MP3 of the Day #162: Penguin Prison

By on Wednesday, 24th March 2010 at 10:00 am

We’re a bit late on the ol’ Penguin Prison train it seems. The NYC singer/songwriter/artist has been burning up the web for a few months now it seems, and his new single “The Worse It Gets”, was released yesterday. Ignoring the slightly dodgy lyrics (about his car “Jenny” that “takes him anywhere”), it’s a funk-tastic stroll through 70’s disco, 80’s synths, 90’s guilty pleasures and 00’s coolness. The track was co-written by the gang of Holy Ghost!, so naturally, it’s a pretty amazing creation.

Whilst you’re enjoying the track below, also enjoy two remixes of two of our favourite songs from last year – Marina and the Diamonds’ I Am Not A Robot and Golden Silvers’ True Romance. What do you think? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Mencap Little Noise Sessions / November 2009

By on Sunday, 8th November 2009 at 3:50 pm

Following on from the amazing lineups of the past two years, the Mencap Little Noise sessions are back again this November to raise more money for the mental disability charity.

The lineup is almost complete, with a string of pretty amazing performances scheduled. Personally, I’m most excited about Editors day, along with the pop-tastic Alexandra Burke, Mika and Newton Faulkner days – all of the shows have great talent and with the promise of special guests, I say you should hop on down to Union Chapel to check out some great music. Head on over to the Little Noise Sessions website for more answers to your questions.

Monday 16th November
The Maccabees

Everything Everything

Video of the moment#102: Golden Silvers

By on Saturday, 15th August 2009 at 6:00 pm

Hot on the heels of their headlining spot on the NME Radar Tour this September and October, Golden Silvers are back with a new single, ‘Please Venus’, and a video to go with it. It’s no ‘True Romance’: this one is black-and-white themed, but it’s not without its moments of colour and humour. And the “bah bah bah“s will get into your head.

The ‘Please Venus’ single drops in the UK on 31 August.

Fresh from being announced as the headliners of NME’s Radar Tour later this year, this video for Golden Silvers‘ new song is amazing. Looking like it’s straight out of the 80’s, I love it.
