To be honest, Laurie and I meant to do this weeks ago, but the traditional list-making season fell smack in the middle of our traditional February/March print deadline, so you can guess what took precedence. But think of all the things you can do with this appropriately timed year-end list: Play it tonight at your New Year's house party! Listen to it in its entirety ... Read More

I'm sure by now you've heard about Macaulay Culkin's Velvet Underground parody band, "Pizza Underground," or rather the band that's existed for a year and a half and was recently joined by Culkin.

This record showcases a mix of Manny Puss’ signature lo-fi punk sensibilities with some chiller rock ‘n’ roll melodies. Vocalist Marisa Dabice will throw ... Read More
