FYI: Summer's Best Music Videos

Every summer we’re bombarded with a slew of catchy tunes to listen to with the windows rolled down and zero cares in the world. At some point during the season one lucky song will be deemed the *song of the summer*. Unfortunately, as I am not particularly hip or much of a radio listener, I’m uneducated as to what popular summer song is making waves this year. However, I have come across plenty of entertaining music videos (not to mention the cameos!) to keep me busy on YouTube all day! read more…

So without further ado…: read more…

The 13 Best Covers of 2013!

If the music industry had its own style guide, the 2013 headline would read: “TREND TO TRY: Masks.” Chart-toppers from Daft Punk to SBTRK (aka the early adapters) lead the way, while other pop divas tried to replicate the legends of yesteryear in sound, songs, and style. The fact is, it’s fun to be someone else for a change. And while imagining Fleet Foxes as HAIM and HAIM as Miley may turn your world upside down, these 13 catchy covers will have you falling for your favourite tracks all over again. Uptempo rhythms get an acoustic makeover while slow jams go high speed; here is 2013 – cover to cover. read more…

MIXTAPE: Best Albums of 2013

As of tomorrow, there are only thirteen days left of the thirteen year of the 21st century. If you’re superstitious like me, that sounded like a whole lotta unlucky served with a side of freaky Friday (LiLo not included). Exhibit A: Unlucky 13 certainly had it’s hold on Amanda Bynes. Looking back though, this year in music seemed to escape the ill-fated powers of numerology as album after album had us head(phones) over heels. Countdown the final days of December with our roundup of songs from the standout records of the last twelve months. Starting with Foxygen in January to M.I.A. in November, the new releases of 2013 got lucky faster than a Daft Punk fan. Maybe it was actually lucky number 13 this whole time…? read more…

An Ode To All-Girl Bands: HAIM Edition

The best and worst part about being in a band with your sisters is sharing your clothes – at least that’s what San Fernando Valley girls Este, Danielle, and Alana Haim (rhymes with ‘time’) say. Working on a “dibs basis” when it comes to their denim cutoffs and enviable sunglass collection, this the trio of sisters and hair-godesses make up the BBC Sound Of 2013 winners. Like their sibling-band predecessors (re: Heart, The Breeders, The Shags) they bring a magic that Este likes to call “sister-ESP” to the stage. Brimming with anecdotes of summers spent at music fests and that time when the eldest Haim was nearly arrested at a Prince concert, their cooler-than-cool personalities will make you wish for that Von Trapp kind of dynamic you thought only existed on the silver screen. In honour of girl-only bands that rock harder than the boys, we’re kicking off this monthly series An Ode To All-Girl Bands with the sibling-act that everyone’s talking about…because sharing clothes, telepathic powers, and inside family jokes have us convinced that sister bands are the best type of band. read more…
