New Music Report: Jemina Pearl

December 9th, 2009
Former Be Your Own Pet frontwoman Jemina Pearl is breaking out on her own with solo album Break It Up, Christian Hoard’s “Christian Rock” new music pick of the week. Pearl’s pal Thurston Moore stars in the video for “I Hate People” from the 22-year-old’s solo debut, and Iggy Pop sings on the track, too. Without her former bandmates, Pearl is still smart, talented and bratty, but she scales down the cartoonishness and ups the ...

Breaking: The Big Pink

December 9th, 2009

Bob Dylan Unwraps “Little Drummer Boy” Video

December 9th, 2009
Bob Dylan’s seasonal Christmas in the Heart continues to dole out visual gifts: the video for Dylan’s take on “Little Drummer Boy” has been unveiled on Amazon.com. This video is Christmas for the eyes, as artist/filmmaker Jeff Scher painstakingly rotoscoped classic films — we’re pretty sure the woman at the 2:10 mark is actress Jane Greer — and home movies with watercolors and crayons. As Rolling Stone previously reported, for the first time in over a ...
