Welcome to #StillWorthListeningToOnMonday, a round-up of the week’s best releases and #NewMusicFriday standouts you’ll still care about after the weekend ends. Don’t waste your valuable stream worth a fraction of a cent. Like Aquaria and Miz Cracker, Jesus Christ and I have been relentlessly…


"Elastic Heart (feat. The Weeknd & Diplo)": Sia Soldiers On With Almighty 'Hunger Games' Anthem

Oh, I've been so excited for this song to see the light of day. Queen Sia's been quite busy over the past few years, churning out pop masterpieces for the likes of everyone from Rihanna ("Diamonds") to Beyoncé ("Standing On The Sun") to Celine Dion ("Loved Me Back To Life") to our very own pop…


The Weeknd, "Belong To The World": A Dark Visual And Aural Triumph

Like most of The Weeknd's back catalog, his latest single "Belong To The World" — the next song off of his upcoming album Kiss Land — revolves around some familiar lyrical themes: Women, money and varying levels of world-weariness, loneliness and lust. But "Belong To The World" strives to be even…


Phlo Finister Makes Spook-R&B Debut on 'Poster Girl' EP

Meet Phlo Finister. The California-bred, Youthquaker-inspired (that's a 1960's cultural moment, FYI) songstress has been floating (read: phloating) around for a while now: In fact, she's been slowly generating buzz and releasing music over the past few years, even briefly retiring from music at…


The Weeknd's Latest Late Night Masterpiece, "Kiss Land"

We need to talk about The Weeknd. Despite the fact that I've been using the 23-year-old Canadian R&B producer/singer-songwriter's signature sound to describe the output of several pop stars over the past year, I've somehow failed to acknowledge his own sublime catalog on MuuMuse. So, let's fix…


MuuMuse Presents: The Top 20 Albums of 2012

Earlier this week, I posted my favorite singles from 2012. And now, it's time for the albums. Unlike last year, 2012 was not a very strong year for mainstream pop acts--at all. Most of the releases from pop's biggest players, including P!nk, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Christina Aguilera, Ke$ha…


Tinashe Unleashes Brilliant Mixtape: 'In Case We Die'

One of MuuMuse's favorite up-and-coming acts, Tinashe, has done a lot of growing up these days. After separating from short-lived girl group The Stunners in 2010 and releasing "Artificial People," her collaboration with OFM back in September of 2011, the blossoming 19-year-old singer-songwriter…


Win A Copy of Lady Gaga's Born This Way: The Remix! (Giveaway)

Last weekend, my bloggy BFFL Jon ALi and I went on a road trip to Boston. And in between the scream-singing of a majority of Talk That Talk (and some Kat DeLuna, but we're not talking about that right now), Jon played me some of his favorite mixes from Mademoiselle Gaga's brand new remix album:…
