You can call me Nancy

You technically can call me Nancy but I’d prefer CC. Honestly, you can call me whatever you want just don’t call me late to dinner, bitches. It’s still me, CC. If you’ve forgotten who I am (which I doubt) there’s a bio page or something around here. Figure it out. (Obviously, I’m not the pleasant…

Whatever happened to….(4)

Happy New Year, folks!   “Whatever Happened To….” Wednesday took a bit of a breather over the holidays, but I am determined to keep up a little bit better in the coming year!

Frank Sinatra: Best of the Best

Take a journey with me. Back in time, to when autotune was something unheard of; to when popular music was wrought by big bands and bigger voices; to when the cool chicks wore kitten heels and sprayed hair and the mad men wore suits and fedoras. Everyone drank martinis (shaken, not stirred) and gimlets (vodka,…

Whatever happened to….(3)

Hello, there! You may have noticed that “Whatever happened to….” Wednesday took a little vacation. That was not intended, but between my retail job kicking off our busiest season on Black Friday, and me personally battling a RAGING sinus infection (one that is *still* with me, and appears to still kick my ass every now…

Whatever happened to…. (2)

Hello, all! Kim here again. Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments on last week’s “Whatever happened to….” featuring The Prodigy! I’m back this week with another singer from the 90s. Let’s see if you remember her… Meredith Brooks is undoubtedly best known for her hit single “Bitch,” from 1997. That track much sums…

Whatever happened to….

Hello there, folks! Kim here, with a new and hopefully successful addition to the site, “Whatever happened to?” Wednesdays. The premise is exactly like it sounds: every Wednesday, I, or another Music Mama, will revisit a favorite band or artist from the distant or even recent past that we haven’t heard from in a while…

Cover Off – Wagon Wheel

Psssst – Ri here.  Let’s welcome Kathryn from Coastal Chick as our newest Music Mama!  If you’ve hung around here for any time at all, you know she’s a regular who fits right in with the rest of us nutters.  The fact that she loves music AND writing is a definite plus, and we’re damn…

Ever heard of Breakbeat Jazz? Let Me Introduce You to MoWo

Mocean Worker's 6th Album - Out now!

Imagine this…you turn on the radio, your iPhone, or click onto your favorite music app on your iPad and are greeted with a Japanese American rapper singing, “I’m in my own little world little boys little girls, get down pretty baby, that’s how we get down.” Couple this infectious chorus with a groovalicious 60′s beat…

Coldplay Preview

Coldplay. The (sometimes) polarizing English alternative band is offering a preview of their new music. Their new album, Mylo Xyloto will be released in late October, but is available for pre-order now. The band has also released a preview track (Paradise) that you can listen to on their  website (and right here; see below).

Foo Fighters’ “Back and Forth” ROCKS.

I was a late bloomer when it came to being a Foo Fighters fan. Their style is pretty far away from what I usually listen to (pop, house, electronica, techno…). It wasn’t that I didn’t like their music; it’s just that I didn’t actively follow it. That changed eventually: I have three Foo Fighters fans…
