Make your #PatchMarc

The patch is back. We all crave different ways to add bits of personality to our favorite basics, and patches pack a certain nostalgia in them that we love. Marc Jacobs knows this to be true and has unveiled a limited-edition collection of 'em.

The nine patches align themselves with the house's Spring 2016 collection. Let's see: There're the traditional letterman M and J initials, Dorothy's red slippers, a patriotic thumbs-up, and a blinged-out rainbow. We're personally loving the Neville patch. The world needs more Neville Jacobs. 

Currently, if you purchase a T-shirt online, you'll get three patches for free. All of the patches, however, are exclusive to Marc Jacobs retail locations and online at Luckily for New York City and Los Angeles residents, we're helping Marc Jacobs throw parties celebrating the collection. Come through the Marc Jacobs store at 403 Bleecker Street, in Manhattan, on April 8 to get your hands on some exclusive tees and patches. We're then traveling across the coast, to the Marc Jacobs store on Melrose Place, in L.A., on April 21 to do the same thing. Patches, patches, patches—which one should you pick? Whatever your heart desires. Let's get our DIY on together.

Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, and so much more

Every weekend, we bring you #SOUNDCHECK—your destination for the best of the best new music that hit the web over the course of the week. Because you should always be prepared when someone passes you that AUX cord. This week's round features 21 of our favorite emerging and established artists including Cardi B, Avril Lavigne, Tacocat, and so many more. Turn up, tune in, and tune out.

"Please Me" - Cardi B and Bruno Mars
"Please Me" will pair perfectly with all of the Valentine's Day candy you just bought on clearance. Trust me, there couldn't be a more perfect time to listen to this ultra-'90s R&B track.

Head Above Water - Avril Lavigne
I'm honestly jealous of whomever Avril is singing about on "Goddess."

Tacocat - Grains of Salt [OFFICIAL VIDEO]

"Grains of Salt" - Tacocat
When I realized Tacocat was back, I literally turned around at my desk and yelled. It's a miracle.

"Can I Talk" - Caleb Steph
Caleb Steph's debut single proves that he's ready for the spotlight.

Betty - Betty Who
"You better recognize/ That you're wasting all my time" from "The One" is my new favorite response to every "photographer" on Tinder.

"Butterfly" - Kehlani
The only thing more beautiful than this cover art is Kehlani's voice.

SASAMI - Free (feat. Devendra Banhart) (Official Video)

"Free" - SASAMI feat. Devendra Banhart
I would have never predicted a SASAMI and Devendra Banhart collaboration, but I am 100 percent not complaining.

Rex Orange County - New House

"New House" - Rex Orange County
Alex O'Connor never fails to impress me with his soulful bedroom pop, and "New House" is no exception.


"Cuz I Love You" - Lizzo
Distorted guitar paired with Lizzo's belting vocals? Chills, literally. She did that!

"Heads Gonna Roll" - Jenny Lewis
Like if Stevie Nicks' voice met Father John Misty's lyrics.

"Get Well" - Donna Missal
Donna Missal tells me everything I needed to hear about breakups on "Get Well."

"Patient" - Monica Martin
Sultry and sweet.

"Whorey Heart" - TeaMarr
TeaMarrr's bouncy new song is an excellent roast of the kind of fuckboi we all know and hate.

"Ice Me Out (Remix)" - Kash Doll
Kash Doll shows that she knows her way around a beat on "Ice Me Out."

"Lips of Lips" - Tiffany Young
Definitely catch me driving around with my windows down this summer blaring "Lips on Lips."
