We Interrupt This Program …

Tags: ,

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.

Willow Smith “Whip My Hair” music video

Tags: ,

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!

Kurt Vile “In My Time”

Tags: ,

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. […]

Spider Bags “Take It Easy Tonite”

Tags: ,

Spider Bags’ new single will be out in two days (Tuesday, Oct. 19), so I’m getting this post in just under the wire. I’m ashamed to admit that the band has been around since at least 2005 and I’ve only just heard of them. I’d say using anything with the word “country” to describe this […]

La Sera “Never Come Around”

Tags: , , ,

Either Katy Goodman aspires to be Jenny Lewis 2.0 (she of the redheaded brigade and many, many musical side projects) or she’s just incredibly restless: in addition to her continued work with Vivian Girls and All Saints Day, she’s also recording as La Sera. Of course, all the blog-kids are all over this most recent […]

Pomegranates “Skull Cakin'”

Tags: , ,

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 […]

We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves “Miss Maris Morris”

We Can’t Enjoy Ourselves claim to be from Brooklyn but, honestly, I don’t believe them: Giovanni Saldarriaga, their lead singer, has that British invasion lilt. 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 […]
