And it wouldn’t hurt to loosen up every now and then. Cher is Cher, and she’s fabulous. Whenever the conversation leads up to her, that’s the ultimate conclusion. Come on, not every single thing you put on has to carry this straightforward arty vibe, right? Read more

Heading back to earth. Houston, we have a problem: sometimes it’s hard to say what exactly doesn’t work when two parties want the same thing but, for some reason, are just not able to make it happen. Like with the music industry – the business model seems to be pretty uncomplicated: artists sell, people buy, yeah? Read more

“No Witness” is a bit like a sip of vodka, offered up by a splendid, rapacious stranger on a slow night train from Lviv to Odessa. Or perhaps a street cut drug. You are not sure what’s safer – to go for it or refuse the invitation. And you somehow feel that the choice is only some rhetorical issue, for your fate has already been decided: you’ll be rendered blind or end up in some kind of paradise. Read more

Oh, we love ourselves a few good pop tunes. They can pump up your energy sky high, regardless of their topic. (Just take a look at what we have here: in “Every Day” there’s this intense heartbreak, while in the second one, “Nothing To Lose,” there’s a story of how one can screw up a relationship that was actually really something. Pretty miserable, isn’t it, so why are we dancing?) Read more

When you play yourself LP’s 2014 album for the very first time, and when you hear its bursting opening track, “Heavenly Light,” it prepares you for everything but for how the album ends: with a quiet, gentle ukulele, tender whistling, and vocals with something inconsolable to them. Only then, after the last subtle notes of this last song, “Forever For Now,” are gone, can you understand that you’ve been taken on a journey. Read more

The title of The Veronicas’ third album, then to-be-released, was “Life on Mars.” It was mid-2012 when it became obvious to everybody that it was going to take another minute to put it out, and so they decided to release a teaser single, a song called “Lolita.” It’s an upbeat pop-meets-trance song, which, well, is not our cup of tea when it comes the genre. And maybe the track itself is a little bit too much for us, but!… Read more
