!! OMG, music video round-up: Peaches does Dorothy, Finland does Gaga, The Temper Trap get cute, Estelle & Kardi reunite !!


The first item in this week’s round-up of must-see music videos comes from mustachioed Ssion mastermind Cody Critcheloe. It’s a revisionist take on The Wizard of Oz for Peaches and it co-stars former Yo Majesty emcee Shunda K. If you are a female rap aficionado and a close personal friend of Dorothy, then this is the moment you have been waiting for.

The handful of programmers that still air music videos on television should pull the original “Bad Romance” video out of rotation and replace it with this epic performance from the Finnish TV show Battle of the Choirs. (Via Popjustice)
More videos after the jump!

!! OMG, She Gets Ready: Courtney Love !!


Courtney Love can always be counted on for an entertaining ramble! Here she talks about her makeup, her “sick” vintage dealer, making ruffles out of Kurt’s old shirts, and offers her help to Ke$ha.
Of course, the most interesting part of the whole thing is the fact that the folks at Nylon TV have chosen to use the song Baseball Bat in the background. Students of 90’s indie/ladymusic effluvia will instantly recognize Baseball Bat as the work of Courtney Love the band— a band that Courtney Love the person (real name: Courtney Michelle Harrison) was never in. Did Nylon just get confused or are they purposely trying to piss Courtney off? If it’s the latter, they’re some brave f*ckers over there. Considering the fact that she’s scarier than Charles Manson and has more black magic at her command than Stevie Nicks, I personally would try to stay on her good side.

!! OMG, one to (weight) watch: Hard Ton !!

sleeve_Gigolo265_Hard Ton_promotion_800x800 72dpi.jpg
Italian disco diva Hard Ton is hard to miss for a few reasons. Firstly, the cover of his Gigolo Records debut EP Selfish is an homage to Grace Jones’ Island Life arabesque album art. Every time I look at it I’m… speechless. Secondly, he’s got the voice of Sylvester and the body of Martha Wash. Thirdly, his Chicago-house sound is spot on and really, really gay.
What’s not immediately apparent (but somehow makes sense) is that he’s spent the past 15 years singing in metal bands and one of his musical heroes is Judas Priest front man Rob Halford. Also, he recorded the three tracks on Selfish using strictly analogue and vintage gear. To sample what Hard Ton has to offer, check the video for “Earthquake” below.
