Karen Pittman has stolen so many scenes, she should’ve been locked up years ago. I mean that figuratively, and man that opening line, which is still going on by the way, was pretty lame. Yet, it’s true. The Broadway veteran and television actress has been a force for years – from her recent turn as ..
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Well, Marina And The Diamonds have long been your ears BFFs – both of ‘em. The band fronted by the beautifully talented Marina Diamandis, dropped her third album entitled FROOT last week, and it’s almost certainly going to propel MTD her/them to such great heights. The title ..
AWOLNATION’S “Sail” had a boomerang effect on radio. It was released in early 2011, killed it on alt-rock charts months later, hit the mainstream Billboard charts by year’s end, dropped off of the countdown some five months later, and stormed right back a year later en route to going six-times platinum. Not every song has ..
Talk to reggae icon Shaggy for three minutes or less, and you’ll realize three things: A) he never stopped making music despite terrestrial radio in the states cutting his airplay B) his charity work will always come first, and C) he doesn’t care about “A.” You’ll also learn right off the bat he’s the chillest ..
Growing up an avid World Wrestling Federation (WWF then, WWE now) fan, I always loved the various entrance music each grappler would enter the ring to. Jake “The Snake” Roberts’ theme had sort of a Miami Vice thing going on- after all keyboards were king in the 1980s. Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat’s music was even ..
Do you remember those old commercials where off-beat salesmen ramble on about their item that does it all or simply “slices and dices?” No? Well, watch this and you’re welcome. Moving on, NYC-bred band of brothers AJR dropped their debut full-length album Living Room today, and completely did it themselves (DIY indeed). They wrote it, ..
I’m not about to go all Inception on you, but dreams, as we all know, can float all over the place. One minute, you might be dreaming about sand on the beach, and the next you could be at a bar doing jello shots with a zebra and Tom Hanks. Just last night, I had ..
“She want neo-soul, this hip-hop is old She don’t want no rock’n’roll” – The Roots, “The Seed 2.0.” The Jack Moves are a soul-pop group out of New Jersey that are too cool for school. I say that since, after all, I filmed their A-Sides session within a classroom at the Music Conservatory of Westchester ..
The “sophomore jinx” thing is very real. Arthur 2: On the Rocks immediately comes to mind for some unexplainable reason, but I’ll deal with that on my own time and perhaps with my therapist. The reason I bring this up is successful and hyped musicians often fail to deliver creatively and commercially on their follow-up ..
Growing up a fat kid in Yonkers, NY (that’d be the title of my autobiography by the way), my number one way to escape the middle school jerks and the growing waistline was going to the movies. I would see two each weekend (it didn’t matter which ones – usually one good, one painfully awful), ..
