Laura Leighe — The Laura Leighe EP


Pop

Joshua Boydston
Modern pop music is awful: vapid odes to partying, phoned-in love ballads and bastardized house beats bubbling under some flavor-of-the-moment with a prettier face than voice.

Ripple Green — A Lungful


Rock

Joshua Boydston
Red Hot Chili Peppers and Kings of Leon are two of the biggest rock groups in the world, but you don’t see many bands trying to put the two together. It works better than you might think on Oklahoma City three-piece Ripple Green’s new EP, A Lungful, which speaks worlds of the members’ respective talents.

Femme Fatales: The Complete First Season

Babes, bullets and ... well, that about covers it.


Television series

Rod Lott
Femme Fatales is unlike any previous Skinemax Cinemax adult series in that the nudity, while plentiful, isn’t the reason for its being and, therefore, isn’t dreadfully boring like those others — yes, you, Emmanuelle in Space. If you harbor an equal love for pulp fiction and dangerous curves, the 13 episodes that make up the premiere season’s three-disc set should provide plenty of no-brain, all-bod entertainment.
