WONGIE VIDEO OF THE WEEK: keaton henson - small hands

keaton henson - small hands
 [director joseph mann has really come up with the saddest video i've seen in ages. throw in the heartbreaking vocals of keaton and you've got one of the best creative collaborations at the moment. of course it's all about collaborations for singer/songwriter keaton as he doesn't really perform live and likes to do interviews with illustrations as answers (yes, he's that kind of artist). but thankfully the music speaks for itself. definitely one of the most interesting acts of 2012, i cannot wait to hear his debut album later this year!]

NEW SIGUR ROS!: sigur ros - ekki mukk

sigur ros - ekki mukk
[they're baaaack!!!!]

POP GAL: haley reinhart - free

haley reinhart - free
[one of the few voices from last years american idol that i enjoyed, haley finally gets to showcase solo material taken from her upcoming debut 'listen up!'. though 'free' is a perfectly fine tuned piece of retro comfy pop, it does reek a tad too much of sara bareilles' material (hey there's definitely a massive market for that). hopefully we'll get to hear something more original in the next single.]

WONGIE INDIE POP SONG OF THE WEEK: regina spektor - all the rowboats

regina spektor - all the rowboats
[it's been almost 3 years since we've last heard from regina, but the wait is FINALLY over with this quirky epic (vocal beat boxes yo!). taken from her upcoming album 'what we saw from the cheap seats' the release is actually a collection of old and new material. i can't wait to hear more!]  

NEW CARRIE UNDERWOOD: carrie underwood - good girl

carrie underwood - good girl
[one of the best voices in country music, this 1st single from her forthcoming 'blown away' album initially sounded like a hot mess upon first listen, but it's slowly charmed me with carrie's crazy vocal stylings and interesting song set up (it sure isn't verse chorus verse chorus bridge chorus til end here). i dig!]
