Albert Hammond Jr., The Strokes’ guitarist, designed the slick claret and bottle green suits Ryan Gosling wore in Crazy Stupid Love. How cool is that?
But in other more musically related news…
Albert Hammond Jr. and producer/engineer Gus Oberg host a tour of the Converse Rubber Tracks studio, kicking off with an introduction about the state-of-the-art studio that is open for artists to apply and record in at no cost. Throughout the short film, Hammond Jr. and Oberg share the details behind the artwork both inside and out and explain all the moving parts that make up the studio. This includes the state-of-the-art equipment supplied by Guitar Center and featured in the Guitar Center rehearsal space Studio A and Studio B, the various functions of the main lobby/event room, the exclusive Ocean Wave speakers located in the control room and the live recording room of Studio A itself.
Converse Rubber Tracks Live will continue this summer at the Music Hall of Williamsburg with headliner Action Bronson performing a free show for music fans. The show will also feature Converse Rubber Tracks recording artists Flatbush Zombies, Meyhem Lauren and Tanya Morgan selected by Bronson himself.
The super sexy Albert Hammond Jr. for Confederacy suits are available for pre-order now for $2,125 plus tax and any applicable shipping fees (and they do ship internationally).
