The Naked And Famous are from New Zealand, and ready to make 2011 their year. Already climbing up the CMJ charts with their single Young Blood currently in the Top 10 and a session on KCRW’s acclaimed radio show Morning Becomes Ecletic, the band are hitting the road in the US and have already been to Canada also. The Naked And Famous have quickly become a #1 smash in their homeland with their album Passive Me, Aggresive You debuting at #1 on the New Zealand album charts, Young Blood hitting #1 on the singles charts, and the album was voted critics #1 album of 2010 by The New Zealand Herald. In the UK, the band was one of 15 chosen on the BBC’s coveted “Sounds of 2011″ list and NME’s Ones To Watch list for 2011.” Here is the video to their hit song.

Video Of The Week: Hooray For Earth – True Loves (Cereal Spiller Remix)

posted July 15, 2011, 10:27 am by Ben Oliver | Filed Under Music News | comment Leave a Comment


Are you familiar with the band Hooray For Earth yet? They are from NYC and have been around for a few years now. I first watched this video a couple of weeks ago and it made quite the impression on me. That’s saying quite a bit, if you knew how many videos I watch! The song is from their The Song ‘True Loves’ And Remixes Of The Song ‘True Loves’ ep. It’s a superb idea that starts with a macrocosmic view from space, then gradually zooms into the smallest particles of matter. It’s visually stunning and dramatically entertaining. Hope you dig it as much as I do.

Tags: skrillex, oh no, the other shoe, shabazz palaces, cults, get away


Thanks for checking out the newest edition of our weekly podcast. This time, I have personally chosen some artists that I feel most confident about having a break through year in 2011. These are not all unknown acts, some are already attracting attention. My goal was not to be the first to introduce this music to the world, but hopefully introduce it to many more people. The majority of this playlist are brand new songs from this year, minus the exception of 1 or 2 of them. We have rock, hip-hop, pop, electronic/dubstep, and even a bit of country. Please let us know what you think!

***PARENTAL ADVISORY***
1. Cults – “Abducted”
2. F*cked Up – “The Other Shoe”
3. Shabazz Palaces – “32 Leaves Dipped In Blackness”
4. Gardens And Villas – “Orange Blossom”
5. Skrillex – “First Of The Year (Equinox)”
6. Shwayze and Cisco – “Butterflies”
7. Girl Talk – “Oh No”
8. Jessica Lea Mayfield – “Our Hearts Are Wrong”
9. Yuck – “Get Away”
