Fans of Björk know that the only thing predictable about her work is constant change. The Icelandic multi-instrumentalist’s last album, 2011’s Biophilia, was a conceptual (and somewhat bloodless) multimedia project, but Vulnicura is a deeply intimate chronicle of heartbreak.
Written in real time, these nine tracks detail an excruciating break-up with her longtime partner. Although it ends on a hopeful note, Vulnicura puts the listener through the ... Read More

I never really got into the idea of Valentines Day. I'd like to like it, but I just...don't. In fact, last night the boy and I had our annual V-Day-plans convo. To say the least, we came up empty handed. However, this morning my prayers for St.Valentine to f-off were answered. Search no more for restaurant reservations;Your plans are right here:

I’m a sucker for 3 part harmonies but coupled with lyrics like “hormones stole ... Read More

As you may have heard, Karen O came out with her first solo album, Crush Songs, in early September. The songs on the album mostly concern themselves with the emotions that O was experiencing at the start of fall. O reported on her website that at the time she was crushing a lot, and unsure if she’d ever fall in love again. “They are the soundtrack to what was an ever continuing love crusade. I hope they keep you company on yours.”

As if Sleater-Kinney’s ‘No Cities To Love’ reunion (after a looong ten years) wasn’t enough, the beginning of their US tour is likely to have ... Read More

Full disclosure: We're pretty major Madonna fans around these parts, and often find Rihanna to be a bit disappointing (that has not, however, stopped us from jamming out to her music from time to time). So when we came across this RiRi cover of "Vogue," we were prepared to have mixed feelings about it.
No surprises here: We're on the fence—but what do you think?
