In honor of the reunion of Fleetwood Mac announced this week (we’re talking new album AND tour!!!!), you should not miss this gorgeous cover of “Dreams,” performed by former Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester and musician Dana Williams. The song was written by Stevie Nicks for the album Rumours (1977), and it was Fleetwood Mac's only #1 hit in the US to sell over one million copies. Yea, Stevie's good like that. The cover is ...

Vancouver three-piece The Courtneys make ‘90s-inspired slacker pop that’ll hang out in your head for weeks. Their songs are literally made of sugar, spice, and everything nice. Well, maybe not everything, but still. Sugar = infectious hooks, silly lyrics about Keanu Reeves, and fun track titles like “Nü Sundae.” Spice = Dinosaur Jr.-like riffs, classic punk bass lines, and general badassery. Everything nice = Jen, Courtney, and Sydney, ... Read More

I'd like to introduce you to my favorite person in the world.Yep, this guy.
He is Gene Kelly on bath salts. He is Tom Jones' best impression of William Shatner. He is a Celtic warrior with a bass drum for a chest. He is an infomercial dad with Satanic leanings. He has seventy-five hip joints, and he is using all of them.
He is Samuel T. Herring of the electro-pop band Future Islands, and he is my future husband, and we will have a beautiful life.
Why do I love ... Read More

Scott Bradlee and Cristina Gatti came together to totally blow us away with a 1940’s swing cover of Beyonce’s "Drunk in Love". This cover is literally a combo of everything that rules: mega-babe musicians, Beyoncé, and lovely lilting tunes. Gatti’s alto voice is perfectly accentuated by big band jams and, man oh man, does it almost give Bey a run for her money. Can you grain it on that wood, swerve on it and serve all this while doing the ... Read More
