Charlotte SometimesShe may be named after a Cure song but don’t take that as a clue as to how her music sounds – instead she’s more of a mix between KT Tunstall and Nicole Atkins. Her new video for How I Could Just Kill A Man is fun, and the single cover is fabulous, although… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?
Holly Throsby – A Heart Divided (Video)I could tell just be looking at her photo that I would like this singer, and I was right. The world may not have been in need of another Butterly Boucher, but there’s certainly no harm in having one. Like Butterfly, Holly is Australian, with a nice look and… Continue reading New Pop on the Australian Block
Well, breaking in the sense that I only just learnt about it: Switches are the new BBMak! Having failed to set the UK charts alight with their acceptably middling guitar-boyband music, despite my predicting them as one of the big acts of 2007, they’ve unexpectedly turned up in the USA. Give them a few months… Continue reading Breaking news!

There’s an odd thing going on here:… Continue reading New Pop On The Block

She also made her her name on YouTube, so if she doesn’t succeed (or turns out to be a fake) we can all just switch tactics and term her… Continue reading International Video Challenge
On Thursday I attended a very special event. It was the first ever public performance by the all new Pipettes! When a band replaces 2/3 of its members, it’s natural for fans to be a little concerned, but with a back-catalogue like theirs and a member like Gwenno (who was always my favourite anyway), how… Continue reading DP Review: The Pipettes Live!
Pros:– It is amazing to finally have the super-brilliant new songs to listen to when I like.– The sleeve is without doubt the best sleeve I’ve ever seen.– TOUCH ME TOUCHING YOU! TOUCH ME TOUCHING YOU! TOUCH ME TOUCHING YOU! etc.– It’s got Anders B on it. Cons:– The new versions of old songs sound… Continue reading Pros and cons of the ‘new’ Alphabeat album
1. How much did Jonas Bros’ management pay to get their new single on the Radio 1 playlist?2. How did I never hear about this? It’s hilarious! No matter how rubbish the song is, if the video concept is wizards stealing boybands, all can be forgiven.3. Is the pineapple at the end of that video… Continue reading Questions of the day
