Pop Smarts – July ’14

NEW FEATURE ALERT! – Regular listeners to my podcast on [edit] radio will know that my previously pretentious prejudice against commercial pop music has somewhat softened over the past two years. I don’t know how and when it happened, but at some point I stopped spending so much time worrying about where the art came from…


Almost Famous: Chlöe Howl

Having now featured in no fewer than seven of my [edit] radio podcasts, a blog properly introducing you to the talents of Chlöe Howl is a little overdue. Hailing from a village on the outskirts of London commuter town Maidenhead, the 19 year-old pop singer is signed to Columbia Records (who recognised her talent at 16)…

Whilst it didn’t really seem that the music buying public minded – both songs were stone cold…


Used: The Postal Service ‘Turn Around’

“Big Dreams / False Starts” Released as part of the 10 year anniversary re-issue of the band’s seminal (and only) album Give Up, the Postal Service’s Turn Around was pretty much my personal favourite song of 2013. Recorded at the same time as the original work back in 2003, the track has the same interplay of…


[edit] radio podcast 237

  He’s been enjoying the fruits of the summer release schedule recently and as such this weeks podcast with Ben Marwood is an absolute cracker in which people who smile are sprayed with mace, turtles are trampled and animals sunbathe to the sound the best in music new and used. Artist “Song” [Album] Trampled By…


New: Skrillex ‘Recess feat. Kill the Noise, Fatman Scoop & Michael Angelakos’

“Fight till you can’t fight” Formulaic yet jarring, predictable yet adrenaline filled, Skrillex’s music presents something of a Catch-22 situation for music critics, one where ample ammunition is provided to both the “he’s shit” and “he’s amazing” lines of thought. However, no matter which side of the ‘Skrillex Paradox’ you fall I’d urge you strongly to put aside any prejudices…
