The Beastie Boys dance-battle themselves in their new music video “Make Some Noise” which was released yesterday as an extended trailer for their upcoming short film “Fight For Your Rights – Revisited.” The video features Elijah Woods, Danny McBride and Seth Rogen as young Beastie Boys doppelgangers wreaking havoc and partying in the streets of Brooklyn amongst star studded walk-ons from the likes of Amy Poehler, Will Arnett, and Steve Buscemi. The action stops abruptly when the young Beastie Boys come across the time machine from Back to the Future. Read More
If you’re livin’ in LA, I would recommend clearing your schedule on May 7th. Some of our favorite gals, The Living Sisters and Zooey Deschanel, will be covering the songs of another personal favorite, Patsy Cline! Does it get any better than that? Didn’t think so. In celebration of country western music’s most distinctive voice, these contemporary songbirds will pay tribute to Patsy’s “I Fall To Pieces” and “Crazy” among others. Read More
Brooklyn-based trio Vivian Girls’ music just feels so, well, Brooklyn—a little gritty, rough around the edges, with lots of heart, and lots going on. I love Brooklyn. So much, in fact, that I live there atop the largest oil spill in U.S. history. No, I don't drink the water. Anyway, when I saw the trio of Cassie Ramone, Katy Goodman, and Fiona Campbell (new drummer!) play at New York City’s Webster Hall recently, it was evident that the ladies don't seem to care much about projecting a slick image. It's refreshing actually. No lace, striped tights, or leather. Read More

MNDR "Cut Me Out"

BY Eileen Milman in Music

  MNDR is a hot electro-pop duo, and their new video for their single "Cut Me Out," is awesome. MNDR is made up of the famous Amanda Warner and Peter Wade. Amanda  is well known for her collaboration with Mark Ronson & The Business Intl., for the song "Bang Bang Bang."  She worked with director Tim Saccenti, to create the imagery that meshes perfectly with the thumping synths and Amanda's self-harmonies. Look for more MNDR in our June/July Music issue! You can download the single for free here: http://www.greenlabelsound. Read More
Yes. This five-minute gem of a video gets everything right.  Released in 1997, the group is made up of Lili, Tahmineh and Sepideh - three Iranian-American ladies who reside in California but sing in Farsi. Apparently, the group is the first all-women Iranian band. The single title  "Khorshid Khanoom" means Lady Sun in Farsi, and the video reflects the ladies' Earth Mother sensibility. With different colored hair pieces representing three of the four elements (air, fire and earth) the video shares aesthetic sentiments with the 1987 Cher vehicle, the Witches of Eastwick. Read More
