We can't believe we didn't know about Florence & The Machine sooner. With a crooning, bluesy style that echoes Adele or Corinne Bailey Rae, her songs are quirky, quixotic, and utterly addictive. Her latest release (okay, not so late, October '09), Lungs ($10), has ten... [More]

When we were 15, all we did with our sister was fight over who could use the bathroom first. Johanna and Klara Södeberg seem to harmonize as teen sisters much better than we did. Together, the sisters form the band, First Aid Kit, a Swedish... [More]

So, chances are, you don't list Hall & Oates among your top fave artists. However, it's also pretty likely that you know most of the words to their numerous hits (like Maneater, come on!). So, eschew the bad 80s hair and strange homoerotic vibe (are... [More]

French actress & singer Charlotte Gainsbourg's newest album, Irm, ($12) was co-written and produced with Beck, and it's clearly reflected in this eclectic collection of tunes.

We go way back. Well. Actually they have no idea who we are, but we've been fans of Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo since the Nagano Olympics in 1998. (They're proof, if you needed it, that being in your early or even late thirties does... [More]
