A Love Song About the Common Cold

This is quite a clever and fun song and video from Aimee Mann. I’ve loved Aimee’s music since she blew me away on the Magnolia soundtrack. I have all her albums except her latest. Much more about the project this song below comes from (and how to purchase it) is here. It’s also nice to [Read More...]

An Arty Take On Britney Spears

I always loved the chorus to this song, so I’m glad to see someone open up the artistic possibilities within the whole concept. Yaël Naïm’s “Toxic”: Your Thoughts? [Read more...]

The Walkmen's "Heaven"

Below is the new video from The Walkmen for the title track of their new album Heaven, which came out last week. The song basically sounds like every other Walkmen song. Which means it sounds fantastic. I got to see them live in the winter of 2010. A real treat, don’t miss them if you [Read More...]

"Hey! The Zooey Deschanel Show"

Noël Kristi Wells does a mean Zooey Deschanel impression: That’s her take on acting, here she is on music: More episodes: Episode 3: Womanhood Episode 4: Christmas Episode 5: Love Episode 6: The Internet Episode 7: Fashion and (bonus episode 7 laugh outtakes) It’s worth noting these parodies began before Zooey’s show “New Girl” premiered.

"Sorry OK Yes" Reminds Me of the Black Keys

Check out the catchy crunchy electric guitars on this song “So” by the band Sorry OK Yes. Especially give this a listen if you love the old school Black Keys (as I do). That’s the basic vibe here. Their stuff can be purchased here, though I don’t see anything for this song there. I haven’t [Read More...]
