WELCOME TO POPISTAN – A BLOG ABOUT EVERYTING POP
Here you will find a wild and nice mixture of stuff from everywhere on the net. My promise to you: It will be POP!
And very important: Don’t try to tell me : ‘THIS AINT POP!’, because i might know and even more important: i might not even care.
So finally it arrived – and it is good – really good.
The opening track is classic – superb production – tiptop brass section – überlovely strings.
I have a direct link for a spin on Spotify for you – here it is.
And while you have a listen read what the boys got to say about it over there.
This is it, Japan has done it again!
Losing their game against Drogba (i had a different result on my list!!!)
And completely confusing me – because:
What is the result of crossbreeding a lolita fetish schoolgirl trio / future-cop stuff / the holy mother mary in the background / bubblegum pop vocals & chorus / 100% 90ies rave hoover-synth-sounds & trashing Slipknot like backing-music?
Answer A: An utterly confused me
Answer B: Babymetal
Answer C: Both!
[Watch!!!] Honestly, I Love the Official Video for GusGus’ Crossfade – Now Here! No Need to Leave or Going to Mexico :-)
Honestly, i have watched GusGus’ new clip for Crossfade too many times by now (that is what other people might say), but Tommy Kha included so many beautiful details that it is a pleasure to listen and watch this for the kazillionth time.
The beautiful thing is i can do it here now, without going to Mexico or Zeit-Online….
Here you go (an me too – again)!:
The track has been our for several days now, but i waited with this post ’til the very second of the kick-off.
The first game of the ’2014 World Cup Brazil’ just started and it could be a wonderful thing if the international football wasn’t ruined by some greedy old men.
As the Poppies say: Reclaim the Game! Funk FIFA!
My personal soundtrack to the 2014 world cup.
And some words by Crabbi himself on SkySports
Happy Birthday to both of them… My go to Hip-Hop choice of the late 80ies!
From time to time you come across stuff on the net that simply blows your mind, the animated classical paintings by Rino Stefano Tagliaferro on vimeo from some months back are an example for something like that.
The idea, the execution and skills, the love for detail – wow.
So now here we have that video again, used for a song by Vicktor Taiwò.
This combination is simpy awesome – before the video was mindblowing – now this is mind-melting – it is one of those clips that simply ate my brain.
Bravo Vicktor!!! Bravissimo Rino!!!
(And because the clip is so beautiful i thought: ahh eff that and embedded it in 720p – no matter what your bandwith might be – SO GO FULLSCREEN DARLING!!!)
