MuuBits

So sorry about the lack of updates lately. Really I'm not, but it looks better to say that I am. I've just returned back from school, and I've decided that my room needs renovating. My chi just doesn't flow like it used to here. My chakras are all unaligned, and I just can't see out my third eye as…


Introducing...Charlotte Sometimes

I think this could be the beginning of something really lovely. For no reason in particular, I accidentally stumbled upon the MySpace of up-and-coming artist, Charlotte Sometimes while avoiding my studies. With a genre label of "Nu-Jazz/Alternative/Pop" (ooh!), I was naturally quite intrigued.…


Introducing...Carolina Liar

If you happen to watch The Hills, you may have noticed Heidi Montag's fat head. But more importantly, you may have also noticed that the show features some pretty decent music from time to time. Carolina Liar is no exception. The new band's sound is sort of like a more laid back, Californian spin…


Introducing....Ready, Fire, Aim

No, not a typo. The name of the band is Ready, Fire, Aim, and they've come guns blazing. The band's debut album This Changes Nothing won't be released on May 27th, but I got a chance to preview the new group's sound. According to their marketing, their sound is supposed to be a mesh of Nine Inch…


Introducing...Yelle

Yelle was introduced to me as the French response to M.I.A.. Upon hearing the entirety of her debut album, Pop Up, I'm seeing traces of something much more dance-oriented, shedding the raw intensity and hook heaviness that signify M.I.A.'s musical identity. As for the artist in question, Yelle grew…


Introducing...The Little Ones

This is a new discovery I've happened upon from an anonymous source. The Little Ones, as they are so affectionately known, are an L.A. based indie-pop band who have as of right now released only one EP, named Sing Song. The reason they came to my attention is for their song, "Lovers Who Uncover." I…


Introducing...Émilie Simon

If you're anything like me, you're probably wondering what Émilie Simon is up to lately. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be anything new. And so, I guess I'll do some sort of summarization of who she is for those who don't know. Émilie Simon is sort of like the more electronic-focused…


Introducing...Madita

Introducing something you've probably seen before but in many different pieces: Madita, a singer from Germany. To begin, I saw her latest single's video, "Because." As "Strawberry" noted on the PopJustice! forums, she is a blend of Feist on the verses and Rachel Stevens on the chorus of the song.…


A Little Bit Electric

Now introducing the debut album, Pain Disappears, from electronic musicians Mlle Caro & Franck Garcia. Mlle is the French abbreviation for the word "mademoiselle." I forget the exact translation of that word, but roughly it means "made in moiselle." The collaboration produces unquestionably…
