Although she is a busy lady, and in the midst of a tour, St. Vincent's Annie Clark took some time to chit chat with our writer Ned Hepburn about fashion, minivans, and song stylings. Here's what happened:  Annie Clark is a funny girl, who talks with the kind of soft yet engaging purr that makes you forget there's anybody else in the room but her. She's charmingly self-aware in the exact opposite way that so many 'cool music people' so often are. She's the anti-Bono, the anti-Tori Amos; she has more in common with Steve Martin than Coldplay's Chris Martin. She's just patently adorable. Read More

Hell's Belles

BY Intern Stephanie V. in Music

The Black Belles are infectious and spooky with a 1970s influenced vibe. In a sense, they are putting out some pretty slamming, perfect beats. Sporting locks of midnight black hair and matching hats. The band is on the Third Man Records label and their debut video is directed by Jack White.   For some edgy female vocals with an all-girl band, check out their single, "What Can I Do?"   So, what are you going to do? Check out the video below and their 7" single is available on Third Man Records, iTunes, and you know, your local record store. Read More

Well, if you think you've got a shot at figuring out who the subject of Carly Simon's  "You're So Vain" is in the form of a music video, it is!  People have been speculating who the rock'n'roll classic is about since the song hit airwaves back in 1973 and Carly is giving her fans a chance to finally put the rumors to rest.  Fans and filmmakers are encouraged to submit original videos to accompany either the original or newly recorded version of "You're So Vain," featured on her critically-acclaimed album Never Been Gone.

To make your Friday a little more fun, we have the new video from Gemma Ray, a wonderful UK songstress, whose album Lights Out, Zoltar! was deemed one of the best in 2009 by our own Laurie Henzel.

Screaming Females, one of our favorite bands on Don Giovanni Records, released a compilation of their singles a few days ago called ... Singles. We ended up being pretty jazzed about it, so  we had our writer Erica Varlese whip up a review. Here it is:  As the Jersey saying goes, “We pump our fists, not our gas.” And Screaming Females is fist-pumpin’ music. Read More
