Album Review: Kylie Minogue – Golden

Album Review: Kylie Minogue - Golden
Kylie Minogue survived the transformation from girl next door to medal-wearing philanthropist, riding storms both romantic and commercial, and still sold some 80 million records along the way, making her glittery home in the Great British public’s hearts. So, when her 14th album’s first Electro Pop single, “Dancing”, appeared, it couldn’t help but provoke a question: why has she decided to become Dolly Parton?

The truth is this unexpected shift has as much to do with Minogue’s innate love for country music. It came, in actual fact, at the suggestion of her A&R man, and she’s admitted she was initially wary. It’s not, after all, an obvious leap, and a cynic might wonder if its inspiration had anything to do with her difficulty cracking the American market, where she’s not dented the Top 40 since 2002.

But Kylie being Kylie, she’s somehow pulled this trick off with oodles of charm, bundles of energy, and no shortage of killer hooks. It isn’t, after all, the first time she’s switched styles. To succeed, of course, she headed to Nashville, bunked up with enough songwriters for a private line dance, then co-wrote every track on the album, making the music her own. So much so, in truth, that any Country influences are buried pretty deep within what is largely a standard, US-centric pop album.

To be honest, there are too many acoustic guitar songs for my taste. Don’t get me wrong but I would prefer an electronic dance music direction as the way it used to be. However, the pumping beat is still there on tracks like “Dancing”, the disco-friendly “Raining Glitter” and “Rollin”. ‘Golden’ is something completely different from Kylie, despite this, I still love her!

Cut Copy

Ladies and gentlemen Cut Copy is back! Listen carefully to the recent single, “Like Breaking Glass”, Dan Whitford’s vocals are as powerful as hypnotic. Add to this, their signature Electro-Pop melodies that are still astonishing and a joy to listen to. What grabs my attention is their less is more philosophy on their visuals. The minimalist aesthetic seems to be part of their new visual identity. Despite this, the Aussie band never disappoint their loyal fans. “Like Breaking Glass” will be featured on their sixth studio album. Moreover, lyrics talk about the conflicted feelings of a relationship that has begun to unravel. Not to mention, the 80s vibes, and the magical synths are 100% eargasmic. These guys deserve some kudos for making such nice tracks as usual. Enjoy!

Lyrics

When the world comes down
and breaks in two
I could dance in the silence
and think of you
but love can be cold
our love is cruel
with the light there is darkness
that runs right through

Every heart beats now,
it beats like the sound of breaking glass
every violent breath
hurts, so I know I’m still in love

A heartbreaking song
played for too long now
I’m singing to you
but sinking it’s true, oh
wanna jump out of the car
jump out of the car, oh-oh
but I can’t open the door
can’t open the door, oh-oh

Every heart beats now,
it beats like the sound of breaking glass
every violent breath
hurts, so I know I’m still in love
every heart beats now,
it beats like the sound of breaking glass
every violent breath
hurts, so I know I’m still in love

Now I’m crashing down for you
Now I’m crashing down for you
down for you…

By, by your side
by, by your side
by, by your side
by, by your side

Every heart beats now,
it beats like the sound of breaking glass
every violent breath
hurts, so I know I’m still in love, still in love…

Land’s Album ‘Down By This River’ Is Packed With A Sheen Of Melancholy

Published

Land
The new album ‘Down By This River’ by Italian duo Land, could be the place to start if you’re into modern songs that sound like the 1980s. I would describe the whole record as dark Electro-Pop, with a touch of the classic post-punk/new wave era heavy on synths. Without a doubt, ‘Down By This River’ is packed with a sheen of melancholy too. I can guarantee a deep tuneful singing voice is what seduce listeners from start to finish. Moreover, it would be no exaggeration to say these guys have been compared to the likes of Joy Division and Depeche Mode.

It is a good thing that now more than ever, bands and singers like them are reviving old-school sonic elements such as analog synths and industrial-esque vibes. Certainly, this is an album you can’t stop playing. Land make room for imaginative lyrics that will let you enter into their fantasy world. What makes this album cooler than average is also the futuristic sound. In conclusion, you don’t need a time machine in order to relive old memories when the Golden age hits of synthesizers topped the charts. Today you can enjoy much of that thanks to this compilation of seven nostalgic and unique tracks.

LGBT Artist, Rocki Mara Debuts New Single "Your Body Is Amazing"

Newcomer artist Rocki Mara divides his time among cosmetology and music. It seems the city of Norfolk, Virginia finally has a fresh face within the Indie Pop scene! Armed with an electro-synth groove, the recently launched single “Your Body Is Amazing”, actually has a purpose. It is destined to teaching the power of loving yourself. Additionally, Rocki’s mission is to inspire the LGBT youth to follow their own dreams no matter what.

It is no wonder that he got himself into this musical journey since the start of the quarantine period in May. That’s exactly, what great minds do in order to stay creative. I think today is precisely the right time when cool projects are evidently starting to emerge. On a side note, there’s no doubt, Pop queens such as Lady Gaga and Britney have inspired his style. In the music video, he can be seen in the comfort of his bedroom performing this tune with a lot of attitude. Definitely, “Your Body Is Amazing” music moves our feet and tickles the senses.
