!! OMG, on his knees: Todrick Hall remakes ‘Cinderfella’ !!


American Idol contestant Todrick Hall stepped into the dancing shoes of Jerry Lewis for a remixed update on the 1960 movie “Cinderfella” — although, obvious, in an abbreviated version. I’m partial to the original above personally (because, hello, Ed Wynn as the Fairy Godfather), but Hall’s spin includes cameos from Lance Bass, Janice Dickinson, Shangela and Willam Belli from Drag Race, and (most random of all) Aubrey O’Day.

Having collaborated in the past with Boy George and Man Parrish, the Kids had help on their new album Pantheon from Katie Stelmanis of Austra, Shunda K of Yo Majesty, Julie Faught of The Pining, and Reg Vermue of Gentleman Reg. The song “Poison” released on the “Shape-Shifting Mutants” EP features a collaboration between Kids on TV and Isabelle Noel who produced the track under the name SIQUEMU. “Poison” is about the authority of men in our personal lives, families and institutions and how no one has to put up them if they don’t want to.

The full-length “Poison” music video will be screened during a special Kids on TV performance this Sunday, July 29 at Sheroes Virtual Season in Toronto [purchase tickets], and then will premiere exclusively on !! omg blog !! next Monday, July 30.

!! OMG, she’s back (and nude): Bat For Lashes !!

Bat For Lashes has released the lead single and music video from her forthcoming third studio album, The Haunted Man, as well as its Ryan McGinley-shot cover sleeve in which, as you can see, singer Natasha Khan appears wearing nothing but a naked man.
The LP is Khan’s first since 2009’s acclaimed Two Suns and our first sampling of it is the single “Laura,” a devastating-yet-somehow-invigorating piano ballad that is going straight to the top of our feel-bad summer playlist. The video co-stars New York-based drag performer Lavinia Co-op and is very gay interest.
Watch the video for “Laura” below and check out a list of Bat For Lashes’ fall tour dates after the jump!

The Haunted Man is due out October 23 via Capitol Records.

!! OMG, summer jam alert: Le1f’s ‘Wut’ !!


New York City-based MC Le1f is going for gold in the 2012 Summer Club Jam Olympics with the booty-clapping “Wut,” a 5kinAndBone5-produced track off his Dark York mixtape (which you can download for free here). The music video for the song pays homage to Dragon Ball Z, ’90s R&B dance moves and Pikachu, who’s never looked sexier.

!! OMG, listen to Storm Queen’s “Let’s Make Mistakes” !!


Morgan Geist has released another excellent analog house single under his Storm Queen alias. “Let’s Make Mistakes” reunites the dance producer with Damon C. Scott, a New York City subway busker and the vocalist from Storm Queen’s now-classic 2010 debut, “Look Right Through” and its 2011 follow-up “It Goes On.” Not only is Geist one of the house world’s most respected producers but with Storm Queen he’s solidified his rep as one its best songwriters.
