!! OMG, Róisín Murphy soundtracks (and stars in) trippy-ass fashion film !!


The last time we heard from Róisín Murphy she was riding a dancehall beat for Toddla T. Now, the Irish pop star is delving even deeper into the world music sound (and vision) in a new fashion film for Flemish milliner Christophe Coppens‘ spring/summer 2012 collection. The psychedelic short, entitled “Women of the Fields,” stars Murphy and features a new song called “Cré Ni A Forna” that is heavy on chanting, tribal rhythms and clanging percussion. An indication of things to come or an experimental one-off? The star has been silent on her social media feeds lately, so here’s hoping she’s hunkering down to complete the follow-up to 2007’s Overpowered album.

!! OMG, boy can sing: Jim Carrey !!


I just figured out how Jim Carrey is going to revive his career after “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” — a musical! Here Carrey proves he’s got a set of lungs after he wandered into a Lower East Side bar in New York and covered Radiohead’s “Creep.” It’s actually good.

!! OMG, Kate Bush to release new album: “50 Words For Snow” !!

Summer can’t end fast enough. Bright and early this morning Kate Bush announced the release of 50 Words For Snow, her second album of the year and 10th overall.
During interviews to promote Director’s Cut (a collection of reworked songs from The Red Shoes and The Sensual World) back in May, the influential British singer said she was hard at work on an LP of original material that she hoped to release sooner than later. She has now made good on that promise in unusually timely fashion: 50 Words For Snow will come out on November 21 on her own Fish People label.
According to a press release, the album features 65-minutes of original music “set against a background of falling snow.” And, as you can see, the cover image is of a woman making out with a snowman (yes!).
Here is the tracklisting:
SNOWFLAKE
LAKE TAHOE
MISTY
WILDMAN
SNOWED IN AT WHEELER STREET
50 WORDS FOR SNOW
AMONG ANGELS
