Ra Ra Riot | Boy

No Comments 24 | August | 2010

“Boy” has been “handpicked” as the debut single from The Orchard, Ra Ra Riot’s sophomore album, and the video recently crash-landed on the internet courtesy of label Barsuk Records.  A mere sixteen-count in and there’s no question why it is “the chosen one.”  The bubbling bass line immediately demands reciprocal head nodding.  If you’re not sure what this looks like, just watch the bassist, yo!

For a country of criminals, the Aussies sure know how to make a funny.  In this 90-second spot Honda: Down Under is marketing one of its subcompact models, the Jazz, to a new market sector:  Hipsters.  And why not, jazz is hip, right.  Maybe so, but how hip are very small cars manufactured by very large corporations?

Yeasayer | Madder Red

Nobody has ever accused Yeasayer of being too normal.  With the release of the video for “Madder Red” they’ve assured themselves of at least another year of anti-mainstream street cred.  Equal parts weird and disgusting, the video stars “cute-as-a-button” Kristen Bell fawning over her beloved, but ailing pet, which resembles a goiter with a mangled baby leg projecting from it.

Mark Ronson & The Business Intl | Bang Bang Bang

No Comments 10 | August | 2010

From the opening countdown of “Un, deux, twois,” this dance track grabs your attention and slaps you with its white glove.  The only problem with this duel is that YOU are on the short end of three “bangs” that will leave you dead like disco.  And as if Mark Ronson and his infectious beats + production aren’t enough to worry about, it turns out his “Business Intl” includes the likes of Q-Tip.  One, Two, Oh My God!

Gothenburg, Sweden’s The Tough Alliance (TTA) generated some of the best pop music of the 2000’s and now Eric Berglund, one half of the masterfully creative duo, has rolled out a solo effort that is worth some bat swinging* of its own.  Although the eight-song, White Magic, logs a sub 30-minute runtime, it’s packed with same poptacular delights that shone on TTA’s A New Chance (2007).
