For me, 2011 was such an exciting year for music. Amongst the platinum selling artists, Adele‘s ’21′ was definitely a highlight for me (Yes, Jamie XX‘s remix is killer, but the originals are already beautiful). So many other fine albums finally were released by familiar artists that had huge singles the previous years (James Blake‘s [...]
Mayer Hawthorne just released an EP of cover songs called Impressions and you can get it for free. That’s right: free music! Grab it here from Stones Throw.

Anyway, it’s always a challenge to [...]
Brand spankin’ new Maylee Todd video is out for “Aerobics In Space,” directed by J. Lee Williams (1188 Films). And yeah, of course it’s just as weird as everything else she ever puts to video… so that means it’s best enjoyed while smoking something really potent.. or not. Plus, Elvis breakdancing? Yes, guy! (Just watch [...]
