New Music: Asher Roth “Terry (Freestyle)”

Screen Shot 2017-10-02 at 22.36.58

Who knows what Asher Roth’s up to these days, but I kinda wish he’d release more music. With only his third offering of the year following “More or Less” and The Cool Kids-assisted “Wu Financial,” Asher makes a brief return to sprinkle some “free thoughts” over Action Bronson’s breezy “Terry” beat (word to The Alchemist). Lines like “I need some reassurance that industry is worth it / ‘Cause the inner me is nervous that this energy ain’t working / I know this shit ain’t perfect, I may be a different person / ‘Cause I can’t pretend I’m working with this worthlessness they worship” might provide some clues as to why we don’t hear from this guy near enough as we should.

Butter Goods Delivers an Authentically Retro Lookbook for Its Third Drop of 2017

Quality T-shirts are the backbone of every reputable streetwear label and for the upcoming season, Butter Goods delivers a bevy of distinctive offerings. The Australian skate imprint presents a handful of impactful graphics, ranging from King Kong and Garfield references to vivid, text-heavy pieces. Several tees and caps boast subtle embroidery of the brand’s logo, offering a restrained alternative to the striking prints. Photographs taken with Kodak film invokes the youthfulness of ’90s skate footage while the T-shirts’ vintage-inspired imagery and boxy fits further cement the brand’s backward-looking credibility.

The hoodies and trousers in the lookbook are currently up on Butter Goods’ webstore and you can expect the new tees and hats to follow soon. This new drop follows the release of the capsule collaboration produced in league with fellow Australian imprint Highs and Lows.
