Capsule reviews — mini reviews — are something new here at Love is Pop. Not only are they shorter, they’re written in a more personal, almost spontaneous, blogging style.

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...
Rather than constantly expanding our April Rules playlist, we decided to simply start a volume 2, which is now long enough for posting. Once again, the tracks are simply listed in the order they currently appear in, but we may add a few more tracks here and there as the month goes on,...Read more
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...Read more

This is where heart-swelling melodies meet cool, unflinching beats. Using two live drummers — Homer Steinweiss of the Dap-Kings and...Read more

PRESS RELEASE: Stone Cold Fox is an Indie Rock Band from Brooklyn, New York. Comprised of members from California to Maine, the band’s inception was a fairy tale that only Brooklyn could...Read more
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...Read more
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...
Interview by Michael McCarthy There isn’t much that one could say about the immensely talented Polly Scattergood that I haven’t said already. After all, I gave her new album, Arrows, a very positive review HERE and named it my favorite album of the year HERE in my Best of 2013 list. So, it...Read more
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,...Read more

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....Read more

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...Read more
