Hot Video Alert: Kate Nash - Kiss That Grrrl

After seeing Kate Nash live in Boston earlier this Spring, I honestly didn't know what to think of her anymore. I had such HIGH expectations going into this live show and she really just didn't deliver. Yes, she was probably medicated after severely injuring her ankle (jumping on a bed)...but that didn't excuse being clearly wasted. She cursed, she screamed into the mic...she belched. She really was a hot mess. Such a hot mess that we didn't even stay through to the end of the show. I NEVER leave a show early.  Also, I don't think I'm as big a fan of her new sound as I was of the music off her first album.  It was angrier, punkier, louder...not the sweet, soft pop that I came to know and love from Made Of Bricks.  That being said, I'd love for her to redeem herself live sometime. Maybe I'll catch her next time she's touring Boston?

OK. Now for the point of this whole post.  I quite enjoy the new video for her new single "Kiss That Grrrl" off of her new album My Best Friend Is You. It's fun and flirty and very much in the same vibe as first single "Do-Wah-Doo". Maybe I like her new album but not her new album live? That's possible.

The Saturdays Unveil New Single Details

One of my favorite girl groups out right now is The Saturdays.  While it took me a while to catch on, after listening to all of the remixes released from their past two albums, I decided that the time was right to purchase BOTH of their CDs.  In a bit of exciting news, the girls have released some info about their brand new single.  The girls shared the good news in a Studio Five interview on June 2nd, that new single "Missing You" will be released August 9th and (surprise surprise) it's about...a boy. They've been a busy bunch, apparently filming the accompanying video on a beach in Spain (see photo below from the video shoot). 

Hmmm...this is sounding suspiciously like a ballad to me. Considering "Up" and "Ego" have been their two most successful singles to date, they need to go for AT LEAST a mid-tempo number. Looks like we have to wait a little bit longer for our first listen. I will reserve final judgment until then.

Hot Video Alert: Paradiso Girls - Who's My Bitch

Wow. Has it really been OVER A YEAR since Robin Antin's own Paradiso Girls released their debut single, "Patron Tequila?" Insanity! When "Patron Tequila" was released my expectations were pretty high for the girls. Now...I don't know what to think. The girls' unveiled their second single "Who's My Bitch" today on MySpace (watch it HERE if embedded content isn't working) and it's sort of a let down for me. "Patron Tequila" was high energy, and featured both Lil' Jon and Eve..."Who's My Bitch" is just the girls. And while Lauren Bennett's operatic solo thing at the beginning is pretty impressive, the song itself is kind of a mess.

The song itself is a bit too slow moving to me. Oh...and the girls are BARELY singing! At least "Patron Tequila" had some verses that allowed Chelsea, Lauren and Aria to do their thing. This is pretty much a cheer leader chant backed up by a sexy beat. The video also doesn't really have anything going on except for the girls dancing around a studio. Things get a little more interesting at the 2:23 mark where the video goes black & white and feature Chelsea, Aria, Lauren, Shar and Kelly dressed exactly the same, donning black Britney Spears wigs. Overall, however...a disappointment, especially considering how long it's taken come out with new material. Maybe some club mixes will cheer me up? Considering "Patron Tequila" went Top 3 on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Chart, they'd be silly not to release some remixes.

What I CAN say about the video is that it really showcases the girls' sex appeal. I gotta hand it to Chelsea Korka - you've come a long way baby! I remember way back from Search For the Next Doll where Chelsea was the "singer" of the competition. She had very little dance experience. By watching this video, you can tell she's been working her ass off. Good for you girl.

The single is due out sometime this year, as is their debut album Crazy Horse.
