【playlist】life polyphony’s definitive cuts 01

Before your week starts, I thought i’d assemble a huge set of songs featuring dreamy guitars and soothing melodies, for anyone looking to get into this dazzling genre of music or those just seeking something new.  This is two hours of the best guitarpop and shoegazey tracks for me, and I really hope you enjoy them too!

【news】avicii passes on at 28.

It’s with a large amount of sadness that today we’ve learned that the Swedish electronic dance savant Tim Bergling, more famously known as Avicii was found deceased today in Oman.

Avicii was very well known in the EDM community, and had even ranked third on DJ Mag in 2012 and 2013. Best wishes and prayers to those grieving over this huge loss for music today.


【check!】hit bargain / hell is real

I’m feeling a little fierce on this breezy Tuesday afternoon, and Hit Bargain dropped a killer cut full of attitude and frenetic energy.  I am definitely keeping this in rotation!

Heads up for that stupendous “we live our days in comfort” passage and the outro.
What a song!

“Hell is Real” is the third single from Hit Bargain’s debut album “Potential Maximizer”, to be released 2018.05.11. Look forward to it, and pre-order here if you’re about it.


【review/rate】exo-cbx / blooming days

released 2018, SM entertainment.

I will preface this review by saying i’m not really into current korean pop trends and prefer to keep it out of my regular listening, but I’ve always been a big EXO fan.  The second EP from the vocal subunit comprised of members Chen, Baekhyun, and Xiumin (properly named EXO-CBX, though I won’t give them any points for creativity here), is so fantastic and meticulously crafted that I have to give it some attention though.  Continue reading “【review/rate】exo-cbx / blooming days”

【thoughts】nicki minaj / chun-li

released 2018,  young money/cash money records.

Yesterday,  Nicki dropped a two punch combo on us after a short time away from releasing.  The rap/pop stratosphere has changed fairly quickly since “The Pinkprint” was dropped back in 2014,  and with the meteoric monopoly Cardi B seems to have on radio and our pop culture,  i’m glad to see that Nicki has returned with a fire lit under her fantastic booty!

I’m writing about Chun-Li over Barbie Tingz today, as while I enjoyed both,  Chun-Li is the immediate winner of the two,  with its fierce beat and quickfire raps that signal a return to form for Ms. Minaj that I can definitely vibe with.  Let’s be real here, a track namedropping an iconic video game character is going to equally be as iconic.

This is simply the hardest and rawest track she’s dropped since Beez in the Trap.
Don’t let it pass you by,  or else Chun might come find you!

Chun-Li is available on Apple Music and Spotify.
