#albumoftheday / REVIEW: MELANIE MARTINEZ: CRY BABY
I could go on and on about how Melanie Martinez should have won her season on The Voice but I’ll simply say this: she was far too talented — as a unique *artist,* not just a singer — to win a show where the singers perform cover songs almost exclusively. At the time,...Read more
#songoftheday / REVIEW: N-A-I-V-E-S – “Horizon”
N-A-I-V-E-S was formed in 2012 when the stars aligned perfectly and all that jazz and Marc Jacc, a super talented multi-instrumentalist and the former singer of the French band Megasushi (Paris, 2006 -2012), met Lapo Frost, a hip Italian producer and bass player (Frost, Fanny Games) who was...

#albumoftheday / REVIEW: HOLLYSIZ: MY NAME IS
Hollysiz is the playful moniker for French actress Cécile Cassel’s music career. My Name Is, is her debut album and it’s been gradually taking the world of pop by storm ever since it was first released in France during September of 2013. In fact, it did so well in France that they re-released...Read more
#songoftheday / REVIEW: Calvin Harris & Disciples – “plagiarizeHow Deep Is Your Love”
No, it's not a Bee Gees cover... It's an original club banger by Calvin Harris featuring Disciples. To be honest, this is the first time I've ever heard the Disciples, so I don't know if the singer simply lent her voice to this track or if...
A LOVE IS POP VIDEO PREMIERE: NATHASSIA – “CONTAGIOUS”
To quote the song itself, "Red alert - it's contagious!" If ever a song summed itself up perfectly, it's half Dutch, half Indian singer/songwriter Nathassia's ultra-hot new single, "Contagious," which we are very excited to be premiering on Love is Pop! It starts off with dark and...
#songoftheday / REVIEW: CARLY RAE JEPSEN: WARM BLOOD
"Warm Blood" is the fifth track to be released from Carley Rae Jepsen's upcoming album E•MO•TION (out August 21st) and it's easily the best. Produced and co-written by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, it sounds exactly like what you'd expect a collaboration between them to sound like, which,...
#songoftheday / REVIEW: WHITE SEA: “STAY YOUNG, GET STONED”
White Sea is an enigma. "Stay Young, Get Stoned" is your new mantra. Understood? OK, so you don't have to get stoned to enjoy this track, but it probably helps. And, stoned or sober, it should help you feel young with its au...
#albumoftheday / NEW REVIEW: MIGUEL: WIlDHEART
If I’m being entirely honest, I expected this album to be incredibly dull. I’m not a fan of your average R&B and that’s what I thought this album would be, based on songs and collaborations by Miguel that I heard in the past. But, wow, this is an experimental mix of R&B, pop,...Read more
SINGLE SPOTLIGHT: IAMX: “HAPPINESS”
IAMX is the solo moniker of Chris Corner, formerly of Sneaker Pimps. (I only mention Sneaker Pimps because they were one of my favorite bands and I still love them.) Thus far, IAMX has released five studio albums along with a live album, a remix album and a few EPs. His first release...Read more
JEERS / VIDEO: MADONNA: “BITCH I’M MADONNA” FEAT. NICKI MINAJ
First of all, I'm actually a fan of Rebel Heart. I think it's Madonna's best album since American Life (criminally under-rated). But "Bitch I'm Madonna" is terrible. The song and video. The lyrics of "Material Girl" have more substance than the lyrics of this...
KILLER AUDIO: Class Actress – “GFE”
Welcome back, Class Actress! What an amazing tune! Pure electropop bliss. Lovely mix of warm electronic beats and glimmering synth. And the vocals... Sweet and sultry, ripened to perfection... The girlfriend experience has never sounded better!...
