We celebrated one of our favorite days of the year, Record Store Day, with our favorite record store (duh), Origami Vinyl in Los Angeles' eastside neighborhood of Echo Park. I can say with no hesitation that Origami set the bar for Record Store Day in Los Angeles some years back, and continued their winning streak in 2014. The thing we love about Record Store Day at Origami, is it is an ALL day hang with DJs, bands, and rad people. KCRW's Anne Litt, Kat Corbett from KROQ, and Rodrigo Amarante of Little Joy were among a few who kept the vinyl vibes high with DJ sets throughout the day. GOOD TIMES all around!
Who wants to read about products when you can just watch and listen! All you ever wanted to know about the brilliance of the eskuché Control v2 headphone, narrated by a real smooth cat, and featuring the track "It All Works All the Time," by Los Angeles based indoe dance punk duo De Lux. Special thanks to De Lux and our friends over at Innovative Leisure Records for this amazing track. Look out for De Lux's full length coming out this April on Innovative leisure. We couldn't agree more with KCRW and The Huffington Post in saying that these boys are ones to watch in 2014.

We paid our respects to Adam Yauch aka MCA yesterday at the park named after the prolific MC from the Beastie Boys in Brooklyn Heights NYC. Amazing to see the greatest city in the world celebrate one of the greatest artist of our generation. A pair of Control v2 BLU headphones were left as a token of our appreciation for what he contributed to our culture. Or maybe a FREE gift for the next fan!
We made it , YEW! Complex Magazine sorted us in their Complex Tech guide as a "Best Over Ear Headphone for under $100. You can read first hand HERE. Select Apple stores and eskucheaudio.com are currentley stocking.
“The one thing I can't travel without is a good pair of headphones, but I still can't bring myself to drop $200 on a pair. Eskuche Control v2 headphones have all the quality, comfort and style of a high-end pair of headphones, but at a much more reasonable price. The retro styling keeps you hip while killing time at the airport or falling asleep on the plane, and the square, plush ear cups fit comfortably over your ears, so you can avoid the dreaded earring poke.” -- Amanda, Interactive Producer
Our 2013 Holiday Look Book for the Control v2 is inspired by our passion for authentic, Classic Design and California living!

One of our favorite labels for reissues is Light in the Attic Records. We love digging in the bins for hours too, but sometimes you time is of the essence, and what's wrong with a nice, fresh, reissue? Absolutely nothing! We just picked up this Betty Davis album, "They Say I'm Different," which is amzing. Here is a little excerpt from Light in the Attic's website on Betty.
"One can hardly imagine the genre-busting, culture-crossing musical magic of Outkast, Prince, Erykah Badu, Rick James, The Roots, or even the early Red Hot Chili Peppers without the influence of R&B pioneer Betty Davis. Her style of raw and revelatory punk-funk defies any notions that women can’t be visionaries in the worlds of rock and pop. In recent years, rappers from Ice Cube to Talib Kweli to Ludacris have rhymed over her intensely strong but sensual music."
