  Austra (Toronto-based singer/songwriter Katie Stelmanis) took the stage at Brooklyn's tiny, Glasslands Gallery in a fairly undramatic fashion, yet conjured up some dark drama during an hour-long set that was moody, broody, and beautiful. Recently signing to Domino records, she was accompanied by several others on stage, compared to Austra's typical line-up of Stelmanis, drummer Maya Postepski, and bassist Dorian Wolf.  "Young and Gay" chimed with ...

STRFKR Reptilians review

BY Laurie in Music

On their second full-length album, Reptilians (out on March 8th on Polyvinyl), Starfucker makes a solid attempt to gain notoriety for something other than their radio-unfriendly handle, but they mostly stay within familiar synth-heavy, dance-pop territory. First single “Julius” stands out for its glittery sound effects and infinitely hummable melody, while tracks like “Bury Us Alive” and “Astoria” are readymade for Friday nights ... Read More
Emma Roberts, niece of Julia Roberts, and Dave Franco, brother of James Franco, both starred in MTV’s Supervideo. In an attempt to resurrect the music video, collaborators, MTV and Mean Magazine have created a Supervideo series using great directors, awesome music, big stars, and an artistic approach. Directed by Patrick Hoelck, this supervideo is a mini movie, rather than a music video, that plays over Cults’ “Go Outside.”  Roberts ... Read More

Atlanta grime-rock masters, The Black Lips, announced a month of additional dates to their already packed North American tour in support of their forthcoming album. The album is produced by Amy Winehouse hit maker Mark Ronson, a far cry from the directly to tape analog recordings of their 2007 album, Good Bad Not Evil. As the Vice blog noted, it's "the most anticipated collaboration since Sid and Nancy." Infamous for puking on stage, the Black Lips are giving you ... Read More
"Who is opening for Interpol?" I think I heard that 10 times while waiting for the School of Seven Bells / Interpol show @ Radio City Music Hall to begin on Thursday night. These days my statuesque gods in 3-piece suits tend to draw the Burning Man mob. (Remember Kelly'sreview?) So, of course I smelled skunk weed. And the dude who sat next to me played air drums during their entire set. But the real heartbreaker? Some of these people were unfamiliar with School ... Read More

I cannot get Jessie J’s debut single, “Do it Like a Dude” out of my head ever since I heard it last night, and I won’t be surprised if it becomes an instant club hit (especially at lesbian night at the local gay bar). Jessie J has been singing professionally from the age of 11, when she was cast in an Andrew Loyd Webber musical. Ever since, she’s been penning songs for artists including Justin Timberlake (who calls her “the best ... Read More
 I love a good dis battles. It's a spectacle of both ribaldry and talent that is sweeter than the normal tabloid infused Pitt-Jole-Aniston love triangle, because the participants of the rivalry actually partake in the dissin' and the audience gets to cheer and boo from the internet sidelines. Plus, we get to invest in a love or hate fan relationship that, if lucky, can last us a life time. I still draw lines when it comes to MC Lyte and Antoinette , and that ... Read More
