Some news sources out there seem to be a little dense and are not listing to the restructuring of the pop songs in Earworm’s year-end mashup. This mashup has a relevant meaning to what has been occurring with the financial system and the state of the world in the year 2011. You can refer to pop music as the “lowest common denominator” ummm Slate, but if you listen carefully to Earworm’s restructuring of these songs, you will hear that there is always a running theme in pop music that he pulls together, even in such a clear way that even mentally challenged “journalists” that regurgitate postings from blogs should be able to understand.
Beth Ditto – I Wrote The Book
DJ Earworm just released his annual mashup of the top 25 pop songs from the Billboard’s year-end Hot 100 chart.
Now that 2010 is almost over, can we be done with Ke$ha?
Very interesting videos from a mysterious artist that seems to have the blogs buzzing trying to guest the who the artist is. Some suggest Christina Aguilera or Lady GaGa but I don’t think so. I am going to put my money on Karin Dreijer Andersson of Fever Ray or her brother Olof Dreijer of the The Knife.
And it would rock even more without Kayne pushing his ego-driven messiah crap on us. The video was created by artist Marco Brambilla who also did the brilliant elevator video for the Standard Hotel in NYC. The short music video is only one minute and forty two seconds and I don’t think it’s the new wave of music videos, but it is about one minute and forty seconds too long to have to have to look at Kayne. Just my opinion, I’m sure some of you worship love him and good for you.
Computers Want Me Dead – In Your Blood
Sounds like this New Zealand band is a little paranoid with a name like that.
via: Ohh! Crapp
This one is about a year old but still a good dance floor track.
Tobacco – Super Gum
I guess alien anal probes are mutual and when he “phoned home”, he dialed a sex line by mistake. This is such a weird video but kinda brilliant. I believe they have just edited together some old footage from an actual E.T. porn, but I can’t find much info about it. Reminds me of Diesel’s SFW XXX party clip.
I guess she was inspired by gettin’ her freak on with those American Boys. Video directed by Nabil Elderki
Hot! Video directed by Nathalie Canguilhem
It’s 1980s Britain again.

The song is growing on me and the video quite strange.
Love the new Kylie Minogue video for the first single off her new album, titled Aphrodite, coming out on June 6th. Might seem like an underwear or perfume commercial at first, but it keeps getting better.

Actually I think Goldfrapp is great but watch the new video for Alive and you will understand.
It’s Monday morning madness and this is a crazy video directed by Valerie Pirson for the 1974 song Bubble Sex by The Disco Chicken Project was the first item in my inbox.
Trippy video for song Vital Signs by Midnight Juggernauts directed by Krozm. The new album,The Crystal Axis, comes out on May 28th. Is it me or are they channeling some David Bowie?
I’m Deranged – David Bowie
Hot Chip must not like boy bands too much and all must be destroyed. Fun video!
Great video for Florence and the Machine’s Dog Days Are Over directed by Legs. I mentioned Legs video for “ I Wanna Be Your Dog” a few weeks back that was a subversive take on the casting process but this video seems to be inspired by drag queens.
I am loving the work of Radical Friend. Their new video for Yeasayer’s track One is an 80s new wave meets 90s rave with a touch of 70s Pink Floyd. Check out the Dark Bubbles video and read more about them at the Spy Films blog.
This video is channeling Russ Myer, Windy O’ Williams in Reform School Girls, Natural Born Killers, and finally Thelma and Louise. What am I missing? See if you can find Gaga as her brunette self in the video. I must say, it’s pretty damn fun to watch!
“You know what they say, once you kill the cow, you gotta make a burger” – Gaga
Noisia – Machine Gun
Have you have ever watched old episodes of The Addams Family on TV and wondered what was in the box that the disembodied hand, better known as Thing, popped out of? Well this video, by Dutch electronic band Noisia, might give you a clue. Warning to my vegetarian and vegan friends, this is a meat eater video and might make you wanna go out and throw blood on some animal-wearing fashionista. Also, I don’t particularly like the song, it’s a little too head bangin’ for me but if you really want a visual WTF, then turn it down and play a Mariah Carey or Miley Cyrus song with it. I bet Thing would totally be down with those two awful creatures.
Casiokids – En Vill Hest directed by Kristoffer Borgli
Casiokids is a band from Norway and I have no idea what they are singing about but they have a great electropop sound.
Uffie – Pop the Glock
Cute video that slips into moments of 80s-inspired consumer psychedelia. This song has been out for a few years and sounds similar to Ke$ha.
Acid Girls – Lightworks
Valentine’s Day that is.
These New Puritans – We Want War
Delphic’s music video for Doubt directed by Andrew Huang
Vitalic – Pony pt. 1 (Birds)
This video has been around for a few years but it’s still one of my favorites. Directed by Pleix.
She’s Got Me Dancing from Tommy Sparks. I know this has been around for while but it’s just so much fun to watch. Directed by Eric Wareheim, who also directed the twisted video for Major Lazer’s Keep it Going Louder.
Well, not really but close. Raindrops video from Basement Jaxx.
This video was directed by Radical Friend and it’s amazing. The song doesn’t do much for me.
Stop motion animation with over 500 pairs of shoes for Jenny Wilson’s Let My Shoes Lead Me Forward video. She has performed with one of my favorite bands, The Knife, on their 2003 Deep Cuts Album and makes an appearance in their video for You Take My Breath Away.
New video from Massive Attack titled United Snakes. The video, created by United VisualArtists collective, is far superior to the lackluster song.
New song from Gusgus titled Add This Song.
An old favorite from Amon Tobin.
Beautiful video for the single This Momentary from Manchester band Delphic.
New video for Seven by Fever Ray directed by Johan Renck, who also directed this visually interesting and chaotic commercial for H&M.
In case you’re having some robot lust this weekend, you might want to watch the new video from the Scandanavian duo Röyksopp, titled “The Girl & the Robot” featuring Robyn, and skip the new Terminator flick; it’s as dreary and morose as a lecture from Dick Cheney. I recommend staying home and watching the classic Westworld instead.
The Thunderheist video for “Jerk It”, directed by That Go, is toying with a little sexual innuendo.
I came across the video “Dancers” by the band Circlesquare and immediately thought of Robert Longo’s large-scale drawings from his early eighties series of corporate types twist into contorted poses representing some sort of frozen moment of being within the corporate workplace. Read more »
