So it’s only been a quick minute since we let the cat out of the bag on this intriguing project between electro pop genii Monarchy and sassy international siren Dita von Teese and here has landed our first taste available as a FREE download.

Re-worked at the hands of London based production team Mighty MouseDisintegration” feeds off of their famed spacey cosmic disco beats to reveal a blast of sensuous Monarchy electro funk lurking beneath the surface.  All to be dressed up further, by a provocative Dita positively purring out her part with seductive allure.

Disintegration” leads from Monarchy’s forthcoming sophomore album and from the first look in to what they have in store for us, I’d pre-emptively say that the outlook on it is likely to be pretty hot stuff.

So, See this wasn’t any old excuse to use that raunchy promo artwork again, but anyway it would be a crime not too - it’s such an eye pleasing look isn’t it!

EQTV – Watch “Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message)” by Dragonette


By Mandy Rogers

These Holiday tunes continue to appear and rather like indulging in a festive eggnog or two, they’ll either bring the merry best, the over emotional slush or the grinch out of you.

Of course, Dragonette can be relied upon to provide a feisty alternative to the traditional seasonal ding-a-dong song and they do so in Christmas break-up tune “Merry Xmas (Says Your Text Message)”. Sketch in a profanity or two and it’s as merry, merry festively un-holy as The Pogues & Kirsty McColls’FairyTale Of New York”.

I can see the reasoning behind this accompanying text speak video, however, I do feel a little short changed by it, I’d have much rather seen Martina bitching it up in angel robes or a sassy santa suit, with a raised sherry glass in one hand and an extended middle finger elevated from the other.

EQTV – Watch “Joy” by Tracey Thorn

It’s not unlike Tracey Thorn to sneak out a festive warbling this time of year and this year is no exception, except she’s seen to it and brought out a full album of wintry sing song “Tinsel And Lights”.

From the above festive selection here’s Tracey singing the Holiday season in, in reflective and nostalgic mood, lending her superb husky whispery-ness to a quaint Christmassy tune “Joy”.

It’s hard not to be swept up in the timeless beauty of this, being that it is such a magical melting Xmasy moment or two.

Furthermore, Tracey invites you to join in the countdown to the big day with her, as she’s fixed up a little advent daily treat, it may not have a choccie lurking behind every door but nonetheless brings an eclectic mix of festive surprises.
