PLAYLIST: DOOO IT!
It was Miley’s week (what with the VMA’s performance and all) and her life seems to have taken on shades of a massive performance art rebellion against all that Disney ever wanted her to be, so we’re starting with her new song “Dooo It!” We included some old favorites from Phoenix and Elvis Costello because it just felt right, and a duet by Peaches and Iggy Pop from the early naughts that seemed somehow to presage the current androgyn-glam moment in fashion. There’s a new track from Peter Bjorn and John, Dr. Dre and Carly Rae Jepsen, a psychedelic hit from Empress Of, Lana Del Rey and Childish Gambino, followed by David Bowie, Drake, and U.S. Presidential Candidate Kanye West, who must be the first person to mention Hedi Slimane in a rap song. Close with Jarvis Cocker whose sexy bespectacled style we’ve been thinking about with the new Gucci fall/winter 2015-16 collection. Don’t read too much into things, Cocker reminds us on “I Never Said I was Deep.”
