Last night I got to go to a concert at Irving Plaza to see some of my favorite people perform some of my favorite songs. It was called the Starkid SPACE Tour, and yes it sounds stupid, but they are really the funniest, most talented group of people ever.

I'm loving the new single entitled Madeline by Lissy Trullie. While I'll admit I was skeptical of her first release back in 2009 (another former model makes the scene?) She has completely won me over, especially here with her deep, Nico-ish inflections and the "Sunday Morning" guitar and sombre tambourine taps. Looking forward to hearing her new album, produced by John Hill (Santigold, M.I.A., Shakira) and David Sitek (TV On the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) out ... Read More
