Florence spreads her wings and manages not to come off looking like Big Bird in the video for Hurricane Drunk by Florence & the Machine, which premiered just a few days ago. This is one of my favorite tracks from the remarkable debut album Lungs. In other good news Florence & The Machine will be back in the USA in the spring. They play Terminal 5 on April 9th and they are also on the bill for Coachella. So excited to see them again! - Camille

Well this a delightful little remix package for Rocket the first single from Goldfrapp’s eagerly awaited Head First. I love the original but these mixes really amp things up a notch!
I keep changing my mine about which mix I like best – I’m back and forward between the Grum mix and the Penguin Prison mix – loving those guitars on the Penguin Prison mix at the end! Be sure to buy the single to get the rest of these. Soooo good! – Camille
Does it get any better than the above picture? I think not! Days later and I still can’t get enough of the Lady Gaga and Elton John collaboration at the Grammys – however as I’ve discovered sometimes its just not convenient to watch the video to get your Speechless/Your Song fix – so below is the live mp3, along with Poker Face.
In other Gaga news we finally have a high quality version of Fooled Me Again (Honest Eyes) and Retro Physical snag thosebelow as well. Enjoy Little Monsters! – Camille
There’s nothing I like better than a good demo leaking when I’m waiting on new music and I’ve played out the last release! Today three Kylie Minogue demos leaked from what people are saying are the X sessions. Come Down is very Bollywood flavored, could it have been recorded for the movie Blue? As always Kylie’s demo output is high! Take a listen! – Camille
Lionel Richie introduced a powerful performance of his classic Earth Song by Celine Dion, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson and Carrie Underwood at this years Grammy Awards. What a great line-up, very talented artists up there….couldn’t have picked a better group. The video screens showed images of a young girl in nature, and was filmed entirely in 3D. Gotta love the shots of all the audience wearing their 3d eye jewelery!
After the performance, Michael’s kids Prince and Paris accepted the award on his behalf. Why must they pimp out his children like that? I really wonder if Paris and Prince wanted to be on the show, or they were forced to. Scary stuff.
