Ready to get rowdy? Strike that...we're a little more subdued than normal today, thanks to a smack of soothing tunes coursing through our headphones right now.




Regardless...we've got some o' the bits, just like any ol' day.

Kate Miller-Heidke Announces Tour Dates

Classically-trained Australian singer, Kate Miller-Heidke has been a recent addition to many of my repeated "songs to spin when I'm feeling down" playlist.

Opening for Ben Folds, as well as playing a handful of the current Lilith Fair dates, Kate is set to rock the States with her intriguing blend of charismatic pop tunes.

Beastly Bits #46

Hey rain...give us a break won't you? I know, I know springtime showers are inevitable, but I'm tired of sittingin soggy legged pants at work. Also, being stuck on the subway for an hour between stations? That was a nice touch. //end of rant now.


No more complaining. I've already had two minor victories since sitting down to the computer, so I'm gonna ride the upwave and hope that the rest of the day turns out just as well. C'mon get happy!


Like you really thought I wouldn't post that new Nicki Minaj jam. Massive Attack is her official debut single, featuring Sean Garrett. Music video to be revealed soon. Additionally, grab her free Harajuku R&Barbie Mixtape here.


NME's got the The Libertines first comeback interview for Reading and Leeds Festivals. Watch the video here and God help us, but this makes me really excited.

More Penguin Prison love in the form of Starsmith's remix of The Worse it Gets. Wonderful fix yet again. Cop the double A-side here.

Directed by Nash Edgerton and starring Australian actress Teresa Palmer, the new video for Empire Of The Sun's Half Mast shows the classic "we break up, then we make up" romance style. Watch at this link.


You better believe I was in the mood for some Trick Daddy this morning. The White Panda must have sensed it too, because they sent over their new mash with the thugster and Pet Shop Boys. Say what? WHAT and it works.
