    Mashup of the Month

    Not actually a new series we're starting (though we could...volunteers?)

    Just high praise for DJ Lobsterdust (who? anyone?). Well whatever, Lobsterdust killed it on this one.

    Anyway. It's 2 of our favorite ladies--Stevie and Britney. And it's nicely done. The ending is a little abrupt but you can't fault anyone for that.

    Marley's music of 2011

    A collection of songs and albums I found myself listening to this year. Some came out this year, some didn't. All are worth sharing. Here we go.

    Bonnie Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me" (Eff you, Bon Iver). This one is first because I have no idea where else to put it and I just wanted to put it out there that this is a good song by a female artist and Bon Iver is boring. 


    That one Adele song...tried the rest of the She's got the
    love Amy's got the squalor ...

    Speaking of...I've been listening to a fuckton of Amy Winehouse for obvious reasons. RIP Amy, sniffle (unironic sniffle!!). 


    None of the new tori cuz I'm a bad bad aging fangurl...and dont get me started on how Tori is aging. Her face does not look right.


    Britney "I Wanna Go" is Femme Fatale's "Toxic"... actually the whole album is pretty good, even that song that sounds exactly like Supertramp's "Logical Song" is ok.

    Robyn, obviously, but let's not forget this Robyn+ RyeRye remix because it's pretty amazing. (Nothing beats the "Call Your Girlfriend" dance but I fear this is being lost in the shuffle and it shouldn't be)

    The Gaga record because it's perfect in how it is flawed (every song is 3 songs, it's all over the place, the lyrics are really ridiculous and contrived in some places, etc etc... but it's Gaga so it's all forgivable since you can listen to it while working out).

    An illicit copy of the Sleep No More soundtrack including tracks I've named "creepy drone sounds," "entrance music for a film," and "creepy 30s speakeasy" (This version of Peggy Lee's "Why Dont You Do Right" with record crackles in the background=perfection) ...And because they operate in a similar vein, I'm lumping Esben and the Witch into least "Marching Song." (Not so down with the video but just listen.)


    The Throne, straight through twice and only twice, but "N*ggas in Paris" 3 times at the show in Atl
    ("Talk amongst your friends"). Also props to those dudes for slowing it down in the beginning Salem-style.

    Oh Land before she got famous and went to the movies with Katy Perry... whatever I have a picture with her at SXSW 2011 before that happened

    This JoJo Durk remix

    SPF 5K especially this not play it for your parents or even your open-minded aunt....but you should play it at your next dance party

    Honorable mention for Today The Moon, Tomorrow The Sun's "We Were Wild" since I got to see it performed at Cameo in Brooklyn and Star Bar in Atlanta (the day before the video below was made, it's not great but you get the idea).

    2nd honorable mention to Nicki Minaj because I can't put just her verse of "Monster" (again) and this video has her singing with Rihanna near an airplane wreck (weird "Fly"-association but ok) and then fighting ninjas. So, for general weirdness and wigs--kudos to Nicki. Also way to spread out 1 album in 2 years--this song is the 8th single (8th!?) and was released over a year after the first single. Dang.

    And my bfs band, Silent Drape Runners, the most bloggable band ever.


    The Cutest Femme Fatale We Know


    It's no secret that we here at Soldout have a special love-mock relationship with Britney Spears. We love  for its vapidity--or surprising lack thereof--and laugh at the popstar for the same reason. Femme Fatale? Over-produced jams with ridiculous lyrics. Love. Her fear of flying but desire to be a bird? Priceless. Mock...and also love.

    Personally, I've come to think that the woman has lost interest in her pop star career and wants to retire, but she knows her retirement wouldn't be a James Murphy-esque step out of the spotlight into another one, but a true decision to stay home with the kids and the new boyfriend watching Dora the Explorer and giggling. And she's not quite ready to admit that and knows that even if her career has spanned almost 20 years, she's still barely 30. And maybe the latest video is her unwillingness to admit that, judging from her Hello Kitty colored hair extensions and Ke$ha-esque irreverence. 

    However, within the video are so many delightful self-deprecating references that I think she's actually grown up a lot. Unless she's a better actress than I know...and that marquee for Cross Roads 2: Cross Harder is NOT a joke: 

    (Thanks to  Edith Zimmerman at The Hairpin for pointing that out--Easter Egg indeed!)

    So...without counting all of the best moments, here are my faves. Add your own in the comments pls!

    We love BritBrit!

    Oh, this interview with Britney Spears.  So good.

    Damn, Britney. DAAAAAMN.

    Popnography of interviews Britney and asks the things we dont dare.  We're willing to overlook the fact that the title of the piece is "Britney Emails Her Heart Out" and very few of her responses are complete sentences.  The little tidbits (brit-bits) that we get from her are solid gold.  This entertained team Soldout for a solid weekday.  Amazing.  Some key q's and a's below.  (She loves Gaga! Britney, call us!)

    Sadly, we do not think Britney has a Formspring a la Keshadolla.  Too bad. 


    Are there any of your songs that you wish you hadn’t recorded/you don’t really love?
    No. All of my songs are f–ing amazing.

    How is Femme Fatale different from your other albums?
    I think Femme Fatale is my most upbeat and mature album yet.

    Do you listen to your contemporaries’ music?
    Yes. I love Gaga and Rihanna. Rihanna’s "S & M" is awesome. 

    Which song from the last 10 years do you wish you had recorded?
    Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.”

     (sidenote, Marley was not impressed to hear that Brit was jumping on the "domestic abuse is hot" bandwagon...)

    Assuming reincarnation exists, in my next life I’d life to be...
    A bird, so I can fly.

    (and later)

    Do you have any phobias?
    Flying, because I’m not in control.

    As Dr Zachary says, Well, obviously she wants to be in control of her flying :)

    And that, friends, is why we love her.



    nice shoes wanna witch

    Our man Nike 7UP returns to flog the pick-up-line horse that is the new Britney Spears. Presenting the ' 'MTRAPPEDINABODY" remix



    Good shit, right? It adds the direly-needed urgency the original song lacks up 'til that 30 second grime-ass breakdown..and, yes, we are working on combining this with that 30 seconds of genius. Stay tuned.
