The Civil Wars, The Civil Wars: Album Review

The Civil Wars, The Civil Wars: Album Review

I’m pretty interested to see what public court of opinion and interest is for a sophomore effort from the folk-rock duo of John Paul White and Joy Williams (aka The Civil Wars).  After taking iTunes by storm and in turn debuting in Billboard’s Top 20 with their debut Barton Hollow (2011), they seemed an overnight success story…even if it’d been two years in the making.  The promotional and touring cycle included Grammy nominations for both Best Folk Album and Best Country [...]

Welcome back to our weekly Carlton Shuffle! Once again we asked the PopBlerd! crew what they were listening to this week. There wasn’t a big response (everybody looking forward to next week’s long holiday weekend?) so we threw in what we received with the Michael Jackson songs we wrote about on Tuesday’s fourth anniversary of the King of Pop’s death, along with two of the theme songs (that were actually songs) from our top 10 sitcoms and wa-lah! We have this week’s Carlton Shuffle. Enjoy!

Virtual Insanity: Introducing the… XBox One?

At 10 am PST this morning, Microsoft unveiled the next generation of the  XBox gaming console to the unwashed masses. The results were… interesting, to say the least. We can look forward to more news in a few weeks at E3, but for now, here are eight things we learned from the announcement. #1. Microsoft is REALLY into Television Now A good half of the press conference, at least, was dedicated not to video games but to television watching: quite [...]
