SIXTY Listens: Alvvays “Marry Me, Archie”

Bringing a blurred nostalgic sound to California beach pop, Alvvays—out of Toronto, as it turns out—does equally well pairing its songs with vintage visuals.

SIXTY Eats: Miss Lily’s

There are few establishments in lower Manhattan as dynamic as Miss Lily’s. Between the Jamaican restaurant filled with statuesque hostesses, Melvin’s (its breezy daytime juicery next door), and Radio Lily (their Internet radio station), they’ve created something of a mini New York City empire, a tiny conglomerate holding court...

Celebrating the Irrational with Artist Zeren Badar

Tongue planted firmly in cheek, Turkish-born New York-based artist Zeren Badar recreates classical work with a pop-worthy irreverence.

Rae Morris “Do You Even Know?”

The beautifully affected, hyper-stylized video for Rae Morris’ “Do You Even Know?” brings to mind the fashionably awkward (though less ’80s gauche) posturing of Guy Bourdin. Directed by Nadia Marquard Otzen, previously responsible for Niki and the Dove’s excellent video for “Tomorrow,” the shoot conveys the paralyzing discomfort of being...

SIXTY Eats: Monkey Bar

What does one do when they tire of the charming tin ceilings and worn wooden floors that have become so ubiquitous in the New York downtown and Brooklyn dining scenes? You look to the past, of course, and head uptown, where tablecloths are still white, the brass is gleaming,...
