Frank Ocean is the biggest name in music.

Okay, that’s not true, because there’s obviously artists like Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber, but think of when Frank (eventually) drops a project. It WILL be the biggest record in the world, no matter what happens. There could be no lead singles, no promotional tactics, not even a social media post hinting at it, and it would still be the year’s most streamed album, most purchased album… you get the point. However, there was ... read more

The thing is, Denzel is decent at the metal thing.

But PlayThatBoiZay? No.

Wiped clean off of everything with Laurel's name on it, Allelopathy is the forgotten release from the pop artist, and it's a curious case.

Sounding nothing like Laurel's other music, Allelopathy is a moody mixtape that fuses electronic, pop, and trap instrumentals from FKA Twigs, Yung Gud, and Andru. From the moody and off-putting opening notes of "Avena," it's clear that Laurel is taking a different approach to her music she did on her 2014 EP, Holy Water, which was a mellow pop ... read more

“Butter” is catchy enough, but I think the gradual shift of BTS’s music towards the American market has killed some of their appeal. Having a Korean verse in the song would have been cool, but instead there’s just some corny English lyrics, a talk box that is overproduced, and that’s about it.

Meh.

Then again, she's still only 18.

What's your favorite Swans record and song? (List)
Jan 9, 2021
Hello, I hope you're having a good day. I am reaching out in regards to my next AOTY Icon Interview. If you're unfamiliar with the series I crowdsource for questions. This time around for January 2021 edition, I will be interviewing PipePanic. The question is, what is a music-related question you can ask Pipe. Please refrain from asking questions as simple as "What is your favorite album?" Please also refrain from asking for thoughts about a specific album or asking joke questions. I ask that you ask something thought-provoking and ambiguous. I will be selecting the best questions to ask Pipe. If you can't think of any questions, you have a week to think about it. I also recommend checking my shoutbox before asking the question just to verify it hasn't been asked already. All participants will be credited for their questions. The interview will be posted by the end of the month. Thank you!
