The Knife – "Full of Fire"

A few days ago (why am I always late?), The Knife unveiled the first single from their highly anticipated album Shaking the Habitual, which is due out April 8 internationally and April 9 in the United States. "Full of Fire" is a nine-minute club banger featuring urgent techno beats and weird-ass electronic noises. I can definitely picture myself slut-dropping to it in a sweaty, underground Stockholm club with some guy I've just met.

The gender-bending, equally bizarre music video/short film for the song was directed by Swedish filmmaker and visual artist Marit Östberg, who contributed a film to the 2009 Swedish feminist porn compilation Dirty Diaries (which includes music by Fever Ray).


The duo also revealed the album's eye-piercing artwork and track listing (mind you, it's almost 100 minutes long):


1. A Tooth for an Eye
2. Full of Fire
3. A Cherry on Top
4. Without You My Life Would Be Boring
5. Wrap Your Arms Around Me
6. Crake
7. Old Dreams Waiting to Be Realized
8. Raging Lung
9. Networking
10. Oryx
11. Stay Out Here (featuring Shannon Funchess and Emily Roysdon)
12. Fracking Fluid Injection
13. Ready to Lose

Best song titles ever.

So many of my favorite artists putting out new albums this year, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, Depeche Mode, Hurts, and quite possibly, Goldfrapp!! Not to mention Azealia Banks' full-length debut album! That is, if her sassitude doesn't fuck it up for her first. This is me right now:


Ta-ta!

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

Lilith help me, I want to stake the second episode of True Blood!

Episode 2: Authority Always Wins Well here we are again, time to sink our twin hard-ons into the new episode! Before I get into the thick of things, again I must let you know HERE BE MASSIVE SPOILERS. And I’m going to recap this by the characters instead of a timeline account, because not much happens in this episode.
