Flamingo Crash

While this is nowhere near a new album, I love Triangle Island. Straight up fun electronic pop. And there’s a wide range of mood going on throughout the album – upbeat to rowdy noise and mellow pop. All really catchy. If only their name was different!!!!


O.K. I just have to …

throw out a video for Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head. While I’m excited about Brite Futures (see previous post), I reaalllly loved NPSH.

I love Little Dragon. Love. A lot. I have a total girl crush on Yukimi Nagano, a voice crush on her, and a major all over love crush on the band’s sound. It just all always works for me. Electro pop that is very groove driven in such an effortless way. The third album, Ritual Union, is a dreamy listen. I can’t get enough of Nagano’s voice. There’s something so tribal about her delivery. This next video is a really old song of theirs that I love, I get lost in it.   A perfect visual and musical moment.

I tried and tried to have the video right HERE for their collaboration track “Don’t Play No Game That I Can’t Win.” But my brain couldn’t make it happen. So click here to make it happen. And click it fo’ sure. Cuz it’s funny and rad and one of the best tracks on the new Beastie album. Fu-nny.

Did I mention it’s funny?   Click …… the …… link.

Shameless self indulgence. Love this band. 

Feeling them hard today. Waiting for a new album …

Bahahahaha … priceless.

Freakin’ fun ass jams. Synth-electro. It’s about the party. Straight love everything I can find by them, which thus far, has been via videos on myspace. Reminds me of when I first heard Chromeo, instant fawning and dancing. Such a sucker for synth.

Their new album Rolling Blackouts just makes me all bouncy and happy and you know, feelin’ good! I dig when bands have so many sounds all coming together for an upbeat boogie down. Here’s the trailer for their new album.

So super rad … and check out the full length video for “Apollo Throwdown” featuring Dominique Young Unique (who is a total badass in her own right). Get your spazz on.
