    Okay so I don't know much about this girl except she just released an album which has a song with Grimes on it and one of the songs she did with Fernando Garibay sounds like Alejandro Part 2.

    Oh Aristocrat is something.

    I quite liked Hard Feelings and Time Is Up of the pre release songs but an album felt like it might be a bit much. Maybe I'll give it a go.

    She's been knocking around for a while now...just doing weird YouTube videos, an instrumental album designed to be slept to (!) and making various promises of actual music. I find it all a bit meta.

    There was some weird stuff a while ago about her boyfriend/manager, his ex (also a singer) accused him of being abusive and also essentially stealing her image to use for Poppy :o I'm going to try and find the article I read about it.

    EDIT: Here it is - looks like it was thrown out of court since I last read about it, so never mind I guess?

    A big improvement on her first album. I love the BABYMETAL vibe of the final two tracks, and a lot of the more straight-forwardly poppy tracks are great, even if they occasionally sound like they've been unearthed early from a time capsule buried in the early 'tens. 'Time is Up' is the best track on there I think, although I do love that Grimes track too. It's a Hollywood moment!

    I saw her live a few weeks ago. The support act was a 45 minute long DJ set from a blow-up doll called Charlotte, and a teenaged human beside me was in tears and screaming 'DAD' when Poppy's weird manager/boyfriend came out to set up said support act, so that was terrifying.

    oh I do kinda regret missing seeing her live a couple of months ago here but at the same time I AM GRATEFUL, I think it would have been a surreal experience.

    Aristocrat is fucking fabulous but if anything it bypasses Alejandro and channels the source ie. Ace of Base :disco:

    Hard Feelings is great too. And Play Destroy is very Garbage.

    No, it channels the stems Garibay stole from RedOne.

    I wish the entire album was in the vein of the last three tracks. I hope her next album (if there is one) explores this "babymetal" sound more.

    Haven't delved into the rest of the album yet, but I've become a bit obsessed with Play Destroy - I never expected to be in support of a nu-metal revival, but here we are I suppose.

    While it's bumped I feel we should also have this, which is clearly absolutely everything:

    Oh this is her with the really fucked up YouTube videos, isn’t it? That boyfriend looks like all manner of wrongness as well. Satan’s obviously got his claws in both of them
