"Only You": Miss A Make A Confident K-Pop Comeback

It's amazing what some quality K-Pop can do to revitalize your spirit. I've written about Miss A in the past: Three years ago, the troupe first popped up on my radar (on my ray-duh) with their (still) incredible "Touch," along with the accompanying mini-album. And ever since, they've been…


"Sparks": Listen To A Preview Of Hilary Duff's Wonderful, Whistlin' Return To Synth-Pop

Turn the lights down low and kiss me: Our beloved Dignity diva has returned. There was a moment there when Disney princess-turned-certifiable MILF Hilary Duff threatened to veer permanently into vanilla guitar-pop territory with her sweetly inoffensive, shoe commercial-friendly "Chasing The Sun"…


MNEK's 'Small Talk' EP: Required Listening Of The Week

If you've not been formally acquainted by now, MNEK is a pop savant. A rhythm wunderkind. A young, bright beatmaster. The UK multihyphenate has written and produced Top 10 hits for nearly five years, from The Saturdays' "All Fired Up" to Little Mix's "Wings" to Duke Dumont's "Need U 100%" to…

"REALiTi": Grimes Drops A Dreamy Demo As A Special Thank You

It's fitting that Grimes decided to drop a song about climbing mountains called "REALiTi" at the same time I've been out here in Los Angeles reuniting with friends, hiking and largely ignoring social media in order to reconnect to exactly that. (Spoiler alert: There is life beyond the confines of…


"Adore": Ariana Grande Makes Mumbly Magic With Cashmere Cat

Ariana Grande: Talented vocalist. Mortal enemy of enunciation. Norwegian producer Cashmere Cat already teamed up with everyone's favorite demon-seeing, left side only Kabbalah Kutie in the past with "Be My Baby" on last year's My Everything. And so, to return the favor, Ari's just supplied her…


“Summer Of Love”: Dannii Minogue Makes A Fab Return To The Dance Floor

I’ve waited, oh, I don’t know...the better half of a decade to type these words: Dannii Minogue is finally back. (The 16-year-old me is currently clutching a copy a "Perfection" imported picture disc vinyl to my chest and violently shaking and crying.) After revealing that she would (AT LAST!) be…
