Matt Johnson and Kim Schifino have been rocking out since 2004, with Matt on keyboards and Kim on drums. They have a DIY attitude towards their music and do just about everything when it comes to putting out their albums.

Put This on Your iPod: MC Lars' The Graduate

This week's artist is someone who's totally inspired me growing up. While most people spent their college years drinking and dreaming about what they'll be after they graduate (guilty!), MC Lars was doing something about his dreams.

Put This on Your iPod: Cut Copy's Zonoscope

Rarely do I get albums based off a random review I find on the internet. Ironic? Yes, but I usually wait until one of my friends has the album and I can listen to it or hear good things from them before I buy. Well, last Tuesday that all changed. While I was perusing the interwebs I came across a review for Cut Copy's Zonoscope that piqued my curiosity.

Put This on Your iPod: Belle and Sebastian Write About Love

To be honest, I've always been a little torn about Valentine's Day. For me it's kind of like communism; while great in theory, it almost never works in the execution. Considering last year I got two Snickers bars from my now-ex (gee, I wonder why), I don't have high hopes for Valentine's Day, but I'm not a complete Cupid-hater either.

Put This on Your iPod: AFI's The Art of Drowning

This week, I'm in nostalgia/angry mode. Angry because my Dbag of an ex-boyfriend has decided to try to start calling me again (barf). Nostalgic because when I'm trying to blow off steam, I tend to go into organization mode and this time around, my music collection got my attention. While re-labeling my iTunes collection I came across an old favorite album of mine: AFI's 'The Art of Drowning.'

Put This On Your iPod: Mumford and Sons' Sigh No More

When the Grammy nominations were released for this year, I was thrilled to see that Mumford and Sons were up for best new artist and best rock song for "Little Lion Man". I heard that song last year on the radio and immediately went home to download their album, Sigh No More, and every track is better than the last.

So here we are; a brand new year. What's more appropriate than to get it started on the right note with some fresh new music?

Put This on Your iPod: Death Cab for Cutie's Plans

Here in central Texas, it doesn't really snow during winter. It just gets cold, rainy, and miserable. For some reason, I like to embrace rainy days and stay inside to be all gloom and doom. I want to do this today especially while I recover from some bad choices on New Year's Eve.

Put This on Your iPod: She & Him Volume 1

The non-stop Elf marathons last week made me realize just how much I love Zooey Deschanel movies. She's just so...cute! She also happens to be multi-talented.

Put This on Your iPod: Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

I know I'm one of the lucky few out there right now, but as of Friday I was completely donezo with finals/studying/projects/school BS. And I'm thrilled. Why? Because this means I can get my party on and drink the last semester away. I thought what better to do this with than with Kanye West's newest album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

Put This on Your iPod: Alaska in Winter – Dance Party in the Balkans

Boof. Finals Time. AKA the darkest of dark times for college students who are holed up in libraries with nothing but a Jimmy John's sandwich and a prayer.

Put This on Your iPod: Gorillaz – Plastic Beach

The temperature is finally starting to drop here in Texas so to say TTFN to those hot days by the pool, I thought I would kick things off with my favorite album of the summer: Plastic Beach.

Sexy Time: Sexy Music

But then we figured out the perfect way to drown our sexy noises while keeping my room at a comfortable 20 or so degrees – music. Sure, it’s not silence, and it still traveled through the walls, but I guarantee my mother appreciated the sound of slow bass late at night a lot more than hearing anything else coming through our walls.
