Little Boots – “Headphones”

Hands, the debut album from perma-charming British dance diva Little Boots, is now three years old, and she’s finally putting some new jams out into the world, like the tracks “Shake” and “I Wish.” A new song called “Headphones,” about the patently ridiculous activity of wearing your headphones to a disco, debuted on BBC Radio… More »

Azari & III Remix Little Boots

Victoria Hesketh aka tenori-on slinger/breast-supporter Little Boots has an LP to followup her 2009 debut Hands. It’s still untitled, but lead single “Shake” exists as a middling techno/house opening salvo. It’s better in Azari & III’s hands, though; the Toronto house heroes don’t do much beside trim down the beat, giving it an even more… More »

Reading & Leeds Festivals 2009 In Photos

This past weekend, bill-sharing fellows Reading and Leeds were tasked with distracting a nation still reeling from the death of its Oasis. Their secret weapons were unannounced sets by Them Crooked Vultures, the tweet-happy supergroup of Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones, and Josh Homme who introduced his band as “Michael Jackson” because he’s so talentedMore »

New Basement Jaxx (Feat. Santigold) – “Saga”

On the heels of their resounding return to form “Raindrops,” UK electrobeat gurus Basement Jaxx are now busy leaking scraps from their forthcoming Scars. Smart move since everybody’s wondering if any other of the LP’s tracks — or its myriad cameo list — can hold a candle to the slippery spunk of that sensational single. More »

New Little Boots – “Not Now”

Next week Victoria Hesketh puts out her full-length debut in the UK, Hands (streaming on MySpace). She’s not quite ready for a full-length closeup Stateside, although Little Boots is not leaving this side of the Atlantic hanging entirely, either; Americans without internet connections and the ability to download international releases will have to make do… More »

Little Boots Puts Her Hands On The BioFit 7-Way Bra

Victoria’s Secret continues soundtracking ads that they could likely get away with doing in silence, but so it goes. The first on our radar was Lykke Li and Heidi Klum selling us on the Ipex line’s microsmooth fabric and nipple concealment, then it was Joanna Newsom and Miranda Kerr on the Dream Angels push-up. Thi… More »

New Little Boots Video – “New In Town”

When Victoria Hesketh came to CMJ last year with her Tenori-on and “Stuck On Repeat” being just that for bloggers seeking a new pop fix, she was a “must see” that wound up in the “promising but in progress” department. By SXSW she had BBC’s breakout stamp and peoples were all like She Is Ready. More »

SXSW 2009: Saturday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
The last day at SXSW is always tinged with a depressing end-of-the-summer vibe. (Or maybe end of the school year?) However you want to frame it, once the Saturday sun sets, the remaining hours of four short days feel like the end of something bigger. Pass a hankie. Seriously… More »

SXSW 2009: Friday In Photos

By Amrit Singh & Brandon Stosuy
On Friday we shook off the early-morning cobwebs and made a beeline to the Pitchfork/Windish Bash in time to catch the last couple tracks by psychedelic post-Vanishing Voice Brooklynites Woods on the outside stage (as far as labels go, this was undeniably the year of the Woodsist) and SchoolMore »

SXSW 2009: Kanye, Common, Cudi, Badu @ FADER Fort

In the second worst surprise (oh hai, Lars) of SXSW, a denim-clad Kanye West served as ringleader of the G.O.O.D. Music showcase at Levi’s/FADER Fort Saturday night. “It feels so good to rock for you tonight,” he told a packed tent at the start of a three hour set that alternated between his hits and… More »

The BBC Names 2009’s Most Likely Breakout Acts

CMJ ’08: It’s A Photo Wrap

The crapshoot buffet of 25 minute sets from overextended bands is now closed, thanks. When you’re out all day and all night, you encounter lots — some undercooked and unpalatable flller, some that’s ripe and right, lots never intended for consumption (CMJ set delays, so hott right now). We’ve posted some standouts already, but here… More »

CMJ ’08: Friendy Fires, Little Boots, Amazing Baby Get This Party Started

We can’t catch all the hot CMJ show shows on our own, so Stereogum asked Abbey Braden to send in pics and video of notable sets from days one and two.
