Eli Lieb Wants You To Know You're 'Lightning In A Bottle' - VIDEO


Out singer-songwriter Eli Lieb is back with another original song, "Lightning in a Bottle," about believing in the power of your own unbridled spirit. Lieb told Out Magazine

"I want people to see the music video, hear the song, really listen to the lyrics, and live their truth. This is a celebration of people. I've lived promoting the idea of the authentic self and not to be afraid of who you are. It’s proven to be one of the key elements of my life and career. The song is about that: about being who you are."

The music video for Lieb's latest song, which just dropped today, features Shangela from RuPaul’s Drag Race, and professional dancers Jenna Riegel (Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company) and Caitlin Scranton (The Lucinda Dance Company). Lieb hopes this video will inspire people to be their truest selves: "It's a feel-good video. I want people to be their brightest light."

NEW MUSIC: Cash+David, Never Mind The Baubles, Bent Cousin, Wonderful Humans, Nieves, Draag

  Cash+david ' Bones'

New Music, brought to you weekly by Deadly Music!, will generally avoid most mainstream music - unless it's particularly deadly - to give new, emerging and fringe artists a chance. Most tracks are available on a Soundcloud playlist, some of them on a Spotify playlist....both of which are embedded at the end of this post.



Cash+David: ‘Bones’

Cash + David is London-based duo Tim Ross (Cash) and Liz Lawrence (David).

Tim and Liz have described their music as like “singing ‘Like A Virgin’ in a desert karaoke booth, with Sleigh Bells on percussion and M83 on guitars”.

Fast carving out a niche for themselves with their dark, downtempo electro pop, the duo are also gaining attention for their striking visuals as much as their gorgeous sad pop music.

Watch the beautiful performance-based video for their latest track ‘Bones.’


Never Mind the Baubles - Small Bear’s 2014 Christmas Album

Never-Mind-The-Baubles-Small-Bears-2014-Christmas-AlbumIt’s Christmas time, there’s no need to be afraid.

Recording one off alternative Christmas songs has become a major thing in recent years and now a lot of independent record companies are getting in on the act with yearly compilations.

Possible best-in-show this year is Isle of Man label Small Bear’s ‘Never Mind the Baubles’ 2014 Christmas Album.

Have a listen to album standout track 'Happy Christmas (Alan McGee Is An Arse)' by The Bordellos, a thing of real beauty that channels Aled Jones with Half Man Half Biscuit and a touch of The Jesus and Mary Chain.

S club 7

An actor on English soap opera Eastenders was reportedly cut from a quiz segment on the BBC telethon ‘Children In Need’ following a gay joke, according to Yahoo!

Shane RitchieShane Ritchie is alleged to have said “Hurry up! Last person in is gay” while he and members of reformed 90s pop band S Club 7 were trying to fit into an elevator together.

S Club 7 band member Jon Lee came out in 2010.

Following the remark, three members of the band are thought to have refused to appear alongside Ritchie.

A source close to the actor confirmed that Ritchie made the joke but did not mean it in an offensive manner.

Back in January, a kiss between two gay characters on Eastenders led to an outburst of homophobic comments on social media. In April, the soap's resident beefcake Ben Hardy appeared on the cover of Attitude.
