Bishop Briggs | Jekyll & Hide | Single Review

Island Records Rating: Thumbs up Bishop Briggs’ new single “Jekyll & Hide,” from her newly released album Champion, is a masochistic song about chasing after a lover like the eponymous two-in-one duo who is “Sweet and then you’re sour, changes by the hour / Never

Selena Gomez | Look at Her Now | Single Review

Interscope Rating: Thumbs down Selena Gomez’s new single, “Look at Her Now,” had the potential to be a wonderful tune entailing growth after a tough relationship. Instead, it’s an over auto-tuned nightmare that sounds like it would’ve been produced at the peak of 2011. The

Milky Chance | Daydreaming | Single Review

Elektra Rating: Thumbs down “Daydreaming” from 2014 staple, Milky Chance, does exactly what those familiar with the band would expect: indecipherable lyrics over a stoner rock beat. Space-like synth opens the track with lead singer Celmens Rehbein mumbling through a simple drumkit, making it easy

Dan + Shay | 10,000 Hours | Single Review

Warner Nashville Rating: Thumbs down Country duo Dan + Shay’s new single “10,000 Hours” featuring Justin Bieber is pretty much the exact same song as “(I Wanna Hear Your) Secrets” by the fictional boy band Boys For Now from Bob’s Burgers. The song features the

Mike Posner | Slow It Down | Single Review

Island Records Rating: Thumbs Up Mike Posner’s new single “Slow It Down” is a far cry from his old hit “Cooler Than Me.” Opening with piano and backed up by chill beats, “Slow It Down” is packed full of meaning, such as with the lyrics,
