Tink – “Million” Video

By Caitlin White / July 2, 2015 - 4:56 pm

Tink has been a little shaky this year between the tepid, preachy flop of “Ratchet Commandments,” and Timbaland’s endless obsession with making her into Aaliyah. She’s so far from that archetype that this doesn’t even make sense as a strategy — but I digress. “Million” is part of a move back toward the slinky minimalism… More »

By James Rettig / July 2, 2015 - 12:48 pm

For most everyone in America, the 4th Of July means lots of beer, sun, and good times. For the rest of the world, it’s pretty much just another day. (At least it’s a weekend this year!)

By Tom Breihan / July 2, 2015 - 11:22 am

Stephen Colbert ended his nine-year run on The Colbert Report back in December, and he’s not taking over The Late Show until this coming September.

Oscar – “Beautiful Words” Video

By James Rettig / July 1, 2015 - 8:48 am

The title track to Oscar Scheller’s debut Beautiful Words EP is an oddly hopeful thing. Despite the levity of the chorus, it still feels like its dragging around the weight of the world. The video for the song doesn’t have the same kind of narrative drive attached to it as his affecting “Daffodil Days” video,… More »
