Miike Snow continues to commission videos and remixes for their self-titled debut. Vince Haycock directed the video for Black & Blue, and my pick from the lot of remixes is this one by dubstep ambassador Caspa.

Kid Cudi made a great album. This track was produced by Ratatat and features vocals from MGMT. Watch their performance on Letterman. I think it's the next single. Man on the Moon: The End of Day is in stores.

Jay-Z and Alicia Keys closed off the MTV VMA's last night with their powerful ode to the city that never sleeps, Empire State of Mind. I can't even remember the last time New York had an anthem like this.


Ontario - Ey Shuno


If you haven't caught on to The xx yet, you're in for something special. The dreamy, tender pop compositions on this well-balanced debut has listeners and critics alike shouting hyperboles, and all I can do is concur.
