Are you ready for the rat to deliver another LQ LP, made up of two decent mp3s and the rest fillers ? Well Darkchild has confirmed that he's working on material for Rihanna's next album. Here's hoping there's some major Rated R realness cycle number two about to kick in. To be continued.
Zooey Deschanel's taken a break from being in front of the camera to direct herself from behind the camera in She & Him's new I Could've Been Your Girl. Nothing quite as charmless as someone desperately trying to be charming.
Apparently Rolling Stone got the most revealing interview ever with the 'mysterious' French electro-poppers, Daft Punk cover Rolling Stone magazine. Much to be read . Much awesomeness indeed. And the walk home from the Chet Faker gig tonight I finally got around to letting their newest long_one come in me ears; Lose Yourself To Dance, Instant Crush, and the iconic Beach Boyesque jam Doin' It Right are welcome to come again.
Will.I.Am has unleashed the Bang Bang video for his contribution to the Jay-Z curated soundtrack for that film I ain't seen yet. Innit the he-popper performs with a 1920s brass band on a tiered podium with the entire video being shot in black and white. Don't hate it, saying that I won't play with it again.
Ahead of her gig at Shacklewell Arms tonight, Foxes unleashed the new Beauty Queen mp3, whilst I head to Cargo to foxate on Chet Faker's live show. Play with her, her features will give you life.
Loving the Jagwar Ma's new single Man I Need, sadly though the accompanying animated visuals treatment are too heavy on the psychedelic cheddar for me afternoon delight.
Mrs Carter, known to some as Beyonce, has unleashed a video diary about her latest tour and tonsillitis. Cause the two are connected. And cause conspiracy theorists will say she filmed this post the cancelled concert.
As posted earlier today, Kelly Rowland returned the co-vocalist favour by duetting on The-Dream's non-Rihanna cover, Where Have You Been. Apart from the song generally being amazing and me doing a 180 on KRow of latel, you should watch their Jay Leno performance for the hair-weaving-backwards giggle Kelly lets out at the 2:30 mark. All in all maje maze etc.
Tame Impala lose bassist. No, they haven't driven off or something and can't find him now, rather their bassist, Nick Allbrook, has quit the band. You can read all about it here .
NME continues to impress in their series of fantastic new magazine covers as the rock giant that is Josh Homme covers this week's NME, whilst the rest of the guest stars (Elton, Reznor, Arctic, Grohl ..) from their remarkable new LP are hanging on a thread not unlike NSYNC's No Strings Attached. Where's Jake Shears, who also features on the LP ?! Perhaps he's down south, coming at you via the x-rated edition.
Properbsessing over The National's latest LP, may be up there with Feathers as one of me fave long_ones of the 013. The American indie-rockers dropped via the Late Show With David Letterman last night, whilst I was at the Postal Service phenomenal gig, to perform Don't Swallow The Cap. So beautiful. So foxy. Despite looking like undergraduate anthropology lecturers.
Taylor Swift's reaction to Justin Bieber kissing Selena Gomez at the Billboards makes you wonder why she can't keep a man.
Post that travesty that was HeadBand, B.o.B. returns with a Lupe Fiasco influenced (aint a bad thang) new single Through My Head. He really needs to go on tour, or perhaps he is, but if so he needs to pop across that pond this summer.
According to Seventeen magazine you can looks at gutter-bound as Little Mix, for very lil do£$h. I swear that first to the left is a new addition to the band.
Beyonce's Timbaland produced, Pepsi-only crafted toon Grown Woman has leaked in full, full of drums intertwining with gasping claps and Bey and Tim's vocals scatting about. The crowd noises throw me off, the rest got me staying on the dancefloor. Love this. Etc.
With almost a year since it earned a place in your heart, Swedish popping duo Icona Pop performed their soon to be irritating smash-single I Love It at the Billboard Awards last night. Tbf once this mp3 disappears I can't see them remaining huge though, and I don't see that as a bad thing.
Kelly Rowland has earned a place back on me iPod fyi. First it was her Dirty Laundry collabs with The-Dream last week, not it's another jointed mp3 from the dynamic duo. Rihanna ha impact, the pair have unleashed their original new toon, Where Have You Been. I've just been at the Postal Service gig incase you're asking.
It's a fascinatingly disorientating new video from Dirty Beaches for Casino Lisboa.
You're gonna fall in love with Dreamers once you check out this footage of Savoir Adore performing their airy electro disco number on AXS Live. It's indie-popping perfection coming in your modern day Belle & Sebastian influenced ears ..
It's all gone biblical referencing in the Roc Nation HQ of recent, with Kanye West revealing his Yeezus album title over the weekend, now J.Cole gets all churchly on us with his Born Sinner artwork (coming in your June 24th ears).
