You could be forgiven for assuming Yebba is British. The singer born Abbey Smith — her stage name is Abbey backwards — is working in a hip-hop-adjacent retro soul realm that, in the 21st century, has been dominated by English singers like Amy Winehouse, Duffy, and Adele. One listen to “Boomerang,” the most decidedly Winehouse-esque throwback on Yebba’s debut album Dawn, is enough to clue you in to Back To Black producer Mark Ronson’s involvement. But no, Yebba is not from the UK. She’s from Arkansas. And the music industry is doing its damndest to ensure she’s known all over the world.

Scarypoolparty, the stage name of singer-songwriter Alejandro Aranda, has dropped an intimate new single, “Friends.” It’s impossible to predict what Scarypoolparty will do next in terms of style, but on this track, the musician shows off his gentle, yet powerful vocal ability and borderline unbelievable instrumental talent while exploring themes of nostalgia and giving an honest […]

When HBO Max launched last year, one of its marquee attractions was supposed to be a reunion of the cast of Friends, and each of the cast members reportedly got paid millions to do it. Now, after a solid year of pandemic-related delays, that Friends reunion is finally up on HBO Max. It’s got James Corden interviewing the show’s cast on a recreated version of the Friends set, and it’s also got a few famous guests. One of those guests is Lady Gaga, who sings “Smelly Cat” with Lisa Kudrow.

Like most who’ve walked this planet, 17-year-old music prodigy Evann McIntosh loves Jennifer Aniston, but most people don’t write entire songs with Jen serving as a reference point. It’s tough being a teenager. It’s also tough having to wait for your parents to go to sleep so you can record music in the family room. […]

“Addicted” is one of the best songs of the year. The opening track and lead single from Jorja Smith’s new Be Right Back EP was extremely well chosen because it definitely grabbed my attention. The song harnesses Smith’s considerable talents as a proven master of British soul and refracts them back into the world at surprising angles. Against a backdrop of moody, Radiohead-esque rock — wispy keyboards, a stuttering snare drum, smoky guitars that seem to flicker in and out of existence — Smith shows off her poise and finesse in the face of heartbreak. Her voice darts and flutters across the rhythm with a casual grace, lightly pogo-ing into stretched out syllables that quiver with fine-tuned precision. “The hardest thing/ You are not addicted to me,” she sings. “I’m the only thing you should need.” She sounds like if Adele was more inclined to artfully sigh than to belt out glory notes.

bands performances on tv shows, no doubt, avril lavigne, death cab for cutie, the cranberries

Remember the time Hootie And The Blowfish performed on NBC’s Friends and Monica even wound up getting a hickey from one of the band members at a meet and greet after the concert? Of course you do. You probably also remember that the band actually didn’t play on the show and, even worse, weren’t seen […]

It’s no secret that over the past 5 years or so, reboots have dominated the film and TV world. Hollywood apparently learned a few years ago that reboots make a lot of money, so since then, it seems like nothing is off the table to be remade in the modern age.  While some of the reboots […]

[embedded content] Who doesn’t love television? When you were a toddler, it was an electronic babysitter. In your teen days, it brought you closer to the potential life that was going on outside your parents’ home. And as you got older, it’s been that old friend that doesn’t judge you the way a boss, an […]
