More tracks from Kylie's new album - listen to 30 second clips of every song!!

A new Kylie 'Aphrodite' sampler has emerged, and this time we are treated to 30 second clips of EVERY TRACK on the album.  Surprisingly, there are actually a few more downtempo numbers, not just the high energy club bangers we were led to expect.  And unlike 'X', it sounds like one cohesive project that has a great chance to go down as a defining pop album.  

The album pre-order has been knocking around the top 70 of iTunes' U.S. chart all week, and in the U.K. the single is at number 3, weeks before its release.

N.E.R.D. are back - preview their new video with Nelly Furtado!

N.E.R.D. have been off the scene for a while, so ScopiSat did some nosing around (read: wikipedia-ing) to see what they had been up to. The answer is "nothing particularly interesting" but we did find out that as a band, N.E.R.D. have not been nearly as successful as we assumed. The group has never (!!) had a top 100 Billboard single (excluding dance charts) and while their first two albums went Gold, their last has only sold about 250,000 in the U.S. Then we remembered that N.E.R.D. is actually just a side project and two of the three members are actually THE NEPTUNES who produced EVERY NUMBER ONE HIT in America between 2001 and 2006. So they're doing fine.

Anyway, N.E.R.D. has a new song out with Nelly Furtado and they made a video for it. Here's a preview.

The new album is out Sept 7
