!! OMG, the impracticalities: Kylie’s ‘Get Outta My Way’ video !!


Usually ‘making of’ videos are a bit wank (as they say), but this 12-minute clip about the filming of Kylie Minogue’s ‘Get Outta My Way’ video is actually somewhat insightful. Not only do we learn about the German engineering that went into the real-time, interactive projections and the story behind the back-up dancers’ spray on tans, we get to watch Kylie get done up like a Christmas turkey and dangle precariously from the precipice of a giant cheese wedge.
Watch the finished video here.

!! OMG, photos: M.I.A. live in Toronto !!

MIALEAD.jpg
We know M.I.A. has the ability to send the media into a Twitter tizzy, but can she still ignite a fan frenzy? During a concert at Toronto’s Sound Academy last night the defiant pop star delivered on the latter with an energetic, 90-minute set spanning her three albums.
Backed by three niqab-clad back-up singers, two b-boys, one hype girl and a DJ — all draped in matching, YouTube-print pajamas — M.I.A. hit the crowd with a wall of industrial-strength beats in the form of “Illygirl”, “Worldtown” and “Steppin’ Up”, three songs indicative of the brash noise of her third album /\/\/\Y/\. Of course she also played the hits, including the first-ever live rendition of recent single “XXXO”. She saved “Paper Planes” and “Boyz” for the encore and invited all the girls on stage to dance along to the finale “10 Dollar”.
Controversy was in short supply, though M.I.A. does like to keep her audience on its toes. She shrugged off her poor record sales of late by telling the crowd, “I don’t give a f*ck if nobody buys my shit! That shit should be free!” Later, she told a fan that groped at her wedding ring to keep away from “my retirement fund”. All the while James, the best-dressed concert photographer in Toronto, battled the corporate media schlubs in the photo pit. Check out the pictures and the rest of M.I.A.’s fall tour dates after the jump!

!! OMG, download the new Azari & III single ‘Indigo’ !!

DSC_6173 CROP.jpg
We’ve been hyping house act Azari & III for more than a year now and are happy to report that their profile among taste-making DJs, remixers, gay bloggers and not-so-gay bloggers is continuing to rise steadily.
Earlier this year they scored an underground hit with the infectious ’90s-style dance-pop throwback “Reckless (For Your Love)”, and for the follow-up single “Indigo” they get even deeper with silky-smooth dissonant wailing that borderlines total vocal meltdown. The track is Azari & III’s first release on their new label Turbo Recordings and offers a taste of what we can expect on their self-titled debut LP, due early next year.
