Guys like Liam Payne need to stop writing songs about bisexual people

This article was previously published on Medium under a different headline. Monosexuals (people attracted to one gender), it’s time to talk about the songs you’ve been writing about bi people. More specifically, it’s time to admit that you need to stop writing songs about us. You’ve proven too many times that you are simply not up to the task. As far as I can tell, people who aren’t bi have only even written two types of songs about bi people: AdBridg.cmd.push(function() { AdBridg.display("div...

How The Soundtrack Of Love, Simon Gets Teen Movie Music Romantically Right

Sweeping synths, bouncing drum kits, and tight, ornamental guitar riffs – moments into watching Love, Simon, I was immediately swept up in nostalgic memories from my teen years. The perfect movie soundtrack is something that I’ve been fascinated with since I was in middle school. Back when Tumblr was at its peak, I spent countless hours creating my own soundtracks to John Hughes’ movies with modern synth-pop songs. I would search the internet for the perfect beat or melody that I felt captured ...

To celebrate, the Canadian sisters are trekking across North America playing "The Con" in its entirety. However, the highs that the band experienced in the wake of the career-changing record also came with serious lows. One deep listen to the lyrics on the ...

How a Recording Studio Mishap Created the Famous Drum Sound That Defined 80s Music & Beyond

It’s not a subtle effect, by any means, which is precisely what makes it so effective. Gated reverb, the sound of an airbag deploying or weather balloon suddenly blowing out, an airy thud that pervades eighties pop, and the work of every musician thereafter who has referenced eighties pop, including CHVRCHES, Tegan and Sara, M83, Beyoncé, and Lorde, to name but a very few. Before them came the pummeling gated drums of Kate Bush, Bruce Springsteen, Prince, Depeche Mode, New Order, Cocteau...
