It only took 20 something years, but at long last, a kind individual has uploaded both of the Japanese industrial goth unit BLAM HONEY's first two demotapes. These are incredibly rare (with the first tape limited to 100 copies, and the second 200 copies), and I cannot believe they're here on the internet. Do check... Continue Reading →
The boys of Dayglo (stylized DYGL if you're new here) return with a polished declaration of maturity on their second full length (or third, if you're a devotee who knows of the DYGL boys' offshot project 'Ykiki Beat'), 'Songs of Innocence and Experience'. Produced in cahoots with Rory Atwell and mastered at the legendary Abbey... Continue Reading →
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv-sdTOw5cs Shocking in its brutality, clear in its message. There is truly no one who can stand against Madonna when she's turned on. "God Control" is pop used as a weapon of mass education, and with a video like this, the message is clear as day - wake up.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H02BPY7vEms Yes, I know I wrote FACK ALL this month. Life is rough!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozx-VvqO_ys What a song. Does Sarah's outro make sense? No, but it WORKED. Nicola's voice carries such emotion in her small part, one of the biggest moments for her in the Girls Aloud discography. And then there's Nadine to carry the chorus. None for the other two.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8sP8RtHCrY MEG's initial remix album is a huge question mark in her discography for a multitude of reasons that I will get into in an article to come, but for now I wanted to share one of the brilliant tracks from it (that strangely only ended up on the European edition of the release). Arranged... Continue Reading →

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aEb5gNsmGJ8 Katy Perry's had a relatively weak few years of activity. Her latest album "Witness" failed to garner the sales and popularity of previous releases "Prism" and the massive "Teenage Dream", with an even weaker run of singles that contrasted her previous streak of high quality, chart topping releases. Now we're in the midst of... Continue Reading →
https://youtu.be/GmBHj9UXyXo A breezy blend of bedroom-meets-dream pop, "Sylvia Plath" is the second track on Youth's latest five track EP "Garden". The video itself is soothing and plays with the senses, frames melting into each other like one heavenly acid trip. Check the video out now, and stay tuned as I'll have a review of the...
