In other news about male pop/R&B singers feeling the responsibility to remind women of all colors, sizes, and ages of their beauty, Pharrell has released a new music video for his song “Come Get It Bae”. The video starts out with a declaration in bright red letters: “Beauty Has No Expiration Date”. I instantly prepared myself for another John Legend-type “embrace the beauty of all women-style music video.” ... Read More
The Casket Girls, a three-piece from Georgia, is one of the very few bands with a creation story as dreamlike as its music. With a sound that’s equal parts soulful and grungy, dreamy and haunting, the Casket Girls really hold their own in the realm of what their record label accurately dubs “eerie-pop." They aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a summer soundtrack, but Strange Majik is here to change that. In their remix of ... Read More

The bird and the bee are back!  And this time it’s with their fun and catchy new song “Undone,” which is featured in the film “Sex Tape,” (Jason Segal, Cameron Diaz, Rob Lowe) released last Friday, July 18.    The LA-based indie synth-pop duo, made up of Inara George ("the bird") and Greg Kurstin ("the bee") have been on a 4-year hiatus from releasing original music.  While we’ve all been suffering from the ...

India-born, Southern California raised singer-songwriter Zoya Mohan has already jumped through the hoops that many artists do later in their career. The incredibly self-aware and talented artist has made a mold for herself in the challenging music industry - an industry that holds itself on predisposed ideas of "what will sell" that are often very misogynistic in nature. Zoya taught herself the nooks and crannies of guitar playing at 13 years old, when her father ... Read More
For the first time in four years, The New Pornographers are back with a new album, music video, and an upcoming fall tour.The official music video for “War on the East Coast” premiered yesterday at Rolling Stone and is taking a “mid-nineties second tier britpop attitude.” A.C. Newman comments that he’d previously never felt the need to appear in any of the Pornographers’ music vids, but with this one, they “wanted to ... Read More
Sylvan Esso’s song “Play It Right” speaks of two sounds and two souls coming together. This, in a sense, is how Amelia Meath and Nick Sanborn of Sylvan Esso came to be a band. After sharing the bill in a small club, Meath asked Sanborn to remix the song she had written and the rest is history. The pair met up in Durham, North Carolina to start work on their self-titled debut album, a swirl of electro-pop beats and Meath’s cool and soothing ... Read More
  Jenny Lewis is one of my favorite musicians of all time. I didn’t think my love for this maven could’ve grown any more after years of touring as one-half of my favorite band Rilo Kiley, her very successful solo albums Jenny Lewis with the Watson Twins: Rabbit Fur Coat and Acid Tongue, or the fact that she played Phyllis Nefler’s daughter in the cult classic Troop Beverly Hills.But she’s topped everything, and the Internet might just ...

Multi-faceted artist Hannah Lew has been having quite a year. After a group consensus to put her post-punk band, Grass Widow, on the backburner, Lew has been spending her time starting her own record label, making music videos, and forming new musical projects with fellow Bay Area musicians. Lately the bassist, visual artist and filmmaker’s main focus has been her new band, Cold Beat. Lew acts as the sole lyricist and vocalist of Cold Beat, whose debut ... Read More
There are tons and tons of ultra talented divas that have helped to revolutionize the music industry, from Aretha Franklin to Madonna, to Billie Holliday, to Queen Bey, but very few of these stellar vocalists are actually responsible for writing their own music or lyrics. Of course, out of hundreds of songs, a few can be attributed to the actual singer, such as Aretha Franklin’s “Think” (about whatcha tryna do to me), but like so many other great ... Read More
