If you’re a regular Pop Bitez visitor you already know quite a bit about one of our current favorite indie bands, IAMDYNAMITE. We actually spoke with the guys back in September of last year, if you missed it you can check it here.
Well, after several delays and schedule changes, we’re happy to report the band’s debut album, SUPERMEGAFANTASTIC, is FINALLYAVAILABLE!
If you ask us the timing could not be more perfect! This high energy album really sounds like it was made for summer parties by the pool! That being said, it’s our opinion this new release should probably come with the disclaimer, WARNING: This album could get you into a lot of trouble given the right situation, (or the wrong one as the case may be!)
The band is currently touring the U.S. and if you dig the disc you are absolutely going to love them LIVE, for tour dates be sure to check out their website, IAMDYNAMITE.COM
The guys recently released this new video for their hell raising tune, “Where Will We Go?” It’s a nice “day in the life” overview of one of the hottest up and coming bands of 2012, enjoy!
Yes, she’s the spawn of Elvis, and yes, the children of mega stars rarely live up to the linage or hype, blah, blah, blah. Alright, are we over it now, ya got it out of your system? Good. May we continue?
For those that still watch American Idol, (I don’t, I’d rather have a root canal with a rusty drill than ever watch another minute of “The Ugly American Hour”), some of you apparently saw Lisa Marie perform this tune a few months back. I, of course missed it, so this one’s new to me (and that’s all that really counts here on Pop Bitez.)
The truth is, I wrote “The King’s” daughter off years ago when she married the bleached freak with the spangly glove and then grossed out the world with what was easily the most uncomfortable kiss in television history on the Grammy Awards. She didn’t fair a whole lot better in the tabloid world when, after her SHOCK(!) divorce from the pedo-popper, she said “I Do” to Nicolas Cage, the second strangest person on the planet. After another SHOCK (!) divorce I half expected she’d be marrying someone like Phil Spector next, but apparently, at least for now, Ms. Presley has taken a break from all of that ugly noise and delivered something pretty sexy and cool with her new album, Storm & Grace.
Rolling Stone described the new release as “The album she was born to make…” and I can’t argue with that assessment, for once I believe they’re dead on. Of course, it’s hard to go wrong these days when you’ve got the legendary T Bone Burnett at the wheel.
Here’s the first single/ video from Lisa Marie Presley’s Storm & Grace, “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet“, expect to be hearing it playing over the closing credits of HBO’s True Blood this season, (wouldn’t surprise me if it was on the premiere episode June 10th)
Taking a page from the Johnny Cash playbook, (IE: “Hurt“), Tom Jones gives us a surprisingly subtle and understated cover of the Leonard Cohen classic “Tower of Song“.
We have to admit, after hearing several covers of this Cohen gem, this one is our new definitive.
The track is from Jone’s excellent new album Spirit in the Room, out in the U.K. this week and coming to the states on 6/5/2012, we highly recommend you check it out when you get the chance, it’s already on our list of Top 25 albums of 2012!
We’ve been playing this one in the office all week and, yes, there’s been a lot of booty shaking as a result. Get ready to get your disco freak on!
I don’t know Popsters, this actually may be the greatest music video I’ve ever seen imported from a galaxy far, far away!
Hot Problems “Party with My Friends” might not make it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 any time soon but it is definitely destined for major viral fame, the force is strong with these guys!
Sir Paul McCartney released his new video this week for the single, “My Valentine“, from his latest album “Kisses On The Bottom“, (the album title refers to the Xs at the bottom of a love letter but you wouldn’t be wrong to giggle, I’m almost certain Sir Paul did when he came up with this one, the randy old bugger).
For those that don’t already know, McCartney’s latest collection of silly love songs is a tribute to the legendary crooners and songwriters of yesterday and features a wide variety of popular and dusty standards, as well as a few new originals.
The video, directed by the forever Beatle himself, features the delectable Natalie Portman and Johnny “I’m one quarter Cherokee” Depp, (obviously in his “Tonto Zone” for the Lone Ranger remake currently in production.)
Our pick for video of the week this time around will definitely be a head-scratcher for some but, if you’re a true David Lynch fan, it’s going to be a blissful 7 minutes and six seconds!
Crazy Clown Time is the title track for Lynch’s latest release and is available through all the usual digital outlets.
It’s disturbing, it’s hypnotic, it’s 100 percent David Lynch! Enjoy….(if that’s the word.)
