Vegetables & Vegetable Soup

Thanks to everyone who came down to Songkla this past Saturday to support us and our good friends at Close to Modern at the Vegetables Compilation CD release party. If you haven't got your hands on a CD yet, it's not too late. You can buy the CD or download the MP3 here. We are also still selling the CD here for $12 and special edition Songkla Vegetables T-shirt with CD for $35. Also the good looking guys of KarmaPolice released the Vegetable Soup Mix in support of the delicious beats that Dominic Pierce, NinetyNine, Dale Evans & the others that were involved in the compilation served up. Looks like you could use some more vitamins.

&ersand 2: A Collective Art Exhibition



If you guys and gals are looking for something fun & cool to do this week, come check out an art exhibition that some friends of Songkla are hosting at Untitled Art Society Main Gallery. The exhibition runs August 5th & 6th, with the Reception Party on the 7th.

&ampersand is a collaborative art exhibition, where each collaborator brings a different skill, practice and perspective. Collaborations are a unique experience where inspiration, motivation, and new perspectives can influence works created. The beauty of each work comes from how new ideas emerge, as part of the collaborations, where it would not have otherwise happened. It is never a perfect process. As you work off each other, you start discovering your own strengths and weaknesses. Either working harmoniously or clashing ideas, by the end of it, you never know how it’s going to turn out. There are 20+ collaborative works between 40+ artists and designers. This is round 2 of &ampersand. Enjoy.

Another Custom Leather







We've been getting a lot of interest in our custom work, as we may be the only ones in town doing this kind of thing. The latest one belongs to Dr. Farshad. Having shopped around the world, and being decked out in the best in mens contemporary labels, he had a good idea of what he wanted in a leather jacket. After a few design ideas, we've come up with something that he's really happy with.
