Band to Watch: Frankie Rose and The Outs

June 30th, 2010 No Comments

Admittedly I am no expert on all female music groups. I never got into them and have never done much research. I learned a bit about the roots of all female rock groups from the 60’s in my contemporary pop music class in college but other than that I know zip. What I do know is […]


Curren$y feat. Mikey Rocks- “The Hangover”

June 29th, 2010 No Comments

New track off of Curren$y’s upcoming Pilot Talk album featuring Mikey from The Cool Kids. Curren$y’s album drops July 13th and at this point for me it’s pretty much a must buy. Download “The Hangover” right here

helmet to release new album sept. 7

June 29th, 2010 No Comments

what mortal doesn’t still love “unsung”? the stop-n-go rhythm + ’90s guitar grinding is a like a warm, musical blanket. it just struck me how much the album cover from meantime references one of my ultimate favorite albums of all time: minor threat. news is helmet is releasing their first album in four years; see […]

Artist to Watch: Electric Sunset

June 28th, 2010 No Comments

Been a while since I threw up one of these and I figured the readers would appreciate something different than just another Drake remix or mash up. Electric Sunset is essentially Animal Collective but instead of 3 dudes it’s only 1, Nic Zwart, and he’s got a better voice. Same kind of feel, that being […]

A good one to take you into the weekend. The man of “I Need A Dollar” fame gives MJ a nice tribute with this rendition of “Billie Jean”. Nice laid back video and this guys got some pipes.

Katy Perry- “California Gurls” (Passion Pit Remix)

June 24th, 2010 No Comments

Everyone’s favorite new summertime anthem (cough-called it-cough cough) gets a reworking from the passion pit crew. Interesting take on the song, I’m kind of a fan. Download the remix right here

Ron Artest- “Champions” (video)

June 21st, 2010 No Comments

You know what’s even more shocking than the fact that this video exists? The fact that the song isn’t really that terrible. That was an awesome game 7 last week and I’m weirdly happy Artest got a ring. Say Queensbridge.

ahhOoooo. shakira + juanes and world cup music fever

June 19th, 2010 No Comments

can’t say we aren’t musically diverse @imaginary frend. two fave videos here: shakira’s amazing “she wolf” starts at about 6-min. yes, she humps a speaker (see: 8:22); yes, you’d be crazy too if you were columbian/middle-eastern—lay off! juanes has a hit with his new single “yerbatero,” which he debuted at this opener, and it’s super […]
