The Untimely Tragedy of Christina Aguilera



Oh, Christina. Remember when you were a barely-legal ingenue, fresh from the hills of Pennsylvania and just a few years after you probably got cooties from Ryan Gosling back at the Disney studios? Then you turned into Fred Durst's plaything. Then you turned into X-Tina. X-rated. X-posed. Possibly x-rayed.

Fast forward several years later. You're a mom, divorced from the cutest guy ever, and since then you've forgotten the words to the national anthem on the most watched program of all time and you fell onstage about a week later with the camera barely catching your fall. Now this. Now. This.

You just got arrested for public drunkenness.

I believed in you, Christina. We all believed in you. The American people believed in you. And not only did you believe in you to succeed and fair better than Britney, we ROOTED for you. WE ALL ROOTED FOR YOU. The only thing coming close to fairing than Britney is failing better than her, and you're doing that right now. On our computer screens. Waking up first thing in the morning and reading how "the little girl with the big voice" was too drukn to function was disappointing, disorienting, and...dis...believing? Whatever. All you need to do now is shave your head bald and call yourself "Larry" and I think we're all set.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
