Bring back the sun (??!!) with Imaginary Amie's Summer Mixtape

Ahhh….summer. There’s nothing quite like cranking up a bouncy, happy song on a sunny day – whether you’re in a car with the top down, or taking a sunshiny sidewalk stroll with your earphones firmly in place. Sadly, once again this summer,  the sunny days in Seattle have been few and far between (Hello, July?).

My red and white tears, shed for the official breakup of The White Stripes

[video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drEv4ppt2n4] The news just broke that the White Stripes are no longer.

Yesterday I divulged my favorite albums of the year. Today I am ready to let go of my latest obsession: My album recap of how I spent my 00’s. The below listage rant is my own little time capsule to remind myself why 2000-2009 musically ruled. As with my other list posts, I’m certain I […]

Vote in the NME USA music awards. Or not.

NME is sponsoring the first-ever NME Awards USA. I just tried going over to their website to read about the nominees, and when voting ends, but apparently you need to be a registered user to see the information. And that's completely lame.
