Don't they have anything more important to do, like go to prom or start learning to drive or something? No matter. Here comes…


Introduucing...Natalia Kills!

If last year's theme was the circus, this year's is truly the freakshow. Meet Natalia Kills, a new artist preparing for her debut under the hit-making machine better known as Cherry Tree Records (as well as a co-sign under Will.i.Am's label.) Grabbing an intentionally Autotuned vocal cue from…


Introduucing...El Perro Del Mar!

It's my fault for not discovering her sooner...but I'm so glad that I finally have. This is El Perro Del Mar, otherwise known as Sarah Assbring, a Swedish artist making pop happen since 2006. I could say that the music she makes, a combination of drippy, ambient pop, distorted strings and a…


Introduucing...Nicki Minaj!

As many of my most beloved Muusers know, pop music isn't the only sound spinning on my iPod. In my spare time, I happen to be an enthusiast of all things female rap, from Lil' Kim to Khia. As of late, I've grown intrigued by a new talent to the scene--Nicki Minaj. Though she hasn't released…


Introduucing...Monica Rush and Nicholas Gorham!

After watching this video three times in a row now, I decided it was time to post. So, this is a behind-the-scenes/parody video from a new artist named Monica Rush, who's preparing the release of her debut single, "100 doLLa biLL." The song, which is sort of an M.I.A./Ke$ha-lite, Gwen…

Introduucing...Orianthi!

This one's a bit unexpected, but hey...musical diversity, right? Also, I think I love her name. It seems a bit late to be "introducing" Orianthi, the 24-year-old guitarist from Adelaide, Australia. Seeing as she's already shared the stage with Santana, Carrie Underwood, and Steve Vai (not to…


Introduucing...Lolene!

Artist: Lolene Where you from, lady? Bristol, UK. What the mini-biography says: "Coining the term, 'awkward pop,' Lolene describes her sound as 'Joan Collins in Dynasty, Studio 54, white jump-suits, and disco balls.'" What it actually means: She makes modern electro-pop music. Claim to Fame:…


Introduucing...Mikky Ekko!

This is Mikky Ekko. Last week, I received a track in my SoundCloud entitled "Sedated," a crawling, mysterious mixture of moans, claps, finger snaps and a barely-there electro tingle reminisicent of something from Bat For Lashes' Two Suns and a hint of Björk's Medulla. Very sexual, yet minimal and…


Introduucing...Suds And Soda!

There are times when I find a song communicates my emotions in a way conversation never could. The last song that made me feel that way? Khia's "Like Me." Now I'd like you all to try "Style Over Substance," a minimal electro-mockery of all things hip by a group called Suds & Soda. From rat-like…


The Paradiso Girls: Patron Tequila

The Paradiso Girls (L-R): Nicole Scherzinger, Scary Spice, Sarah Harding, Christina Milian, A Blonde I have a confession of sorts. Well, it's not really a confession, but it's about the closest thing I'd ever consider to labeling as a "guilty pleasure."I am utterly, unwaveringly obsessed with the…


Introduucing...Daisy Dares You!

This is Daisy Coburn, otherwise known as Daisy Dares You. Daisy Dares You is 15 years of age. (!!?!) Daisy Dares You creates "alt-pop" music that sounds to be about on par with her contemporaries, including the golden pop sensibility of Little Boots, the sarcastically sweet confections of Kate…
