On one of the screens outside Madison Square Garden last night, there was an image that slid through between every couple of ads: an image of U2 with the words “I just got a place in New York” — a lyric from All That You Can’t Leave Behind’s “New York” — and “Welcome Home U2!”… More »

A new Sky Ferreira album would be very welcome right now, but we’re going to have to wait for a bit.

Skylar Spence’s Prom King is shaping up swimmingly. The erstwhile SAINT PEPSI impressed us with his summer jam of a lead single “Can’t You See,” and its follow-up reminds us that his expertise extends beyond neon dance-party music. “Affairs” is a misty chillwave/synthpop breakup lament marked by echo-laden vocals and the melancholy refrain, “That’s the… More »

The video for hi… More »

Astral synths abound, gossamer sheet… More »
