Just when EDM was kinda getting stale, Avicii’s True shows everyone how it’s done. Mixing organic instrumentals with soaring synths, the debut studio album from the Swedish DJ is both delightful and catchy—the type of popular dance music you wouldn’t mind listening to even outside the club.
If you still haven’t listened to True, here are 5 tracks you need to hear:
- Hey Brother [feat. Dan Tyminski]
The latest single from the album is also one of the strongest. “Hey Brother” features American bluegrass singer Dan Tyminski.
“Applause” didn’t exactly burn up the charts, and now it looks like Lady Gaga is ready to move on. Shortly after releasing “Do What U Want” on iTunes as a promo single, Mother Monster announced that it will be the next single from her upcoming album, ARTPOP.
There was a problem connecting to Twitter.
American rock band HAIM is visiting Vancouver this week. I won’t be there (the show is already sold out), but here’s their recent hit “The Wire” for your listening pleasure.
It seems too early to be thinking about Christmas, but apparently it’s just around the corner. The evidence? New Christmas music!
First up this year is Kelly Clarkson, who just released “Underneath the Tree”. As I expected, the song has cheesy lyrics, but the song’s vibe more than makes up for it. With the right promo, this could become a holiday classic.
The buzz about Miley Cyrus lately is not an accident. From her twerking “performance” at the MTV VMAs to her comments about sex and old age on The Today Show, Miley is here to shock.
And it’s not like you can blame her: If you want to shed your former identity as Hannah Montana, you’d do drastic stuff, too, to tell the world that yes, you’re a fuckin’ adult now.
Preparing to release her first Christmas album, Wrapped in Red, Kelly Clarkson today revealed the lyrics for the lead single “Underneath the Tree.” With lines such as “I found what I was looking for” and “You’re all I need underneath the tree,” this is turning out to be a cheesy song—which should be perfect for the holidays.
“Underneath the Tree” is set to premiere tomorrow, October 18.
