New Music: Jamaica

French electro/ indie from the Ed Banger family. More sensible than Breakbot but a more playful than DJ Mehdi. Will see them in London at Barfly tommorrow. Check out here.

New Music: Love Generation

A new girl band from the RedOne production team (the guy who makes Lady Gaga’s stuff). It’s fresh, makes you want to dance a little. Check out here.

New Music: The Superimposers

The Beach Boys have returned to the 21st century in the form of… The Superimposers. Check out here.

New Music: Gypsy & The Cat

Remember a couple of years ago there was a massive surge of Aussie dance acts invading the UK? What happened to all of those? Some were outstanding. Anyway, this is an Aussie duo who make summery songs that mix a little rock with a little warm electro. Check out here.

New Music: Million Young

Soft electro with some bounce… a little in the league of Washed Out and Active Child. Check out here.

Uganda and those gays, eh!

This video is just… hilarious! But kinda sad at the same time… then he says ‘poo poo’ and suddenly it’s hilarious again. Not for the light-hearted.

A printer made from Lego and felt tip pens

Amazing! I want to make one right now! It seems as though a lot of people make these Lego printers, but this by far is the best!

McDonald’s wants some pink bucks

This new ad for McDonald’s is airing in France at the moment. It’s the sort of advert that really only the French could/ would do… bittersweet irony cased up between two buns and some ketchup.

Live: Lady Gaga at O2 Arena

I went to see Lady Gaga yesterday in London. I was tired of listening to her songs being overplayed on the radio, so while I was excited, I was still a bit unsure whether I would enjoy the Monster Ball Tour. Alas, she blew my mind away with the craziest, most fucked up show I think I’ve ever seen in my life. Amazing!

Jeg skal til Norge

I will be in Oslo, Norway, for the weekend so I don’t think I’ll be able to post anything up in that time… First holiday abroad in 5 years! Anyone else going to the Eurovision Song Contest?

New Music: The Like

The Like have actually been around for ages, but this is the first I’ve heard of them – probably because their new record has been produced by Mark Ronson and it’s my kind of groove. Their new stuff is a bit of a cross between that plastic Motown sound Ronson goes for, but with a bit of a dark indie vibe thrown into the mix. It’s reminds me a bit of poprock from the mid 90’s too… Check out here.

Taeyang wants your wives

I don’t have a clue what Taeyang’s on about but it all looks very slick. I think he wants to steal someone’s wife… Very slick video.

K-Pop to cheer you up!

A couple of recent K-Pop masterpieces by the Wonder Girls. The older I get the more excited I get with K-Pop. The rest of the world is trying so hard to look cool, but K-Pop doesn’t need to- it’s super cool!
