For Lack of a Better Name is Deadmau5‘s second studio album, a follow-up to his 2008 award-winning success, Random Album Title.
While Mr. Mouse, a Canadian house DJ, might be best known ’round these parts as one half of the collaboration behind Kaskade‘s genius “Move For Me,” he’s also an accomplished solo artist in his own right, spawning several Juno and Beatport Award wins, as well as a Grammy nomination for his remix of Morgan Page‘s “The Longest Road” in 2009.
“Ghosts ‘N Stuff,” the first single (and very first video for Deadmau5!), provides all the right “Stuff” to get into the Halloween swing of things: Mix some Hi-NRG organ synths, a pumping bass and a ~spooky~ vocal delivery thanks to Rob Swire, and you’ve got yourself a hit–not to mention the makings of a ridiculous music video.
Ever want to know what a night out on the town in the afterlife looks like? Check it out above–I think you’ll find a deeper appreciation ifor what a day in the life of Lindsay Lohan would be like after viewing.
The album is streaming in full at Deadmau5′s MySpace.
Whenever a band changes up its style, the decision is usually met with jeers, hisses, lit torches, and angry pitchforks (in both the physical and digital sense).
The Noisettes are an entirely different entity. With the release of Wild Young Hearts on September 21, their second major LP, the band demonstates that experimenting with a new flavor doesn’t have to be the gateway to ruin–in fact, it can lead to the most pleasant of surprises.
Gone without a trace are the crashing drums and carnal, skittish yelps of What’s The Time, Mr. Wolf?. In their stead, catchy melodies, soulful crooning, and a solid retro-tuned-modern sound that walks the line somewhere between Doo-wop, ’60′s soul, and classic ’50′s rock ‘n’ roll. The result? A solid and cohesive collection of tunes as instant and familiar as an American Bandstand “Best Of” collection.
While the whole album is worthy of mention, favorites include “Don’t Upset the Rhythm,” “Never Forget You,” “Beat of My Heart,” and the album closer, “Cheap Kicks,” all of which prove just about impossible not to start singing along with immediately.
Offering one of the freshest and most accessible releases of 2009, the Noisettes have proven themselves now twice in a row as one of the finest breakthrough acts of the decade. Though I’d never gotten around to properly reviewing the album when it initially came out, Wild Young Hearts is one of the summer’s best, and a strong contender for one of the year’s top releases.
To celebrate the release of Wild Young Hearts, MuuMuse is giving away ONE VINYL COPY of the new album! Simply send a blank e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org to enter. Contest ends on October 15 at noon, when a winner will be chosen and contacted at random.
To enter to win a SPECIAL EDITION USB STICK of David Guetta’s new album, One Love, send an e-mail to email@example.com with the name of your favorite track from the album.
A winner will be selected at random and contacted in one week (10/9) at noon. (US readers only, please–sorry!)
What…you didn’t think I’d FORGET, did you?!
Today marks a historic release: Celebration, a 34-track collection (and video compendium) of some of Madonna‘s greatest songs written during the 29 years spent under her longtime label, Warner Bros. Records. Though no 2-disc collection would ever properly befit an artist as prolific, iconic, and influential as Madonna, Celebration is about as near perfect as we could have possibly hoped.
In celebration of Celebration (tee-hee!), I’m proud to announce that MuuMuse will be giving away 3 MADONNA T-SHIRTS to support this release.
To enter to win one of these three (see pictures here, here, and here) shirts AT RANDOM (sorry, can’t call dibs one!), send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “CELEBRATION” telling me what your favorite Madonna song of all time is and why. (Don’t worry–if you can’t choose just one, tell me which two or three are!)
US ENTRANTS ONLY PLEASE. (Sorry!)
Contest ends in just ONE week (10/6) at noon, so hurry now while there’s still time! The three winners will be selected and notified on that day.
WHAT YOU WAITING FOR? Come join the party–it’s a Celebration!
