This Week’s Friday Tunage: Lou Van – ‘My Love’

Hey everyone, and happy Friday!

Who’s excited for the weekend? Because I know I am! And what better way to kick off your weekend than by listening to an absolute TUNE of a song.

My pick this week to give you that Friday feeling is Lou Van – ‘My Love’ (below). I discovered this track whilst listening to a ‘Massive Dance Hits’ playlist on Spotify, and it didn’t disappoint me, as it led me straight to this happy little track.

The perfect dancefloor beat, and catchy baseline will have you moving at your desk and thinking about all those tequilas you’ll be drinking later.

You can check out more of Lou’s tunage array on his Soundcloud here.

Once again, happy Friday, have a good one people!

So Dan Humphrey is in a band…

mothxr-bandSo I have been meaning to write this post for ages ever since I saw a photo posted on Instagram of Penn Badgely a.k.a. Dan Humprey from Gossip Girl is in a band.

At first I just thought that the guy just looked like him, but no, it was definitely ol’ lonely boy once I checked.

The actor is, I guess, now trying his hand making it in the music biz after revealing himself to be GG herself (still weird) as the show came to its end back in 2012.

The band is called Mothxr and they are actually really, really good. I’ve been listening to them over the weekend, and can honestly say they I enjoyed their music from the first play.

It’s cool, chilled-out, and quite sexy. Just like Penn himself I guess.

Checking out the band’s Instagram page it’s obvious that Penn is now converting to a more dirty rocker vibe than his Mr Humphrey character, and it’s clear he’s trying to be taken seriously as a musician.

With the songs I’ve heard, I do think that he’s really talented, and the band deserve success. However, I don’t know quite how he’ll ever been taken totally seriously as a ‘rawk god’ after his time in GG.

But I do wish him well & I will definitely be listening to the band, and even checking them out live if I ever get the chance.

Check out my favourite track of theirs ‘Victim’ below, and go to their website for more.

Haim performing Beyonce’s ‘XO’ will make your day better

I absolutely love Haim and I absolutely love Beyonce, so what better than a mash-up of the two?

The three LA sisters performed Queen B’s ‘XO’ for Radio 1’s Fearne Cotton in the live lounge this week and it didn’t disappoint.

I’m even more excited about the performance considering I’m seeing them live next month in Brixton! I really hope they perform this again or do some other covers as I love it when bands do that.

As well as the performance, Haim have also debuted the video for new release ‘If I Could Change Your Mind’ this week. You can watch the video (which comes complete with dance routines!) on Yotube here.

Are you a big fan of Haim too – if so let me know!
