Marcus totally wrote this about fiancee Carey Mulligan, right?

Listen To This: The Scottish Do It So Well!

Filed under: Listen To This

Love this so much!

Amy Macdonald is back with a smash!!!

Folk yet mainstream. Accessible yet very much her.

Like a train, Slow It Down is anything but slow. The percussion of this song propels it forward so powerfully!

Her voice is so enchanting! And the melody is so sweet!

This is a love song but it feels like an anthem!!!

It reminds us of The Pretenders meets Edwin McCain.

Check it out above!

RPatz Wants To Play Jeff Buckley!

robert-pattinson-wants-to-play-the-part-of-jeff-buckley-in-biopic

We have to admit - he looks the part better than any of the other contenders!

Robert Pattinson is apparently ready to showcase his vocal stylingz in a much bigger way than ever before - as he's approached producers of a potential Jeff Buckley biopic in hopes to secure the role of the late folk singer!

Producer Michelle Sy confirms:

"I've met actors who are keen on the part and Robert was one…The actor must be able to play music and sing, or at least make it believable he can do that."

And despite competition from James Franco and James Marsden for the role, even Buckley's mother, Mary Guibert, thinks our sparkly vamp is the perfect potential to play her son!

She reveals:

"Robert is a fine young actor. I'm flattered he's been linked to the project. When the times comes we'll give everybody an opportunity to be seen and heard."

He certainly has some tough competition, but this part actually does seem right up his alley!

We just hope that whomever ends up winning the part can do Buckley justice!

What do U think?? Should RPatz play Jeff Buckley??

Mandy Moore Talks More About Her New Album!

Filed under: Music MinuteMandy Moore

mandy-moore-talks-more-about-her-new-album

We LOVE that she's continuing to take her sound in this direction!

Mandy Moore recently opened up about her still-untitled upcoming album, but revealed that she's currently being influenced a lot by guitar-driven folk music from the '70s.

She explains:

"I'm stuck in the '70s. I think it'll always have that kind of influence. Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, Harry Nilsson, McCartney - that's the sort of stuff I'm really inspired and influenced by. No, it's still too early [for a title]. That always comes at the end for me. I can't go into having a collection of songs and already have a name for it. Gosh, that's [Factory-line pop] where I started as a kid when you don't have any creative input or input at all. That's what ends up happening. It's nice to have the control to make choices now. I'm not necessarily sure what it will sound like but I definitely have enough to write about."

Excellent, bb! That's where your best material comes from!

Your style has come such a long way, and we think that you've really found what works for you! Especially because you rarely hear voices like hers in that genre of music!

We're so excited to hear what you're working on!

Thoughts??
