Weekly Music Video

Today's video is yea, babe, no way by LANY. They are an American 3 piece band and their music is described as "dream pop". Members are lead singer Paul Klein who plays the keyboard and the guitar as well, Les Priest who also sings and plays the keyboard and guitar and drummer Jake P. Goss.

The group formed in March 2014. In April they uploaded the songs Hot Lights and Walk Away to Soundcloud and released their debut EP Acronyms later that year. (LANY is an acronym for LA to New York). They were anonymous at first because Jake and Les had previously had their own project/duo WRLDS and they wanted their new music to stand alone.

Last December LANY signed to British label Polydor Records and brought out the EP Make Out which contained songs from previous releases. Their first official single WHERE THE HELL ARE MY FRIENDS? was released in March this year. The band also have two other EPs, I Loved You (2015) and kinda (2016).

I saw this video on MTV Rocks last night. I don't watch that channel a lot because it's not really my kind of music (although I do like some gothic and symphonic rock) but I flick through the channels sometimes. I liked the song and thought I'd feature it today. I'd never heard of dream pop before so it was also good to discover a new genre. :)

yea, babe, no way was released this month and is from LANY'S latest EP kinda.

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
