    True Romance

    Over the past few years, Charli has released a series of singles and mixtapes, toured the globe supporting the likes of Coldplay, Santigold, Sleigh Bells and Justice and garnered champions from practically every tastemaker blog and magazine on both sides of the Atlantic. She's had 2.5 million views on YouTube, 470k views of new video for 'You (Ha Ha Ha)' (in one month) and over 630k total plays on Soundcloud. It's hard to believe someone so young could achieve so much. Through it all her main focus has always been on making the best possible album she could. This was made possible by working with some fantastic collaborators who helped hone her vision for a dark, emotional pop record including Ariel Rechtshaid (Usher, Major Lazer, Solange), Patrik Berger (Lana del Rey, Robyn) as well as hotly tipped blog favourites Blood Diamonds and J£zus Millions.


    As well as being an artist in her own right, Charli has written and featured on one of the biggest global breakthrough hits of 2012 for Icona Pop. I Love It created an absolute frenzy stateside, having blown up all over the world.


    True Romance shares its title with an unbelievably well-cast 1993 movie written by Quentin Tarantino, who was reassembling cultural detritus way before mash-ups and microblogging. Charli XCX's approach to pop is similarly postmodern (how 90s does that sound?), pulling from moody 80s synth-pop, sassy turn-of-the-millennium girl groups, and state-of-the-art contemporary producers to create something distinctive and immediately memorable. She clearly understands the internet, having shared two original mixtapes and two influences mixtapes before her official full-length, but this carefully pruned set is no data dump. And there you'll see a glimmer of True Romance's most throwback aspect: its evident pop ambition, an overriding sense of an imagined mass audience for music that's radio-ready yet outsider-friendly. It's almost like Napster-- and the filler-crammed album sales model that preceded it-- never happened.


    In fact, by the time Charli XCX was a teenage electro-house devotee, illegal file-sharing's early free-for-all had already given way to iTunes and other legal download services. Robyn had already released her self-titled comeback album. So it might be only natural that Charli XCX would keep the pre-bubble faith that people will pay for emotionally direct, bubblegum-catchy, yet stubbornly left-of-center songs about falling in and out of love. But the generous hooks on the previously released singles here, such as the gospel-kissed prechorus of the yearning Stay Away or the Santigold-savvy lilt of love-and-the-bomb brooder Nuclear Seasons, are extraordinarily welcome just the same. Even better are newer singles such as the gorgeously bitter You (Ha Ha Ha), which inhabits its cloud-rappy Gold Panda sample like they were made for each other, and the almost-as-gorgeously blissful What I Like, which recounts a still-young relationship with the cheeky frankness of Lily Allen or the Streets, and the sing-songy near-rapping of the Spice Girls.


    The several songs on True Romance that hadn't previously surfaced in videos or other releases aren't quite as strong, but they're effective enough to suggest Charli XCX's best work might still be ahead of her. The Todd Rundgren-sampling So Far Away, with the sun-dappled lushness of the Avalanches, is a clear highlight; Charli XCX's vocals are usually plain-spoken, but the anguished break-up plea Set Me Free proves she can reach for Jessie Ware-like dramatics when appropriate. The pitch-shifting no one is forever intro added at the start of opener Nuclear Seasons probably should've been given its own track-- and later on the album it is, when the same backing vocal forms the base of the cloudy, broken-hearted Grins. Elsewhere, the haunted confession How Can I, while solid enough, is a reminder that Charli XCX's lyrics so far tend to fall relatively flat; when, on swooning finale Lock You Up, she sings, It hits me like a ton of bricks, she leaves the clichÉ untweaked.


    And then there's Cloud Aura, a lovelorn, engagingly laid-back bit of groove that lets Grimes' Genesis video co-star Brooke Candy rap horribly about Chris Brown. Candy's guest verse previously appeared on 2012's uneven Super Ultra mixtape, and it was near-universally panned. It isn't any better now. But in an era when too many up-and-comers are all too eager to please, this stubborn refusal to back down displays another quality in short supply: genuine irreverence. The songwriting and production credits on True Romance include Usher's Climax co-conspirator Ariel Rechtshaid and I Love It collaborator Patrick Berger, among others, who also share some credit (and blame). But like 90s pop stars turned 10s pop sophisticates Justin Timberlake and BeyoncÉ, Charli XCX stamps her personality across the entire project, and True Romance suggests she'll be worth following for a while.

    Pollinator (Awaiting Repress)

    You catch yourself when you ask Debbie Harry and Chris Stein,
    one of the most captivating creative pairings in music ever, about the
    creeping gentrification of New York City. You catch yourself because
    Blondie was formed during a 1970s era of urban decay - a time when
    the travails of being in a band, seeking an artistic outlet, or instigating a
    scene as a means of existence was a survival of the fittest among streets
    of heightened crime and social unrest. Certainly, those 1970s New
    York streets have been glamourised in the onslaught of retrospective
    looks at the punk, new wave, disco and hip-hop scenes that found their
    fundamental roots in that era. But it certainly wasn't an easier time to
    live there. The challenges and intensity of the city were just different.


    Blondie emerged the fittest. They've outlived the groundbreaking moment
    that birthed them and have adapted to time, space and industry
    evolution as much as the face of New York itself. Walk into any dance
    club tonight and hear a 'Call Me' or a 'Heart Of Glass'. Talk to
    any hip-hop historian and recall that Debbie was an original Beastie
    Boy who took rap music to the masses when it was still a block party
    concern. Read any tome on the history of punk and they're interwoven
    into the fabric of the one genre that still inspires most and every
    band to pick a name and find a practice space. Their active presence
    in our lives 40 million albums sales and countless accolades later
    (including a Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2006 and
    NME Godlike Genius Award in 2014) isn't something anyone wants
    to take advantage of.


    That's what their 11th album 'Pollinator' sets out to establish. In true
    pop art fashion it's as post-modern as a concept gets and the perfect
    way to move on from 2014's 40th anniversary celebrations and the
    subsequent release of 'Ghosts Of Download'. In 'Pollinator' exists a
    giant feedback loop - one in which Blondie created, then generations
    were inspired, then those generation created and inspired, and are
    now teaming up with Blondie. When the time came for Chris, Debbie
    and drummer Clem Burke to "get the band back together" and make
    an album, choice pioneers from the decades since Blondie's birth
    were called upon to contribute songs for the record, thereby weaving
    their own way into the living, breathing story of the band, a group that
    directly affected their own genetic makeup. The list is enviable and
    reflects the dynamism of Blondie's very own cross-pollinating past:
    Johnny Marr, Sia, Dev Hynes, Charli XCX, Dave Sitek (TV On
    The Radio), Nick Valensi (The Strokes) and The Gregory Brothers
    all lent their creations for Blondie to interpret, each building upon the
    aspect of their heroes that's bolstered their own sound.

    The Fault In Our Stars: Music From The Motion Picture

    The Fault in Our Stars-Music from the Motion Picture is the musical companion to the eagerly awaited drama from 20th Century Fox. The soundtrack gathers new material from some of the Atlantic Records Group's most compelling artists, among them Ed Sheeran, Charli XCX, Grouplove, Lykke Li, and Birdy, who contributes three tracks including a special duet with fellow Atlantic artist Jaymes Young. As if that weren't enough, the album further features a selection of songs from such rising stars as M83, Tom Odell, Jake Bugg, Kodaline, and STRFKR, among others. Grammy Award-winning soundtrack producer Kevin Weaver (Boardwalk Empire, True Blood - Volumes 1 & 2) and music supervisor Season Kent (The Fighter, Entourage, Need for Speed) served as the soundtrack's producers.


    In the film, Hazel and Gus are two extraordinary teenagers who share anacerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them -- and us - on an unforgettable journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous, given that they met and fell in love at a cancer support group. THE FAULT IN OUR STARS, based upon the number-one bestselling novel by John Green, explores the funny, thrilling and tragic business of being alive and in love.


    The film is directed by Josh Boone, written by Scott Neustadter & Michael H. Weber, based upon the book by John Green, and the producers are Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen. Also starring are Laura Dern, Sam Tramell, Nat Wolff and Willem Dafoe.

    Limited Edition Release For Mother's Day


    Bad Moms is a 2016 American black comedy film directed and written by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover). The film stars an ensemble cast that includes Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Jay Hernandez, Annie Mumolo, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Christina Applegate.


    Bad Moms won a People's Choice award for Best Comedy. The film premiered on July 19, 2016, and grossed over $179 million in less than a year and became a surprising blockbuster movie.


    Amy (Mila Kunis) has a seemingly perfect life - a great marriage, over-achieving kids, beautiful home and a career. However, she's over-worked, over-committed and exhausted to the point that she's about to snap. Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities, going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun, and self-indulgence - putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.


    A sequel (A Bad Mom's Christmas) and spin-off (Bad Dads) are scheduled for later this year.


    The soundtrack includes well-known songs and artists like DNCE, KT Tunstall, Janelle MonaÉ, Foreigner, Walk The Moon, Icona Pop feat Charli XCX and many more. Christopher Lennertz (Medal of Honor, Sausage Party, Smurfs: The Lost Village) composed the score music.

    Daggers

    Ex Cops, a nomadic duo featuring Amalie Bruun and Brian Harding, brings the hook-heavy blast of '90s alt-rock into a new era on their second album Daggers. Executive produced by icon-of-form Billy Corgan and produced by Justin Raisen (Sky Ferriera, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue), the record rescues guitar-pop from the bedroom, returning it to the stage it deserves.


    Formed in 2011, the group's first album True Hallucinations, released in early 2013, was a critically-acclaimed collection of sprawling indie-pop. From the exuberant "Spring Break (Birthday Song)" to the band's dreamy debut "You Are A Lion, I Am A Lamb," the John Siket-produced record (Blonde Redhead, Yo La Tengo) was a genre-jumping opening salvo and its wall-to-wall guitars set the tone for their new album.


    Daggers is a musical about-face, though. "We are not afraid of our favorite music anymore," says Harding. "It's pop."


    Billy Corgan, in addition to sharing the band's love of ABBA and taking them to their first wrestling match, provided form and texture to the new tracks over a two-week period in Chicago. The band then took the material to LA for tracking with Raisen and continued collaborating with artists like Ariel Pink, who co-wrote "Burnt Out Love" and features on "Tragically Alright."


    The result reinvents modern rock. "White Noise," with its addictive chorus, merges guitars that could make your teeth ache and a motorik electronic pop pulse. The impeccably-produced "Teenagers" brings club-ready downtown pop to an anthemic peak, while "Black Soap" shifts shoegaze textures to stadium status and "Rooms," one of the album's emotionally-resonant ballads, packs a substantial punch.

    99 Cents

    Clear-Colored Vinyl


    I don't make music for myself, says Santigold, matter-of-factly. I pay a lot of attention to that -- making music that's liked by more people than just myself. In a scene driven by bravado, few musicians would ruminate on the Zen-like balance behind creating truly gratifying art. But exploring that intersection between integrity and intrigue has always been central to this idiosyncratic musician's appeal. That, in turn, has culminated in her latest release, '99¢', an often-playful satire on the singer's brand.


    The '99¢' album cover features me shrink-wrapped among a cluttered mess of things -- my life in a bag, she explains. It is about how everything is a packaged product for sale: how we package ourselves, our lives, our relationships.


    It took roughly eight months to manifest her new vision, with assists from a mix of collaborators with poppier visions such as producers Patrick Berger (Robyn, Icona Pop) and John Hill (Florence and the Machine, Charli XCX), alongside eclectic talents known more for globe-trotting sounds such as Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. She went into the studio with them intending to make a fun record. My last record had a seriousness to it, she says. This time around, it's more playful -- but still a commentary.


    Today, any of her dissents veer toward the contemplative. I wanted to write some songs that felt very personal, she says. Before Santigold, in my other band, I used to write songs like journal entries. And I tried to write a couple of songs on this record where it was really about me and my experience. Though, in true Santigold form, she balances the introspective moments with humorous ones in songs like Who Be Loving Me, a lighthearted boast about fan adoration, produced by Zeds Dead and featuring ILoveMakonnen.


    You could go around being annoyed all the time, or you can go, 'This is crazy and actually funny.' Then you can play around with it, and make great art, she says. This album has required me to be more open, less of a perfectionist. Ironically, that's made the prismatic '99¢' her most ambitious album to date. I realize that my work is a collage, she says. And I can pretty much take that anywhere.

    Revival

    Revival is something of a fresh start for Gomez, both musically and personally. Taking more control over the album, with more writing credits and production oversight, the sound veers away from the bubblegum nature of her early work or the genre-hopping aspects of other releases. Instead, the album sticks pretty close to a club bangers-and-ballads mix with a couple of R&B-inspired jams thrown in.


    Gomez sounds most at home on the uptempo dance tracks like Kill 'Em with Kindness or Me & the Rhythm, where the smoothness of her voice fits in with the vacant abandon of the beat. She also does a fine job on the tracks that slip outside the bounds of the formula, namely on the snappy, sassy Charli XCX-written Same Old Love or the steamy, tricked-out Latin beats and weird synthesizers in Body Heat. These tracks show at her best, dialing up her personality to match the wit and imagination shown in the arrangements.
