#songoftheday / REVIEW: Mo Parker – “SHY”


Mo Parker is actually two people: Classically and jazz trained pianist and singer Mo and trippy R&B beat-maker Domzilla. Their union here couldn't possibly be more intriguing as Mo's piano and soulful vocals ride Domzilla's super deep, low end bass perfectly, resulting in something that sounds...

#albumoftheday REVIEW: FLORENT MARCHET: BAMBI GALAXY

I must admit that I don’t know a whole lot about Florent Marchet. The only other album of his that I have is Noël’s Songs, which, as you could probably guess, is a Christmas album. I simply grabbed that one for the heck of it because, as my loyal readers must have figured...

#albumoftheday REVIEW: ST. VINCENT: ST. VINCENT

On her fourth solo album, St. Vincent – otherwise known as Annie Clark – has created a lusher, more fully realized take on the pristine pop of her last album, 2011′s Strange Mercy.  This is where heart-swelling melodies meet cool, unflinching beats.  Using two live drummers — Homer Steinweiss of the Dap-Kings and...

REVIEW: THE GLITCH MOB: LOVE DEATH IMMORTALITY

The Glitch Mob are an electronic music trio consisting of Edward “edIT” Ma, Justin Boreta and Josh “Ooah” Mayer. Their 2010 debut, Drink The Sea, did fairly well, giving them a rather large fanbase, especially in the EDM underground, and more than a handful of favorable reviews. Alas, it did not make a...

VIDEO/REVIEW: THE CHAINSMOKERS: “#SELFIE”


The Chainsmokers have done some of my favorite remixes during the past year or so, including massive remixes of BANKS' "Change," The Killers' "Miss Atomic Bomb," Icona Pop's "Girlfriend" and Say Lou Lou's "Julian." They even have a pretty epic official, label-commissioned remix of Ellie Goulding's "Goodness...

#albumoftheday REVIEW: ROSE ELINOR DOUGALL: FUTURE VANISHES

Rose Elinor Dougall is perhaps still best known as a former lead vocalist of The Pipettes. But she has kept rather busy as a solo artist since leaving the popular girl group in 2008, releasing some very well-reviewed singles, such as “Start/Stop/Synchro” and “I Know We’ll Never,” as well as a much-beloved album,...

LOVE IS POP’S 60 BEST ALBUMS OF 2013!!!

by Michael McCarthy When I say that these are the “60 Best Albums of 2013,” I’m just saying that these were my favorite albums this year. I’m simply entitling this piece “60 Best Albums of 2013” instead of “60 Favorite Albums of 2013” because everyone always uses the term “Best Of,” not favorite....

REVIEW: DAVID LYNCH: THE BIG DREAM

David Lynch’s 2011 debut, Crazy Clown Time, was a vocoder-hater’s worst nightmare.  And it wasn’t for people who weren’t into meditation either.  But for any fans of Lynch’s films who’ve ever wondered what the melodies and monologues inside of his head actually sounded like, it was a fascinating listen, even if it was something they...

  • f(x): 3집 THE THIRD ALBUM: RED LIGHT
    f(x): 3집 THE THIRD ALBUM: RED LIGHT Release Date:  7/9/14 Label:  SM Entertainment The album opens with the title track, "Red Light," a trippy yet bouncy tune that will probably confuse you the first time you listen to it. It's one of those wildly imaginative K-Pop songs that goes in several different directions, much like Girls' Generati
  • TOP.IC: SEE YOU AGAIN
    TOP.IC: SEE YOU AGAIN Release Date:  7/3/14 Label:  CJ E&M Music TOP.IC's delightful "See Ya" is poised to become one of summer 2014's most defining pop songs. These days digital singles are dropping every other day in the Asian pop world, and especially so in the K-Pop realm. It seems that labels are signing more and more artists in
  • HYOMIN: MAKE UP
    HYOMIN: MAKE UP Release Date:  6/30/14 Label:  코어콘텐츠미디어 The single, "Nice Boy," is tepid and highly offensive. The other two tracks are great though. Make Up is Hyomin of T-ARA's first mini-album. The lead single is a track called "Nice Body." And it's highly offensive. I don't even know where to begin. It's just wrong
