Resonance
Rebel Heart is a testament and reinforcement to Madge’s relevance.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.42.03 PMEven with a premature leak and subsequent release of six tracks last year, Rebel Heart is probably Madonna’s most varied and satisfying record in years. Offering upbeat EDM cuts, lush ballads and catchy pop ditties, she proves even to new audiences that she can still dominate the pop industry.

CURATOR’S CHOICE

Swervedriver’s first album in 17 years plays like the ‘90s never ended.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.50.14 PMMy Bloody Valentine finally releasing an album after a 22-year hiatus may have resurrected shoegazing. Slowdive are back together, RIDE has reunited and now Swervedriver have dropped their first album since 1998. I Wasn’t Born To Lose You somehow sounds very ‘90s without succumbing to predictable retro trappings.

Daddy Yankee’s Sígueme y Te Sigo comes through with another reason to leave it all on the dance floor.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.46.45 PMLive for the weekend. Bodies moving as one. You’re that couple that everyone is watching like – damn, are they on something? But you’re not on anything, you’re in love…then the lights come on and the valet brings around Daddy’s Lambo.

 

 

Second album of dreamy, big beat “future-pop” from this Canadian boy-girl duo. 

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.47.17 PMOn Another Eternity, Purity Ring more than fulfills the pop promise of their debut, offering up an even more polished and poppy iteration of their experimental electro-pop bliss. Witch-house textured synths buzz beneath pounding beats, glimmering electronics, effervescent atmospherics and sweetly emotional, crystalline vocals.

Luke Bryan’s newest release continues his celebration of Spring Break.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.47.55 PMSpring Break…Checkin’ Out furthers Bryan’s foray into crafting the penultimate Spring Break anthems. Of course it wouldn’t be a proper new country release without musing on an American made 4X4 vehicle, and that’s where first song “My Ol’ Bronco” delivers. “You And The Beach” boasts big beats and barbed hooks.

 

Farruko is not a rookie.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.48.44 PMHe’s one of the most sought after vocalists in Latin urban music. Everyone is checking for him and his voice is everywhere. So if everyone is watching you, how do you keep ‘em guessing? You holler at your pana Yandel, take your top-ten single to the next level and release the Lejos De Aquí (Remix). 

 

Comedian Cocoa Brown is One Funny Momma.

Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 10.49.37 PMActress and Tyler Perry protégé Cocoa Brown returns to her standup comedy roots with her debut album, One Funny Momma. The comic applies her exuberant, earthy delivery to navigating the complicated rules for cheating on a spouse, handling an “Erykah Badu-style” childbirth at home and getting rich with a combo wings restaurant/nail salon.

Musicologist

I dig all things ‘60s: garage punk, obscure psych, Stax and Motown soul stompers. My first CD purchases were REM’s Out of Time and Boyz II Men’s Cooleyhighharmony. I still own both! I’m pretty much immersed in music – hitting up local record shops, catching live shows at crusty dives, and DJing around town at various venues and bars.
