!! OMG, top rated: Swedish duo Icona Pop !!


Swedish lady-duo Icona Pop — otherwise known as Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo — is basically the newer (better) TATU without all the making out. You might know their song Manners, but it’s this track, Top Rated, that’s on constant replay in my head. The lyrics “Always been top rated/ You think you can change it” makes me want to send all my ex-boyfriends a link as a big ol’ musical eff you.

!! OMG, new band (with !! omgblog !! association) alert: Trust !!


Dark synth duo Trust has been a familiar force on the Toronto after hours circuit for the last several months and have now finally surfaced above the radar with a surprisingly sunny music video for their debut single “Candy Walls”.
We are especially excited for this video because Trust’s male half is none other than our former gig photographer Robert, who braved the glamorous world of pop star mosh pits to capture the likenesses of photogenic females such as Little Boots and Peaches. Turns out he’s quite photogenic himself, which is perhaps why he put down the camera and picked up the microphone. Did he learn a few things about working it on stage from this brief photo blogger stint? Are we rewriting the narrative to give ourselves undue credit in the event they blow up big time? Find out by attending Trust’s upcoming gigs in Austin and New York:
Trust tour dates:
March 15 – Austin, TX @ Elysium (SXSW)
March 17 – Austin, TX @ Stereogum/Sacred Bones/Chaos In Tejas Party @ Beerland (SXSW)
April 20 – New York, NY @ Home Sweet Home (Record release party @ Wierd)
April 22 – Brooklyn, NY @ Coco 66
“Candy Walls” is due out via Brooklyn-based indie imprint Sacred Bones on March 29th. Check out the NSFW record sleeve after the jump!

!! OMGaga, waterworks onstage in Toronto, courtesy of Maria Aragon !!


At about the 6:30 mark, where you see Lady Gaga welling up, that’s when it started. And then at 7:55 I just couldn’t stop myself. I cried. As in actual tears.
Maybe it’s because I skipped my morning can of Dr. Pepper or because my date canceled on me last night, but I got all caught up in Gaga’s emotion and her connection to this little girl — who, if you’ve been under a rock, is Maria Aragon, the 10-year-old Canadian whose cover of Born This Way has already reached 17 million YouTube views. And after Gaga talked to Maria on the radio, she invited the lil’ monster to perform with her on stage in Toronto. And then she did. And then I cried. And here we are.

!! OMG, Britney says don’t stop dancing: ‘Till The World Ends’ !!


Britney says to keep on dancin’ Till The World Ends, and this song is good enough that, hey, I just might — in which case I’ll also hold writer Ke$ha and producer Dr. Luke responsible for my sleep deprivation and extreme weight loss. Actually, come to think of it, does the concept of dancing until Armageddon remind anyone else of this?
