Madonna has obviously let the botox go to her head as she summarizes Kaballah lessons she speaks about but does not practice as she tries desperately to stay relevant by describing her MDNA tour in her own words. (Madonna)

An interview with MNDR, whose album “Feed Me Diamonds” is now out. (Daily Swarm)
On September 21, 2011, Amanda Warner aka MNDR played a very intimate 4 song set at Red Egg in New York City. The event was a fashion party for Court Boutique. She played a few new tracks from her upcoming debut album and the songs are great! The new material is very dancey and the audience was loving it. There were fog machines (hence the smokey picture above), trippy projections and dance grooves for days! I am really looking forward to her record. I spoke with MNDR and she has some exciting news to tell you about in the very near future, so stay tuned to her official website or follow her on Twitter.

After having an amazing 2010, some might rest on their laurels. Not the case for Amanda Warner aka MNDR. In 2010 she saw her solo career take off with her irresistible dance grooves. Uber-producer Mark Ronson recruited MNDR to sing on the worldwide smash “Bang Bang Bang” (along with Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip) and she toured the world as a member of Mark Ronson’s band The Business Int’l. In 2011, MNDR is starting the year off by touring with Chromeo and is offering her new single “Cut Me Out” for free download. You can get the mp3 for free on Green Label Sound’s official website. Thanks MNDR! Looking forward to seeing and hearing more great things to come!
As 2010 draws to a close, I can say that it’s been a good year for music. After seeing literally hundreds of acts this year, it is my duty to share some of my favorites with you. Below see my 13 of my favorite new bands/artists of 2010.
Delphic. If you like New Order, you’ll love Delphic. Check out “Red Lights”
Young Empires. Check out the disco-punk band performing “Against the Wall”
Two Door Cinema Club. The sound on “Something Good Can Work” is very bass heavy, so definitely seek out a cleaner version of this amazing song.
The Rassle. Take a drive, roll the windows down and sing “Born Free” at the top of your lungs! It’s a great experience.
Dan Black. The following clip of “Yours” is performed acoustically, so imagine what the dancey studio version sounds like. Don’t just imagine… find out!
Penguin Prison. If you like pop and soul with guitar, you can’t go wrong with Penguin Prison.
Wild Nothing. If you like The Smiths, you’re going to love Wild Nothing.
MNDR. If you love pre-botox Madonna, MNDR will be your thing. Here’s “Sparrow” and “Fade to Black” performed with Mark Ronson!
JBM. Jesse Marchant’s voice is so beautiful you might find yourself crying. But they’ll be tears of joy.
Hanni El Khatib. Rock and roll is not dead and Hanni El Khatib proves it!
Tame Impala. If you like the Beatles psychedelic era, you’ll love these Australian rockers. Check out “Solitude is Bliss”
Male Bonding. The punk trio from the UK rock. Hard! They are so awesome live too. This is their track “Weird Feelings.”Future Relative. Check out their cover of Bjork’s “Army of Me.”
