Donita Sparks, that crazy lead lady from L7, is back with a new band called the Stellar Moments.  They played Highline Ballroom in NYC Saturday night to promote their new release, Transmiticate. Though it’s been years since she became an onstage legend by throwing a used tampon into the audience at the Reading Festival in ’92 (gross or hilarious—you decide), Sparks was still a total firecracker onstage.  Shimmying like a satanic go-go dancer, and headbanging like a total badass, she even straddled and rode an...

Those lovable kooky sisters, Coco Rosie are back with another amazingly freak filled video, "God Has a Voice and She Speaks Through Me." Be on the look out for a cool limited-edition picture disc 7" released on 7/8/08 from Touch and Go. ...

This book was fell into my lap and captured my attention like an old family album or school year book. Punk Pioneers, a photography book shot by Jenny Lens, doesn't read like a coffee table book but more like a yearbook, given the, at least to this girly who's into punk, famous faces in it. The Ramones, the Screamers, Debbie Harry, Van Halen and Joan Jett are in it. The Sex Pistols even make an appearance. Lens's images have a causual air about them,...

One of my favorite lady artists is Becky Stark. The songs she makes with her band Lavender Diamond are not only beautiful, but the message is always positive and full of love. looks like the band has made a secret movie to accompany their Matador records  release Imagine our Love. If you are in LA, you are very lucky because they are having what promises to be a wonderful evening of performances on Tues. May 27th  called Psychedelic Healing Visions: A Love Song and Dance...

OK, Callie turned us on to this Florida rapper Riskay awhile ago, and now she's got a video for everyones favorite song about that worrisome cheating boyfirend. The chorus is ridiculoulsy catchy, I promise if you hear this at least once, you wiil not be able to get it out of your head. NY Magazine calls it an instant classic. Check out Callie's interview with Riskay in the June issue of BUST, on newsstands in a few weeks. ...

There seems to be an abundance of good music coming from the Continent these days, with Duffy and Adele from the UK, Yelle and Uffie from France, and these guys (also from the UK) which are on heavy rotation here at the office. enjoy! ...

In the battle to be the next Amy Winehouse two contestants have emerged as frontrunners.  In this corner, I give you Duffy: And in this corner, we have Adele:    Personally, I think Adele's kind of a snoozefest and Duffy's got the better chance at the title, but what do you think? ...

I love the Black Keys, their latest record Attack and Release (Nonesuch) is amazing, here is the video for Your Touch. I think one of the reasons I love them so much is that singer Dan Auerbach sounds exactly like Paul Rodgers from the 70's band Bad Company. Below is a BC clip from 1975, check out the crop top and white bells, and those might just be clogs on his feet. YES!!  ...

I'm a little embarrassed to admit to watching American Idol, but it was really great having Dolly on the show tonight. Of course she is too nice to "judge anyone"-she is just so sweet you cant help but love her! And for once the kids did pretty good with their versions of her songs. Unfortunately my favorite "Coat of Many Colors" which always gets me a little verklempt, was sung by my least favorite, Kristy lee,  and it did not wow. Australian Michael was great,...
