And…it’s good!

Check out “Under Cover of Darkness”…from their new album out March 22nd.


Check out the latest video from The Asteroids Galaxy Tour, “The Golden Age”, as the band goes sexy Bond on us and saturate the video with green and bottles of Heineken.

Techno track “Satisfaction” gets a garage rock band makeover by WhoMadeWho.

Just can’t stop listening to The Naked And Famous, a sexier sounding Silversun Pickups hailing from New Zealand.  TNAF will be in NYC on May 4th, Terminal 5.  Count me in.




British pop singer, Sunday Girl, is the total package:  hot with a voice (marketable).  She’s making more noise in the UK, thanks to her covers of Ke$ha’s “Tik Tok” and MGMT’s “Time to Pretend”, but with Diplo signed on as her producer, her original songs are Brit-pop good.  Her music videos are just as hot, including the cover song of Laura Branigan’s “Self Control.”  If the music thing doesn’t work, Sunday Girl (real name: Jade Williams) could always do magazine covers.  Check out some of the goods below.


I was feeling tired when I came back home

I didn’t know the number on the telephone

Then I heard the sweetest voices

Calling through the dry ether radio

Ether radio, ether radio

WHO: Michigan band Lightning Love

COMPARISONS: A tamed down Metric meets Eisley

WORTHY: Pretty simple lyrics matched with simple production – and catchy.

MORE: The vocalist and drummer happen to be brother and sister – just like Eisley.


I am a man, man, man, man
Up, up in the air
And I run around, round, round, round this down town and act like I don’t care.
So when you see me flying by the planet’s moon,
You don’t need to explain if everything’s changed
Just know I’m just like you.

The Pretty Reckless (yep, the band fronted by Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen) is headed to the states to roll out their first US tour after covering every big city across the pond.  Their album is currently still an import, but I assume this tour is a sign that Universal Music will finally/soon start marketing the band and eventually release the album in the states.

No qualms admitting that their songs are pretty damn good and Momsen carries one sick voice (and she is credited as a writer on every album track).

Check out some of their acoustic performances.  Tour schedule here – includes a stop in NYC: March 2nd, Santo’s Party House.  Yep, I’ll be at the show.


Two Door Cinema Club JUST released a new video for their track What You Want” – check it out and make sure to head to their Facebook page to get a free MP3 download of the remixed track.  Pump it up, Char!
