'My God' It's Boy George: VIDEO


Boy George has released a new video for his latest single, "My God".


George told an interviewer for Emusic back in October that the song is about a guy who tried to convert him to Christianity in a NYC bar:

I was in a bar in New York, the B Bar, that I used to go to every Tuesday. It was everyone’s favorite haunt. I was drunk and messy, and this guy came up and gave me a Jesus pamphlet. First of all, I didn’t know what it was. I thought, “Oh that’s nice, he’s given me a book!” Then I was like, “Arrgh, how dare he!”

Back then, if people said, “Oh, I’ll pray for you,” I’d shudder. Now I’m a bit more open to that. Back then, it was more, what do you mean, you’re gonna pray for me?! I was very defensive, so with this guy, I was like, “What if I gave you a pamphlet on cross-dressing? What would you say?”

It was presumptuous of me. In hindsight, I just think that the universe does things to poke you. During that period, I was kind of screaming out to be contained in some way. And it happened, certainly not in any way that I desired it, or planned it [i.e in court, on assault and false imprisonment charges], but it’s what happened.

The OXD Mirror: New Music For 7.19.13



The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tadeu Magalhães, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.  

The North Sea - 'Evil Eye (Todd Terje Extended Remix)' The North Sea is a collaboration between Franz Ferdinand and Norwegian disco giant Todd Terje. Terje trades his signature cosmic disco hat for one that is a bit more indie rock on this collaboration with the Scottish band that hit the world by storm in 2004. The result is a track that is equally as indie as Franz Ferdinand's previous efforts and yet also rooted in the disco sound we've grown to love from Terje. The track will appear on Franz Ferdinand’s forthcoming new LP, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action (on which Terje shares producing credits), due on August 26 via Domino Records.

Boat Club - 'Warmer Climes' Boat Club, a balearic pop duo from Gothenburg, Sweden that consists of the members Andreas and Magnus, is reissuing their 2007 mini album, Caught in the Breeze, and it couldn't come at a more opportune time. The second single, 'Warmer Climes,' is pure euphoric bliss: a languid guitar riff and cascading tropical synths provide a sun-drenched backdrop to the soft, ethereal vocals.

Dharma Protocol ft. Boy George - 'Coming Home (Psychemagik Remix)' Boy George's latest musical venture, Dharma Protocol, just released their first single, 'Coming Home,' co-produced by Mikey Craig of Culture Club, Moto Blanco’s Danny Harrison and The Orb’s Youth. Psychemagik, the UK duo known for their sensational disco and psychedelic edits, gives the original track a pleasantly trippy rework that utilizes a musical landscape consisting of bouncing synths, a churning bassline and, of course, Boy George's beautiful vocals.

Funky Fat - 'Jealousy' UK label Hot Creations claims to have this year's Summer Anthem on their hand with Funky Fat's 'Jealousy.' The Brazilian quartet delivers an eponymous funky, vibrant groove that fuses electro, disco and pop elements and highlights Manu d´Alcântara's seductive, accented vocals. The release also features a remix by Horse Meat Disco legend Severino, which (hopefully) will shape up to be a huge hit on dancefloors worldwide.

Bobmo - 'Werk It' Bobmo (Huges Ray) hails from France, where he cut his musical teeth in high school by making beats on a Sony Playstation. He has since moved on to professional mediums and recently released 'Werk It,' the standout track from his latest EP, Sonic Soul. The song's repeated lyrical refrain is layered over aggressive synths creating a sweaty late night dancefloor burner.
