[Pop] LCMDF – Glitter

LCMDF
Glitter

The Helsinki to Berlin duo LCMDF shine bright with their latest release. The colorful “Glitter” came out through Playground Music Scandinavia, so it is currently available on digital platforms. You’ll want to get it.

“Glitter” isn’t your usual pop record, especially from an American standpoint. In nearly every way it is unique from the details of the instrumental to the performance. It does have an uplifting style that artists in their field have gone for, but LCMDF manage to stand taller than their counterparts with a dynamic single that gets sweeter the more you listen to it.

Madge – Alice [TMN PREMIERE]

“Alice” is one hell of a trip. Punchy, quirky, unique, and deliciously poppy, it’s my first experience with LA-based, D-I-Y producer Madge, and it’s one I couldn’t easily shake after only one listen through.

Opening with what sounds like a sample from an classic suspense movie, it’s impossible to peg where the track is going to end up. Even beyond that, you’ll still be guessing after the crunchy guitar riff and childlike voices kick in. In fact, you might expect someone to come in and lay down a hot hip hop verse. Instead though, you’re welcomed into softly-sung, ethereal vocals. It’s such a jarring juxtaposition, and one that works beautifully.

Those alternating sections, of both her and and the children’s playful chatter, are a purposeful representative of the destructive voices in Madge’s head. Seemingly normalized by the playful, funky bassline, and flute-like synths, it’s an intent-based structure that has layers beyond what you’ve come to expect from your run-of-the-mill pop.

“Alice” explores themes of trauma, pleasure, and shame as experienced in the form of a personal poltergeist. Almost all the lyrics have double entendre and the narrative is both literal and metaphorical. Alice is dangerous even though she’s dead – the nature of trauma itself.

Madge just recently broke into the scene, with “Alice” being her third release. Make sure to keep tabs on her and more intriguing releases in moving forward.

[Pop] SHY Martin – Forget To Forget

SHY Martin
Forget To Forget

One of our favorite pop stars has graced the world with another smash single. SHY Martin is one of the more memorable figures in the current landscape of pop music and she continuously dazzle us with her work, including her latest “Forget To Forget.”

“Forget To Forget” comes after her Moombah-inspired “Bad In Common” that we’ve still been playing out to this day. Her latest is up for continuous rinsing as well as it is another example of SHY’s infectious sound. From top to bottom this record is masterful and while SHY leads the record with her stunning vocal, the instrumental keeps kicking strong with its own catchy allure. If you were looking for your next favorite artist, you found her.
