There’s too many updates today!
Damnit, it’s Friday…cool your jets, music industry!
Ever wondered what happened when MPHO wandered onto the set of Girls Aloud‘s “The Loving Kind” and started playing in Nicola’s box? I imagine the above is sort of what would have happened.
Oh yes: Utterly promising, one to watch for ’09, etc. etc.
While on the subject of MPHO, please consider this sage morsel of Tweet introspection from Mr. Darren Hayes:
“Is it just me or does the name of the artist MPHO sound like an acronym for something Britney said recently about a wardrobe malfunction?”
Just try and look at her name without filling in the words…I defy you.
And here we have the official video for “When Love Takes Over,” the song I’ve declared to be the official Summer ’09 Anthem since the end of March.
As you can see, the video (much like the song) delivers, using lots of bright colors and gorgeous, sun-shining visuals to create that essential Ibiza-esque sensation. Not that this clip had to be so involved–in fact, it was a pleasant surprise to see that there was a video to begin with!
My only criticism would be not enough screen time for that ridiculously fierce dress on K. Rowland.
Thanks to Muuser RJ for alerting me pronto!
This is a track that first popped up on my radar (on my ray-duh) back last year, but only now is it finally seeing what we in the industry like to refer to as a ‘proper release.’
Dan Black‘s “Symphonies” is a blend of the now instantly recognizable drum beat from RiRi‘s “Umbrella” and a cover of sorts of Notorious B.I.G.‘s “Hypnotize.”
The result is something altogether pleasing–catchy, melodic, and slightly angelic all in the same go around.
Oh, and the video is superb, traveling the highs and lows of contemporary film advertisements and title scenes. Shame Amanda Lepore sort of just did this a month ago with a smaller budget and a lot more lipstick.
Dan Black’s album, ((Un)), will be released on July 13.
OH MY FLIPPING BANANA SNAUSAGES, IT’S THE NEW FRANKMUSIK VIDEO!!!
Things of note:
+ Holly Valance‘s acting skills while strolling along town. WHERE IS HER OSCAR.
+ Holly Valance’s karate skills while being mugged. Clearly, filming Dead or Alive has had a lasting effect on her general composure in life.
+ The lady-getting-mugged-and-paintballed-in-the-doorway bit sort of frightens me and leaves me completely unresolved.
+ Mr. Frank looks ridiculously attractive in the last ten seconds, leading to…
+ HOW ‘BOUT THAT KISS, EH?!
And that was “Confusion Girl,” ladies and gentlemen.
Here now is the video for Moby‘s “first self-produced” single from his upcoming album Wait For Me, “Pale Horses.”
Spoiler Alert: If the song doesn’t make you want to kill yourself, the video surely will.
