Jon Ehrens is five years younger than his sister Emily. It might not seem too important now that they're both adults, but when you're a kid, that's a big gap. Which is why, even though they came from a musical family, the two never really had much success as a band. But last year, when Ehrens began recording '80s-influenced synth-pop songs as White Life, he realized he needed a female singer. He tried a few people around Baltimore, but none stuck. His parents had suggested Ehrens and Emily collaborate, but he worried about the complications of mixing family and music.

NEW YORK - Every media circus needs its sideshow. Michael Jackson's acquittal Monday appeared to leave the Rev. Al Sharpton, a Jackson adviser and major megaphone for racial anger, in the awkward position of having precious little to be angry about. "I think the criminal justice system has worked this time," Mr. Sharpton shouted over the midtown Manhattan traffic into a bouquet of microphones. "I think this is a vindication for people that believe people are innocent until proven guilty.

When I spoke with Wye Oak's Jenn Wasner earlier this year, we spent most of the time talking about her solo project, the excellent Flock of Dimes. But later in the interview, Wasner noticeably perked up when asked about a pop collaboration with White Life's Jon Ehrens. "It's some of the best stuff we've ever done," Wasner said. "It's happening more slowly than both of us would like. He's a super talented songwriter. I shine in the pop spectrum more than I was expecting. " The duo calls themselves Dungeonesse, and the first single and video was released today, and it backs up Wasner's claims in an impressive way. "Drive You Crazy" is a skittering dance track that should have no problem getting people out of their seats.
