M.I.A. – “Bad Girls (Switch Remix)” (Feat. Missy Elliott & Rye Rye)

Well, this is awesome. Here's a track from M.I.A.'s forthcoming Bad Girls remix EP, a Switch remix that features verses from Missy Elliott (!!!) and Rye Rye. It reworks the original into a stuttering dancehall anthem and tailors the beat to the choppy deliveries of the rappers. Hear it at Soundcloud. Bad Girls: The RemixesMore »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

Tom's on his way to NYC's Pop Conference -- here's his event, a panel about mixtapes, which he knows a little bit about -- so I'm filling in today on the video beat. Even if he was around, he's still probably overstimulated from that dizzying best K-Pop videos list he put together yesterday. Anyway, let'… More »

Rye Rye – “Boom Boom”

Baltimore dance-rapper Rye Rye's video for her bubbly pop track "Boom Boom" plays like a hyperactive, phantasmagoric tribute to decades-old video games. I like the part where she rides a dolphin. Watch it below. More »

Rye Rye – “Never Will Be Mine” (Feat. Robyn)

This track, the second single from Rye Rye's much-delayed debut album Go! Pop! Bang, uses the vocal from Robyn's 2005 single "Be Mine." We heard the first single, "Sunshine," back in October 2010, but the revised February 2011 release date (it was originally supposed to come out back in 2009) passed without an album. Here… More »

Rye Rye – “Sunshine” (Feat. M.I.A.) (Stereogum Premiere)

Nearly every blog comment or review said 19-year-old Rye Rye stole the show at HARD NYC back in July. It was a welcome return after Rye Rye was quiet for a bit, and her in-the-works debut album, Go! Pop! Bang! was delayed (for good reason -- she had a baby girl in late 2009). So… More »

Indie Rockers Play Dress-Up For The New York Times

Coachella is already the most fashionable of the summer festivals by virtue of its proximity to Los Angeles, so this year the NYT ran with the glam, taking a bagful of high fashion garments and draping them on a bunch of rock stars for a fun little photo gallery. The spread runs in this week'… More »

New Rye Rye (Feat. M.I.A.) Video – “Bang”

M.I.A. protegé Rye Rye unleashed this banger around SXSW time, as one of the first releases on Maya's nascent N.E.E.T. label. And the 18 year old's first single is cloaked in her mentor's matronhood, from the hook's "bang"s, to the video dancers' neon outfits (a la Coachella), to the video's directorial credit (it's Arulpragasam's debut… 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 »

New Rye Rye (Feat. M.I.A.) – “Bang”

The Rye Rye/M.I.A. connections run deep: the pair toured relentlessly on the back of Kala, Rye teamed up with Afrikan Boy on the Paper Planes (Homeland Security Remixes) EP, now the 18 year-old is releasing her debut LP on Mama Arulpragasam's nascent N.E.E.T. label. M.I.A. doesn't do much more than "Bang" repeatedly on this Blaqstarr-produced… More »

M.I.A. Gets Mashed-Up By Diesel, Remixed By Jay-Z

Last year's Clash-sampling, terror-ific "Paper Planes" found a second life this summer, thanks to Pineapple Express and a bunch of hot rappers. Maya tells Rolling Stone, "The way human beings hear stuff, it's like, suddenly a song sounds better to you because it's been in a movie." Sensing that we've heard enough shitty covers by… More »
