It’s that time of day, kids. It might as well be a daily tradition that I encounter and feature another up and coming female dark electropop act everyday, and today I get to share with you a haunting song named TV by Australian chanteuse Eves The Behavior. It’s only her second song in as much as a year and a half, but what a enthralling, magnificent statement she makes with the explosive single. Mystique bearing BANKS like atmosphere, Tove Lo like chops, and Charli XCX level sultriness blend together on TV. The single will be out officially on January 19 via Dew Process.

OFFICIAL VID: Ra Ra Riot – Beta Love

January 31, 2013

I have Ra Ra Riot’s new album Beta Love sitting next to me in shrink wrap and can’t wait to finally get around to unwrapping the disc and popping it in. The dance poppy title track from the album is infectious and fun. Its new video brings back footage from the 1980s television show Dance Party. That’s pretty freaking cool. It’s a local San Francisco Bay Area show. I can’t say I really watched it while a child, but I do remember it being on TV.

ZOMG. The National. And Boardwalk Empire. Combined. I just died. I love that show. It’s one of the most well made, intelligent shows on television right now. And The National recorded a cover of an old 1920’s song titled I’ll See You In My Dreams for the show. WHAT? WHAT WHAT? YES! Reblogging the deets below.

By now, most of you have probably heard Lana Del Rey’s lovely cover of Blue Velvet and seen the H&M television advertisement of her crooning the tune with a ton of endless David Lynch-ian symbolism and imagery going on. I’ve even noticed it showing on TV already! Awesomeness. I’m a huge fan of some of David Lynch’s dark, wacky work, so the clip was right up my alley. Lynch? LDR? YES, PLEASE! I’ve noticed a lot of other artists and friends have been huge on the clip. Today, Penguin Prison released a sweet remix of the cover which has the addition of some synthlines and sultry beats. The H&M clip and OG cover below. If you’re at all a Lynch fan or familiar with his work, you’d recognize some of his signature themes in the wonderful ad. Shoot, now I’m fiending for some Lynch… Anyone up for watching some Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Mulholland Dr, etc?

SSPU on Letterman

June 5, 2012

Sweet, you can stream the full set that Silversun Pickups did for Live On Letterman last night (they usually only televise a song or two for the actual broadcast but bands do full almost hour long sets for the audience members). Yummy yum yum, oh how I love them so. Time to shoegaze away!

Girl Walk // All Day

November 30, 2011

girl walk all day

This is interesting. There’s a 71 minute film made to the music of Girl Talk, or a “music video of epic proportions”. In particular, the film will be set to his full album All Day. The film is being released in 12 chapters on the New York blog Gothamist starting today and ending in January. The film was funded via Kickstarter, which is pretty cool. I’ve supported several projects on Kickstarter previously. Guess I missed the memo on this one, would’ve been cool to have been involved in some way since I really appreciate both music and dance. And the weirdest thing of all.. I just realized the girl in this film is the SAME DANG FREAKING GIRL in The Good Wife! Who else watches The Good Wife and recognized her? WHAT THE HECK? That girl is the tutor in The Good Wife, and in the TV series, the tutor does crazy, flamboyant dances in public to create sensationalism and art. WHAT THE HECK? She’s real?! What she does is… REAL?! Does she tutor too? 😉 Holy. Crap. Having one of those moments where things connect, things I like… and it feels so dang awesome. How strange! Now I really wish I realized this was on Kickstarter earlier!

Here’s a blurb from their tumblr:

The idea behind Girl Walk // All Day emerged from our desire to expand the boundaries around the idea of the traditional music video, which usually spans the length of a single track. This album-length piece will feature a talented group of dancers across a range of public and private spaces around New York City, turning the city’s sidewalks and obstacles into part of an evolving improvisational dance routine. 

Watch chapter 1 below underneath the first video, which is the trailer. Check out the tumblr for Girl Walk // All Day here. Go to their Kickstarter site here.
