So Santogold’s album dropped yesterday, and you better believe I was at the Virgin Record Store at 9:30 in the morning making sure I got my my wristband to see her perform later that night! I’m not sure what kind of performance (or person) I was expecting, but I sure didn’t get it…and that is [...]
So it seems I made a mistake on my Kid Cudi post a couple days ago. That “Old Money Vocal Edit” was not actually an official Cudi remix, so I just want to put it out there that he had nothing to do with that. However though he does have a mixtape coming out, Plain [...]
I don’t know about you, but a lot of times I find myself passing over songs the first time I hear them, maybe I’m in a rush, or looking for something in particular, but it has been happening a lot lately. Luckily for me, I usually end up hearing the song someplace and I find [...]
Trying to unsuccessfully study for my French final tomorrow. Last days of class. Just need a song to keep me relaxed. Something simple. Track by Lukas Hass from Gus Van Sant’s “Last Days”
I’m feeling a little soulful today, and Welsh singer Duffy knows just how to hit the spot. Leading off “Mercy” with an acoustic basseline that could easily be a chopped up version of the one found in “Stand By Me”, this song takes you straight back to the days of twisting and shouting.

You can find [...]
I don’t have French class for a week. Don’t expect me to think much. I like this group. Don’t have an explanation why. Enjoy.
It has been quite sometime coming, but it appears that Leon Jean-Marie will finally have an album out sometime this year. He has already opened for acts such notable acts like Amy Winehouse, Mika, and The Roots, and even worked with producer Mark Ronson. If you’re a fan of Prince I would give this Brit [...]
Hands down one of my favorite groups of 2007, The Bird and The Bee, manage to mix genres like no group I have every seen before. Their self-titled debut album was a mix of jazz, indie, electronic, pop, and even a tinge of hip-hop, packaged wonderfully into songs that effortlessly flow from genre to genre. [...]
Being hailed as the female version of Prince and Andre 3000, if your looking for music that is a little different, Janelle Monae can most certainly provide it for you. So why would a person with that kind of creativity sign to Bad Boy Records? Your guess is as good as mine, but I can’t [...]
