funk, old soul, RnB, etc. Quality Releases. For a summer project, they sent 4 employees across the West Coast to 50 record stores to deliver the goods. Yes, it was work, but what an awesome road trip. There are six episodes, and in the video above they visit the record plant where their records are made.

My friend Encyclopedia Brown compiled some links to some of DJ AM's mixes, along with links to DJs who knew him better. Check it over here.

LA's Glenjamn has over one hundred short videos that capture how great DJ AM was on the ones and two's. Video Archive. (Not everything will be AM, but its the easiest way to see most of the vids featuring him)

His other homie, Thee Mike B, will be digging through his archives to give you some killer mixes, so check out his blog from time to time.

Plus, the dude had a killer shoe game. Jaw-Dropping.

If you're looking for an article, then the Village Voice has you covered.
