THE DROP – Dog Blood & Madeon
The Drop is us cutting through the massive jungle of new music that’s been released over the last seven days. We sharpen our proverbial machetes and cut through the shit to get you to the content that you need to be listening to.
This is The Drop.
Dog Blood (Skrillex & Boys Noize) – Turn Off The Lights
These dogs are back with even more bite. Along with returning to fetival stages this year, this is Dog Blood’s first full release in some time. Turn Off The Lights is a four-track compilation that brings together monstrous sounds and acid house vibes. From the first song to the last, Dog Blood takes us through an industrial journey of sounds that give an eclectic taste of beats, and are putting listeners into a definite rave mood.
Katy Perry – “Never Really Over”
Katy Perry is starting the summer off strong with an absolute bop. “Never Really Over” is catchy, fun, and everything that I love about Katy Perry’s presence in pop music. With production from Zedd, “Never Really Over” is the perfect single that will be making its way onto all my summer playlists.
Madeon – “All My Friends”
Madeon surprised us all with a new single, and it is everything I could’ve ever wanted. Madeon is a one-man show on “All My Friends” from production to vocals—this track is all his. Light and funky with shimmery effects, this single brings a little psychedelic groove to a summer pop jam.
The Chainsmokers & Bebe Rexha – “Call You Mine”
Bebe Rexha is taking over the vocals on The Chainsmokers new song, “Call You Mine,” and while the lyrics take on a heartfelt persona, the beat is as synthy and as grand as Chainsmokers drops go—therefore, it is an instant favorite of mine. The track comes off of The Chainsmokers upcoming album, World War Joy, which currently doesn’t have a release date, but it’s definitely on its way.
Miley Cyrus – She Is Coming
Love it or hate it, Miley Cyrus is fearless when it comes to the music she releases, and She Is Coming is the exact testament to that. This is the first installment of her three-part album that is set to be released between now and fall. She doesn’t stick to one lane, and is constantly experimenting with whatever kind of music she wants. This six-track EP collides a lot of worlds into one, and it showcases my favorite softer sides of Miley that really show off her twang flare; especially on songs like “The Most.” She also shows her untamed and completely out there persona on songs like “Cattitude” feat. RuPaul. The enigma that is Miley Cyrus has kept me constantly invested in her and she keeps me coming back for more with every new release.
