It has Sigur Rós’ cousin Disa on the front cover! This indie folk album is far more worth than a dollar and is beautifully orchestrated. It’s like a sweet […]

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop Album Review

“Preliminaires” by Iggy Pop – It’s funny to hear this crazy godfather of punk go slow-mo, sounds like a bad heroin overdose. Naw, but really, Iggy and The Stooges have always been one of my favorite bands, much respect to Iggy, but I’m not too keen on this album. I like “Je sais que tu […]

Scarlett Johansson Going for a Second Album–Oh No

It was bad enough that she had to taint the lyrical genius of Tom Waits with “Anywhere I Lay My Head”, but now the curvdacious Hollywood starlet is back again giving it another go with yet another album.

The Dead Weather

It cracks me up how so many bands do the dark, dreary, I’m gonna scare you kind of steez. That whole look has become quite stale. Nonetheless, The Dark Weather should be pretty badass .  If you haven’t heard, Jack White (of White Stripes) has formed yet another power project, consisting of Alison Mosshart (of […]

Iggy Pop going Jazzy? Never know what’s gonna come out of this crazy bloke.

The Last Shadow Puppets

Retro, seductive, smooth, melodic, hip, flowy, sensual…. I could conjure up plenty more adjectives to describe for this record but I’ll refrain: The Last Shadow Puppets. For anyone whose familiar with the fantastic foppish foursome The Arctic Monkeys (if you’re not for christ’s sake get the hell outta the cave!), you’ll recognize instantly Alex Turner’s […]

The Black Diamond Heavies Vs The Black Keys

I do love The Black Keys (as if anyone who reads this blog religiously couldn’t tell) but I do love the raw gritty blues of The Black Diamond Heavies. Although Dan Auerbach helped produce these guys, many are saying they surpass the Keys. Hmmm … I came by this blog and the writer wrote: “The […]
