Introduucing...Alex Gardner!

I KNOW. I KNOW. SO LATE ON THIS. Okay, so I've been really bad about properly introduucing Alex Gardner, the sensational (and gorgeous) 18-year-old who's career is being helmed by Xenomania.

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…

Rejoice, friends: you can judge this album by its cover.

Girls Aloud: A Taste Of Dynamite

Check out the thirty second taste of Girls Aloud's latest b-side from "Untouchable": "It's Your Dynamite." Getting a bit too noisy, don't you think? I'm starting to worry that the Aloud have been drudging around in Cascada's backyard for some time now, especially considering the Radio Edit of…

More Sugary Sweetness

She's back!!! After keeping us watering at the mouth for about four years, Annie's back with her new single, "Girlfriend" produced by Brian Higgins and Xenomania. The best thing is, there's no "HEY HEY, YOU YOU" at the beginning of the track like other "Girlfriend" songs you may know. Just…
