Further Proof 2012 Is Great For Music

2012 might be the next 2009 in terms of great music.

So far we got:


- Beach House
- Rufus Wainwright
- Ramona Falls
- Hot Chip
- Metric
- Fiona Apple
- No Doubt
- Garbage
- Jens Lekman
- Little Boots
- Calvin Harris


so what could make this all POSSIBLY better?



BE STILL MY CAFFEINE-ADDICTED HEART.

Apparently she's releasing THREE EPs this year. That's right:  she's pulling a Robyn.

This new song- "The Night Within"- is off the soundtrack to the art film with the SAME title. Annie, for the record, appears in it. Must see? YES.

  1. I'm definitely listening to Hot Chip, actually I just put their new stuff on. Will listen to metric then...usually a bit too rough for casual listening, but I`ve always found at least a few gems on their album before. I've been missing a Rufus Wainwright album like 2001's glorious "Poses". Fiona Apple is a must listen, although I was never a huge fan or listen to her a lot...I feel it's just something you have to listen to at least once. Beach House seemed interesting enough and I listened to them a week or se when they were being hyped last summer. I doubt Calvin Harris that fucking cunt will ever release a good album again. I liked Little Boots, she's terribly cute and I hope she keeps growing. As far as No Doubt and Garbage go, will listen, not expecting much.

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement
