As a truly dismal month for popular music rolls on, it would appear that Lewis Capaldi saw his biggest sadboi UK-based balladeer competition in Ed Sheeran release an uninspired album and follow it up with his own. Returning with a title that’s just as pretentious as his last, 2019’s Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, … Continue reading Lewis Capaldi – Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent

Bailey Zimmerman – Religiously. The Album.
Seemingly following the Morgan Wallen model of maximizing his image as a country star fit for the streaming and social media age, Bailey Zimmerman is both 7 years younger and doesn’t feel the need to overstuff his album with 36 tracks to rack those numbers up – two wins in my book. After breaking onto … Continue reading Bailey Zimmerman – Religiously. The Album.
Jonas Brothers – The Album
It truly doesn’t feel like it’s been a full four years since the release of the Jonas Brothers’ 2019 comeback album Happiness Begins, with quite a few one-off singles, collaborations, a 2021 tour and a solo album from Nick in the interim. That attitude of not really committing to anything concrete or wide-reaching might make … Continue reading Jonas Brothers – The Album

A stripped-back acoustic project that finds Sheeran diving into some of the most serious topics of his career and opening … Continue reading Ed Sheeran – –
Eslabon Armado – DESVELADO
Well, I certainly didn’t have regional Mexican music achieving a massive surge in popularity to the tune of two songs hanging around in the top 10 and many more threatening to break into the region on my 2023 Bingo card. But despite the renewed interest and modernization of the traditional genre being spurred mostly by … Continue reading Eslabon Armado – DESVELADO
Jack Harlow – Jackman.
When Jack Harlow put out his last project, Come Home the Kids Miss You, to decidedly mixed reception (despite it catapulting him to household name status), there were many thinkpieces about his next move being a make-or-break one for his career going forward. Luckily for Harlow, it seems that he took the criticism of his … Continue reading Jack Harlow – Jackman.
iann dior – leave me where you found me
It’s been a past couple weeks of speculating what will happen to the creative process when AI becomes further and further developed, and the answer might be that we’ll get a lot of music that sounds like leave me where you found me by iann dior. Released a little over a year since achieving decent … Continue reading iann dior – leave me where you found me
