Alanis Morissette Not As We Video

Posted By LolaDub on Oct 3, 2008 at 10:43AM

Alanis Morissette has just released a new video for the song Not As We from her new album Flavors Of Entanglement. The song talks about starting from scratch and beginning again.

Could this be alluding to starting over after her ex, Ryan Reynolds? It can't feel all that great that he just married Scarlett Johansson in a private ceremony over the weekend.

The song is really pretty, and a lot less whiney than we're used to hearing Alanis be.


MGMT Is Taking Hollywood By Storm

Posted By LolaDub on Sep 26, 2008 at 6:48AM

MGMT is by far the hottest band in LA right now. They just played a sold-out show with Beck at the Hollywood Bowl and the buzz is that they brought down the house. Then they played at the TV Guide Emmy after-party at Hollywood hotspot The Kress on Sunday night. You could hear them rocking out down the street, and they sounded so amazing that everyone thought it was a CD. For real, these guys are that good.

We love that MGMT calls their music "easy listening" on their Myspace page. It's just not exactly the first thing to mind, but on second thought, that's just what you get when you listen to their album Oracular Spectacular. Catch them at Austin City Limits this weekend, and click www.myspace.com/mgmt for more tour dates. Oh, and download Electric Feel. You'll be glad you did.


Pepper Pink Crustaceans And Good Vibrations

Posted By LolaDub on Aug 13, 2008 at 11:53AM

If Pepper's not on your radar yet, they're about to be. That is, if you're into reggae and rock. We're assuming everyone is. They first landed on the mainland scene during the 2001 Warped Tour, after years of popularity on their home island of Kona, Hawaii. Pepper developed a huge fan base after touring with 311, Snoop, and Slightly Stoopid.

They've teamed up with Slightly Stoopid yet again for the Tailgate 2008 Summer Tour that just kicked off on August 1st. For tour dates, click here: www.pepperlive.com

Pepper's latest album, Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations, has become a permanent fixture on our Summer '08 iPod mix. It's the perfect soundtrack for summer living, which consists, or should consist of beach bathing, surfing, and a full cooler of cold beer at all times. If that doesn't sound appealing, we don't know what does! Check out Hollyscoop's fave track off Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations, Freeze.


Eric Hutchinson Rock & Roll Video

Posted By LolaDub on Aug 9, 2008 at 5:21AM

We've been listening to Eric Hutchinson for years, so now that he's close to becoming a household name, we figured we'd bring you up to speed on one of the best songs of the summer.

Eric's got a little Jason Mraz and a little Ben Folds, and this song will get stuck in your head from minute one. It's also on the soundtrack for Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2.

This guy is definitely just getting started on the music scene.


Beck Gamma Ray Music Video

Posted By LolaDub on Aug 5, 2008 at 11:28AM

Beck is constantly reinventing himself, and he's out with a brand new video called Gamma Ray off his new album Modern Guilt. It's his first album in two years, and it's a little more mellow than the Beck we're used to.

He worked with Danger Mouse on this album, who is responsible for the Gnarles Barkley albums. The album is available on iTunes now.

Stand And Salute: Rock’s Most Anthemic Bands

Posted By LolaDub on Jul 8, 2008 at 11:42AM

recently went to check out a band called the Good Gospel Truth. A Brooklyn quartet originally from Tennessee, these guys put on one of the best club shows I've seen in a long time. Choruses sung in spirited unison; crashing drum fills; hard-charging guitar crescendos. In a word: anthemic. Thinking about the show afterwards, I realized that a [good portion] MANY of my favorite bands could be described using that same word. It turns out I'm a sucker for huge guitar riffs, galvanizing vocals, and martial drum beats. So without further adieu, here are my top ten anthemic bands. What are yours?
1. U2 -- If the word anthemic disappeared, U2-ish would be a good replacement. Bono always sounds like he's singing mass, the Edge's guitar rings like the trumpets at Jericho, and Larry Mullen's rhythmic stiffness is a virtue. Adam Clayton? He, uh, always looks stylish.
Signature anthem: "Pride (In the Name of Love)"

2. The Clash -- Any band dubbed "the only band that matters" has got to have some serious anthemic power. Punk rock is often associated with a kind of nihilism, but the Clash sounded like their hearts might explode from caring so much.
Signature anthem: "Death Or Glory"

3. The Who -- I'm thinking of the Who's Next stadium rock version of the band more than the early modfathers. Pete Townshend's power chords and Keith Moon's roiling drum fills were, and are, key touchstones for any band wanting to sound bigger than life.
Signature anthem: "Baba O' Riley"

4. The Arcade Fire -- Win Butler and Co. are more dour than the other bands on this list, but even when these guys are singing about the apocalypse, their rag-tag widescreen epics make me hope they put out a few more albums before the end comes.
Signature anthem: "Wake Up"

5. Thin Lizzy -- Too often thought of as a one-, or maybe two-hit wonder (if you count "Jailbreak" along with "The Boys Are Back In Town"), Phil Lynott's band fused streetwise swagger with mythology-infused poetry and a saber-rattling twin guitar attack.
Signature anthem: "Roisin Dubh (Black Rose): A Rock Legend"

6. The Hold Steady -- Craig Finn's finely wrought lyrics turn hardscrabble hardcore kids into heroes. Tad Kubler's soaring guitar solos and Franz Nikolay's baroque keyboard flourishes do the same for their band.
Signature anthem: "How A Resurrection Really Feels"

7. The Waterboys -- For a hot minute back in the '80s, the Waterboys were at the forefront of a wave of big sounding UK acts like Simple Minds and Big Country. But they were the best, and their densely detailed productions and stirring folkish melodies shouldn't be forgotten.
Signature anthem: "This Is The Sea"

8. The Killers -- Maybe the most self-conscious of all the bands here. They get a lot of grief for being so obvious about their influences (U2, Springsteen), but writing anthems ain't for the humble hearted.
Signature anthem: "All These Things That I've Done"

9. Oasis -- For a short time, Noel Gallagher's huge guitar sound and his brother Liam's sneering swagger had this band competing for the title of "world's biggest." They've since slipped, but their rip-roaring sound has never shrunk.
Signature anthem: "Live Forever"

10. Bruce Springsteen -- A no-brainer. The Boss has written a handful of songs that a lot of Americans--and everyone in New Jersey--would gladly adopt as a new national anthem.
Signature anthem: "Born To Run"
