  • teki latex mp3 free music download Teki Latex - Les Matins De Paris (MP3)
    Tasty french electro pop from Teki Latex featuring Belgian pop tart and actress Lio. One of my favorite tracks of the year so far. Big thanks to Discobelle for posting this earlier.

  • sophie ellis-bextor catch you video Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Catch You (video)
    I like this song better now that I've seen the video. She looks a bit anorexic though. The song is very energetic but her vocal delivery is rather nonchalant. I guess that's part of her appeal, but it's hard for me to really get into the song. Not coming from the UK, I don't know much about her except her club hit from a few years back with Spiller, spiller sophie ellis-bextor video "Groovejet".

  • pharoahe monch gun draws video Pharoahe Monch - Gun Draws
    A public service announcement from Pharoahe Monch. This is an internet-only video deemed to graphic for MTV.

  • new young pony club ice cream video New Young Pony Club - Ice Cream (video)
    This ranks up there with 'Test Icicles' among the worst band names ever. The video is tasty though. The single will see a stateside release soon.

  • Cell phone bling rivaling the iPhone: Prada.

Grizzly Bear - Knife (Girl Talk Remix)(MP3), The Pack - Candy (MP3)

  • grizzly bear girl talk clipse mp3 music download Grizzly Bear - Knife (Girl Talk Remix)(MP3)
    Girl Talk mashes Grizzly's Bear's "Knife" with Clipse's "Wamp Wamp", then throws in some lines from Ying Yang Twins' "Jigglin'" for some more fun, plus the 'whoop' from Armand Van Helden's "Witch Doctor". There are surely other samples mixed up in there too. The result is a mind-altering sonic re-interpretation. It's sure to rock your booty.

  • hyphy mp3 music download The Pack - Candy (MP3)
    What happens when crunk meets the Bay Area and embraces getting stupid and retarded? Just ask Too $hort and E-40 about 'hyphy'. Too $hort's has some new proteges, The Pack, whose sound is fairly typical of hyphy. It sounds like a Ying Yang Twins track mixed with "Tootsie Roll".

    Songs like this make her album not a total waste. This one is light years better than 'Wind It Up'. [cred].

  • hot chip arrest yourself video Hot Chip - Arrest Yourself (video)
    The new video from Hot Chip is like a watching-paint-dry version of The Matrix.

  • mp3 music download The National Pool - AO1 (MP3)
    The National Pool hail from Nashville and create an intresting fusion of indie rock and electronic elements on this track.

  • mystery of picasso time lapse video The Mystery of Picasso - Google Video
    Watch Picasso in a time lapse video as he creates an oil painting...his own way. Just when you think you know what's going on, you don't. It helps me appreciate his work a lot more.
