Paste Magazine: Style Record

For the country-cum-punk singer Nikki Lane, every outfit, like every song, has a story—from the vintage swimsuits she’s rocked with cowboy boots on-stage, to the ‘40s satin motorcycle jacket she throws over everything that will fit into her tour bag.

For her set this June at Mercury Lounge in downtown Manhattan, Nikki wore a long, fringe skirt over black hot pants, and a black tee emblazoned with the US flag, her guitar slung over her shoulder, hanging at her hip.

Time Magazine Premieres "Good and Ready"

The song is taken from his upcoming album The Shipwreck From The Shore

Anthony D’Amato’s new record The Shipwreck From The Shore isn’t out till Sept. 2, but somebody has already asked him to play the song “Good and Ready” — officially premiering here at TIME — at a wedding.

“I was kind of confused when I got that request,” he says. “This song has the phrase ‘let me die’ like a dozen times in it.”
