LADY GAGA "Born This Way" MP3 + OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Lady Gaga

Alright people, here we go. Lady Gaga debuted her new music video for her first single from the same titled album Born This Way earlier today. Having already heard the single before it absolutely chimes in on the Madonna-ness from her influences. That isn’t deniable. But the music video strays from that. Molded into a strange beast-like mix of just weird, half-breed vampire, pterodactyl, alien thing she sleuths through a birth that announces her evil being from the rest of the universe. Now, the story telling as campy as it was actually reminded me of earlier sci-fi films that I actually enjoyed. The eighties was the shit and still is. And with a combination of Madonna references (check them out on Idolator) and who knows which sci-fi films were hacked – the earlier portion of the music was enjoyable for me. The rest of the dancing and prancing as there is in any mainstream pop music video was what it was.

Lady Gaga does things differently. And if she has to keep doing it to keep herself in the limelight, good for her. She can pull it off. But I don’t think she’ll ever have the presence and longevity that the Queen of Pop has had.

CUT COPY "Need You Now" (Blackbird Blackbird Remix) MP3

Cut Copy

Blackbird Blackbird from San Francisco, California is a machine. He keeps churning out remix after remix and track after track. This time around he takes on Australia’s Cut Copy. Their eighties inspired new wave track “Need You Now” from their new album Zonoscope is chopped up and shot through a pulsating laser beam. At a short two and half minutes it’s real trippy and still contains Blackbird Blackbird’s visceral agenda.

LOVE INKS "Blackeye" MP3

Love Inks

This short clean jangling pop tune by Austin, Texas’ Love Inks hides the dark lyrics within its melancholy music. Their single “Blackeye” in its short two minutes it marries the taste of sweet and sour. Just the simple mouthing of “You’ve got a blackeye on your eye, and tell me was it from a fight? And did it happen last night?” in a circular round is just as dark as screaming satanic rituals through heavy metal music.

PRINCETON "To The Alps" MP3 + OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO

Princeton

Jesse Kivel’s (of Kisses) main project Princeton has released a new single titled “To The Alps.” If you’re a fan of Kisses, you’ll love this brand new track. A little bit more lush and full of layers filled by keys compared to their previous brand of chamber pop; this track is refreshing. If this is a change in direction, I wouldn’t mind it at all.
