“majikaL girlfrienD​+​*​.​!” – LoneMoon

OMGGGGGGGGGoodness this album is awesome. LoneMoon does it again with another absolute banger of an album in the follow up to Indie Pong-acclaimed album “kit@Nai”, which I was fortunate enough to interview LoneMoon AKA Luna about last year in one of my favorite interviews to date. This is one of those albums where every single

2+2 Reviews: Easter 2021 Edition (Harakiri For The Sky, Bodom After Midnight, Genghis Tron, and Xiu Xiu featuring Sharon Van Etten)

Welcome to the Easter Weekend Edition of 2+2 with BPMHill and George Folz.  Thanks for coming back or joining in for the first time.  I can’t say that any of these tracks have a particular Easter vibe; hell the first track out of the gate is most definitely about some dark shit.  That said, nothing

Memo’s Monthly Favorites: March 2021

Hello everybody! Happy April! Somehow we are already one quarter done with 2021. How did that happen? This past month was jam-packed with great music.

Tuesday Time Machine: March 2021

Hello and welcome! For those reading my column for the first time, these monthly playlists which I’m re-visiting (and continuing to create) came about as a result of an idea I had back in January of 2010: an idea that woud see me create one 80 minute playlist a month. The reason for doing this

NEW EP: On ‘Welcome to the Witching Hour,’ MyKey Makes Space for Late-Night Thinkers

There’s something old-school about MyKey. Maybe it’s the fact he doesn’t really know how TikTok works, despite being on the Gen Z cusp age of 24 (and almost 25). Or maybe it’s because when he hops on our video call, he informs me that he’s on his grocery store weekly tour, checking out what four

NEW EP: On ‘Cruise Control,’ Ben Kessler Explores Introspective Pop with Energetic Production

Philly native and Nashville lingerer Ben Kessler is making indie pop music that melds two inherent truths of today: as humans, we are looking inwards more than ever before, while in music, our sonic landscape continues to push boundaries with digitized, vibe-y production. Fold one into the other, or vice versa, and that’s the avenue

Genre-Bent and Self-Produced, andy polk Releases New Song ‘pins&needles’ with cookii

It’s no surprise that hyperpop has manifested itself as more than just a maximalist, torqued-up version of pop. The genre has found a way to merge with alt, hip-hop and punk sounds, among others, perhaps most notably by artists like 100 gecs working with Fall Out Boy, or via the emo musings of newer names

Memo’s Monthly Favorites: February 2021

Hello everybody! Happy March! Even though February is the shortest month of the year, this past month was packed with a lot of great music. Especially in the singles department. I added more singles than usual in the honorable mentions, but I did leave two tracks. I did this because Daw has already written two
