Ladykiller – Maroon 5

18 Jul

The gang, y’all!

‘Baby, she’ll eat you alive, as soon as she smells your blood in the water,’ Levine sings cheekily over one of the highlights from Overexposed, Maroon 5’s foray into undeniably and (semi) hitherto uncharted pop waters. Look, I’m a proud owner of Maroon 5’s entire discography. B-sides, deluxe editions, live sets: I have them all. And their recent resurgence makes me nothing but happy. I love them. Anyway, as much as every review begins with ‘Maroon 5 have decided to sell their souls to the devils of popular music,’ a lot of this sounds a return to their classical pop/rock roots. Fortune Teller rip-roars through an undeniable hook, yes, but wouldn’t sound out of place on Songs About Jane. The album’s a delight and arrived perfectly in time for my vacation. Listen to Ladykiller below and the exciting sound of Fortune Teller after the jump:

Channel Orange – Frank Ocean

11 Jul

So many things running through my head right now. Yes, I just did a post about Frank when I myself champion variety. Yes, Channel Orange was scheduled for a later release, and yes, I have to learn many pointless things for my British Citizenship test (including that Welsh is most widely spoken in Wales. Who would have thought?). But just please….

California – Oh Laura

2 Jul

(Oh) Laura

Howdy! I’ve finished with school for good, one of is already on vacation and I’ve a long stretch of . . . nothing in front of me. That all means one thing: I shall be imprinting my confused mix of indie/rock/dream/pop on you all summer long. The other guys have good music taste, but let’s face it: My music taste is tailor made for summer music. Fine, fresh, fierce, it’s undeniable:

Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2: An (Almost) Track-By-Track Review

24 Nov

A Very Glee Christmas: So. Much. Happiness.

Howdy! There was no new Glee episode today. But don’t worry because it’s back next week and named after a Katy Perry song. I kissed a girl. That’s the song’s title, the occurrence is rare for me (LOL, JK, Not Through Lack Of Trying). Fear not, because I have a track-by-track review of Glee’s latest Christmas album for you today. Well, almost. I’ve skipped the boring ones. So really this is like any other review where one picks out the particularly good or the particularly bad. I’ve just spared having to think of an actual structure because I’m lazy. Or tired. Or a mix of the two, with a heavy workload sprinkled on top. Anyway, Christmas!
