I Dare You - The XX

The XX has an extraordinary ability to be able to create new and fresh material without compromising their unique style and I Dare You is without a doubt my favourite track off their latest album ‘ I See You’.


Jain - Zanaka (2015)

The French / African singer’s debut album is unlike anything you’ve heard before. From the opening songs of “Come” to “Mr. Johnson” to the addictive “Makeba,” Jain has crafted a debut album not at all dissimilar to Nelly Furtado’s 2000 debut “Whoa Nelly.” It’s a thrilling blend of many genres primarily organized around African tribal beats, with the singer’s distinctive, heavily-accented vocals layered on top of the irresistible music like maple syrup on a pancake. 32 more words

Nelly Furtado - Whoa, Nelly! (2000)

After a series of eclectic studio albums that go anywhere from distinctive (2003’s Folklore”) to mainstream (2006’s “Loose”), it’s peculiar to return to Nelly Furtado’s debut album. 139 more words

Lorde - Melodrama (2017)

I hate to say it but I was disappointed by Lorde’s follow-up to 2013’s “Pure Heroine.” The then-seventeen-year-old New Zealander delivered an arresting debut album with the aforementioned work, which captures the thoughts of a precocious, preternaturally mature teenager with a clear focus. 115 more words

Perfume Genius - Too Bright (2014)

A strange, hypnotic combination of lush melodies and surreal atmosphere, this glorious album by Perfume Genius is as unique as the compelling performer himself. It’s like putting the aggressive, defiant flamboyance of Jobriath, the tragic pining of Antony and the Johnsons and the surrealistic, emotion-driven music of This Mortal Coil into a blender, and the final result is as riveting and engaging as all the aforementioned. 68 more words

Spotify United States Top 50 - July 25, 2017

Y'all know me, still the same O.G. I was thinking about what I could do that I haven't yet done, and at the time I was looking at the Top 50 on Spotify, so I'm going to review exactly that: 954 more words
