atm-the gossip

You may recognize the Gossip as the group that released Standing in the Way of Control nearly two years ago. It was an album filled with hard rock layered with Beth Ditto’s lioness voice that provided the fierceness to every track. Their hit single from that able “Standing in the Way of Control” is probably the song that got them on the radio. The Soulwax remix was by far one of the heaviest rotated remixes floating around and still is. On May 19th, they’ll be releasing Music For Men. Their first single “Heavy Cross” is FUCKING FIERCE. Better yet, Fred Falke has done a remix of it already.Awesome. Damn, I love Fred Falke. AFTER THE JUMP YO!

Ok so as you guys know I have been a lazy ass and haven’t made any posts in April ’cause of final exams, graduation, celebrating, and yada yada yada. I’ll be doing super super quick reviews (like seriously under 100 words probsies) on Yeah Yeah Yeah’s It’s Blitz!, Boy Least Likely To’s Law of the Playground, Camera Obscura’s My Maudlin Career, and Phoenix’s Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix. Short and sweet just ’cause these bands have been blogged about like crazy for the past little while already and I’d rather cover albums that have had less attention more specifically. Plus, there’ll be a quick recap of two shows I went to, Mother Mother and Junior Boys. All after the jump!

Hi y’all. I know I know I’ve been so lazy and haven’t posted in a while. I am now a graduate! HORRAAAH!!! No more exams for the rest of my life, I hope. And, to celebrate, obviously lots of alcohol was involved but slothfulness, slothiness? too. Yup, I love to celebrate by downloading 50gbs worth of TV that I’ve missed out on while being in uni (WE ARE ALL THE PIRATE BAY)! It’s been awesome to just sit at home all day and do nothing but watch TV/movies. I’ve got How I Met Your Mother, all the seasons of South Park (even though I’ve watched them all already), Friday Night Lights, Dexter, Breaking Bad, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and a ton of others.

I’m going to have a massive post soon regaling all the music I’ve been obsessed with in the past month but haven’t had the time to write about. But for now, I leave you guys with three awesome videos while you wait with baited breath for my next post…right!? Tee hee =)

Video 1: Phillips Carousel Commercial; Director: Adam Berg
This is so sick and easily one of the best videos I’ve seen this year. If you want to see a wikkid quality version go here.

Video 2: Royksopp perform live for the first time in seven years…with ROBYN. “Girl and the Robot”.
OMFG Röyksopp are one of the few artists on my “to see” list left and if this is any indication of how their live shows will be…I am prepared to go to Norway just for this. Holy eff epic performance!!!! Check out my many Röyksopp posts!

Video 3: M83 – We Own the Sky; Directed by David Altobelli; Motion Design by Dan Norton; Additional VFX by Matt Divito

Vodpod videos no longer available.

What do you guys think?

I love music and want to share as much of it as I can! My promise with this site is that I will only post things I like. You won't find an MP3 on here that I haven't danced and sung my heart out to or other forms of art that I don't absolutely adore...etc. Hopefully you might grow to feel the same way too!

A caveat: all MP3's and other copyrighted media are used solely for the purpose of promoting and exposing an artist/band/individual.

So please support the artist! Buy their albums/works! Go see their shows!

If you are the artist or representative of said artist and would like the posted item to be removed, please post a comment or email me and I will gladly do so.

Also, if you have promos, remixes, news, etc etc, email me and I'll check it out!

Thanks so much for visiting this blog!
