Adorable Memphis boy-girl pop act Magic Kids has a new single entitled “Superball”. The song’s glowing, playful sound derives from a sunshiney Beach Boys melody and an ‘80s video game soundtrack. “Superball” will come out as part of a split 7” release off Fat Possum.  Hear “Superball” now on the Magic Kids’ MySpace.

“Treeship” is a spellbinding 22-minute symphony imbued in a mysterious synth-pop universe. Virtual troubadour Dayve Hawk created and produced the track under the moniker Memory Tapes. Memory Tapes is a hybrid of Hawk’s other personae, Memory Cassette and Weird Tapes. “Treeship” is a bonus track on Memory Tapes’ full length album Seek Magic, but Hawk generously posted “Treeship” on his blog in all its enchanting glory.

Here’s a new pop-candy video from the ever-hip Uffie. The song is not new (released in 2008), but the video is, as is the Mirwais remix. Full of sun-dappled polyester scenes and primary-colored legs in kaleidoscope, this video promises to please the masses.

Datarock’s new video for “The Pretender” (from Red) was inspired by John Carpenter’s 1988 Roddy Piper flick, They Live. If we’re lucky, the next one will be based on Big Trouble in Little China.
