!! OMG, Genie-ooze: Astro Zu’s ‘Ma Body Sayin” !!

astro-big.jpg
Inspired by 60s psychedelia, 90s R&B and quite obviously Xtina’s “Genie in a Bottle London-based Astro Zu was raised in the 80’s in a commune by his astrologist father and yoga teacher mom. Here he would retreat into his imaginary cosmic world called ‘Astro Zu’ which he now returns to soundtrack.
Listen to and download his Aguilera-sampling “Ma Body Sayin’” below and if your “heart is saying no” then have a listen to his 2-track Zillion Dollar Uh over HERE.

!! OMG, ADVENTCOUTURE TIME: Todd Cole & Rodarte’s ‘This Must Be The Only Fantasy’ !!


Soundtracked by the evocative noise of Beach House, Todd Cole’s Fashion short for the Rodarte sisterhood follows Sidney Williams as a questing princess who seeks the dungeon-bound Elijah Wood.
With the help of her very own fairy godmother and a unicorn that she finds in a backyard sandpit Sidney fends off a hooded Darth Maul and ‘two hood-rats one cup’ as she ventures on a real-life D&D quest for jewelry and bespoke dresses.
One also for fantasizing, I’m now off to glue half a sweetcorn kernel to my ALBINO GOLDFISH’s head and knight him LORD TUNA-CORN THE UNICORN, then ride him about the paddling pool wielding my Rampant Rabbit vibrating rubber sword in the hopes that some such fashion siblings will dress me up in expensive leathery armour and silken princess gowns too !
Hey Olsen Twins, got any scraps for a poor pauper princess with TIGHT PURSE STRINGS and an UNSIGHTLY CLUBFOOT ?!

!! OMG, so timid: Pale’s ‘Fearing Faces’ !!


Duos are so eighties: The Pet Shop Boys, Eurythmics, Wham!, Erasure, Soft Cell ?!
London duo Pale are finally showing us face in their Charlie & Joe-directed video for “Fearing Faces”.
The video channels all the best eighties visual references:
bleach-blonde hair,
tiny hoop earrings ,
synthesizer companion,
holding the microphone chord out-of-the-way ever-so-slightly behind the body,
large-coated profile silhouettes and
strange zooming angled camera techniques…all so terribly eighties of course.
Do you know what’s not very eighties, the b-side I just wrote and mailed to them called “Fearing Feces” all about my most embarrassing scatting incidents, that’s so very NOW !

!! OMG, Bassist Hound: GUITARD DOGS !!

tumblr_mrc43ljf901sd2kgbo1_1280.jpg
With titles like ““Whippet, Whippet good” featuring Devo [above] and “Muttford and Sons ” [featuring Mumford & Sons’ guitarist Ted Dwane], BASSDOGS is our new favorite [for 12 seconds] Tumblr.
If you didn’t already think that the Chihuahuaist guitarhuaist’s gurn made them look bizarre enough, click below to see how popping a pooch in place of their beloved key-tar gives them that look of diarrhea-fear which -believe me- I see on a weekly bassist, girl I just look in my iphone mirror after getting fingered and plucked all morn’ !

!! OMG, BLINK IN MINK: Alexis Penney’s ‘Your Eyes’ !!


Having been described as “a goth RuPaul” by NME, and with comparisons to Sade and PCP by Liza Thorn Alex [Blair] Penney knows how to handle a reference. His videos are often heavily referential and highly influenced.
Having just released his album Window he presents his video for opening track “Your Eyes”.
With introductory tubular bell chimes, a plethora of plaid and a distinctly out-of-drag lack of eyebrows Penney’s gender bending community hall square dance presents a whole slew of intriguing drag personas through the mid-made-up mirror [behind-the]-scene and instrumentally monologued flapping floor-filled finale.
Click below to see Alexis’ previous videos for “Wichita Lineman” [a Annie Lennox-esque wardrobe of open shirt and black matador flares] and a deliberately awkwardly new~wavey cheap lights curtain-backdropped studio video for a remounted version of “Lonely Sea”.
