I thought “Problem” is a fine song, but Ariana’s voice is probably not the best match for it. She has a very agile voice that moves quick, but girl doesn’t possess any weight so it makes less of an impact for me. Imagine someone like Amerie is given this. Ariana’s best single is still “Baby I”, not this one.

That is a very good cover and it really doesn’t have any trace of the original whatsoever. But that opening bass sounds so much like one track by The xx. “Crystallized”?

Goddamn this is terrific. I hope both Annie and Katy can continue to produce fierce dance tracks like this

The new Annie song is absolutely smashing. Much better than Tube Stops and Lonely Hearts. Also, don’t forget “Safe With Me” by Sam Smith.

Take out “You wanted a hit”, add in “yeah (crass version)” and this will be a flawless top 10.

When I read the story behind “Helicopter”, my perception of the song has changed forever. I thought it was this dreamy, sort of romantic song, but it’s heartbreaking and sad.

Since “Latch” and “White Noise” are such absolute monsters, this breezy single left me underwhelmed and wanting for more. I guess the vocalist (Eliza) doesn’t compel me as much as Aluna or Sam Smith did.

Anytime a friend of mine asks me “What should I listen to if I want to start this whole indie music thing?”, I’d tell them straight up Kaputt by Destroyer. It’s just a gorgeous, deceptively simple, impeccably made, and extremely ACCESSIBLE. And don’t even get me started on “Bay of Pigs” and how I feel every time those synth start.

Blue Ocean Floor is the best of the bunch. Don’t Hold The Wall comes in close second. I don’t get the whole D’Angelo comparison either.
