Travis Scott

Scott is selling out arenas across the country and, based on the coverage from the first leg of the tour, making sure he pulls out all the stops.

Matt Healy in the 'Sincerity is Scary' video

Whereas The 1975’s most recent videos veered more towards abstract visuals, “Sincerity is Scary” tells a story.

Billie Eilish

Listening to Eilish’s voice is like holding a hot cup of tea in front of the fire — it is comforting most of the time, but occasionally rises with a sharp pang of emotion, burning the listener with momentary glimpses into the singer’s darker thoughts.

Yaeji

Her music is, in summary, presenting an internal and an external state at the same time, presenting the public narrative of nihilistic luxury and accumulation while also showing private doubts, dejection, rumination, anxiety.

Rozwell Kid

The set was constantly veering between genres and emotional states — from satirical to grave, from punk to alt-rock — and the performances never once felt jarring, because they were so anchored by the band’s technical prowess and jovial attitudes.

Anderson .Paak

But ‘Oxnard,’ no longer his come up but his claim to fame, tries to do too much, which makes the 14-track album drag on rather than breeze through.

El Guincho

El Guincho’s samples range Brazil to Ghana, and like the masters of the art in the hip-hop and electronic realm, he is extremely skilled at making his chops and loops organic and lively.

boygenuis

As soon as she walked up to the mic, the crowd would have been stupid to think something big wasn’t about to happen.

Mumford and Sons

Change and artistic development is good and important, but Mumford and Sons may be taking a step in the wrong direction.

Imagine Dragons

There’s really no reason to go out of your way to listen to ‘Origins.’
