Where the Wild Things Are Karen O And The Kids
I just saw Where the Wild Things Are. I'm not sure this soundtrack works well for the movie. It's kind of odd to see big freaky monsters with pop music and female vocalists singing. It's not bad, but …

The Resistance
Pros: Great music, lyrics, wildly inventive and creative...     Cons: ...is a fairly short album, but a great ride, nonetheless.       The Bottom Line: Any …

Jenny Lewis
I seen that she was the lead singer for Rilo Kiley and honestly I def. like her by herself. She has a fun sound and this is something I would like to listen to when Im around the house getting things …

I tested out a few tracks on them and they arent bad. I wouldnt personally listen to them but they are good enough to my ears that I can sit there and listen through their songs. The lead singers …

Where the Wild Things Are Karen O And The Kids
I saw the movie of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE when it came out in theatres in October 2009. I thought the film was a solid adaptation and expansion that remained true to the spirit of the original story …
reviewed xx (album). March 06, 2010
The xx
I fell for this album at first listen. I didn’t even have to listen all the way through; I was hooked by the first spare atmospheric guitar pluckings on the unfortunately-titled “Intro.” …

reviewed It's Blitz!. August 21, 2009
It's Blitz! Yeah Yeah Yeahs
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a band that I've always liked, but I became much more impressed with them after hearing It's Blitz! Rather than continue on their alternative rock path, they opted to take a different …

Dear Science
Mix aural traces of Africa, Europe, and New York. Approach a Radiohead solution by way of Talking Heads (or vice versa). Then drown it all in conscious-throbbing Byrneian rambling excess. The result: …
reviewed Boxer (album). June 24, 2009
The National Boxer
I wasn't sure I liked this album when I first got it in 2007; in truth, I think I wasn't ready for it. Since their 2001 debut, The National have become one of the most compelling bands in indie rock. …

Marnie Stern
the intensity and raw beauty of all of Marnie Stern's songs amaze me every time I return to her "This is it and I am it..." album.  I have never seen her live, but if it's like the album, then it …

The Bravia in the background filters white noise as I pound away on my MacBook ... what is this?  The synthy sounds of Stereo Total.  I grab the remote -- rewind.  Stereo Total's I Love …

The Blow
 The Blow is Khaela Maricich (though a dude, Jona Bechtolt, aka YACHT, plays with her sometimes). Maybe you've heard of her? She's put out a few records, mostly on K Records [a few: the Bonus Album …
