In case you were wondering: I'm watching this season of X Factor.

In case you couldn't tell from the incessant tweeting, I'm watching X Factor this year from start to finish, courtesy a live feed from some British dude's television. And yes, I have a favorite. If I haven't already shoved her down your throat, this is Cher Lloyd, the swagger-ific 16-year-old…


MuuCast Episode Six: Rhythm & Muuse

It's recently come to my attention that far too little attention is paid to my R&B songstresses as of late--it's time to change that. "Rhythm & Muuse" is a 15-track collection of just a taste of the finest R&B-laced cuts I've come to love over the past few years, from Cassie to Amerie…

The Keri Hilson Situation: The Brilliance of "I Like" in an Imperfect World

Amanda Blank: I Love You (Album Review)

Until this summer, Philadelphia-bred mistress of ceremonies Amanda Blank could be found both everywhere and nowhere; a fixture found in the liner notes and "featuring" sections on collaboration tracks from just about every hip-hop tested, indie cred-approved artist since the mid-'00's, including…
