Everybody is linking to the new Pet Shop Boys video for their new single "I'm With Stupid." I'm totally underwhelmed by this video. The ending is somewhat clever but the Little Britain spiel is overdone and just too cute. Another video everybody is talking about (and for good reason) can be found here.
NewNowNext is pointing to an audio stream of Erasure's new album "Union Street" on the Logo web site. I'm still perplexed that Andy has managed to put out three albums in a little over two years.Two albums with Vince and one solo album. Why the rush?
Okay, I have to admit that I haven't been keeping up with Madonna and her upcoming tour. I did not even log on to Ticketmaster to find tickets. I will see her at Coachella, and that will be plenty. If you can't make it to the festival later this month, you can stream the event in AT&T's Blue Room.
I saw a question about Goldfrapp in yesterday's comments section. I bugged their p.r. rep about what's happening with the band in North America. There is still hope. Apparently, some tour dates are being set up for the summer. Let's see.
On my way back from New York, I listened to Keane's new album "Under The Iron Sea" non stop. It is really, really good in a bittersweet kind of way. It will be available in stores in June. First single will be "Atlantic" (download single only), which is the first track on the album and introduces the grand theme of the record.
Lastly, on a completely non-related note, if you are ever in NYC and looking for nice place to hang out and have some cocktails, go up to the 14th floor bar/balcony at the Ritz Carlton Battery Park. You will have a great view of the Statue Of Liberty while hanging with the rich and glitz. I could have sworn I ran into Shayne Ward who was having drinks with a male companion.
