Drew Barrymore’s Cute New Video

(Actresses Miranda Cosgrove and Chloe Moretz)

Our hearts broke when we saw this gorgeous new video for artist Bethany Cosentino, a.k.a. Best Coast directed by Drew Barrymore. The theme is a throwback 50’s vibe, with a wink to West Side Story which is really an epic wink to Romeo & Juliet — the feuding families with 2 star crossed lovers stuck in the middle. The video also brings to mind the infamous car race scene from Grease with its locations.

In this particular story, actresses Miranda Cosgrove and Chloe Moretz play the 2 chicks in the gang, and both are smokin’ hot. We especially love how their stylish hair maintains after a gang fight. See for yourself.

Desert Nights- Aug 24

This Wednesday, on August 24th is another loyal installment of our weekly party, Desert Nights, held in the Cactus Lounge at The Standard Hollywood. The evening is a gathering of 3 musicians who opt to unplug and provide a special acoustic set for our lucky hotel guests and friends. Here’s the lineup this week. 

(Half the Brother-Sister Duo of Lincoln and Cory Madley. )

Cory & Lincoln Madley are a brother-sister duo from the Black Hills of South Dakota. They started playing music together in the family band and, after moving to Venice Beach together, threw a weekend folk party in their garage where their friend could sit in. For a while, Lincoln was performing solo as Sunny Von Bülow and Cory was running a jewelry shop. Now, Lincoln writes their new songs on his guitar with Cory singing the thirds that give them their country sound. Their influences are owls, classic rock, and dancing.

In the Grace of The Rapture

Tonight, we join forces with Justine D. to celebrate a New York miracle: the return of The Rapture. Released September 6th on DFA Records, their new album sounds as magic and uplifting and beautiful as their first single “How Deep is your Love”. Enjoy the exclusive Standard Q&A and see you later tonight at the DFA & Throne of Blood Dance Party!

The Standard: While recording your album in Paris, you said it was going to be “mystical, magical”. Did it happen?

The Rapture: Yes.  For sure! This mystery cannot be conveyed with words. It can only be felt.  If you are in a deep slumber it will wake you. If you cannot be roused out of your deep sleep than no mystery other than that of your own lethargy will you ever experience.

Philippe Zdar of Cassius fame produced the new LP. He is probably one of the coolest guys on earth and a kind of magician himself. Was it fun working with him?

Yes, it was incredibly fun to work with Philippe.  We created a new style together.  We were born ready to create this new style. It is inimitable, so don’t even try.  You will hurt yourself if you try.  In short, Philippe is our brother.  If you fuck with him you will experience anguish and pain beyond your conception.
