Bleachers Offer Free Download Of ‘Strange Desire’ Re-Release Featuring Female Vocalists On Every Song

Bleachers‘ Strange Desire was a highlight of last year in pop music, and Jack Antonoff & company are keeping the record alive in 2015 with an extremely intriguing re-release called Terrible Thrills Vol. 2. The main difference in the new version of Strange Desire is the guest vocalists; rather than Jack singing, Antonoff has tapped several […]

Charli and her emojis swirl through a bright […]

Watch Charli XCX’s Punk Cover of Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off”

Britain’s pop-meets-punk singer-songwriter Charli XCX put out her excellent sophomore LP Sucker last year to applauding reviews. While she’s busy supporting that album, Charli XCX took some time to stop by the BBC’s Live Lounge to perform a cover of Taylor Swift‘s “Shake It Off.” Considering the two are friends, it shouldn’t come as a surprise. And given […]

Nina Corcoran’s ‘Best of 2014’ in Music

If there’s anything to be certain of when it comes to music, it’s that you can’t control when it strikes you. In a year filled with violence, racism, disease, and political stumblings, our brains were in overdrive trying to do the right thing. For most, music serves as an escape. It articulates emotions and brings […]

REVIEW: Charli XCX – ‘SUCKER’

Artist: Charli XCX Album: SUCKER Genre: Pop Label: Asylum Records In the lead-up to SUCKER, I posited a comparison between Charli XCX’s current career arc and early 2000’s Avril Lavigne. Something about the former’s progression from what would now be considered Lorde-esque alt-pop to pop punk reminded me of a better version of Lavigne’s grunge-aping early work turning into […]

Charli XCX Releases Yet Another Punchy Single With “Breaking Up”

It’s almost criminal that Charli XCX‘s sophomore album, Sucker, is dropping in December (for now). Old Charli made sense in cooler months, slick and moody alt-pop that had unfortunate timing in coinciding with Lorde’s rise. This sophomore album has taken a hard left into sun-drenched pop of blissful youth, steering determinedly into the unexpected success of “Boom […]

Charli XCX Continues To Impress With “Gold Coins”

Charli XCX has become the latest promising young artist to have the release of their debut album fumbled by a major label with no idea how to promote talent that falls outside the realm of whatever is popular at radio today. Her sophomore album, Sucker, was scheduled to arrive months ago, but at this point […]

If British singer, songwriter, and all around badass Charli XCX moving her new album’s release date back to December 16 has you down (or even later for you UK folks), fear no more. The highly-anticipated sophomore album, Sucker, now has a new single for fans to play on repeat until the holidays: “London Queen.” The single […]
