The Musical Stylings of Kristina Angelozzi
This designer even dresses some of the musicians she rocks out to.
Kristina’s BF’s band, J Roddy Walston & the Business.
Not only is Kristina Angelozzi’s main squeeze the drummer for the bluesy, rock band J Roddy Walston & the Business, but the creative force behind the Americana-inflected line Fischer has also outfitted a slew of her favorite up-and-comers like The Lumineers and The Mates of State. “Music and fashion are both these creative formats,” she says. “So it’s nice to dress likeminded people. It’s like, ‘Here’s what I do, and I respect what you do.’” And the very in-the-know maker was down to share a cherry-picked playlist just for us.
1) “Moonbeams” by Princeton: “Listening to this is like laying on the beach and wanting a margarita—but not quite caring enough to get up.”
2) “A Picture of Dorian Gray” by Television Personalities: “This song inspired me to read the book by Oscar Wilde, which inspired me to listen to the song some more.”
3) “Let’s Spend the Night Together” by the Rolling Stones: “When I drink enough to brave karaoke, this is my go-to.”
4) “Aiko-Aiko” by Jullie D: “From the compilation album Hot French Chicks in the Garage.”
5) “Thinking About You” by Radiohead: “My musical taste began and ended when I was 15. I still love this.”
6) “Girl Next Door” by Nervous Eaters: “Sappy-meets-sleazy in this late-seventies punk love song.”
7) “Talkin’ ‘Bout You” by The Animals: “Eric Burdon. Done.”
8) “Use Your Language” by J Roddy Walston and the Business: “Love this for the slide guitar and steam engine drums (that’s my boo!).”
9) “Slug” by The Ramones: “Sweaty, summery haze. Yeah…I don’t really believe it’s about a slug either.”
10) “The Birds Were Singing with All Their Might” by Love is All: “It kind of sounds like how a bird might feel flying.”
11) “Eviction Party” by Darlings: “Gotta rep the Brooklyn music. And who doesn’t love a little immature reckless abandon?”
12) “Gamma Ray” by Beck: “This is the song I’ll put on when I ride to outer space.”
13) “Grazing in the Grass” by Hugh Masekela: “Never fails to make me wish I could dance.”
