After the smash success of her eponymous debut album ("Put Your Records On" was everywhere in 2006), Corinne Bailey Rae just... disappeared. Why? Sadly, her husband passed away unexpectedly, and she retreated for awhile to grieve and write new music. Her newest record, The Sea,... [More]

We're dedicated to filling our music collection with good tunes, and we're all about spending money for a worthy cause, so of course we picked up Hope for Haiti Now ($8). With 20 different songs from artists ranging from Beyoncé to Neil Young, it's well... [More]

Valentine's Day: it strikes fear into the hearts of kids with crushes and married-fifty-years types alike. Why? It's just a day... Okay, a day fraught with overblown expectations and way too many stereotypes. That's why, this year, we're presenting gift ideas that will really mean... [More]

This year's Starbucks Sweetheart CD ($13) is on constant rotation for us right now. The covers of 'love songs' (loosely interpreted) by contemporary artists is a pleasant compilation for head over heels lovebirds, but the mix is also mellow enough for those of us out... [More]

The iKaraoke microphone ($15) may very well be the mother of all iPod accessories (at least until they come up with something that cleans your house). Plug it into your iPod and stereo system aaaaaaand - BOOM you have an instant karaoke machine. The device... [More]

We heard the eponymous first single off of Sade's new album (due out February 9), Soldier of Love, ($10) and were hooked. Chill, yet intense, it mixes signature R&B beats with electric guitar, military drummers, and sleek, sleek harmonies: the perfect accompaniment to a relaxing... [More]

Maybe you remember these guys. Maybe you don't. But if you've been thinking that NOTHING could turn "Sugar, Sugar" into a song that you'd actually want to listen to for longer than fifteen seconds, you're wrong. It's actually a lot better when sung (mostly) in... [More]

After seeing Adam Lambert's rather controversial AMA performance this past weekend, we felt we had to check out his new album, For Your Entertainment. ($10) Day-um. It's fabulous. The boy has one serious vocal range, and some very talented songwriters behind him. It's as though... [More]

Before Rod Stewart's disco crooning of Do Ya Think I'm Sexy, he did a brief run in a band called The Faces with Ron Wood, of Rolling Stone origin. Even though they weren't around for very long, they had a ton of hits like "Stay... [More]

We've been Lady Gaga fans since the first time we saw her perform, "Just Dance" on TV. Never one to shy away from reworking her look or her music - seriously, have we ever seen her in the same outfit twice? - she's re-releasing her... [More]

We don't know if the hype around the Beatles will ever fade, and that's a-ok with us...especially if that means we keep seeing awesome items like The Beatles USB Apple ($280) that releases on December 8. Not only is it a freaking sweet design, it... [More]

Labeled "Music with a twist" by Amazon.com, Kathy Griffin's new performance CD, Suckin' It For the Holidays ($14) is crammed full of the usual swear words and diatribes against Speidi and their ilk. No one is safe from her barbed wit, not even Maya Angelou... [More]

No worries if your sweater's destroyed, you can use this Weezer Snuggie ($30, includes a copy of their new album, Raditude!) to stay warm! Seriously, we were never into the Snuggie thing (though it's theoretically not a bad concept), but now that our boys in... [More]

While the name conjures up images of big, looming beastly creatures, Monsters of Folk ($8) is actually quite an enjoyable musical experience. The supergroup is made up of M. Ward (She & Him), Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes)... [More]

We ain't ashamed to admit it, y'all: we lurve us some well-done twangin' country music. Hot off the heels of Kerosene and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Miranda Lambert's new album, Revolution ($10) is a boot-stompin', sing along-good album written by some of the best in the business.... [More]

*Sigh*... Embryonic ($10), the newest venture into psychedelic soundscapes by The Flaming Lips, has been deemed genius by die-hard Lips fans, and a let down by others at the wayside. This effort verges on being lost in over-production, compressed values, and Wayne's usually charming voice... [More]

So you're not in the mood for cool jazz or le jazz hot. Try something icy cold. The eerie album It's OK to Listen to the Gray Voice ($19), from the Jan Garbarek Group, takes its title and every track name from the work of... [More]

Admit it. You're a Gleek. You tune in every week to giggle and sigh over Glee - and we do, too! The cast is hysterical. The music is toe-tappingly fun. And it's finally hip to be a musical theater & choir nerd! Out on November... [More]

On his first release in over two years, Crazy Love, ($14) Michael Bublé sticks with the same vintage-inspired crooning that made him a star in the first place, and that's not a bad thing. His buttery, rich voice and creative musical touches are what we... [More]

Thanks to the Thanko Cat Earphones ($25), you're co-worker/dorm buddy/roommate won't be asking you again, why you didn't dress up for the annual Halloween soiree. This is practically one of the easiest Halloween garb outfits that you can do, requiring no effort on your part... [More]

If your mouth isn't watering yet - what's wrong with you? But we're here to offer some relief; Viveltre is offering 3 dozen marshmallows in flavors of your choice to one lucky Outblush reader! See the giveaway form below to enter, and good luck!
