Yet Another Year In America July 22, July 29, and August 5, 2010
Special back-from-vacation edition. And while we were gone, "Teach Me How To Dougie" slowly kept climbing, and climbing, and climbing, building a constituency, and finally, after two-and-a-half months on the chart, breaking into the top 40.

Meanwhile, the Band Perry are at 55 (and at number 23 on the Country chart, and at number 1 on the Huh? What? chart).

Pink Dollaz
In about 25 minutes of my listening Pink Dollaz has become one of my favorite groups of the year. H/t Lex, who calls them "terrific jerk ho-rap" ("jerk" being the name of the genre, or at least of the dance, also called "jerkin'").

Here's their MySpace, though I prefer some of the tracks streamed on YouTube. E.g. "Lap Dance," where the Dollaz adopt a sultry deadpan like Amil's for the rap, brattiness for the chorus. Meanwhile, as beats go big and slow, blips trickle from the faucet into the atmosphere.

Cool Jerks
Jadakiss discovers the Jerk, is impressed.

How to jerk instructional videos are here.

Here's "We Jerkin":

Another Year In America June 25, 2009
While "Boom Boom Pow"'s electro strangeness holds its grip on the top spot, an electro-hip-hop sk8er crossover genre crashes the Top 40 for the first time. Holy flash, the new is actually new, even if it cops moves from old futurism.

Background becomes foreground
Wonder Girls to tour U.S. with Jonas Brothers this summer (says UPI):

Seem like a variation on NY-Miami 1988, which I think is a good thing.
