7. MUSIC: Lights, Ellie Goulding and Oh Land, Oh Land
To help wean your iPod off Adele’s 21, check out these new American debuts from two other buzzworthy imports. Oh Land, a Danish performer currently touring with OMD, delivers bright-eyed electro-pop like first single “Sun of a Gun” and summer anthem-ready “We Turn It Up.” Brit Ellie Goulding is a bit more serious, with ethereal electro-folk jams like “Starry-Eyed” and a sweetly stirring cover of Elton John’s “Your Song.”
6. DVD: Every Day
First-time filmmaker Richard Levine mines his experiences as a Nip/Tuck writer and father of a gay son in this slow-boiling drama. Liev Schreiber and Helen Hunt star as a disgruntled TV writer and his stressed wife, but this uneven indie is a must-see for Ezra Miller’s honest portrayal of their newly out son, who challenges his dad by wanting to attend a gay prom. Eddie Izzard also steals scenes as a Ryan Murphy-ish gay producer.
5. MUSIC: “Kiss Kiss,” B. Scott
A self-described “multimedia maven” best known for his flamboyant YouTube rants and outrageous pop culture blog LoveBScott.com, B. Scott has just rewarded loyal fans — his “love muffins” — with the release of his debut single, a sassy ’90s throwback worthy of a runway stomp. “I don’t care who’s right or wrong,” sings the gender-nonconformist gay enchantress on the Midi Mafia–produced dance track. “I just want you all night long.”
