American noise pop duo Sleigh Bells remains in the top spot as the music blogosphere's hottest act, according to The Hype Machine on January 28. Australian electronic act Cut Copy and Swedish pop singer Lykke Li round out the top three. Also in the day's top ten are English singer-songwriter Adele and American indie band Deerhoof.
UK album chart-topper Adele is back in the blogs after recently performing a cover of singer Cheryl Cole's "Promise This" on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. "Adele takes Chezza's electro-blippy 2010 bestselling single and turns into something more soulful and gorgeous than ever before," raves music blogger Muu Muse (www.muumuse.com).
San Francisco rock quartet Deerhoof rejoins the top ten after the release of its eleventh album, Deerhoof vs. Evil , on January 24 in the UK and January 25 in the US. "Deerhoof is perhaps the most strikingly singular band working today," writes music blogger Pop Headwound, who describes the track "Super Duper Rescue Heads" as "an absolutely whacked-out pop joyride"
