Janet Jackson: Throb

I've done a whole lot of "new" lately...Let's take it back. Last night, I put in Miss Jackson's Janet. album, poured myself a tall glass of red wine, and got down with myself while cleaning up the apartment. Though I don't remember much past the first few moments of mopping, I do know that my home…


Introducing...Two Door Cinema Club!

Here we have Alex, Kev, and Sam, the three young lads that comprise the Two Door Cinema Club. The boys enjoy banging about and making music together. "Something Good Can Work," their debut single in the UK, is the result of such things. They look a bit like the Jonas Brothers, if the Jonas…


Frankmusik: Completing Complete Me

First it was "Better Off As Two." Then came the briefly confused murmur of "Confusion Girl." Now, it's finally confirmed. "Complete Me" will be the first single from Mr. Vincent Frank's upcoming debut album. Word on the street is that it's an off-shoot from the Stuart Price sessions, though I can't…


Fever Ray's New Album...

Makes me think: "This is what it must have been like when people heard Björk's Debut for the first time." More on this later. Fever Ray's self-titled album is available now at Amazon, and will be released in physical format on March 18th in Sweden, March 23rd in the rest of the world. DL: Fever…


Donna Summer: Fame (The Game)

On Saturday, I was sewing my own cheeseburger. Why? Because that's the sort of thing you'd actually find me doing on a Saturday night. It was, as they say in Britain, great fun. But aside from that, I also found myself perusing this week's Billboard Magazine with the intention of reading the Lily…


MuuMuse Most Anticipated: 2009 Edition

Come every January, the promise and excitement of new music releases for the new year lies tantalizingly close upon the horizon. Though dozens of fabulous albums will be released this year, I thought I’d compile a list of some of my most heart-pumping, bar-raising anticipated releases for 2009.…


I'm Not The Charting Kind

Taking into account the current sales, the chances of Girls Aloud hitting the Top Ten with "The Loving Kind" are now dangerously slim, with the single resting at a shaky #10 in the midweeks. A failure to hit the Top Ten would end the Aloud's record-breaking single run at the top of the charts,…


Kelly Clarkson: My Life Would Suck Without You

WOW. You're now listening to Kelly Clarkson's rapid rise back into the spotlight. It really is "Since U Been Gone" sans angst...plus poppers for good measure! Massive chorus for the Clarkson-meister. Sure it's the same ol', same ol' Max Martin/Dr. Luke production, but I'm still not bothered by the…


Noisy Rhythms

Thanks to PopJustice for keeping an eye out on things, here we have The Noisettes 'selling out.' Hang on to your hats and glasses everyone, 'cause this here's gonna be a uprising of Ting Tings proportions. Yeehaw! Band member Jamie laid down the skinny on "Don't Upset The Rhythm" on the band's…


Well, We've Got The Williams' Blood...

All this waiting and we get...A live compilation video? Whatever happened to Chris Cunningham? Wasn't he in charge of the direction? Perhaps he grew weary after suffering the wrath of a Jones scorned. I 'spose I can't complain too much...She doesn't come around these parts too often. Besides, it's…


A Campy Affair

With all the excitement (brouhaha) over the newest spring releases (including rumor of the Sticky & Sweet Tour Double DVD ready in time for March?) I've nearly forgotten to check back on some of the albums that have been in the works...Pardon me for my forgetfulness! Nina Persson is releasing…


Morrissey: Loving The French

Here we have ourselves a massive release, thanks to 8/1: The first single from legendary Smiths lead vocalist Morrissey's upcoming album. The track is called "I'm Throwing My Arms Around Paris." While chipper in melody, the track maintains that signature, melancholic quality of the Morrissey……
