United Kingdom! You can buy L-Vis 1990′s Neon Dreams LP today pon the iTunes. France can get busy too. It’s groovy and recommended, not just because it features boardwork from our own Nick Hook of Cubic Zirconia (as well as Para One and of course L-Vis himself). Try before you buy? Listen to the stream at Fact Magazine. And don’t forget Cubic Zirconia’s album is out now too.
After the jump, peep some Neon Dreams studio sessions courtesy of Fader TV. Read More

Every single piece of Fool’s Gold artwork – each individual record sleeve, flyer, logo, shirt, etc – has sprung direct from the mind of our inimitable art director Dust La Rock. He’s a connoisseur! So it’s no surprise that Dust’s unique sense of taste extends beyond his own work to that of his friends and peers. Knowing that, we put together the Fool’s Gold Artist Series – a collection of limited-edition projects curated by Dust, featuring newly commissioned graphics by some of his own personal favorites.
The series launches with t-shirts and prints by Chicago’s Cody Hudson and BK’s own JK5. Come through this Thursday (8/4) as we host a special artists reception at the FG store, 536 Metropolitan, from 7-9pm. And check the guys sporting their respective tees after the jump. Read More

These Pijama cases are exclusive to the FG retail superstore 536 Metropolitan, come through and feel up on ‘em while they last. Read More
