No sarcasm for this post. Just wanted to share some good music. I am going to try and do that more (no promises re: sarcasm). Citizen Cope is back. I have been a fan of his since he dropped his self-titled debut in 2002 and recently put some new people on to him. Well, he’s got a new album, The RainWater LP, out digitally today (Feb. 9). The first single is murky yet funky “Healing Hands” (listen below). You can thank me later.

So, I got a good news/bad news email today (or was it yesterday?). The good news is Little Brother is dropping their new album, Left Back, on April 20th… (waiting for applause to die down). The bad news is…
Alicia Keys dropped a video for her new single, “Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart,” this week…
Beyonce dropped the “Video Phone” video this week finally… Umm, wow. Oh, and Lady Gaga is in it too… or so people have been saying. I didn’t see her but watch for yourself below.
*Not from last night's show*
I went to check out SRC/Universal recording artist Melanie Fiona last night at New York’s SOB’s…
Ahh, music and liquor. It’s what every journalist dreams about. I know I am not the only one. So, when the two come together it can be magic — witness the Hennessy Artistry series. And while I don’t drink the “brown juice,” the line-up for the cognac’s fourth annual edition music event is one I can toast to. Want to know who’s performing? Here’s a hint: the photo above.
