Listen To This: Into The Woods

Filed under: Listen To This

Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness may not be a name you know, but Andrew McMahon is a very musical man - having previously been the lead singer and main songwriter of bands Jack's Mannequin and Something Corporate.

He has now gone solo and is making sweet bropop!

Not quite folky, not quite power pop. This is more like Owl City. Cool, left-of-center pop!

The sonic landscape is very compelling but the lyrics and melodies are even more compelling - much more so than Owl City.

Check out the very long titled Cecilia and the Satellite above!

Carly Rae Jepsen & Owl City's Good Time Is Ruled A Rip-Off In Court! Get The Copycat Deets HERE!

Well this is the total opposite of an AH-Mazing evening!

Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City's hit track Good Time was sued for for copyright infringement back in 2012…

And it looks like they just lost their case!

BMI (the company who collects royalties from the song) is now being order to pay over $800k to the lesser known vocalist Ally Burnett, who the song apparently rips off!

If you listen closely, Ally's ear candy, Ah, It's a Love Song, does sound trés similar - but your humble opinion is ALWAYS appreciated.

Do you think the ruling was fair?!

UPDATE: There has so far been NO ruling in this case by the court. The plaintiff actually dismissed her claims against BMI and agreed that royalties deposited by BMI can be released to the lawyers for other defendants in the case. That part of the claim has nothing to do with Carly Rae or Owl City.

Ch-ch-check out both videos…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Tegan And Sara Lend Their Voices To New Oreo Commercial During The Grammys! Watch HERE!

tegan and sara lend voice to oreo jingle during grammys

Most people tend to go with the dull and boring choice of eating their Oreos with a little bit of milk.

But if you ask us, the best way to eat them is with a nice tall glass of Tegan and Sara!

The insanely addicting cookies recently announced they would be unrolling a few new flavors including Cookie Dough and Marshmallow Crispy, and they've hired the rock n' roll sisters to help get their message across!

The cookie pushers at Oreos had their ad agency write up a jingle for the girls, and Tegan and Sara stepped up to the mic for a new ad that's set to air during the Grammys!

The indie rock goddesses aren't the first artists to lend their voices to the cookie company, as both Kacey Musgraves and Owl City have also recorded commercials for them in the past!

Seriously, this tune is almost as addicting to our ears as Oreos are to lab rats' taste buds!

Ch-ch-check out the jingle …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
