When you’re a music fan — a real music fan — you seek to ingest the very essence of your favorite act, drinking in every detail of every moment of his/her storied life. Well, now you can do so literally with this collection of drinks created by musicians.
“Thirsty” takes on a whole new meaning here, huh?
1.) Jenny Lewis’ Wine
The former Rilo Kiley frontwoman has a new wine, made especially to go with her new record, The Voyager. It’s apparently “a blend of carignan, valdiguie and petit sirah.” A find blend, indeed. Why not slurp while watching a blend of Lewis, Anne Hathaway, Kristen Stewart and Brie Larson?
2.) And Nikki Minaj’s Wine
3.) Hanson’s Beer
I remember when Hanson were too young to bring to a bar. Because I am old. Now they are old enough to drink and have babies and, more importantly, their own beer: MmmHops. I’m guessing when you drink it you become as unintelligible (and adorable!) as that song.
4.) And Mumford And Sons’ Beer
Mumford And Sons helped make a special festival beer called The Lewes Stopover Brew. It’s made with “Fuggle and Golding hops,” which sounds just so wonderfully banjo.
5.) The New Pornographers’ Coffee
Music can make you feel awake. So can coffee. When you put the two together you get The New Pornographers’ Brill Brew, which is named after their forthcoming album Brill Bruisers. Indulge in both — and try not to twitch too much.
6.) And James Murphy’s Coffee
The former LCD Soundsystem frontman’s coffee, “House Of Good,” is “akin to the second movement of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3 — or, perhaps, to that buzzing, syncopated synth line from ’Dance Yrself Clean.’ Depends on which James you ask,” according to Blue Bottle Coffee. I would very much like to taste a synth line.
7.) And St. Vincent’s Coffee
8.) Mogwai’s Whiskey
The Scottish band launched their own whiskey (surprise!) to promote their album Rave Tapes. It’s apparently sold out, which is unfortunate because we have nothing to cry into about the fact that it’s sold out. What a bitter cycle.
9.) Mariah’s Butterfly
