A year ago we wrote about London-based Cheatahs (a.k.a. Nathan Hewitt), a bedroom rocker with an affinity for cute cats and cuddly knitwear. He’s since recruited two friends to play in his band and relocated from the bedroom to the studio where he recorded “Froshed”, a nostalgic summer jam about those carefree days of yore. The track is taken from a limited edition, four-way split 7-inch released by Marshall Teller Records. Buy it here.

Melbourne-based synth pop trio Cut Copy will release their third album next year and to get everyone excited they’ve made a new song called “Where I’m Going” available for free download. Like their acclaimed In Ghost Colours album, the new record is expected to be heavily-influenced by Fleetwood Mac’s Tusk and Happy Mondays-era acid house/post rave music. Cop the song below and check out Cut Copy’s 2010 tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, hear the title track off Salem’s new album ‘King Night’ !!

KINGNIGHT_COVER_LO-608x608.jpg
Genre-obliterating band Salem will release their debut full-length King Night this fall but the title track, which hit the web yesterday, has already inspired some of the Internet’s top music bloggers to free-associate in weird, rambling blog posts. It’s as if Salem’s dark, distorted music contains a sinister power that turns any blogger that listens to it into Cyndi Lauper on Celebrity Apprentice. (Zing!)
For more on Salem, check out this post from last fall and our interview with band member John Holland.

!! OMG, Kelis covers “In For The Kill” by La Roux !!

Once a Sassy magazine model, now a dayglo jungle princess Kelis has reinvented herself many times over the years. But if one thing has remained constant it’s that her music is perennially underrated. This summer the R&B diva will put out her fifth album, a big sexed-up affair called Flesh Tone. To hype the UK release in May (it’s due out in the US on July 6) she paid a visit to BBC Radio One’s Live Lounge and performed a stripped-down version of La Roux’s hit single “In For The Kill”. Check it out below.

!! OMG, Nicki Minaj slows it down with Annie Lennox sample !!

Here’s a nice one from Nicki Minaj. The Queens native and Young Money member is fast becoming the most crush-able female rap star around and what’s not to love? She pushes for a more gay-friendly hip-hop culture in interviews, she’s open about her love of Enya and she just sampled Annie Lennox’s classic “No More I Love You’s” for her new slow jam “Your Love”.
A leaked, unfinished version of the song has been circulating for a few months now but this is the final mix, according to Minaj. The introspective lyrical style (think “I Need Love” by LL Cool J) and mid-tempo beat give “Your Love” a more grown-up appeal that will likely broaden her fan base beyond teenage girls and drooling hip-hop blogger dudes.
