Tiga: Shoes

I really do love this boy. "Shoes," the next single off of Tiga's upcoming album Ciao! is by far the greatest song written about and entitled "Shoes" since Kelly's 2007 single, "Shoes." The song (which apparently features Soulwax and Gonzales if the Wikipedia is to be trusted) is indeed quite…


Finding Anthonio

It has arrived--the full version of Annie's upcoming single, "Anthonio," off of her cruelly titled, forever delayed sophomore album, Don't Stop. It is, of course, brilliant. AND YES, THERE'S A MASSIVE KEY CHANGE AT THE END. And, if we are to believe her label, this is the alleged round-up of…


Utada: This Is The One (Album Review)

It's been a long time coming... Enjoy! ----- In case you weren’t aware, Utada is a single lady again. Yet ever since the dissolution of her marriage with acclaimed Japanese director Kazuaki Kiriya in 2007, the singer has not made even a single peep regarding the fact in any of her recent Japanese…


Britney Does Boston: The Review

It is finally complete. Like my lil' drawing? Warning: Picture and praise heavy. ENTER THE CIRCUS. As the video screens start to pull upward along with the black curtains, the silhouettes of a half dozen circus performers slowly fill out across the smoke-filled stage. From above, the outline of a…


Kelly Clarkson: All I Ever Wanted (Album Review)

Forgive me: It's taken a while to roll this one out, and for absolutely no particular reason at all (aside from my ambiguous stance on the entire album). Seeing as the release date is in just two days, I took to locking myself in a small room to immerse myself within the sights and sounds of Kelly…


Antigone: Promiscuity

Rarely does a press release catch my eye, but the latest package from Antigone's headquarters has prompted a second listening: Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux ... L' Antigone? Just when you thought it was impossible for another female electro artist to emerge triumphant, in marches Antigone with…


Empire Of The Sun: Walking On A Dream

Durr...Nearly forgot. Just because I wrote it for my final Queerty round, doesn't mean it doesn't exist as a proper review in its own right! ----- Australia is good for only two things: Kangaroos and Dannii Minogue. However, it seems the country can now add another element to the list: Glam-rock…


Nadia Ali: Love Story

If you're unaware, I'm currently in the running to be Queerty's official music reviewer...which I will remind you of in large letters RIGHT NOW. The contest--which is doing nothing to help aid in a lifelong fight against a laundry list of neuroses and vaguely narcissistic tendencies--is not over…


Najoua Belyzel: Au Feminin

STOP WHATEVER YOU'RE DOING--Najoua Belyzel has a new single out. What'd you say? You don't know who Najoua Belyzel is? I feel for you. Najoua Belyzel is a gorgeous French-pop chanteuse--still somewhat new on the music scene--known for her minimally offensive, religious-themed dance-pop, faithful…


Lily Allen: It's Not Me, It's You

After nearly four years, Lily Allen has finally begun to make headlines for all the right reasons again. Next week will see the release of the original MySpace Starlet's sophomore attempt, It's Not Me, It's You, featuring the thoughts and fears of a 22-year-old poised at the precipice of adulthood.…


Ayumi Hamasaki: RULE

It's the New Year...Must be time for another Ayumi Hamasaki release! "RULE" is Hamasaki's forty-fifth (sweet Jesus) single, planned as the international theme song for upcoming film, Dragonball Evolution. With this new release, we find our Ayu returning once more to her classic rock roots,…


Introducing...VEGA!

Perhaps this will be the year of electro-jitter boys. Vincent Frank, I'm staring in your direction. VEGA, the former frontman of Ghosthustler, is now preparing to pave his own path. Sometime this spring, Vega is set to debut the All Too Vivid EP on Vogue College Records, a collection of five…
