!! OMG, watch the Perfume Genius video “Dark Parts” !!


Perfume Genius has traded in porn star Arpad Miklos for a new co-star: his mom. “Dark Parts” is the second song off Seattle singer-songwriter Mike Hadreas’ great Put Your Back N 2 It album to receive a music video treatment and his casting decision is not surprising when you consider song’s subject matter. In the the album’s press notes, Hadreas describes it thusly:

This song is about my mom. I was worried about showing her, but she cried through the whole thing. I wanted to take something from her life that wasn’t happy, and turn it in to something triumphant, to remind her how strong and beautiful and loved and important she is. She doesn’t like the last line and says that her dark parts belong to her alone.

!! OMG, download a new Mykki Blanco song: “Wavvy” !!

Mykki-Blanco-Rave.jpg
New York rapper Mykki Blanco was one of the up-and-coming acts to feature in a recent Pitchfork article on the city’s queer hip-hop scene. Up until now, however, the drag punk-rap mercenary hasn’t released much in the way of recordings.
That situation is about to change. This month, Blanco is putting out the single “Wavvy,” a collaboration with producer Brenmar, and has two more releases in the pipe: the mixtape Cosmic Angel, which will feature production from Gatekeeper, Teengirl Fantasy, Nguzunguzu and more, and the EP Mykki Blanco & the Mutant Angels, due out on May 15 via UNO and OH-WOW. Unlike the club-friendly “Wavvy,” the latter will emphasize Blanco’s scream-y, free-form punk side.
Download “Wavvy” below and check out a video Mykki Blanco freestyling for a group of high school kids after the jump.

British pop star Little Boots has teamed up with Hercules and Love Affair’s Andy Butler to record a life-affirming piano house track (is there any other kind?) entitled “Every Night I Say A Prayer.” It was released as a limited edition 12-inch vinyl single for Record Store Day last weekend but for those of us that were too busy sleeping in (unlike Andy Butler apparently, who is pictured above holding his copy), Little Boots has made the song available for free download along with an epic Tensnake rework. Cop both tracks below and listen to all the remixes here.
