What's up, bb? This is Kim Jong Un's haircut. As u may have heard, Kim has decreed that every bro has 2 adopt his Macklemore inspired side shave as part of his ongoing quest 2 make North Korea the most hipster country of 2k14. Forget Portland, the dream of the 90s is alive in Pyongyang. Kim completes his hipster style with a pair of Beats (a gift from Dennis Rodman <3) and this week's Best of Indie, Electro, PopSmut and Chill Out by his fav blog, BitCandy (Pitchfork is 2 arty 4 Kim).




best of indie

“Ugh, honestly, I don't think I'd be able to make it through Monday mornings if it wasn't for the top indie bands that keep me from malfunctioning! That, and my subscription to Vogue magazine. Hmm, on second thoughts, maybe it's time to cancel that... Anyways, thanks to the Curators who helped out with this week's picks from Lykke Li, Moby, Banks and many more. If you think you've got what it takes to be a Curator, then sign up here (read more...)”

But I'm not here to tell you what you already know. I'm here to let you in on the top pop alternative pop songs of the week that won our tiny little hearts over. In other news, Chris Martin is single again, yeahy!!! Perhaps his music will no longer sound like a painful ear enema. Crap, let's quickly get through this week's picks before my ADD gets the best of me (read more...)”



best chill out

“And the tears come streaming down your face. When you lose something you can't replace. When you love someone, but it goes to waste. Could it be worse? Lights will guide you home. And ignite your bones. I will try to fix you...with this week's best chill out music. Thanks to the Curators who helped me out with today's pickings from London Grammar, The Acid, Ásgeir and more.

That's it 4 this week's Best of Indie, Electro, PopSmut and Chill Out, but BitCandy is back on Monday 4 even more. If u think u've got what it takes 2 contribute 2 any of BitCandy's weekly roundups, then go and sign up 2 be a Curator. Kim is going 2 sign up this afternoon, but he's currently busy surfing Viagogo trying 2 get last minute tickets 2 Coachella. Even though Reflektor was 2 disco 4 Kim, he's a huge Arcade Fire fan (and would love 2 talk side shaves with Win Butler).

Love Kim Jong Un's haircut xXx

About Jess Grant

When Jess Grant isn't writing on music, she can be found playing it – on her guitar, on her ukulele, and on her recently acquired mandolin. Playing it hideously, she ought to add. Jess also studies. She studies the English language, to be precise. Jess is currently on her way to a degree in the subject, and enjoys starting and never finishing novels, screenplays, and poetry in her spare time. She also likes dogs. Lots of dogs.
