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!

First View: All The Lovers : Kylie Minogue

All in all, a very very good video methinks.

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.

I left my heart in Oslo

I love Norway. More pics on my Flickr.

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.

Woof

What was Kelis thinking? This is part of her album artwork, and not a photoshop statement made by a disgruntledĀ fan. Seriously…

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.

Preview video for Kylie’s ‘All The Lovers’

Wow! Looks good!

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!

Live: Jamie Lidell at 229 The Venue

I love Jamie Lidell. He’s just amazing in my eyes. Some people ooze musical talent without even trying, and he’s one of them. I was really looking forward to seeing him tonight, and he didn’t let me down in the slightest. His drummer was out of this world, and he had loads of funny machines that made sounds I’d never heard before in my life. I left the 229 a happier man, with a spring in my step and a tune in my head. Above is the live version of my favourite track on his new album, Compass, called ‘Your Sweet Boom’. It doesn’t sound anything like the recorded version- but then that’s not Jamie’s style!

Sugarcubes vs Diana Vickers

Sugarcubes (i.e. Baby Bjork) had a little hit called ‘Hit’ back in 1991. That same year, a girl called Diana Vickers was born who ended up being on the UK’s X Factor a couple of years ago. If Norah Jones was a cat, she would sound like Diana Vickers. Diana didn’t win the X Factor, but she ended up making an album anyway that was released earlier this month (which got to number 1, and I must admit, I did buy it… sorry… it was made by Guy Sigsworth and Ellie Goulding and I couldn’t resist). Diana has a cover of ‘Hit’ on her album, which I actually really like. See which one you prefer…

New Music: The Mynabirds

Plastic Motown, but not in an irritating Duffy-I’m a serious artist-Diet Coke way. Check out here.

Is this song too cool for Eurovision?

This is Estonia’s entry for Eurovision this year. Word is going round that this is too underground to do well. Say what you want about Eurovision, but every so often it makes people aware that there’s other countries out there that like to experiment with music. I kinda like it.
