New Music Friday: MNDR and Le Youth ‘head up’ a funsize Q4 of Q4 edition

This post was originally published on this site

A short playlist this week, as is traditional in the the fourth quarter of the fourth quarter, but the good stuff is still good.

Song of the week:
Le Youth feat MNDR — ‘I Could Always’

This tune has been made Song Of The Week because it is a prime example of one of pop’s most incredible genres: non-Christmas songs that sound like Christmas anyway. Well done Le Youth and well done MNDR, who remains a perplexingly undercherished pop person.

Additional notes:

  • Sophie‘s ‘Ponyboy’ seems to last for about half an hour but actually comes in at just over three minutes, which is an impressive manipulation of the poptemporal laws we so often take for granted. There’s an interesting interview with Sophie over at Vulture.
  • ‘Big Bad Bitter’, the latest single from Swedish-Norwegian warbler Adelén, picks up some songwriting touches from the likes of Julia Michaels and Sigrid, which is nice.
  • The Charli XCX / Tove Lo / Alma pileup ‘Out Of My Head’ is very enjoyable but not festive enough to be Song Of The Week, sorry everyone.

Charli XCX breaks the internet by Twitter-teasing new mixtape with Carly Rae Jepsen, Tove Lo, tons more

Hey, young, savvy readers! Tell me if this is gonna fly with you or not, okay?

So: I just read that a singer (well, some kind of musician, anyway) named Charli XCX — whoever THAT is — said a THING yesterday? On TWITTER?? About a NEW ALBUM???

Or, I guess it’s not a “new album,” really…but a new “mixtape”? (Those are two different things, yeah?)

And…it’s a little hard to tell (cuz again: I’m literally just reading Twitter tweets, here)…buuuuut…it seems to feature the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, A. G. Cook, Tove Lo, Kim Petras, Mykki Blanco, Brooke Candy, CupcakKe, and Pabllo Vitar, among others?

I can’t tell when/how it’s coming out or anything… but I guess I can show you all the tweets, and you can…like, read/decide “for yourselves”?

Does that count???

I’m sorry… I’m just really struggling.

Hopefully you’re excited about new stuff from Charli XCX and all, but basically: you all tell me: is this THE NEWS?

Am I “REPORTING THE NEWS TO YOU” right now??

Mr P, do I still get a paycheck for this?

I don’t even know.
