Five songs for the week of June 21st

Janelle Monae - Cold War
This woman has an album that has enough great songs and incredibly sassy attitude to challenge the Beyoncés of this world. Cold War, an exciting blend of pop, R&B, with a little something more is a great way to showcase Janelle's great, great talent.

Maroon 5 - Misery
Adam Levine's band are back with an immediate smash that should be everywhere in a few weeks. It's kinda nice to have tem back in top form with this really enjoyable pop-rock track. Welcome back!

Scissor Sisters - Any Which Way
Nightwork, the band's new album, which is released on June 28th, is so good that I had a hard time choosing one song. Let's just say that this one is pure Scissters, and more. It has a police siren, fantasticly cool lyrics, and an incredible monologue performed by Ana Matronic. Oh, and it will make you dance in ways you had never imagined.

The Amplifetes - Somebody New
This band is one of the most exciting right now, judging by the great singles they have to offer. This one is a great treat to you pop-loving ears. Now bring on the album, bitches!

Sara Schiralli - Paranoid
Sara is a sweet little thing coming from the UK (she was born in Italy). Her first album Bang Bang (out in September) is a beautiful collection of pop-folk songs which will be perfect for the end of the summer. Remember this name, and this voice, as you will probably hear a lot about this girl soon. Below is the video for the catchy and adorable Paranoid.
