Meghan Trainor “Mom”

For my mom. Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

Pentatonix “No” (Meghan Trainor Cover)

What these 5 do with their voices is some serious Harry Potter-like magic.

Meghan Trainor “No”

Upon hearing this song for the first time I was quickly reminded of the golden age of female pop singers aka the late 90’s/early 00’s ladies aka Britney, Destiny’s Child, Dream, Aguilera, etc. “No” takes me back to that time and I’m currently #obsessed. This song is “untouchable.”

Album Recommendations

Since it’s June and we are 6 months into the year (already?!?) I thought I’d do what all the cool kids do and list some great albums I listened to in 2015 so far. The criteria for ending up in this list is simple – me liking the majority of the album. And not just the singles, but the deep cuts and the middle-men. If you’re looking for some new music, I’d suggest spending some time diving into these 3 artists + their recent albums:

Meghan Trainor’s Title

This album was a sweet surprise for me when I listened to it in its entirety one random day in the office. Her throwback, old-school vibes are evident, but what I enjoy even more than that are her brilliant, often witty lyrics. Upon hearing some of the verses, I can’t help but be reminded of the fabulous Pink – they have a similar no-time-for-bullshit, don’t-fuck-with-me-but-if-you-do-good-luck-with-that aura about them, which I personally find inspirational. The collection of songs that make up Title are fun to sing-a-long to, yes, but they are powerful statements about love and relationships and being a woman. And as a woman, I’m all about this album.

Standout Song: “Walkashame”

For those who like: Ponytails. The 50′s. Bass (well, obviously).

Tove Styrke’s Kiddo

I’ve said it and I’ll say it again, Sweden produces some kick-ass female pop stars. This album isn’t straight up pop though – it has a bit more spunk to it with reggae undertones (most prominently showcased in “Borderline”) and electro-pop beats (heard in ”Burn”, which is a spectacular song btw). I missed a chance to see Tove in NYC recently but I hope to not make that mistake again.

Standout Song: “Ego”

For those who like: Southeast Asian motif. Braids. Mai Tai’s.

Purity Ring’s another eternity

This album takes you to an otherworldly, celestial place. With bewitching vocals and dream-like beats, another eternity is purely magical. If there was ever a time when we could send bands to play in outer space, Purity Ring would get my vote hands down. If you want to escape reality for a bit, turn this record on.

Standout Song: “heartsigh”

For those who like: Aliens. Astronomy. Daydreaming.

Meghan Trainor “Dear Future Husband”

#Amen

Meghan Trainor “Lips Are Movin”

Super fun song I’ve been known to sing along to in my car. And it’s nice and refreshing to hear new music from her since, let’s face it, Bass has been overplayed everywhere.
