Bohren und der Club of Gore - the Perfect Soundtrack for a Late Night Drive through Town

When it comes to dark jazz, the average listener tends to think of the melancholic and sedative performances of the likes of Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, perhaps even Miles Davis in his addiction years. But what most don’t realize is that, as a genre, dark jazz had never fully …

Future - DS2 album

Decadence, codeine, autotune - what does DS2 sound like, the key album of the last five years.
In hip-hop, an immutable scheme of the evolution of meanings in the lyrics of any successful rapper has developed: from “how bad to live without money” to “how awesome to live with money.” …

Lil Baby - The Bigger Picture

The Bigger Picture - When Western Trap Is No More Fun
I have had an extremely pessimistic attitude towards trap music for a long time. The position on this is clear: this genre does not have a big future, it is difficult to develop, and due to the huge number …

Kanye West - Jesus Is King arthouse album

Jesus Is King is Kanye West’s most arthouse album.
I’m surprised that “Jesus Is King” was Kanye’s lowest-rated album, especially considering that it sounds fresher than anything that came out in 2019 overall. Don’t think fresher = better, because this album is far from ideal. And there is a feeling …

Taylor Swift - folklore

“Dad, do you know Taylor Swift?”
Aaron Dessner was asked this question by his eight-year-old daughter. Through the mouth of a baby she spoke the truth, because that day a musician from The National recorded one of the songs on “folklore”. “No” - Dessner brazenly deceived the child. The release …

Sevdaliza - Shabrang album

Emphasizing the importance of Persian culture in her work, the Iranian-born singer calls her second studio album the word “Shabrang” - that was the name of the black horse belonging to Siyâvash from the book of the Shahnameh kings. Siyâvash symbolizes virtue, honesty and courage - being the son …

Mama - My Chemical Romance

My Chemical Romance, The Black Parade. An album that is part of many people’s adolescence, at least when it comes to my generation (I’m 26). They were pretty popular between goths/emos/punks at the time, which after all isn’t all that long ago, and “The Black Parade” was the album …

Saturation album by rap group Brockhampton

Brockhampton isn’t what you would normally expect from a boy band. Before listening, I didn’t know what to expect from the guys, since this was my first time listening to them. I was recently trying to expand the kind of music that I listen to, so I decided that …

New Radicals - Maybe You’ve Been Brainwashed Too

I stumbled upon this amazing album recently. About 3 months ago I was just searching youtube and came across, You Only Get What You Give. That was their biggest hit and is an amazing song. The band was short lived due to Gregg Alexander not liking the high life, …

Selena Gomez & Marshmello - Wolves (2017 Song)

“Wolves is a journey about finding love,” while that description feels cliche for all the countless songs that shares the same theme, Wolves does indeed sound like a journey. This is Selena Gomez’ second EDM (electronic dance music) after her successful collaboration with Kygo for “It Ain’t Me” earlier …

Ed Sheeran and Beyonce - Perfect Duet (2017 Song)

Ed Sheeran, one of the most popular pop star right now, teamed up with Beyonce, another popular singer today, to deliver what might be an apt title for a song: “Perfect Duet”.
Even though the song was released on March 2017, it was solo. This new one is freshen up …

Melanin - Sauti Sol ft Patorankin

The famous East African, Kenyan born boy band, Sauti Sol are at it again with their new track ‘Melanin’ featuring Patoranking. The song, released only this week, caused a lot of frenzy on social media as it led to sweet and sour opinions about the music video.
‘Melanin’ is a …

Imagine Dragons - Thunder (2017 Song)

It is an undeniable fact that Imagine Dragons is among the most successful bands from 2010 onwards. In fact, their songs such as “Radioactive”, “Demons”, and “It’s Time” enjoyed tremendous success all over the world and became songs that almost every millenial know. Their music is the definition of …

Sam Smith - Too Good At Goodbyes (2017 Song)

I never really knew I have been missing Sam Smith’s identifiable voice until I heard him again recently with a brand new song. I used to hear most of his songs on radios, on Spotify playlists particularly “Pop Ballads”, on being sung by everyone in karaoke because of their …

Lana del Rey - Love (2017 Song)

No one does “vintage music” better than Lana Del Rey. The first time I listened to her debut album Born To Die a couple of years ago I was left awestruck, unable to make anything good the following hour because my mind was filled with, “How the hell did …

Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley - Chained to the Rhythm (2017 Song)

The world’s biggest and arguably the only legitimate popstar left has released the lead single for her 4th studio album. It has been more than 3 years since Katy Perry released a studio album and the wait has certainly been long. She released an Olympic song last year “Rise” …

Ed Sheeran - Castle on the Hill (2016 Song)

There is no doubt that Ed Sheeran is among the most talented singers in the world right now. His ability to write from his personal experiences or from his viewpoint of heavy themes drips heavily in the lines of his songs. What sets him apart from other great singer-songwriters …

ZAYN and Taylor Swift - I Don’t Wanna Live Forever (from Fifty Shades Darker)

Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik - two of the world’s biggest popstars today has made a new collaboration for the highly anticipated erotic film “Fifty Shades Darker”. When I heard this news the first thing that came to my mind was, “Seriously? Their voices will not blend well, what …

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone - City of Stars (from La La Land)

First and foremost, I must say I am the biggest fan of La La Land even though I have not seen the film yet. At the beginning of the year I already knew La La Land will be my most anticipated film. I was really sad when I …

The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk - Starboy (2016 Song)

The Weeknd is definitely one of the most popular hitmaker right now. In case you are not familiar with his name, he was the one responsible for the huge hits “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” which were streaming giants when they were released. He also contributed to …

The Chainsmokers ft. Phoebe Ryan - All We Know (2016 Song)

I just heard The Chainsmokers’ new song and my initial impression was, “WHAT? This is basically a ripoff of their previous song Closer? How could they be so blatant in self-plagiarism?” I immediately hated it because the first thing that came to my mind in why they became such …

Artists of Then, Now & Forever - Forever Country (2016 Song)

Even though I live in a country far from America, I still admit that I am a really big country music fan. I know it’s kind of the “folk” song local to the United States, but there’s something about country music that I really love. I don’t know if …

twenty one pilots - Cancer (2016 Song)

I am a huge fan of twenty one pilots even before they became huge this year. Honestly speaking, they are the most popular rock band right now. I don’t have trouble telling the world I am a fan of them because unlike One Direction, I think twenty one pilots …

Lady Gaga - Perfect Illusion (2016 Song)

Whether you like her music or not, you can’t argue that the name Lady Gaga is/was iconic. I am not really a fan of her whole discography because it went downhill when she released Born this Way - the time when her music became somewhat pretentious for the general …

Mule Variations (Tom Waits Album)

“Mule Variations,” though maybe not his most appreciated album, is probably in my top five by Tom Waits. It’s gritty, folk-based, but not really limited to genre. While not every track did it for me, the ones that did nailed it. And of course, with any album by Waits, …

Sia - The Greatest ft. Kendrick Lamar (2016 Song)

Sia is one of the few older artists that keep on releasing interesting music. Unlike many singers her age, it seems like she was able to “modernize” her sound but still keep it true to her roots. Chandelier and Cheap Thrills proved to be huge hits around the globe …

The Chainsmokers ft. Halsey - Closer (2016 Song)

The Chainsmokers is definitely everyone’s favorite feel-good hitmaker right now. I have been a huge fan since Roses and I would really like to eliminate their song #Selfie from their discography because that song is atrocious and a disgrace in the music industry. So did this new Halsey collaboration …

Fergie - M.I.L.F. $

I’ve never been a huge fan of Fergie nor the Black Eyed Peas, don’t get me wrong I liked a few of their tracks like “Where Is The Love?” and Fergie’s solo carrier has some nice parts as well such as “A Little Party Never Killed Nobody (All We Got)“ …

Little Mix - Secret Love Song ft. Jason Derulo (2016 Song)

I’m not totally a fan of girl groups but something about this song caught my attention. I was originally browsing in Instagram when one of my friends posted a song that what I thought to be original. It had a caption “Secret Love Song” and I listened to it, …

Major Lazer (Electronic Music Band)

I’m not a real Major Lazer fan. I’ve only been really listening to them since 2013, a little before I went to see them in concert for the first time. While I do like a few of their songs, I have to say that I’m not as hugely invested in …

Katy Perry - Rise (2016 Theme Song for Olympics)

If there’s a popstar that I believe could make a hit after hit without tiring the general audience, I will probably say it is Katy Perry. Her presence in the music industry is pretty much felt in the span of almost a decade, (gosh it makes me feel old) …

3 Doors Down (Rock Band)

The rock band “3 Doors Down” was one of the most famous bands back in the early and mid 2000s when I was much younger. At the time when they were popular, I liked several of their songs but I didn’t consider myself as much of a fan. Now that …

David Guetta (Musician)

The musician David Guetta is one of my favourite EDM Disc Jockeys. Even though he’s been around from the early 2000s, I only took notice of him when I really got into Electronic Dance Music in 2010 or 2011. He’s become one of my favourites because I find his mixes …

Hoobastank (rock band)

Hoobastank was one of those bands that I remember had a lot of hits when I was a teenager. I wasn’t a huge fan per se, but I did like a lot of their music. These days, when going through some of their earlier music and listening to some of …

Martin Garrix (Musician)

I really wouldn’t consider myself a huge fan of the musician Martin Garrix. To be honest, up until fairly recently I only knew two songs by him and liked one of the two. However, after all these years I still sincerely hope that he has as much potential as I …

Bring Me the Horizon (Rock Band)

I can’t remember exactly how I found out about the band Bring Me the Horizon, but what I do know was that it was a little after their song “Throne” had been released in 2015. Since then I’ve become enamored with their music, and they’ve become one of my new …

Justin Timberlake - Can’t Stop the Feeling (2016 Song)

Now let’s not kid ourselves, shall we? Justin Timberlake is basically one of the most recognizable pop star this century. I’m not familiar with most of his work when he was with N’Sync and his pre-2010’s solo work but his comeback this decade is just phenomenal. He is getting …

Kanye West (feat. Rihanna) - Famous (2016 Song)

I am not thoroughly familiar with Kanye West’s previous works, but I have listened to his recently released single with Rihanna, “Famous” and I can definitely say that this man is some kind of a genius!
I can certainly remember the time when everyone was angry with Rihanna and him …

twenty one pilots - Heathens (2016 Song)

Holy mother of God, out of nowhere one of my favorite alternative/hipster band twenty one pilots dropped a new song! And not just a new random song, it is a song for one of my most anticipated films this year Suicide Squad! Guys, if you haven’t heard it, I …

Bastille - Good Grief (2016 Song)

I am and will always be a huge fan of alternative music, and one of my favorite alternative bands ever is Bastille. And no, I don’t think they’re french or their band name is related to the famous french holiday, but I do believe they’re name is quite interesting, …

The Chainsmokers ft. Daya - Don’t Let Me Down (2016 Song)

From the opening strum of the song, you will eventually come to a conclusion that it will be great. Every time I hear the opening melody I always have the feeling that the song will be great throughout, and that instinct is always right, the song is pure EDM …

The Lumineers - Cleopatra (2016 Song)

Remember when the Mumford-constructed song “Ho Hey” became a huge worldwide hit last 2012? Well, I still could but I never listened to it more than twice. I am a huge fan of Mumford & Sons and I think copying their signature sound wouldn’t do a band any good. …

Young Guns (band)

After I heard the band Young Guns for the first time on an internet radio station about a year ago, they quickly became one of my favorite bands to date. It made me question first of all why exactly I didn’t hear of them before, and also why they don’t …

Birdy - Wild Horses (2016 Song)

I’ve been too in love with this young girl ever since she released an album full of covers, but mind you, she literally treated those songs like they were her own. She polished alternative tracks so that the general public (who don’t like that genre much) would appreciate it. …

Mumford & Sons - There Will Be Time (Song)

I’m not trying to be biased or anything but I think people should ought to know that I am among the biggest fans of Mumford & Sons in this planet. I literally own all of their albums, as well as other live performances because their music is so much …

Finnish Metal Band, Children of Bodom - I Worship Chaos (2015)

Children of Bodom originated in Espoo, Finland. The drummer, Jaska Raatikainen and high school friend front man Alexi Laiho started the band as young teens. Their project was first named Inearthed, but soon changed the name to Children of Bodom.
The band had this fascination with the murders that occurred …

Tame Impala - ‘Cause I’m a Man

‘Cause I’m A Man is a song off of Tame Impala’s latest album, Currents, and it has been my most played song of the last month. I originally heard the song while watching a YouTube video and paused it so I could figure out what song it was, and …

The Mighty Rio Grande, song by This Will Destroy You

I have always been the kind of person who admires music. Not only is it an art, it finds a way into your soul. Music is able to be related to and in the moment when you find a certain song, you feel like you are no longer alone …


More than a year ago or so, everyone was so devastated to hear that the heartthrob member Zayn Malik of the highly-popular band One Direction decided to leave the band. At that point, no one was sure why he decided to leave a band so popular. However, just a …

Angel Haze Dirty Gold Album

Angel Haze is a relatively unknown rapper, although she has been garnering features on several well-known mainstream songs, such as Nick Jonas’ Numb and Mary Lambert’s Ribcage.
Her debut album Dirty Gold however, is a mini masterpiece in itself. For people like me who enjoy rap because it’s a …
