10 Best Songs for Earth Day
24-Apr-14   By: Todd

Well, Earth Day was last Tuesday. Unfortunately none of us here at LxL made it out to plant any trees. We did however make this list. So that counts for something right? Raising awareness, or something along those lines? Anyways, this was a surprisingly strong list. A lot of artists out there care about this planet, and that makes us happy. So do these songs: 10. Gorillaz – “O Green World” Interestingly enough, many songs of the Gorillaz could have



Eels Review: The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett
23-Apr-14   By: Austin

Eels The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett Mark Oliver Everett, also known as E, has led off his ten previous studio albums in a multitude of ways.  He opened off Electro-Shock Blues with the gut punch ode to his sister Elizabeth, who committed suicide.  On Beautiful Freak, E opens with probably his most commercial success, “Novocaine for the Soul”.  And on Shootenanny! he opens with an aggressive bluesy number.  Why is any of this relevant to Cautionary Tales you ask? 



The National Show Review
22-Apr-14   By: Todd

The National Chicago Theatre Chicago, IL April 18, 2014 Last Friday, The National performed their fourth and final show of a four-night stand at the Chicago Theatre. What was intended to be a two night stop in Chicago quickly turned into four consecutive nights, after each show continually sold out at such a rapid rate and they added more dates. Lucky was I, to have fellow LxL’er Wes to snag me such a prized possession. Regretfully, he could not actually



2014 Musicians on TV Power Rankings
21-Apr-14   By: Wes

Not only are movie and stage actors flocking to TV for more stable and quality roles, musicians have begun to get in on this golden age of television. Musicians are putting down their instruments and picking up their acting chops, getting major and minor roles on sitcoms and procedurals. We have always had late night television performances, but those have even been ratcheted up with the help of the Roots and more artists eager to collaborate on live television.  So



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
