If there’s anything better than a friend willing to lend you a good outfit, it’s one who’s willing to lend you a great album. Best friends and musicians Lani Thomison and Ericka Herod are knee-deep in both, and their shared love for vinyl and fashion are just two of the things that keep this Austin friendship ticking. While Lani is a vocalist in the band Keeper, Ericka can often be spotted holding down the turntables as the DJ at one of the best bars in Austin, the Living Room. We met up with this crazy fun pair of besties at Juiceland in Hyde Park to talk about good albums, great haircuts, and keeping it way real.
