anchor & hope (+ a new mix)

February 5, 2011

. . . . . . . . . . . . .

thinking about a sunday lunch at anchor & hope recently with friends charlotte & matt. the food and the entire experience was, as the locals might say, bloody brill.

also falling under the category of bloody brill:
+ our legacy lookbook (as always, so damn good – the colors & tones are amazing)
+ a video of the good people at vinegar hill house, one of my favorite brooklyn restaurants (how i miss this place) (thanks, michael)
+ i can buy bath ales online! and have them delivered to my flat! i love it.
+ railroad cafe in hackney, one of my new favorite spots in london

i will be away from this space next week … but before i go, i wanted to share a new mix with you all. a short playlist for a short month – it’s all stuff i’m listening to on repeat these days. you can listen to it HERE.

track list:
+ truth (alexander)
+ taken too young (the tough alliance vs. taken by trees)
+ still sound (toro y moi)
+ badaboom (tapes ‘n tapes)
+ helplessness blues (fleet foxes)
+ hamilton road (ducktails)
+ a room where your paintings hang (lost in the trees)
+ the wilhelm scream (james blake)

enjoy! and cheers.

    Oh I love your mixes. And now feel the need to recreate what looks like a gorgeous lentil soup up top so I can enjoy the total listen/taste fantasma. Enjoy the week of adventuring…looking forward to the yield.

    And that first photo – I want to live in it.

    Thank you for the music. Was a happy afternoon moment to listen to it on my balcony. Hurrah for sunny winter afternoons and warming windows around the balcony.

    Pretty pictures.

    great photos, as always
    and thank you for the mix! i’ve been in a little music rut lately, it’ll be nice to have some new songs to listen to.

    Terrific photos. Have you gone to Great Queen Street yet? Just as delicious, and a bit easier to get to (for me, at least).

    Love the photos and the warm tones.
    Thanks for the mix.

    bath ale delivery?? jealous!

    and as for the mix…..truth by alexander has been on constant repeat for days. you’re my hero for introducing me to it! i didn’t realize that edward sharpe’s lead man was venturing solo. fantastic stuff.
