In an effort to establish ourselves as tastemaskers, us, the Scout team, listed down our favorites from the past weeks. We may share the same interests, and you may get to know some cool new stuff from this list. That’s cool, right? Think of it as a way of establishing some sort of cyber-friendship. We did our favorites for the third week of August 2016, and as the fourth week draws to a close we make one more before the month ends.

Souvenir jacket from Penshoppe – I was able to cop this limited edition souvenir jacket (as worn by Lucky Blue Smith) last Friday. Best splurge of the week.
Asia Pop Comic Con 2016 – I got to sit down and talk to Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown over breakfast, moments before she entertained everyone at the APCC 2016. I felt like I was the luckiest person alive that time. And I got a wish ticked off my list as I saw my Skins Generation 1 favorites, Nicholas Hoult and Joe Dempsie in the flesh that day. Such a nice time to be alive.

Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION B-Side – Oh, god. CRJ is forever a queen. It’s true that she does deserve a hell of a lot more recognition than she’s getting because her music is a gift to mankind (and we are not worthy!). This B-side is filled with ’80s-inspired gems that are anthems for young girls everywhere.

Young Thug/No, My Name is Jeffery’s latest release, No, My Name is Jeffery – When you’re driving and you pass me the aux cord, chances are you’re going to hear Thugger. Maybe not the first song. Maybe not the second song. Maybe not the third. But you’re going to hear it and you might think it’s weird But he’s a boss; I really like his songs. With this latest release, he took on another name and wore a dress on the cover. He named songs after Rihanna, Kanye West, Wyclef Jean, and Harambe. And his whole thing isn’t a shtick; it’s just how he expresses himself. And that’s gangster.
Bon Iver – “33 God” – Oh my god. Bon Iver’s style has changed, and I love it. I can hear a little bit of 808s and Heartbreak there, and his latest is coming off nicely. I don’t even know how to produce the first two tracks that were released prior to this one. Basta, ang bangis.
$UICIDEBOY$ – ULTIMATE $UICIDE (FEAT. DENZEL CURRY) – Bruh, this is going to kill me live. This track bangs hard. I don’t really listen to these guys on the regular, but off this track goes to my teary-eyed-but-dedicated-exercise playlist. I’ll get around to fixing that playlist when I actually exercise.
