Fugitive Air is the latest single from of Montreal’s upcoming album Lousy With Sylvianbriar. This single is highly reminiscent of The Beatles and Lynyrd Skynyrd, which is hopefully a preview for the style of the rest of the album. The classic rock ‘n roll feel makes for a refreshing and relaxing listen. The album is […]
The woman John Lennon could never get. That’s Astrid Kirchherr. The man who could? Stuart Sutcliff, the fifth Beatle. What story is more interesting than the rise of the Fab Four? The story of the Fab Fifth: Stu and his lover Astrid. Germany 1960. She’s a photographer, he’s an artist and bassist in the soon-to-be biggest band in the world.
Jim Carrey is a master jokes man. I have loved him ever since I saw The Mask in the cinemas many years ago. I have also loved The Beatles since before I was born, when my dad would play them over and over. So what would happen if those two things combined: Jim Carrey in […]
My parents are huge Beatles fans, much like many other people of their generation, and I wish I had enough money to get them this Beatles magnetic hair game. Of course, knowing my mom, who is a cake decorator, she would get icing and chocolate all over it.
As if the lyrics weren’t out there enough (heck, they even attracted a Chuck Berry lawsuit), this brilliant flash animated video plays dramatically on those classic Beatles’ stylistic sensibilities.
I don’t know if it’s nostalgia or what, but when the greatest rock band of all time, The Beatles, put out a product, I’m an instant fan. It looks like high-end brand Comme Des Garcon got in on the Beatle game too.

Rubblebucket second track from their latest EP, Triangular Daisies, is a cover of The Beatles classic, Michelle, off the Rubber Soul album. In the hands of the Brooklyn group, McCartney’s somber ballad has been transformed into a spacey, orchestral groove.
Music Philosophy describes itself as ‘a weekly graphic-typographic interpretation of philosophical song quotes’. I like to describe it as the coolest way to enjoy songs weekly without having to listen to them.
Much like the beautiful, thumb-sized songbird from which the band derives its name, the music of Ortolan possesses the kind of startling beauty that reintroduces wonder to the weary. With playful lyrical themes ranging from sandcastles to buckets of light to fanciful creatures following you home, it s music with sass and spunk, born from fierce […]
John Lennon denied this track was ever about LSD. Really? Well, ok. Whoever created the Yellow Submarine animation was certainly, ah, influenced by the pleasures of the time. Lennon instead claimed that the song was based around a painting his young son Julian did of his childhood friend, Lucy O’Donnell, who sadly died from lupus […]
Beatallica is a crossover American band that plays songs of The Beatles with a Metallica touch. Formed by Kliff McBurtney, Jaymz Lennfield, Ringo Larz and GRG Hammetson, a non-commercial policy has ruled the band since 2004 in order to avoid lawsuits from the original bands, though apparently, the members of Metallica support the band and […]
