Dragonette played at the Just For Laughs Theater in Montreal last night as a part of their Mating Season Tour. 2 groups opened for them, Sweet Thing and the fierceness that is Fritz Helder & The Phantoms. I picked up their CD after the performance because they were AMAZING and like nothing I’ve ever seen. The best way to describe them is; the Black Eyed Peas gone Electro-fabulous fronted by Tyra Banks in drag bearing a Key-tar. Hot.
Funny enough, I’ve seen Fritz Helder perform before, but during Nelly Furtado’s world tour. He was her choreographer (I believe) and he danced during the Canadian leg of Nelly’s tour. Pastel Super Nova (the chick in the group) has been in many of Nelly’s music videos such as Do It, where you can see her right at the beginning. Nelly F is so tight with the group, that she made a cameo appearance in their new music video for Making A Scene. Check out more of the group on their MySpace page, or on FritzHelder.com. I’ve posted a few must-haves from their debut album, ironically called Greatest Hits, but pick up the album if you like it because it’s a solid one, complete with intros and interludes.
Here are some wonderful remixes to add the catalogue. The Nelly Furtado is old, the Timbaland is new and the Bumblebeez is right in the middle. Be sure to check out their I Want Your Soul and Salmon Dance remixes below. They are key.
Bajofondo is back with their second album entitled Mar Dulce. They managed to continue with their style, but this album is in no way the same as their first. Nelly Furtado, Elvis Costello and other artists have all contributed their voices to this album, and it’s truly spectacular. The first track Grand Guignol, is a mixture of Disco and Tango with a strong, almost House-like, baseline. It’s very unique. Pick up the Nelly Furtado track if your a fan of her voice, and if you enjoy it definitely download the rest as well 🙂
