!! OMG, How Dramatic: Susan Boyle Covers the Stones !!


The Susan Boyle wheel just keeps on turning! Britain’s favorite virginal basketcase with a heart of gold (and voice of a moderately talented angel) has just recorded a breathy, tormented and completely over-the-top cover of The Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses– supposedly to be the first single on her new album. Watch your back, Celine Dion, Susan Boyle is coming for you!

!! OMG, RIP: Patrick Swayze !!


I don’t know about you, but I’m getting celebrity dead person fatigue. Pretty soon I’m not going to have any tears left to cry. Thank god there’s still someone out there committed to cutting together Youtube tribute videos cause I don’t think I’ve got the heart anymore.
Anyway, Patrick Swayze has died and it’s very sad. (That still doesn’t excuse headlines like this one.)

!! OMG, finally: new Róisín Murphy music! !!


A lot has happened in the world of Róisín Murphy since we interviewed her a year ago. She parted ways with her record label EMI, got pregnant and recorded a bunch of new songs. Last week she dropped two new tracks during a DJ set in London including the dark and dirty house track “Momma’s Place”, an ode to her unborn child. We are counting down the seconds until its release.
But now that Róisín is a free agent the question is how will she put her music out? Singles? EPs? Albums? PWYC downloads? Earlier this month she wrote on her official message board that her future releases are “not going to be old fashioned. I am looking at ways of getting EVERYTHING revamped at once! Now is the time to be radical and that radical feeling of change is everywhere, including my silly little pop songs.”

!! OMG, They’re Naked: Musicians !!

I was a teenager during the early-ish days of the internet where every weirdo in the world had a homegrown porn site catering to his (or her!) own weird fetishes and interests. Yes, it’s nice to now be living in a Sean Cody world where a million giant pistoning D’s and shaved, pulverized buttholes are just a click away, but I still kinda miss the olden days when internet porn was weird, eclectic and a little bit personal. My new favorite site, WAYNE’S NUDE MUSICIANS totally reminds me of those days. It’s naked guys with musical instruments! Why? Just because! Some of the guys are hot, some are totally busted, some are just bizarre, and there are even naked ladies! But they are all mostly in the proximity of a musical instrument or two.
And yes, apparently Guitar Hero counts as a musical instrument. Click after the jump for some more of the good, the bad and the, um, deeply atonal. (NSFW)

!! OMG, how eclectic: new Wolf J McFarlane mixtape !!

wolf%20j%20mixtape%20cover.jpg
It’s a good thing we attend so many queer hip-hop jams in Toronto, otherwise we may not have ran into Wolf J McFarlane and his crew at Big Primpin’s Hot Mess Summer Blow Out and then caught his performance at Yes Yes Y’All two nights later. Wolf just put out his debut mixtape UpsideDownDay TapeMix, an eclectic blend of R&B, soul, hip-hop, synth pop, backpacker rap, piano solos and Brooklyn indie rock. The man does it all. Our favorite tracks are “Grizzly Bear Pandas”, a wistful rap redux of Grizzly Bear’s “Two Weeks”, and the spaced-out pots n’ pans club jam “Pose Vogue”. Listen to both below:
