Disney’s “Dconstructed” (Various Artists) – Album Review

The family-friendly world of Walt Disney wouldn’t appear to be a logical fit for the hedonism and debauchery of the EDM scene. But just 18 months after dubstep wizard Skrillex provided the score for Wreck-It-Ralph, Disney’s record company offshoot has recruited a who’s-who of superstar DJs to transform a whole host of Disney tunes past and present for remix album, Dconstructed. The concept is undoubtedly intriguing, but sadly the execution […]

Future Honest

Future “Honest” –Album Review

What could have inspired Future’s latest album’s name? At first I thought it was his pregnant fiancé to be, Ciara, and the promise of soon-to-be born Little Future. That might have played into it, but really Future’s Honest (which drops April 22) is more about declaring the truth of his now grandiose success (and the “Blood, Sweat, Tears” that got him there.  Released by Epic, A1 and his own imprint, Freebandz, […]

Nas Illmatic xx

Twenty Years Later, Nas’ “Illmatic” is Even Iller

Nas always had a thing for nostalgia.  He is fantastic at remembering past glory, whether it be historical (“I Can”) or his own – which is what this whole album is about.  Illmatic XX reflects on where Nas came from, and celebrates the Golden Era in East Coast hip-hop.  On the 20th anniversary of Nas’ 1994 debut album, the classic Illmatic, the lyricist (now 40) reminds us how he captured […]

Ingrid Michaelson Lights Out

Ingrid Michaelson “Lights Out”—Album Review

By today’s popstar image standards, Ingrid Michaelson’s popularity is sometimes a bit of an anomaly. Flying in the face of current tactics such as overused autotune, overloud mastering, controversial fashion choices and provocative public behavior (whether on or off stage), Michaelson has built a persona based on understatement, maintaining a girl-next-door look and publicly downplaying her own talent.  And yet, ask almost any aspiring singer-songwriter today (particularly of the female […]

Kiesza

Introducing: Kiesza

From the ballet to the Canadian military to the world of beauty contests, it’s unlikely that anyone from the current wave of 90s house revivalists has experienced a route to success as intriguing as that of flame-haired, Calgary-born vocalist Kiesza. The 25-year-old first began her career in the Royal Canadian Navy aged just sixteen, where she became renowned for her code-breaking and sharp-shooting skills. However, after realising that she could […]

The Black Keys Turn Blue

The Black Keys Unveil New Track “Turn Blue”

After the monumental success of  2011’s El Camino, which went on to earn The Black Keys a whopping four Grammys,  bandmates Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney are back to try again with a much anticipated new release titled Turn Blue.  This week, the duo dropped the title track of the album as a teaser. Two things intrigue me about this track.  First of all, it’s got a steady-but-chill midtempo groove […]

AC/DC

Not So Fast: AC/DC Not Calling It Quits

For the past 48 hours or so, the rumor mill (i.e., the Internet) has been churning with speculation that Aussie hard rock act AC/DC were on the verge of retirement due to a “serious illness” of one of the bandmates.  However, in a recent conversation with The Telegraph, frontman Brian Johnson refuted those rumors, stating that the band were still planning to get together to record new material. “We are […]

Chet Faker Built on Glass

Following in the footsteps of his recent partner-in-crime Flume, bearded hipster Chet Faker, aka Melbourne singer-producer Nicholas Murphy, is the latest Australian dance act to make waves in the U.S., having soundtracked a 2013 Super Bowl commercial with his intriguing cover of Blackstreet’s New Jack Swing classic, “No Diggity.” Inspired by both his mother’s Motown and father’s Ibiza chill out record collection, his debut album, Built On Glass, pursues a […]

Coldplay Magic

Coldplay Release New “Magic” Video

In keeping with their apparent new bent toward the electro side of soft rock, this week Coldplay released their new single “Magic,”  accompanied by a music video that is every bit as captivating as the song itself. Similar in its repetitive nature to their earlier single “Midnight,” “Magic” has a slightly more upbeat drum loop, as well as much stronger pop sensibilities.  The result is a singable, ear-wormy deal that […]

Squarepusher Music for Robots

Squarepusher “Music For Robots” – Album Review

Renowned for pushing the boundaries of electronic music via various sonic experiments, IDM pioneer Tom Jenkinson, aka Squarepusher, now debuts arguably his most ambitious enterprise yet with Music For Robots, a five-track EP produced in conjunction with a team of Japanese roboticists and their mechanised ‘power trio’ creation, Z-Machines. Arriving twelve months after German scientists constructed a heavy metal covers band entirely out of robots, and just a few weeks […]
