  Can't get enough of hip hop? Neither can I, but of course, we as ladies, cant help but to notice that "the game" is dominated by mostly men. There have been some females that rocked a mic and represented for the girls in the past -Queen Latifah, Salt 'N' Peppa, Eve, and lest we forget, the self-proclaimed Harajuku Barbie herself, Nicki Minaj. But those are just some of the names that have been shining in the spotlight. Is lesser known hip hop more your scene? Searching for that sparkly diamond in the rough of the underground? Well, look no further. Read More
"It's been said that behind every man, is an even stronger woman" is the opening line of the shout out that DJ diva, Jasmine Solano, got on Jay-Z's lifestyle website, Life + Times, recently. The Philadelphia-born, Brooklyn-based artist who just got off Wiz Khalifa's "Deal or No Deal" tour shares just some of the things on her list of favorites, ranging from chocolate to travel. As if that wasn't enough to get our hearts all fluttery on this girl-crush worthy, multi-talented super girl, she also offers a free download to her latest mixtape, Electric Punanny. Read More
Drew Barrymore in the director's chair, Maeby Fünke as a gang member, and an epic romance between young, troubled lovers. By way of movie magic, all of this was made a reality in Best Coast's new music video for their hit song, "Our Deal." Though just four minutes long, the ultra-mini film is packed with action, tears, forbidden love, and hair worth pushing your lover off a building for. The video keeps the romantic, dreamy tones of Best Coast's song, but borrows heavily from the fight scenes and attitudes of West Side Story and the Outsiders. Read More
I’ve got big love for this sisters-brother trio from London. I especially dig the downtempo ska vibe of this first single from their upcoming new album, Smoking in Heaven. Kinda makes me wanna skank, real slow like. Plus these ladies have a wicked fierce look: serious eyeliner, pompadours, and vintage galore. They even recorded their record entirely the old-fashioned way, using ribbon microphones and analogue tape. That’s dedication. Read More

Rad New Band: Bleached

BY Annelise S in Music

  When noise/punk band Mika Miko split up, telephone-microphone hybrid fans were left heartbroken across the sprawl of greater Los Angeles (and beyond). Mika Miko were known for raising hell in DIY settings and venues, especially at downtown L.A.'s The Smell, where they played their final show in January 2010. Today, however, I am thrilled to inform everyone of Mika Miko's resurrection of sorts. No, the band is not back together. But the group's sister duo, Jessica and Jennifer Clavin, just released a single from their new project, Bleached. Read More
