REVIEW: JENNY LEWIS: THE VOYAGER

Nobody likes saying anything negative about Jenny Lewis. She’s never released a bad album and has generally been a very prolific singer/songwriter, pumping out albums every couple of years — if not more often — for well over a decade now. Until recently, that is. Her new solo album, The Voyager, comes six...

#albumoftheday / EP SPOTLIGHT: PIXIE LOTT: LAY ME DOWN EP

Pixie Lott’s new EP kicks off with her new single of the same name, “Lay Me Down,” which, like “Nasty” before it, finds the singer back in full pop mode after taking a disappointing R&B detour on her second album, Young Foolish Happy, which was far inferior to her debut, Turn It Up....

REVIEW SPOTLIGHT: ANGUS & JULIA STONE: ANGUS & JULIA STONE

As the story goes, Angus and Julia Stone were happy with their solo careers and had no plans to make another album together. Ever. They didn’t hate each other or anything like that. They simply went in two different directions musically and didn’t feel they would ever be in the same place, stylistically...

  • LEO IEIRI: JUNJO
    LEO IEIRI: JUNJO Release Date:  7/30/14 Label:  Victor Entertainment "Junjo" is among her most vibrant and infectious tunes to date, which is surely why it's being used as the ending theme for the new Dragonball Kai anime series. Singer/songwriter Leo Ieiri's new single, "純情," or "Junjo," finds her doing what she does
  • PAIPAI DEKAMI: レッツドリーム小学校 [Let's Dream Shogakko]
    PAIPAI DEKAMI: レッツドリーム小学校 [Let's Dream Shogakko] Release Date:  6/25/14 Label:  MYRD But after listening to the album, all of my preconceived notions leapt out the window and crashed to the pavement, dying when their necks were all but shattered. This one really surprised me, not unlike half of the stuff I listen to in the interest of reviewing it for y
  • ZIGZO: FOREVER YOUNG
    ZIGZO: FOREVER YOUNG Release Date:  7/1/14 Label:  Japan Crown Forever Young is ZIGZO's way of celebrating their 15th anniversary. It's also a great hits compilation that's also noteworthy because it includes a re-recording of their 1999 single "Himawari." Who the hell are ZIGZO? According to Wiki, they're a Japanese rock superg
  • MOTOHIRO HATA: ひまわりの約束 [Himawari No Yakusoku]
    MOTOHIRO HATA: ひまわりの約束 [Himawari No Yakusoku] Release Date:  8/6/14 Label:  AUCL If very mellow singer/songwriter music is your thing... I know I review more female artists than male artists here. It's been that way from day one. Why? Because I like to write about what I enjoy and I was already an active fan of many of the female artists I regularly cov
  • PUFFY: 秘密のギミーキャット ~うふふ 本当よ~
    PUFFY: 秘密のギミーキャット ~うふふ 本当よ~ Release Date:  2014 Label:  Sony Music Artist Inc. This song is insane. In many ways. Puffy, known as Puffy Amiyumi here in the States, have always been known for doing zany stuff. You never know what to expect from them. I don't think they've ever done rap, but it wouldn't surprise me one bit if that's what th
