For Kids In The Hall. Can you, or can’t you, kill Rock & Roll? Due to continued internet issues, my ability is post is zero to none. However, I’m moving this weekend, and then hopefully everything will be better.

I love how Willow Smith manages to make cutting-edge R&B while acting completely age-appropriate, as in this video. What else could you expect from a child of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith? Have a great weekend, people!
This song sounds a little like it could have been written by an ex-druggie ’60s folk singer, or … Kurt Vile. Listening to it, I’m lying in the grass, I’m looking at the stars; I’m sitting in a rocking chair on a porch somewhere, sounding grizzled, and telling some youngin’ about the good old days. […]
I’m starting a new job today, hence the mix: Elvis Costello – Welcome To The Working Week The Replacements – I Will Dare Ryan Adams – To Be Young (Is To Be Sad, Is To Be High) Belle & Sebastian – White Collar Boy The Dead Milkmen – Do the Brown Nose Drive-By Truckers – […]

Pomegranates, one of 2009’s success stories (you know how it goes: band releases debut album, gets blog attention, goes on tour, etc. …) have a new album, One of Us, coming out on October 26. “Skull Cakin’” is one my favorite songs off the album: it’s energetic, it’s fun, it lets me channel my inner […]

They play what they term “post-Thatcherite Pop” (hilarious!), though I think it’s more like The Smiths on Prozac. Their debut album, One Belongs Here More Than You, is pretty freaking […]
