Alesha Dixon: Breathe Slow

Let's "Breathe Slow" with Alesha for a few minutes. It's a shame about the video, isn't it? It's all sweet and silly (and a dash of tamed "Hung Up" during the dance studio sequences) up until the two minute mark, in which Miss Dixon dons a truly ridiculous headband of chicken feathers and twirly…


Kylie And Coldplay: Lhuna

Oh my GOD. This is sublime, Ms. Minogue! I'm only vaguely familiar with most of Coldplay's material, so I cannot speak for their artistic integrity on this project. The song was originally recorded during the most recent Coldplay album sessions. However, according to Chris Martin, the track was…


Jessica Mauboy: Burn

Riding high off the success of the first single, Jessica Mauboy's "Burn" is now impacting Australian radio. Like the first single, "Burn" is quite modern in terms of production, and equally addictive upon replay. It's a bit more up-tempo, a bit more stomptastic, and the chorus is quite…


Rie Fu: Romantic

Long time, no listen! In fact, I haven't heard anything about Rie Fu for a while now! The bilingual beauty is back with a new single entitled "Romantic," and it's simply lush. In fact, with those echoing dance beats and lonesome vocals, I'd place this release in the style territory of Eri…


Sugababes: No Can Do

In perhaps their greatest video yet, the Sugababes get their high fashion on in a man-tastic celebration of masculine inadequacy. Seriously, the girls look S-T-U-N-N-I-N-G here. Anyone have the director's name yet? Anyway, shove together some glamourous gowns, a bucketful of sexy, shirtless men,…


Jessica Mauboy: Running Back

Two years ago, she lost out for the top spot on the fourth season of Australian Idol. Now, Jessica Mauboy is "Running Back." (Like what I did there? No? Me either...Apologies.) In all honesty, it's a pretty decent track, featuring some state-of-the-art, strictly modern sounds from producer Audius…


Ladyhawke: My Delirium

I'll say it: I don't get the Ladyhawke love. To me, the Ladyhawke surge is akin to that of last year's Rogue Traders wave of fascination, and to a lesser degree, the Dragonette spree (I hesitate to make that connection because I still actively believe in Dragonette.) What I'm hearing is some…


Craig David: Insomnia

And now I present, Reasons To Love Craig David's "Insomnia." · It is Ne-Yo's "Closer," but probably better. · It is sung by Craig David, and who doesn't love a comeback? · The repetitive bits. · The chorus. · The subject matter, which is the act of not sleeping. An act that has not been so…


Bitchy Bitches

So many electro pop debuts for 2009, so little time! Here we have Le Corps Mince de Françoise, an up-and-coming girly trio hailing from the mean streets of Helsinki. The band (which translates to The Skinny Body of Francoise, for the record) is releasing their debut single, "Bitch of the Bitches"…


Björk: Nattura (Single Review)

'Twas a bit unexpected! "Nattura" is Björk's latest featuring Thom Yorke, a brand new release to carry us out of the miserable Volta era. Good riddance! According to Pitchfork, the song "'highlights a grass roots movement in Iceland to reclaim the country’s natural resources and wilderness from…


Alesha Dixon: The Boy Does Nothing

Unsurprisingly, the new Alesha Dixon track is as amazing as it's been made out to be. If not more, really. This ought to come as no surprise. Lest we forget, Mizz Dixon was already to be lauded and revered for a certain shelved release a few months back. Let us pray The Alesha Show drops as…


Boa: Eat You Up

At long last, BoA's American debut track "Eat You Up" has found its way onto the net! As suggested through the preview clips, its a pretty bold, bassy stomper. Benefiting from some nice Bloodyshy & Avant vocal gymnastics, the bridge to this bad boy is absolutely lush, hovering somewhere just…
