LATELY WITH KELCEY & MEL AYER
The Local Natives' Kelcey Ayer and his better half, Mel Caselas Ayer, share what they've been into lately from books and music to fashion and travel.
Latest travel adventure?
Mel: Kelcey is currently on tour with his band, Local Natives, so we've been getting to see a lot of cool, remote towns across America together. One of our favorites has been Saxapahaw, NC. The Haw River Ballroom there runs on solar and geothermal power, which is awesome.
What have you been playing on repeat?
Kelcey: I've been playing Andy Shauf's "The Party" from last year non-stop. Also, Weval's debut record from last year is amazing. I'm always a year behind.
Book you can't put down?
Kelcey: I'm reading Joan Didion's "The Year of Magical Thinking", and I feel like she writes identically to how Mel says stuff.
Wearing around town?
Mel: We love our Nisolo shoes, and often look down to realize we've both worn them on the same day. What's something else we both wear?
Kelcey: Dog hair. Even after being on the road for weeks, I still find little reminders of our husky, Tasha.
