Tavik goes to Greece! Fifty-Two Thursdays’ Founder and head blogging maven, Sarah Phillips, took a whirlwind vacation to the beautiful Grecian Island of Mykonos, bringing us along. She snapped some incredible photos featuring our Monika reversible top, Ali reversible bottom, and the ultimate cover-up, the Stella Maxi.
In the 1980s, Bob Mazer worked as a projectionist at a porn cinema. During his tenure he began photographing daily commuters in the London Underground, capturing candid snapshots of the capital’s vibrant demographic. Now in his late ’60s, Mazzer presents an expansive body of work in his first solo show titled “UNDERGROUND” at Howard Griffin Gallery. Upheld by humorous undertones, the images capture the social history of London rarely seen — archival photos of punks and skinheads are placed alongside that of commuters smoking cigarettes in carriages. Check out the exhibition recap here and head to our latest THROUGH THE LENS for a closer look at Mazzer’s work.

Larry Gus is the electronic project of Greek producer Panagiotis Melidis, and his newest album (Years Not Living) brought about an impressive approach to sampling. Melidis was able to develop an algorithm that would calculate all possible combinations of samples, categorized by tempo and key. He was left with about 200 possible songs, 10 of which made it to the album. This Thursday afternoon, listen to “With All Your Eyes Look” off of Years Not Living.

Santa Cruz Surfer and UFC wonderboy Luke Rockhold just returned from a tour across Europe making guest appearances in the best beaches & clubs from Ibiza to Berlin. He kept it America strong rocking our Americana Trunks, and it clearly worked wonders for him.
Obviously Luke and Miles had some mind-altering/life-changing experiences with the Ibiza locals. Here’s their “Ode to the Spanish Señorita”
“Have you ever seen a Spanish women prepare fish? I have and it’s glorious. The Spanish women makes eye contact and smile at you during conversation. She rarely wears her top at the beach and seems to have curves in all the right places. Her accent hints of Penelope Cruz in vanilla sky. The Spanish women don’t care of your name or what you do for a living. To her, you are “honey baby”. We have come to the conclusion that we will be growing old with a Spanish señorita…Or Romanian…It’s a coin flip.”

The Tavik team headed up to LA last weekend to check out the Basquiat x Komono collaboration event hosted by the Network Agency. The Seventh Letter HQ housed a unique capsule collection of six Komono watches, each one uniquely featuring a different detail of the late Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work, displayed alongside prints of the original pieces. If you have always been a fan of the pop culture artist, now is your chance to capitalize without having to sell your soul. The collection dropped on May 15th, so grab one today before they are gone forever.
Boards of Canada are a Scottish electronic duo, and the most prominent act of art collective Hexagon Sun. Their sound features long drawn out melodies and structure, accompanied by broken up, sporadic rhythm. Known for their instrumentation, the group has been said to avoid a purely analogue sound, and commonly mixes in more conventional instrumentation. This Thursday afternoon, listen to “Read for the Dead” off of their 2013 album Tomorrow’s Harvest.
The Tavik team headed down to Cabo for Surf Summit 17 this past week to link up with other industry leaders for a bit of sun, surf and some powerful presentations by guest speakers highlighting how they overcame personal struggles and accomplished success through surfing. We were also proud to be a support for Surfari hosted by Transworld Business, which taught beginner surfers how to conquer the waves. For more on the event, take a peek at the story here.

Sung by Bridgette Bardot and written by Serge Gainsbourg, “Contact”, upon its release, was considered extremely outlandish, and used abnormal instrumentation and vocal methods. Contemporary psychedelic group Wooden Shjips reinterpreted this 1968 retro-futuristic song over 40 years later, turning a 2 minute tune into an 8 minute jam. Listen to each version below on today’s Past and Present.
