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’.

MadonnaCelebration

“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 last.fm profile (link is on the right of the page) to see what I’ve been listening to lately.

La Roux

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 last.fm 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?
