There’s something about Thanksgiving that always puts us in a sentimental mood. There’s a huge comfort in going back home, seeing old friends, and sharing a killer meal with the fam. Cue the nostalgic warm fuzzies, right? To get you in that homey spirit, we’ve rounded up a few songs that’ll have you boarding the plane home with a smile on you face. Add these tunes to the list of stuff you’re grateful for this year.
Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros’ “Home”
Alanis Morissette’s “Thank U”
The Maccabees’ “Grew Up At Midnight”
Johnny Flynn’s “The Water”
Don McLean’s “American Pie”
Which reminds us: take an extra slice of pie for dessert. You
If you’re anything like us, you’ve got earbuds in your ears all day every day, pumping everything from your early morning running playlist to your staying-late-after-work-to-get-this-project-done jams. But there are downsides to this techcessory. They hurt. They fall out. Or they get yanked out and tangled up and definitely screw up your crossbody-strap flow (serious problem). It’s time for an upgrade.
We partnered with Normal to bring you the sexiest new headphones on the market. They’re exclusive. They’re rose gold. And they’re custom. In fact, the pair you buy doesn’t even exist yet. Each set is fitted to your ears (and your ears only), 3D-printed in resin, then cast in 14K rose gold. Read: they won’t fall out; they

You know what we’re talking about—the kind of songs you always pick at karaoke. The ones you’re pretty sure no one does better than you. Yeah, those. We threw together an entire playlist’s worth. Obviously, they’re all from our favorite female artists, road-tested and guaranteed to make you feel like Superwoman. And yes, Robyn makes multiple appearances. We got you.
First things first: if you have not yet heard anything by GIVERS, you are probably living a sad-ish life. Secondly: if you’ve heard them and never seen them live, you’re missing out. They kick a live show’s ass for many reasons, one of which is thanks to Tiffany Lamson, the band’s main and only woman. We got a chance to chat with the magnetic vocalist/percussionist/ukelele-ist ahead of the band’s show tonight at Rough Trade in Brooklyn. Find out what she said about spandex, Chinese medicine, and headbanging (She’s mastered it. Trust.).

Lafayette, Louisiana, born and raised! Now I live in New Orleans. Both are amazing, dense cultural places. NOLA has been a highly inspiring place to come back to
Now that it’s officially getting colder outside, the only thing that’s tearing us away from our warm beds in the morning is the prospect of getting dressed for the day. The sweaters, the layering, the accessories, the bags—the high of getting the perfect ensemble together is pretty much the best feeling ever.
