Icona Pop - This Is... Icona Pop (Style Of Eye DJ Mix)

"We could do this all night"

So, this'll be my last post for a couple of weeks because I'm going on vacation. I may pop in from time to time if something really demands to be featured, but I probably won't be back until Monday the 23rd (rejuvenated and hopefully with an armful of awesome new music). For now, I'll leave you with an epic medley/remix from an album that will be out soon after I return. Well, most of it's out already in foreign markets... but anyway, I love this medley. It's Icona Pop!

Chaz McKinney - While We're Young

"Money can't buy back the youth of your life"

It's rare to find an independent artist making big pop music with glossy, intricate production. I get hundreds of emails a week offering soundcloud links to music, and actually this guys never sent an email. I just happened to stumble across his music. I was instantly floored. This is my kind of stuff. In his own words, Chaz's sound is: "intelligent pop music for the masses, built on a strong foundation of 70's experimentalism, 80's rock, 90's pop, and 2000's sensibilities." In other words, exactly what I'm looking for. He did a cover of an unreleased Lady Gaga track, which brought him some attention, but he also lists artists like Michael Jackson, Bowie and Queen among his influences. Honestly, I can hear bits of each of those in the music. Chaz is operating out of Nashville, which isn't exactly what I'd call a pop haven. It makes him even more interesting. Best of all, his new EP is available to download for FREE. I haven't listened to it yet, as I'm waiting to bring it on vacation (more on that tomorrow...). The track I'm highlighting today is from his previous EP. It's a cover of a song by British band Pegasus Bridge. It's incredibly bombastic.

G-Dragon - Coup D'Etat

Freaking hell. I knew there was a reason I was obsessed with this guy. I've raved about how G-Dragon is the future of pop before, and I think this video only cements it. I'm not sure I've seen a more visually striking music video this year. Sure, the song's not his absolute best, but my god he's an innovator. I don't think I need to say much more. Just watch.
