Northwest Hotties

Posted by on September 9 at 16:24 PM

Although I’m sure it’s nothing compared to, say, “grunge” being featured in NME, it is a little crazy to see a big spread on “cool Northwest indie rockers” in the debut issue of Nylon Guys, the pop culture mag’s new male offshoot. Although they’ve barely played a handful of shows, members of Bats of Belfry, Band of Horses, and Moon Rats are artfully displayed alongside photos of the Vells, Spencer Moody, and Sam Jayne—who technically is a New Yorker now. Lovely photos of some handsome men (and one lady)…in a magazine that claims it’s “not for girls.”
