We live in a time when music is veering off in lots of interesting new directions.  New genres are being born right before our very eyes and old genres are shifting into new territory.  Artists like Lorde, Banks and Haim are all breaking the old rules and getting lots of attention for it. ...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW(S): THE HAWK IN PARIS

Interviews by Michael McCarthy I am a music junkie. I always want more and I can never have enough. One of my favorite places to find new music is Noisetrade, a wonderful website where thousands of artists give away their music in hopes of building a following. You’re free to tip them, and...

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: FEFFE OF BOMBUS TALKS ALL THINGS METAL

I recently gave a rave #albumoftheday review to The Poet and the Parrot by Bombus, a mind-blowingly good, red hot metal band hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden.  Unlike most Swedish metal bands, Bombus are not a death metal band, sounding more like a cross between Metallica’s first few records and Motorhead at their prime. ...

Sometimes when I read reviews I’ve written some months later, I’ll find myself thinking that I poured it on a bit too thickly, that I perhaps gave too much praise, thus...

*EXCLUSIVE* INTERVIEW: SPC ECO’S DEAN GARCIA

I recently reviewed SPC ECO’s exquisite new single, “Delusional Waste,” and found my head filled with questions while writing it. (“Delusional Waste” review: http://www.loveispop.com/reviews/single-spotlight-spc-eco-delusional-waste/) After all, SPC ECO’s producer/programmer/musician extraordinaire is none other than Dean Garcia, who was one half of the indie electro-pop/rock duo Curve, one of the ’90’s very best and...
