TJ Mayes - "When Love Comes Down"

’50s era rock ’n’ roll had been long overdue for a rebirth. Thankfully, the stockpile of capable luminaries has not been in short supply over the past few years.

Boare - "playdatshit"

The world is in the midst of an electronic music renaissance, and you find most of this boon of producers laying claim to the club-friendly, bass-dropping variety, holing up in the the free-flowing world of hip-hop beatmaking or pitching their tent on the out-there, boundary-pushing EDM camp.

Broncho - "Class Historian"

Broncho has never been hurting in the hook department. The success of the trio’s 2011 debut, Can’t Get Past the Lips, was predicated mostly on its ability to marry melodies with kinetic guitar riffs and anarchic energy. Yet we’ve heard nothing to the degree of pure pop catchiness on display in “Class Historian,” the new single from Broncho’s upcoming sophomore album, Just Enough Hip to Be Woman.

Manmade Objects - Monuments

No one wants to be forgotten; everyone wants some sort of legacy, a mark they leave behind as they exit this life for whatever lies beyond.

And for as long as there has been death, there have been monuments — whether austere or understated, abstract or concrete, prominent or tucked away in private — erected by the ones they loved to assure that remembrance, at least for a time.

Admirals - Amidst the Blue

Sometimes it helps to not be very good.

Some of the best albums and artists were born out of happy accidents owed to varying degrees of early suckage — the perfect note or chord for a song found by missing the one you are aiming for, failed mimicry of an idol bearing something entirely new and great instead.

5 WTF Facts About Justin Bieber

No, really, these are true.

Rod Lott July 3rd, 2013

If you are a parent to a tween girl, you likely already know what I'm about to say in the next sentence. Yesterday, teen idol Justin Bieber returned to Oklahoma City to invade the Chesapeake Energy Arena, 100 W. Reno. But did you know these five things about the 19-year-old Biebz?


1. The spelling feature of the layout program Adobe InDesign does not recognize “Bieber” as a word. It does, however, suggest “babyish” for a replacement.  

2. Bieber employed a full-time “swag coach” to teach the teen “different swaggerific things to do.” On a related note, the U.S. Department of Labor calculates the current unemployment rate at 7.6 percent.

3. He is rumored to have hooked up with Miley Cyrus. At press time, the two sport a similar haircut.

4. Bieber may have left a questionable message in Amsterdam’s Anne Frank House guest book (“Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber”), but he’s not stupid. Witness his statements to Rolling Stone magazine ...
• on his race: “I’m actually part Indian. I think Inuit or something? I’m enough percent that in Canada I can get free gas.”
• on politics: “I'm not sure about the [political] parties. But whatever they have in Korea, that's bad.”
• on abortion: “It's like killing a baby.”
• on abortion in case of rape: “Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason.”

5. YouTube allows you to watch a loop of Bieber getting killed on a 2011 guest appearance on CSI, for 10 straight hours. So there's that. —Rod Lott

This is the full quote regarding the rape comment, which Rolling Stone asked. I would be grateful if you could amend your text so it's accurate. Thank you. 



"I really don't believe in abortion," Bieber says.

"It's like killing a baby."

Q: How about in cases of rape?

A: "Um. Well, I think that's really sad, but everything happens for a reason. I don't know how that would be a reason. I guess I haven't been in that position, so I wouldn't be able to judge that."
