Bulgarian singer-songwriter Ruth Koleva's "I Don't Know Why" hails from her just-announced sophomore album, Confidence. Truth, which is scheduled for release on 3/30. It's an excellent example of what can happen when jazz and pop are blended into something that defies the unwritten rules of both genres. ...Read more

Kylie Minogue, Princess of Pop, is baaaaaacK (with a capital K for Kylie)! On her new single, "Dancing," she does what she does best: she dances and she sings about doing precisely that. (How joyous!) ...Read more
As an actress, Kat Cunning has already appeared in Dangerous Liaisons, Cirque Du Soleil's Paramour and Sleep No More. You might call her a future star of the NYC arts scene. But, in my eyes, she's already a star. I felt like I was witnessing one...Read more
Welcome back, Lily Allen. It's been a while. Well, OK, maybe only four years, but that's a long time. A woman could have four babies during that amount of time. ...Read more
The thing that makes Laure Shang one of my favorite Chinese artists is that you never know what she's going to do next. You really don't. In fact, I dare say she's one of the most unpredictable artists on the planet, which, for me, also makes her...Read more
Today the legendary Amanda Palmer unleashed the above cover of Pink Floyd's "Mother" and it's haunting us already. She came up with the moving arrangement with her composer friend Jherek Bischoff and it's every bit as emotional as Pink Floyd's original. I know that's saying a lot,...Read more
Just earlier this week I found myself wondering whatever happened to Fischerspooner. They were one of my favorite electronic music duos several years ago but they've been absent from the scene for quite a while now. Well, it turns out they've been cooking up something good, which we're...Read more
"I know that you would want it if I could sink my teeth into you," sing Aly & AJ on their icy hot new single "Take Me." The fact that the song is uber-catchy alone makes it sufficient for a song of the day posting, but we have...Read more
Snoop Dogg is the man. No, not the police. The other man, the cool one, the coolest motherfucker in the world. So, when he drops a laid back trap track like "Trash Bag," we take notice. The just released video has everything you could want in a music...Read more
"This is the apocalypse," sings Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson as their new single "No Horses" comes to its chilling conclusion. It starts off sounding like it's going to be a synth pop song, albeit a dark one, with Shirley singing, "They'll love you, ...Read more
Usually, our song of the day selections are just released, new songs. But sometimes one feels like shining the proverbial light on something that's been around for a while. That's the case with today's pick, "Mahal Kita" by Emmy The Great. ...Read more
by Michael McCarthy On June 9th at the Wolf Den in Mohegan Sun in Connecticut I was finally able to catch hair metal/classic rock legends Mr. Big live after wanting to see them in concert for roughly 25 years. Needless to say, I had high hopes. If they were great, I probably would’ve...Read more
"I cannot breathe," sings Maximo Park's frontman Paul Smith on their just released new single "Risk to Exist," but the song is actually a breath of fresh air. I haven't been doing many song of the day posts lately, less they take the focus off of our...
Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer" is a timeless classic, obviously, but I dare say this cover by Smoke Season is even better than the original. They've turned it into a downright mesmerizing trip-hop song that's twice as eerie as the Talking Heads version and the video is equally...
