Shoobidoowah


Jet-setters that we are (in spirit!), it seems fitting that it’s been a week for international compilation news. This one hails from Japan (via our label there, Rambling Records), and they have included our electro-swing tune ‘Venus in Hollywood’ on a new release titled ‘Swingin’ Gold – Tribute To The Great Gatsby.’ 


It’s just been made available on iTunes Japan (for those of you with access to that – if you want our track alone it’s internationally on iTunes here). For old-school CD lovers we’ve been informed that there will be a full CD release coming in the Autumn.

Regardless of what you thought of Baz Luhrmann‘s film (looked amazing – waaaaay too long?), there’s no doubt that the 1920′s style it depicted still packs an absolute punch. We love to imagine Daisy and Jay doing the charleston to “Venus…”.  And we’re also pretty thrilled with the fact it’s a nice mix of old and new artists and that our favourites Ella, Eartha and Louis are included – you could say that Sweet Tooth are dancing with the stars on this one ;)


Tracklist:
1 St. James Ballroom (Sepalot Remix) – Alice Francis 
2 Venus In Hollywood – Sweet Tooth 
3 Bad Boy Good Man (Aerophon Mix) – Tape Five 
4 Happy Feet – Buscemi 
5 Woody Woody – Dimie Cat 
6 Hit’em With It High (Alternate Version) – Boogaloo Stu 
7 Tangled Up – Caro Emerald 
8 AAA (Triple A) – Dimie Cat 
9 Shoot Him Down! – Alice Francis 
10 Pink Lullaby – Tape Five 
11 Big Spender – The New Burlesque Roadshow 
12 The Big Blow Out – Henry Mancini 
13 Caravan – Ella Fitzgerald 
14 Beale Street Blues – Eartha Kitt 
15 Sugar – Dirty Honkers 
16 Tail Feather (feat. Youthstar & Erica Guaca) – Smokey Joe & The Kid 
17 Puttin’ On The Ritz (Club Des Belugas Remix) – Club des Belugas 
18 Sway – The Jazz Age Swingers 
19 Hidden – Buscemi & The Michel Bisceglia Ensemble 
20 What A Wonderful World [Club Mix] – Louis Armstrong                       

 
‘Shoobidoowah’ indeed.

oh darlin’

I’ve not posted about our new video for a while – humble apologies to those looking forward to seeing it. Exciting things are afoot in the land of Sweet Tooth, so we’ll have to keep our pretty cards close to our chest for just a little while longer…

In the meantime, I want to cheekily pique your interest (“a tease? Who… me?”) by sharing with you the newest work by Maximilla (one half of the Belles who filmed ‘Venus’).

This “Darlin’” short fashion film, made in collaboration with Lula Magazine’s Leith Clark (as if you couldn’t tell), showcases Orla Kiely‘s Spring 2013 collection, which Kiely states was inspired by “Palm Springs, Slim Aarons, summer resorts from the 1960s, and the pool culture of that time period.”

It makes me wish that the briefest bliss of an ‘Indian Summer’ we just enjoyed in London could be endless. I adore the film’s dreamy, sun-lit playfulness. The music by Erika Spring of Au Revoir Simone is perfect. And if the whole collection could find its way into my wardrobe sometime soon, I’d be most happy indeed.

it’s an office, but not as we know it.

This is too fabulous not to share.

Very soon you’ll get to see her swinging from a ‘Venus’ star – the video’s coming asap :)

I posted this pic on our Facebook and Twitter pages last week, but it’s too great not to share here too (at least until we have the actual video to post – any day now, we promise!).

Bing Crosby, film, I'm so impatient to see the first edit, New York, sweet tooth, trapeze, Venus in Hollywood, video - posted on April 11, 2012 by

would you like to swing on a star?

… carry moon-beams home in a jar?

Would you believe that this hastily snapped iPhone pic is the only shot I managed to take myself at the ‘Venus In Hollywood’ video shoot in New York last week?

It shows the crew only just getting started on the first set, but it gives you a little glimpse (before I was whisked off into hair & makeup and didn’t pick up my phone for another 12 hours!).

~☆~

I can’t look at it without singing this lovely tune (because, yes – they are trapeze hoops being hung, in case you’re wondering!).

venus in… new york.

Further to my recent post re ‘Venus In Hollywood,’ we have some very pleasing news.

At the end of the month I’ll be heading to NYC to shoot a video for the track. It will be directed by Maximilla LukacsSarah Sophie Flicker, who together make up the wonderful Belles of the Black Diamond Field.

The creative treatment they’ve provided is shaping up to brilliant so I couldn’t be more excited.

I’ll let you see their work for yourself – this film was made as a collaboration between Top Shop and my favourite magazine in the world, Lula (of which Sarah Sophie is ‘editor at large’ – a fabulous title if there ever was one).


“Spell” from Maximilla Lukacs on Vimeo.

See more of their work for music and fashion (including ethereal videos for Karen Elson and First Aid Kit) here.

Their aesthetic couldn’t be more appropriate for Sweet Tooth, don’t you agree?

This times nicely with the release of another track from our collaborations project, a dance-floor friendly fidget house remix of ‘Venus’ by Paris-based producer 6u5. This cute video below is a mash-up of burlesque visuals to accompany the remix, painstakingly edited by Deadbug Films (see more of their work on YouTube ‪‬ and Vimeo).
The remix is available as a single via iTunes here. It’s also been included on Wagram Digital’s ‘Electro Swing IV’ compilation by French DJs Bart and Baker, on iTunes and Amazon. And it’s soon to be on their forthcoming release ‘Spirit Of Electro Swing’ (outMarch 19th, 2012).
