So all our favorite girls sent us new videos in the past 48 hours or so. Only Avril's sucks, but M.I.A.'s video for "Boyz" and the aforementioned David Lee Roth homage by Amanda Palmer are both so awesome we kind of didn't even notice. (Plus, we're still holding out hope on those rumors of a video for the Lil Mama remix of "Girlfriend." Maybe they should just use this one.)
Holy fuck, wait till you see Maya's makeover. She went all fucking Salt N Pepa and shit. And her new website is so insane that people who don't even know who the fuck she is are forwarding it to us with "wear sunglasses" alerts. Kala now has artwork and an August 21 release date in the US, by which time we expect to have been listening to it all summer, basically.
Dresden Dolls, "Shores of California" (click HERE for the making-of)
Avril Lavigne, "When You're Gone"
