Alli Klein: Family of Noise writesVideo World Premiere: “Comfort Service” by So Pretty

When was the last time you lived the lavish hotel lifestyle? Now's your chance for the next 3:07 anyway...

Feast your eyes on this fresh new video from local Chicago group So Pretty for their song “Comfort Service” out now on their latest release Suck It Up from Bernice Records &Tapes. Suck It Up wears many musical genre hats over the course of the record, and "Comfort Service" sounds like a long lost B-52s B side you didn't know you were missing.

by Josh Friedberg

For such an icon, Michael Jackson can be a polarizing figure for biographers—and for pop culture fans in general. Some works focus on his musical accomplishments, while others focus on his tabloid-worthy plastic surgeries and alleged pedophilia.

Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper’s 2015 book MJ: The Genius of Michael Jackson may sound like a fan’s testament to an exceptional artist and superstar, but the title is somewhat misleading.
