Love letters: what could possibly be more fun and wonderful to send or receive?! They are truly one of the world’s most romantic gestures of all time. There is simply nothing like taking the time to appreciate your love interest by allowing your heart to flow through your fingertips when you connect pen to paper. It doesn’t have to matter if it’s the tingly bubble-gum butterflies or the deeply rooted unconditional devotion that we feel towards ... Read More
The indie rock band from Hamilton, Ontario, Young Rival has released the very first random dot autostereogram music video for their single Black Is Good. In other words, it’s the first damn Magic Eye music video ever, and it just blew my mind!
I finally gave it a view this morning, and trust me, I totally realize how silly I must have looked sitting in the office staring intensely at the snowy screen of my computer.
But just like all those cross-eyed hours ... Read More

You should already be a learned fan of St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Clark), synth-y solo artist extraordinaire – but in case you're not, the singer's new self-titled album is set to hit stores this February 24th. Already carrying heavy stamps of approval from Robin Hilton and Bob Boilen at NPR, the new set of songs is highly influenced by our current digital culture; there's a dance-y bass line ribboning through singles like below's "Digital ...

After several delays, Lana Del Rey’s highly anticipated short film Tropico has been released, and it does not disappoint. Featuring Lana Del Rey and Shaun Ross, Tropico begins with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and chronicles their descent into crime and poverty in Los Angeles after eating the forbidden fruit.
Tropico, essentially three connected music videos, isn’t necessarily a major creative shift for the songstress. She is known for her ... Read More
Like everyone else and their mother, I can't seem to get enough of the reigning teen queen Lorde, who shot to stardom after her song "Royals" went viral this past year. Her new single "Team" and consequent video do not disappoint, as both serve as a personal and heart wrenching look at teenagedom with a catchy beat that will lead to one person dance parties in bedrooms across the world.
The video follows Lorde as a kind of cult leader for a band of ... Read More

Everybody's imaginary best friend, Solange, just released a vid for her single "Lovers in the Parking Lot", and it's just as good as you'd hoped it'd be. In it, she shows off some pretty serious 90s fashions (hello and holy shit, light-up shoelaces) while she wanders around a semi-abandoned Houston mall. Suffice to say, nobody's ever made dancing around an abandoned mall seem like so much fun. The track is a retro R&B number that's already begun to wedge ... Read More
Ah, I wish summer wasn’t over because Tangerine’s "Feel This Way" would’ve been my summer jam! It’s soft, relaxed, and makes me feel that every moment should be cherished. It’s a song that you could play at a party, or even put on a “chill-out/study” playlist (as a former college student, this was the biggest challenge of my life).
With dream-like shots of friends sitting in a park drinking sangria, to a crowd dancing to ... Read More
When I first peeked at JT’s new video on Youtube the first two comments for “Tunnel Vision” were “This porn has good music” followed by “It’s not porn, it’s art.”
Let me save you a little bit of time: it’s neither.
What it is, in fact, is Justin Timberlake being totally gross and weird for waaaay too long, in ways I never thought was possible. It makes Dick-in-a-Box look dignified.
Women crawling ... Read More

OMG, this video. OMG, I love it. But really, though. Oh My Goodness is a Maine-born experimental hip-hop duo now based in Brooklyn and they've just released their latest video for "OMG OMG." It seems pretty simple: black and white film, just the two of them (Therese Workman and Tyler Wood) performing, nothing too fancy. Then the images get all warped and mirror-y and shit gets realer.
The same idea can be applied to the song. It starts off with a catchy enough ... Read More
