Single Review: Mariah Carey – “Thirsty”

Single Review: Mariah Carey - "Thirsty"

Sadly, it’s been a while since I actually really enjoyed a song from Mariah Carey. If truth be told, the last time I can remember really getting into a song by the elusive chanteuse was way back in 2008 when she released the infectious “Touch My Body.” That all changed today when Mariah premiered her fantastic new single “Thirsty.” Boasting a throbbing beat ...

Single Review: Barcelona – “Fall In Love”

You may remember me singing the praises of Seattle-based indie-pop trio Barcelona last month. Well, I’ve got good news! Barcelona is back with the follow-up the their previous EP (Love Me) with a brand new EP aptly titled Love You.  The EP is the second in a three-part series titled The Melodrama. “The Melodrama is a three-part EP series that ...

Review: Barcelona – “Background”

It’s a rare occurrence to feel an emotional connection to a song almost immediately, but that is exactly what happened when I heard “Background” by Seattle indie-pop trio Barcelona for the first time tonight. The song, which is taken from the EP Love Me, perfectly captures all the emotions that come with working through the pain from a love betrayed. ... Read More »

Single Review: Kylie Minogue – “Into The Blue”

By now, Kylie Minogue’s music career has endured ups and downs for well over two decades. But with eleven studio albums under her belt and a twelfth coming later this year, Kylie is a creative force who certainly knows what she is doing. While other pop stars her age have fallen by the wayside and become nothing more than distant memories ... Read More »

Single Review: Miley Cyrus – “Adore You”

Single Review: Miley Cyrus - "Adore You"

Miley Cyrus will release the song “Adore You” as the next single from her fourth studio album Bangerz (2013). Thankfully, the track, which was written by Stacy Barthe and produced by Oren Yoel, is one of the lone standouts in a relatively unremarkable album. When you look back at all the utterly ridiculous events that surrounded Miley Cyrus in 2013, it’s ... Read More »

Album Review: Britney Spears – “Britney Jean”

Album Review: Britney Spears - "Britney Jean"

As the genre’s leading female vocalist for well over a decade, it’s hard not to have high expectations for a new Britney Spears’ record. That being said, in retrospect, the news that Britney’s new album, Britney Jean, featured acting as executive producer should have served as fair warning; but I was willing to overlook this when I heard she ...

Review: Sophie Ellis-Bextor Debuts New Single, “Young Blood”

It’s been a minute or two since we first heard the demo version of the new Sophie Ellis-Bextor single, “Young Blood.” But now we have it in all its polished glory! For her new single, Sophie takes off her dancing shoes in favor of something more refined and sophisticated. So, does this drastic shift in musical direction work for Sophie? Yes. “Young ... Read More »

Review: Christina Perri Returns With New Single, “Human”

Christina Perri’s latest offering, “Human”, makes a valiant effort to feel notable and inspirational without achieving much of a result. Frustratingly, the heavy-handed effort falls flat and we are subjected to yet another mind-numbingly boring song that will be touted as deeply poignant and moving. In reality, there is nothing remotely interesting about this vapid song. The lyrics are filled with ... Read More »

Album Review: Sky Ferreira – “Night Time, My Time”

The name of the Sky Ferreira’s debut album is Night Time, My Time, but it could just as easily have been called Sky Ferreira Rescues Pop Music From Mediocrity. By now, Sky’s music career comprises five years, two extended plays, one studio album, and zero bona fide radio hits. If you have been following Ferreira’s short but very, very chaotic venture ...

Single Review: Christian Burns & Paul van Dyk – “We Are Tonight”

One of the highlights found on former BBMak member Christian Burns’ debut solo album, Simple Modern Answers, is his fantastic collaboration with dance music heavyweight Paul van Dyk on the track “We Are Tonight”. When you combine all the talent involved with “We Are Tonight”, you’re bound to get something pretty special. With its soaring melody, glimmering beats, pulsing bassline ... Read More »
