It appears that the not so subtle whisper of autumnal fancies is creeping into my Ipod in an exceptionally fabulous way. The crisp breeze and changing of the leaves harkens the sweet romantic sounds of my favorite smorgasbord of sultry Parisian pop, which always includes a healthy dose of Serge Gainsbourg. Compelling me to observe the world in the most imaginary of ways, his picturesque crooning and composition turns my everyday mundane into a stylized French ... Read More
Personal music libraries are like fingerprints. Each is unique and fascinating in it’s own special way. Some are more refined around the edges, and others just down right awful.  Think you have nothing in common with your grandma’s taste in toe tapping tunes?  Or maybe you are looking to find the missing link between your 12 year old, bubble gum pop infested past, and your current romance with the latest Best Coast record?  What really is ...

At this week's Converse: Three Artists, One Song show in Brooklyn, there were incredible mash-up performances by Kid Cudi, Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend, and Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast. The unlikely combination of sweet ballad singing, rapping, and poppy/punky guitar playing made for an incredible summer song that anyone would love, and should push "California Gurls" out of the water. Don't believe me? Listen to "All Summer" below. You need ... Read More
It's Wednesday. It's the afternoon in the summer. So what do to do? Stay inside and play video games of course! Or even better/equal to that, surfing the interwebs for videos.  Check out this pretty sweet music video by the Guild. For any girl who was play an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role play game), I'm sure you've experienced this at least once, (even if you pick a male avatar!)

This will be her first official release as an independent artist (hooray!), and the awesome thing about this whole independence ... Read More

She was raised in Canada, but when she returned to Afghanistan she realized her calling was to be part of what she calls “a much needed ... Read More

Weird Art!”  (plus, I think it’s common knowledge that anything with three exclamation points in the title is guaranteed to be awesome).  It all goes down tonight from 8-midnight @ Brooklyn Fireproof Bar (119 Ingram St.).    Not only ...
