Song of the Day - Shoot the Bullet

Queen of Hearts - Shoot the Bullet

Yeah, so... What to say. Queen of Hearts seems like she has the potential to be a really cool electro lady. She's got that Goldfrappy vibe going on, there's some nice vocals on display... But it's all just a bit 'been there, done that' boring isn't it? The video seems to sap all the energy the song possesses, which is a shame. Then you've got the Queen of Hearts persona, which is an amalgamation of every other eccentric female artist out there right now. Like I said, a lot of potential here and once she releases the video for 'Freestyle' I'm sure my tune will change. Perhaps just listen to 'Shoot the Bullet' without watching the video.

Song of the Day - Don't Make A Fool Out of Me

Kitty Daisy and Lewis - Don't Make A Fool Out of Me

This is just too much fun! We see enough 80s throwbacks everyday, so it's nice to see the 50s and 60s getting some love. It's just really cool, alright?

Song of the Day - Scale It Back

DJ Shadow ft. Little Dragon - Scale It Back

Little Dragon + DJ Shadow have provided the perfect sound for these last remaining days of beautiful sunshine in Europe. I'm sure they didn't intentionally cater to my need for a new summer relaxation number, but it's nice to pretend they did. So I will. What of it? DJ Shadow has lined up some pretty cool collaborators for his new album (and admittedly a couple of duds), but none can top the voice of the great Yukimi. Little Dragon have been on a roll this year!
