Robyn and Neneh Cherry stick it to the man in new ‘Out of the Black’ video

Robyn and Neneh Cherry stick it to the man in new ‘Out of the Black’ video
Between Robyn declaring “Don't F*cking Tell Me What to Do" on 2010’s “Body Talk” and Neneh Cherry’s 1988 hit “Buffalo Stance,” it should be clear that you don’t want to mess with these Swedish pop divas. In the new video for their song “Out of the Black,” the duo prowls an urban jungle over a collage of Occupy movement imagery. The synth-driven anthem pairs Cherry’s soulful vocals and Robyn’s high-pitched coo with assertive beats courtesy of Four Tet and electronic duo RocketNumberNine. The Dario Vigorito-directed video plays up the dark chaos in the song through rapid-fire images, which include footage of protests, the stock market and men in suits. Robyn and Cherry essentially float through this bleak collage, looking ready for anything in their bright-colored rain slickers. “Out of the Black” is off Cherry’s new album “Blank Project,” her first solo effort since 1996's “Man.

Robyn returns with Neneh Cherry duet ‘Out of the Black’

  • Hitfix
It’s been four years since Robyn’s “Body Talk Pt. 1 and 2,” but 2014 is off to a promising start for fans of the Swedish pop star. Today Robyn and fellow Swede Neneh Cherry released their new duet "Out of the Black,” the lead single off Cherry’s album “Blank Project” (out Feb. 25). Listen below. The new album is Cherry’s first in 16 years and pairs the "Buffalo Stance" singer with producer Four Tet and electronic duo RocketNumberNine. Cherry recently told Pitchfork that she’d wanted to work with Robyn for some time. “Robyn and I had been talking about...

Did These Critics Go Too Far?

Did These Critics Go Too Far?
As this week comes to a close, it seems the newest batch of music and movies have proved successful in motivating a new roll of disappointing reviews.

Mika's third album "The Origin of Love" left the critics a little bored with his predictable pop while Boys Noize's "Out Of The Black" and Donald Fagen's "Sunken Condos" were both deemed as undeveloped. Trey Anastasio's "Traveler" received more positive reviews, but it seems the Phish frontman has some room for growth in the solo act department.

At the cinema, critics felt underwhelmed at the hilariously off-putting "Alex Cross," while "Paranormal Activity 4" offered just another stock horror movie experience. "Nobody Walks" and "The First Time" were rated equally uninspiring.

We have collected some of the more cranky reviews for the week in the gallery below. Were these critics on target or too tough? Let us know what you think in the comments section.

Song Of The Day: Boys Noize's 'Ich R U' music video is robot vs. nature

Song Of The Day: Boys Noize's 'Ich R U' music video is robot vs. nature
We are becoming our computers. Our information becomes us. And nature will destroy us in retort. That's what I'll take away from the partially animated music video to Boys Noize's "Ich R U," which I've now watched no fewer than 13 times. It's culled from the electronica act's third album "Out of the Black," which was released on Tuesday (Oct. 16). The track is the more "put-together" of theirs, but that doesn't mean its not reflective of the whole set. It bangs and bruises with the rest. Here are Boys Noize's worldwide tour dates: 10/09 - Edinburgh @ HMV Picturehouse 10/12...

Melanie Griffith Joins The Grief Tourist

Melanie Griffith starring in The Grief Tourist Vision Entertainment Group, which recently announced its partnership with Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions to produce The Grief Tourist, has added Golden Globe-winning actress and Oscar nominee Melanie Griffith to its already impressive cast. Directed by Suri Krishnamma (A Man of No Importance and New Year's Day), The Grief Tourist is currently in production for a release next year.

The Grief Tourist centers on a disturbed and troubled man whose fascination with serial killers leads him and the audience on a horrific and menacing journey through his obsessive and twisted mind as he retraces their footsteps. Possibly best known for her Oscar-nominated role as Tess McGill in Working Girl, Griffith is one of America's most-recognizable actresses, thanks in part to iconic turns in Something Wild, Body Double, Born Yesterday, Crazy in Alabama and Cecil B. Demented. She is currently in production on Nick Cassavetes' drama Yellow,

John Landis Developing Biopic About 'Mad' Founder Bill Gaines

Filmmaker John Landis must be mounting quite a directorial comeback, as he not only has the upcoming comedy Burke & Hare in the works, but Deadline says he also has another biopic about EC Comics publisher and co-creator Bill Gaines, who was also one of the founders of Mad magazine. Landis is currently lining up financing for the film following Burke & Hare (but no assurances that this will be his very next project). Apparently the script for this is titled Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines and was written by Joel Eisenberg, of only Out of the Black and Hollywood Vampyr previously. Sounds like it could be interesting. Gaines was a published who was driven out of the comic book business in the 1950s by "morality policers" after his unapologetic testimony before a U.S. Senate subcommittee investigating juvenile delinquency. In turn, he started Mad as a "satirical magazine which specialized in

Gaines' life rights booked by Eisenberg

Joel Eisenberg and his Iron Mountain Media have picked up the life rights to renowned publisher William M. Gaines to co-produce a biopic based on the life of the man who was behind EC Comics' Tales From the Crypt and Mad magazine.

"Ghoulishly Yours, William M. Gaines," which is being scripted by Eisenberg, will revolve around the banding together of an anti-establishment group of comic book creators, led by a reluctant Gaines, as they produce their controversial yet hugely popular line of comic books like Crypt, which later led Gaines to face Senate subcommittee hearings over accusations of perpetuating juvenile delinquency.

Eisenberg wrote the indie thriller Out of the Black and wrote and produced the goth thriller Hollywood Vampyr.
