Popping Culture: New music from Sigur Rós, Cat Power and Neneh Cherry

Today's edition of Popping Culture takes you to the late '80s and back and asks, "Is Shia LaBeouf getting naked a good or bad career move?"

In 1988, I bought my first 7-inch single. It was Neneh Cherry's "Buffalo Stance."

That single became a global hit, and the album, Raw Like Sushi, went gold in Canada.

Cherry is still out there, doing her thing. A recent collaboration with The Thing, remixed by Four Tet, is making the rounds online. It's called "Dream Baby Dream."

Cat Power hasn't put out an album of original material since The Greatest, but all over the internet today, there's news of a new single. Chan Marshall's latest track is available thanks to Pitchfork, so you too can take a listen. It's a great continuation of her soulful and bluesy sound.

Sigur Rós are perhaps known as much for their forays into glossolalia as they are for their stunningly beautiful videos. Their clip for "Viorar vel til loftarasa," featuring a love story between two boys, is possibly one of the most beautiful videos I've ever seen. Their clips have featured children in gas masks playing in a post-apocalyptic world and even a troupe of dancers with special needs. But their latest clip is perhaps their strangest and may be their most controversial. The reason: Shia LaBeouf. Naked.
