inspiration music plaza

Sometimes, when it's slow at the store, we like to scour the web for new music and the latest releases. Today, we've had one dropped in our laps from Revolver's very own Johan. He goes by the moniker PLAzA on the new Viare EP compilation on Voltaire Records.

Nothing can be more satisfying than spending hours digging in crates till the tips of our fingers turn dusty black. 45's, 10", 12" and those hard-to-find out of print titles that you can't believe you spent half your paycheck on because you just "had to have it."

Owner Cool Chris and his...

You realize how interconnected things can be, how your chance meeting in that place with that person has a greater significance, that you've known the same people, that you've drawn upon the same influences and shared the same subcultural secrets, that you and they are part of the same forever tangled web, the same karass, if you will....

You Must Create

2012 English Inspiration menswear music sneakers

Started in 1995, You Must Create is an English label with two eponymous shops in London. Drawing on diverse sources of inspiration, YMC creates beautiful and bold clothing for the chic and cheeky set. Their designs are clean, a bit vintage inspired, a bit workwear inspired, a bit outdoorsy, and decidedly fun. YMC's designer, Jody Fraser, answered a few questions for Revolver about his processes and inspirations, past and current.    In your "About" section on the website, you've included the sentence "YMC were and will always be defined as much by what they are against as what they are for." This...
