Will Young Does Battle with Journalist Over Misuse of the Word 'Gay': VIDEO


Pop singer Will Young argues with journalist Milo Yiannopoulos on the BBC's Newsnight program about misuse of the word 'gay' by children. Young argues that children should be taught the real meaning of the word 'gay' and Yiannopoulos believes that scolding children for using the word gay as a pejorative is language policing.

Says Young: "If someone is being offensive to someone else, that should be highlighted and pointed out."

The OXD Mirror: New Music for 9.7.12


The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based movement 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. 

Many people consider Labor Day the end of summer despite having over 20 days left in the season. The songs in the first part of today's post echo this somber thought but after the jump you'll find tracks that will have you dancing into the fall.


The Reflections - 'Summer Days'

The California-based trio known as The Reflections focus on a failed summer romance on their debut single, 'Summer Days,' off their upcoming album Limerance. The song's breezy, light sound may make it sound like a cheery summer track, but don't let that fool you. The introspective lyrics, delivered in Darian Zahedi's soothing, melodic voice, tell a different story all together, leaving the listener wondering whether it is happy or sad to have ended the summer in solitude.


El Perro Del Mar - 'Walk on By'

Sarah Assbring, the Swedish pop artist better known as El Perro Del Mar, embraces being on her own with 'Walk on By,' the first single from her fifth album, Pale Fire. Sarah has moved on from the 60's-influenced album Love is Not Pop by playing the role of a chilled out, 80's Brit-soul/jazz singer that has decided to remove herself from the dating pool after one too many failed relationships. The sad tale is accompanied by haunting saxophone melodies that add to the song's seductive feel. If you're a fan of early Robyn or Lykke Li, this track is right up your alley.


Satellite Stories - 'Sirens (Slow Magic Remix)' 

The final solemn track in today's post comes from the Finnish quartet known as Satellite Stories. The original song is reminiscent of Two Door Cinema Club with its percussive, energetic sound. Known for their dreamwave style, Slow Magic replaces the original's staccato rhythms with soothing synths that give the lyrics a chance to shine. One can't help but sway along as lead singer, Esa, recounts a couple's last kiss before they end their relationship. Look for for Satellite Stories' debut album, Phases to Break the Ice, out on September 21st.
