Audio Bullys are set to release their new album Higher Than The Eiffel in the US on January 18th via The End Records. The release follows a four year gap since the pair's second album, Generation, and sees Simon Franks and Tom Dinsdale recapture the energy and dance floor instincts that made Audio Bullys one of the most successful UK dance acts of the previous decade.

The first single from Higher Than The Eiffel is "Only Man." The enticing video for "Only Man" is a recent winner of the 2010 UK Music Video Awards for "Best Visual Effects" beating out the likes of Kanye West and Lily Allen.

Mixing their love of electro hip hop and ska with an expansive cast list of musical collaborators, switching across dance's myriad genres and throwing away the rule book has led Audio Bullys to make their finest record to date. Higher Than The Eiffel is a worthy successor to breakthrough debut Ego War and follow up Generation, which spawned the massive worldwide hit, "Shot You Down."

Recorded in a six month burst through 2009 and made with the express intent of creating an album for their mates rather than a record company, to be "respected by the people that you want to respect you" as Si puts it, the fourteen tracks on Higher Than The Eiffel range from the full on club stomp of lead single, "Only Man" to the psychedelic come down of "Daisy Chains," the Chic guitar disco of "Dynamite" and the ska stylings of "The Future Belongs To Us." The bangers are still here but this is a complete album, a journey through various dance music, all held together by Si's conversational lyrics and the little production twists and turns that are the hallmark of Audio Bullys sound.

Recorded and produced by the band with help from a cast of friends including Suggs and Mike Barson of Madness, Charlie Creed Miles, Jesse Keegan, Tina Jacobs Lym and Si's brother Jimmy, Higher Than The Eiffel will see a much anticipated U.S. release on January 18th via The End Records.

Between releasing their debut album Revelation this summer and spending the last eight months on the road with Carrie Underwood, Sons of Sylvia found time to film a new music video for the song "I'll Know You," the band's second single. Check out the

premiere on Yahoo! Music and on the band's website.
Revelation also features the hit track "Love Left to Lose" and is available in stores and on iTunes. The band continues their run on Carrie's Play On tour until the end of the year - visit SonsofSylvia.com for the remaining tour dates and details.


Australian singer/songwriter Orianthi has released a new music video for the song "Courage," from her recent release Believe (II). "Courage is one of my favorite songs to sing live... It's very spiritual and it takes you to a colorful place," she says of the track, which showcases the rocker's softer side and features friend Lacey of the band Flyleaf. 的 had a great time making the video with Lacey. I love the setting and the colors that were used in this clip - very earthy and exactly the way I envisioned the video for this tune to be."



Larry Dvoskin, multiple Grammy nominated musician and mega-producer, is breaking out from behind the mixing board and into the spotlight with the debut of his own project, the critically acclaimed, psychedelic “Life Is Strange”. The project is described by Dvoskin as a “musical tapestry of colored threads. Each song is meant to have a different resonance,” Dvoskin explained. “From innocence to knowing, from the physical to the quest for the eternal, let "Life Is Strange" carry you on a magic carpet through the doorways of time and your own imagination, into the greater beyond.”

'Everyone's A Hooker" which falls nothing short of unique and creatively driven, speaks on the reality that each individual has something different to offer, a “pure part of their soul,” which, in turn, is used to get them through their day to day life. “Be it kicking a football, performing open-heart surgery, singing, or having a great pair of tits or ass-we each have something unique that someone else wants and is willing to pay for.”

The comedic, yet NSFW video for “Everyone’s A Hooker,” directed by Lucas Heyne (Master P, Spose, Romeo) showcases the idea behind Life Is Strange as a whole through a variety of different unconventional themes and acts.

Dvoskin, who has devoted his entire career to the industry, has found himself in a variety of creative roles, with his credits including Sammy Hagar, Brandy, David Bowie, Ricky Martin, Chicago, MTV, VH1, and Sony just to name a few. For more information on this great artist, make sure to check out LarryDvoskin.com and also head over to iTunes now to purchase Life Is Strange in its entirety.

Recording sessions often take unexpected turns. At least, that's what happened when Los Angeles songwriter Xander Singh began tracking his solo album with drummer Luc Laurent. The pair quickly realized an unusually strong musical connection between them, and decided that they needed to form a band. Armed with some additional samplers and loops, Xander and Luc began performing under the name Pepper Rabbit. Since then, the psych-pop duo has been building quite a following both live and on the interwebs, counting among their fans fellow L.A. darlings Local Natives, with whom they’ve toured.

This week Pepper Rabbit released their debut LP, Beauregard on Brooklyn’s Kanine Records (Surfer Blood, Depreciation Guild), and yesterday they premiered the first single “Babette!” on Brand X. Starting tonight, the guys will be on the road with The Rural Alberta Advantage for a two-week trek. Check out tour dates below.

Tidy Kid is a contradiction in itself, not only through the artist's name but also in both the music and image. With a sound derivative of Sigur Ros, Casiokids, and Syme who spawned from the dark beauty of Northern sunless countries of Norway and Iceland, Tidy Kid is based much further South, in the much hotter Brisbane, Australia. And judging from his beard, which is probably the most haphazard beard we've ever seen, it's hard to believe Tidy Kid is all that tidy.

Enough about what Tidy Kid is NOT, though, as he has proven to us that his music more than makes up the true identity of Tidy Kid. With a B-side remix just released with Warp Records' Bibio, Tidy Kid comes to us by way of one of those secret Commonwealth country agreements where Canadians (thanks Bloggertronix!) and Australians get along to make and release incredible pieces of art. Jealous.


What is going on with these singles????...............would have been my last pick!


HahhhahahahhhAHHAhaHAhah WTF is this really I don't even know where to start on this shit you know what fuck it I'm not even going to say anything but YET AGAIN he's taken something that could have been artistically interesting but yet we just now have a better insight in to Kanye's EGO! just rubbish................


I have mixed opinions on this it just seems more self indulgent the usual coming from Kanye.

The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger, who played, recorded and mixed Acoustic Sessions in their living room recording studio, will be the 4th album on their own record label, Chimera Music, run from their apartment kitchen.

Like a chimera itself - a mythical two-headed creature - The GOASTT work from one heart despite having two separate minds. Each are children of unique circumstances - he is the son of two artistic icons; she is the daughter of a Southern military family and was plucked into the world of modeling and globe-trotting in her early teenage years - The GOASTT draw from a scope of influence like no other. Their life experiences have sewn together their collective thinking, often filling in each other's sentences. Their talents and passions seem almost limitless. Musically, they've been experimenting with various forms, from wild psych and prog rock to acoustic folk to tongue-in-cheek hip hop meets French pop. After playing a number of small shows around New York City over the past year, on July 6 they released a Mark Ronson-produced 7" single "Jardin du Luxembourg," backed with a cover of Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot's "Comic Strip," en français. At the same time, they tucked themselves away in their studio to record two full albums. The first of these is the gorgeous Acoustic Sessions.

Acoustic Sessions shows their love of quirky and whimsical '60s folk pop, reminiscent at times of Syd Barrett, Incredible String Band and Simon & Garfunkel. Though stripped-down to spotlight their idiom juggling and intriguing wordplay, the sparse arrangements are adventurous and playful, anchored by the beautiful blend of Sean and Charlotte's voices, acoustic guitar and a smattering of other instruments - a vibraphone here, a banjo there.

The GOASTT weaves narratives around a metaphysical geography of their own devising, finding a surrealist beauty in the mundane. Their songs are like Dali's imaginary landscapes: lavender roads, oil slicks radiating rainbows, ballerinas tipping off tightropes, sweating snowmen, black and white films beamed from the future, Schroedinger's cat meets Pavlov's dog... Curiouser and curiouser, The GOASTT's world is a beguiling Wonderland and one stunning debut.

Last week North Carolina chamber-folk ensemble LOST IN THE TREES traveled to Capitol Hill along with NPR Music to make a case for NPR Music's mission. After a presentation by the public radio station, the band performed a live set which included four songs from their heralded album All Alone In An Empty House. As NPR music editor Stephen Thompson explains, "Lost in the Trees' gorgeous, string-infused music spoke for us better than even Amy (Schriefer, Product Manager) could."

NPR has now decided that the band’s recent performance should be heard beyond an audience of congressional staffers and “Washington fat cats” and so they have made a recording available to the greater public. You can now hear LOST IN THE TREES’ recent Capitol Hill set which, along with songs from their album All Alone In An Empty House, also includes the band’s dramatic new remix of the Bon Iver song "Lump Sum." While Justin Vernon’s original recording had an intimate distinctly home made feel, Ari Picker and LOST IN THE TREES enhance “Lump Sum” with further instrumentation, most noticeably powerful washes of strings and an echoing dream like piano, perfectly complimenting Vernon's beautiful and mournful vocals.

Tamar Kaprelian Performs "Should Have Known Better"
Live From Jack Johnson's Solar Powered Plastic Plant

Tamar Kaprelian has released another video from her sessions at Jack Johnson's Solar Powered Plastic Plant in Los Angeles, CA. This time, the 23-year-old singer/songwriter performs "Should Have Known Better" off of her debut album Sinner or a Saint.
The track is “definitely about someone who did me wrong and led me in the wrong direction," Tamar explains. "Had I not gone through that experience, I wouldn’t have written the record that I wrote.”
Sinner or a Saint is available on iTunes now.

Brooklyn’s Suckers recently reached out to some of their friends to put a new spin on their brilliant Wild Smile track, “A Mind I Knew,” and the results were pretty darn successful if you ask us. On Friday, RCRDLBL premiered the brand new remix, titled, “A Mind Less Known (Baryshnikov Remix),” by the new NYC production duo Baryshnikov, and yesterday AOL Spinner premiered that remix’s video directed by Matthew Caron.

Suckers’ bassist/multi-instrumentalist Pan told Spinner about the remixers’/director’s connections to the band:
"Mikhail Bortnik is the creative director & co-owner of Mishka (mishkanyc.com) and one half of Baryshnikov... he also used to be my boss. After teaming up with Mike Dextro, an old childhood friend, as Baryshnikov, it kind of made sense for them to do a remix for us. Matt Caron, who has been working with Mishka for years on various projects has also been doing live projections for us for the past couple years... it was kind of the obvious next move for him to make a video for the remix... the slime in the video is the same recipe from the old Nickelodeon TV show "You Can't Do That On Television"!"

Rad Tokyo girl band The Suzan took this song off 808s and Heartbreak straight out of Rhianna’s agonized corset and into something not out of place in a children’s Christmas choral zone. Not just any of those kind of recordings, but the quality ones that make it seem possible that great pop songs are meant to be sung earnestly by a couple dozen of regular and mezzo soprano’s with minimal instrumental and possible matching sweatshirts on. Like the kiddy Radiohead on that one Social Network trailer? Alternately, maybe its a kind of baby-steps psychedelic, krautrock thing. The Suzan’s Bjorn of Peter Bjorn and John produced album Golden Week For the Poco Poco Beat is released by Fool’s Gold October 26th.

Starshell, the artist responsible for penning such notable hits as Kanye West's "Love Lockdown" and "Closer" for Mary J Blige, has just released a behind the scenes video for her debut single, “Superluva.” "Superluva" will appear on Starshell’s as-yet-untitled debut album which features beat-savvy producers Will.I.Am, Scott Storch, Range, Ne-Yo, Jeff Bhasker and Ron Neffu Feemster. "Superluva" has a vibe that is reminiscent of the 80s and all about having fun. Produced by Fernando Garibay, the feisty electro-pop jam sounds right at home alongside recent #1s by Lady Gaga, Beyoncé and Ke$ha.

Mary J. Blige had the following to say about the up and coming sensation, "Starshell is not someone who wanted to be a star, she always knew she would be. She knew what she wanted then and she knows exactly what she wants now. She has a beautiful spirit, a beautiful heart and so much integrity and intelligence. I admire her will to be positive no matter what things may look like. She knows it’s going to always work out. She's destined and determined to be the best she can be in everything she does. God bless her."


This follows the release of the original track "Didn't Know What Love Was" - a collaboration between Bernard Sumner of Joy Division and Alexis & Joe of Hot Chip. The film is the second in a series of three

Baxen - Life In The Big City EP by nathantayloronline


Hailing originally from Bordeaux and Arkansas, based - very roughly speaking - in Berlin and coming on like PiL reincarnated as a French psychedelic soul revue, Paris Suit Yourself are the first "rock" band ever to sign to venerable hip hop label Big Dada. First single, "Craig Machinsky" is a furious tirade on the fetishisation and demonisation of blackness and sounds like nothing else you've ever heard.

The single, the first for Big Dada, heralds the release early next year of Paris Suit Yourself's debut album, "My Main Shitstain" - forty five minutes of powerful polemic and impassioned lyricism, all delivered with the kind of hooks that you find yourself humming (or screaming and shouting) months later.

Early press for “Craig Machinsky”:
“A TRIUMPH” - Drowned In Sound
“If you can form any words other than ‘wow’ during a first listen, you’re not paying proper attention” - CMU Daily
“The sound of nightmare munchkin people attacking you in your sleep” - Artrocker

On November 16th, Norah Jones will release ...Featuring, an album of the multi-platinum selling, multi-Grammy Award winning singer Norah Jones' musical collaborations from the past decade. The 18 songs on the album include duets with 21st century icons OutKast, Q-Tip, and Talib Kweli
"A lot of the people on this record are people I've worshiped since I was a kid, and some of them are younger and more my contemporaries," says Norah. "Even though the musicians are so varied, the vibe of the songs makes sense when we put them all together." These collaborations reveal Jones' astonishing musical versatility, from jazz to country, hip hop to rock. Songs on the album range from classics recorded by Ray Charles, to new material by such innovators as Q-Tip.
The tracks on ...Featuring span her entire career, from one of her earliest recording sessions with guitarist Charlie Hunter in 2001 to her most recent performance, a song called "Little Lou, Ugly Jack, Prophet John" that she cut with indie rock legends Belle and Sebastian, which will also appear on their new album. The result serves as a kind of parallel history to her own four albums, which have sold over 40 million copies worldwide.

...Featuring is available for pre-order now on Amazon and through her website. Visit NorahJones.com for more information and the latest news from Norah.

A-Trak keeps it hip-hop on the first leak from the Fool's Gold Vol 1 compilation,
teaming up with G.O.O.D. Music upstart CyHi Da Prynce for "Ray Ban Vision"

Rising Brooklyn act Mon Khmer (pronounced: Mohn-Kmair) is set to release their debut EP, Birthplace on October 19th via High Scores Recordings. Tiding listeners over until their forthcoming debut LP, the six track EP contains the highlights of their short but fruitful two years together. Playing alongside acts like Bear in Heaven, Secret Machines, and Micachu & the Shapes, Mon Khmer have been captivating listeners sending them into a groove/trance/dance mode thanks to their tribal relentless and hypnotic rhythms that are legitimately hard to resist with their refined yet unclassifiable sound. Some have made attempts, like Death and Taxes who wrote “You can easily parse out an influence of Battles in their sound for it was breezy and punchy, and their pool of effects pedals kept people’s ears perked up throughout.”

To celebrate the release of Birthplace Mon Khmer will be taking the stages in New York during this year’s CMJ, playing a startling five shows and sharing bills with Class Actress, Baths, Kisses, and Porcelain Raft. For a complete list of Mon Khmer’s CMJ schedule please see below:

Bosco Delrey, the stylish purveyor of electronic-tinged rockabilly, is readying his diverse set for performances across the US supporting Magic Kids this November. Hailing from New Jersey by way of Memphis, Bosco's sound references the sounds of Sun Studios-era recordings, updating the lo-fi guitar twang with the use of an MPC drum machine and vintage synthesizer emulators to create a wall of distorted dance/grunge, with other apparent influences ranging from southern rap to church hymns and dancehall. This seemingly impossible alchemy was recently manifested on wax when Diplo's Mad Decent released a stellar pair of Bosco Delrey 7-inches earlier this year, "Wild One/Evil Lives" and "Space Junky/My My Racecar", both of which are also available digitally.

Bosco has just finished recording his debut album, Everybody Wah, which is slated for release on Mad Decent / Downtown Music in early 2011. He spent the past summer in Memphis, TN recording with Doug Easley at his acclaimed studio whose alumni include the White Stripes, Sonic Youth, Pavement, Wilco, and Cat Power. Also, the legendary Beastie Boys have recently taken a shine to young Bosco with both Mike D and Ad Rock pledging remix work due later this month.

In person, Bosco performs abstract narratives that exist somewhere between electro-psychedelia and distorted grunge-hall. Audiences in Philadelphia, Chicago, New York and Los Angeles witnessed this sonic amalgam first-hand this summer as Bosco played the Mad Decent Block Party series. With so many conceptual hybrids existing in the same aural and geographic space, a Bosco Delrey show is steeped in possibility, the feeling that anything can happen.

"A sort of garbage can Elvis from New Jersey... teaspoon craziness, a pinch of rockabilly, and full cup of soul dressed in a leather jacket. He can't be topped as far as song writing... he's doin' the music I wish I could if I had bought a guitar" -Diplo

"The future is looking bright for this hillbillyhall pioneer" - Dazed & Confused

This is Amor Jones. I am sending an unreleased track that Nefarious! & myself made in late 2009. It was originally supposed to be the intro on 'The Wake Up Show' (which is coming soon!) but I decided to go with another song. I've been pretty silent as of lately putting the finishing touches on 'The Wake Up Show', so this seemed like the perfect song to release since I'm once again about to start frequently releasing music. - Amor Jones


Katy Perry sat down to talk about her new album Teenage Dream and how she decided on the title. The pop princess talks about the euphoric feeling that teenage love brings and how she wanted that to translate to the record

Syracuse chamber pop quintet Ra Ra Riot’s sophomore effort, The Orchard, was written and recorded in just that, a peach orchard. The experience of making art in this idyllic setting was filmed for the documentary Ra Ra Riot: The Making of The Orchard, directed by Taryn Gould and Emily Kowalczyk. This piece was included on DVD in the limited-edition deluxe version of The Orchard, of which only a handful remain at indie retail. The album was released on August 24th and debuted at #36 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, with New York Magazine calling it "poised to become the soundtrack to your life."

Now Ra Ra Riot: The Making of The Orchard is going to be featured and aired in full on video streaming site Hulu this Saturday, 10/16. The film will be part of a brand new Ra Ra Riot page on Hulu, which will also include three of the band’s music videos. A live performance from Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, filmed on 9/23 by Baeble Music, will be featured on the Hulu homepage this Saturday as well, with the performance ultimately living on Baeble’s own Hulu page.

Ra Ra Riot are currently on a North American tour through mid-December.

Burbank, CA – British rock trio Muse have been nominated for an American Music Award for Favorite Artist in the Alternative Rock Music Category. The nomination follows on the heels of their 2010 MTV Video Music Award win for “Best Special Effects” for their video for “Uprising.”

The American Music Awards will air live on ABC on Sunday, November 21st at 8 p.m. ET. For the fourth consecutive year, the winners will be determined by viewer voting on www.abc.com and www.amavote.com.

“Uprising,” the first single from Muse’s fifth studio album The Resistance, topped Mediabase’s Alternative Rock chart for 19 consecutive weeks, breaking the record for number of consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Mediabase Alternative Rock chart for the 2009 calendar year.

Muse, which is vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dom Howard, are currently in the middle of the second leg of their North American tour. Of Muse’s Austin City Limits Festival performance, the Austin American Statesman wrote: “These three musicians were at times reminiscent of the three musicians of Led Zeppelin and Queen — so intricate and yet so explosively tuneful. Didn't expect much and walked away convinced I'd just seen the greatest rock ‘n' roll band in the world.”

The band are touring in support of The Resistance, which earned Muse their highest-ever debut on the Billboard album chart when it bowed at No. 3. Muse’s previous album, 2006’s gold Black Holes and Revelations, peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard album chart. The Resistance also notched 20 No. 1 debuts around the world, including Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and the U.K.
