#albumoftheday / REVIEW: THE DOLLYROTS: A DOLLYROTS CHRISTMAS EP

“The Dollyrots are a punk rock band but their CDs are very pop.” – from their bio on their Facebook info. And after listening to their new Christmas EP, I’m inclined to agree. The Los Angeles duo’s energy and tempos are very punk rock, but the hooks are so contagious that you could...

VIDEO: Jessie J – “Masterpiece”


This one has a really uplifting chorus, but the verses are a trainwreck. She sings a few lyrics then she starts going "blah, blah" and making some incomprehensible gibberish. If it wasn't for that hideous bridge we might actually like this song, but... Any song that...

#songoftheday / VIDEO: The Ready Set – “Fangz”


And now for something completely different... A slamming, electro-pop gem from The Ready Set. No, we didn't exactly see it coming either. "Fangz," as it's called, is a better EDM track than anything on David Guetta's latest album. OK, so it's not quite EDM,...

  • 1SAGAIN & JU BORA: ENDLESS WINTER
    1SAGAIN & JU BORA: ENDLESS WINTER Release Date:  12/12 Label:  Unknown I couldn't find a Wiki page in English about 1sAgain but a Luminosity page about Ju Bora states that she frequently collaborates with him. So, I'm assuming 1sAgain is the one who's doing the rapping, since that voice sounds male, and Ju Bora is […]

  • Crayon Pop, K-Much, Bob Girls, & Zan Zan: 2014 Chrome Family - A Very Special Christmas
    Crayon Pop, K-Much, Bob Girls, & Zan Zan: 2014 Chrome Family - A Very Special Christmas Release Date:  12/2/14 Label:  Chrome Family Crayon Pop + Christmas = bliss The name of this single isn't A Very Special Christmas, apparently that's the title of an album or EP that Chrome Family label artists are releasing songs […]
  • LEO IEIRI: SILLY
    LEO IEIRI: SILLY Release Date:  11/19/14 Label:  Victor Entertainment You have to admire Leo Ieiri. If for nothing else then for the fact that she writes all of her own songs. Also, she manages to put out new music as regularly as the bulk of J-Pop artists who have other people writing songs for them. […]
  • THE BARBERETTES: Carol: Hun Hun Christmas
    THE BARBERETTES: Carol: Hun Hun Christmas Release Date:  12/9/14 Label:  Sony Music If you're a fan of '60's pop music and you like Christmas music, this EP will have you jumping with joy. To be totally honest, I'd never heard of The Barberettes before randomly coming across this EP, which caught my eye because it's […]
