HAIM, that sister band that has been infecting the airwaves with their catchy debut single The Wire for the past few months, have released a music video for their new single If I Could Change Your Mind. As you can see in the video embedded above, the sisters (Este Arielle, Danielle Sari and Alana Mychal) are out to prove that they can do more than just sing and player their instruments … they can also dance choreography with the best of them. Honestly, I’m not the biggest HAIM fan (mostly because they sound too much like Amy Grant for my liking) but there is something special about this video that appeals to me. Check out the video above and see if it appeals to you as well. Are there any big time HAIM fans out there? What do you think of the ladies’ dancing?
He hates it when his friends become successful
This week Morrissey‘s classic album Your Arsenal has been remastered and rereleased for sale and included with the CD version of the album comes an entire live Moz concert that was filmed at the Shoreline Amphitheater way back on October 31, 1991. Video of his performance of We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful, taken from that live show, has been made available for viewing online and you can do so by clicking the embed above. Your Arsenal is one of my all-time favorite albums so I’m very excited that it has been remasters for rerelease … but I’m MOST interested in getting my hands on the DVD of this live performance from ’91. I was too young to see Morrissey in concert during his hey day (which is why I do my best to see him in as much as I can these days) so I’m really excited that this particular concert has been released. Enjoy this performance of We Hate It … and then get your buns down to your local independent record store and pick up the remastered rerelease of Your Arsenal like a good little Moz fan.

Last night I made my way to the El Rey Theater to see the amazing band Cibo Matto live on stage for the first time since 1998. I heard a few weeks ago that Cibo Matto was releasing a new album and when I found out that they would be playing LA on tour, I knew I had to see them live. Honestly, I had forgotten how great their music was but last night’s show, chock full of their greatest hits and select new songs, not only took me back but reminded me how much I’ve missed them! Click below to see a few photos and a couple of short Instagram videos from the show last night and get a tiny taste of what their live experience is like. More »
Shakira, Blake, Usher and Adam got it Covered
The 6th season of The Voice premiered on NBC last night with singer/songwriters Shakira, Blake Shelton, Usher and Adam Levine sitting in the spinning coaches/judges chairs … and to kick off the festivities, the coaches came out on stage and each performed covers of one another’s songs. Blake, Shakira, Usher and Adam each sang Whenever, Wherever, Boys ‘Round Here, Love Somebody and Without You in just a fun way that I had to share the video with all y’all. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I’m not a big fan of any of the competitive singing reality TV shows but I have to admit that The Voice consistently provides fantastic entertainment not only form its competitors but from the coaches/judges as well. This is a great live performance, I think you’ll enjoy it.

The Most Watched Vevo Clip EVER
Justin Bieber‘s music video for his smash hit single Baby has just been certified by Vevo as its most-watched video EVER with 1 billion views:
@justinbieber’s “Baby” music video has reached 1 BILLION views on @vevo, our most watched clip ever http://vevo.ly/hW8OXO #BabyBillionVEVO
This certification is mind-blowing, yes, but a look at the count tally on the Vevo video page HERE shows no view tally and the number on the You Tube site HERE only shows at present 994,939,965 views. My assumption is that the Vevo site has the views that make up the difference to equal 1 billion. How many times have YOU watched the Baby music video? If you would like to add to the 1,000,000,000,000 view count, you can do so by watching the video embedded above … baby, baby, baby OOOOH!

Songs meant for 'Circus' & 'Britney Jean' and a HOT remix
Ever since Britney Spears put out the KILLER album Blackout, which was mostly produced by the brilliant producer Danja (real name Floyd Nathaniel Hills), fans have been clamoring for more Britney and Danja collaborations. It was rumored that Danja would be producing some of the songs on Britney‘s latest album Britney Jean (the talk was that the album would sound like a Blackout II) but when will.i.am was named the album’s executive producer, that plan got nixed. Today, as a special treat for longtime fans of Britney/Danja, the producer reveals for us 3 demo songs that he worked on for Britney but were never released. Click the embed above to watch video of Danja explaining that one of the songs was intended for Britney‘s Circus album, one song was intended for Britney Jean and the third song is a remix of Hot As Ice. You can hear each of these three songs above and get an idea for what could’ve been had Danja been allowed to produce for Britney again. Danja remains hopeful (as do I) that he will work with Britney again in the future. Hearing these previously unheard demos makes me even more anxious for Brit and Danja to collaborate again.
