5 Reasons Why You Need To Listen To Bleachers’ New Album, Strange Desire

5 Reasons Why You Need To Listen To Bleachers’ New Album, Strange Desire

Yesterday was a big release day for music lovers.  Not only did it mark the highly anticipated return of one Miss Jenny Lewis—did you see her star-studded new video for “Just One Of The Guys”?—but it also introduced fans to the debut album from Bleachers, the alter ego of singer/guitarist Jack Antonoff. Called Strange Desire, the LP features the alt-pop anthem “I Wanna Get Better,” which is a call to arms for anyone who has a permanent case of the Mondays and can’t seem to shake the black cloud overhead.

In recent years, Antonoff has become best known as one-third of the band fun. and one-half of the world’s most creative power couple (his girlfriend is actress/writer/director/goddess Lena Dunham). However, for anyone who was obsessed with the rock scene coming out of New Jersey in the early ’00s—coughmecough—then you’re probably well familiar with the singer/songwriter from his time as the lead singer of Steel Train.

It’s so great to see Antonoff back in front of the mic and fans should check out Bleachers when they roll through a town near you this summer/fall.  Also, be sure to pick up a copy of Strange Desire out now.

If you’re still not convinced you should give Bleachers a shot, then allow me to present the following five-point case. Keep reading »

We Are Family: 5 Pairs Of Siblings With Creative Superpowers

For some families, creativity—or possibly basic cognitive learning and motor skills—skips a generation. (Examples include the spawn of Rod Stewart, Demi Moore and/or Lorenzo Lamas.) For others, the DNA decides to cluster together and generate a super-powered pedigree of icons, inventors and innovators. (Might we interest you in a Spielberg or Coppola?)

With that in mind, take a gander at these insanely creative brothers and sisters born to the same mothers and misters, respectively.

Lena Dunham Had No Idea Her Boyfriend Jack Antonoff Dated Scarlett Johansson Until She Saw It On A Blog

  • Lena Dunham found out her boyfriend Jack Antonoff used to date Scarlett Johansson by reading a Tumblr about celebrity hookups called Old Loves. “I was like, ‘My mind is going to explode,”" she told a Grantland podcast. Scarlett and Jack dated back in the early-’00s when they were both students at the Professional Children’s School in New York City. This actually makes me appreciate Jack for not being the kind of guy who brags about dating ScarJo. [Grantland]

Read A Love Letter That Lena Dunham Sent To Her Boyfriend

My love life is currently in flux, best described as “genuinely complicated” with a heavy dose of “timing sucks,” and I admit I’m prone to occasional moments of unfair irritation in my encounters with folks who are seemingly simply and easily in love. I expected such a flare-up when I started reading a love letter (well, love email) from “Girls” writer/star Lena Dunham to her boyfriend Jack Antonoff (who’s in the band fun.), which was included as part of artist Miranda July’s “We Think Alone” project (20 emails sent over 20 weeks by a variety of famous and semi-famous people). But honestly, Lena’s letter to Jack is so sweet and speaks to our very human desire to soak up everything we can about the ones we love, that I could nothing but relate, in the very best way, complicated relationship situation or not. Read it after the jump! Keep reading »
