Britney Accused of Lipsynching, Fans Walk Out, Britney Traumatized
Yahoo reports: Britney Spears has done it again, hitting the headlines during her first Australian tour over a row about lip-synching and a lackluster performance that her tour promoter said had left her "extremely upset."

Australian media reported that fans walked out of the first of Spears' 14 Australian performances that was staged in Perth on Friday after just a few songs, describing it as "boring," "stiff," mimed and lacking interaction with the audience.

But the promoter of Spears' Australian "Circus" tour, her manager and some fans rushed to her defense, saying this savaging has left the U.S. pop singer traumatized. - see what she had to say

Linda Perry Grabs A Little Fish
PR reports: Once in a very long while a band comes along with a sound that is more than just music…it is raw seductive impulse revealed through mesmerizing vocals, raucous guitars and driving drums; this band is Little Fish. Hailing from Oxford, England, Little Fish is comprised of vocalist/guitarist/principal songwriter JuJu, a rail-thin force of nature (think Patti Smith meets PJ Harvey meets Chrissie Hynde), and drummer Nez, the propulsive undercurrent of the band, backed by a Hammond player in their live performance. Little Fish's sound is at once sensual and urgent, yet intimate and haunting.

Recently signed to Linda Perry's Custard label via Universal Motown Records, Little Fish's debut album BAFFLED AND BEAT is set for an early 2010 release. The album was produced by Perry herself, in her Los Angeles studio.

Little Fish is currently on tour in the UK supporting The Eagles Of Death Metal and will finish up a set of dates with Juliette Lewis in December. With a handful of CMJ dates already under their belt, the band will soon be hitting the States to strut their stuff. - go fishing here

Keelay and Zaire Addicts for Real
Audible Treats reports: The original release of Keelay and Zaire's track "Addicts for Real" came with elements of funk and soul. The track was driven by a hip groove on a slapped bass, periodic synth runs and a straight drum section.

With such a strong response to the original, Keelay & Zaire have decided to put together a MYX Music Label All-Star team on its remix, including Tunji, Kam Moye (aka Supastition), Jern Eye, Thurzday (U.N.I.), and Ragen Fykes. Speaking on why they chose to remix this song, Keelay says, "In a lot of the remixes we have been doing the past year we really wanted to bring back the remix culture of the 90's when folks would do a whole new take on a song. We decided to hop in the studio with our band The Park and completely redo the original beat with a much more live feel."

While the official track has yet to be unleashed, the video gives viewers a unique inside peak into the making of a remix, giving a look at each artist laying down their verses over the newly laid live instrumentation. For those who may rarely get to see the behind the scenes work of artists in the studio, this video lets fans check a few of their favorites live and in action. Ridin High is available now via MYX Music Label. - watch it here

Goldspot Mini Tour
PR reports: From New Delhi to New Jersey, Goldspot's sophomore LP, And the Elephant Is Dancing, seamlessly fuses the cross-cultural influences of frontman Siddhartha Khosla's upbringing into an infectious pastiche of indie-pop nuggets. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut, Tally Of The Yes Men, is available now worldwide on iTunes.

Co-produced by Khosla and Beach Boys engineer Jeff Peters, this album has lived in Khosla's mind since he was a child, growing up in his New Jersey home listening to a mix of Bollywood oldies and Western rock bands. "Mohd. Rafi, Michael Stipe of REM, Kishore Kumar, and The Beatles all have inspired me ever since I could sing my first note," Khosla reveals.

While these influences are widely apparent in the 11-song collection, the album also evokes sunny California pop, 1960s Indian films and George Harrison's psychedelia-tinged work. - more on this story

The Joel Dorn Sessions From Leslie Mendelson Set For Release
PR reports: On November 17, 2009 Ryko will release The Joel Dorn Sessions, six songs culled from an early studio session with Leslie Mendelson and Grammy Award winning producer Joel Dorn. Comprised of everlasting covers and original songwriting, this six-song EP harkens back to a classic era which Joel Dorn helped define and which Leslie Mendelson masters so effortlessly.

The legendary jazz and r&b producer Joel Dorn (Apr. 7, 1942 – Dec. 17, 2007) initially heard Mendelson's first self-released solo CD in 2005 and was sufficiently impressed to offer his expertise. Before he passed in 2007, Dorn was instrumental in landing her current recording deal with Ryko, and they worked hand and hand in the studio on these 6 tracks. Leslie went on to record her Ryko debut, Swan Feathers with Rob Mounsey producing.

Together, Dorn and Mendelson created a collection of the pristine songs filled with timeless splendor. Mendelson's stunning song craft and heartfelt lyrics stand out on original songs like "I Won't Tell", "Last Goodbye" and "I Know You Better Than That". And with effervescent soul and pure subtlety, Mendelson and Dorn recreate Rolling Stones' "Waiting On A Friend", George Harrison's "Beware of the Darkness" and The Ronettes' "Be My Baby". - more on this story
