RIP White Stripes 2/2/2011

Guess I will never fulfill my dreams of finally seeing the White Stripes in concert. Jack and Meg have announced they will no longer be making any music together, essentially they want to go out with a bang. Now excuse me while I go cry myself to sleep in the corner to the tune of “Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground.”


LISTEN: Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers”

Yet another track leak from Lykke Li’s upcoming album Wounded Rhymes out March 1st. We’ve loved all the tracks so far, what about you?

NEWS: Gorillaz to Release Free Album on Christmas

Oh what technology can do. The Gorillaz let the cat out of the bag about their new album that will be available for free download Christmas day (Merry effin Christmas!) on their website. Get this, they wrote and recorded the entire album on an iPad. Cra-zay! Mark your calendars for this event and keep checking out the Gorillaz website for little free fun downloads everyday until then!

New Artist Alert: Celebration

The Baltimore based band recently caught my attention on another blog (I Guess I’m Floating) and the more I listened to their music the more I want to hear. The band consists of three members: Katrina Ford, Sean Antanaitis and David Bergander. Their upcoming album Hello Paradise will be released digitally and on vinyl through Friends Records out of Baltimore and consists of some great psychedelic songs – each representing a card in a virtual tarot deck. Crazy. Cool. Awesome! Although the digital version will be given away for free at Friends Records, I highly recommend purchasing the vinyl. The sound of this album is perfect for listening on a record player…thats just my opinion, take it or leave it. I have lots of opinions and they are all right. Anyway, check out “Battles” below from Celebration’s upcoming release and if you want to hear more go to Friends Records. And is it just me or is there parts of the song where Katrina sounds like Grace Slick?

NEWS: Britney Spears to Release New Album in March

Are you excited for her new album?

LISTEN: Black Eyed Peas – “Do It Like This”

I hate to admit that this new Black Eyed Peas song gets me boppin in my cubicle…that doesn’t mean it’s the greatest song ever. It’s definitely one million times better than the previously leaked track “The Time (Dirty Bit)” but it still feels like they are doing everything safe and generic. Anyway listen below and let us know what you think. Like it? Hate it? Or do you feel like me – it’s good to dance to and thats it. And P.S. why do I feel like Fergie has a countdown in every song??amirite?
