Pity Sex "Wind Up", Video Review

By Helen Bach | September 4, 2013

I see them and think obnoxious twenty somethings who I want to punch in the face. Yet when I skip the vid and images and simply listen- I find engaging and refreshing.

Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" Video Is Too Much

By admin | August 19, 2013

I couldn’t watch past about thirty seconds before I felt disgusted.

William Beckett Releases Video For "Benny and Joon"

By admin | August 2, 2013

We find that “Benny and Joon” are, in fact, Bill and his wife. In a way, they both have very similar features and characteristics to Depp and Masterson; the parallels are perfect.

Watch Hanni El Khatib's Steamy-Sexy New Video For ‘Pay No Mind’

By Alyson Camus | July 25, 2013

I guess what you get here is the essence of rock’ n’ roll: it’s hip twisting, hair banging with hot girls losing their mind in front of cars

Panic At The Disco, “Miss Jackson ft Lolo”, Reviewed

By Helen Bach | July 19, 2013

The skittish boy is gone in left in his place is a man with talent and poor management in a dime a dozen industry.

Get Bored With Justin Timberlake's Latest Video For 'Tunnel Vision'

By Alyson Camus | July 6, 2013

I am just surprised it’s still on Youtube since the video features a series of naked women dancing and caressing themselves

Killcode Krew, "Still Here" Video Review

By Helen Bach | July 5, 2013

This slickly produced video throws Kid Rock and Stone Sour into a Vita Mix and makes a bloody mess. Its a great song for those who enjoy their metal with a dash of down home cookin

Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop" Reviewed

By admin | June 25, 2013

At first, I couldn’t get through it at all, and then forced myself to view the whole thing, praying it was a joke of some sort. The countless product placements, ridiculous scenarios- it makes no sense at all.

Elvis Costello with Mumford and Sons , "The Ghost of Tom Joad"

By Helen Bach | June 16, 2013

I should be raving about how it gave me a migraine and how I wanted to slice my eyelids off but I can’t. Its a classic song done in a classic manner by and old dude and some whipper snappers in a pretty setting. It could be an advertisement for the Park service its so clean.

Harper Simon's Nostalgic New Video For '99' Off His 'Division Street' Album

By Alyson Camus | May 18, 2013

Sometimes I wish I could wake up/And see you lying there like it is 1999’ he sings in the hooky chorus’, 1999 is not that long ago but Simon seems either to have a secret love for everything vintage or retro, or to remember 1999 as something coming from a remote past. Who still uses a toy slide-viewer? Who still uses an old-fashioned camera to take pictures?

Man Overboard releases "Where I Left You"

By admin | April 29, 2013

As for the video, it’s pretty cute. The guys pretty much do what every teenager does behind closed doors- mouth the words to awesome songs and dance around. It’s pretty great because it kind of shows us their silly side, and watching them have fun is entertaining. Not to mention how cool the concert footage is

Watch The Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Movie-Like Video For 'Sacrilege'

By Alyson Camus | April 7, 2013

the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ four-minute clip for their new song ‘Sacrilege’ is one of these mini-movies which almost distract us from the song itself. I guess bands are sometimes so focused at making the perfect video with a captivating story, that the song takes the second plan,… but isn’t the purpose of a video to promote the song and not vice-versa?

Watch Huey Lewis Murder Weird Al Yankovic As If They Were Doing An American Psycho Remake

By Alyson Camus | April 5, 2013

I don’t always find the Funny or Die videos extremely entertaining but this one certainly is. Picture this, Huey Lewis, from Huey Lewis and the News, and Weird Al Yankovic reacting the famous scene of the book and movie, when Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale) murders Paul Allen (Jared Leto) with an ax in his immaculate apartment. It’s hilarious as Huey Lewis gives the same lecture on ‘American Psycho’ than Bateman/Bale did

The Flaming Lips' Collaboration With Bon Iver, 'Ashes In The Air' Gets A Freaky Video

By Alyson Camus | April 4, 2013

Another weirdness is the release of this video for ‘Ashes in the Air’, a song they did about a year ago with Bon Iver for their ‘The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends’ all-star collaboration, whereas they are about to release another album on April 16th. But may be this is announcing the real Terror to come.

Fall Out Boy's "The Phoenix" Reviewed

By admin | April 4, 2013

I seriously can’t get over how good the new Fall Out Boy stuff is.  They recently released the video for their tune “The Phoenix”.  I have so much to say, so I think I’ll go in order.

Watch This Estonian Band Winny Puhh's Video At Your Own Risk!

By Alyson Camus | March 30, 2013

It’s such an old and tacky institution, nobody I know is ever paying attention to it, but apparently it’s still going on after all these years, and this weirdo Estonian band is in competition this year. It would be really cool if Winny Puhh – that’s their name – would win, but you have to watch the video below to realize what these guys are up to,…

Saturday, Monday ft. Julia Spada “The Ocean” Video, Reviewed

By Henry Sins | March 21, 2013

Not only is it just a stunning video to watch, but it does such a fantastic job of depicting what “The Ocean” is about. Swedish producer Ludvig Parment is the man behind Saturday, Monday and, paired with the brilliant Julia Spada, he has only released two songs

Watch What Could Be Rilo Kiley's Last Video Ever?

By Alyson Camus | March 21, 2013

If you remember, the band had requested fans to participate into the making of the video, asking them to upload band footage, personal Rilo Kiley video clip, and there is no doubt some of them were incorporated into the final result.

The Strokes, "All The Time," Video Review

By Helen Bach | March 21, 2013

They did good though with “Is This It?’ in 2001, one of the coolest warm up at the gym songs of all time but 4 years later “Juice Box” left me cold, their tabloid behavior a bore and when they all woke up to think they were super models they got demoted to the external hard drive. So, now they’re back

Listen To Two New Vampire Weekend Songs!

By Alyson Camus | March 20, 2013

‘Diane Young’ is a mixed and intriguing bag with the familiar buoyancy of the band, going bipolar with light electronic doo-woopy parts, punchy drums and wild surfing guitar slides. It is a lot of fun but it almost sounds like a too quick ride

Morrissey Update, The Good, The Bad And The Worse Video Ever Made

By Helen Bach | March 20, 2013

Morrissey has canceled so many shows on this latest tour from ulcers to sick moms to pneumonia I am glad I was able to see him at all. I have been listening to him non stop since that first October show and I have not gotten sick of one tune yet. I believe that on average I am hearing ‘Shoplifters” at least three times a day

Enter Shikari's Rou Reynolds Narrates To End Hunger

By Helen Bach | March 15, 2013

"Post Hardcore" band Enter Shikari has been one of my faves for years. Their intriguing politics and their ridiculous energy makes their live shows electric- they literally fly off the stage.  So to see some thing so planned and packaged is rather startling but in a good way.

Taylor Swift's New Video For '22': Not A Whole Lot Going On At The Moment'

By Alyson Camus | March 15, 2013

all she does is dissing her exes in her stupid videos and shallow songs! With her Disney princess look and her bubble gum universe, she is becoming a monster

Wavves' Strange New Video For 'Demon To Lean On'

By Alyson Camus | March 13, 2013

The music has the usual fuzzy Wavves guitars and plenty of that Nathan Williams’ I-am-bored-with-life voice that can be really wearisome after a while. Despite a few louder episodes, the tune doesn’t venture very far from its start

Johnny Marr, “How Soon Is Now?”, Reviewed

By Helen Bach | March 1, 2013

Why do guitarist do that dick rubbing move whre they both cuddle up really close with down turned heads like their collectively moving a moving a heavy piece of furniture or something. Its one of the dumbest things I have ever seen yet nearly every band does it

fun. Music Video "Why Am I The One" Reviewed

By admin | February 28, 2013

The equipment they used was crystal clear, the lighting was really nice, and artistically, every frame could stand on its own as a photograph- that’s rare, and I loved it. I watched it a couple of times out of awe, and rewound certain parts. It’s absolutely brilliant; the camera angles aid the story so well.

Crashdiet, "California", Video Reviewed

By Helen Bach | February 23, 2013

From the album The Savage Playground, ‘California’ is a sad attempt at glam metal- I think. That’s the problem there is no genre represented here. I love the YouTube comments though, calling the guitarist fat “there is no room for fat in glam”.

Amanda Palmer "The Bed Song", Video Review

By Helen Bach | February 20, 2013

I love her, I hate her and its a cycle that continues nearly constantly. Today I hate her for ruining my song! Especially the care free opening exhibit. She went all Williamsburg on it, why oh why, must the plaid run so thick?

Balance And Composure Cover The Smith, And Jesus Weeps

By Helen Bach | February 16, 2013

Balance and Composure are a phenomenal band. I dont think I have ever used the word phenomenal in all my time writing here-but they are. They have a clean sound with unique peaks and valleys

Psychedelic Furs, "Heaven" Video Reviewed

By Helen Bach | August 12, 2012

HE VUHHHN” is a cool song. It has some good quotables ‘ there a clock on the wall and it keeps my time’ among others. I wonder why these guys didn’t get bigger? They had that whole ‘Brat Pack” movie cult happening, with songs like “Pretty In Pink” but as great as they were in the 80s they never got mega

XTC "Making Plans For Nigel" Reviewed

By Helen Bach | June 17, 2012

The mental institution them with the hypnotic sound was just intensified by Colin Mouldings adorable mouth. Seriously get a load of it. I’m surprised he wasn’t a pin up and where the hell is he now anyway? He’s the British David Cassidy.

Lil’ Wayne’s “Mirror”, featuring Bruno Mars Video Review

By Helen Bach | February 13, 2012

I think the reason they divide Bruno and Weezy in this video is cuz Mars is scared to death. What a lovely ‘red’ video this is. Lil Wayne starting with the man in the mirror and offering up props to MJ,

"Beekeeper'​s Daughter", All American Rejects, Video Reviewed

By admin | February 7, 2012

It’s totally a step up for the band if they want to gain a ton more fans, and since it’s kind of a comeback song, I can most certainly hear it being on the radio, and becoming really popular.

Madonna's New Video reviewed

By Alyson Camus | February 5, 2012

Like the music of the pop song, not that much, she seems to do a ‘best of’ of her career, carried by big footballers like the material girl she still is, wearing a big fat golden cross around her neck

"Shut The Front Door(Too Young For This)", Forever The Sickest Kid, Video Review

By admin | February 1, 2012

The band’s so much older; shouldn’t they be acting it? I hate to say it but they’re not the same old young group they were back in the Underdog Alma Mater days.

‘When The Ship Comes In’, Outernatio​nal's Video Review

By Alyson Camus | January 30, 2012

And I love it! There is a real energy and freshness in their interpretation, carried by the dynamic vocals of Miles Solay, who does not try to imitate Dylan (I still can’t believe how much he sounds like Joe Strummer!)

'Hanging on', Active Child, Video Review

By Alyson Camus | January 30, 2012

I don’t know if it is the ethereal harp, the choir-boy falsetto vocals, the dynamism transpiring through the quietude of the performance (I saw him at the Echo last summer), or simply the overall hypnotic beauty of the music.

Rocky Loves Emily The Best Friends You Could Ever Want

By admin | January 27, 2012

These five friends travelling in a van, having the time of their lives is inspiring and compelling. It’s cool to see them all so close and pursuing their dream. As they explore the nation’s capitol, they crack jokes and are bonding.

Ed Sheeran's "Drunk" Reviewed

By admin | January 26, 2012

It’s fascinating to watch because parts of it are funny, but then there’s more serious parts that really captivate you and draw you in. It’s ridiculously well done and one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a while.

Sleigh Bells', 'Comeback Kid' Video Review

By Alyson Camus | January 26, 2012

The video gives it some life, the scenery is sun-drenched 80s Florida with a lot of Alexis and her famous bangs, as she jumps on a bed in a red robe witha rifle or wears a black leather jacket,… sure she is sexy, but is that enough?

Chelsea Grin 'The Foolish One' Video Reviewed

By Helen Bach | January 23, 2012

So then, since I am not a teenaged boy why do I like this ‘noise’ so much? I’m not sure but the sound of a proper scream can be liberating even to an old crow such as myself.

The Internet, 'Fastlane' Video Review

By Alyson Camus | January 22, 2012

It features two runaway lesbian gangsters, played by Syd and actress Jasmine Flemings, armed to the teeth and greatly enjoying the killing and the robbing during their journey in the desert.

Nicki Minaj, "Stupid Hoe" Video Reviewed.

By Helen Bach | January 22, 2012

Shes the hoe hero and always came off a bit too prison yard for me. Yet in this video she comes across as a bad ass smart girl that you’d pretty much avoid in a hallway

Killjoys, Make Some Noise "We Are The Kids From Yesterday", Video Review

By admin | January 19, 2012

The song has always held a special place in my heart because of the lyrics. It really is the MCR anthem to me, and it is truly symbolic of how things get better, times are rough, but you just need to remain yourself.

Neon Trees "Everybody Talks", reviewed

By Helen Bach | January 17, 2012

The music is fantastic, so upbeat and with loads of high and lows. Tempo? Perfection. Even the voice is fine- its just how its said. Petty? Perhaps but like a small pebble in your shoe at first it can be overlooked, four hours in and you want to amputate your leg

Deathcab For Cutie, "Underneath the Sycamore" Reviewed

By admin | January 14, 2012

He has the perfect voice for this song; it really shows off his talent. The instruments are tight and dynamic, which makes them really interesting to listen to

Trash Talk "Slander", Video Review

By Alyson Camus | January 14, 2012

It is super short and works like an awesome hammer hitting you repeatedly on the head,… it is true you don’t need to be ‘fucked up’ to experience what this guy does at a Trash Talk concert, as the bloody ambiance seems pretty realistic to me.
