I don't feel the need to write all that much about a record like Saint Cloud because the artist tells you everything you need to know. Katie Crutchfield's writing and singing is pure and clear, giving her songs a special amount of detail. When backed by arrangements as pleasant as the ones here are, you can't help but be be swept into an Americana nirvana.

Standouts: Can't Do Much, Fire, Lilacs, The Eye, Hell, War, Ruby Falls, St. Cloud

For an artist with 50+ million monthly listeners on Spotify, Dua Lipa flew under my radar up until late last year. When a song like "Don't Start Now" drops, though, my attention was had. It's easily one of the most fun pop songs of the last few years, a slick mix of 80's and 90's dance/disco and modern pop sensibilities, all tied together with a cool and collected Dua guiding you through. It raised a lot of people's eyebrows, mine included, and subsequent singles only served to raise ... read more

For years, I never understood The Weeknd’s popularity. The auto-crooning vocals and mishmash of r&b beats never meshed for me, but it sure did for the rest of the world.

There’s an overall focus on the cold, synthesized aesthetic that really ties AH together in a way Starboy and My Dear Melancholy, never did. The heavy use of synths calls back to ... read more

What I love about Pet Shop Boys is that they have basically made the same two songs over and over again since the early 80's. They've got the synthpop banger (Will-o-the-wisp, Happy people, Monkey business) and the slower synthpop number (You are the one, After the dark), and they still excel at making them. This isn't the strongest crop of Pet Shop Boys in the new millennium (that honor goes to Super), but if you love yourself some "West End Girls" or "Always On My Mind", I ... read more

Not many people would’ve thought of a new U.S. Girls project as an event a few years ago (myself included!), but given how uniformly excellent In A Poem Unlimited was, Meg Remy’s next project deserved attention. What we’ve gotten is Heavy Light, a record that feels like a natural evolution from its predecessor. It’s more experimental in song structure, with some spectacular hits and some admirable misses. The hits are bound to be some of the best songs you’ll hear ... read more

I'm doing great! Uni exams are stressful as hell, but I've been managing my time decently and I'm also working on year end lists.

You said something about your website, mind if I ask what it is?

Woah thomasny18 is promoting you! You truly deserve it man, especially with the insightful reviews :)
Sometimes I'll do a big long review on why something is amazing, other times I'll just post quick thoughts on random albums. But you can be damn sure I mean everything I say.
