Rihanna Drops "Kiss It Better" Video

“Kiss It Better”, gloriously cheesy and Prince-aping, might just be the best song from Rihanna’s Anti—after two-minute stunner “Higher”, and on some days, “Work” (it’s a grower!). Unsurprisingly, the song was next in line to be released as a single. Above you can watch its steamy, black... Continue reading

Review: Explosions in the Sky's The Wilderness

Review: Frankie Cosmos' Next Thing

TALKING ABOUT NEXT THING is like gossiping about a friend. Saying anything about it, good or bad, feels like a breach of privacy, because this record is intimate in a way that very few others are. Instead of being a complete portrait of the artist’s psyche, it’s a collection of bits and pieces that... Continue reading

Review: Young Thug's Slime Season 3

AS A GRAND FINALE to his celebrated trilogy, Slime Season 3 is rather quaint. Eight songs that fail to reach 30 minutes, Young Thug’s latest release pales in comparison to Slime Season 1 and 2. It’s this brevity though that’ll allow anyone curious enough about hip-hop’s latest mystery man to seek... Continue reading

Review: Zayn's Mind of Mine

“PILLOWTALK”, the first solo single from One Direction defector Zayn Malik (now mononymously known as Zayn), was one of the more disheartening recent pop debuts. It didn’t come out long after Justin Bieber’s Purpose, and it seemed as if Zayn’s producers were following that album’s formula. It... Continue reading

Drake Covers Nico's "These Days"

Nico’s version of “These Days” is one of my favorite songs ever, so it’s with great interest that I approached Drake’s cover of the song with Babeo Baggins. And it’s... well, it’s... fine is not the word. Benign? Yeah, it’s benign.Hear it below:Listen to Nico’s... Continue reading

Review: Weezer's "White Album"

THESE GUYS AGAIN. How many albums is that now? 10? Oh, seriously, 10 albums? Well, good for them (him), I guess. There aren’t many Mainstream Rock bands still going, especially on the power-pop end of things, and tune-wise they sure beat the Foo Fighters. More “fun”, as they say. “You don’t have to...
