The Virgins x Little Boots

Little Boots covering The Virgins produced by Lord Skywave, Simon Lord of The Black Ghosts and Simian. This is quite an indie-tastic collaboration, in theory this track should be awesome but it just falls short, it is lacking something. Either way I still heart Little Boots.

Apparently this track was too dancey and was rejected by the band. Too bangertastic. Blog-haus!

The Virgins – Murder

The Virgins just released their self-titled album at the beginning of the month and it is totally different than their ’07 EP. This is a polished pop album that Hall & Oates would be proud of. The album reminds me of a sunnier and poppier version of Cazals with lyrics about rich upper east side girls. They reworked and tweaked all the songs from their EP that appear on the LP, like “Rich Girls” which sounds so polished and pop and “Love is Colder Than Death” has completely new instrumentation with saxophone taking the main role. Rock and roll is on its way back.

“Murder” is a funky 80s tune with vocals that sound so much like Elvis Costello especially during the hooky chorus. I love the wah-wah guitar. Everything is so perfect and pop!! I love it!

Gossip Girl plays good music.

So my brother told me that Gossip Girl used Sebastien Tellier’s La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan’s Mix), in last nights epsiode “Blair Waldorf must Pie!”. I was very impressed to hear that and am now intrigued to watch the show since the music director, Alexandra Patsavas was also the music director for The OC. One my fav shows. The first 2 seasons were golden. Last week Gossip Girls used The Virgins throughout the episode furthering their indie cred.

List of every song played on The OC

Do you all remember this song when Ryan sneaks out to sleep with Theresa?
Interpol – The Specialist

Dirty, Sexy, Money is another show I should start watching since my love of my life, Samaire Armstrong is in it. They also played a great track a few episodes ago according to my brother. So many television shows to start watching since Weeds and Curb Your Enthusiasm are done for this season or even forever?!?

The Virgins & Poney Poney

The Virgins are your typical downtown hipster band backed by aNYthing, a uber urban hip clothing company with street cred. The Virgins not only have street cred but art world cred, being friends with Ryan McGinley a photographer whose has gained much attention in the art community as well as being friends with Dash Snow, a NYC graffiti artist who is part of the famous oil tycoon family, the De Menils who founded the Rothko Chapel.

That aside The Virgins are way too hip and write way catchy pop songs songs. It is no surprise that WB’s Gossip Girl decided to play their entire EP in one of their episodes. Oh yeah one of their first shows was opening for Patti Smith in Paris. These guys have it made and are going to blow up.

Paris is the hip center of the world right now and here is a band that has been endorsed by the new ambassadors of dance, JUS†ICE. Poney Poney are a pop rock band that have that rough indie garage rock sound with that French pop sensibilty like Phoenix. Xavier from Justice produced a few tracks of theirs which should be interesting to hear once their surface.

The vox on this track remind me of Phoenix
