Society has changed since Grammy-nominated adult contemporary R&B duo Kindred the Family Soul released their first single
Introducing: The Manx, a band whose absurd get-ups and performances are only a small bonus of listening to their music and
When listening to several of the tracks, I definitely had flashbacks of listening to the OTEV songs from "Big Brother" or perhaps to Rockapella singing on "Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?" that give clues to solve a puzzle. #cannotbeunheard
Justin Bieber's latest single, "Sorry," a moombahton-pop delight, opens with the line, "You have to go and get angry at all of my honesty." It's an odd choice for an apology song, Bieber prefacing his mea culpa by blaming the object of his touted remorse.
The fact that composer/vocalist Mike Kelleher just released "Mélange," an aptly named album of mixed genres, would be more newsworthy than saying he comes off as a genuinely decent person. But in these cynical times, it's actually relevant - especially given his line of work.
The uncanny similarity of Maze's vocal intonation to that of the (former) King of Pop, Michael Jackson, is remarkable. There's a uniqueness to his voice that makes it easy to get wrapped up in.

It has been six years since LaMontagne's last solo effort, "Gossip In The Grain," and certainly he has changed as a person
Truth is, not every media interaction will be mutually beneficial. Sure, giving Iggy a cover helped us 'sell copies/get clicks
There are few albums that strike you at first listen as, for lack of a better word, "important." The Apache Relay's newest is among them.
Dooley combines brassy comedy with such an optimistic earnestness that you just want to hug her, or at least cringe while
It's been over a week since Frànçois and the Atlas Mountains released Piano Ombre, and I've taken my time in forming an opinion. You could say I wanted to be sure I loved it as much as I thought. The truth is I love it even more.
