I have seen lots of trailers this year and so far I must say and extol praise for the trailer for “Take Shelter” starring HBO Boardwalk Empires’ Flagellant – Michael Shannon. It is one of the most compelling trailers I have seen.
The album isn’t new (and I am patiently waiting on a followup), but I want to introduce an artist from New Zealand to you. No, I am not talking about the fabulous Zowie or splendid Kimbra but rather, the terrific Ms. Phillipa “Pip” Brown aka Ladyhawke (not the movie, of course). 🙂
Ladyhawke’s sound is refreshing contemporary reboot of the 1980s sound – catchy pop, decent lyrics, and fun layering of rock and electronic.
I got a chance to see Ladyhawke on her first US tour, the Perez Hilton tour, which featured Frankmuzik, Semi-Precious Weapons, and Ida Maria. Though slightly sheepish and nervous, Ms. Brown gave an electrifying performance (which really helped to reinvigorate the crowd after having to suffer through a manic, drunk set by Ida Maria – real lack of respect on her part for her fans and I hope she learned something out of her chaos on that tour). Check out some of Ladyhawke’s music, below.
“Dusk Til Dawn”
Robot X Robot has some major love for the classic monsters, horror, and horror host scene, etc etc.
Two excellent friends of mine involved in the B-scene, Mr. Lobo (Horror Host of Cinema Insomnia) and his co-hort-in-misadventures pursued, Ms. Dixie Dellamorto, have introduced a new and diversified magazine called, “Horror Hosts and Creature Features.”
They describe their mag as “A trade and lifestyle publication for professional creeps and fans alike.”
Like John Waters? Grandpa Munster? Pinup Girls? B-Movies? Classic Monsters? Horror Host personalities? Cool and Creepy Crafts? Then look no further! 🙂
It’s an entertaining romp through the netherworld or cornucopia of the misguided but fun loving, creeptastic underground of entertainment.
