This week in music releases we got some interesting album features.  From Weezer to Destroyer to Jamiroquai, we got you covered on some of the best (and worst) new albums to pay attention to this week.

Lollapalooza 2010 Entrance
Lollapalooza 2010 kicked off with a bang! We got a great work out from walking from one end of the festival to the other but each trek was well-worth it for all the artists we got to see on the first day. Besides, Friday's headliner was Lady Gaga. Not many people are going to forget that whether they were thinking, "I love her!" or "She's just creepy" or "This is too weird."...

Nothing like some good old fashioned streaking in Times Square. You go Matt and Kim! Don't let the man get you down! Even when you're being pummeled by the man. I wonder what their lessons they learned from making "Lessons Learned"? Possibly, wait for a warmer day to streak? Make sure to watch out for cops instead of looking up at tall buildings? Or that people in NY are surprisingly...

What can I say about Matt and Kim other than the fact that they are one of the best things to happen to parties and mosh pits! When their song, "Yeah Yeah," gained so much popularity that it eventually got remixed by duo, Flosstradamus, we knew that Matt and Kim would begin to unleash the most insanely hyped up beats that were perfect for a night of chaos. They have yet to...

BeatCrave is excited to bring you Brooklyn duo, Matt and Kim, as part of our Know Your NYC Bands series.
