MUSIC: What to Listen to Now

OUR NEW FAVORITE:

You're My Lover Now, The Teeth

(Park the Van Records)

We could give you lots of reasons to listen to Philly's alt-pop band The Teeth-loopy arrangements, tight rhythms, serious-silly lyrics, comparisons to '60s pop and '70s glam rock-but you just need to know one thing: The Teeth are for people who relish music and life.

JAY-Z APPROVED:

I Am, Chrisette Michele

(To-do list for the ladies: Let go of baggage; achieve financial independence.) She is Chrisette, hear her roar.
