welcome

 to the colorful journal of Marissa Berrini, creative director, artist and curator living in Los Angeles.

This blog serves to celebrate tiny victories, inspiration for those times you're stuck in a rut and bring together a community that wants more than a perfectly curated feed of eye candy. Sometimes you just got to throw it out there and see where it goes!

Wednesday’s Spotify Featured Playlist: Purity Ring

Purity Ring @ the El Rey Los Angeles

In honor of Purity Ring playing at the El Rey this coming Thursday, we dedicated this Wednesday's Spotify featured playlist to you PURITY RING. The sold out show is part of Goldenvoice's "LOCALCHELLA", a nice little break before their next appearance at the second week of Coachella. Sam and I decided this was a must for our concert list, in addition to Bat for Lashes who are performing at the end of the month. Purity Ring's recent album, SHRINES, has been on repeat for me ever since seeing them at FYF Fest last year.  Not sure if it's just me but the band members slightly remind me of Portlandia characters (put a bird on it?). Regardless, their music is hypnotic, ethereal and a tad dark (check out lyrics to Belispeak here). So tomorrow if you are lucky to score tickets, be sure to tweet us!
