Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week of October 28th 2008

MUSIC

  • Pink Funhouse
    Pink’s post-divorce record drops today, but we’ve already be bopping our head to her single “So What,” which can pretty much been found on the radio at all times on one station or another. Of all of Pink’s albums, this one feels the most personal, she’s exercising the demons from her divorce.

Our First Crush On An American Idol Contestant

I may be an American Idol addict (not to mention prone to having crushes on wussy musicians) but I rarely develop a “thing” for any of the contestants — I was never a Claymate, nor did last season’s Chris Richardson have a shot at usurping my love for Justin Timberlake. But this season, that trend may change. Meet Josiah Leming. He lives in his car! (Don’t worry, he likes it that way.) He travels from state to state, playing small bars and music halls, singing his own songs and playing the guitar. He’s barely legal, but that didn’t stop my heart from melting the second he got in front of the judges — though he’s from the South, he’s got an vaguely English twang in his voice when he sings, and is clearly influenced by cool Brit bands like Snow Patrol. We’ve often thought that AI would benefit from trying to find the next indie singer-songwriter and Josiah may be it! And by the way, if he gets tired of living in that car, I’ve got a guest bedroom he can shack up in anytime! [You Tube]

UPDATE: Catherine is officially in love. She’s watched the video twice now. Keep reading »
