Charisma.com is a badass (“badass” is an over-used term, but it fits here.) electro/hip-hop hybrid duo that will rock your socks. Their song “Hate” is a catchy jam that I just can’t out of my head, and their self-titled debut album backs up the goods and proves they’re not a flash in the pan.
Here’s the pv for “Hate”, which you will love…
A little bit of sad news. The lovely dreampop band Asobi Seksu announced on their FB page that they’re “saying goodbye for the forseeable future“…
On a more positive note, they didn’t use the term “break up” and the announcement leaves open the possibility that they may come back together one day in the future.
They leave behind four albums of gorgeous music, along with a bunch of singles and compilation appearances. That’s a pretty nice legacy I’d say.
Thanks for the music, Asobi, see you again one day!

South Korea’s latest girl-group sensation Crayon Pop are ready to take over the world! They’ve just launched a whole new “Global Version” PV for their incredibly popular insta-classic single “Bar Bar Bar”.
Fans and critics alike have been declaring these five girls to be the next PSY-style pop-culture meme to catch on everywhere, and in this video, they have a little fun with that comparison….
I have to say, as much as I love this song, I’m looking forward to these young women moving forward with some other tunes. Aside from their very fun sense of humor, they’re five quite talented ladies, and they’ve got great songs like “Bing Bing” and “Saturday Night” that deserve to be heard.
Here’s hoping for an even brighter future for Crayon Pop!
