It’s Cold This “December”

Slow jams can reveal a lot about a player, and it’s hard to argue with this when listening to a track like Star2’s brooding “December.” Despite its wintry title, “December” has a warmth to its main harmonies that is something to marvel at from the get-go, driven by Star2’s surprisingly melodic take on every verse […]

Sharon Hendrix Says “Hold Me Tight”

A jazzy swing precludes the sultry melodic action soon to come pouring out of our speakers in the new single from Sharon Hendrix, “Hold Me Tight,” but while the beat in this track and its eroticized video is enough to draw us into the music, it’s not the sole source of catharsis in this mix […]

His new single with Lil Poppa, “Real Life,” punctures a hole in the partition between indie pop, hip-hop, trap, and […]

TheDropout Spectrum “Take Off” With New Single

TheDropout Spectrum is living a comic book-like life in the music video for his new song “Take Off,” but while the look of the video is certainly colorful and campy, the content that inspired it is driven more by muscle than wit. Where some have been making the bass more of a point of expression […]

Andrea Plamondon Shares “Only Eden”

Among the beautiful pastureland of the American southwest, we find Andrea Plamondon searching for something in the music video for her new single “Only Eden,” a slice of paradise surrounding her everywhere she turns. While Plamondon’s cerebral concept for this video is rather highbrow, the music itself is anything but inaccessible; frankly, I think it’s […]

Page Sevii Shares “Cheat Codes”

Boldly melodic but still capable of slinging a verse like nobody’s business, Page Sevii’s voice is a good medium between soulful crooning and sleek rapping in the new single “Cheat Codes,” but his golden pipes aren’t the lone reason to give this song a shot this January. Rocking a light beat with little synthetic backing, […]
