Methods Out of Favor

Methods Out of Favor

by glenn mcdonald

Spotify has a full recording studio in our Stockholm office, where I was this week. It's probably pretty cool to record there. I did this on an iPad on the flight over, and sang the vocals later in my hotel room into the stock iPhone earbud mic. Lagom.

Femme d'affaires

Femme d'affaires

by Marema

"Far from being yet another artist, Maréma is a new gain for our universal musical heritage." So claims her bio. Based on one song I can't immediately say that's wrong.

"Let It Go (Dave Aude Radio Mix)"

"Let It Go (Dave Aude Radio Mix)"

My daughter says this is bad. "Bad! 'Let It Go' is supposed to be a little bit mysterious, and this is not mysterious at all." Which is true, but I still like it.

Eurydice

Eurydice

by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart

If you're going to name your band "The Pains of Being Pure at Heart", you've kind of committed to pretension, at which point titling songs after muses isn't really going to make things any worse. Even if they're chiming, magnificent, breathless post-Sarah pop songs.

Dead Inside

Dead Inside

by Paper|Cities

This band used to be called The Atlantic, which is a bad name. They changed it to "Paper|Cities". Which was the name of an older band from Kansas City, so that's hardly any better. But it made them turn up under "kc indie" in my new-release genre-categorizer, so now I'll be sad when they finally pick a decent name and I don't notice.

Royals

Wow is that a goofy video. Appropriately, given that Terabrite exists to do cheap-thrill pop-punk covers of hit songs. But sometimes cheap thrills are just cheap because of economies of scale. I love this version of "Royals" in a way that makes me like the original more, too, and what greater achievement is there for a cover?
