Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of August 12th 2008


  • Jonas Brothers A Little Bit Longer
    The Jonas Brothers have put out! Sadly, we mean just another record. Despite the suggestive title, the handsome teen trio won’t give it or the music biz up anytime soon and they’re pretty hip for being squares.
  • The Cure “The Perfect Boy (Mix 13)”
    While Robert Smith has been a bit of a Debbie Downer, singing sad songs since the ’90s, it looks like even he’s coming back with the ’80s. The Cure just released a new single, “The Perfect Boy”, and it’s as sexy as the guy it’s about. No word on whether Smith has wiped off his runny mascara and smeared lipstick look too, but hey, at least he still sounds good!
  • The Script Script
    Like the Maroon 5 of Ireland (except with just three members), The Script sings light rock love songs. Their self-titled first studio album release is likely to put them on the map stateside too.
  • Extreme Saudades de Rock
    Extreme, the hair metal band best known for making women swoon with their ballad More Than Words, has just released another hard rockin’ record: Saudades de Rock.


  • Comedy Central’s Kenny vs. Spenny: Volume One
    These competing cuties from Canada make boyish pranks oh-so-sexy! Produced by South Park’s Trey Parker and Matt Stone, watch best buds Kenny and Spenny adorably battle it out in their hilarious challenges, like “the first man to get a boner loses”. The new season starts this Fall, so in the meantime you can snuggle up on the couch with a DVD of the ridiculously funny roommates.
  • Brand Upon The Brain
    This Criterion Collection release is a sci-fi cult classic from Canadian filmmaker Guy Maddin. A hit at the 2006 Toronto Film Festival, the modern, silent, black and white movie, Brand Upon the Brain, is an eerie gothic dreamscape adventure into the mind of an eccentric man.
  • Caroline in the City: Season 1
    This ’90s sitcom about a Midwestern girl cartoonist, played by the lovable Leah Thompson, who moves to the big city, is a total guilty-pleasure. So if you’re still crushing on her inker, Richard, or her long-haired ex, Del, now you can finally take them both home on DVD.
