【POP MUSIC EMERGENCY】beyoncé dropped another album out of nowhere.

…..and it’s exclusively on Tidal again.  Woman, please.

While i’ll wait for the iTunes release, I cannot believe she had the audacity to do this again, and frankly it fucking worked.  Hype levels are insane on social media and forums.

Lead track “APESHIT” is pretty fierce.  Jay is on frenetic fire, and Bey’s trigger bang delivery really drives down the aggressive mood of the track.  It’s fantastic, and I say this as someone who doesn’t normally listen to either of the Carters on a regular basis.

There goes my chill Saturday night…..

【mini rate】christina aguilera / liberation

Vocal acrobat “Xtina” returns with her first record in 6 years, a triumphant and modern return to form.

【check!】troye sivan / dance to this (feat.ariana grande)

Troye’s (my autocorrect insists on correcting his name to Trite which might be a little suspect) latest cut ahead of the release of his debut album is a synthy dance track, reminiscent of Drake’s Passionfruit and features newly engaged Ariana Grande, who very easily manages to outperform Sivan unfortunately. It’s a rather above average, but not excellent song that is held back by its lack of a bridge…


【check!】st.vincent / fast slow disco

St.Vincent returns with a recut mix of Slow Disco from her 2017 release “MASSEDUCTION”, aptly titled “Fast Slow Disco”.  This version serves the meat and potatoes that I need : retro synths, a plodding rhythm and a choir!  I’m loving it.


【check!】shuntaro okino / birds of prey

Shuntaro Okino, former frontman of 90’s neo acoustic rock group Venus Peter is releasing a new solo album, his first since 2015’s “F-A-R” and the lead track is lush, vibrant and a strong offering from what’s shaping up to be a very promising album.

“The Spark” will be out on 6/6 in simultaneous CD, vinyl, and digital formats.
Order the CD at CDJapanAmazonHMV, or Tower Records.
Please note Tower ships within Japan only.
Vinyl is available on Amazon.
