Meimuna – tomber de haut If you’re walking down a very crowded street, stop suddenly and start staring intensely at an object in the distance; everyone who will notice you will stare in the same direction. Many will stop. Some will ask others what you are looking at. And some will even ask you.  There’s no way, regardless of who you are or where you are from, to get that trick to fail. Congratulations! You’ve just influenced a large group of people. Of course, you haven’t enriched or harmed their lives in any significant way. But now that you know how that works, you could do it.  Po ..read more

Haley and the Comet – Fair Heart Most pop singers spend a lot of time disguising the things that they lack and drawing attention to the ones that they do best. Pop stars tend to either contribute to good songs while otherwise being quite dull or have a marvelously entertaining personality without being able to deliver songs very well. With all things being equal, record execs and managers tend to prefer the folks lacking personality and, therefore less likely to cause them trouble.  The trouble is that if you repeat this recruitment process enough times, you end up with not a lot of peopl ..read more

Lucky Lou Makes – Dance Melancholia

Getting to record your musical debut is a lot like being summoned off the beach to take part in the Olympics. This is no time to get cold feet, overthink matters, or even add extra training. It’s an opportunity to show yourself to the world for all that you are. What happens, happens.  On her debut, Lucky Lou goes back into the past, examines it thoroughly, and allows herself to see just how much of the hopeful nights and the broken-hearted mornings played into what she became. It’s a debut meant to define her as an artist for all those concerned.  It’s a collection of songs of its ..read more

My Mom Is Here – Didn’t Sleep Tonight Musical audiences have just the same appetite for going out and having fun as they always did. But they have far less time. There is so much vying for their attention, and every single entertainment prospect is bound to wear them out just a little bit more.  It’s hard to get ordinary people to focus, so how can you expect them to stop and give their attention to highly complex pieces of music? Besides, most of these people have seen and heard a lot. How can you expect to surprise them with any kind of sound?  The musicians still looking to work o ..read more

Coeur-Joie – Ciel De Traîne The best and the worst thing about pop music is that you always know what to expect. I suspect that this is still the way that radio programs and famous playlists are assembled. As long as you hear a new song and know exactly where it’s supposed to go after hearing the chorus, then that could potentially become a hit.  But because everyone knows where every part is likely to go, it’s also a wonderful opportunity to mess with people’s expectations. For that, of course, you need bold, innovative artists who don’t think of “pop” as a dirty word and don’t mind taki ..read more

itsROGO – Teenage Stars Genre:  Lo-fi Rock, Garage Rock, Alternative Rock You may be cynical and say that being a pop star in 2024 doesn’t offer the same benefits it did back in, say, the 1970s. But it’s a job that involves less stress and fewer responsibilities. Pop stars back then, just like McDonalds’ employees, had to wear uniforms. Sure, those changed every few years and the clothes themselves were expensive. But, if they didn’t slip on the uniform, they wouldn’t be allowed to work.  Typical pop stars nowadays may have far less commercial reach than their predecessors, but many ..read more

Julia Logan – Mirrors It shouldn’t be a secret to anyone that the history of pop music is merely a number of cycles that get repeated once every few years. Musicians who go out searching for trends often do themselves a disservice. If they just have the patience to wait, work on themselves and their songs, find themselves with the audience that they need eventually. There’s just no telling how long it will take.  It’s an oversimplification, but most of the time, pop music is either really braggadocious and boisterous or looking for the simple ways in life, trying to wash itself of the sin ..read more

Lucky Kilmartin – Out of Touch Similar artists: Big Star, Noah Kahan, Zach Bryan, Neil Young, The Lemon Twigs Genre: Indie Rock, Indie Pop, Alternative Rock During the electoral season, politicians used to go out kissing babies, helping grannies cross the street and playing basketball in the park with strangers. They couldn’t afford not to be liked. During that period, they were part of whatever religion you wanted them to be in, they loved their families, and smiled their toothy grin whenever the opportunity presented themselves.  New politicians don’t want to be liked by everyone.

Niamh Regan – Music Genre: Indie Folk, Folk There’s a lot of heartbreak on your radio station nowadays. In fact, radio programmes have always liked it this way. It sells even more than songs about wealth or those about sex.  But the people who have truly had their hearts broken can’t listen to those anymore. It’s not that these tunes help memories flood back in. No, in fact, they don’t do anything for the listener. Instinctively, they know that’s not what heartbreak sounds like.  Truly terrible things that seem determined to break your heart apart don’t happen on extraordinary days ..read more

Kurran Karbal – We Won’t Be Alone Forever Genre: Indietronica, Indie Pop, Alt Pop Pop stars nowadays don’t use electric guitars too much. Not unless they have a reason to do it. Not unless they are really trying to send out a message. You see, someone playing a distorted guitar through large amplifiers sends as much a message as a whole verse of rhymes would. It says: “This is a part that’s supposed to be loud, and I want you to pay attention to it!” Now, the acoustic guitar, an instrument that’s been around far longer than its electric companion, has begun being used in much the same way.
