Alyson Stoner, the adorable little white girl who danced in Missy Elliott’s videos for “Work It” and “Gossip Folks,” is a grown-up now. She’s been in a couple of Step Up moves, where she plays Camille, Moose’s girlfriend. (She’s also the sister’s voice on Phineas & Ferb.) And she just got a bunch of other… More »

There were too many music videos this week. I had to devote a huge chunk to yesterday afternoon just watching all the ones I’d missed. And worse, there were too many good ones. How is anyone supposed to process all these entertaining music videos? It’s fucked up. When a K-pop boy band makes a music… More »

Matt And Kim – “Get It” + New Glow Details

Giddy festival-bashing duo Matt And Kim were once Brooklyn’s most reliably fun warehouse punk band, so I don’t think there’s a person on this planet who can begrudge them their ascension to world-conquerer status. Besides, they just seem so happy all the time. The world needs happy people! The duo has just announced the impending… More »

BottleRock 2014 Saturday: OutKast And Weezer Deliver The Hits, No Age Open For Smash Mouth

Every now and then, it’s good to reorient your perspective. At any given more established or mainstream festival stocked with your usual indie mainstays, No Age wouldn’t come across as too out there or jarring, but between BottleRock’s semi-bucolic surroundings, laidback tone and pace, and generally more rustic or easygoing lineup (the band was playing… More »

Matt & Kim – “Now”

Following up on the rousing “Let’s Go,” Matt and Kim of Matt & Kim offer up the second single from their forthcoming LP Lightning: It’s called “Now,” and it’s cut from the same cloth as “Yea Yeah” in that the hook is the title is the title is the hook. It’s an uptempo one with… More »
