Sky Ferreira Continues to Tease with Series of Lyric Videos, 'As If' EP Out Now

I still LOVE Sky Ferreira. I mean SERIOUSLY...I am in love with this girl. I am so anxious for her full length album to come out, I can't even think clearly! At least we have the UBER-FABULOUS As If EP to keep us happy until then. As I mentioned previously, the EP was released to tide fans over until the album's release. Released this past March, the 5-track EP is pure magic. Every single song is absolutely perfect, absolutely singleworthy. Job well done.

To keep fans EVEN MORE on the edge of their seats, Ferreira is releasing lyric videos for some of the EP's brilliant cuts. First up, we have the provacative "Sex Rules," which I mentioned in my last post. Next - my absolute (second) FAVORITE track on the EP - "99 Tears." Ferreira co-wrote the infectious track with Greg Kurstin and Nicole Morier (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Britney Spears). Most recently, a lyric video for the Bloodshy & Avant-produced "108." I suppose you could say that "108" is my LEAST favorite song off the As If EP but that doesn't mean that I don't like it. It's just not my favorite. The song does showcase Ferreira's sense of humor and personality, which is never really lacking in anything she does (HELLO - check out the video for "Obsession"!).  While lyric videos never really have been my thing, I gotta hand it to Capitol Records for the quality of these clips.  The Graphics are POPPIN. Wow.  Unlike many lyric videos, these actually make me want to watch!  Check them all out down below. Hopefully we'll get one for my FAVORITE favorite track, "Haters Anonymous" next. Now, get excited for Sky Ferreira's debut album, (HOPEFULLY) due out later this year.  In the meantime, download the brilliant As If EP on iTunes HERE and check out Sky on the cover of the UK's Wonderland magazine above.  In addition to covering magazines and serving as a spokes-model for Calvin Klein, she's also part of H&M's new Fashion Against AIDS campaign. Girl is keeping busy.

Better Late Than Never: John Legend Covers Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep'

OH MY GOD! I know this is late coming but I don't care. John Legend's cover of Adele's "Rolling In The Deep" is ORGASMICLY good. Wow. Check out John Legend's soulful acapella cover of Adele's international hit single. It's so wrought with emotion...I almost can't take it.  John explained via Twitter that he loved Adele's version and just wanted to cover it. I'm certainly glad he did, and you will be too. (Via Idolator)

Hot Video Alert: Kyle Brylin - Committed

Check out unsigned electro-pop artist Kyle Brylin. This 21 year old singer/songwriter hails from Wisconsin (YAY - a fellow Midwesterner) and claims to do 95% of his own work. I'm not 100% sure if he's talking production, songwriting, or what but kudos to him! While his material doesn't sound completely polished, there's definitely a lot of potential here. His latest single, "Committed" was released in January on Ninthwave Records (home to Music Is My King Size Bed favorite Van Go Lion), followed by a remix EP in March. Check out the music video for "Committed" below and see if you like what Brylin has to offer. Definitely give him a chance. I think with the right producers, songwriters and some good promotion, he could go far. Brylin is open to constructive criticism so feel free to reach out to him via his MySpace.  Here's a little blurb he wrote on his profile page:
Remember those kids who knew exactly what they wanted to be when they grew up? I was one of those. I said I wanted to be a singer when I was like, 5 and I haven't changed my mind yet. Now, I'm a 21 year old artist from Wisconsin. Want to know my biggest secrets? Listen to my music. It's the only place I pour my heart out. I have quite the sense of humor (I do say so myself), so try not to take me too seriously. I thrive on constructive criticism. Since I do 95% of my work, I would love to get a message/ comment from you if you have any advice for me (Yes, it's really me responding). Also, if you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. I'm really easy to talk to and am always ready to meet new people. Thanks for visiting, reading, and listening. -Kyle
There's just something so sweet and genuine about this guy. I admire an artist who realizes that their product isn't perfect and who welcomes constructive feedback. There's too much ego in the biz as it is so this sort of attitude is genuinely refreshing. I look forward to hearing more from Kyle Brylin in the future. Download "Committed" on iTunes HERE, the "Committed" Remix EP HERE and a new cover of Rihanna's hit single, "S&M" HERE. Good stuff.
