Highlights from Pickathon 2013

It was another incredible year out on Pendarvis Farm for this year's installment of Pickathon. Having had our inaugural visit last year, blistering temperatures and all, we knew that this year's trip would be nothing short of fantastic!

Best of 2007: Sero(tone)in's picks

Every December I go through over 80 albums and try to codify them some way. Though it may take until after Christmas before my final top list (and mix cd) is ready, my favorite albums of the year are always fairly obvious to me by now. These are the ones that meant the most to […]

Grammy nominees have been announced with igDana fave Amy Winehouse picking up nominations for best album, best song, best new artist and best record (essentially best single of the year.)
