Rihanna - Only Girl (In The World)

This has really grown on me. Video premiere!

Sergio Mendes - Magalenha

Just needs to be appreciated...

Lissie - When I'm Alone

Does it get any better than this? One of my favorite songs of 2010!!

Local Natives - "Eyes Wide (Fool's Gold Remix feat. Aristotle Pop A Bottle)"

Local Native's album Gorilla Manor is so good! Get It. Seriously.

And this remix of Wide Eyes by Fool's Gold is unreal!

Katy Perry Feat Snoop Dogg - California Gurls (Inner Party System Remix)

You know, I never really liked the song. But LOVED the remix. All that Ass!

Matisse- Better Than Her [Mixin Marc & Tony Svejda Remix]

Heard this yet? Maybe on MTV's "The Hills" perhaps?

I mean how catchy is this jam?

Run To You (Bryan Adams vs. Pascal)

Talk about an 80's throw back - I've never heard Bryan Adams sounds so GAGAlicious!

Static Revenger & Richard Vission ft. Luciana 'I Like That'

Other than the fact that he rocked it on his remix of Hilary Duff's "Reach Out (And Touch Me)", I don't know a lot by this Richard Vission guy.

He does very evidently use the same beat from Duff's "Reach Out" mix on his latest dance track "I Like That" featuring Static Revenger and Luciana. After being featured on MTV's "Jersey Shore" this song quickly transcended into one of the summer's best club hits. I think this Vission dude has a very Guetta-esque career ahead of him!

Human Life 'In It Together'

Another one of my favorite songs of '10

Beyonce - Smash Into You (Flash Brothers Remix)

Best Beyonce song off her last album, imo, but only cause of this incredible remix


Majorly feeling this /\/\ /\ Y /\ jam right now

Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros - "Home"

Anyone else hear this during an NFL football commercial over the weekend??

Florence + the Machine- "Heavy In Your Arms"

Why am I just NOW getting around to listening to this gorgeous Florence + the Machine track off the Twilight: Eclipse soundtrack?? UGH-mazing!

Sameer Gadhia of Young The Giant

Love this man's voice!

Willow Smith - Whip My Hair

What do you think of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith's daughter Willow's first single?

Not bad, imo. Do we have a baby Rihanna in the making??

"Must-Download Song" Du Jour

Blake Lewis - Heartbreak On Vinyl (LA Riots Radio Edit) is a masterpiece. It's like Michael Jackson's Thriller threw up on Blake Lewis's already catchy hit. It's actually a pretty good song for the Haunted Halloween time. Enjoy

Mark Ronson & Boy George's "Somebody To Love Me" Video is Brilliant!

OMG, this new Mark Ronson video is a blast into Culture Club's past. With Boy George, Miike Snow's Andrew Wyatt, and Scissor Sister's Jake Shears on vocals, the song is a surefire hit. The video is so interesting as it takes you through a time in Boy George's life back in the 80's. And, boy was he beautiful!

Fred Falke's remix of Florrie's 'Call 911'

Florrie, a breakout artist this year, is someone whom I expect big things from in the very near future. Check out Fred Falke's excellent take on her already great hit "Call 911"

VEVO Go Shows: Florence + The Machine

For any Florence fans out there, this Vevo Go Show video takes an excellent look at Florence's post VMA promotional tour.

Jamie xx - Far Nearer

Double xx postings today. This time the xx's incredibly talented beatmaker, Jamie xx has released a solo single entitled "Far Nearer." Utilizing a steel pan, Jamie's produced a beautiful ethereal song, that has me highly anticipating his solo project.

Four Tet remixes The XX's "VCR"

Needs to be appreciated! Nuff said

Kanye West - "Power" SNL Performance

Kanye West is the man, guys. I seriously wish he had performed this at the VMA's instead of his stupid douche-bag song, LOL. This is easily the best Saturday Night Live performance I've ever seen.

Antony & the Johnsons "I'm In Love"

Antony Hegarty is the lead singer of Antony & the Johnsons. He won the highly coveted Mercury Prize for Best New Artist for his second studio album I Am A Bird Now. For those of you familiar with Florence + the Machine, she won the award this year!

Now many of you may have heard his super catchy song "Blind" on his side project Hercules & Love Affair. "Blind" ranked #2 on the 10 Best Singles of 2008 by Entertainment Weekly.

Antony also does an amazing cover of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love."

He has a new album coming out on October 11th called "Swanlights" and this is my personal favorite from it. It's called "Im In Love." There wasn't a music video for it yet, so I made one. Enjoy!

Florence + The Machine - Dog Days Are Over

Still can't get over how incredible this video is! Hands down, she was the best performer at this year's VMA's!

In Flagranti - I Hadn't Screwed Around Before

Just enjoy it.

Young the Giant - My Body

These guys recently opened up for Marina & the Diamonds and in my opinion stole the show. It's not often an opening act moves me the way they were able to. 

There is something quite amazing about lead singer Sameer Gadhia's voice. I hear a lot of Brandon Flower's "Crossfire" in the song, and there's definitely a Kings of Leon and Roonie resemblance.

Usher- DJ Got Us Fallin' In Love (DJ Kue Remix)

This song will not get out of my head! Ever since hearing it blasting on the club speakers last night, I've had the chorus subconsciously on repeat. Of the 9 remixes I've accumulated over the past months since this song's release, this one by Mike Morales aka DJ Kue is definitely the 


"Shampain" hands down was the best song at the Marina & the Diamonds show on September 9th at Lincoln Hall in Chicago.

To be honest I have never really given this song the attention it deserves. While endlessly playing my favorites "I am Not a Robot", "Mowgli's Road" and "Obsessions" for months, I had only once listened to "Shampain."

The energy Marina evokes while performing this song made it easily the greatest crowd pleaser. If you get the chance to see Marina, you have to go. She does not disappoint. And, I got the feeling I was watching a pre-Gaga Stefani Germanotta, which was quite neat.
Literally days after my concert-enduced love affair with this song, Marina released this excellent Michael Jackson "Thriller" themed video. Check it out below!

Rihanna - Who's That Chick

Found this gem last night at one of the gay bars in Boystown. How perfect, right? The video is a blast into the 90's past and has a very Aqua- "Barbie Girl" feel to it. 

While, I still prefer her prior single "Only Girl (In the World)" to this, I am loving Riri's new direction. Can't wait for some killer remixes to both!

Lissie Covers Gaga

This happens to be the best cover of Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" that I have heard. 

I have become quite the fan of Lissie ever since first hearing her raspy and beautiful voice on Morgan Page's "The Longest Road." The deadmau5 remix is quite nice!

Lissie is finally ready to journey out on her own as her debut album Catching a Tiger drops June 22nd.

But for now enjoy "Bad Romance" Lissie style!
