Jimmy Somerville: Homage

-1Jimmy Somerville is set to drop new album Homage on March 10th in the U.S.

“Travesty”, written by Somerville and produced by John Winfield, is a taster of the album which - as the name and Somerville’s back catalog might suggest - pays homage to the disco era.

Somerville and Winfield say they worked hard to authentically recreate the original sound of the disco era.

On Hommage, Jimmy says:

“I've finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I'd buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate-fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I'd be in heaven!  The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound ... I LOVE Disco!"

Neutronic: “Closer”

The 80s electro pop revival (mark four) shows no signs of letting up in 2015.

With breakout acts like Oh Wonder previously Wonder Wonder) and the ubiquitous CHVRCHES in 2014, first off the blocks this year is England-based duo Neutronic, a boy-girl duo with downtempo electronica tricks to spare, beautiful harmonies and a warm rush of instrumentation.

Have a listing to their brilliant debut track “Closer” which should by rights be huge.

Shia LaBeouf Gets Cagey In Sia's New Music Video 'Elastic Heart' - VIDEO

Lebeouf

When did Shia LaBeouf get woofy? In Sia's latest music video "Elastic Heart", Shia and "Chandelier" sensation Maddie Ziegler face off in a cage match, of sorts, wearing naught but skivvies and a layer of grime. Accompanied by Sia's distinctive and quirky musical style, the video is weirdly compelling and touching, and utterly open to interpretation.

The erstwhile Transformers star appears to be taking control of his acting career and moving it into a new direction, and if Rob Cantor's "Shia LaBeouf" music video is any indication, he's maturing and taking his public perception in good humor.

As for Sia, she seems to be on quite the roll with engaging piece after engaging piece, the latest of which you can watch AFTER THE JUMP...

The Chew Toys: “Leather Sweater” (work unfriendly)

Chew toysThe Chew Toys (above and right) is a queercore married couple making trash punk “dumb sex songs like Kiss had on Rock & Roll Over, but about guys.”

On their debut album which came out last October, The Chew Toys have this to say:

“We really wanted to do an album that was most definitely queer, but still a rock album that would hold its own against anything else out there. That said, it was important for us to tackle important topics in a fun way - we look at the divisiveness of bear culture, the myths of queer identity, social media dysfunction - alongside songs about banging dudes from Boston, daddy chasers, paying for your own drinks, Quaaludes and more.

“We’ve played these extremely queer songs to primarily straight audiences for over two years now. Nobody seems to give a damn when we introduce the songs and clearly spell out that I’ve banged a lot of guys from Boston, or that this one is about edging a dude ‘til he can’t take it any more. It was a bit of an ‘oh shit’ moment when we started out but straight guys seem to like it when anyone sings about sex with anything as far as we’ve been able to tell.

“The song we did the video for - 'Leather Sweater' - is about being so hot for a guy you want to basically tear him apart. It’s always cool to see straight guys in the crowd singing along.”

Check out the lyrics and the song below for yourself:

I’m all over your shit / I got you wrapped up nice and tight / I’m all over your shit / I’m going heavy when you want it light

I’m your leather sweater / I’m ink and fur and salt and sweat uh huh

I’m all over your shit / I am the one that you think of first / I’m all over your shit / I’m gonna edge you til you fuckin’ burst

I’m all over your shit / Like the rainstorm that covers this town / I’m all over your shit / I’m the king that will wear your crown
