A couple in Southern England has been seriously putting the WHAM! BAM! in the Thank you ma’am! According to Kelly “The Screamer” Norris’ neighbors, the 29-year-old comes louder than a freight train. Even after the other apartment residents obtained a court order in 2006 to lower the volume on her bumpin’ music, slammin’ headboard, and…

He Says/She Says: M83’s “Kim and Jessie”

French band M83 sounds kind of ’80s, which is what summertime should sound like, in my opinion. I had Nathan take a listen to their synthy song “Kim and Jessie.” Too bad neither of us can roller-skate, otherwise, we’d totally replay this video over and over and over and over and over until…

What Makes Songs Ubiquitous

Do you recognize the name Daniel Powter? I didn’t. He was the guy who sang the song “Bad Day,” which you’ve heard everywhere in the last couple years (“‘Cause you had a bad day, you’re taking one down/You sing a sad song just to turn it around…”). Since Daniel Powter’s not really famous, and “Bad…

BOOKS
Life With My Sister Madonna by Christopher Ciccone
Surprisingly enough, the thing we’re excited the most about this week is a book…okay, so it’s not War and Peace obvi, but it is about Madonna! Written by her brother, (who is gay of course), it’s supposed to be a tell-all that shows the real way…

The Daily Hotness: Nas

Nas’s latest album was released today after much ado about the title. He ended up going with the subtle Untitled. Maybe he toned it down because the songs do the talking.

Rock-A-Bye Baby: Hookup Music For The Kiddies!

When it’s sexy time, it’s also time to take off your clothes and put on some sweet tunes — like the Pixies, right? Cause you know when I put on the Surfer Rosa record it is time to get busy. Sadly, now my hip, hot record collection favorites are being marketed towards new parents so…

Albert Hammond Jr. releases his second record sans the Strokes — Como Te Llama?, or, “What’s Your Name?” in Spanish. If you didn’t already know the guitar hero’s name, you won’t forget him and his sonic lovin’ after this record. Softer, sweeter, and joyous (especially for a hipster), Hammond…

Obama’s iPod

Your musical tastes say a lot about you, blah, blah, blah, so it’s kind of a big deal that in the current issue of Rolling Stone, Barack Obama divulges some of what’s on his iTunes. Obama says he has “pretty eclectic tastes,” and his playlist includes the Rolling Stones, Elton John, Earth, Wind & Fire,…

Top Five Menstrual Songs

I took a lot of women’s studies classes in college and even spelled women as “womyn” for a while, but I’ve never quite understood menstrual art. I have a lil’ soft spot for all the artists on this list, but it was loads of humorous fun pulling the lyrics for our Top Five Menstrual Songs:…

The Daily Hotness: Justin Nozuka

This morning I was watching VH1 on accident (I am more of a MTV kind-of-girl) and this video from some dude named Justin Nozuka came on the tube. He sings those kind of songs that you sing around a beach bonfire — like Jack Johnson or Ben Harper-type jams. I went to college in Santa…

Goddamn you half-emo guys, you do it to me every time.

The Jonas Brothers Vs. Hanson: What’s The Diff?

Everywhere I look, those dang Jonas Brothers are there, torturing me with memories. Memories of what, you may ask? Hanson. That painfully annoying threesome of brothers from the ’90s who performed that song “Mmm Bop”. Just like the Jonas Brothers, the young one was sweet and adorable, the middle one was the one the girl…

Get Your Rocks Off: Ohbijou’s “Frisky On Land & Water” Playlist

The perfect Sunday, in my opinion, would involve eating a delicious breakfast of freshly made waffles, exchanging a few kisses, and reading the newspaper (all without leaving bed, of course). The soundtrack to this perfect Sunday morning would be the Toronto band Ohbijou. The seven-piece group plays delightful music that’s quiet but not too quiet…

We’ve Still Got It All On Tape

Nothing says love like the hum of an analog mix tape crackling through the songs you like to make out to. Sigh. You know it’s hot and heavy when a dude takes the time to tape sounds to seduce you. Like the frail technology that can get easy chewed up by a player, most relationshi…

Let’s Make A Muxtape, Shall We?

This week, I decided to get a little CRAZY with our Muxtape and uploaded 12 songs that has S-E-X in the title. Scandalous, no? I cannot promise this will be a mixtape to accompany actual love-making, but I hope you enjoy it for the next five days, nonetheless. And please oh please, create your own!
