The Carrie Diaries premieres this Monday, January 14


Just in case you didn't know, The Carrie Diaries—based on the Sex and the City prequel book series by Candace Bushnell—will premiere this Monday, January 14 at 8/7c on The CW! Developed by Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (the duo behind Gossip Girl and The O.C.), the show takes place in 1984 and follows 16-year-old Carrie Bradshaw (played by AnnaSophia Robb) during her senior year of high school. After her mother's death, Carrie lands an internship at a law firm in Manhattan.



I'm so excited! Despite what whiny purists and skeptics might say, I think this looks quite promising. I'm a huge Sex and the City fan, but as most of you probably know by now, I have a soft spot for soapy teen dramas, especially the ones set in New York. Unfortunately, since The CW is pretty much the lowest-rated TV network today (no matter how many times NBC tries to snatch that title), its shows tend to be hit-or-miss when it comes to viewership, so I'm really hoping this will be successful enough to stick around for more than just one season. Plus, I need a new fashion-centric teen show in my life, now that my beloved Gossip Girl has ended. So, can I count on my American friends to make this show a hit? Also, I wonder if SJP will take a break from looking like a horse to catch the premiere. KIDDING.

Sorry, I just had to use this one more time

Now I just need a moment to swoon over Brendan Dooling, who plays Walt Reynolds, Carrie's gay friend.


God, he's so dreamy. DO NOT TELL CHACE.

And don't forget to tune into The CW this Monday at 8/7c!

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
