With all the buzz about the one-album-only concept surrounding their upcoming release of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, it’s not surprising A Better Tomorrow, their twentieth anniversary album, would […]


French electropop princess Yelle is back, which is music to our ears. It’s been more than 3 years since her “Safari Disco Club” and “Que veux-tu” Two-In-One Mini-film, so the time is about right. Last week she released the single “Complètement Fou” that is well, complètement fou.

A true groundbreaker in the world of electronic/intelligent dance music in a way that has […]


In further support of Ariel Pink’s recently released “Put Your Number in My Phone” single comes the self-aware, slightly bizarre music video directed by Grant Singer.
