The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

I don't rank late-night performances in this space, but this week, there were a couple of exceptional ones that demand to be mentioned. First, there's Sharon Van Etten unleashing her full soul-wrecking wail while singing "Seventeen" on Colbert. And then there's one that basically is a music video: Bad Bunny euphorically lip-syncing "Mía" … More »

Songs You Might Know From Artists You Probably Don’t: Sifting Through 2019’s Potential Pop Hits

Pop music is a crazy industry, even more so in our fractured age. It's crazy how many songs can be blowing up in some corner of the world, online or off, without ever spilling over into the mass consciousness. It's crazy how many of those songs actually do spill over without some of us realizing … More »

The 60 Best Songs of 2018

60. St. Vincent - "Fast Slow Disco" Just because an album is available to purchase doesn't mean the songs are complete. While most acts will add different nuances to their hits in a live setting, Annie Clark is still very much obsessed with the tracks that made up her stellar 2017 effort Masseduction. She took her string-drenched highlight from that record "Slow Disco" and, while touring, turned it into an amped-up dance number, discovering that underneath all the opulence, it was a fist-...

The Top 40 Pop Songs Of 2018

Y'all wanna hear something crazy? I've been writing this weekly pop column for five whole years now.

Kendrick Lamar, Donald Glover, SZA, Lady Gaga, Troye Sivan, Jónsi Nominated For Golden Globes

It's that time of year again. The year-end movie-awards season officially kicked into high gear this morning with the announcement of this year's Golden Globes nominations. And as ever, there were plenty of music-world crossovers. One of the year's heavyweights, of course, is A Star Is Born, Bradley Cooper's sweeping and old-fashioned rock … More »

The Best Pop Albums of 2018

10. Lake Street Dive - Free Yourself Up (Nonesuch) Over the years, Lake Street Dive has taken their jazzy, retro-soul sound and given it a bit more punch with each subsequent album. Sure, they're beloved by the NPR crowd (and are fiercely championed by Stephen Colbert), but their new album Free Yourself Up is a different beast entirely. Taking every trope they've ever tried and pushing it to its extreme, Free Yourself Up sounds like the band fully embracing their musical identity and having a l...

Thank You, Next: 18 of 2018’s Other Epic Singles

Friends, robots, Kardashians, lend me your ears. Remember the days when you didn’t rely on a streaming algorithm to turn you onto new music? That’s right, back when your parents, older siblings, radio DJs, record store clerks, opinionated friends, underpaid magazine writers, and niche bloggers used to fill this role? Well, it’s time to bring back those jobs! Make America a Mixtape Again Before we begin, here’s that Arianna Grande video referenced in the headline (no bait and switch here): ‘...

Watch Troye Sivan Sing His Jónsi Collab “Revelation” On The Tonight Show

Just a few months ago, Troye Sivan released a new album called Bloom. It was very good. This past week, Sivan performed on The Tonight Show twice, and neither of the songs came from Bloom. Are we already past that? Or is Troye Sivan just exploding with good songs that demand to be … More »

Troye Sivan – “Somebody To Love” (Queen Cover)

Queen have been on everyone's mind lately, with the (by most accounts) unremarkable Queen biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, hitting theaters today.

Troye Sivan + Jónsi: Revelation

From the upcoming film Boy Erased, comes “Revelation” by Troye Sivan and Jónsi. A minimal and gentle ballad, the song blends the two familiar talents seamlessly and the result is hypnotic and powerful. Between its lofty strings, minimal piano, and Sivan’s pared-back vocals, the song ebbs and flows ethereally. Sivan also appears in the film (out in November) about a young man sent by his pastor …

The Success Of “I Love It” Puts A Perfectly Perverse Bow On Kanye West’s Batshit Year

Poor Icona Pop. The shouty Swedish singing duo don't have much to hang their hat on, historically speaking. In the moment, I thought their 2013 debut album was pretty good, but time has mostly forgotten them. The one thing they could definitely claim is SEO dominance for the phrase "I Love It" thanks to the … More »

Review: Troye Sivan Takes On Consent & Falling In Love On Bloom

The opening track on Troye Sivan’s sophomore album , Bloom, starts a conversation that is badly needed, especially in music. The song, “Seventeen,” addresses the issue of consent at that age where you’re not totally experienced in the ways of the world, but think you know it all. It also hits on the curiosity about sexuality that arrives on the cusp of adulthood. It’s not a song about the music industry, specifically, but given the vast history of older, famous men in music having relations...

Look, there's no nice way to say this: Eminem released a surprise album last night. I know. We're all going to have to deal. It's just a thing that's happened.

Album Of The Week: Troye Sivan Bloom

Troye Sivan's rise to something resembling pop stardom -- to pop-almost-stardom -- has been pretty conventional. Sivan, born in South Africa and raised in Perth, got his start as a 12-year-old on the Australian version of Star Search. From there, he became a child actor. At 13, he played the younger version of Wolverine in … More »
