Major Lazer – “Lost” (Feat. MØ) (Frank Ocean Cover)

It’s now been more than three years since Frank Ocean gave us his Channel Orange masterpiece, and everything we know about its eventual follow-up belongs to the realms of rumor and conjecture. So here’s a slight consolation prize: Diplo’s Major Lazer crew and the Danish singer MØ, the team behind the great and enormous summer… More »

Watch Major Lazer & MØ Do “Lean On” On Fallon

I’m going to miss the days when Major Lazer’s live show was just Diplo playing records and Skerrit Bwoy leaping off ladders while daggering. But the current-day three-producer version of Major Lazer has something that other version didn’t have: A geniune bona fide summer jam. “Lean On,” the group’s collaboration with DJ Snake and MØ… More »

Not to be confused with Brooklyn’s Northside Festival, Denmark’s NorthSide Festival (note the capitalization!) takes place ever June in Aarhaus Denmark, and the fest celebrated its sixth year of existence with a lineup featuring the Black Keys, FKA Twigs, Death Cab For Cutie, alt-J, the Wu-Tang Clan (at least, some of them), and a bunch… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week, the YouTube Music Awards rebranded from an actual award show, albeit a knowingly janky and slapdash one, to a weird “let’s dump a bunch of big videos online at once” stunt. I can’t pretend to understand what’s going on there, but it did result in a whole pile of great videos. This week,… More »

Major Lazer & DJ Snake – “Lean On” (Feat. MØ)

Major Lazer are back with “Lean On,” the production team’s first new track of the year and what’s supposed to serve as the start for an onslaught of projects in 2015. Featuring vocals from pop up-and-comer MØ — whose No Mythologies To Follow was severely underrated last year — the track minimizes Major Lazer’s stereotypical… More »

MØ – “New Year’s Eve”

MØ had a pretty big year, though not as big as she probably should have had given the quality of No Mythologies To Follow, but she’s not letting the lukewarm reception to her debut on this side of the Atlantic get her down. She’s just shared a new track to ring in the New Year… More »

Major Lazer – “All My Love” (Feat. Ariana Grande)

As previously reported, the one unannounced song from the upcoming Lorde-curated The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 soundtrack is a collaboration between R&B-pop wunderkind Ariana Grande and Diplo. As it turns out, that song, “All My Love,” is credited to Major Lazer featuring Grande. It was also co-written by emerging Danish pop star and… More »

After an off performance alongside Iggy Azalea on SNL this past weekend, MØ tweeted a picture of a handwritten letter, penned for her fans, offering an explanation for the problems she encountered on set.

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Lady Gaga, it turns out, did a smart thing. She’d made a shitty, ill-advised, creeped-out video with two guys who became public pariahs shortly thereafter, if they weren’t already. And then she scrapped it, though it’s certainly possible that she leaked the piece of it that went up on TMZ. She really had to scra… More »

MØ – “Walk This Way” Video

Few people on this planet are as good at striking dramatic poses in music videos as the Danish pop singer MØ is. MØ’s music videos are almost uniformly excellent, and they seem to revolve almost entirely around dramatic poses. MØ released her debut album No Mythologies To Follow earlier this year, and her video for… More »

Watch MØ At Home

Karen Marie Ørsted has caught our eye again and again, from her Spice Girls cover to her music videos. Bottom line — she’s going places, so it’s interesting to learn a bit more about where she came from. Less a music video and more a chance to glimpse behind the scenes of a rising po… More »

MØ – “Say You’ll Be There” (Spice Girls Cover)

Karen Marie Ørsted caught our eyes and ears exactly one year ago with the video for “Glass.” Since then we’ve been tracking MØ’s follow-up singles and anticipating the release of her debut album. That day will come later this month, but first we get to hear the Danish pop singer’s sultry reimagining of a Spice… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

It’s not a proper music video, so it’s not on this list, but Yours Truly’s series of videos from the Young Turks new years festival in Tulum, Mexico is the greatest marriage of music and moving images that I’ve seen this week. These clips — Caroline Polachek singing opera while standing knee-deep in a crystalline… More »

MØ – “Don’t Wanna Dance” Video

With less than a month until the release of her debut album, MØ has released a badass video for infectious lead single “Don’t Wanna Dance,” which sees the Danish pop singer busting some moves in a pretty sweet furry pink coat with a car compactor in the background. Watch below. More »

MØ – “Don’t Wanna Dance”

A new track from MØ’s upcoming debut album premiered on Zane Lowe’s radio show the other night. “Don’t Wanna Dance” is the most straightforward pop song the Danish singer has released so far. She trades in her dark synths for handclaps and it’s a lot more light-hearted than what we’re used to from her, bordering… More »
