LA’s Fool’s Gold has come out with their official video to their amazingly awesome song, “Surprise Hotel.” It’s wet n’ wild and looks like heaps of fun! Especially for the old cheesy farts frolicking in the video with bikini clad babes. [youtube= http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W0wPNow3ymc] Their vibrant dance anthem “Surprise Hotel” is almost five minutes of sheer […]

Some people say indie rock is not made for head phones—that’s where the real test of indie music lies. Cymbals Eat Guitars – press play: “And the Hazy Sea” soars with guitars and edgy vocals.

“11-11” by Rodrigo y Gabriela – Album Review

“Falling” by 2020Soundsystem – Album Review

I definitely heard a lil Miami Vice in […]

“Break Up” by Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn – Album Review

Quick as a “one pump chump,” Scarlett Johansson & Pete Yorn’s new album “Break Up” is short and sweet. With nine tracks of fun, heartfelt duets, Yorn’s enchanting vocals are the definite player in this album while Johansson cruises along the sidelines just waiting to get called in for some action. I’d actually like to […]
