Album Review: Girls Volume 1 Soundtrack

In: Matt, Music, TV Shows

One of our most favorite shows returns to HBO this Sunday and I could NOT be more excited. To coincide with the beginning of its second season, Girls has released a soundtrack compilation filled with songs from the most memorable moments of season one, and a few sneak peaks into season two. The album is an eclectic mix that is perfectly reflective of the show itself.

The album opens up with one of my favorite songs, and best moments of season one. Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” was the perfect song choice for Hannah and Marnie’s dance break after Hannah learns her ex-boyfriend Elijah (Andrew Rannelis) is gay. An amazing scene and probably where I started to fall in love with the show. Next up is a new song from the band fun. which will appear in season two.

My Top 11 Music Videos of 2011

In: Music, Nic, Videos

I AM A MUSIC VIDEO ADDICT. I’m the first one to view it, first one to post it, and what’s better than seeing visuals to a song that make you love the song even more than you thought was possible. It was a big year for highly visual music videos and I have no lack of material to add to this list. This is MY list and if you disagree then comment below and tell me what your favourites were this year.

11. Kanye West & Jay-Z, “Otis”

Two Words: Mercedes Maybach

Watch Katy Perry’s SNL Promos

In: TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

This Saturday, Katy Perry is set to host SNL. While some musicians who have hosted the live show before opt to also play musical guest, Katy bowed out and is letting Homorazzi favorite Robyn take the stage. Only fitting seeing as the two toured together on her Teenage Dreams tour.

Katy has been having quite the banner year so why not wrap it all up in a bow by hosting SNL. We know Katy can be funny. We saw her comedy fashion when she donned a low cut Elmo t-shirt and bounced her boobs around with Amy Poehler and Maya Rudolph. But, can she handle the roll of host?

In four new promos for this weekend’s gig, Katy teams up with Kenan Thompson to garner some viewers. While these promos are never amazing, Katy definitely appears more humorous than Thompson and even does an uncanny impression of her husband, Russell Brand. Watch all four promos back-to-back below.

Erato Covers Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend”

In: Music, Tyrell, Videos

Wow wow wow. I have to admit, I impress pretty easy but it takes a lot to blow me away. This would be one of those times where I am. The girls above are Erato and they’re a girl vocal group from Sweden. These gals have the most amazing voices and blend so well together. However, a video of three of the members is making some serious rounds on the internet causing them to go absolutely viral.

Members Ebba Lovisa Andersson, Amanda Wikström and Petra Brohäll take Robyn’s Call Your Girlfriend to a whole other level when they blend in some of the best three part harmony I’ve ever heard while playing the cup game to keep rhythm throughout the entire performance. I wonder how long it took them to synchronize the cups all together?

I watched this video with Patrick last night and I was amazed by these ladies. This is what singing is all about. Now, I want to hear more from them. Robyn watched the video and retweeted it with a “High five.” You’ll see why when you watch the video. Check it out below.

Do you ever wonder what goes on backstage at one of your favorite pop superstar mega arena tours? You know there has to be some crazy antics and an all out good time going on. Well, thankfully, Katy Perry’s has given us a little taste of what life was like on the road during her East Coast leg of her California Dreams Tour with opening act, Robyn.

In the video, we see Katy backstage with her dancers, primping for the show, meet and greets with fans and a cute interview with Robyn explaining how Katy truly understands the teenage dream the young girls live for in America. I also love the little cameo of Kathy Beth Terry near the end. Absolutely hilarious. Watch this video and join me as we all wish we could be the lucky people dancing with Robyn at the end.

As if the original wasn’t hot enough, now we’re treated to a sexy new remix. AMEN. When I first heard Rye Rye and Robyn duet on “Never Will Be Mine“, I was instantly hooked and it landed on my heavy rotation iTunes playlist right away. I loved how Rye Rye gave an urban twist on Robyn’s pop hit “Be Mine”. I love me some hip hop swagger.

Now the track is getting ready to hit clubs by storm. The wicked duet received the remix treatment by rising musical genius Kat Krazy. His unique remixing style has made him a popular choice by Mike Posner, Nicole Scherzinger and Far East Movement. His ability to take any track to the dance floor while maintaining its mainstream appeal has made him stand out and in demand.

The remixed track is available digitally today on iTunes and Amazon. Watch the remixed video below.

Oh man do I have a little bit of a $h!t mix for you. There is really no rhyme or reason to this li’l group of ditties today, but they’re all representing the sun coming out, cruising in a car with the window open on the way to the beach, and coming home sunburned and lazy. Wait, did I just describe the last couple weeks of my life? I THINK SO! Got a wicked British pop star, an American hip-hop chica, and an Australian group I have fond mem’z of.

1. Zombie – Natalia Kills

Do you know Natalia. Wait. What? You don’t. YOU SHOULD! Kills’ debut album Perfectionist is a dirty pop dream, you know, the sweaty kind where you wake up breathing hard. And she WILL blow up in North America soon enough, so climb on the Kills train. She’s opened for Kelis, and for Robyn in their UK tours, and is opening for Ke$ha on her UK leg. She’s sexy and trashy as hell and her music is unbubbled British pop to the core. Although some of her other singles which you should youtube immedatement are a little more catchy, the combo of this video and song together gets my goat. Fact: I am a zombie movie fanatic. This video makes you feel like you’re watching something pirated you may get arrested for watching, and the slick down beats keep me wantin’ more Natalia.

Looks like Robyn won’t be “Dancing On Her Own” anymore. She’s found a girlfriend to get her groove on, rapper Rye Rye. The M.I.A. protege and her show off some serious bright rompers and loud-printed outfits for their new music video. The second I heard this collaboration, I couldn’t wait to see the video. And the video for “Never Will Be Mine” doesn’t disappoint, it’s the perfect visual for the upcoming sunny summer days.

As you know, I love me some Robyn and one of my favorite tracks from her “Robyn” album was “Be Mine“. Rye Rye has used the catchy hook and slowed it down and given her own interpretation for the track. The result is a perfect fusion of pop and hip-hop. It’s the ultimate cool treat on those hot summer days. I have no doubt “Never Will Be Mine” will be a huge hit for the two ladies. Hopefully, they’ll get some decent mainstream radio play from it as well.

Tim Nackashi directed the two ladies on the streets of Los Angeles. It’s simple, but captures the cool essence of the two ladies. Rye Rye reminds of a rapping Fantasia. As mentioned earlier, the two sport some pretty funky outfits. It’s like they were trying to out-do each other. Speaking of wardrobes. Robyn is once again sporting a cropped bomber jacket. She certainly loves that look doesn’t she. Check out the video below.
