Hot Video Alert: Hercules & Love Affair - My House

As New York-based dance/electronica act Hercules and Love Affair gets set to release their sophomore album (via Moshi Moshi Records) at the end of the month (January 31st), the band has unveiled a little taste of what we can expect with first single "My House." The band, which consists of Andy Butler, Kim Ann Foxman and Mark Pistel, are best known for their 2008 debut single, "Blind" (see the video HERE) which was co-written by and featuring Antony Hegarty (of Antony & The Johnsons). The song went on to hit #40 on the UK Singles Chart, while the group's self-titled debut album peaked at #191 on the Billboard 200 and #31 on the UK Albums Chart. "Blind" also had the honor of being named 'Best Song of 2008' by Pitchfork Media.

Now, the band is ready for round two and so far all signs are pointing to an AMAZING start. "My House" is a retro/electro dance floor stomper complete with a super low budget video that includes a commercial break.  As annoying as that might sound, it's actually quite cool. Quirky vocals, thumping beats, a cheesy fun video...this song is a hit in my book. Very much looking forward to hearing more from the new album, Blue Songs, due out January 31st. The single is due to be released on the same day as the album. Can't wait! Check out the video below or check it out HERE if the embed isn't working.

Hot Video Alert: Ricky Martin feat. Joss Stone - The Best Thing About Me Is You

Ricky Martin celebrates love in his new video for "The Best Thing About Me Is You." Man love, lady love, interracial love - every kind of love imaginable. The video, directed by Carlos Perez, is simple affair shot in black and white and featuring Martin surrounded by a multitude of different models of all ages and races. While the video has a distinctive 'feel good' vibe to it, the song itself is a bit cheesy. The song was co-written by Martin, Claudia Brant, Desmond Child, Andreas Carlsson and Eric Brazillian and produced by Child. The strong reggae influence, while light and loose doesn't really work with the lyrics. Something about it just doesn't work for me.

"The Best Thing About Me Is You" (along with the Spanish version, "Lo Mejor De Mi Vida Eres Tú") is the first single to be lifted off of Martin's forthcoming bilingual album, Música + Alma + Sexo. The single, which features British singer/songwriter Joss Stone on the English version and Natalia Jiménez on the Spanish version (neither of whom appear in the video), peaked at #1 on the Billboard Latin Pop SongsBillboard Hot 100 chart not to mention #74 on the . The single gives Stone her highest Billboard chart position since 2007's "Tell Me 'Bout It" which peaked at #83.  Sad since that song is SO much better than this one.  Download "The Best Thing About Me Is You" on iTunes HERE and look out for Martin's new album, Música + Alma + Sexo, due out February 1st via Columbia and Sony Music Latin.
