Here it is, a sneak peak of the new Little Boots next single, New In Town.
It's a righteous pop stompper that has us dancing in our office IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY.
You may have spotted some blogs circulating 2 of the remixes of the track, there are more to come (oh yes), but for now please enjoy these:

New In Town - Fred Falke mix

Cash Or Cheque Squad

If your not familiar with rapper Example's work, I suggest you head over to his myspace and take a look as this one man promotion-machine is currently riding high in the Hype Machine chart.
Not content with making music, he's also written and staring in a comedy show on MTV.
Here's a episode of C.O.C.S:


More episodes and their track Takes The Biscuit on the myspace.

Our very own Victoria Boots is on her way back from a triumphant trip to SXSW, where she played no less then 4 shows. The final one - last night - was hosted by Perez Hilton and was finished off by a duet with Kid Cudi, alright.

Here's Stuck On Repeat live at the Fadar party, what a cardy...

Moross Has Got A Thing For Them

Photobucket
The darling of all things geometrically-so-hot-right-now, Kate Moross, was just as spellbound by the latest Metronomy video as we were. Whilst we blogged, she went one step further and created a limited range of tshirts in the video's honor. The shirts have pin badges featuring the lyrics which you can position anywhere you like, just like the bouncing balls in the video. Simply brilliant.
There's even a couple left, which you can snap up here.

Dimaond tours

Marina and her merry band of diamonds headed off out on a whistle stop tour of the UK last week (is 4 dates a enough to be counted as a UK tour? Let's say yes.)
First stop was Sunny Southampton where the Diamonds found themselves lodging in a safari park

Next day it was on to Manchester, unfortunately the PlayStation broke on the journey (don't tell the van hire company)

All hail the Ruby Lounge

Next day was on to Nottingham, the band took the chance to refuel and live like kings on a feast of M&S' Finest picnic selection
Photobucket
Stealth welcomed the Diamonds with open arms

The last day saw the Dimaond mobile roll on into Brizzle where the band celebrated the end of the tour with a rather impressive pyramid

And here's Marina on the way home getting some much needed shut eye

Marina's just announced LOADS more live dates on her myspace

Pop Mathmatics

Those clever fellows over at The Independent have made an attempt to get to the bottom Pop Maths. We especially enjoyed the big 'X' that precedes Giorgio Moroder in Little Boots' equation
