[Hot Video Alert] Cheryl Cole - Call My Name

Cheryl Cole

Time for (possibly) the UNDERSTATEMENT of the year: Cheryl Cole is one FIERCE bitch.  OOZING sex in the JUST released video for new single, "Call My Name," Cheryl gives us all a highly caffeinated, neon-filled tutorial in FABULOSITY and I want to take it AGAIN!  

In the grimy, dirty (yet still somehow chic and classy) Anthony Mandler-directed clip Cheryl first dazzles us into submission by strutting (and posing) her way through some dank graffiti-marred reservoir tunnel whilst wearing a leopard bikini bottom, tattoos on her thighs and ass, and a brightly colored neon print jacket with matching neon peep-toe pumps. Did I miss anything?  Before the song even starts, Cheryl throws us all a massive curve ball when a seemingly out-of-place Marquis de Sade quote about TORMENT flops up onto the screen in a white stencil font. Not sure where the torment comes into play here, but who cares? Just grind and pose Cheryl. Grind and pose.

Graffiti6 Add New Headline Tour Dates, Set to Play 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' May 24th

Photo Credit: Marina Chavez
For those of you who haven't yet fallen in love with UK indie pop outfit Graffiti6 (AKA Jamie Scott & Tommy "D" Danvers) now's your chance!  The band, currently on tour with singer/songwriter Eric Hutchinson, has just announced NEW tour dates. Yessir! More dates than previously mentioned! Good news for me, the band is coming back to Boston, and while they're playing the exact same venue they did last time when only 10 people showed up, I have faith.

Ones to Watch in 2012: Murray James

Murray James

STOP WHAT YOU'RE DOING. Listen to this song. This is Murray James, and he might just be my latest obsession.  "In The City" is the title track and first single taken from his upcoming debut album, due July 30th (UK iTunes) on Deconstruction/Sony Music.  It's hard to describe his vocal style because it's so unique and original, but I do hear little bits of James Blunt and James Morrison mixed with some Jamie Scott (Graffiti6), Maverick Sabre and Alex Clare.  Murray James' voice is chock-full of honey-coated soul and steeped in down & dirty, gritty folk/rock.  I don't know much about this guy, but if this is any indication of what the rest of the album sounds like, he's going to be HUGE.

[Review] Regina Spektor - All The Rowboats

Regina Spektor All The Rowboats

I, like the majority of America, fell in love with singer/songwriter Regina Spektor after hearing "Fidelity," from her 2006 album Begin To Hope.  I'm not sure if it was the song's appearance on a popular TV show like Grey's Anatomy, or perhaps in a commercial but as soon as it played for the first time, I couldn't get enough.  Spektor's voice, while not all that powerful, is filled-to-the-brim with CHARACTER.  As a female singer, without a big, powerful voice and lots of range, you had better hope your voice has got CHARACTER, because otherwise you've got nothing.  Regina Spektor's voice has got character for days, and not only that! Regina Spektor is a poet.  Her gift and talent as a songwriter is IMMENSE.  No one knows the character of her voice better than she does, which in turn enables her to craft the perfect vehicle and for Regina Spektor, that perfect vehicle was "Fidelity."
