RYDYR – If This Is Love

As a music critic there’s a place deep down in your psyche that conceals a bleeding heart romantic — it’s unavoidable, too many songs we listen to are written about love. And regardless of how apathetic and cynical I’ve become as a jaded millennial I can’t entirely kill the enchantment. …But FUUUUCK why do I […]

Autumn In June – Can’t Stop Doubting Myself + Magenta LP

I’ve seen Autumn In June’s name floating around blogs for a while now and have heard singles here and there, but with his debut album MAGENTA out I finally took the time to sit down and give the South Central kid a real listen. After 45 minutes of synthesizer heaven, my days of growing up […]

Alexander Lewis & Brasstracks – All of the Lights

I’m usually not a fan of people reinterpreting the work of artists that I see as seminal, but Alexander Lewis & Brasstracks have a gem on their hands with their take on Kanye’s “All Of The Lights”. It’s a (naturally) brass-led jam that could very well be heard pouring out from an SEC college football […]

Dalona – Lovely

I can’t claim to know much about rap in Sweden outside of Yung Lean, but I do know that the country is a straight up factory for pop-music writers and musicians (I swear there’s a new Swedish pop import every season of the year…Skott, Sigrid, it’s hard to keep up). I’m not sure if it’s […]

LCAW – Nobody Else But You

I’m an unabashed pop fan who will go to the ends of the Earth to find serotonin-stimulating singles and digest all of the content that surrounds them. Sometimes that shows itself in the form of tearing through John Seabrook’s The Song Machine, rapidly taking notes and earmarking every other page to better understand the overarching process […]

Bella Mer – Loaded Gun

Bella Mer’s artwork for “Loaded Gun” finds her wrapped in a seemingly celestial glow, teetering between the earthly and the otherworldly; it’s a fitting visual approach to a track that’s best described as grandiose. Commenced with glimmering guitar-work, subtleties give way to a grand hook as the guitar-work goes gritty and its low-end swells underneath. While […]

Gianni & Kyle – Jealous

In my experience, there’s two sides to jealousy in a relationship: anger and sadness. It doesn’t matter which one is the initial emotion, but they feed off of one another until it’s impossible to avoid turbulence. Gianni & Kyle carry that sentiment on “Jealous”, a brand new joint from the buzzing duo that finds them trading sung […]

Golden Vessel – Shoulders (ft. Elkkle & Mallrat)

When I listen to music for the purpose of reviewing it, I try to hone in on the minute details and mentally notate the track piece-by-piece. After hearing “Shoulders” and deciding I wanted to give my thoughts on it, though, that process shifted on its own terms. As I listened to the track, I began to […]

Ashe – Used To It

“Sick of all the issues…” Why I’m not in love. It comes with issues. The side effects and prolonged trauma of co-existence. My view is dark, I don’t deny it. Relationships I’ve had still grind me with apprehension — was I too removed? The sex was good…mostly? Should I have been more attentive? Jealous? Thoughtful? […]

PHANTOGRAM – You Don’t Get Me High Anymore (A-Trak Remix) [feat. Joey Purp]

I’ve been a running around a chicken with their head cut off since I have been back in NYC, I mean that’s the NYC lifestyle so I didn’t expect anything less or any relaxation once I got here.  It’s been amazing to be back, back on the grind, back blazin’ trails with aggressive hardworking artists […]
