what can I say about last week? I was busy. The rest comes with stats. :P
Last week in covers:
> La Roux : new album alert. Spoiler: it’s still 80s sound.
> Bright Light Bright Light : new album alert. A bit too cheesy, if you ask me.
> Nicki Minaj : silly party tunes alert. I still like “Automatic”. :)
> Lady Gaga : party playlist research. And yes, I chose a song from ARTPOP.
> Miley Cyrus : hm, I’m still a bit interested in “Bangerz”, which I’ve never listened to completely.
> Paul Thomas Saunders : this music has become an essential part of my playlists. :)
Most played artists:
> deadmau5 : new album alert. “while(1<2)” is an odd album title. The tracks vary from electro to pop, and overall it’s okay. I guess fans should be pleased.
> MAGIC! : reggae pop for the new century. Well, I expected a bit more from the new album.
> Depeche Mode : I’m about to get into DM classics - especially the album “Music For The Masses”.
Most played tracks:
> Any Which Way (7th Heaven Radio Edit) : this is part of some kinf of research for a party playlist. I found a few remixes that are quite joyful. :)
> Blink-182 are working on a new album, which would be their 7th.
> Clean Bandit did a choice with his new single “Come Over” (feat. Stylo G), because I think it’s one of the best track from his album “New Eyes”. And the new video is as crazy as the song. It could actually come from the 1990s.
> You don’t need to be a big fan of Train to enjoy their new video “Angel In Blue Jeans”. Thanks to actor Danny Trejo, this short film looks like an scene from a Machete film.
> Röyksopp & Robyn’s collaboration continues with a new video for “Do It Again”. Unfortunately the clip doesn’t really live up to the song.
> Broods might be a band to look out for. Their new video “Mother & Father” looks quite trendy.
> Lykke Li’s new video “Gunshot” turned out to be okay, but if you want something exceptional - try the Paul Thomas Saunders Remix of this very song on Soundcloud.
New in the German charts:
 Nobody to Love : wow, the sample from a Kanye West song is now a summer hit. Who would have thought?
