Twinnie’s debut album ‘Hollywood Gypsy’ is a lil slice of country joy

Twinnie Hollywood Gypsy Album Review download mp3 free Twinnie country music

Finally – Twinnie has dropped her debut album, ‘Hollywood Gypsy’! Ever since I heard the whiskey-infused ‘Better When I’m Drunk’ an entire year ago, I’ve been dying to hear what else Twinnie had up her sleeve, and the country-pop starlet didn’t disappoint. Opening with ‘Type of Girl’, an infectious pop bop with a distinct country twang echoing throughout, Twinnie makes the tone of the record very clear: tongue-in-cheek, joyous and love-dazed. She tackles themes of romance, unrequited love and identity throughout the 12-track record, all with a sly little wink. Throughout the entirety of ‘Hollywood […]

It’s ‘Day & Age’s birthday! That’s right, eleven years ago today, The Killers released this quirky little masterpiece into the world, and us Victims are all the better for it.

Until their new album drops in 2020, I take a look back at their most intriguing addition to their discography. Lead singer Brandon Flowers once described ‘Day & Age’ as being the band’s “most playful record”, […]

‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ is classic Mika, wrapped up in glittering, unwavering joy (Album Review)

After a slew of sugar-coated hits like ‘Lollipop’, ‘Big Girl (You Are Beautiful)’, ‘Love Today’ and ‘Grace Kelly’, Mika is back with his fifth studio album, the personal-titled ‘My Name Is Michael Holbrook’ (and yes, that is his real name). Does the album title mean that Mika’s stripped himself down from the glittery persona? Well yes, and no. And does it mean album number five is the dreaded “this is my most personal album yet” spiel? Again, it’s a mixed bag. The album’s opener, ‘Tiny Love’, is the standout of the album, by far. The […]

Fuck it, I love ‘Normal Fucking Rockwell!’ (Album Review)

lana del rey norman fucking rockwell! review ldr nfr! free online listen fuck it i love you the greatest hope is a dangerous thing lana review pop heads popheads

Lana Del Rey is back! Queen of feels, romantic, hopeless lyrics and singing on tire swings. Her latest album is a solid entry into her plethora of Hollywood sadcore records; juggling romanticism, cynicism and tender, fragile positivity all at once. It’s an unusual concoction, but it’s one that Lana, with her unique touch of magic, manages to make work. Lana’s fresh out of fucks to give on ‘Norman Fucking Rockwell!’, and it’s liberating, both musically and personally.     On the title track, Lana opens the album with the lyric: “God damn man child, you […]

She’s dropped the ‘Diamonds’, but she’s still got her shine. Marina is back with her fourth studio album, titled ‘Love + Fear’. Dropped in two parts – ‘Love’ and ‘Fear’ respectively – the ‘FROOT’ songstress claims: “It’s true that there only two primary emotions: love and fear, but it is more accurate to say that there is only love or fear for we cannot feel these two emotions together at exactly the same time. They are opposites.” As such, she suggested that we listen to the parts of the double album separately, in order to […]

Panic!’s ‘Pray For The Wicked’ is an abrasive celebration of hedonism (Album Review)

Panic at the Disco Pray for the Wicked review fuck a silver lining saturday night king of the clouds

Reignite your inner emo kid, because Panic! are back with a brand-spanking new album. The album opens with a peaceful arrangement of strings, following on from their latest release ‘Death Of A Bachelor’; taking influence from big-bang swing, infused with Sinatra-like tunes. The song quickly disappates from that trend though, with lead man Brendon Urie declaring “fuck a silver lining” as the record’s opening line, while the production on the track retreats to a what abrasive, manic sound. That’s not to say it isn’t effective – it certainly opens the album up with a bang, […]
