Head over to t.A.T.u.‘s MySpace NOW to listen to their new single “220,” streaming in full! The second single off of their upcoming third album is their most electro-driven song to date, with much more rocking electro crunches and an awesomely haunting vocal performance, as per usual! The Russo duo can simply do no wrong in my eyes.
Here’s information on the release, directly from their official site:
The song â€œ220â€ was recorded at Bonum Studio (Moscow) and at Sarm West Studios (London).
The music and the lyrics of the song were written by Valery Polienko.
Fresh extravagant video â€œ220â€ will premiere in May. The video has already been shot and now is in post-production. It will probably be the most colorful of all t.A.T.u. videos.
The song â€œ220â€ will be included in the two upcoming releases of the band â€“ hyperion-plate â€œBeliy Plaschikâ€ (released in May 2008, SOYUZ) and the Russian version of the third studio album â€œUpravleniye Otbrosamiâ€ (planned release â€“ June 2008, SOYUZ)
So excited…crank it out girls!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Girls Aloud is the best five piece girl band out of the UK since the dawn of the new millenium, hands down. Spice will, of course, always be number one in my heart, but I will be damned if the Girls aren’t a bat of a false eyelash away from claiming the title of the fiercest fiver. They’re going on tour this summer which will inevitably crush my spirits, seeing as I live miles away (they always love me more that way), but I know I’ll get to see it via scream filled, shaky YouTube clips in the very near future.
Opening for the group must obviously be an impossible task, though bringing in the Rogue Traders last year was a wise choice. This time around, the Girls Aloud cronies decided to go with The Saturdays, a brand new five-piece girl group that features two former members of S Club 8–I’ll let you marinate on that tidbit. PopJustice introduced them a while ago to remind everyone that their single would drop in May. If you sniff around long enough, you’ll find it in the download sections of your music forums.
The song, called “If This Is Love,” is certainly better than decent, and includes a souped up 80′s sample, woman-filled singing, and rather big choruses–though it isn’t entirely fulfilling. In other words, the perfect opener to the grand show. I would have liked to post a picture of their pretty faces, but they don’t seem to exist on the Internet…which is slightly unsettling. Anyway, go find their single and give it a listen. You’ll be reminded of how much you really love their label sisters, the Aloud, in the first place.
…Oh Nadine, why don’t you call me?
Like most people, when I think of haute couture, I think luscious lady lumps. Which is why it made sense that the tickity tack tranny from Transylvania herself, Fergie Ferg, was drafted to produce the theme song for the upcoming Sex and the City movie called “Labels or Love.” Keep in mind, Ms. Ferguson’s vocal techniques are damn delicious (he’s my witness), and I don’t care who knows it.
However this time, all the Fergielicious attitude in the world isn’t going to save this sinking stiletto. Like the singer, the song is a straight up hot mess of nonsense lyrics and poor execution. It plays like one merciless, unending verse, stuffed on top of a horridly outdated synth-tastic reinterpretation of the Sex and the City theme song.
Now I do have to give credit where it’s due and applaud Fergie, because she did manage to take both my love of high fashion and the Sex and the City series and craft them into the most horrifyingly repulsive of fashion related songs of all time. Now that’s high fashion.
Pioneers of semi-radio friendly industrial music, Nine Inch Nails have been quite busy since their contract with major label Interscope Records expired. Within the year, Trent Reznor and Co. have released a two disc Ambient, Electronic, Rock, Industrial CD entitled Ghosts I-IV, planned a United States tour, scheduled an appointment with Lollapalooza, reorganized their fan club to be free of cost, and shocked their fans less than 24 hours ago with the radio release of their new track, “Discipline,” which is currently available for a free download on the band’s official website. Along with the free download, you can head on over to the band’s official remix website, download the multi-track of the song (for free, of course) and create your very own mix.
Casual fans of rock music know Nine Inch Nails’ for their dark, depressing, and what some would argue to be “weird” music. However, “Discipline,” which sounds like a mix between the band’s With_Teeth and Year Zero albums, contains an infectious percussion which could easily be plugged into a dance beat, synths and distorted guitar sounds out the ass, and perhaps Reznor‘s most radio friendly vocals and lyrics to date. For the rock and pop world, this is perfection. The only downfall of this song is that Janet Jackson (who released her album Discipline earlier this year) is absolutely no where to be heard on this track. Which is a surprise, considering how pop it is.
The song’s album artwork features five square boxes with a circle around the third box. Speculation assumes that a five song EP will be released soon, and that “Discipline” will be the third track. To help this theory, when you click the properties of this song and read the comments section, it reads “Go to nin.com May 5th.” Trust me, readers, once you download this song, you will be just as a rabid fan as the rest of us are, and you’ll be refreshing the band’s website on May 5th over and over again waiting as impatiently as you can for NIN’s next surprise.
This is Christian George. He wears many hats (dancer, choreographer, actor). Clothing? Not as much of a fan. I’ll allow for it. The man’s worked with Britney and Justin as a dancer, and Kanye as a stylist, and he seems to have a career path paved just about everywhere in entertainment. The next step? Conquering the dancefloor. Yep, time to go pop. I recently got a hold of his first single, “Strangers.” The introduction was a little iffy, but once the song kicked in, I got the picture. The song is a drippy up-tempo full of intergalactic beats and a nice, seductive vocal offering. It’s fulfilling, and perfect for the summer heat rolling around the corner. And hey, sometimes we could all use a mindless sex romp now and then. Am I right or am I right?
As for a MuuMuse Excluusive, here’s Christian’s new single, “Strangers” streaming in full.
