insta daily: bad suns

Our Endless Playlist is back--and seeing as our music issue is on newsstands now, we’re all about celebrating our favorite new bands, tracks, and albums of summer 2014. Want to know who you’ll find in the playlist? Think NYLON forever faves like Metric, cover stars like Haim and Lana Del Rey, and band crush bands like California indie four-piece Bad Suns (who have just released their debut album). So whether you stream our ultimate pics for June while you’re at the pool, at the beach, or at your desk, our list of jams will keep you feeling like it’s summertime and the livin’s easy.


win this

Just in case you’ve been waiting since last year’s Phono del Sol Music Festival to catch some of your favorite musicians live on stage, we’ve got good news: This year’s fest is just around the corner (happening on July 12). Even better? We’ve got tickets to give away to see bands like Blackbird Blackbird, Thao Nguyen and The Get Down Stay Down, White Fence, and more! Not only are we giving away a pair of General Admission tickets to one lucky winner, but we’ve also got one pair of VIP passes up for grabs. Want to win? We thought so. All you have to do is tweet us @nylonmag with #phonodelsol + #NYLONDaily by 1 PM (EST) tomorrow for your chance to win.


culture club

Need some apartment inspiration, but don't want to spend your summer days inside on Pinterest? We feel you! That's why you should head out to one of our fave Mission District indie stores, Little Paper Planes, which is about to be the ultimate spot for hooking up both your place and your outfits, because they’re officially open seven days a week! Part-art gallery and part-store, this shop goes above and beyond the call of rad with items like their Insomniac’s Chronicle zine, ceramic vases, and awesome kitchen goodies. Yeah, we're thinking scooping up new stuff for your place is the ultimate way to celebrate the spot's new hours.


press play

It's not very hard to have an e-crush on freak folk artist EMA. With a music video that features clips by a Tumblr star like Molly Soda, and lyrics that reference the World Wide Web, Erika A. Anderson--AKA, EMA--is our digitally inspired girl crush. But, if you’re looking to check her out IRL, you can get it done at The Independent this Wednesday, where she’ll be performing with synthpop artist Mas Ysa and surf punk band Safeword.
