Lali Disciplina

Lali Is Our Dom, And She's Here to Teach Us Some "Disciplina"

"Atención...firme." Her name is Dita - err, Lali. She'll be your mistress tonight. It's been well over a minute since we last heard from Mariana “Lali” Espósito, Argentine Queen of Pop™, following a little hiatus from the music scene. But she's here now...with a few more whips and chains this…


Royksopp Profound Mysteries

The Mysterious & Profound Return of Röyksopp: 10 Songs to Know

Röyksopp's back at last, Röykstans. Many moons ago, about fifteen years deep into their career, the Norwegian electronic duo announced that they were done releasing full-length records, and that 2014's The Inevitable End would be their final studio album in the traditional sense. Some people…


Let Them It's All Love Tom Aspaul

"Let Them (It's All Love)": Tom Aspaul Kicks Off a New Era

"You think everybody's out to get you / It's all love... It's a new year, and a new chapter for Tom Aspaul. Famously, we do not stan men in this house, but Tom is a rare exception to the rule, from the early "Indiana" days all the way to 2020's gorgeous, gay dance floor triumph, Black Country…


Girls On Top GOT the Beat Step Back

Girls On Top (GOT) Make Their Live Debut With 'Step Back'

"Girls, bring it on..." Good morning, good afternoon, good evening...or whenever you're rolling out of bed right now. Welcome to 2022. Maybe you didn't stay at home alone last night eating Halo Top, doing a digital DJ stream (more coming soon!) and watching the legitimately great metaversal…


Katy Perry When I'm Gone Alesso

'When I'm Gone': Katy Perry Pushes 'PLAY' & Hits the Dance Floor

"When I'm gone, I'm never really gone / You think you're movin' on / But it won't be for long, you'll see..." Katy Perry is back. Sort of. Actually, she's staying put in one place: Las Vegas, to be exact. The Teenage Dream pop titan is bringing her whipped cream and firework-filled bras to Sin…


Aly AJ Slow Dancing Remixes

Aly & AJ Give "Slow Dancing" a Few New Beats With Remix EP

Aly & AJ - purveyors of perhaps the Greatest Album of 2021 - are back right in time for this godforsaken year's finale. One year ago, the "Potential Breakup Song" (Explicit Version) duo gave us the then-first taste of their album A Touch of the Beat Gets You Up on Your Feet Gets You Out and Then…


Utada Hikaru Bad Mode Profile

Everything We Know About Hikaru Utada's 8th Studio Album, 'BAD MODE'

Today is December 9. (Well, in Japan it already is, and that's all that matters.) It is a chilly but gorgeous day, and also a time to celebrate: it's the 23rd anniversary of Hikaru Utada's debut with “Automatic/time will tell." And to honor the as-of-yet undeclared federal holiday (what is…


Grimes Player of Games

"Player of Games": Grimes Goes Trance in Space for 'Book 1'

Grimes, the Marie Antoinette of the pop stan community, is starting a new chapter. Problématique as she may be - for procreating with Elon Musk, The Richest Man In The World (and frequent asshole on Twitter), and/or beefing with Poppy and Azealia Banks (the feud of our generation, which needs to…


Netflix Arcane League of Legends

Netflix's 'Arcane' Is Excellent (And the Soundtrack's Great, Too)

To say I'm a gaymer would be stretching it: I'm an inconsistent dabbler at best. But I do play League of Legends every now and then, and have for the past few years with a group of LGBTs. I am objectively terrible at it (bronze trash, formally speaking) - largely because I do not try to learn…


Little Mix Between Us

'Between Us': One Decade Later, Little Mix Are at Their Most Powerful Yet

Little Mix. (To be declared in a booming, God-like voice, a la the 2017 BRITs performance opening.) Girl groups don't often get a chance to celebrate a career that's gone ten years deep. In fact, it's hard enough to get past two or three albums max before "creative differences" arise, egos and…


Mitski The Only Heartbreaker

"The Only Heartbreaker": Mitski Resigns to Being the Bad Guy

"If you would just make one mistake, what a relief that would be..." You know how there are songs that, upon hearing an opening line for the first time, you just know it's about to have you in a chokehold? Mitski is back. The 31-year-old Puberty 2 singer-songwriter actually returned last month…


Donna Missal To Me Your Face Is Love

"(To Me) Your Face Is Love": Donna Missal's Club-Ready Love Letter

"You’re symphonic, you’re the melody I want..." Donna Missal doesn't -- wait for it -- miss. At all. (Still workshopping this one. Sorry.) The 30-year-old powerhouse belter has come a long way sonically since her 2018 debut This Time, followed by last year's Lighter, both of which are full of…
