OK, seriously, what is happening? The nineties are back; at first I had my doubts about this becoming no bigger than some fair-weather trend. But, as of lately it appears that 2011 is the new 1997.  Several artist that were huge back in ye olde 97’ are releasing new albums that are surprisingly, killing it. One of which is, Da Brat. She is back with vengeance (braided hair aside) and collaborating with another 90’s mega-producer/rapper Jermaine Dupree and, they are ripping on Chris Brown. Hard. Read More
Sometimes I really hate feeling so much. As a recently divorced lady, I don't want to feel a goddamn thing right now. No, thanks. I'd rather work. That's it. So when I took my seat at Radio City Music Hall to see Explosions in the Sky on April 6, I had no idea that for the next hour and 15 minutes the past several years with my ex-huz would flash in my mind like a dusty old film projector spinning reels of the good, the bad, the end.

Hey ladies, she’s back!

I just love what Merrill Garbus is doing with her band, TUne-Yards. With her way out tribal sounds and kooky face paints, the energy is just fantastic! She's clearly fearless, and I can't wait to see her perform live. Check out this amazing video for Bizness, off her latest album, w h o k i l l on 4AD records, then go see her if she comes to your area. Read More
This clip from the forthcoming Hot Sauce Committee is hilarious! When I heard there was a new Beastie's video, I thought "it would be cool if they had actors playing them, like that Jon Spencer video way back in the day," and guess what?  That's exactly what they did, starring Will Farrell, Jack Black, Elijah Wood (doing a spot on Ad-Rock!), John C. Reilly (Come to think of it, John C. Reilly was in that Blues Explosion video too! ),  Danny McBride and Seth Rogan to name a few.  PS. Read More
