Best of the Decade Part II: Indie is to come! If you haven’t already check out my Best of the Decade Part I: Electronic! Anyways, this week I share songs by:

Reflection Eternal, one part Talib Kweli, another part DJ Hi-Tek. They released their first album Train of Thought all the way back in 2000. TEN YEARS LATER they’re coming out with another album, Revolutions Per Minute due in MARCH! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOORAH! They’ve so far released two singles “Back Again” and “Just Begun”. The latter is my favorite and features Mos Def, Jay Electronica and J. Cole!

Clubfeet, a band from Australia (according to their myspace). A few years back they dropped Gold on Gold which pretty much scanned under the radar of EVERYONE, even their AMAZING pop single “Teenage Suicide”. I have no idea why. It’s smooth pop. Soft dance music. It’s cute and joyful but not too overbearing. I thought it was a pretty solid album with other singles such as “Count Your Lovers” and “BrightLightsBigCity”. After this LP they dropped off the planet…they haven’t made anything since and from the state of their myspace they must be on a hiatus of some sort…If I had a Best Tracks of the Decade or anything remotely as ambitious…this song would be on it.

Kylie was my main reason in going to New York. She was also playing in Toronto but I was like, eh, now that I’m in MTL, I’m almost equidistant from Toronto and New York. Pourquoi pas New York? A good excuse to go to a city I haven’t been to in five years. Plus, my friends in Vancouver were flying all the way to New York for this too! And so off I went in my rideshare and six hours later I arrived in the Big Apple.

My friends and I lined up at noon in front of the Hammerstein Ballroom. Yes, we lined up for eight hours. In the cold. But we suuuuuuuuuuucked it up. Had 4 mickies of vodka. And were dancing it up with everyone else in line, getting pumped up, raving about how beautiful Kylie was going to be. Bouquets were given to her as she arrived at the venue. Emotions were high. The doors opened and we ran in and got third row from the front. AMAZING.

Now, I’m a massive Madonna fan. I love Madonna. I would marry her if I could. Even though she is SUCH a diva. But I would. Followers of ATM, you guys would know this by now. She is, imo, probably the single greatest female entertainer in pop history but believe me when I say,  Kylie blew Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet tour out of the water. Madonna who?!!?!

Though Kylie hasn’t received much North American success except for her very freshman days with “Locomotion” and later on with “Can’t Get You Out of My Head”, her cult of followers is nothing short of astounding. And because it was her first North American tour ever, she just couldn’t let us down despite our absolute devotion to her (and the fact that we’d love her no matter what) and our sky high expectations of just how incredible it was going to be (but we’d love her anyways if it wasn’t sated). We all knew this and she knew this and so because Kylie in a way had nothing to lose, and all to gain, she went 110% in combining all her previous tours, mixing what the Western fans have missed out on for so many years and gave us what we waited so long for. And so Kylie put on, I think, one of the best pop performances of the year. Maybe the best. Je blague pas.  UUUUGGGH KYYYYYYYYYYYYLIE!

Ok, enough moaning, after the jump for the concert recap, pics, setlist and myoosik!

Ah yes Kylie. My favorite Australian Pop Queen. A song from her guarantees dirty dancing, body grinding, and weight loss induced by hardcore unstoppable dancing. Her pop music is contagious. It’s infectious. You are pulled in by her smoooooth cooing and the memory of those unforgettable red lips and lioness stare one see’s so often in her videos. It is electro pop like Annie and Little Boots but to the sensual extreme…You lust for it, can’t stop thinking about it, feeling the beats, moving to the rhythm, you can’t help but want more.
