STARSHIPS WERE MEANT TO FLY, HANDS UP AND TOUCH THE SKY

New music from Nicki Minaj!!
Wow, I completely forgot about this song, and it's pretty kick-ass. Starships was released about 2 weeks ago, and it's making me want to see Nicki Minaj live even more now! I can't wait until she comes to Tokyo!

IT'S NOT EVEN MY BIRTHDAY BUT HE WANNA LICK THE ICING OFF

Couldn't post at all last week, as I was on a trip and had no internet on my laptop. But here's a belated birthday song, since my birthday was last tuesday! ha
Who doesn't love Rihanna? Here's Birthday Cake.

SLIIMY COVERS LANA DEL REY

Sliimy, who happens to be one of my favorite french artists (and also my big brother!), has just released a cover of Blue Jeans by Lana Del Rey! I love this man's voice. 

THE VACCINES AND HOWLER DO TOKYO

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the The Vaccines' show, who were joined by Minnesotan band, Howler. Truth is, I basically went to that show to see Howler play Back of Your Neck (which I had previously blogged about) and it was amazing! The Vaccines were also great, although a bit too drunk, but I'd say that made the show even better.





PS- The Vaccines announced at their show last night that they will be returning to Tokyo in August for Summer Sonic 2012
UPDATE: As I had previously stated, The Vaccines will be back for Summer Sonic, and now word is Howler will be back for Fuji Rock Festival. I'm very excited for both.

HOSTESS CLUB WEEKENDER 2012 - TOKYO'S INDIE FESTIVAL

The lineup for the first day, February 18, consists of:

And as for the second day, February 19, the lineup is:

YES, that's right. TORO-Y-FUCKING-MOI. So sad I'm missing this. 






And as for the tickets for Saturday's show, if any of the bands is willing to give me a ticket so I can blog about the show later, please feel free to contact me at sala2122@gmail.com 
Free shows are what make this blog! 

UPDATE: I have already been contacted and have tickets for tomorrow's show. Thanks for the help!

I JUST WANT TO THROW MY PHONE AWAY, FIND OUT WHO IS REALLY THERE FOR ME

songs!

BORN TO DIE GUCCI VUMP REMIX

Three words: YES, and YES.
Love this remix of Lana Del Rey's Born To Die by Gucci Vump!

WON'T SOMEONE TELL ME AFTER ALL, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FIREFLIES OF MONTREAL?

"But I've heard from encounters with the past
That creatures gentle glowing never last"

I found this song on Tumblr a few months ago, and just realized I hadn't posted it on this website. Laurena has the most beautiful voice and the lyrics to this song is amazing! Enjoy Fireflies of Montreal.

WE COULD LET THIS LOVE BE THE FADING SKY, WE COULD DRIFT ALL NIGHT UNTIL THE NEW SUNRISE

A few months ago someone who used to mean the world to me sent me this song, and I just found it on my history last night. Here's to moving on, and remembering the good times, because you can't avoid someone forever. This is Free by Donavon Frankenreiter and Jack Johnson.

LIKE A FATHER TO IMPRESS, LIKE A MOTHER'S DRESS, IF YOU MAKE A MESS, I'LL DO ANYTHING FOR YOU

Excuse me for swearing, but I can't fucking believe I'd never posted a Sulfan Stevens song on this blog before. That man changed my life for good. Apart from Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage (The OC), HE is one of the reasons why I started this blog; I basically grew up listening to his magic. Here's For The Widows In Paradise; For The Fatherless In Ypsilanti from Johnny's funeral, in case you were wondering.

GIVE ME ALL YOUR LOVE - MADONNA FEAT. LMFAO REMIX

It'd been a while since I last posted a remix, since I don't spend as much time listening to them anymore, but here's a great one that I just found on YouTube.
This remix was done by Music RNB and it's Madonna's Give Me All Your Love featuring LMFAO, Nicki Minaj, and M.I.A.

PEOPLE ACT SHAMELESS TRYNA LIVE LIKE ENTERTAINERS

Get ready for this: Dizzle Rascal and the one and only Florence and the Machine. Now, THAT is something. Who would've guessed they'd sound so good together?
Here's You've Got The Dirtee Love. The song is about 2 years old, but I just heard it for the first time today!


PS- I've got a funny story about Florence and the Machine, which I will try to post tomorrow. :)

I WILL REMEMBER YOUR FACE, BECAUSE I'M STILL IN LOVE WITH THAT PLACE

I found Benjamin Francis Leftwich on Tumblr last week, and have been practically playing him non stop ever since. His voice makes me want to stay in bed forever, while drinking a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. Yes, that is definitely a compliment. The first song is called Atlas Hands, and the second one is Box of Stones.
If only it was raining outside, this post would be 39023 times more magical.


PS. Anyone know if this man is single? I don't care (and don't know) what he looks like, I would love to fall asleep to him singing to me every single night for the rest of my life.

INTRODUCING... THE FORMAT

After years of using Jango, one of my friends finally convinced me to start using Last.fm instead. I've only been using it for about half an hour, and I already found a great band: The Format! After doing a bit of research on them, I found out that the band split up in 2008, the singer, Sam Means, went solo, and the guitarist, Nate Ruess, is now a part of one of the most amazing bands, Fun.
Anyway, here's Time Bomb by The Format.

INTRODUCING... HOWLER

I just stumbled upon Back Of Your Neck by Howler, and thought it was amazing! Love this guy's voice, can't wait until they come to Tokyo later this month!
