Watch Charli XCX and Icona Pop Reunite in New York City

During last night’s annual amfAR gala at New York City’s posh Cipriani Wall Street, Charli XCX and Icona Pop delivered solo performances before reuniting for the rare collaborative rendition of their 2012 hit, “I Love It.” Charli didn’t hold back, dancing to the mega anthem in a full-on evening gown, while Icona Pop jammed along. Watch below.

“I Love It” was Icona Pop and Charli XCX’s first US hit, peaking at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100 . In July 2013, over a year after it was released elsewhere, the song charted at number 1 on the UK Singles chart. It has gone on to sell 4.3 million certified downloads.

Couples That Listen To Music Together Have 66% More Sex

You will have more sex. You will be happier. All thanks to music.

Through a research partner, smart speaker company Sonos and Apple polled 30,000 music listeners about the effects that music has on their lives. The researchers then conducted an experiment in 30 homes throughout the world. For one week, the members of each household didn’t listen to any music out loud. The following week, they did. And the researchers rigged up each home to observe what happened when the music started playing throughout the home. Families and housemates were free to put on whatever music they wanted whenever they wanted.

When music is playing at home, people become physically closer. The average distance between household members decreased by 12% during the in-home study. In the U.S., housemates (usually family members), spent four and a half more hours together with music playing than without it. With music on, people were 33% more likely to cook together and 85% more likely to invite people over. They were 15% more likely to laugh together and 18% more likely to utter the words “I love you.” Additionally, couples reported 66% more intimacy when music is playing. And indeed, the in-home experiment found couples spending 37% more “awake time” in bed.

Vinyl Revival: New Pressing Plant Speedens Up Vinyl Record Process

With vinyl sales and the demand for production continuing to surge, it was only a matter of time until the technology to press records was improved. According to Nielsen’s year end report for the 12-month period of December 30, 2013 through December 30, 2014, Vinyl LPs showed “record-setting strength” with 9.2 million sales. In addition, it has been the ninth consecutive year that vinyl has shown growth, and it now comprises 6% of all physical album sales.

Canadian company, Viryl Technologies, has announced its aim to develop a high-speed, fully automated machine that is set to revolutionize the vinyl process. Chad Brown, Viryl’s chief executive officer, told the Globe and Mail.

“The idea is to help the industry get rid of its own bottlenecks. We’re going to collect all this dark information that’s never been known in record pressing before,” he says of the data-driven manufacturing process. Nozzle pressure, temperature, all this data that’s necessary to actually make a perfect record. In the fifties and sixties, they didn’t have this technology.”

Viryl has said to have close to a hundred sales leads, and will be hoping to revolutionise the industry by closing these deals, with each press costing a reported $160,000 USD and set to start shipping this year.

The OK Go crew (Damian Kulash, Jr., Timothy Nordwind, Andy Ross, Dan Konopka) piled into a S7 plane that creates a zero gravity environment allowing them perform all kinds of crazy floating stunts involving candy, disco balls, and paint flying through the air.

What you are about to see is real,” the video’s disclaimer warns. “We shot this in zero gravity, in an actual plane, in the sky. There are no wires or green screen.” Watch the awesome video below and check out the behind the scenes footage while you’re at it.
