Sorry / not sorry for not posting in forever. Featured above is the English musical 4some “Arthur Beatrice,” posed, it seems, to look a lot cooler than they probably are in life (note how half the band is too Gucci to face the camera at their own photo shoot). Whether Arthur Beatrice is the name or names of the musician(s), I don’t know. Their only EP to my knowledge, Carter, was released this July. Sorry / not sorry for posting a song that’s been out for more than three months. Listen.
The Athens-based musical duo Marsheaux has been producing provocative synth-pop for almost a decade. I was introduced to them this summer when hearing their April 2013 album Inhale. Their recent work represents the most progressive trends in the genre. Below is the video for “Can You Stop Me?” from the same release. Also check out their single “Summer” which dropped this month.
After taking 6 weeks off to study for the bar exam and travel in Europe, we’ve put our priorities back in order. We’ll be blogging again about music and pop culture. Sorry, we got a little sidetracked there. We have a lot of new stuff coming your way soon. But in the meantime, enjoy this moment between Premier Vladimir and a puppy.
Proof once again that the world’s best music comes from Sweden. See also: Niki and the Dove, The Knife, etc. Postiljonen’s Skyer is out July 5th. Check out more from the band below.
I’m so sick of Facebook that I consider deleting my account every few days. That website does have its benefits, though. Having hundreds and hundreds of virtual friends naturally leads to an occasional post introducing me to something cool. Take this band I found there yesterday, for example. Kitten has tendencies toward a familiar femme-fatale art-punk foursome – BUT, and I say BUT – they have a few uniquely redeeming qualities. Their singles are infinitely remix-able, their sound has a transgender appeal, and (most importantly from a popular standpoint) they’re very danceable. So why hasn’t Kitten broken into the mainstream?
They’re too good. They deserve your deliberate consideration.
