New Music: Icona Pop

So once again, the music that I am telling you about is not that new, but new by Billboard Hot 100 years. I swear everytime there is a song that pops up and becomes the anthem to my life, 8-10 months later Billboard has gotten a whiff of it along with Seacrest and all of a sudden I have to hear the song for another 6 months until it’s become disgustingly stale. I warn you, this will happen with I Love It, so I suggest you start listening to it now.

The song is great. Icona Pop is a Swedish House group consisting of two pretty bad ass girls who made the song that will be played at every feel good party this spring and into the summer. Their song was recently featured on the show Girls (which you should be watching if you don’t already- it is my life.) When the song came up I thought “Oh Lena Dunham, you know me too well, it’s scary.”

Listen to the song, you’ll love it and wonder what you’ve been doing with you life that you hadn’t experienced such joy before this.

New Music: How Gotye Won UrbanChiX Over

Six months before “Somebody That I Used to Know” became immensely popular, I heard it for the first time, and I liked it. Then came the hype and it was played everywhere, everyday, several times a day. Geesh, there is something to be said about less being more. This led to subsequent dislike for Gotye, which wasn’t his fault, it was the fault of Billboard Top 100 and that damn Ryan Seacrest. Then one day I overheard a song playing on a sound system and I ran upstairs to ask the woman at the info desk what song it was and she said it was Gotye. I asked if she was sure, because it seemed a far cry from the song that had been assaulting my senses for the past few months. The song was “Thanks For Your Time” from his 2006 album Like Drawing Blood. So the song isn’t exactly new, but still. Listen to it. It’s worth it. If you found yourself starting to dislike Gotye as I had, you need to go back and listen to his earlier work. It’s great. Enjoy!
