RVCA Advocates Broken Social Scene were recently in Chicago playing the Pitchfork fest. During some time off they filmed a special new segment for Pitchfork's new P.O.V. series doing three songs-- including one unreleased jam-- at Lincoln Hall. The segment lets you play director and switch in live time between 6 different camera angles and since there are more members in BSS than your average band, the extra perspectives really come in handy. You can also watch all six streams at once, and switch angles by clicking one of the numbered thumbnails on the screen. It's a blast. And big ups to the guys in the band for being so nicely decked out in all of RVCA's latest and greatest Summer 2010 duds!

Here's a little edit from Active Board Shop of Figgy from Emerica to get you all hyped on Emerica's upcoming Stay Gold skate film. The video is sure to slay it, don't miss out on it. Filming is just wrapping up with the deadline coming up next week and the feature drops in September!
Shouts to Hypebeast on this one. 'In just six months Stocklhom-based Urbanears have made a huge impact on the global market with their unique and multi-colored brand of ear/headphones. The latest development from Urbanears comes in its Medis, an unprecedented experience in ergonomics, functionality and design, taking the next step for the in-ear headphone. What makes Medis unique is how it sits in your ear. The Medis uses the patented EarClick solution to secure the earpiece at two separate points to the outer canal of your ear, rather than one, relieving pressure to a nearly non-existent level, while keep it firmly in place. The Medis is now available through select retailers, coming in 12 colors.'
