Heartsrevolution has been a known name in the club scene both here in the states and across the pond since 2008, so it may be a bit surprising to discover that their first full-length album is only now coming out. Over the past few years, the duo went far to promote an image that made their name one to be remembered. Lead singer Leyla  “Lo” Safai dons a pink stripe across her eyes, they travel across the country in a Swarovski crystal-covered ice ... Read More
In the Disney Channel factory, they manufacture young actor-singer-hyrbids faster and with more precision than one of Will.I.Am’s crazy new 3-D printers -- creating perfectly adorable, multitalented camera-ready creatures that can not only cry on cue, but can also sing, dance and hype the crowd in a rhinestone-encrusted ensemble accompanied with a matching wireless headset microphone. However, not all celebrities were created with these duel ... Read More

Apart from her amazing performance in her band White Lung, it was Mish Way's unabashed admiration for Courtney Love that first endeared her to me.  For all her faults, Courtney taught a generation of girls that women could be wild rock stars too. Sure, there were lots of female-fronted rock groups like Veruca Salt and Garbage around, but none were nearly as in-your-face, smart and unapologetic as Courtney.  She always had an articulate and witty reply ...

“The best film music is not heard,” quotes Claudia Gorban in her essay Music as Salvation: Notes on Fellini and Rota. She tastefully disagrees with this quote, asking why is that people focus so much on the “background” music in Fellini’s films? I ask myself the same question. Why is that I focus so much on the background music? Our non-diegetic friend that is lurking behind what is going on on-screen stands out further to me than any ... Read More
Blond wigs and surreal dance solos seem to be a trend in pop music this spring. None have used these elements as symbolically, however, as Lena Dunham performing an interpretive dance to Sia's new single "Chandelier" on Late Night with Seth Meyers. The wig mirrors Sia's own blond bob, which facelessly adorns the cover of her new album 1000 Forms of Fear.In the feminist community especially, we're all aware of the controversy surrounding Dunham, star ...

Whether or not you give Alanis Morissette credit for producing ballad after ballad for just about every emotion a person could feel, for overcoming a major eating disorder in her late teens and later promoting eating disorder awareness, for that one time where she hosted the Juno awards in a nude leotard to comment on the era of censorship in our post-nipplegate society, or for kissing Carrie Bradshaw, Alanis Morissette is simply a goddess. Her new video for track ... Read More
Patty Griffin’s latest album American Kid was released a year ago. Since then she’s been touring to promote. Patty and her kick ass band came around again to NYC for 2 shows and I was lucky enough to go to her Music Hall of Williamsburg gig this past Friday night. Ms. Griffin and company held the audience captive for 90 minutes with selections from Patty’s catalogue as well as a few surprise numbers. If I had to use one word to describe Ms. ... Read More
As recently as 2012, Mary Lambert was working as a bartender in Seattle. But these days, the 25-year-old singer/songwriter is signed to Capitol Records, which released her EP Welcome to the Age of My Body in December and has slated her full-length debut (tentatively titled Burn Bright) for this summer. She’s been written up in The New York Times, appeared on Good Morning America, and sang at the Grammys with Madonna. “It happened so quickly,” Lambert says. ... Read More
