Earworm (n)—that catchy, though sometimes unwarranted, 2-4 bar melody that won’t seem to get out of your head. My roommates and I are always humming.

Following the artist’s declining presence in the US since his initial splash on to the top charts in 2010, Talk Dirty is Jason Derulo’s shameless attempt to emulate the “Top 40” sound and get back on the map. The album, consisting largely of synthetic beats supporting weak, cookie-cutter rap and entirely too much auto tune,…

Critical Voices: Ingrid Michaelson, Lights Out

In some ways, Ingrid Michaelson is like Nutella: sweet, addicting, and great in endless creative combinations. This has certainly proven to be the case in her latest release, Lights Out, in which the singer trades out her trademark indie style for a more polished, mainstream sound.

Annie are you OK? Will you tell us, that you’re OK? You start nodding your head as you mouth the words to the 1987 hit, Smooth Criminal. But imagine that instead of hearing Michael Jackson’s falsetto voice, you hear—and watch—as two young cellists literally tear it up on stage. That’s right, I said cellists. [youtube…
