!! OMG, a Q&A with Vince Clarke of Erasure !!

A little while ago we had the pleasure of interviewing Vince Clarke, the pop music master behind Depeche Mode’s first album, Yazoo, The Assembly and of course, Erasure, the synth pop duo he formed with singer Andy Bell in 1985.

On October 11th, they will release their 14th studio album, Tomorrow’s World, which expands their streamlined, hooky romantic pop sound into something more epic in scope. We chatted to Clarke about entrusting Erasure’s sound to 25-year-old producer Frankmusik, the secret to their longevity and his favorite pop star at the moment. Read the Q&A after the jump!

!! OMG, how melancholy: The Drums’ ‘How It Ended’ video !!


The only thing better than a happy pop song is a sad one. Super cute indie pop group The Drums seem to have come to this realization as their latest long player, Portamento, is full of longing, confusion, sexual frustration and… well what else is there to write a song about, really? (Certainly not getting shitfaced in a Patron-soaked nightclub where you and all your best friends are having the greatest night of your lives surrounded by celebrities, acrobats and the hottest people on the face of the earth. That never happens.)
Anyway, in the music video for “How It Ended,” gently windblown singer Jonathan Pierce wanders a drab looking cityscape (London?) indulging his autumnal mood and asking himself how it all ended. Let’s join him…

!! OMG, ouch: Falling down an escalator !!


There comes a time in every mall shopper’s life when you’re on your way from Banana Republic to Sephora and you think, “Oh god, I hope I don’t eat it on the escalator” — or worse, “I hope my shoelaces don’t get caught and drag my foot under the track.” For their new video for “My Machines,” the band Battles realized this fear by throwing a stuntman down an escalator for the duration of the song. He probably needed to head to Sephora anyway after it was over to cover all those bruises.
