Rich Girls + The Twelves

16 03 2009

In honor of Gossip Girl coming back on (finally!)..we have Donald Cumming’s (of The Virgins) attempt to verbally slay snobby Upper Eastsiders and the like, as remixed by The Twelves who give the song just the kick it needs.

I love The Twelves – they’ve really mastered the art of the subtle disco mix. Look, now you can even dance to a semi-gloomy Radiohead tune, but not feel like club kid extraordinaire. Ahh delicious balance.

Last Night on Gossip Girl…

3 02 2009

Last night’s episode of Gossip Girl featured a song by one of my favorite new acts from 2008 – Does It Offend You, Yeah? It comes on at the end when Lonely Boy and the annoying as hell teacher hook up, making them both seem way more BA than they really are. [Side note – I really love the NYMag recaps.]

If that didn’t sit well with you, try this more retro number:

Does It Offend You, Yeah? – Dawn of the Dead // download [mediafire]

Seems like critics were pretty lukewarm on the band’s debut effort (released March 2008), but I would definitely rank it among my tops for the year – an awesome blend of electro-punk/80s/dance.
