oh, what fun.

Don’t you just love new music? I know I do. Here are some good finds I’ve found since I’ve last blogged.

Mini VivaLeft My Heart In Tokyo

I am obsessed with this song and this video (especially Britt with the VV Brown hair). Britt and Frankee are their names, another project from Xenomania, the production team that are behind the success of the great Girls Aloud. This video reminds me of the Spice Girls’ video, 2 Become 1. Most likely due to the fast-paced filming of the urban scenery. Britt also reminds me of Lovefoxxx from CSS. Just sayin’.


“Haven’t I seen you somewhere before? You look familiar. You wanna dance? Yeah? I guess I just don’t recognize you with your clothes on.”

Incredible, no? I have to say, I was not a big fan of ‘Hard Candy’, mostly because of my dislike 4 Minutes, but this is genius. ‘Confessions’ is easily her best album since, well, forever and I think this could have been a B-Side to that album.

Dan BlackAlone

This album is amazing. I would recommend it to anyone. Dan Black is definitely one to watch out for. Too bad talent like this isn’t exposed enough here in the states. His videos are really creative and this stop-motion video for Alone is defintely my favourite.

Alright, so these are just some of the music I’ve come across in the past few weeks. Check out my profile (link is on the right of the page) to see what I’ve been listening to lately.



La Roux

May 31, 2009


Everybody, La Roux. La Roux, this is…everbody!

I must say, searching through the music of the charts of the United Kingdom was probably one of the best things I have ever done. Great finds, some not so great. But the people of the UK do know good electro-pop, and La Roux is a great example of how good of music comes from across the sea. She was recently here in Los Angeles, but the show was scheduled on Easter Sunday, so there was no chance I would be able to go to that. Hopefully she will be back soon. Although I would love to see Girls Aloud first, but the chances of them coming to America are really low.

Her debut album has yet to be released, but I sure hope it will be streaming and scrobbled onto my profile really soon. Until then I’ll leave you with her current single, “Bulletproof”.

p.s. Don’t you just love her Bowie-esque hair?


new & beautiful things

May 31, 2009

A lot of new things have come to my attention in the past few months. New music, new people, and new works of art.


ladyhawke1 This, my friends, is Ladyhawke. One of the MANY artists I have discovered in the last few  months. She is a genius when it comes to melodies, choruses and synth-work. I highly  recommend that you check out her myspace [] to listen to her  tracks. Her album is so incredible. A lot of catchy songs the self-titled album, “Back of the Van”  and “Another Runaway” being my favorite. There’s also a hint of the Buggles’ “Video Killed the  Radio Star” in the ” latter.

girls_aloud Ladies and gentleman, I present to you Girls Aloud. I have no idea why I have never heard of them  before. Let me tell you, if you like great dance beats, amazing voices, and cute girls, this group of girls  are for you. They may be #15 on my chart lists, but trust me when I say that they will be  moving up that chart as quickly as…. well, really quickly.  I recommend “Girl Overboard” from their  album “Tangled Up” (yes, i own all of their albums now), or you can just check out their myspace  [] and add all their tracks to your myspace playlist. You know you want to!  I just checked and now they’re #5 on my top artists list (told you!).

bjork5kt0 Have you ever listened to an artist and then just completely forgot about them, then suddenly  realised that you’re in love with them after a certain amount of time? Confusing or not, that’s  what happened to me with Björk. An ex-friend introduced me to her a couple of years ago and  I didn’t really mind her as much, but am completely in love with her now. “Hyperballad” is  such a great song musically and instrumentally. It gives me chills when I listen, and that really  doesn’t happen to me often. So, i suggest you buy all her albums and fall in love with her like I have.


Kristen_Wiig-1 This is Kristen Wiig. She is currently on her fourth (?) season of Saturday Night Live and is one of my    favorite current cast members (past being Maya Rudolph). You may have seen her in this year’s  “Adventureland” and 2007’s “Knocked Up”, but to see her as her best role, I strongly suggest you go  to Hulu [] and search for “Kristen Wiig Penelope Therapy”.  Do it and let me know what you  think.
