!! OMG, gingers under siege in new M.I.A. video !!

M.I.A-BORN-FREE.gif
So many controversial music videos lately. First Gaga, then Badu, now M.I.A. is all over the internet thanks to a confrontational video clip about the hair color that dare not speak its name. It’s a nine-minute long melee of death and destruction that accompanies “Born Free”, the lead single from her yet-to-be-titled new album due for release on June 29.
It’s also the latest pop culture vehicle to use “gingerism”, or society’s ongoing discomfort with its fair-haired, be-freckled members, as a metaphor for more Draconian forms of discrimination. Who could forget The Catherine Tate Show‘s “ginger refuge” episode or the gingerfication of Cartman on South Park, which later inspired a Facebook group entitled “National Kick A Ginger Day”. “Born Free”, on the other hand, is way more heavy-handed. And NSFW. Watch it after the jump. Cop the song below.

!! OMG, new Tracey Thorn album: “Love and its Opposite” !!

thorn.jpg
Former Everything But the Girl vocalist and active tweeter Tracey Thorn announced the details of her third solo album Love and its Opposite earlier today via Pitchfork. It’s due out in the States on May 18 and will feature appearances by Jens Lekman, Cortney Tidwell and members of Hot Chip, as well as a cover of Lee Hazelwood’s “Come on Home to Me”.
The first cut on the album “Oh, the Divorces!” is available for free download below. Here’s what Tracey had to say about the song on her MySpace blog:

The last couple of years have seen so many of my close friends and family heading for the divorce courts that I couldn’t help but write about it (sorry, that is one of the perils of being friends with a songwriter). The truth is that not only have I not got divorced this year, I have in fact got married. Yes, you do know who to. A twenty seven year engagement may seem cautious to some of you, but I think in these uncertain times, it is as well to be sure of someone before you make any rash commitments. So stop worrying, the divorce bit isn’t about me. Sadly, the middle-aged bit is.

(She married Ben Watt, the other half of Everything But the Girl.)

Over the weekend Erykah Badu leaked the lead single off her new album New Amerykah Part 2: Return of the Ankh via Twitter and I’ve had it on repeat ever since. It’s called “Window Seat” and it’s all about the urge to skip town – pertinent subject matter with gloomy winter weather in full effect.
