Avery and Harmony drop in to tell us about The Music of Vashti Bunyan, Paradise Kiss, Mashti Malones Ice Cream, Bull Terriers, and more.
Cool people like cool things, which is why we asked Avery Tucker and Harmony Tividad to share a taste of their taste on Perfectly Imperfect.
Avery Tucker and Harmony Tividad make up Girlpool, a Los Angeles based rock band formed back in 2013. I became a fan around the time they dropped Powerplant and I’ve gotta say, they seem to be getting even better with every record. Their new one, Forgiveness, drops on April 29th on Anti- and the singles (and music videos) have all been so good, and I love their new Big Star influenced (?) neon star logo. Check out the melancholy Faultline, which has some sick single art shot by Petra Collins, or Nothing Gives Me Pleasure, a slow burning ballad backed by distorted drums. Lucky for us, they’re here to tell us what they’ve been into.
Without further ado

🛋️ Bluetooth controlled color changing lightbulbs
There’s this amazing new invention where you can download an app to control the color of these specific lightbulbs. It’s pretty iconic because then when you’re in whatever mood you can change the lightbulb color and zone out with some music or specific vibey tv. Great for setting ambiance and being a Moody Lil Bich ⭐️
For some reason I am addicted to this show. I continue to be impressed by what is cake. It is embarrassing but it is honest.
🥜 Walnuts with dates
Amazing snack convo, dates are such an iconic and versatile food, walnuts are extremely nutritious and hearty 10/10.
Good for rain, good for sad, good for happy too. She’s so special to me and so deeply classic.
Best anime😵😵😵😵😵😭😭😭😭 no words can describe the quality of this show. Find on YouTube.

Mashti Malones is an incredible Iranian ice cream shop located in Hollywood. Most of their flavors are floral/fruit/herbal based. They import herbs and spices from Lebanon and India. They import saffron from Iran and use it to color their ice creams! All the colors are natural, and the ice cream is really delicious.
🍴 Clark Street Diner
Clark street diner is a new diner that took over the 101 Coffee Shop (aka cafe 101). I grew up going to cafe 101 so it has a special place in my heart. Even though it closed, the diner that took over is really delicious and perfect for pancakes, eggs, really good coffee and pastries. I love going there and sitting at the counter.
📺 Friday Night Lights
I was recently shown the TV show Friday Night Lights (I know I’m very late in the game) and I am obsessed. Def recommend this if you like entertaining and heartfelt TV.
🐕 Bull Terriers
Bull terriers have been my favorite kind of dog since I was very young. They are extremely loyal, emotional, and super energetic. They bring me so joy. I recommend them as a pet/friend.
🌻 Calla lily
Calla lily flowers are really calming and beautiful. I recommend this flower. It’s one of my favorites.
