Transmission NY Fashio Week Party

Generally speaking, we don’t give much consideration to New York Fashion Week over here at AudioFemme.  It’s not that we don’t love a good frock, but our budgets are more vintage (read: thrift store) than designer.  Even so, those designers often draw inspiration from rock stars and rebels, and it is not uncommon to see indie bands playing at fashion week events.  We only made it to one such party, and that was kind of by accident; our friends over at SubScene Style have been throwing amazing parties every week as part of their Transmission Thursday series at swanky multi-level space Hotel Chantelle.  Last week, that included a performance by NYC-based classic rock project Grand Electric and a fashion show featuring Religion Clothing UK, a label with an equally rockin’ aesthetic.

All that craziness reminded us that you can’t walk down the runway in silence.  So we thought we’d do something a little different for Loud & Tasteless this week and curate the best songs from this season’s catwalk playlists, while showicasing the clothes that these jams influenced.  Also, keep your eyes and ears peeled for future collaborations with Subscene Style and TransmissionNY!

Here’s a peak into the sounds of Grand Electric, whose musical inspirations herald from the Stones, to Otis and James Brown. “It’s an honest form of music”, quoted lead singer Tripp Callan at the event last week. Indeed–sometimes getting back to one’s roots is as novel as inventing a new genre. Listen to “Faking It” here, via Soundcloud:
