OTM

This week’s Of the Moment includes some more of The XX. Their new album was released yesterday, January 13th, 2017, and is really somewhat of a departure in a sense. I’ve been listening to some of the best music 2016 brought to us as a pop market. Don’t expect too many new things this week,…

Sticks + Stones: Nicola Roberts

“Couldn’t you tell lies to me? Couldn’t you say I’m pretty? Not that’s enough.” – Sticks + Stones Soft notes from a keyboard lead you into a stirring song that simultaneously encapsulates despairing-nostalgia and attempts at self-repair. Sticks + Stones is an extremely self-conscious piece of art that dives deep into the past of what seemingly…

Pop Emergency | Aqua

Stop what you’re doing and do some immediate research on this fact: Aquarium by Aqua turned 20 on January 1, 2017. This has seemingly gone unnoticed by the public (aka, people in their late 20’s and early 30’s). The album went to sell over 7 millions albums worldwide. Aquarium gave us the following gems: Barbie…

Their penchant for the melancholy and their ear for an amazing melody made their first albums worldwide hits. Their first four albums alone sold over fifty-five million albums worldwide. They became a force within the music business. What made me…

Dear Mariah…

  Mariah, Let’s talk. We all know you’re one of the best selling artists of all time. We all know you’ve had 18 number one hit singles. We all know you still hold the record for the longest running number one single (One Sweet Day) in America. We get it. You really did it up…

#FBF | FILL ME IN

#FBF (aka Flash Back Friday), is a weekly reminder of all good things past. We’ll look at an artist or a song that really just caused quite a stir prior to 2010. In April of 2000, Craig David released his first official single, Fill Me In. The song was a mix of R&B, 2-Step Garage and…
