VIDEO: NOBLESSE OBLIGE: “RUNAWAY”

Here’s the new video by Berlin based duo Noblesse Oblige for their new single “Runaway.”  The eerie video was directed by Chris Corner, otherwise known as IAMX, and it’s quite a trip.  (Lots of flashing and rapid stuff though, so you might not want to watch it if you have a seizure disorder.) ...

REVIEW: THE JOY FORMIDABLE: WOLF’S LAW

The Joy Formidable’s proper full-length debut album was called The Big Roar and roar it did. They were all about the roar, singer/guitarist Rhiannon “Ritzy” Bryan mad like a rabid wolf, howling in the night. On the cover of their new album, Wolf’s Law, the wolf is dead and has flowers growing out...

REVIEW: THE KNIFE: SHAKING THE HABITUAL

The Knife is a duo comprised of brother and sister Olof Dreijer and Karin Dreijer Andersson, the later of which has released some glorious electro-pop during recent years under the name Fever Ray. Shaking the Habitual is their first proper album of new material since 2006’s Silent Shout. It’s difficult to put my...

VIDEO: GARBAGE: “THE ONE”

Garbage recently had a fan art contest to celebrate their tour of Mexico.  They made this video for “The One,” one of the deluxe edition bonus tracks from Not Your Kind Of People, using that fan art.  And it’s awesome.    ...

REVIEW: IAMX: THE UNIFIED FIELD

When Sneaker Pimps dismissed their intoxicating singer Kelli Ali after just one album — the brilliant trip-hop masterpiece that is Becoming X — I was devastated. There were two bands I was obsessed with at the time, Garbage and Sneaker Pimps. And the idea of Sneaker Pimps sans Kelli was as absurd as...

VIDEO: PSY: “GENTLEMAN”

Behold Psy’s new video for his just-released single “Gentleman.”  The video shows Psy being anything but a gentleman as he plays pranks on various people, mostly pretty girls.  It’s kind of funny, but also pretty mean-spirited.  Not sure what we think about it as of yet.     Read Michael McCarthy’s review of...

VIDEO: JESSIE WARE: “IMAGINE IT WAS US”

Jessie Ware has just unleashed a video for “Imagine It Was Us,” one of the bonus tracks from her forthcoming U.S. debut.  (We know it’s restricted from playback here, that you’ll have to go to Youtube to watch it, but we still wanted to point it out anyway because it’s a marvelous song...

REVIEW: PARAMORE: PARAMORE

It’s old news by now: during December of 2010 two of Paramore’s founding members, brothers Josh and Zac Farro, quit the Nashville, Tennessee-bred band, shocking fans who had no idea that they were even having trouble. Initially, it was said to be an amicable split, but Josh eventually blogged his version of the...

REVIEW: VIRGINIA LABUAT: NIGHT & DAY

Night & Day is Spanish singer/songwriter Virginia Labuat’s first album entirely in English, but you’d never know that from listening to it. Her pronunciation is better than that of many artists whose only language is English and her command of the language in her lyrics is always spot on, sans awkward phrasing. Suffice...

REVIEW: CARLA BRUNI: LITTLE FRENCH SONGS

It’s appropriate that the album cover of Carla Bruni’s fourth album, Little French Songs, is a simple photo of the Italian-French singer and a presumably acoustic guitar because, well, that’s what the majority of this album consists of, Carla simply singing along to acoustic guitar. To that end, it’s so very mellow that...
