Waiting in Vain

I'm sitting here in my apartment in (almost) silence, touching up an article I need to get out of the way before I leave for dinner with a friend who's visiting the city. The sun is spilling through the window, taunting me a little, since I could be sprawled out with a book on the grass in the park today. Instead, I'm here stressing. The lease to my overpriced apartment is expiring in September and my roommates and I are in a state of desperation, trying to find a better deal on another one in the same complex. There are some rotten complications, as there always are when it comes to moving in New York, and it's got me on edge. The feeling of mortality has come over me; I can be consumed at any moment, left without a roof over my head! So I sit here waiting for the leasing agent to call back with any news.

Same Song, Different Tune

Kate Nash and Lilly Allen may have been crowned pop princesses, but don't let the wrapping fool you. Their music is as dark and seething as mid-nineties sensations Alanis Morissette and Fiona Apple.

Winehouse’s union with Blake Fielder-Civil is ironclad enough to withstand addiction, fame, and the occasional physical row, making Back to Black this year’s top commitment album. Her soulful voice is smoky for a reason, but it’s sincere, too—and that mix can prove romantic to every taken lady, from hipster to grandma (or those who are both), any night of the week.

Charming Art Brut front man Eddie Argos is the biggest romantic in punk rock, and he’s particularly skilled at capturing the excitement of new relationships on It’s a Bit Complicated. In speak-sung lyrics tossed haphazardly over chugging riffs, he’s passionate and hilarious (“People in love lie around and get fat/I didn’t want us to end up like that”).

With slick soulful hooks, electro grooves, and rump shakers, Will covers the single life from reconciliation (“One More Chance”) to giving props to good genes (“I Got It From My Mama”).
