This Week In Music: Chromeo’s “Come Alive” feat. Toro y Moi Music Video

come alive

Chromeo is back with some new music this year, starting with their new single “Come Alive” featuring Toro y Moi, a song from their upcoming album White Women.

The song features the standard funky synth chords that define Chromeo’s style. It’s a medium tempo dance tune that will most definitely make you let loose a bit after a long day at work.

I’m sure that’s exactly what they were going for.

For those of you who are familiar with Chromeo’s music videos, this one will come as no surprise to you. The “Come Alive” music video features sexy female mannequins that come to life.

At the beginning of the video, Dave 1 is waiting for what I would assume is his date for the night. He sits on the front of his car with a bouquet of roses, and when he gets a text message saying that his date can’t make it, he throws the flowers to the ground.

It’s a very dramatic moment. The fatal throw of those innocent flowers really hit home.

A few seconds later he is lured into a boutique by a store mannequin where Toro y Moi is the janitor, and P-Thugg is the security guard.

I won’t spoil it for you, but let’s just say that Dave 1 and Toro y Moi get a little bit too frisky with those mannequins. Thinking about it too much will make it seem really creepy. Just try to laugh about it!

come alive

The dancing was electro-funk perfection, as is the song in its entirety.

My only complaint is Toro y Moi’s hair. What is going on with that? Please cut it shorter!

Enjoy the music video!

Things That Happened on ‘Miley Unplugged’

miley unplugged

Last night Miley Cyrus took over MTV for an hour to perform for the series MTV Unplugged.

It wasn’t as outrageous as it could have been, but maybe that’s because she’s already done enough craziness on MTV for the VMAs.

As the promo art for the show suggested, the acoustic performances of songs from Bangerz would be country themed.

@MTV PRESENTS MILEY CYRUS: MTV UNPLUGGED YALL ❤️❤️❤️ check it out January 29th! 🐷

A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

She went all out. Really. Red and white checkered onesie, cowboy hat and all!

I will admit that the first outfit was very cute.

In the audience, some familiar faces popped up on screen, including Youtubers Tyler Oakley, Connor Franta and Ricky Dillon. Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus were also present.

Here’s a list of totally Miley things that happened during the performance:

– During “Do My Thang”: Miley grinded her booty on the horse. I feel bad for the two people in that costume.

– During “#GetItRight”: Miley upgrades to full on twerking on the horse, spanking the rear portion of the horse, and finally (and most unfortunately) she gets on top of the horse and rides it inappropriately.

– During “SMS (Bangerz)”: For some reason she kept tapping her lady junk during this number.

– During “Don’t Tell Me”/”We Can’t Stop”: Madonna joined Miley for this one, and ended up grinding with her and getting spanked by her. Well.

I will admit that I very much enjoyed her performance of “Rooting For My Baby.” She actually calmed the heck down for a good four minutes to pour her heart into that song.

Hope you all enjoyed ‘Miley Unplugged,’ and for those going to see her in concert this spring, have fun!

56th Grammy Award Show

grammys

Last night’s Grammy award show was full of amazing performances. Our favorite artists came together to dance the night away as their fellow musicians performed the songs we love live. From Beyonce’s sexy opening all the way to Pharrell’s ridiculous idea of a hat accessory, some of the biggest award show moments happened last night at the Grammy’s.

Here is a list of the best, must-see performances:

“Drunk in Love,” Beyonce ft. Jay-Z: Beyonce worked that chair! The ending of the number was so cute as the couple stood back to back on stage.

“Royals,” Lorde: This girl ruled the stage last night! I loved the intro arrangement for the song. So amazing!

“Dark Horse,” Katy Perry ft. Juicy J: Very unexpected performance featuring Halloween themed get-up. I loved the way Katy Perry and the other two dancers swung on the poles in unison as Juicy J rapped his verse.

“All Too Well,” Taylor Swift: I love how she still managed to flip her hair back and forth while sitting at the piano. (She may have over done it, though). Such a beautiful song and performance.

“Radioactive” with “M.A.A.D. City,” Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar: No words. Can explain. The amount. Of awesome.

“Get Lucky,” Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and Stevie Wonder: Only Daft Punk could make so much magic happen in one night.

And I can’t tell which was more hilarious: Pharrell’s hat or Yoko’s dance moves.

Album Review: Young the Giant’s ‘Mind Over Matter’

Mind Over Matter

Alternative band Young the Giant is back with a new album titled Mind Over Matter, which was released on January 21st, 2014.

“This record is kind of like chronicling our battles in the last couple of years,” says Sameer Gadhia in the “Young the Giant: The Making Of Mind Over Matter” video.

Said battles can be heard loud and clear on this album, with its bittersweet and triumphant sounding instrumentals. Coupled with Gadhia’s vocals, which have very distinct story-telling quality to them, Mind Over Matter easily becomes an album to fall in love with.

The intro to the album is a 48 second track titled “Slow Dive” which features a beautiful crescendo of soft violins and bell sounding instruments.

It’s About Time” and “Crystallized” are currently the two singles on the album. While “Crystallized” is very somber with slow guitar, piano, and synth melodies, “It’s About Time” is very loud, fast paced, and danceable with strong electric guitar and drum beats.

“Teachers” is another fast paced song on the album with similar qualities to “It’s About Time.”

“Firelight,” “Camera,” “Waves,” and “Paralysis” are the tear inducing ballads on this album. “Camera” is particularly interesting because of the abrupt beat change at around 1:20.

The tracks I loved the most on this album were the ones with striking lyrics, those being “Anagram,” “Mind Over Matter,” “Daydreamer,” “In My Home” and “Eros.”

The chorus in “Anagram” is simply genius. The song is about a guy who just wishes he could figure out the meaning of his relationship with the person who’s playing games with his heart. The first part of the chorus goes,

Anagram
I’m just a messenger man
It’s the last time around
One of these days I wish you were
A hologram […]

It’s as if the relationship itself is a scrambled word play that he can’t figure out. Even though this seems like something one would be upset about, the medium tempo of the chorus makes it sound playful, adding to the anagram word play aspect of the song.

“Mind Over Matter,” the song the album is named after, is my absolute favorite on the album. I love the second half of the chorus where Gadhia sings “And when the seasons change / Will you stand by me? /’Cause I’m a young man built to fall.” After that last line he let’s out a beautiful falsetto “oooh,” which makes my heart melt with all the vulnerability packed in this one song.

“Eros,” which I would assume is named after the Greek god of love, is filled with vivid imagery, my favorite being the line “I want to dance, and I’m not dancing alone.”

“In My Home,” comes across as a powerful anthem, especially where Gadhia sings “Well, I know I was born for this / Every night I dreamt of it.” The song is a wonderful rendition of self-realization and empowerment.

And the last of my favorites, “Daydreamer” I love for two reasons, one being that I am the biggest daydreamer and the second the song’s heartfelt lyrics. “For you I would steal time,” is the one line of the song that resonates with me.

I thoroughly enjoyed Mind Over Matter. It’s melodies are very soft and soothing, give or take a few tracks. There’s something very relatable about this album, which can potentially draw a lot of listeners to it.

2014 People’s Choice Awards

2014-01-09_09-53-46-1

Last night, TV stars, movie stars and artists gathered at the Nokia Theatre to celebrate the best in entertainment, all decided on by the people, of course.

Hosts for the evening were Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs from Two Broke Girls. They both looked fabulous and did an amazing job.

The intro was set at the Williamsburg Diner from Two Broke Girls where some of the nominees were ordering food from Max and Caroline or paying their bill. Kaley Cuoco from The Big Bang Theory didn’t have enough money to tip Max and Caroline, so she gives them an invitation to host the People’s Choice Awards instead.

Since they are broke, they have no idea how the heck they are going to get to the show. Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from Breaking Bad takes the girls on a wild ride to Nokia Theatre, and they end up on the red carpet entrance to the show.

At the show, Beth complains about the fact that people think that she is actually a waitress in real life. From the audience, Brad Paisley then asks her for a “burger and flies,” getting tongue tied, and Heidi Klum does the same. Kat reminds Beth that they are not taking orders because aren’t actually waitresses and they need to host the show. Beth is entranced by Brad Paisley and insists that she needs to get him his order. Out come tons of waitresses dressed in uniforms just like Max and Caroline from Two Broke Girls. “Burgers and fries for everyone!” shouted Kat.

Here are some of the highlights of the evening:

1. When Justin Timberlake is announced “Favorite Pop Artist,” Ellen Degeneres begins to make her way onto the stage. She’s too much!

2. When Malin Åkerman and Shemar Moore played that game. “Bert and Ernie,” Malin began. Shemar took it all the way to “Ebony and Ivory.” Then he continued, “This is not a game. I don’t see any rings on those fingers. I’m part Canadian, you’re Canadian…” Umm…

3. Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder joke about their relationship in their acceptance speech for “Best Chemistry.” Totally not awkward. I really wish  they were still dating! Ian even kissed her on the cheek at the end of the acceptance speech. They’re adorbs.

4. When Adam Sandler read the fake fan letter from Drew Barrymore. Too funny!

5. That awkward moment when Zac Efron realized he was having an awkward moment. Awks.

6. When Beth sang “The Hills Are Alive,” “Wrecking Ball,” “Before He Cheats,” and “Baby Got Back.” She even twerked a bit during the last number. Girl got moves!

7. When Malin Åkerman and Shemar Moore played that game. “Bert and Ernie,” Malin began. Shemar took it all the way to “Ebony and Ivory.” Then he continued, “This is not a game. I don’t see any rings on those fingers. I’m part Canadian, you’re Canadian…” Umm…

8. Robert Downey Jr.’s acceptance speech. He stole the spotlight.

Best Performance:

OneRepublic, “Counting Stars”

I loved the electronic vibe in the first part of the song!

And, as it was said by many throughout the evening, “For the people!”

Emma Roberts is Engaged!

Is this, as MTV News dubs it, “an #AmericanHorror love story?”

Emma Roberts and Evan Peters reportedly got engaged over the holidays. She has been spotted wearing a pink gold engagement ring.

It has only been six months since the domestic violence arrest.

Does this mean that everything’s okay between them now?

In July 2013, Emma Roberts was arrested after Peters was found in their Montreal hotel room with a bloody nose. Sources told TMZ that the two had been fighting, and a law enforcement officer said that Peters had a bite mark.

True love hurts?

Roberts and Peters have been dating since the spring of 2012. The two have not yet confirmed the engagement, but photographer Tyler Shields congratulated the two on Instagram with a photo of the American Horror Story cast where Emma Roberts is flying through the air.

 

Even though many fans do not support the engagement, I wish them all the best, regardless of the relationship’s past.
