May 2013 was nothing short of a stellar month for music, and truly the first great music month of 2013. Without a doubt, the biggest news of the month was Daft Punk’s return to album crafting, with the masterful “Random Access Memories” but many other great records were released as well. Here are the ten most essential albums of the month:
Will Wiesenfield’s first record under the Baths moniker was an eclectic, upbeat collection of electronic songs that was both spastic and innocent, but most importantly fun. The follow up, “Obsidian” is a far cry from that record thoug...

South Korean pop-idol PSY released the new music video for his latest single "Gentleman" over the weekend. Let's just say it has all the comedic spice that made "Gangnam Style" so fun to watch repeatedly, even if the song isn't quite as catchy. The song is good, probably better than most, but it just isn't as fun to listen to as it is to watch.
"Gentleman" features PSY in his trademark suit and glasses, doing all sorts of ungentlemanly things - pulling chairs out from underneath women, pushing papers off copiers and scanning his face instead, stealing soccer balls from small children, even...

The idea of singing in front of a large group of strangers is often a terrifying one, but luckily karaoke exists to allow for this with little or no pressure on the singer. Alcohol is also usually a contributing factor to the lack of pressure, but still it gives the chance for those who can't normally sing or are afraid of performing the chance to get up in front of others (who may or may not be intoxicated) and sing and perform. There are plenty of great songs to sing at karaoke, but there are a few particular ones that should be avoided at all cost. Here are ten of those songs.

Following her success as one of the Pussycat Dolls, Jessica Sutta has established a new identity for herself as a solo artist, one that sets her apart from both the history of her former group and other female pop singers. Just after the release of her new single "Again," BFTV caught up with Jessica to ask her about the new course of her career.
"Honestly, my whole life I just always loved being an entertainer," she said. "I promised myself at a young age that I was always going to wake up loving what I do - and I love every moment!"
While Jessica enjoyed the seven years she spent as one ...

Pop princess Avril Lavigne has finally unveiled the lead single for her upcoming currently-untitled fifth studio album!
The single, titled “Here’s To Never Growing Up,” is about youth and having fun no matter how old you are. Just like the title suggests, the 28 year old Canadian singer vows to never change the way she is and “growing up”.
The upbeat anthemic song, with its pop-rock melody and catchy chorus that will definitely stick in its listeners’ heads, will probably do pretty well on the charts and I can foresee it becoming as big as, or maybe even bigger than Taylor Swift’s “We Are...

Arrows Over Athens’ Atlas EP is a four-song barrage of emotion, one stacked top to bottom with smartly-constructed pop-punk gems, led by the Forecast-esque vocal tandem of Randy Burlingame and Mimi Herrick, a dynamic duo that shines as bright as the sun throughout this EP.
Beginning with the immaculate title track “Atlas,” Arrows Over Athens waste little time in exhibiting a potent mix of zealous fervor and impassioned power, a lethal combination that continues throughout all facets of the next two tracks, “Truth Be Told” and “Oh, We Tried (But We Can’t Change Fate).”
The title track is a...
