TRACK RECORD

New Music From Stevie Nicks & Britney Spears, Natalia Kill, Rich Aucoin, And More!

You queens want dance pop? Well I’ll give you dance pop: How about a Stevie Nicks/Britney Spears mash-up? Sure Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” has been remixed, like, a gajillion times, and sweet baby Satan knows this “Till the Dream Ends” mash-up by DJ Lobsterdust isn’t exactly groundbreaking stuff. But as novelty tracks go, we can get behind this. And apparently so can Britney. NEXT: If Mika and Arcade Fire had a baby…  
  Canadian indie-pop cutie Rich Aucoin’s latest EP, We’re All Dying to Live, may have hit the U.S. back in October, but he’s just now making his way stateside for some tour dates. Aucoin—whose video for “It” you can check out abovve—is coming to New York, New Orleans, Santa Monica and L.A. later in January and if you happen to be in any of those cities, we seriously recommend you check him out. He’s in the same poppy vein as Mika and Patrick Wolfe, but without the latter’s depressive melodrama or the former’s sensory overload. Think big open pop: The kind of music that makes you feel like there’s a big and bright blue sky up there, even in the dead of winter. Lord knows we could use that. NEXT: Another Canadian invader, this one a bit darker.
For something a little moodier out of Canada, there’s Trust’s new track, “Bulbform.” The song, above, precedes the Toronto duo’s debut album, TRST, which comes out in February. Lead singer Robert Alfons used to take photos for OMG Blog, so the band has been getting a bit of love from that direction. Their sound is more danceable than a lot of the dark synth and witch-house stuff out there—more in line with Fever Ray and The Knife than, say, Salem (or S4L3M, however the hell you’re supposed to type that) If “Bulbform” grabs you, Trust’s clip for “Candy Walls” is worth checking out as well. NEXT: New and notable tracks from Natalia Kill, Neon Hitch, and Jen Urban and the Box.

ALSO NEW & NOTABLE:

 

Natalia Kill’s new video for “Kill My Boyfriend”

 


Neon Hitch’s “F U Betta”

 

Jen Urban & the Box’s latest video: “21”

    DJ Lobsterdust is shit. Imagine combining a true talent like Stevie Nicks with a no-talent miming hack like Britney (Shitney). It’s an insult to the concept of good music.

    DJ Lobsterdust can take his mashed-up diarrhea and shove it.

    STEVIE NICKS WAS REALLY HOT BACK IN THE DAY. HOWEVER, HER VOICE SOUNDS LIKE A GOAT MATED WITH MACHINE GUN.

  • Triple S

    I don’t get why bloody Britney Spears is as popular as she is; she looks pretty ugly (probably because of the Barbie look) and her voice is the same as the other hundreds of nobody musicians (not to say that the nobody musicians are bad, their music can still be good, but they’re still nobodies). Ah well

  • Xtincta

    In what way does Britney sound like anyone else? If anything her unique voice is part of the reason why she has been propelled as far as she has…. Then again this is Queerty why am I even wasting my time.

  • Mrs. Robinson

    Do today’s young people even know who Nicks is?

  • Love2LoveBritBrit

    I love this mix and Britney! You gotta listen to the mix a few time and then you will get the genius of it! GO BRIT QUEEN of POP!

  • Triple S

    @Mrs. Robinson: I know! I know! FleetWood Mac singer! I think…If I got that wrong, then I look a bit stupid. But at least your question will be answered!

  • TASTEY GOODIES

    @Triple S: Howdy ho, mate! I love girls and I think Britney has become more attractive as time went on. However, I still find her voice sounds like a 7yr old girl singing. I like Fleetwood Mac’s music but Stevie Nix voice sounds like a machine gun mated w/ a goat. Her vibrato is too fast.

  • Matthew

    Yay Rich Aucoin! Another excellent export of Halifax – as well as one of the actresses from Picnicface who makes a cameo in the video, yo.

  • Prel Latourette

    I adore Stevie Nicks and I have nothing against Britney…I actually like the mashup, but the biggest difference between the two “artist” is that Stevie Nicks is, first and foremost, a singer/songerwriter, not a pop star. She’s the reigning Queen of Rock and would never, ever be caught dead lip-syncing.
