Reach for the Sky

Sure, most 17-year-olds are convinced that they're "the shit". The difference between those teens and Sky Ferreira is that she actually is. Sorry kids...

Her wide ranging vocals, her born-n-raised Hollywood style and her Olsen twin-esque (but so much cooler) look all contribute to her coolness factor. And while most LA-based, blond, pop, teen acts make me cringe, she makes me jealous.

Expect the release of her album "As If!" on March 8th of this year (courtesy of the cutting-edge EMI/Capitol Records). Do yourself a favor and watch her videos. She is what one may call "optical nutrition." (Shame on you. She's 17. Gross).
My picks are "One", "American Dream", "17", and (my favorite) "Obsession":

Sky Ferreira - Obsession

TIm WIlliam - Tripping starring Travie McCoy (OFFICIAL VIDEO)

Tripping over Tim William

Should you be unaware of this electro-pop craze that has been sweeping the nation, you may want to give Tim William (not to be confused with Tim Williams) a quick listen. You may also want to climb out from under that rock from which you've been living. Just a suggestion.

In any case, Tim William does the genre good with tracks like "Tripping," "Vampire SEX", "Sun and Moon," "Move It Girl" (featuring Travie Mccoy) and even a collaboration with Bjorn Yttling entitled "Feel Young."

Check out his myspace page to hear these and more ( But check out his video for "Tripping" first.
