The Aikiu's next single, The Red Kiss, has now been pushed back to 2011. Sadcakes. In the meantime, jump all over this dub jawn and pretend you are living on a shoulder padded dance floor in 1983, cause that's what The Magician intends and sees through. Lovely.
BIG TUNE...BIG DUB FIX, courtesy of Vancouver's U-Tern. There's really no reason for you to quit on Mark Ronson & The Business INTL's Bang, Bang, Bang...real talk, it's a top-5 summer song for me, and hopefully you dig it just as much. But if you're feeling a slow disco rub, then jump in on the aforementioned remix below.
In other Ronson news, yes that is an image of Mr. Mark sitting in the stylists chair, because he's just recently gone platinum blonde. I scoped him out down at his Friday night EVR show, and can confirm, he looks equally dapper with the new tow-headed tresses.
In fact, BlackBook thought it was such a "story", that they followed him to the dye chair. Whilst in the midst of being shot for their September issue Martial Vivot, BlackBook's go-to stylist and proprietor of the sophisticated but unstuffy Martial Vivot Salon Pour Hommes salon, suggested Ronson go bleach-blonde at some point. Ronson was keen on the idea, and said he'd make an appointment to get it done when he returned from an upcoming trip, however when Vivot mentioned he could color him right then and there, Mark excitedly consented.
If this is the wave of the future in terms of releasing new material, then let Chairlift's frontwoman, Caroline Polachek, and Violens' member, Jorge Ebrecht, be the professors of your tutelage as to how to successfully make an international pop sensation's video relevant for the underground masses.
Here's what the pair says about their recent collaboration.
"We went on YouYube to find a video among the highest ranks of hits, and came across [Justin Bieber's] Never Let You Go. Went on to make what we call a "sgin"(anagram of the word "sing") - an original song written specifically to synch into someone else's video on mute. Link to video here."
While they had issues loading back up to YouTube, due to using the official video footage of the Bieber tune, I came across this version of it, and hell if it doesn't work to perfection. They've seamlessly woven the vocals to match the pint-sized pop star's oral inflections and I simply can't stop watching it. For all the lyrics of their original, head here, cause you'll want to follow along. "You stupid slut" brings the LOLZ.
Watch the ingeniously-hilarious take now. Free mp3 of their original below as well.
