JAMES MCAVOY: I’VE SPENT YEARS PLAYING ‘MENTAL CASES’

Not many people are having a year as big as James McAvoy. Fresh off a starring role where he played Charles Xavier in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which will be followed up X-Men: Apocalypse in 2016, the Scottish actor is also set to turn heads next month in the romantic drama The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (even though he initially turned the project down.) We’re just glad the circumstances changed and he ended up taking the part—and that he’s our newest cover star. Continue reading

MARTINEZ BROTHERS TOUR DIARY PT. II

It was roughly three or so months ago when The Martinez Brothers caught our eye here at NYLON Guys. Not only are they Givenchy’s official runway DJ’s come fashion week, but Steve and Chris have amassed an enormous following playing festivals, putting out EP’s, and running their own label on the side. And as one can imagine, all those prior mentioned accolades lead to a rather interesting life—one that’s definitely worth documenting.
That very idea lead us to our first feature with them. Continue reading

WORLDS APART

Porter Robinson heads to the minibar and fishes out a Red Bull almost as soon as he enters the hotel suite. It’s been a long day for the 21-year-old producer, but he can’t help but pace the room as he speaks, his statements peppered with little bursts of enthusiasm. He’s excited about what’s to come—grueling work schedule be damned. Continue reading

GOIN’ BACK TO CALI

Everyone is YG’s hype man tonight, including Keke Palmer. The actress, decked out in all red with a backwards Compton cap to match, is among the 30-plus entourage members and media who’ve swarmed the backstage area of Irving Hall after an hour of limb-flailing to the L.A. rapper’s party-starters like “My Hitta” and “Who Do You Love?” The creaky floor-boards are showing their age, and the window unit is barely cooling the cramped space.

a musical resurfacing

A very beautiful image came to mind the very first time we heard of Mansions On The Moon, and an even more beautiful sound graced our ears the first time we heard their music. The LA transplants, originally from Virginia Beach, have been killing it since their Diplo-supported debut mix tape dropped back in 2011. Since Paradise Falls, we’ve heard two outstanding EPs: the first of which fell into the hands of Pharrell Williams & N.E.R.D who co-signed the release. Continue reading
