So 2010 was the year that all the fashion blogs started a love affair with LCD Soundsystem. May we suggest a summer fling? How about Tiga. The Canadian-born producer/DJ/artist makes music that's cut from the same poppy-electro-indie-disco cloth as LCD's sound—in fact, Tiga is a frequent co-conspirator with James Murphy. Tiga's got a definite fashion pedigree: he was part of the H&M Fashion Against Aids campaign of a couple years ago. His latest album Ciao! features a song called Shoes; how can you not love that? And just look with your own two eyes: the man is smokin' hot. He's in town this weekend, playing the HARD Summer Music Festival, downtown. [HARD, Tiga]
