First Watch: Amanda Fondell ‘Bastard’

This track by Amanda Fondell has been getting a lot of buzz in Scandinavia, probably because of it’s title. And it’s bubblegum brashness one of the many reasons I’m so drawn to music from the region. I feel like bursting into giggles when the chorus kicks in- but isn’t that what pop is so good for?

First Watch: Medina ‘Boring’

Marina & The Diamonds is very hit and miss with me. Her latest album (singles aside), wasn’t too great in my opinion. But she has a huge, passionate gay following and knows how to work it with videos like this.
