New Obsession...The Dolly Rockers - Gold Digger!

I gotta admit, I wasn't sold on these girls when I first heard their first single "Je Suis Une Dolly," in fact it left no impression on me at all! I don't remember it! The name "Dolly Rockers" reminded me of one of those gimmicky pop groups like The Fast Food Rockers. Turns out, I judged too quickly. While their fashion sense could be classified as one part Ginger Spice, two parts street whore...(in a good way)...they definitely bring something fun and interesting to the pop scene.

The new song by The Dolly Rockers...I can't stop listening to it! I've most definitely been "Dolly Rockered." The girls' label, Parlophone is apparently selling this as their debut single, which I think is a smart move as "Gold Digger" is a hot mess, EMPHASIS on the HOT! Sure, they aren't really the best vocalists...doing quite a bit more shouting than actual singing...but who cares! I'm not looking for filler. I'm looking for good, fluffy electro-pop.

The Dolly Rockers - Gold Digger

The group, consisting of Brooke Challinor, Lucie Kay, and Sophie King, first gained some notoriety when they competed together on Simon Fuller's X-Factor back in 2006. Now signed to a major label, they're working on their first album due out sometime later this year. P.S. - I'm even starting to like "Je Suis Une Dolly" now! Curses! I'm easy. Look out for "Gold Digger" remixes from Bimbo Jones, and Superbass. "Je Suis Une Dolly" was also remixed by the Soul Seekerz. "Gold Digger" is out in the UK on August 30th.

New Straight No Chaser EP Out July 30, 2009!

Posted: 24 Jul 2009 08:19 PM PDT

Ahhhhh! So exciting. Back in October of last year I blogged about my favorite A Cappella group, SNC...otherwise known as Straight No Chaser. Being an Indiana University Alumn, I carry a certain sense of pride knowing that these guys walked the same campus that I did and knew some of the same people that I knew.

Straight No Chaser - Holiday Spirits
Since being signed to Atlantic Records, the boys have released a Christmas album last year, Holiday Spirits, performed on the Today Show, Fox & Friends and on TNT's Christmas in Washington. Not only that, but their holiday album became the #1 selling holiday album on both iTunes and Amazon.

While holiday music in the Spring, Summer and Fall normally is enough to drive me insane, I could listen to these boys all day, every day. That being said, I've been anxiously awaiting the
release of some new material. This past January saw the release of "Live Your Life & Flo With Whatever You Like," a slick A Cappella mashup of songs by T.I. & Flo Rida.

Straight No Chaser
After hints of a full length album in the works, news of new material appeared on the official Facebook page and website today. On July 30, their new EP called "Six Pack" will be released including six brand new tracks:

1. Rehab (Amy Winehouse)
2. I'm Yours/Somewhere Over The Rainbow (Jason Mraz/Israel Kamakawiwo'ole)
3. The Man Who Can't Be Moved (The Script)
4. Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours/I Was Made To Love Her (Stevie Wonder)
5. You Send Me (Sam Cooke)
6. Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You (Lauryn Hill)

Now I know A Cappella isn't everyone's cup of tea, but if their hip-hop A Cappella stylings weren't enough to convert you, wait until you here some of these versions. You can listen to a sampler on both the group's MySpace and their official website.

Straight No ChaserI still melt while listening to their rendition of Toto's "Africa." The group also announced via video message that a 60 city U.S. tour is in the works. Dates/locations will be released on August 10th and tickets will go on sale August 14th. If they hit up Boston, I'll be there with some recently converted fans. I.U. Pride!
