Music Mo'nday: Feb. 6
Spin, spin, sugar.

Lets check out the latest video yays for the gays.
"Andrew In Drag" - Magnetic Fields
Gay Place favorite Stephen Merrit returns with a brawny, clever ode to dudes who walk on the wild side. It's catchy as hell, and it's refreshing to hear them without recording gimmicks or sounding overly fey.
"Bad Girls" - M.I.A.
Maya rips off your weave, gives millions the finger, and you love it. She runs the house, beeeeeeeyotch.
"I Find U Freeky" - Die Antwoord
Try not foaming at the mouth with this manic, silly bite of audio rabies.
"Hi" - Xiu Xiu
So many artists try so hard to be subversive these days, but Jamie Stewart fucks them all in the … you know … and then writes an album about it. If you like Xiu Xiu, say hi.
"Big Mouth" - Santigold
For Santigold to strike again with a video in the same span as all these other poop tarts is pretty ballsy. She earns her right to be part of the pop conversation with her bouncey, Gaga-hating rave starter.
Hood - Perfume Genius
Mike Haderas levitates out of the reverb fog to deliver a spare, affecting torch song about hurt people hurting people. Watch him snuggle up to a porn star.
Give Me All Your Luvin' - Madonna (Featuring Nicki Minaj & M.I.A.)
Vadge is back with a cute trifle of a comeback single. She used to take your luvin' by force but now she politely asks. Minus points for the pointless tacking on of Nicki and M.I.A. for street cred.
