James Franco: The Album

James Franco continues his quest to master every art form out there—from directing to writing to sculpture. Now, he's a musician too! On July 12, James will be releasing his debut album, Turn It Up, a collaboration with Kalup Linzy, the drag-loving performance artist who James invited for an appearance on "General Hospital." Thus thi…

Lil B Titles Album “I’m Gay,” Receives Major Backlash

The hip hop world isn't exactly known for being gay-friendly, what with the frequent homophobic rhymes and someone like 50 Cent going as far as to joke, "I had my homie shoot up a gay wedding" on Twitter. So it was a pretty bold move when rapper Lil B announced last week that his new…

Apple Attempts To Bring Albums Back

Remeber those things, what were they called? Oh yeah! Albums. Back in the day, before we had iTunes, Limewire, YouTube and other internet-y things we actually had to physically buy disks containing music from a real, 3-D store! Well those days are over. But wait, Apple is saying, not so fast.

Crave: Jenny Owen Youngs’ “Led To The Sea”

We don't develop girl crushes on many women. In fact, we're kind of picky about who gets our admiration, because not many possess smarts, looks, spunk, and silliness in one package. Jenny Owen Youngs meets our criteria, and we can't wait for her album Transmitter Failure to come out next month. We snuck a listen,…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of June 3rd 2008

Goddamn you half-emo guys, you do it to me every time. To follow up the poptastic single that makes even my vegetarian roommate want a spoonful of Pork and Beans, Weezer has a new classic, cheap, and colorful record- The Red Album. Sigh, Rivers Cuomo may not beThe Greatest Man Whoever Lived, but he's still…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of May 27th 2008

Rihanna’s new single, "Take A Bow" is out just in time to be your slow summer jam. She looks rad pouting in red lipstick in the video, but the soon-to-be hit is about someone who has been breakin’ Rihanna’s heart! In the track of her tears, just like in Madonna’s Take A Bow, Rihanna applaud…

Scarlett Johansson Churns Out Her First Single

Catherine and I disagree on very few things -- the musical talent of The Counting Crows, meat, this song, and perhaps the notion of Scarlett Johansson fancying herself a popstar all together. This is the video for the first single off Scarlett's upcoming album, Anywhere I Lay My Head, in which most of the song…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of April 22nd 2008

The only thing I want to grab today is Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords (Bret’s bodacious, too). In fact, this duo is probably why girls are born with two hands -- FYI, that’s not scientific or anything. As lady luck would have it, they’ve finally released all their funky, sexy songs from their HBO…

Madonna’s Hard Candy Gets Leaked

A bunch of tracks from Madonna's not-yet-released new album, Hard Candy, were leaked this weekend. What do you think of her latest effort? We think a lot of the tracks seem to be more of a Justin Timberlake/Timbaland show than a Madge-spectacular, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. [Oh No They Didn't]…

Gnarls Barkley are The Odd Couple, also the name of their great second album, out today. You can always count on the dynamic duo of Cee-Lo and Danger Mouse for soulful dance party starters like their new single Run and silly couples costumes like Wayne and Garth. Just like track three, Going On, promises, Gnarl…
