Watch Playful New Music Video for: Cat Power – Manhattan

Cat Power - ManhattanCat Power may have graced our ears with her latest LP, Sun back in September, but today, she’s gifted us with an airy, playful music video for the beautiful, hypnotic and slightly somber track, “Manhattan,” (my personal favorite from Sun).

In a stunning, brisk urban scene, Chan Marshall aka Cat Power is seen traversing and dancing (backwards) through the beautiful NYC cityscape, participating in playful subway antics, and kickin’ it with the people who make NYC so magical.

The video was directed by Greg Hunt and Chan Marshall herself. Enjoy:

OMG New Jams – Purity Ring + Phèdre + Cat Power + Diplo

Purity Ring

Would this Purity Ring album come out already? I have a homie who’s already been ear deep in it, but of course he gets paid to write about rock jams and the such, hence he has his hands on it pre-release. The rest of us, however, have to sit impatiently, scouring the internetz for another leaked jam to feed our curious need to hear more of the majestic electro pop, crackle and snap that Purity Ring projects. The band consists of two Canadians, Megan James and Corin Roddick, both former members of GOBBLE GOBBLE, now Born Gold (another electro-tastic band). The album Shrines is set to release July 24th, 2012 – Hurry the eff up!

Their first debuted single from the album, Odebear already made its appearance on this blog, but just this week they’ve given us another gem to listen to on repeat. James’ poetic voice sweetly sings of enclosing/holding someone, literally inside her rib cage, and the steady electro beats make this song a fine shrine of its own to worship.

Purity Ring – FineShrine

What’s with Canadians being so amazingly fantastic at creating weird-o/magnifying/experimental/addictive electro pop? Keep it up. Phèdre‘s one of my all time fav bizarro-pop bands hailing from Canada and they’ve impressed me once again with Haberdash. And, get this… according to Gorilla Vs. Bear, they released this song in hopes to raise money, “with all proceeds going to benefit one of the label’s beloved Toronto institutions, UNLOVABLE, which was shut down over the weekend.” Enjoy:


Wow, when was the last time Cat Power came out with any jams and/or an album? Let me Google that for you. Hmm… I still don’t know, too long ago, but you guessed it (!) She has a new song and stuff. Apparently she has a new album, Sun, to be released September 4th. What a pleasantly unexpected surprised. Even better? This new jam rocks:

Cat Power – Ruin

So this last one, I wasn’t even sure if I wanted to admit listening to, Hah, sorry Diplo. I can’t say I listen to his mixes much, plus I also developed this aversion towards him when he started “Follow Fat Girl Sunday” on Twitter, in which he asks fat girls to send a plead for his follow, or at least nudes. Afterwards, I thought, “That guy’s kind of a dick.” Regardless, this jam IS catchy as hell. It’s off his new EP, Express Yourself, all of which is available to stream on SoundCloud here, which is kind of a nice guy thing to do… Kind of.

Coco in Iceland

Coco selfie on a glacier

Iceland is full of ridiculously attractive human beings. Seriously, every single one of ’em is a mega babe. Both men and women are tall, slender, and have beautiful long blonde hair. The Viking-esque guys also have these gorgeous beards and their hair is smoothed back with coconut oil. I couldn’t even make this up if I tried! The people of Iceland are also friendly, open-minded, fairly progressive, laid back and speak impeccable English. It just seems unfair to have an entire island populated with such beautiful people inside and out. And don’t get me started on the majestic geological wonders of the island.

What’s even more jealous invoking, is that the people of Iceland are excellent musicians and put on rockin’ music fests, especially for such a small country. It must be an island that starts with an “I” thing. Similarly to Ireland, the fierce alcohol drenched night-life and cold weather ushers people indoors, resulting in superb musical creations. The only reason being surrounded by tall, beautiful, musically inclined people in Iceland doesn’t bode well, is if you’re a shorty like myself (in comparison, of course) attending a music festival. Other than that, I don’t think anyone could possibly come up with a single complaint regarding the island of fire and ice and its perfect people.

I was in Iceland for almost a week, basking in all its glory, soaking in geothermal pools, hiking on glaciers, gawking at volcanoes and black sandy beaches, and standing in pure amazement at the endless number of massive waterfalls complete with giant rainbows. By night, I attended the Sónar Music Festival in Reykjavík, held in Harpa, the architectural wonder/concert hall by the shore. Sónar was a three-night music fest featuring a plethora of Icelandic and/or Nordic producers, DJs, bands and more. It wasn’t a music festival I’d typically attend, nor music I usually listen to, however, locals were out in full force, and who can deny a sweaty dance party? Yes, Diplo and Major Lazer were also there, but I’m not even gonna get into that. One Icelandic guy did turn to me and say, “Fuck Diplo, I don’t listen to that mainstream shit!” He also compared Major Lazer’s music to that of a “Donkey boner in your face.”

I missed a lot of bands ‘cus I was busy doing things like looking into the sky for a glimpse of the Northern Lights. I also kicked myself for missing When Saints Go Machine, but it was still a fabulous festival full new music discoveries. Here are my highlights:

Berndsen was my favorite dance inducing performance from a local at the fest. David Berndsen, the iconic, bearded synth-pop figure and frontman of the Icelandic group had plastered his face with blue stars and danced up and down the stage, occasionally jumping into selfies taken by fans near the stage. He was accompanied by two swaying twin-like long-haired synth masters including Hermigervill, one of Iceland’s “most notable producers” and an unimpressed bass player – A hilarious site to sweat up a storm to. Berndsen has released two albums, “Lover in the Dark” and “Planet Earth,” which he produced in collaboration with Hermigervill.

Berndsen – Planet Earth

To put it frankly, (Anders) Trentemøller is a badass, and so is each member of his band. The man isn’t Icelandic, but damn, the Danish producer’s got major presence. His show was dark, powerful and entrancing, though it certainly wasn’t over the top. He didn’t need gimmicks or dancers, or a giant clear ball to roll around in (ahem, Diplo) to captivate his audience. Trentemøller’s been in the music scene since the 90s, then emerged as an electro producer in 2006 with his debut album. He’s since expanded his band to about 7 people, has extensively toured the world playing all major music festivals including his own sold out tour. His 2013 album release, Lost is a whirlwind of musical influences, as well as large collaborative effort featuring Jonny Pierce from The Drums, Kazu Makino of Blonde Redhead, Jana Hunter of Lower Dens, and Sune Wagner of The RaveonettesTrentemøller continues to pleasantly surprise fans and audiences with his ever-changing and evolving music. As Vice stated, “Much like its predecessor, ‘Lost’ serves not only as a logical continuation of his work, but also as yet another fuck-you to whatever genre you thought you had him boxed into.“

Trentemøller – Gravity

 
Hjaltalín is a large 7 piece and beloved Reykjavik-based group with a genre of music that no one can quite pinpoint. They formed in 2004 as part of a high school song writing competition, and today they’ve won multiple, “Best Album of the Year” awards and recently scored the silent film “Days of Gray,” which premiered at the Reykjavík International Film Festival (they also won album of the year for this soundtrack!). The group was unlike any of the other artists we had the pleasure to see. They were slow, intense, emotionally driven and magnetic. They clearly had a dedicated fan following who were front and center fixated on Högni Egilsson’s long flowing blond locks, entranced by Sigríður Thorlacius’s powerful voice and taken in and away by the beautiful violin music. They released their third album, Enter 4 in December of 2012, which of course, won Album of the Year by The Reykjavík Grapevine: “Not only have they made the best Icelandic album of 2012 by a country mile, they’ve gone and  created a record that’s probably one of the most searingly bleak and honest record from an Icelandic group in what feels like…forever?”

Hjaltalín – Myself

ELOQ isn’t Icelandic, but we’ll give him a break ‘cus his sounds and visuals were simply addictive. ELOQ aka August Fenger Janson is a young “Danish wunderkind” who apparently already has gold AND platinum records in Denmark. He played to a giant crowd, was extremely grateful to be there, and was easily my favorite of the larger scale producers on the main stage due to his hypnotic “joytrap” jams.

 MØ – Glass (ELOQ Remix)

FM Belfast is a catchy electro-pop Icelandic band known for their quirky performances and colorful antics. They vary from 3-8 members. At Sonar, there were about 6 of them, two I’m honestly not sure what they did aside dance, but everyone loved it anyway. They were extremely charismatic and energetic and their cult following got up and down as often as possible. Their soon-to-be-released third album, Brighter Days is due out April 22nd via Record Records.

FM Belfast – Everything (from their forthcoming album Brighter Days)

Tanya & Marlon are eclectic, ambient Icelandic cousins and BFFs with an affinity for blue hair, bunny masks and heart hand symbols. They were playing in a room with stadium seating, which is hard when trying to get a crowd rowdy, but after their first few beats, people began to pile onto the stage and dance around them, which they gladly welcomed. They released their first album in Iceland via Möller Records.

Tanya & Marlon – ISIS
