The 10 Best Uses of Pop Songs in Commercials
17-Apr-14   By: Austin

Who watches commercials anymore?  I certainly don’t.  Unless it is a live sporting event, there is just no reason to subject yourself to them.  Luckily though, when we are a captive audience, there is once in awhile a commercial worth watching.  For the list this week, we decided to celebrate the return of Mad Men with a top ten list of pop songs used in commercials.  So, let’s celebrate Harry Crane’s commercial magic and delve right in.  As always, let



Timber Timbre “Hot Dreams” Review
16-Apr-14   By: Wes

Timber Timbre “Hot Dreams” Fellow LxLer Austin always ribs me for being a “slave to the classics”, but more than a slave to the classics, I think I’m more a “slave to the classic sound.” Cue Toronto singer/songwriter Taylor Kirk aka Timber Timbre’s “Hot Dreams”, the title track off his latest and third album, which just released last week. Since the moment I heard this song, I’ve been absolutely taken by it. I thought about reviewing the entire Hot Dreams



Black Keys Release New Track “Turn Blue”
15-Apr-14   By: Todd

Yesterday, The Black Keys released their second track from their upcoming album, Turn Blue. Which being the title track from the new album is also titled “Turn Blue”. “Fever”, the first track released from the upcoming album, seemed to fall a bit short of expectations due to its unimaginative lyrics and a bland music style that feels fairly old hat at this point. Where as “True Blue” slows things down to spin an eerie, slower groove from the Keys, that



Coachella’s Livecast: Was It Worth Watching?
14-Apr-14   By: Austin

There are a lot of angles with which to discuss Coachella Live on Youtube.  I tried to check it out periodically over the weekend because, to my knowledge, this amount of live coverage of a festival hasn’t been attempted until now.  I saw a little bit of everything, and came away impressed in some areas and not so impressed in others. The Good! Pharrell’s set is the reason these types of festivals should shoot to bring in huge pop acts. 



LxListening: Random Pop Songs
11-Apr-14   By: Austin

It’s been awhile since I’ve done a LxListening.  I’ve heard a bunch of interesting (if not great) pop songs lately, and so I figured I could scrape together several of them to get out a proper LxListening.  Please note that all of these songs may not necessarily be “new”, except maybe to me.  But, at the very least, they are deserving for a few spare words from yours truly, and maybe even a few pointers on how they could be



The 10 Best Country Outlaws
10-Apr-14   By: Wes

The rogue western figure has been making its way back into pop culture recently, not only with musicians like country artists like Jamey Johnson and Kacey Musgraves, but also in television and movies, most notably with the Elmore Leonard (RIP) adapted FX series Justified. Between Justified’s season finale Tuesday night and the Archer season surrounding Cherlene turning into an outlaw country star (“OUTLAW COUNTRY!”), here are our 10 favorite country outlaws. 10. Merle Haggard Haggard was part of the old



Tune-Yards Song Review: “Wait For A Minute”
09-Apr-14   By: Austin

Tune-Yards “Wait For A Minute” I think we are all pretty excited for Merrill Garbus to drop another dose of truth after her 2011 breakout whokill.  It’s less than a month until her third proper album, Nikki Nack is to be released, so of course, it is time for several songs to be dropped to whet our collective whistles.  The latest such song is “Wait For a Minute”, produced by Malay, a major contributor on Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange.  I



St. Vincent Show Review
07-Apr-14   By: Wes

St. Vincent April 5th, 2014 Riviera Theatre, Chicago, IL With each album, St. Vincent aka Annie Clark has further cemented herself as an artist worth paying attention to. Her latest self-titled album sounds like nobody but herself and each album has gotten increasingly artful. Thanks to the Riviera Theatre, Jam Productions, and the wonderful world that is Twitter, I landed two free tickets to see her as she strolled through Chicago. While her latest tour is no doubt her most



The Rest is Noise Book Review
04-Apr-14   By: Wes

The Rest is Noise Of the three major musical categories (classical, jazz, and popular music), classical is easily my biggest musical blind spot. While I know your major works like Beethoven’s 5th and Copland’s Appalachian Spring, I am pretty lacking understanding classical music history beyond a couple classes I took in college. The Rest is Noise offers what appears to be a fairly comprehensive look at 20th century classical music, in a way that binds various artists, movements, and pieces



Going, Going, Gone! Best “Grand Slam” Artists of All Time
03-Apr-14   By: Todd

With people flooding baseball stadiums all over the country for their favorite teams opening day, we thought we would kick this season off with a grand slam list of our own. The rules were a bit tricky on this one, but we decided to pick artists that had four great albums in succession. Thus being the grand slam of their career. This idea was taken from music podcast Sound Opinions, who offered their favorite musical grand slams last year. Which is actually
