So It’s looking like Victoria’s Secret is taking a tip or two from Sports Illustrated, who featured “Open” by Rhye as one of their match up ‘artist to model act’ earlier this year; Now, the lingerie powerhouse utilized the same song in their new commercial featuring VS veteran, Miranda Kerr.
While at times the commercial seems a bit cheesy, Miranda does her best to make cotton underwear look sexy, as “Open” matches the ocean breeze and blissful waves in the background.
With virtually nothing known about the group, and only three or four songs that can be attributed to them, there’s no denying that this is still one of my favorite songs out for 2012 so far.
Orlando Bloom is one lucky guy…Or is it the other way around?
Every month I put together a playlist of what I’m listening to right now (check me out on Spotify – Jason Hazzard). Typically, the list consists of new jams that I’m really diggin’, but it would be a damn shame to not include gems from the past. This past weekend I was driving with my buddy who was in town visiting when “Vanished” by Crystal Castles came on. My friend turned to me and said, “Sonz, I’m lovin’ this. Who is this?”
Well, first of all, my heart basically skipped a beat before I remembered that Crystal Castles is very niche and many people (God have mercy on their souls) may not know them. As soon as I educated my longtime friend on the power of CC and “Vanished,” it dawned on me that I had a moral obligation to post the song on Fresh Musikk for all our party ponies to giddyup to ASAP. If you already know the song, you’re welcome for reminding you of it. If you did NOT know the song, you’re welcome for filling a gaping musical void in your life. Remember kids, musical ignorence is NOT bliss. Please enjoy the free download above.
This is a very interesting track- I hit the play button so many times that I know it’s a perfect, summer-laden, indie, rhythmic song. It has a bunch of ingredients that add up to a great summer routine.
I don’t know much about the two artists to be quite honest, but I needed to get this song out to the Freshmusikk listeners as soon as possible. I am going to be doing my homework don’t worry because I hope to hear more of this in the future.
In the meantime, check out this Youtube video about Dreamon and how he went about making the track which was pretty cool.
GREAT NEWS! Electro-indie goddess, Ellie Goulding, has released a new song, “Hanging On (ft. Tinie Tempah)!” It delivers just the cool, breezy track you need to get through your Tuesday slump and will surely put a smile on your face.
Goulding does what she does best, while English rapper, Tinie Tempah, brings some fresh rhymes that perfectly compliment the electro goodness of the tune. Goulding took to her Facebook to give fans a free download, but the link has been a bit spotty. Be sure to check out her Facebook to see if it gets updated! If you like it, it’s also availible for purchase!
The Killers has such a quintessential indie-pop sound, with a dark twist of mystery – simply defining the sound that all the other groups are trying so hard to achieve these days. After a nearly four year break, the serenely powerful vocals of frontman, Brandon Flowers, dominate the melancholy sweetness in their first single, “Runaways”; The track begins with a rolling piano beat and swells with percussion and equally booming vocals.
Thinking back to The Killers previous albums brings back a mix of emotions as I remember library cram sessions, old boyfriends, soulful lyricism, and above all, good music.
It’s featured on their upcoming fourth studio album, Battle Born, out September 18th!
*Music Video Monday*
Gurl, go on and show me your underwear!
Atlas Genius is back with their music video for “Back Seat” – and what did you do most in the back seat in the glory days? Make out, obviously. The video is a collection of flirty flashing, playful ass grabs, and lust at its finest.
The brotherly Aussie trio released their EP, Through the Glass, last month and while “Symptoms” was my favorite, all their songs reflect a chill, summery vibe.
So head to the beach, the lookout point, lover’s lane – wherever – and climb into your back seat for old time’s sake with a friendly friend, and do the song proud.
First and foremost, I just wanted to introduce myself to all the FM followers out there, my name is Cory Tucker and I just joined the FM team! My music taste varies a lot, but for the most part you will be seeing/hearing posts about folk or country music from me. So if you’re into those genres get excited and if not, I’m hoping to convince you to get into them.
As for my first post, I am really excited to share with you something that I actually just stumbled across. In the midst of a giant struggle to find the ultimate undiscovered song that I thought would impress all the FM viewers, I found instead something entirely different, but infinitely more cool: The Voice Project.
Back in April we had the opportunity to interview Cuey after his show in Boston, and he mentioned the creativity that went into making “New Religion” as well as his excitement surrounding his most recent projects. From the beginning, Oncue has surrounded himself with an incredibly talented creative team, as is evidenced through his videos, and the quality of this one is no different.
The storyline stumped me on this one a bit – as I inquisitively found myself trying to find ‘the deeper meaning’ behind Cuey’s infatuation with Dorothy (from the Wizard of OZ, duh) who coincidentally was a beautiful cardboard cut-out; And after an awkward, sexual moment or two of bedroom shots, his lust turns to anger and frustration – reflecting the power behind his lyricism.
The video could possibly represent the truthful fact that so many people strive to fix their problems by self medicating and covering up their problems with external lies, as opposed to looking within – ultimately causing the person to live in a web full of lies. A fake portrayal of one’s self.
Eventually those lies become transparant, and the inability to break through the guarded walls becomes tiring..I could be completely off base here, but take a moment and see what YOU think the deeper meaning of the video could be…
Also, peep the cameos from the producers of the track, Party Supplies & Just Blaze.
