Fresh off the news that she’ll soon be heading to Byron Bay to play that little festival known as Splendour in the Grass, Lily Allen has just revealed the title track and video for her forthcoming, Kanye West-referencing LP Sheezus. And because the British star is all but a lightning rod for controversy,... read more
Calvin Harris is back with a new track titled ‘Summer’ from his upcoming fourth studio album, due out later this year. This brand new video has the obligatory lingerie clad girls, hot rod cars, some bikinis and a big party at a mansion…with lasers! ... read more
Dubstep champ Skrillex released his long-awaited debut LP, Recess, a few weeks ago with a quietness that was almost at odds with his full-blown, in-your-face aesthetic. Today, as we get the video for new single and Ragga Twins collab, ‘Ragga Bomb’, we see a return of the big, bad Skrilly that we know and love! For one thing, the song, with its reggae-tinged rave production, is completely... read more
It’s been three long years since we’ve heard anything from Girl Talk, the man who made it more than OK to love Kelly Clarkson. But today, the producer/mash-up artist known to his folks as Gregg Gillis is back with ‘Tolerated’, his new collaboration with Philly rapper Freeway and Waka Flocka Flame.
This joint, which ventures away from Mr Talk’s signature magpie nest sound of appropriated... read more
It’s official: there’s a new Jack White solo album on its way. Following on from 2012’s Blunderbuss, the White Stripes/Dead Weather/Saboteurs ringleader will soon be back with his second solo album, Lazaretto.

It comes with an equally trippy video too, so give it a spin... read more
Sexercize Come on baby (Bounce bounce) Sexercize Feel the burn (Ride it out) Sexercize When the song boasts a chorus like that, I guess we shouldn’t be that surprised to learn that the new clip for Kylie Minogue’s... read more
A dude with a boombox moonwalks on Mars while a three-headed nerd sings to a cosmos boasting technicolour intergalactic party vibes, purple bursts of light and a whole heap of wildly mind-melting stuff that has to be seen to be believed (a pyramid with legs! Crazy and colourful intestinal bugs! My head hurts).
Or: What the fuck did I just watch?
Yes, today Flume has dropped the visual accompaniment to ‘Space Cadet’, his monster collaboration with Autre Ne Veut... read more
When Adalita released her self-titled (and long-awaited!) solo debut a few years ago, I found myself crying on the train. Probably not the kind of thing you’d want to admit so freely, but it is nonetheless the truth. I think it was the track ‘Perfection’ that set me off. Seeping out of the headphones of my iPod was a track so personal and confronting – just the Aussie icon and her guitar and a story so bloody sad. It was enough to make many commuters on Sydney’s Inner... read more
