I spoke with Aimee Mann today, who will be performing at The State Room soon.

I've liked her work since she was featured prominently in "Magnolia." She doesn't get enough credit for her wit, but you can see it her two new videos from her album "Charmer," released on Tuesday.

The first is the title track, featuring John Hodgman and Laura Linney:
