Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1

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]

She & Him: Volume Two

Zoey Deschanel = She. M. Ward = Him. Together, they comprise the retro-inspired music duo, She & Him. Their latest effort, Volume Two ($8), hits stores today, and we're hooked. Deschanel's voice wouldn't be amiss in a 1960's girl group, with her low, distinctively raspy... [More]

Jamie Cullum: The Pursuit

Jamie Cullum's first studio album in four years, The Pursuit, ($13) has Cullum playing no less than four instruments: organ, bass, piano, and guitar. The result is a jazzy, breezy set of songs that fluctuate between intensely personal and brightly pop-inflected - especially the first... [More]

Zac Brown Band: The Foundation

The Foundation ($12) by the Zac Brown Band is twangy, down home good. Full of complex guitar & fiddle licks and sweet harmonies, ditties like "Sic 'Em On A Chicken," and "Toes" are just plain fun. The album is far from cookie cutter country, and... [More]

Charlotte Gainsbourg: Irm

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. Our favorite, "La Collectionneuse," features velvety, dissonant piano chords against Gainsbourg's signature whispery speak-singing style. Songs are by turns... [More]

We Heart Shen & Zhao

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]

Corinne Bailey Rae: The Sea

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]

V-Day Gifts: The Player

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]

Sweetheart CD

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]

Sade: Soldier of Love

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]

Magneto Siempre

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]

Adam Lambert: For Your Entertainment

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]
