Open Aloud

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Girls Aloud is the best five piece girl band out of the UK since the dawn of the new millenium, hands down. Spice will, of course, always be number one in my heart, but I will be damned if the Girls aren't a bat of a false eyelash away from claiming the…


Label Whore

Like most people, when I think of haute couture, I think luscious lady lumps. Which is why it made sense that Fergie Ferg, was drafted to produce the theme song for the upcoming Sex and the City movie called "Labels or Love." Keep in mind, Ms. Ferguson's vocal techniques are damn delicious (he's my…


A Different Kind of Discipline

Pioneers of semi-radio friendly industrial music, Nine Inch Nails have been quite busy since their contract with major label Interscope Records expired. Within the year, Trent Reznor and Co. have released a two disc Ambient, Electronic, Rock, Industrial CD entitled Ghosts I-IV, planned a United…


Hard Truth About Hard Candy

Read on for my incredibly long, incredibly serious review of Madonna's 11th studio album, Hard Candy! Madonna truly does want to devour the world. In 2005, Confessions On A Dance Floor further cemented her status as an icon within discotheques around the world, as well as a seat upon the throne as…


Make Love Like Strangers

Now that I have your attention. This is Christian George. He wears many hats (dancer, choreographer, actor). Clothing? Not as much of a fan. I'll allow for it. The man's worked with Britney and Justin as a dancer, and Kanye as a stylist, and he seems to have a career path paved just about…


Perfume Game

The GAME is On

Both of their album covers are mind blowing eyegasms and you can almost see the pixie dust floating through the air song after song. This is the fiercest of the fierce, the best of the best, and at times, corniest of the corny. We're talking about Perfume's sophomore release, Game. And trust me,…


Weapon Of Massive Consumption

The O.G. of bitchy, internet UK celebrities, Lily Allen herself has posted double demos on her MySpace page today. After just one day, she's already got around 30,000 listens for each song. The first, "I Don't Know," is a sarcastic take on the lifestyles of the rich and plastic. Shame, I thought…


On His Way

In case some of you Muusers might have noticed, the download links accompanying the latest reviews have been removed. It's not an accident. I've decided that downloading will no longer be a feature of MuuMuse. And by that, I mean MuuMuse is back to where it should be--barely legal and ready to…


See All I See

What kind of fuckery is this? It's the new promotional video for Kylie Minogue's "All I See," the rapidly flopping single released in North America. I'm not sure why this is happening--it's like some sick game that no one is truly a part of. So let's see: + She's talking to a somewhat fit man's…


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…


I'm Not Gonna Write You A L.O.V.E. Song

This is a review of Ashlee Simpson's latest album, Bittersweet World. I present to you, the reader, a choice: You can continue on reading, or you can indignantly scowl and scroll away. I know the temptation to leave is burning deep into your fingertips. Trust me, I don't blame you, but I do beg…


Don't Tell 'Em What You Know About Me...

Alas, my latest Swedish delight to stumble upon! Her name is Britta Persson, a refreshing indie-pop treat. Quite airy like Lykke Li and complete with a country twang in the vein of Nina Persson (of The Cardigans...related?) She released her second album, Hollywood Kill Me, back in January in the…
