“Take On Me”

Dig Your Grave

Here is a beautiful new video from Ladytron for “Tomorrow”.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


I am looking forward to hearing The Boy Least Likely To‘s new album which will be out on March 9th. You can sample some of it here. I like what I hear so far. I like it a lot.

Pac-man ghost lamps = I want.

New School of Seven Bells video for “Half Asleep”:

You can stream the full Heroes comp at MySpace. Good cause, good album. It’s just all-around good. In case you haven’t heard anything about this, they asked some legendary artists to choose a newer artist to cover one of their songs. So you get Beck doing Bob Dylan, Lily Allen doing the Clash, Hot Chip doing Joy Division, the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s doing the Ramones, and on and on and on. It comes out in Canada on March 3rd and in the US on Feb. 24th.

Darn that Starbucks! A few years ago I got the Sweetheart 2005 Compilation and now they’ve put out another one. This year, they are releasing a 2009 version and it sure is a winner. Yes, this is another comp of covers, and yes, this one is supposedly their favourite love songs, and yes, today is Valentine’s Day. You can hear A.C. Newman covering “Take On Me”, Death Cab for Cutie covering “Love Song” and more. I need to pick one of these up next time I go in for a venti soy chai latte with caramel drizzle. Fo-shizzle.

Remember the Cardigans? What am I talking about, sure you do! I enjoyed them and you did too before you got sick of that “Love Fool” song. In 2001, singer Nina Persson put out a solo album under the name A-Camp and now, 9 years later, we get a second album titled Colonia. Sample a track here¬†and look forward to it’s release stateside on April 28th.
