If you’ve ever wanted to channel some 70’s Mexican mysticism, look no further than Matt Correia’s carefully curated multi-disciplinary art.
The LA-based drummer of the Allah Las cooks up a type of nostalgia that you’d normally find in the pages of vintage photo books. He’s also behind the curated sounds of Reverberation Radio. It’s no wonder we decided to ask this guy to grab a disposable camera and some tubes of Sun Bum and shoot a day in the life. His photos leave us with the memory of cracking a cold one on a beach down under the Mexican sun after a long salty surf session…ahhhh…can’t you feel it?
