ACL Endorses | Three New Things

Jan 20th, 2009 | Categories: ACL Endorses, Music, Style | by Michael Williams

ACL Endorses is a chance for me share recent discoveries that I think are worth a closer look.

The Selvedge Yard

The fashion insider behind TSY has great taste and a good eye for images. The site covers everything from denim, to design, to art, and tends to lean toward the classics. Good stuff like James Dean in his Jack Purcells pictured below.



The Barstool Romantic

A newish blog under the same premise as sites like The Impossible Cool, JJJJound and my own The Material Review. It’s all about inspiration people. So The Barstool Romantic lays down everything from an old school Bronco (near and dear, near and dear), to classic motorcycles. And this is one blog that isn’t afraid to include a nice looking lady from time to time. Not to mention, TBR has good taste in music.



Dan Auerbach // Keep it Hid

I had a chance to preview the solo debut of Black Keys’ guitarist Dan Auerbach’s album Keep it Hid (due out February 10th, 2009) and it is excellent. Fully ACL endorsed with two preview tracks below.

    Can’t agree more. The Selvedge Yard and Barstool Romantic have been my goto as of late. Fantastic work.

    A post in honor of our own Barack would be appreciated on such an historic day…

    I figured you’d be a Black Keys/Auerbach fan… it’s those NE Ohio roots.

    I’ve been a fan of TheSelvedgeYard since day 1. It’s on my blog roll and I check it every day, just like I check ACL. Thanks for showing TSY some love.

    Great image of James Dean, that guy could look relaxed wearing absolutely anything. Good work by The Barstool Romantic (newly added to my blogroll) too for bringing us pictures to brighten our day – I will be returning…
