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…

Madonna Provides The Soundtrack To Her Own Divorce

With Guy Ritchie and Madonna making their divorce plans official, you know that ho (as always) is going to turn to music to get her through it. Since she’s supposedly has A-rod waiting in the wings, her recovery period will probably only last a couple pop songs. Luckily, Madge won’t even have to search for…

Our 10 Favorite Friendship Songs

True friends understand you best and offer a solution or just a strong shoulder when life is at its worst. And they’re usually the first to celebrate with you when life is wonderful.

10 Movies, TV Shows, & Songs To Avoid During A Breakup

While I am on this “break” with the man friend (it remains unclear how long this break will last, FYI), I’ve sworn off certain movies, TV shows, and songs out of fear that they’ll make me depressed. A friend of mine went through a breakup recently and all she did was listen to Morrissey, but…

Get Your Rocks Off: Girl Talk’s Songs To Send To Your Ex-Girlfriend…

Girl Talk is a DJ with a misleading name — there’s nothing feminine or cutesy about him. He does, however, happen to be a handsome lad by the name of Gregg Gillis. Gillis’ songs are no less than genius. He manages to sample dozens of artists in a single track. On his latest album, “Feed…

Real Chick Lit: How To Date Like A Rock Star

Fantasize about dating a rock star? Who doesn’t? They’re sexy, mysterious, oh-so-dangerous, and, apparently, insanely wild in bed. If you wanna make like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Liv Tyler, or Cameron Diaz, but you’re all hung up on your lack of a Hollywood pedigree, mega-wattage celebrity, or rock star funds, fret no longer, my sister.

The Top 10 Songs About Losing Your Virginity

For most, the onset of puberty is coupled with an obsession with sex. From that point on, it’s all about the V-Card. How are you gonna lose it? Who will be your lucky swiper?

Jessica Simpson Do You Know
Simpson’s new country record, Do You Know, begs the questions, do you care? The change in sound from pop to her Texas roots is supposed to be a fresh new image for this bottle blonde, but she still sounds ready made.
