Music Video: Tegan And Sara - I Was A Fool

Canadian twins Tegan And Sara have released their second single, 'I Was A Fool' after the all the success they achieved with their infectiously catchy 'Closer'. Unlike 'Closer', 'I Was A Fool' takes on a less upbeat and bubbly subject matter and instead opts for a slower and melancholic vibe.

Artist Promo: Creed Bratton Of NBC's The Office, Releases New Album

If you watch NBC's The Office then you probably notice the eccentric and odd older employee named Creed Bratton. He's usually sulking in the background and when he is making his prescene known he's usually involved in some shady activities such as making fake I.D. for teens or selling Kelly Kapoor (played by Mindy Kaling) a fake tape worm.

Anyway I was extremely surprised to get an email containing some info on Creed's new musical endeavors. Well it turns out the strange Office character is a musician in real life who writes music and was even part of a 60's rock band called The Grass Roots. He wrote some monster hits such as 'Let’s Live for Today' and 'Midnight Confessions,' which went on to become anthems for the youth of the 60's.

Well Creed will be releasing a three part audio-biograpghy/album entitled Tell Me About It, which will  cover the highs and lows of his career. The album will be split into three acts with act 1 being available on  April 16, Act 2 on May 7, and Act 3 on May 21st. Creed will tell you all about his audio-biography, Tell Me About It via Yotube video.

Act I - Let's Start Dancing
1. One Guitar
2. Faded Spats
3. Chemical Wings
4. Yeah, Hi

Act II - The Orange Juice Tastes Like Water
1. Pablo
2. PF Sloan
3. Unemployment Lines
4. My Name Is Leon
5. Heart Of Darkness

Act III - Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Obscurity
1. Old Ruminations
2. Move To Win
3. Better On Top
4. Emmy Awards (Featuring Rainn Wilson)
5. When I Settle Down

Music Video: Neon Hitch - "Midnight Sun" + "Pink Fields"

Back in January singer, Neon Hitch released a EP called, Happy Neon (exclusive streaming on, which was so out of the box from what she usually makes that I kind of overlooked it and then never posted the EP.

Well her new Marilyn Munroe inspired video 'Midnight Sun' peaked my interest in the EP again so I'm going to check it out and see if its worth downloading this time around. I just wasn't really feeling this deep artsy slow burner music from Neon after hearing all these upbeat mainstream urban/pop cuts but now I think I can wrap my head around it and appreciate her new sound more.

Download Neon Hitch's Happy Neon EP via her website

Music News: I Know I've Said This Before! The New Pussycat Dolls Line-Up Now Dubbed GRL

So The Pussycat Dolls new line up was like a revolving door with members changing so much that I lost track of the whole situation and kind of just lost interest in the whole thing but after reading some promising info on Idolater my interest was renewed.  

According to Idolater, Robin Antin has dropped the whole Pussycat Dolls title (probably due to all the baggage connected to that name) and decided to call her new quintet GRL because according to Robin Antin the reason their is no I is because "There's no I in team". Hopefully this latest Pussycat Doll incarnation see's each girl get some shine kind of like the formula used by now defunct girl group, The Paradiso Girls. Now all I have to do is wait to hear new music from GRL (re-vamped Pussycat Dolls) and Girls United (re-vamped Girlicious).

Group members of GRL from left to right

Natasha Slayton
 Emmalynn Estrada (Canadian singer Elise Estrada's sister)
 Lauren Bennett (former Paradiso Girl)
 Simone Battle (former X Factor US competitor)
 Paula Van Oppen (has appeared in tons of music videos as a dancer)

New Music: Jennifer Lopez - What Is Love Part II

Sometime this month an unreleased part 2 version of Jennifer Lopez's 2011 song '(What Is) Love?' leaked to the web. The remix or part 2 version samples Edwin Star's popular 70's soul anti-war song 'War'. Check out the unreleased magic below.

New Music: Teedra Moses - Can't Be Luv

Respected singer/songwriter Teedra Moses has released a new single entitled 'Can't Be Luv' from her upcoming sophomore album,The Empress Pride Collection due June 25th 2013. The song is really chill R&B track with some rock elements to it. Check it out below.

New Music: Kelis - Jerk Ribs (Formly Known As "Call On Me")

Trendsetter and many of your faves inspiration, Kelis has dropped a new song called 'Jerk Ribs'(formly known as 'Call On Me'), which see's the out of the box artist making music with actual musical instruments instead of synthesized production noises. Everybody knows I love my electronic music and anything that is really futuristic sounding (I make a few exceptions) so this song doesn't do much for me. Check it out below.

New Music: The Cataracs ft. Luciana - Big Dipper

The Cataracs have dropped a new fun track called 'Big Dipper' featuring singer, Luciana. Check it out below.

If you hit up The Cataracs official SoundCloud page (HERE) you can download this song and many others for free.

New Music: Chris Brown - Nobody's Perfect

A new HOT EDM track from Chris Brown kind of just showed up on the web a few days ago without any explanation that I know of. From what I do know the song entitled, 'Nobody's Perfect' isn't slated to appear on his upcoming album X, which if I'm correct will have a more traditional R&B theme (that means no EDM).

New Music: Lana Del Rey - Young & Beautiful

I've truly slept on how wonderfully marvelous Lana Del Rey is and I'm currently going through a weird mini obsession with her music but all my weird quirks aside. I've recently had the honour of hearing her contribution to upcoming big box office movie, The Great Gatsby

'Young & Beautiful' is like most of Lana's music in the way that its extremely moody and retro sounding. Check out the amazing masterpiece below.

'Young & Beautiful' will appear on the Jay-Z executive produced soundtrack due May 7th. The 14 track soundtrack will feature such acts as Beyonce, Andre 3000, Jay-Z, Fergie, Q-Tip, Florench Whelch,, and many more.

New Music: Natalia Kills - Feel Myself

I'm F***ing in love with Natalia Kills hard new urban track entitled 'Feel Myself', which leaked to the web yesterday. I guess its safe to assume the new track will appear on her forthcoming sophomore album, Trouble. Listen to the ear-candy below.

New Music: Ke$ha ft. - Crazy Kids (Remix) + Pitbull Remix

Instead of releasing the hella awesome 'Supernatural', Ke$ha has decided to release her catchy single 'Crazy Kids', which she's re-vamped & remixed by adding to the mix. The song is pretty good whether is in it or not but I find it kind of reminds me of a better version of Becky G's track, 'Problem'. Anyway hopefully 'Supernatural' will be Ke$ha's next (fourth) single from her latest album Warrior.

BONUS: Ke$ha is currently touring with Pitbull so it only makes sense that the two collab on a track. So check out Ke$ha's second remix for her track 'Crazy Kids'.

Artis Promo: The Neighbourhood Debut Album "I Love You" And New Video For "Sweater Weather"

New Music: Drake ft. James Fauntleroy - Girls Love Beyonce

So Canada's very own star rapper, Drake has released a new buzz single called, 'Girls Love Beyonce' featuring the mournful and soulful sounding James Fauntleroy.

In my opinion this is one of my favourite Drake songs that I've heard since 'Take Care'.

New Music: Cassie Rocks You To Sleep With Her New Mixtape RockaByeBaby

Cassie has finally released her highly anticipated mixtape RockaByeBaby, which in my opion is pretty amazing from start to finish. The 13 track mixtape is Cassie's second official body of work after her self titled debut album in 2006.

RockaByeBaby is faux  gangster mixtape featuring tons of rappers such as Wiz Khalifa, Pusha T, French Montana, Rick Ross, Jeremiah, Fabolous, Meek Mill, Too Short, and Ester Dean. The best track on the mixtape has to be the Pusha T assisted 'Take Care Of My Baby' in my humble opinion.

I'm wondering what happened to her Trinidad James remix 'All Gold, All Girls' featuring Trina and Lola Munro. The track was slated to appear on the mixtape and then it didn't make the final cut for some reason.

Download RockaByeBaby HERE

BONUS: Check out the now unreleased 'All Gold, All Girls' featuring Trina and Lola Munro.
