BitCandy's Best Alternative Pop | Week 39 2013
It’s true what God worshiping mothers say: the internets is a dangerous place and can cause all kinds of scary health problems. This morning I stumbled onto Rolling Stone and banged my iPad on my face when I saw the new Chiclets’ spokesperson on the cover of the mag (Miley Cyrus). I need all sorts of cleansing, starting with an ear enema. In case you’re in need of one as well, BitCandy’s PopSmut (aka best of alternative pop) has got you covered with shameless and intoxicating pop treats.
Sky Ferreira - You're Not The One
Sex drugs and murder? Yep, just another typical school night in Sky Ferreira’s life. Miley is all sorts of lame compared to Sky a.k.a authentic hot mess. You’re not a real bad ass until you have an official mug shot.
FMLYBND - Forever
GTFO if you have not heard of the next hot shit to come out of California. ‘Forever’ is the group’s third single and will be part of their first EP coming out on the 28th of September. You know you’re destined for superstardom when you have Mel Gibson, Andy Milinakas, and Demi Moore come to your show.
Zedd - Stay The Night ft. Hayley Williams
Another monster single coming from Zedd featuring one of the hottest redhead ever to exist. Loving the video...I tried mimicking the moves in bed last night, but threw my back out.
Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime (Gigamesh Remix) [Free Download]
Thank you Gigamesh for remixing a classic. It’s the right dose of funk to make my mouth water and my ears cry with joy. Grab your free download by clicking the SoundCloud above.
Icona Pop - All Night (Official Video Edit)
If I were in a pop band, I’d want to be in this pop band, and if I were in Icona Pop’s band I’d be the hottest one. Although to be honest I kinda dig the red head...actually the rugged hottie isn’t so bad, it’s a toss up for me. I think our album review on ‘This Is...Icona Pop’ will help you decide who’s hotter.
Krewella - Enjoy the Ride
Another future #1 Billboard Hot 100 smash. Yes we are putting our necks out on this one.
J. Cole - Crooked Smile ft. TLC
If you aren’t in the mood to shed tears today, skip and proceed to the next track. When drugs are involved innocent victims also pay the price so stay away from Mr. White...Bitch!
pomDeter - Jungle Root Boogie Down (parts 1+2)
A PopSmut post would not be complete if we didn’t have a juicy mashup. Beastie Boys vs. Kool & The Gang, it doesn’t get better than this.
The Killers - Shot At The Night (Audio)
Don’t get your panties all wet kids, but the rumors are true, The Killers and M83 have united to create this gem and it’s heavy on the M83 influence.
Greek Fire - A Real Life
For those of you who believe indie rock is dead, I got news for you: Greek Fire. Yes this track is packed with explosive fire and belching vocals that will make the hairs on your chinny chin chin curl. There’s only one way to listen to this song and that is on full blast while driving through L.A. traffic.
The Colourist - We Won't Go Home
Slowing things down a bit with a mellow end of the summer track from So-Cal’s indie pop band ‘The Colourist.' Check these guys out if you’re into music that makes you want to bum around drunk on a beach somewhere.
Coldplay - Atlas (Hunger Games: Catching Fire)(Lyric)
Welcome back, Coldplay, I missed the sound that made me fall in love with you in the first place. Is anyone else picturing the same thing I am? Jennifer Lawrence in a wet shower scene? Anyone with me on this?
Thats all the pop nastiness that we have for you this week. Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go get the next set of tunage ready for you. If you have any suggestions for next week, drop us a comment below.
