The blessing and the curse of Hollywood’s Bleeding is that it contains all three pairings and more. Every level of the … More »
Later this month, Tove Lo will follow up her 2017 LP Blue Lips, aka Lady Wood Phase II, with a new album called Sunshine Kitty. She’s already shared the anti-fuckboy anthem “Glad He’s Gone,” “Bad As The Boys” featuring Alma. and the electro-house-inspired “Jacques” with Jax Jones. Today, we … More »
If “half a billion views on YouTube” is any criteria to go by, there’s really only one candidate for a modern Christmas standard, and by “modern” I mean “recorded after Bing Crosby’s lifetime.” With all apologies to Run-D.M.C., Low, Cristina, and the in-house musicians of Studio One, … More »
When it comes to big room trance, Andrew Rayel is one of the first artists many would think of when it comes to the subgenre. The Moldovan DJ and producer has gone a completely new direction, however, with “Last Summer,” which sees him sharing the studio once more with “I Need You” collaborator Garibay.
The opening chords immediately sweep the listener into summer with tropical accents and an airy melody. The song centers around pop vocals by Jake Torrey, lending the track the ultimate radio crossover appeal.
“Last Summer” ultimately leans tropical and commercial house, which is a divergence from Rayel’s previous Trance releases. Garibay has a long history in the pop music industry having worked with the likes of Lady Gaga and Kylie Minogue, so the collaboration’s pop-leaning fabric have certainly been aided by Garibay’s proven style. The track is out now via Armada Music.
In 1995, Kyle Minogue was still something resembling a teen-pop star. But that’s when Nick Cave, her fellow Australian, wrote “Where The Wild Roses Grow” with Minogue in mind. Cave admits that he’d been nurturing “a quiet obsession” with Minogue for years, and he turned that into a dark and heavy song about obsession and … More »
- Hatchie‘s slightly magical Sugar & Spice sticks out like a sore thumb among this week’s new releases but it’s fair to say sore thumbs get a bit of a bad press these days largely due to the unsore thumb-pushing agenda of the media elite.
- The Dua and Calvin single is absolutely, totally fine.
- The Kylie album could perhaps have made a fairly decent 7-track EP. Its best song is Lost Without You.
- We’d quite happily listen to an entire album of Lady Leshurr doing her thing over She’s A Bitch. Importantly, Black Panther is also this week’s only release to namecheck ASDA’s home delivery service.

There is pulling a Taylor Swift, and then there’s pulling a Taylor Swift. Of the handful of country musicians who’ve briefly gotten a foothold in the pop mainstream — a list that in the past couple decades has included Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, Shania Twain, Lonestar, Lady Antebellum, and Carrie Underwood among others … More »
Fall Out Boy have always been a lot. God gave singer-guitarist Patrick Stump indestructible musclebound vocal cords that cannot be contained, and he fully indulges their powers. Musically, his songs tend to be big and bold, often dispensing with conventional notions of good taste in their pursuit of stadium-sized glory. As a lyricist, bassist Pete … More »
Nobody could really claim the guess-what-Kylie-went-to-Nashville-for-a-few-weeks-last-summer influence is subtle, but this Sophie Muller-‘helmed’ video for the new Kylie single is just what the doctor (in-house video commissioner) ordered.
- Proper dance routine
- Kylie tossing a guitar
- Bit at the end where she dances with the Grim Reaper (?)
That’ll do nicely.
It’s reassuring, also, to see Sophie Muller reprising the ‘line dancing, ballroom dancing and sparkly shoes’ theme of one of her finest works. Do you think she’s had those shimmer curtains in storage since 2001?
