Gossip Girl plays good music.

So my brother told me that Gossip Girl used Sebastien Tellier’s La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan’s Mix), in last nights epsiode “Blair Waldorf must Pie!”. I was very impressed to hear that and am now intrigued to watch the show since the music director, Alexandra Patsavas was also the music director for The OC. One my fav shows. The first 2 seasons were golden. Last week Gossip Girls used The Virgins throughout the episode furthering their indie cred.

Sebastien Tellier – La Ritournelle (Mr. Dan’s Mix)

List of every song played on The OC

Do you all remember this song when Ryan sneaks out to sleep with Theresa?
Interpol – The Specialist

Dirty, Sexy, Money is another show I should start watching since my love of my life, Samaire Armstrong is in it. They also played a great track a few episodes ago according to my brother. So many television shows to start watching since Weeds and Curb Your Enthusiasm are done for this season or even forever?!?

Goose – Bring It On

Klaxons go Prog

Klaxons on NME
Klaxons on Drowned in Sound

“We’ve been listening to a lot of European prog music and dubstep and dance and folk. A huge broad variety of things really. There’s one track we’ve been playing in soundcheck, it’s this massive prog opus.”

“We are already working on the next ‘prog doom’ album, we get bored very easily, I think our management wants us to make Thriller meets Dark Side of the Moon for album two.”

MASSIVE PROG OPUS!! PROG DOOM!

Ekler’o’shock is home of a handful of great new French electronic talent that are definitely doing fresh things than their other French peers showing that France’s electronic music scene is going to have some longevity. France is the center of dance at the moment and this label highlights the more experimental/offbeat side off French disco.
Death of French Culture??
I guess all the French intellectuals are too busy dancing.

The Virgins & Poney Poney

The Virgins are your typical downtown hipster band backed by aNYthing, a uber urban hip clothing company with street cred. The Virgins not only have street cred but art world cred, being friends with Ryan McGinley a photographer whose has gained much attention in the art community as well as being friends with Dash Snow, a NYC graffiti artist who is part of the famous oil tycoon family, the De Menils who founded the Rothko Chapel.

That aside The Virgins are way too hip and write way catchy pop songs songs. It is no surprise that WB’s Gossip Girl decided to play their entire EP in one of their episodes. Oh yeah one of their first shows was opening for Patti Smith in Paris. These guys have it made and are going to blow up.

Paris is the hip center of the world right now and here is a band that has been endorsed by the new ambassadors of dance, JUS†ICE. Poney Poney are a pop rock band that have that rough indie garage rock sound with that French pop sensibilty like Phoenix. Xavier from Justice produced a few tracks of theirs which should be interesting to hear once their surface.

The vox on this track remind me of Phoenix
Poney Poney – AM Music

Lifelike & Kris Menace – Discopolis (Alan Braxe Remix)

A great collab between a French Disco House legend and some up and coming talent. Lifelike has been around a while but has remained under the radar. Lifelike has been named dropped by Thomas Bangalter so he has to be something to look out for. Check out So Electric. Lifelike Myspace

Here is my favorite Lifelike track. Some throwback disco pop catchiness goodness.
Lifelike – Running Out
