REVIEW: ZAZIE: CYCLO

It’s funny — I can review music in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Greek, etc, but when it comes to French I always struggle. The problem is that I know some French, but I’m far from being fluent, so I understand just enough of the lyrics to get a general idea of what a...

REVIEW: JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: THE 20/20 EXPERIENCE

It’s hard to believe it’s been just over six years since Justin Timberlake released his massively successful album FutureSex/LoveSounds. I often found myself wishing he’d release a new album during that time, especially when I’d see him in mediocre movies like In Time, Friends with Benefits and Black Snake Moan. To be fair,...

REVIEW: THE VACCINES: BAD MOOD EP

And so I was shocked when reviews of Exile, their just-released sophomore effort, started surfacing and were almost 90% negative. By the time...

LYRIC VIDEO: PARAMORE: “STILL INTO YOU”

Here’s the official lyric video for Paramore’s new single “Still Into You” from their upcoming self-titled album. I quite like it.  It’s definitely something different from them, but I think it’s great that they’re trying new things.  It seems like they’re really feeling inspired again.  This song’s energy is infectious....

SINGLE REVIEW: NATALIA KILLS: “PROBLEM”

It begins with what sounds like a military air-raid siren before a massive beat begins stomping all over the place like it’s a lost Ice Cube track from 1991. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think it was a new hip-hop track. But wait — she actually does kind of rap this...
