Mandy Moore is a whole new woman these days. Not only is she a newlywed (her husband is musician Ryan Adams), but she has an album coming out May 26. The video for her first single, "I Could Break Your Heart Any Day of The Week," is out, and after watching it, we'll be very…

Crave: Metric’s Fantasies

Dream girl/rocker Emily Haines, and her electronic indie rock outfit Metric have just released their new record, Fantasies. But all those things she imagined are now, four records later, more like Emily's reality. And as a committed career gal, she still wants more! Fantasies was a year-and-a-half in the making because the band had bee…

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,…

Eminem’s “We Made You” Video

Eminem's "We Made You" video pokes fun at celebrities who have made headlines over the past couple years -- Bret Michaels for his skanky love search, Jessica Simpson for her weight (should Em really be throwing stones?), Amy Winehouse for her yellow teeth and general cracked-out appearance, Lindsay Lohan for dating Sam Ronson, and Kim…

Mind Of Man: Now Playing — Crappy Love Songs

I just can’t emotionally or physically connect with a woman unless there is some kind of terrible music playing. When it comes to love and romance, timing is everything. There is so little choice when it comes to the fickle demands of your heart. And it’s the same with the music that serves as the…

Crave: Pearl Jam’s “Ten” Collector’s Edition

Chances are, if you're between the ages of 25-40, you owned Pearl Jam's debut album Ten as a teenager or twentysomething. The album was released 18 years ago and to celebrate, the band is re-releasing the record, newly remastered, with bonus tracks, including "Brother," "Just a Girl," "2,000 Mile Blues" and "Evil Little Goat." Out…

Justin Timberlake Gets Manhandled By Ciara

We feel a little dirty watching so much gyrating this early in the morning, but what better way to wake up than by seeing Ciara and Justin Timberlake shake it in the video for "Love Sex Magic"? What do you think of Ciara's style? We think she's copping Beyonce's look a little with all those…

Crave: Hollywood, Mon Amour

The French have an uncanny ability to take anything and make it chic -- just think about how cute they look toting loaves of bread under their armpits! On Hollywood, Mon Amour, Nouvelle Vague producer Marc Colin takes songs from '80s movies -- "Take my Breath Away" from "Top Gun," "Don't you Forget About Me"…

New Bat for Lashes Video: Daniel

A new video arrives from Bat for Lashes: "Daniel." Directed by Johan Renck, who's directed videos for Madonna and Kylie Minogue, it's sort of in the same surreal vein as "What's a Girl to Do?" A little bit Stevie Nicks, a little bit Bjork, the melancholy music vid stars Natasha Khan in tear-streaked makeup getting…

Crave: Angus And Julia Stone’s A Book Like This (Win A Copy!)

We can barely make it through family dinners without getting into a fight with one of our siblings, so we think it's kind of a miracle that brother-sister duo Angus and Julia Stone make such beautiful music together. A Book Like This, their first release in the States, is perfect listening for when you're making…

What Musicians In Formerly Popular Bands Do: Start A New Band

A lot of famous musicians have side projects because they're just so creative that one band isn't enough, i.e., Damon Albarn is in both Blur and Gorillaz, and Spencer Krug is in both Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown. Well, there's a new band that's made up of the most random mix of musicians -- we…

Runway DJ: New York Fashion Week Music

Fashion Week isn't just an event for seeing next season's clothes and spotting celebs sitting front row. It's also one of the best places to hear new music (and remember songs that you'd long forgotten). While live music was a huge trend for Fall 2009 -- Zac Posen had the 5 Browns playing five Steinway…

Lily Allen Does More Than Get Photographed By Paparazzi

In the two years since Lily Allen released Alright, Still, the girl managed to get into a fight with Elton John, dye her hair blond, dye her hair black, dye her hair pink, get pregnant, have a miscarriage, have an affair with a married man, get help losing weight with hypnosis, and continue expressing herself…

Lily Allen Covers Britney Spears

We're happy that Britney Spears seems to be on the road to recovery, and that her new album is doing well and holds the number one spot on the Billboard 200. So, hooray for Britney! Too bad we like Lily Allen's ragtime-y version of "Womanizer" better. Check it out after the jump. [Stereogum]…

10 Albums From 2008 You Might Have Missed

Sure, we loved listening to Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" and Rihanna's "Disturbia," but there were a lot of great albums that didn't get any radio airtime or Grammy nominations. Below, some of my favorite albums that were released this year.

Get Your Rocks Off: The Postelles Get Happy

When you listen to the Postelles, you want to start dancing, and not in a bump-and-grind kind of way. I was listening to "White Night" as I walked home one night, and I almost starting doing the Twist right there on the sidewalk. I was able to hold back, but you might not be able…
