   Pardon the red face, I was rapping like craz. In the pic above we were tearing up some "Ignition". Calvin also did Snoop which pretty much secured my crush on him. Oh, perhaps you don't know about Calvin yet (that's right first name basis). We reviewed him in the new issue of BUST, which just dropped on BUST today and should be arriving in mailboxes around the world shortly. His debut album is so freakin infectious it hurts. It is no news flash that...

A few months ago, a mysterious email was sent out from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs  inviting fans to a free and hush-hush performance at the Glasslands Gallery in Brooklyn. There were two performances, each with a capacity of just 100 people and the second show being exclusive to just the ladies-- no vagina, no show. That night, they came, they passed out Zorro masks, and they fucken rocked. Like me, you have no excuse to not have been there. But lucky for us, both shows...

I've lost my marbles for Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears!!! This past weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of getting shot with a beautiful dose of cinematic glam rock when I was introduced to the sound of Brooklyn based band, Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears. Led by Brian Scary, the band's sound is reminiscent of Queen, The Beatles and Bowie, and also super theatrical like the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Each member was dressed like a character from an old horror film, and...

I've always loved Melora and her cello band Rasputina, but this latest cd Oh Perilous World is probably one of her best. Here she's teamed up with that other 1800's lovin' gal -the one and only Dame Darcy for the video for 1816, The Year Without a Summer. You can also check out the very fine tune Cage in a Cave on our Media Taster to the left. Enjoy the old timey splendour. ...

There has been a whole slew of fun dance/rock/disco bands coming out in the last few years, like Daft Punk, LCD Soundsystem, Justice and Simian Mobile Disco, but my current fave of the bunch is 23 year old Calvin Harris from the UK. His mix of juicy slabs of funk and goofy falsetto lyrics on his new release, I Created Disco, (out here in Sept.) is simply irresistable. And in an absolutele genius marketing/promotional move, he's asked his UK fans to stage simultaneuos house parties...

Okay, so, yeah, I'm totes obsessed with Flight of the Conchords , and always enjoy the songs in their episodes-- those funny, pitch-perfect takeoffs on various music genres. But last night's song-- a mock '60s French pop number, whose lyrics consisted of only those French words that someone who'd studied it in high school would be likely to remember--is so good, I'd gladly listen to it even if it weren't funny. Oh, and the cute  video, complete with bicycles, umbrellas, and a picnic -- c'est...

How friggin awesome is MIA!??  She is just so badass.  ...
