Street Appeal

The next Instagram phenomenon is the New York launch of Color Factory, the “collaborative interactive exhibit” that had an incredible run in San Francisco. Starting in August, SoHo will be filled with ombré balloons, custom color ice cream scoops, light-up dance floors, and a way to find your “secret color.” The roster of talent involved is phenomenal, including Gossamer favorite Molly Young.

One glaring absence on music streaming services has long been the Drag City catalog. Home to some of the smartest indie rock, folk and alt-country bands over the last 30 years, the label has finally struck a deal with Spotify, TIDAL, and Google Play to let the likes of Smog, Ty Segall, Bill Callahan and, our personal favorite, Silver Jews, be heard. The one exception? It seems Joanna Newsom, who has referred to Spotify as a “villainous cabal,” won’t be appearing on the newly public company’s platform anytime soon.

Despite continued hostility from governments around the world, study after study has shown CBD to be an efficient treatment for numerous conditions, especially epilepsy. DJ, model, activist, and filmmaker Chelsea Leyland is tackling all sides of the topic in a new documentary called Separating the Strains, the Kickstarter campaign for which launched earlier this week. (Leyland herself was diagnosed with epilepsy as a teen, though she's been seizure-free for over a year since weaning herself off prescribed meds and only using CBD oil for treatment.) She’s an inspiring advocate for the compound, and her film is worth supporting.
