Brooklyn-based blues rock band She Keeps Bees dropped a new single from their forthcoming album recently, and the video for the song is just as beautifully surreal and eerie as the single itself.
"Is What It Is" comes out on the album Eight Houses on September 16th from the label Future Gods, which will be the band's fourth full-length album. If you're into some soulful, dark, and dreamy music with goose bump-inducing vocals, the album is ... Read More

I was binge watching some of my fave shows on Saturday night/Sunday morning when I checked Twitter and noticed my feed EXPLODING. I scroll down only to find out that the very anticipated, much rumored collab between Beyonce and Nicki Minaj had arrived earlier than expected.
With Nicki's push-back for Anaconda, we all expected it to come on Monday, but you know Bey, in that you don't actually know her. She doesn't care about our sleep schedule, she's all in ... Read More

Hilary Duff has new music and this is what dreams are made of! While you may have thought her music career was “so yesterday,” in the seven years since she’s produced an album she’s had babies, gotten a divorce and then there was that whole Aaron Carter still loving her thing (oh, brother). She’s been busy, okay?
And while her vocals on her new single “Chasing the Sun” sound a bit more like Paris Hilton’s than I can remember, I’m ... Read More

This music is straight bangin’, pun intended.
Macy Gray is back with a music video that’s as dusky and devilish as her unmistakable voice, and twice as deadly. The video for “Bang Bang” is Bond-style debauchery at its sexiest with slow motion high-stakes poker, complete with dirty dancing, and some killer call girls in killer lingerie. The new single is off Gray’s upcoming eighth studio album “The Way,” out October ... Read More

Jenny Lewis’ new album The Voyager dropped yesterday. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. We reported on the amazing moustache-filled cross-dressing wonderment that was her music video for “One of the Guys,” starring our ladyloves Kristen Stewart, Anne Hathaway and Brie Larson, but the day is finally here. THE ALBUM HAS DROPPED.
Former Rilo Kiley front woman Jenny Lewis has produced her third solo album in six years — a perfectly polished musical ... Read More

Quoth the Raveonettes, “Give me more,” and they are doing just that. The Raveonettes released their new album Pe’Ahi earlier this week and it’s safe to say this haunting dreamy album is the perfect soundtrack for your transition from summer to fall, especially the single “Summer Ends.”
(trigger warning: don't watch this video if you are prone to photosensitive epilepsy).
They just released new lyric videos for a few of ... Read More

Lana Del Rey has opened up about a particular song from her album Ultraviolece. "Fucked My Way Up to the Top" is the 9th track on the most recent album, and the song hinges on the narrator’s pursuit of stardom and using sex to achieve it.
Knowing that Lana is an artist who writes songs based on voyeuristic nostalgia, I assumed that elements of this track (including lyrics like: ‘I’m a dragon, you’re a whore’ and ‘What I ... Read More

The Casket Girls, a three-piece from Georgia, is one of the very few bands with a creation story as dreamlike as its music. With a sound that’s equal parts soulful and grungy, dreamy and haunting, the Casket Girls really hold their own in the realm of what their record label accurately dubs “eerie-pop." They aren’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a summer soundtrack, but Strange Majik is here to change that.
In their remix of ... Read More

Zayn Malik’s Instagram is no longer private and my heart has burst into a thousand pieces.
I’m a 21-year-old woman. I am also the biggest Directioner in existence. And while I’m a Directioner across the board, I have a very VERY special place in my heart for Zayn Malik.
I’ve been basically betrothed to Zayn Malik since I first witnessed him and his buddies in their “What Makes You Beautiful” music video in 2011. I fell ... Read More
