!! OMG, a Q&A: Ladyfag interviews Casey Spooner !!

ladyfag-casey-spooner.jpg
This entry is written by guestblogger Ladyfag.

When many men start creeping toward middle age, they buy themselves a red convertible: a possible last hurrah or an attempt to bring back the crazy hazy days of youth. Not Casey Spooner. Formerly the frontman for the highly successful Electroclash art extravaganza Fischerspooner, Casey has just come out with a solo album entitled “Adult Contemporary.”
He says, “It’s sort of the opposite now. I’m actually wearing clothes. I’m not prancing around stage in a jockstrap to Electroclash anymore.”

The man can change the music, but can the music really change the man? I wonder what his new show is all about and in the midst of our conversation he mentions that he and Jake Shears (of the Scissor Sisters) have been hitting the gym to see who can wear the tiniest Speedo for an upcoming video.

The single (a duet), is called “Spanish Teenager.” The times they are a changing… Or are they? Let’s find out! Read the full Q&A after the jump.

!! OMG, new band alert: Bonjay !!

bonjay2.jpg
Bonjay is an up-and-coming dancehall duo that is so much more than ass n’ air horns (not that there’s anything wrong with ass n’ air horns). This week they released an excellent six-track mini-album called Broughtupsy that mixes deep dark dancehall-style beats with furious vocals and moody melodies. Mainly though, we are extremely blown away by the vocal range and unbridled emotion that singer Alanna Stuart brings to the Bonjay stage, so if the band stops by your town on their fall tour of North America, you should definitely check them out.
Below you can listen to Bonjay’s cover of the Caribou song “Jamelia”, their versions of “Honey, Honey” and “How My Heart Behaves” by Feist and the Broughtupsy track “Stumble”. Tour dates after the jump!

!! OMG, download the new Azari & III single ‘Indigo’ !!

DSC_6173 CROP.jpg
We’ve been hyping house act Azari & III for more than a year now and are happy to report that their profile among taste-making DJs, remixers, gay bloggers and not-so-gay bloggers is continuing to rise steadily.
Earlier this year they scored an underground hit with the infectious ’90s-style dance-pop throwback “Reckless (For Your Love)”, and for the follow-up single “Indigo” they get even deeper with silky-smooth dissonant wailing that borderlines total vocal meltdown. The track is Azari & III’s first release on their new label Turbo Recordings and offers a taste of what we can expect on their self-titled debut LP, due early next year.

!! OMG, download a new Owen Pallett song ‘A man with no ankles’ !!

owen_swedish_love.jpg
Erudite indie pop darling Owen Pallett turned 31 yesterday and to celebrate he made the joyous opening number from his forthcoming A Swedish Love Story EP available for free download. According to a statement posted on his record label’s website, this EP finds the performer in an uncharacteristically “posi” frame of mind:

To contrast Heartland’s convoluted record process, and also to cut myself a break, I recorded this EP in New York City over a week, using not much more than my violin, my Moog, a bass and a drum kit. It’s closer in sound to my first album Has A Good Home than anything else. It’s called A Swedish Love Story in tribute to one of my favourite films En Karlekshistoria and as a love letter to the Swedish pop stars who inspired it. This is probably the most posi record I’ll ever make, enjoy the mood while it lasts.
