Captain: Keep An Open Mind:
The return of UK's Captain with the first single from their sophomore album. I flipped for their 2006 Trevor Horn-produced debut, This Is Hazelville, but I've been wary about the new "rockier" CD. This track retains their poppy sense of melody and smart arrangements, though the video redefines herky-jerky.
Adele: Cold Shoulder:
XL wisely releases the jaunty Mark Ronson-produced Cold Shoulder, but gives it a sort of static video. I think it would benefit from some action, rather than just quick edits. Adele's lipsyncing reminds me a bit of a drag queen though: she's tryin' too hard with those big painted lips!
The Teenagers Love No:
Over the top Little Darlings-esque teen slutfest. Check out the guy at :45 with the lollipop! Concept? French kids with oral fixations run amok in a roller rink? It's very Larry Clark/Terry Richardson (NSFW), if you get those references, but it was directed by a woman named Caroline London.
