New Pop On The Block

Basement Jaxx – Take Me Back To Your House
I liked this when I saw it on TV and even more so when I heard that the lady singer is actually her from Dragonette, a really ace Canadian band. Since the Basement Jaxx album also stars Robyn, they’ve definitely done well on the collaboration front. The song is catchy and gets very much stuck in your head, but I still like the Dragonette songs better. I would suggest this collaboration could lead to big things for them, but since it didn’t seem to help Kele Le Roc or JC Chasez much, maybe not.

JC Chasez – Until Yesterday
This is a great comeback single for JC, but of course I’m not suggesting it will be a big hit or anything like that. Still, it deserves to be, especially now that Justin isn’t making very ace music. Before, JT’s success could be justified (pun not even intended) by Like I Love You and Cry Me A River, but without those the superiority of JC is clearer than ever.

Upper Street – The One
Due to being in the land of no TV (let alone Sky Digital), I haven’t been able to watch any of Totally Boyband since the first episode, but thanks to the wonder of YouTube I have seen their debut video. I must say although it’s not going to be up there with the highlights of S Club or 911’s careers, I still like it better than anything Another Level released. I was expecting worse – namely something involving guitars, so the poppy r’n’b approach is not too bad. I doubt it’s going to make them huge but a top 10 hit isn’t impossible.
