A Star is Born: MuuMuse Interview with Starsmith!

She just couldn’t believe that what we’d ended up completely doing in my bedroom...was going to become what people would say would be the sound of the following year. If you've even been vaguely paying attention to the state of pop music in the U.K. at the moment, chances are you've heard of…


Guest Muuse: Sam Lansky's "Fame Fatale: The Rise of Sky Ferreira"

So, this is something new and interesting. The night before my interview with Sky Ferreira, I received a vaguely mysterious e-mail from MuuMuse reader Sam Lansky with an attachment entitled "Fame Fatale." The e-mail suggested that the attached may assist me in preparing for my interview. As soon…


Sky Ferreira: One (Single Review)

First we had "17"--now there's simply "One." "One" is Sky Ferreira's debut single on Parlophone Records. The song sounds a bit like if Marina & The Diamonds' "I Am Not A Robot" went out for a few drinks with Little Boots' "Stuck On Repeat," except the date took place in an underwater bar and…


Introduucing...Joseph Birdsong!

I first heard of Joseph Birdsong about a year or so ago after happening upon his YouTube video about bruised fruit. I found Birdsong to be both cute and quirky. He seemed to 'get' my sense of humor and/or similar neuroses, and so I began following him on and off throughout the past few months…


Ellie Goulding: Lights (Album Review)

Lights is the debut album released on March 1 by Ellie Goulding, the 23-year-old British electro-pop chanteuse recently awarded with (or damned with, depending on your interpretation) the title of BBC's Sound of 2010 Artist. The distinction stems from a list compiled at the start of each year by…

Interview with...Little Boots!

Photo Credit: Daniel Sannwald I got really wasted, talked to loads of nonsense people, stumbled around, danced like an idiot and went home—a normal night out, really. Last Thursday, I had the chance to speak with Little Boots, one of the most talked about electro-pop chanteuses on the dance…


February 22: Another Day, Another Iamamiwhoami

Here we go--it's a new Iamamiwhoami video tucked away in my inbox this morning. The title, "15.6.6.9.3.9.14.1.18.21.13.56155" translates to "O.F.F.I.C.I.N.A.R.U.M.V." The last number is a little fuzzy though...you could add that up in a bunch of different ways. With a quick Google, "officinarum"…


Every Little Remix: The Little Boots Widget

Did you hear? MuuMuse is going to be speaking with Little Boots on Friday! If you've got a burning question you'd love for me to ask her during our chat, leave it in the comments section or tweet it to me--I'd be more than happy to do so! In the meantime, please enjoy this fantastic new widget…


Does Iamamiwhoami Have Something Hiding Up Her Boots?

Space Girl: Gabriella Cilmi is "On A Mission"

Move over, Little Boots--there's a new space-age disco diva in town. Gabriella Cilmi, the 18-year old Aussie songstress responsible for last year's "Sweet About Me" has returned to Earth. Well, sort of. "On A Mission" is a hectic, intergalactic neo-disco rave, where Cilmi's raspy vocals (a kind…
