SXSW Artists Torrent, Mika - Grace Kelly (video), Britney covers Amy Winehouse (video), more

  • Can't make it to SXSW? Here's the next best thing: The SXSW Artists Torrent
    739 artists, 739 MP3s, 3.1GB

  • mika grace kelly music video Mika - Grace Kelly (video)
    Mika is blowing up in the UK. With his effortless falsetto, songs like this draw comparisons to Queen and the Scissor Sisters. His new album carves an interesting twee pop niche that will likely polarize listeners; but for now, I'm happy to join the bandwagon.

    Britney covers Amy Winehouse's 'Rehab'. Well, not really. But this is pretty funny (mean, yes, but funny nonetheless).

    Robyn will soon release 'Konichiwa Bitches' in the UK with remixes from Trentemoller and Menta. This hodgepodge of lunacy is a hilariously cheesy early contender for music video of the year. Get your karaoke on!

The Essex Green and Camera Obscura at Logan Square Auditorium. Lily Allen - Alfie (video), more

  • I commend those of my fellow Chicagoans who braved the -20 degree F wind chill to attend the The Essex Green and Camera Obscura show at Logan Square Auditorium on the eve of the Superbowl (GO BEARS). Even walking 3 1/2 blocks from the car to the venue was painful. My eyeballs started freezing up, my lungs hurt, and my eyebrows became numb. I apologize for not having pics; the lens mechanism got frozen. J/k, I just forgot it and my camera phone sucks.

    The Essex Green put on a solid if unspectacular show. They played new and old stuff including "The Late Great Cassiopia" and many selections from their 'Cannibal Sea' LP, including "Penny & Jack" and an energetic rendition of "Don't Know Why". The crowd seemed pretty restless in anticipation of Camera Obscura, but the talking continued through Camera Obscura's set.

    Tracyanne Campbell handled the rude talkers with grace by changing up the lyrics to "Books Written for Girls". Instead of:

    People get shocked in many ways
    I disappoint you
    I can't see through your perfect smile
    She sang:
    People are rude in so many ways [or something to that effect]
    They disappoint me
    When they talk through my perfect song which the quieter fans in the audience enthusiastically applauded. They opened with "Let's Get Out of This Country". After closing a slow stretch of their set with "Country Mile" they concluded with "Lloyd, I'm Ready to be Heartbroken" and "If Looks Could Kill", followed by two encores including "I Need All the Friends I Can Get" with the Essex Green on stage (this was their last tour stop together). Needless to say, Camera Obscura moved up several spots on my list of favorite artists.

    "Alfie" is a pretty dumb song, but this video is hilarious.

    Do the "Charleston" to Daft Punk's "Around the World".
