“Heartbreak Drugs” – GOLDN

This song brings a cool heat with sassy swagger undertones like hip hop dry ice. We’re always hesitant about songs with the word “drugs” in the title (cheesy)! But we like the vibe. The audio cotton candy with it’s catchy hi-end poppy lo-fi lumbering groove gives us repose. #issaight Advertisements Listener score:

“Beach House” – The Chainsmokers

The Chainsmokers are back with another song that feels exactly like the Chainsmokers, so at least they’ve got that going for them. Beach House is soul searching and peculiarly honest-sounding. We’re hoping they’re just exhausting all their musical bases before they break into their next phase like a beautiful butterfly — which will be phenomenal…. Continue Reading →

“Velvet Rope” – Rita Ora

Pro-tip: if you’re gonna strip it back to the basics, maybe lay off the autotune. With that said, there is some soul tucked in here, albeit contrived, but we’ll take it where we can get it. Rita has had the hardest time breaking into the American market, so we applaud effort, but still waiting for… Continue Reading →

“Hurts Like Hell” – Madison Beer ft. Offset

Hey! Madison Beer does a phenomenal job containing the ravings of the 3rd Migo. Everything we’ve yet to be impressed with about Offset is covered by the wildly enjoyable Madison Beer in this contemporary low-fi take of that bitter, passive agressive sentiment — fuck you, ex. Although, in a world of literally Ariana putting her… Continue Reading →

“Werewolf” – Quinn XCII ft. Yoshi Flower

Kid friendly, DILF approved! Quinn XCII sounds like he is ready for pop radio. Another example of why this website is so important. It separates the bops from the *not* bops. This is a beautiful song from Quinn XCII and Yoshi Flower. But it ain’t a bop. #issaight Listener score:

“Walk Alone” – Rudimental ft. Tom Walker

This song is pop psychotherapy, inspirational enough for you to mistake every single person walking briskly alongside you on a Manhattan sidewalk to be a kindred spirit, a shoulder to cry on, or an ear to lend. Hint: most of them are not, but you still get the feels, yeah? #issaight Listener score:

“L.M.F.” – Smino

So you say you loved the Disney movie The Lion King? Well then this song, “L.M.F” (which stands for Lion Mufasa), is perfect for you! This guy just threw up on the rhythm. He gets down on the track, cuts through the middle, and drives it home like a train with that lyrical miracle. #issaight… Continue Reading →

“Girl of the Year” – Allie X

Probably our most favorite recent Allie X song. By mashing together some vapor waves and diamonds, Allie X offers up this lovely gleaming ballad that imprints on the listener what following your dreams and reaching the stars (if only temporarily) really feels like. #issaight Listener score:
