The new Little Boots song is properly the most amazing dance song we've heard all year
...and we've been meaning to talk about it for a while, but we've been really, really, really busy and on top of that having some sort of Existential Pop Crisis about What It All Means and Why Are We Here and We Can't Tell Any Of The Pussycat Dolls Apart, etc, etc, etc ETFUCKINGCETERA.
Maybe we'll be back. Maybe we won't. We haven't decided.
Yes, "datamoshing"--the newfangled video treatment in which images are manipulated to purposefully look like you're streaming video is totally fucked in the ass. Charming! The first time we saw OG datamoshing was in the absolutely fantastic video for "Are You the One?" by the Presets, and we thought it was kind of confusing but immensely cool. Obvi, the video for "Evident Utensil" by Disconap Best Album of 2008 Laureates Chairlift could have been recorded in five minutes on a FlipCam and we still would have been all "OMG AMAZING", but this whole datamoshing (so fucked up that we're already trying to think of a catchier way to say the word "datamoshing") thing suits their style well" beautiful yet weird and slightly flawed.
God we love Chairlift. And the d-mosh (goddamnit).
Once Again, Sébastien Tellier Demonstrates His Bottomless Sense of Humility
At first we thought hirsute French crooner Sébastien Tellier was a little bit naft, but luckily we've realized that we're totally wrong and that he is the future of music (he's not the future of music, but Sexuality is am amazing record, etc). But we will say, we've can't recall anyone ever releasing TRAILER for their new video (in this case, the amazing intergalactic slow-jam "Roche"). Not only that, but it would seem that the video heavily features Sébastien riding a horse up a giant woman's bottom.
This is the teaser.
Depending on the quality of the actual video, we may or may not post it at a later date. STAY TUNED, WATCH THIS SPACE ETC
We Just May Be Totally Obsessed With The Golden Filter
Yes, things have been slow around here, but we're gradually getting it together, between trying to find bands we're into and viewings of BBC America's How Clean Is Your House?. We're going to do a massive redesign, but for now here's "Hide Me" by The Golden Filter.
It is good.
That is all.
Also we love the bit where they jump on the couch and it flips over.
The Katy Perry Remix To End All Katy Perry Remixes
We randomly came across this remix of "Hot N Cold" by someone named Daddy Nino (or Niño, perhaps? It's hard to tell WHEN PEOPLE USE ALL CAPS ALL THE TIME), while looking for new and inventive ways of making Katy Perry listenable. Holy mother of Christ, this remix is fucking amazing. We basically sat in front of the computer making more and more confused faces until it ended and we started it again. If Katy Perry sounded like this all the time she would have easily been our breakout artist for 2008*. Instead, it takes some kid making YouTube remixes with Garageband to make one of the highest selling new female artists around not make us want to take a chainsaw to our nether regions. Who ever said the world made sense (we believe it may have been Confucius, but that is neither here nor there, really).
Amaxing (typo, keeping it).
*While being amazing, "Hot N Cold (Daddy Nino remix)" does not make up for "I Kissed a Girl".
