Introducing...Armand Mirpour!

This is Armand Mirpour. He is of the Swedish variety, yet neither red nor a fish. I find him interesting. He writes in that semi-pompous, semi-worldly sort of indie-folk way that indie-folk folks like to employ within their MySpace pages. He wears silly clothing in some occasions, and looks rather…


Introducing...Donawhale

I haven't written about Donawhale on MuuMuse, but it's worth noting that this band is indeed amazing. Sadly however, I have not managed to find any information on the band because they are (a) from Korea and (b) relatively underground. For that reason, I'm going to compose what I believe to be some…


Introducing...Dan Black!

Dan Black is an up-and-coming sort of artiste. He has a sexy kind of voice, and consequently, a sexy kind of face. This is him: Sassy. His first single is called "HYPNTZ". If you'll notice, there are no vowels in this title, suggesting that the song should be pronounced "hip-nits." Part RiRi's…


Introducing...Sonny J

Finally, some real pop innovation! With his debut album Disastro premiering next week on the 16th, Sonny J seems to be sitting on a gold mine of surprising delights. Check out the video for his latest single, "Handsfree (If You Hold My Hand)" above. It's an absolute must see--totally worth your…


Introducing...Doe Deere!

Much to my deepest chagrin, I neglected to look into the musical repetoire of the fanciful Doe Deere until I happened upon ElectroQueer's energetic interview with the tiny disco dancer today. She's obsessed with recreating the '80's which, admittedly, is nothing new--but she's certainly taking it…


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…
