Sorry sorry sorry! Last weekend I was in New York again and this one I was working none stop all weekend. I'm off to Miami for a couple days, but will hopefully get some posts up when I have some time this weekend in Toronto... earnest



Goldfrapp glide back into the limelight this February with a new record that side steps the glam-pop chart success of Supernature. Now trumpeting a mellow, folk tinged atmospheric sensibility, Alison and Gregory veer Seventh Tree into pastoral territory somewhat explored with their debut album, but equally pop-ified to Felt Mountain as Supernature was to Black Cherry. The video builds on the Goldfrapp mystique, serene in nature, with shambling mounds of vegetation choreographed in swirling, collapsing oddity. Colonel Blimp's Dougal Wilson helms the lens. Watch the music video (qt).

BODYROX: Yeah Yeah

Admittedly, I enjoy both this this electro house stomper and its glorious soft core porn music video. Featuring firecracker vocalist, Luciana, and a synth line that stabs at my jiggy bones, it blew the eurotrash bronzed sets of Miami back to hurricane season. Get down with this London crew before the guido set hog ties it to Lameville. The video? Oh yeah... titillated by director Michael Baldwin. Watch the music video (qt).

CHROMEO: Bonafide Lovin'

Good times party duo Chromeo continue to bring back eighties inspired electrofunk with a third single from their sophamore release, Fancy Footwork. I was fortunate enough to catch the twosome as they brought the house down recently at the Bowery Ballroom. It absolutely blows my mind the Dave1 (aka David Macklovitch) is currently a Ph.D. candidate at Columbia university. Bonafide brilliant. This video is a riff off the iconic Money For Nothing Dire Straits video, reinterpreted by director Nima Nourizadeh. Watch the music video (qt).

THE FRATELLIS: Baby Fratelli

Considered the best new band in Britain by an avid 2006 NME, the Fratelli boys are nearly finished their second long player set for an eminent 2008 release. Bolstered here in North America by the unescapable inclusion in an Apple iPod advertisement, they subsequent singles tended to forever be eclipsed by such such instant notoriety. This single, with an accompanying video directed by Andy Soup and interspersed with footage from the London cop caper, Hot Fuzz, is a genuinely infection popper, incidentally touted by Time magazine as one of the best songs of 2007. Watch the music video (qt).
