Music

Lawrence

Aretha Franklin soul shakes hands with Carly Rae Jepsen pop, and the resulting agreement that Lawrence manages to broker is nothing short of magical.

NIcki MInaj

Stanning is time-consuming, especially depending on who you stan.

Lana Del Rey

Over the years, Del Rey has created an impressive musical vocabulary, at once vintage and totally her own, that has commanded the attention of millions for a few years.

Bhad Bhabie

On Dr. Phil’s show, Bregoli put on a hard-ass attitude to cope with trauma from her home life, and was viciously attacked for it by strangers.

The late Mac Miller

I always wanted to be Mac Miller.

"Earth, Wind, and Fire"

Fall is here, in some form, and it is good.

Strange Beautiful Music

It was a wild, wacky amalgamation of all of the vaguely out-there music being made around Detroit, and a beautiful reflection of the artistic diversity of the city.

Fred Thomas

Thomas’s storytelling here is at its best: he takes a simple interaction and teases something like objective truth out of it.

ALL CAPS FIDLAR

FIDLAR crowds are an interesting amalgamation: The pop punks, skate punks, indie rockers and metalheads all seem to unite in their love for the West coast band.

Dua Lipa

With Lipa’s vocals layered over Silk City’s predictable pop algorithm, “Electricity” is unsurprising, yet not terrible.
