BOSCO -PACER- from supadope on Vimeo.

It's been two years since BOSCO has released any new material since her last ep "Spectrum" and now she presents "Pacer". Pacer is a six-track conceptual album in collaboration with producer and chillwave Washed Out band member Dogbite. The album tells the journey from Atlanta to California in a 1978 Teal Pacer thats translated through soundcapes, ambient, textured vocals and melodic instrumentation. During this voyage the two will experience their fate through life, love, lust, and desire. Though Dog Bite produced majority of the EP, Ira G produced two tracks. Pacer includes Bosco flipbook with videos, exclusive baby video, and music.

track list-
king of the land

beauty & the stone

Regardez: Cavotress & Other Projects

Designer Julie Wheat is known about the city of Charleston and beyond as a rockabilly who stocks an insane archive of vintage clothing. I have had a few chance meetings with Wheat, who back in December 2010 help on the "Going Rogue" shoot as seen in issue 2 of VENT Magazine. But on Tuesday I had the pleasure to see first hand. We discussed our upcoming collaboration as well as her design aesthetics. Seated on her houndstooth couch that was the focal point of an expansive living room. Which could limelight as a sewing room or in this case showroom. We chatted about favorite designers, or at least i did. "There are so many designers out there but it's hard to choose a favorite when I haven't met many of them in person.  I am so new to the industry as a designer myself, I feel it's just not right for me to choose at this point in my career." said Wheat,After I spoke about my recent encounters with Vuitton Creative Director Marc Jacobs. Designers aside Wheat, implores that she is simply concerned with clothes!
 This became all to clear as we lumbered a few racks from the forest of racks in a storage room at her Mt.Pleasant home. Her love of fashion seemed to be with her from childhood says she in a vintage Gianni Versace polka dot sheath dress. Wheat's line of Bardot-esque of swimwear called Cavortress is made for the woman who cavorts. Like in that movie Blanket Bingo, not in a slutty way!

So since I am moving to NYC in 2 weeks I thought it would be a great idea to partner with some of my favorite locals. I pulled together a rack of pieces from Julie's Archives that will be on sale along side my own rack of rags and designer pieces. Rhett Lightfoot Boyd who stocks Cavortress will be hosting us and of course his shop will be open as well to outfit you. So between the three of us you have the chance to find the perfect thing. I will be selling items for the home, some art, clothing and loads of books and films. So please if you in the Charleston area make a trip to 69 Spring St at The Rogue Wave Surf Shop for the Tres Frais Summer Sale. This coming Saturday August 13, 2011 8am-6pm I will also be giving a special gift with every sale from my shop.

Rhett (Creator and Owner of Rogue Wave Surf Shop) is the epitome of surfer turned purveyor of a lifestyle brand. Adam Kimmel,for his first runway presentation presented the Surfer, but not the typical surfer, the modern surfer. This modern version of the classic archetype would not be caught in a pair off trunks off the beach but instead in a relaxed unstructured suit.

This idea is what drives Rhett to carry clothes and accessories that are both well crafted but have a honed look. Rogue Wave Surf Shop ( 69 Spring St Charleston,SC ) located in a quaint unassuming building might be overlooked if not for the rack of sun bleached vintage tees and longboard on the porch. Once you cross the door your plunged into a surfers heaven. Rhett Lightfoot Boyd Jr who is the perfect host offers up drinks, loads of knowledge about every item he stocks and interesting stories about the space which the store occupies.Discover the likes of Bunker Spreckels surfing's divine prince of decadence, or brands like Apolis, Billy Kirk and Riviera Club. I picked up the film "Sight Sound" starring Mikey Detemple who actually weeks ago came to Charleston to premiere the film in the shops backyard. I can't wait to watch it and the other film Rhett let me borrow from his personal library.I am sure it will be the perfect chaser to a summer which is nearly over.

 LeRoy Grannis and his legendary photographs will forever be burned in my mind. Especially when I think of the surf,surfers,and surfing. The late Lee McQueen used his image of a boy surfing in a black suit as the starting point for his Spring Summer 2008 Collection. I really regret not buying the shark head screenprinted tee back then but I have since made up for that.
