“Nick Miller” – Kat Saul

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 3.37.11 PM

Oh so cute. Kat Saul’s distinct voice and viable lyricism wrap this 2:27 ditty into a short and sweet super-personal love ballad. We think this one tells more about the world as per the artist than the artist herself. We didn’t know how much we needed a Nick Miller in our life and now all we want to do is find him. #issabop

“Damn Good Liar” – Emily Burns

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 3.38.53 PM

Issabop writer 1: “OMG I love the Emily Burns song.”
Issabop writer 2: “Emily Burns is crap. It’s dumb and so simple and safe and we’ve literally heard everything in it somewhere before, in bad safe boring pop songs… that were also flops.”

Let us know what you think of this song in the comments! #issaight

“21st Century Machine” – Catie Turner

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 3.38.10 PM

Well, well, well… is someone outshining their 15 minutes of fame? American Idol hasn’t been known to turn lewks (create superstars) in the last several seasons, but this one might break the curse. Catie Turner was a quick fan favorite when she auditioned with this song back in March, and now it’s released officially. There is something so honest about her writing, she’s not trying to be anything she’s not. And what she IS, just a normal girl, translates so effortlessly. Basically, social media is killing us all. #issabop

“On Me” – Meek Mill ft. Cardi B

Screen Shot 2018-11-30 at 3.38.27 PM

We thought… Why are our speakers yelling at us? Oh, Meek. Waddup. The thing about being a good artist is that sometimes your music is good and boring at the same time. Another banger for Meek’s hype train. Nothing special. Cardi B is still our girl. #issaight

“Control” – Feder ft. Bryce Vine & Dan Caplen

This is the week of French DJs! French DJs sound really cool and make you feel really cool for listening to them, even when what they put out sounds kinda familiar. It’s a cup of coffee and a croissant, which you’ve had before, but much like in France, it’s a REALLY GOOD CUP OF COFFEE AND CROISSANT. #issabop

“Sail Away” – Møme ft. Ricky Ducati

Screen Shot 2018-11-23 at 3.59.39 PM.png

The phrase “I’m Not Okay” is the rallying cry of people in their twenties who use the socials to try and tell you that everything’s okay. French chillwave artist Møme won’t waste any of your time with his electronic based compositions. This song is so bright, elegant and dreamy. An anthem tailor made for festivals where you just paid $100 for parking and $20 for a salad. #issaight

“Jackson Pollock” – Grandtheft ft. Cadence Weapon

Screen Shot 2018-11-23 at 4.01.08 PM

Ok, this is fun, but where will we ever enjoy this as much as the Sahara Tent? Kind of needs the light show, the ear-ringing sub bass and that “where are my friends, I only have 1% and I’m peaking!!” vibe to really feel the full effect. I guess if you’re throwing a house party and invest in a good strobe light, throw this on the playlist. It’s catchy, and the phrase “Going wall to wall like I’m Jackson Pollack” makes more rhythmic sense than saying “I’m preserving a dissected tiger shark in formaldehyde like Damien Hirst!” #issaight
