    I take it there is slim to none chance of Ella escaping purgatory and getting a proper single release out of this.

    Signed copies of the album were stacked up in HMV at eight quid just like with Mabel a few weeks back.

    Sounds like a baby Susanne on one of her more pop excursions:



    Love this smooth sounding number:



    A cover of Kokomo by Holiday Sidewinder, who it turns out has been playing with Alex Cameron, which kind of makes sense:

    I think I will stick with the Jax Jones song. Glorious isn't particularly thrilling for her return after such a long absence.

    nice shiny electrobop in the Charli XCX/Kim Petras vein

    Well this one's back and it's not terrible for a change. I may have a moment to the spoken bits over the house keyboards.

    I'm not quite convinced by the other new one on the EP but otherwise that is a great little run of songs.

    There's something a bit Normani about this one

    I just had a bit of a Kleerup moment last week, starting with the excellent As If We Never Won EP, so this new release is a very timely pleasant surprise. Hopefully he has some more star turns on the album.

    dreamy dance-pop take on Dance Monkey from Eden XO



    slightly anonymous but fun little number from Hayley Kiyoko



    another moody bop from Marlene and Ji Nilsson



    fun new Terror Jr effort from last week which is a bit more disco

    Obsessed with this new one from Highasakite, which just builds into something glorious:

    YES, I have been really enjoying the Highasakite song. The shift halfway through is quite something. I loved Elastic State of Mind too.

    Eden's Dance Monkey and the Pure Shores one are also great.

    The video for this one takes a turn:



    The new song from Winona Oak is my favourite thing she has done yet, it is quite rousing:

    And here I thought we had avoided Ava Max reviving the tired/heinous psycho girlfriend trope in music. The 80s synth and beat are actually wonderful though.

    I like the new Winona too. If this one doesn't do something for her then I imagine it's never going to happen. Was fairly cold to "Break My Broken Heart" but it sounded like a hit.

    Also sat in astonishment at the shameless Billie Eilish-aping of the new Bishop Briggs track– she must be ten to fifteen years older than the former!

    I love when Marlene & friend sing along with the sample in the Pure Shores track. Not nearly as essential as "Ear Candy" or "Next to Me", but very nice indeed.

    Also hope Eden garners some much needed/deserved attention– now that's how you do a cynical ploy for streams!

    This is very catchy and has a certain comfortable disco charm.

    This sparkly bubblegum nu-metal number from Rina is basically what Poppy wants to be doing, with a healthy dose of Grimes thrown in for good measure



    love it!

    her current album/project/whatever rollout has been torturous but this new one from ALMA is pretty brilliant - sounds like a more uptempo Mother's Daughter, which is no surprise as she's also written much of Miley's upcoming album

    Bad News Baby is great. I haven't followed her closely enough to be bothered about campaign shenanigans but I did really like Lonely Night as well, which was a bit more Tove Lo-ish.

    Two song I like a lot with quite distracting videos so Spotify links it is:





    The Jax Anderson song is a bit Georgia-esque.

    this spectacular 80s homage from Sam Sparro is giving me so much life.



    EVERYTHING
    EV-ERY-THING
    AND MOOORE

    and a lovely pensive moment from the Japanese House

    Ronika is still going and has delivered a wonderful synthpop number, complete with French spoken parts. Maybe it could stand a tighter edit but it is still pretty glorious:



    An obvious but very addictive chorus-lifting slice of disco pop:



    Fragile dreaminess from Alice Boman. Cutting a forlorn shoulder bouncing rug:

    Really like that Ally Brooke song but you can feel the 'Don't Start Now' influence a mile off.

    I’ve been playing that Ally Brooke song LOADS. Who knew she’d come up with something like that and becone the third most popular member of Fifth Harmony!

    The back end of December isn't exactly fruitful for new releases but I've had this Annie-esque Scandi electro Italo tune on repeat:

    Nina Nesbitt is involved in quite a few very good things these days



    this from 2018 is excellent and Charlotte Lawrence also has some interesting songs





    It surprises me a bit that I'm quite into so many of these Spotify pop girls these days when I used to be such a consumer of mostly big pop girls for so many years. that's growth!

    Thanks also for the Moyka track above too! The whole EP sounds like an extension of Susanne's Love Songs album :disco: Their voices are very similar.
