Mr. Fogg - Answerphone (new video!)

One man. One song. One video. That's the idea behind Mr. Fogg's brand new clip for Answerphone, from his stunning debut, Moving Parts. Without giving anything away, a bit of back story: Fogg came up with the concept and was told that something like this would cost mad bills, so he ended up ignoring everybody's advice and doing most of it himself. It was done totally live, one shot, with no tricks or cheating. Stick through the first 30 seconds and all will become clear. I am infatuated.

Mr. Fogg - Stung (Dekker & Johan Vocal Mix)


Playing on his natural ability to combine light and dreamy aesthetics with sinister and dark undertones, Mr. Fogg's newest single, Stung, portrays the unique artist at his true genre-defying best. The latest song to be offered from his smashing debut, Moving Parts, this "secret weapon in [Mr.] Fogg's arsenal" will see a proper release on August 9.



Having already had a great year for single releases, including Keep Your Teeth Sharp in January and the second single, Moving Parts, which featured the huge, crossover Jakwob remix, Mr. F now hits us with a creepier cut that chills us and thrills us all in the same breath. Remixes on the package come from two equally hot up-and-comers, with Ital Tek going for a high-paced skippy work-out complementing Jeuce’s sharp dubstep mix.


And of course we have a freebie for ya. Johan & Dekker's vocal mix takes Stung straight to a 3am dance-floor, and we're aced with the resulting long player. Grab it after you brush up on Fogg's upcoming Euro-dates, which you should probably make a habit of hitting.

Marina and The Diamonds: 2 NYC Shows and New Remix from Mr. Fogg

After reviewing Marina and the Diamonds' debut album, The Family Jewels, we were left slightly scratching heads. After a number of repeated listens, we still stand by the fact that the good songs are, in fact, really well done...and the others, well, we'll leave them by the wayside. We do have to admit that Oh No! is starting to grow on us a bit more each day.


With a handful of March shows here in the States, we're excited to forget about the recorded versions of Marina's tracks...because we've long been waiting to catch the velvet-voiced lass live. Kicking off her stint here with 2 shows in New York, she then hits SXSW where she's got 3 showcases lined up. Info on the NYC gigs are as below.

March 14 - The Bell House
Adv: $12 Doors: $15


March 15 - le poisson rouge
Adv: $13 Doors: $15


Additionally, we've just been gifted a sensational remix of Marina's Hollywood. The fix is done by our buddy, Mr. Fogg, and transforms the originally upbeat jaunt into an ethereally orchestral stroll through vocaled roads. We dig it!

The Fantastic Mr. Fogg

With a crisp voice that gives us the best kind of chills, Mr. Fogg is busy prepping and promoting the release of his debut album, Moving Parts, later in April. Preceded by his stunning Keep Your Teeth Sharp EP, which came out earlier this month, this Berkshire-boy knows the true meaning of creating poignant pop music with a wash of emotions.


Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to pick the brain of one of modern music's imminent talents. Read on for our discussions on his musical influences and upbringings, as well as an illegal performance out on the west coast.


SB: So glad you had the time to talk. I'm a big fan of your music!

MF: Thank you, it's great to hear that.

SB: How long are you in the States for?

MF: Just a few more days. I actually came here to shoot the video for the next single [Moving Parts], which goes with the album in April. It was with Tony Kaye, who directed American History X. Such an interesting guy. We were actually in LA....I think we were there for about 5 days.
