#albumoftheday / REVIEW: THE DOLLYROTS: A DOLLYROTS CHRISTMAS EP

“The Dollyrots are a punk rock band but their CDs are very pop.” – from their bio on their Facebook info. And after listening to their new Christmas EP, I’m inclined to agree. The Los Angeles duo’s energy and tempos are very punk rock, but the hooks are so contagious that you could...

VIDEO: Jessie J – “Masterpiece”


This one has a really uplifting chorus, but the verses are a trainwreck. She sings a few lyrics then she starts going "blah, blah" and making some incomprehensible gibberish. If it wasn't for that hideous bridge we might actually like this song, but... Any song that...

#songoftheday / VIDEO: The Ready Set – “Fangz”


And now for something completely different... A slamming, electro-pop gem from The Ready Set. No, we didn't exactly see it coming either. "Fangz," as it's called, is a better EDM track than anything on David Guetta's latest album. OK, so it's not quite EDM,...

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: ROBBIE WILLIAMS: UNDER THE RADAR VOL. 1

Just over a week ago, Robbie Williams announced that he’d be releasing an album of rare and previously unreleased tracks called Under The Radar Volume 1. This immediately excited me because I’ve always loved and collected Robbie’s B-sides and have often felt that many of them were stronger than some of the material...

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: YSA FERRER: SANGUINE

Ysa Ferrer is an artist who half of our readers have likely never heard of while the other half are undoubtedly quite familiar with her. If you live in the States — where we’re based — then you’re probably not familiar with her. But if you live in Europe, she’s practically a household...

REVIEW SPOTLIGHT: DAVID GUETTA: LISTEN

If there’s one thing you could accuse David Guetta of, it’s being formulaic. He has a design in front of him and he rarely colors outside of it. It’s like he has a dance pop algorithm he uses to write all of his songs. To that end, you could say that his music...

  • LEO IEIRI: SILLY
    LEO IEIRI: SILLY Release Date:  11/19/14 Label:  Victor Entertainment You have to admire Leo Ieiri. If for nothing else then for the fact that she writes all of her own songs. Also, she manages to put out new music as regularly as the bulk of J-Pop artists who have other people writing songs for them. […]

    THE BARBERETTES: Carol: Hun Hun Christmas Release Date:  12/9/14 Label:  Sony Music If you're a fan of '60's pop music and you like Christmas music, this EP will have you jumping with joy.

  • MEG: THANK YOU, MAMA
    MEG: THANK YOU, MAMA Release Date:  10/29/14 Label:  XQMN It's a pretty ballad and ballad junkies are sure to love it. But I just didn't find it very catchy, unlike almost everything else Meg has ever done. [I meant to post this review a month ago but forgot about it. My bad. Sorry.] Just in […]
