It was only a decade ago that music videos were an unthinkable luxury for most bands. There was an air of exclusivity to them: Unless you were on a label with a decent promotional budget or had a film major in your band, you probably weren't going to get one, and even if you did, there weren’t many outlets for sharing it. Today, of course, music videos are about as exclusive as Bandcamp pages. T...

Here's one for the ick department. This weekend I (and, judging by the CC list, dozens of other members of the Milwaukee media) received an e-mail with the subject line "Rapper Kills himself." It contains a link to a YouTube video that purportedly shows a Milwaukee rapper committing suicide, and with all the tact of a spam penis-enlargement ad, it concludes, "please this video is disturbing...

This music video is making the rounds online mighty quick, and I've got to admit it's pretty clever. The dancing cats begin shortly after the 2:00 mark: I scoured the Internet for some extra information on the artist, but aside from the fact that her name is MEG, the name of the song is "Precious" and she's apparently signed to Universal, I know nothing.

It warms my soul to know that after all these years, The Cure still sounds this good. Their new single, "The Only One," gleefully flaunts their cuddlier side: ...

Two months? How was I going to be able to wait two whole months until the release of the New Bloods album so I could finally write about it? I was so smitten with the band�s debut album, The Secret Life, that putting off my review of it made me feel like a kid waiting for Christmas. Of course, two months came and went, but after the album had been sitting untouched on my desk for weeks, I...

It's difficult to believe it took so long, but Les Savy Fav finally made their first national television performance on Friday, playing "Patty Lee" from their latest disc, Let's Stay Friends. It was less frightening and more overtly comical than a typical Les Savy Fav concert�perhaps because the group toned down their freakiness for the masses, but more likely because Tim Harrington's dance mov...

Although their days of being guaranteed hitmakers may be behind them, the Neptunes production team has had a surprisingly long run. A decade after their beats cracked the charts, they continue to work with just about every big-name rapper and pop star in the industry. By comparison, N.E.R.D., the funk-rock band spearheaded by the Neptunes, was a flash in the pan. The group cut one o...

Kenosha filmmakers are recruiting extras for a music video based on their horror film, Haunted.
