This Week in Music : Weird Al Takes 'Mandatory Fun' To The Top

This Week in Music : Weird Al Takes 'Mandatory Fun' To The Top
“Weird Al” Yankovic did the unthinkable this week – debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200! That’s right, Weird Al’s latest album Mandatory Fun sold a robust 104,000 copies. Sure for other artists 104,000 copies might not be the ‘end all be all,’ but considering last week no albums surpassed the 100,000 copies mark and that comedy albums don’t generate those kinds of numbers, Al’s doing big things.

Jason Mraz was expected to put some pressure on Weird Al for top honors, and he did, coming up just short at 102,000 copies with Yes!. Even so, 102,000 copies is fantastic in the current market....

5 Seconds Of Summer And Common Drop New Albums: This Week In Mus
July continues to be something of a slow month for new album releases. While there have been some solid, arguably even notable releases, no ‘blockbuster’ albums have been released.

For rap lovers, they need look no further than the Midwest’s don, Common, who extends his lengthy career. Here’s 5 albums to check out this week.

1) 5 Seconds of Summer, 5 Seconds of Summer (Capitol)

CD Review: Concord America - "Suns Out Guns Out" (Post-Echo)

CD Review: Concord America - "Suns Out Guns Out" (Post-Echo)
Part Weezer, part Black Keys, but all cool would be an astute way to describe Concord America’s Suns Out Guns Out EP. Another way to describe this album is, well, just plain cool. While Suns Out Guns Out on the whole is an explosion of fuzzed out quirky indie rock – mind the latter - rock (the monstrous riffs of “Vanilla Bastard” are not to be missed, “Crown Vic” is sheer garage inspired madness). “So Gay” is the purest of diamonds in the rough; a hit single lying in wait that could impact at radio tomorrow if given the chance, and the fun doesn’t stop there on Suns Out Guns Out. There’s al...

CD Review: I Can See Mountains - "Gone Beachy"
As fate may have it, rumors of the demise of Buffalo’s quirky powerpop merchants I Can See Mountains have been greatly exaggerated. After playing what many thought to be their farewell show last December, band members Matt Cox and Kevin Hoffman have emerged from the depths with a new EP in Gone Beachy, a three song release that heaps loads of sunshine upon listeners. From the massive opening riff of “My Aquatic,” which features the infectious wordplay and idiosyncratic songwriting that made the band a fan favorite in the first place and the bouncy call-and-response of the Blink-182-esque “S...

Rumor Patrol: Three Babies For The Kardashians, Another For Shak
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

The Three Kardashian Sisters Are Expecting: The cover of Life & Style's latest issue claims Kourtney, Kim, AND Khloe Kardashian are all pregnant at the same time! While we knew about Kourtney being pregnant since June, it would be quite the coup for the mag to reveal Kim and Khloe's pregnancies before their E! TV partners. It also makes the story a little fishy...

Verdict: False. While Kim has talked a...

1) The Black Eyed Peas, “I Gotta Feeling”

from The E.N.D. (2009)
