Available 12/21 – 12/28: School of Seven Bells “The Night”
Now just a duo of Benjamin Curtis and Alejandra Deheza, School of Seven Bells are back with a new album. Ghostory, out this February on Vagrant records, pumps with an electric urgency. Recorded between tours in stolen moments, the album tells the story of a young girl named Lafaye who is haunted by ghosts. But don’t get scared off – this is by no means a goth record or a horror story. It’s a pumping, driving, psychedelic danceable record that’s definitely some of their best work yet.
What do you do to keep your face protected on the mountain?
I wear a neck warmer, Roxy makes some really nice ones that you can hide from the cold with style. And I also use SPF 25 sunscreen.
What item do you consider your must-have on the hill?
Music. My phone or a shuffle. I put a good playlist on so I can jam out. Everything from really cruise-y music to upbeat. Music inspires me to try something that I’m scared of.
Tell us something that would surprise us about yourself?
I use a reusable glass coffee mug with a glass straw to protect my teeth from the coffee staining.
@ajuthe asked: What’s your favorite part about snowboarding? and what is your fav trick? i’m going to guess air to fakie in the pipe!
I love air-to-fakies. But now my favorite trick is a backside 5 on a jump, it feels really good in the air.
@adribbby asked: How do you manage to snowboard so long without freezing?!
I wear wool first layers, even wool underwear. Growing up in Norway I learned a lot about this. They even have bras made of wool. Don’t use cotton because that will make you colder. Roxy has a lot of good fleece options. And foot warmers, the ones with the rechargeable batteries are good.
@ibisssx3 asked: Where’s you favorite place to snowboard at?
Wherever there’s good snow. I like the Breckenridge and Keystone parks, and Tahoe and Northstar is great in the spring. Norway has some cools spots, and Japan for powder.
@kiranapiranha asked: If you couldn’t snowboard for a living, what would you be doing instead?
I would be a teach of some sort. I love kids and I like to teach people things. …And if I could choose a talent, I would be a singer or a rockstar…but I don’t have that talent.
@sj4569 asked: Hey what’s your favorite thing to do when your not snowboarding?
I love to watch movies. Old ones and new ones. In the Christmas spirit, Love Actually is a really good one. I also like to shoot photos, edit photos, edit movies, all kinds of media stuff. And I love to play my ukelele. I’m not very good yet, but everyday I’m learning. I’m learning Christmas songs now, on the uke.

Following a time-worn path, Arkansas native Cory Lamb moved to Los Angeles as a young adult to pursue his dream of becoming a working musician. While in Tinseltown, he fine-tuned his guitar-driven pop-rock songs by playing in clubs and working with seasoned recording engineer John Guess, in the process garnering serious interest from major labels. Never forgetting his true muse, however, Lamb chose to return home to Arkansas to record his album, Break The Cycle, a solid collection of rock tunes that sounds good regardless of where it originated. That’s his song playing during Roxy Refreshments episode 2!

As we get closer and closer to the shortest day of the year (at least up here in the Northern Hemisphere) it’s important to keep your energy up and stay focused. It’s so easy to end up hibernating like a bear when the mornings are pitch black and the sun sets so early. We recommend getting through this season with the help of some excellent music, like Phantogram’s “Don’t Move” off their recently released Nightlife EP. The duo of Josh Carter and Sarah Barthel know exactly how much energy to put into each song to keep things interesting and keep us on task – whether we’re studying for finals, driving to the mountain, trying find last-minute gifts and simply just trying to relax. We definitely recommend you check this one out.
Roxy team rider Ty Walker has been named to the US Olympic slopestyle team, joining the ranks of snowboarding’s elite. Ty is the youngest team member (at 14 years old) and also the only girl on the team! We checked in with Ty to see how things are going so far:
Ty Walker here! Hoping everybody is loving the start of the winter season as much as I am! After spending Thanksgiving with my family, I came back to Colorado to ride with the U.S. Snowboard Team. The U.S. Team consists of the riders that the USSA (United States Ski/Snowboard Association) thinks are the most likely candidates to go to the next Olympics (and hopefully medal ). I feel so honored to be on the team, especially since it’s the first U.S. Slopestyle Team ever and I’m the only girl. They’ve given us US Snowboarding Team luggage bags, t-shirts, stickers, and a bunch of other stuff that they give you to rep U.S. Snowboarding. I love the stuff and it makes me super proud to represent my country in that way.
Roxy set off to New York City and we brought along Roxy team rider and Olympic Gold Medalist Torah Bright to help spread the word for Clothes4Souls- the national charity we are helping support throughout the month of December in NYC Roxy stores!

Featured Track: “Warm in the Water”
Vocalist Ida No and multi-instrumentalist / producer Johnny Jewel have been crafting indie dance anthems under the name Glass Candy for ten years now. Each release by the prolific Portland, Oregon duo seems to get more and more accessible and dancefloor-friendly, and their new EP, Warm In The Winter, takes their body-shaking M.O. to a whole new level. Featuring Jewel’s playful beats and No’s winking vocals, the EP’s unrelentingly hypnotic title track won’t ever let you take yourself too seriously at the gym!
