Sep 22 BEDROCKtoberfest Curated By Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Nick Zinner, Saturday September 20th 2014
Bedrock-LA is like Disneyland for musicians, a giant 40,000 square feet music-service facility, located in the heart of Echo Park. And Bedrock has its fest, Bedrocktoberfest, which is a bit premature since we are still in September, but they probably wanted a good reason to sell good German beer

Sep 22 Taylor Swift Vs Every Celebrity In The World
I stole this off Popdust here so if you wanna see the original go there but if you wanna stay here, I’ve simplified it and sneered at all the right places just for you. Plus, in my world young Tay tay can do no wrong so, guess what? It’s all everyone elses fault. Oh and I graded em because that’s what we do.

Sep 22 Medium Cool: The Week In Talk Show Hosts 9-22-14
I haven’t been to Las Vegas since 1975 so maybe next year I should do it. I wanna see the Beatles “Love”, Britney’s solo show and this the second Michael Jackson-Cirque De Soliel collaboration. I skipped the first show when it played MSG and I kinda regret it. On Letterman on Thursday I can take a a look at # 2.

Sep 22 UK Top 10 Singles 9-27-14
Bass and drums, bass and drums, certainly you cant throw a brick without hitting bass and drums. The first four tracks are interchangeable, EDM plus pro vocals. Now that the UK hasn’t broken up, maybe they should start on making their charts work.

Sep 22 UK Top 10 Albums 9-27-14
Yuck. The Script is awful and their album cover is worse, Babs is just as bad, Catfish & The Bottlemen are predictable UK rockers, and only Chris Brown is both new and good and, well, he is Chris Brown. You need a shower after listening to him.

Sep 22 10 Songs: Monday, September 22nd, 2014
Love Me Tender – Barbra Streisand, Elvis Presley – Awful act of necromancy, almost astounding in its lack of chemistry and sexiness and cool and warmth, uncool to an extent not knowable to the average person. Worst song ever – F

Sep 21 “Turn it Up”: I Tip My Hat To Lynyrd Skynyrd
Yes, I may be in Sabbatical but it doesn’t mean I have nothing to say. Gather round kids and let me tell you how it took a pretty intelligent girl 40 years to realize that Southern Rock ain’t so dang bad.

Sep 21 Haim’s Body-Shaped New Vinyl For ‘My Song 5′
I give you this, they are young girls and cute, and this is why we get this new vinyl of their track ‘My Song 5’, shaped like Alana Haim’s derriere, with her legs and arms sticking out of the vinyl’s edges. Why? Did fans need this? I am certain they will sell out very fast

Sep 21 Sneak Peaks: New Album Releases Week of September 22nd, 2014
John Mellencamp hasn’t been around for a long time and Jennifer Hudson is a true soul singer. It is a toss up between Leonard Cohen and Aphex twins, and I am gonna go with Aphex Twin because I am not anticipating Cohen, I’ve listened to it non stop all week.

Sep 21 Let’s Active: rock nyc Concert Picks w-o 9-22-14
I had tickets to see No Doubt at Roseland years ago and blew it off to check out Nustrat Ali Khan, not a bad trade off, but it is one I don’t need to make Saturday at Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival where they headline along with the likes of Jay Z, Carrie Underwood, fun., The Roots and Tiesto

Sep 21 That Was The Week That Was: September 15th, 2014
Like everybody over a certain age who is obsessed with rock and roll, this was all about the Replacements who failed to disappoint with a career spanning 100 minute set of Mats song. Lorde was pretty damn good as well. Meanwhile, Cat Stevens forced us to pre buy his album or miss out on the presale code.

Sep 21 10 Songs: Sunday, September 21st, 2014
Imagine if Jefferson Starship were really, really Jefferson Airplane, and you will get close to this anthem. “This is for the wild ones, this is for the hearts that never quit” Viv sings, and recently signed to Republic Records, it has apparently paid off big – B+

Rachel Brown’s ‘Four Leaf Clovers’, A Song From Her Debut Album ‘Building Castles’

This new song ‘Four Leaf Clovers’ by Rachel Brown is a bouncy folky tune with her clear and youthful voice hip hoping over percussion and world music fusion that made a stop in Caribbean islands. It is as sun-kissed as a Jack Johnson melody although it is done with less guitar but more rhythmic voices and syncopated African pulse, that could have come from the deepest rainforest.
