How I gave in to Gossip Girl + The Pretty Reckless

GOSSIP GIRLThe conversation in my head kinda goes like this….”New show Gossip Girl….hmmm. Do I really want to get wrapped up in another potentially addictive Sex and the City?”

Months later….”Wow, lots of people are talking about it. Forget it! I refuse to watch this new pop fluff cheese wiz of a show! I, am a rebel!”

Time passes…..”Maybe I should just watch one episode to see what all the fuss is about.” *searches Netflix and orders season one* *puts dvd in player* *makes popcorn*

“I’m probably not going to even…..OMG THIS SHOW ROCKS!”

So, now you know my secret. The addiction begins! Which is what led me to do the usual crazy fan Google searching. Which is what led me to Taylor Momsen’s band “The Pretty Reckless”.

There are lots of pics of Taylor, not many of “the reckless”. I did find one on their site, which maybe scared me a little.

the pretty recklessAnd below are a couple of videos. One just released of the band live at the Warped Tour in Houston, and the other is the single “Miss Nothing”. Word has it she writes all the songs, sings, and plays guitar on the album. Not bad little Jenny!

HOT TRAX V V Brown

v v brownI’ve been diggin’ the sounds of V V Brown lately, especially her track “Traveling Like the Light”! It’s very reminiscent of Grace Jones style but with her own unique twist. V V is from England and is the oldest of 6 kids. She’s a sexy mix of Puerto Rican and Jamaican and she is just fierce!

Check out her new track in the video below and tell me what you think. If you subscribe by email go directly to Future Hippie to see the video.

HOT TRAX Bat For Lashes

natasha khan bat for lashesOne of my favorite “Nouveau Hippies” right now is Natasha Khan also known as “Bat For Lashes“. Her voice has an ethereal quality and the music is sexy and captivating. She loves to dress up and her favorite things include glitter and peacock feathers….a girl after my own heart!

Here are a couple of videos, the first one is off her debut album called Fur and Gold, and the second one is a Nylon TV interview with Natasha. She has a newer album out called Two Suns which is equally as fierce!

If you subscribe by email and can’t see the videos you can go directly to Future Hippie to check them out. 🙂

HOT TRAX! Django James and the Midnight Squires

Django James and the Midnight SquiresI recently posted about Georgia Jagger, the upcoming superstar model and daughter of Mick Jagger, and found out her boyfriend is Django James. I decided to investigate further to see what he’s about.

I found out that Django is the son of Dave Stewart from The Eurythmics and Siobhan Fahey from the all 80’s girl pop band Bananarama. He has his own band called Django James and The Midnight Squires, that is gaining popularity quite rapidly! Their music is kind of new school punk mixed with pop….but not cheesy pop. I really liked his vocals and think Django and his Squires are on their way to the top!

Here’s a video clip of an interview with Django from Billboard magazine and also a video of one of their tracks called Hurricane. For more pics and tour dates check out their Myspace. If you subscribe by email and can’t see the videos go directly to Future Hippie. Let me know what you guys think. 🙂

Love All Around,
Cara Mia
