These days it’s getting harder to tell the real pop twerps from the hip parodists–both of whom make music sweeter and more dizzying than cherry wine. Take Sweden’s Cardigans, for example: On one hand, they work the same delicious Bacharach lounge jazz and gooey ’60s girl swoons as Pizzicato Five, a group whose retrokitsch is delivered with a big, fake-eyelashed wink. On the other hand, the Cardigans come from a land that gave us Abba and Ace of Base, sincere pop legends if ever there were. The Cardigans, it seems, could go either way, and their subtle blend of pop-for-pop’s-sake with pop-for-joke’s-sake makes their first American release, Life, all the more a modernist gem.

Taylor Swift – 1989 (2014) [FLAC]

Taylor Swift - 1989 (2014) [FLAC] Download

Release Name: Taylor_Swift-1989-2VINYL-FLAC-2014-FATHEAD

When she announced 1989 a few months prior to its October 2014 release, Taylor Swift called her sixth record her first “documented, official” pop album, explicitly severing herself from her country roots. Truth be told, Swift already made the leap from country to pop with 2012’s Red, a nominally country LP distinguished by three songs co-written and produced by Max Martin and Shellback, a team that returns for twice that number on 1989 (Martin has one additional non-Shellback co-write with Swift). Taylor is rarely without co-writers here: only “This Love” belongs to her alone, with the other major collaborators being OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, fun.’s Jack Antonoff, and Imogen Heap. This busy kitchen is typical of modern pop albums, as is the incessant gleam of 1989’s steely productions, every element of which blinds when caught in the sun. Swift claims she patterned the album’s sound after the MTV-ready sound of the year 1989, and while some cuts are conceivably anchored in the era of Debbie Gibson and George Michael — “Shake It Off” is giddy on the momentum of its own pom-poms, the bonus track “New Romantics” effectively conjures the ghost of 1983 new wave, “Out of the Woods” veers into territory previously pioneered by one-video wonder T’Pau (their big hit “Heart and Soul” arrived in 1987, two years before Taylor’s year zero) — this is a modern album through and through. The heavy presence of Martin, who wound up producing all the vocals along with half the record, is something of a feint. Swift tailored 1989 after Tedder’s patterns, constructing nearly every one of the album’s 13 tracks as a glassy, imposing skyscraper that deliberately casts its shadow upon on its predecessor. Considering that this album begins with the fanfare of “Welcome to New York,” an anthem for carpetbaggers reaping the spoils of rampant gentrification, that progressive escalation in size is something to behold, even if the towering scale winds up slightly overwhelming. Warmth, which previously was a hallmark of Swift’s, has largely been substituted by belligerent ice: 1989 emphasizes its reflective surfaces, the hyperactive rhythm tracks — dance by definition but rarely danceable in practice (the effervescent “How You Get the Girl” is an exception) — functioning as an aural accent to the surging synthesizers and processed vocals. Underneath the digital clatter lie some sturdy songs because, at her core, Swift is a canny songsmith, but 1989 isn’t a record about songs, it’s all about sonic style. Taylor telegraphed as much when she called it an “official pop record” and its problems lie in the details, not the big picture. Undoubtedly, she has the charisma and chops to be convincing on both bubblegum and ballads but 1989 is something else entirely: a cold, somewhat distant celebration of all the transient transparencies of modern pop, undercut by its own desperate desire to be nothing but a sparkling soundtrack to an aspirational lifestyle.

Dizzy - Baby Teeth (2018) [FLAC] Download

Release Name: Dizzy-Baby_Teeth-(RMR-105-2)-CD-FLAC-2018-HOUND

Tracks: 10
Duration: 00:42:24
Size: 252.92 MB

On their debut LP, Baby Teeth, Canadian dream pop quartet Dizzy relinquish those titular vestiges of youth, capturing a lush, accomplished sound that could have been produced by a much more mature band. Drawing upon influences like London Grammar, Alvvays, and Stars, Dizzy also channels the spirit of early Lorde with poetic lyrics and a similarly palpable frustration with mundane suburban life. Produced by Damian Taylor (Bjork, Arcade Fire, the Killers), Baby Teeth also draws upon the sounds of artists like Wet, Birdy, and fellow dream pop revivalist Hatchie. Together with the trio of Spencer brothers, vocalist Katie Munshaw delivers a strong performance — delicate without being too precious, wounded but confident — heard on highlights like the atmospheric “Swim,” the sprawling “Pretty Thing,” and the hypnotic “Stars and Moons,” whose thrumming bass and persistent drumming invigorate the otherwise dreamy sonics with a vibrant heartbeat. Introspective moments like the heartbreak-and-healing “Joshua” and the gorgeous acoustic “Pirouette” provide contemplative doses of tranquility on an already relaxed album. Balancing restraint with a keen ear for pop-friendly hooks inspired by Jack Antonoff, Dizzy manage to make quite the opening statement with Baby Teeth.

About the bonus track, “Oh, Babylon”:

“I remember being quite serious about lyrical integrity and wanting to construct a very visual song about a very stormy love affair. I was young and hadn’t quite learned to back myself completely. One of my collaborators absolutely shat all over the song, saying it was really lame and that I would be making a big mistake releasing it, so I left it as I was not as sure of myself then as I am now. I know now everyone has an opinion, but I don’t have to listen. I back myself now and have a good sense for when an alternate or challenging opinion serves me or is just a bit useless to the creative process. I’m delighted to offer the song as a gift for presale buyers of FRUIT”
