Well this is glorious. I just want to go on a long drive in the sunshine along the coast, listening to this on repeat. But alas, our North London office will have to suffice
WE’RE STREAMING KAREN O’S SOLO ALBUM BEFORE ITS RELEASE NEXT WEEK
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman releases her first solo record on Monday 8 September (UK) and Tuesday 9 September (US) next week, and it’s a collection of lo-fi lovesick musings.
We’ve already posted Rapt, its first single, and you can hear the rest of Crush Songs on our music blog now. Warning: if you’re fresh out of a breakup or something, have tissues at the ready.
I think I’m a wee bit in love with Iggy Azalea.
I mean she is a total babe, and isn’t afraid to show it, but the fact that she is so bloody talented… I really hope she’s set to be the superwoman of hip hop that she deserves to be.
Her lyrics and rhymes are tight, the production is bassy and grimey. She acts like the boss because for all intensive purposes, she is bossing it! Being a girl, let alone a white girl, in the in scene- the girl has serious balls.
It’s so inspiritng. She’s not shy or retiring. She’s hard and in your face without being arrogant and intrusive in interviews. She is herself and doesn’t apologise for being so.
Basically, what I’m saying is, I want to be Iggy Azalea.
I think I should just accept now that a)I can’t rap b) my ass/waist combo is never going to be that phenomenal.
Now take a few minutes out of your day to appreciate this awe inspiring lady.
