Hey there you! You like a pretty cool kinda dude/lady dude (dudette? I'm going with Dudette). I bet you know a whole lot about music don't you? Like, if I was to ask you to list the biggest hits of the last, oh, I don't know... 114 years, I bet you'd know 'em all wouldn't you?

OR WOULD YOU? DUN DUN DUHHHH....

Review: Hooray For Earth - RACY

Hooray For Earth - RACY
First of all, let's just say it. VICE Magazine has a lot to answer for. Ten years ago you'd be hard pushed to find two doom metal fans outside of Bradford city centre, let alone in Shoreditch, but thanks to that mag's tireless ranting over Sunno))) no album is complete without a churning, dropped-D bass grinding to life.

This is no exception...

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Hypnotic Eye
Typical. PopDin Chief Christopher Ratcliff pops off on Honeymoon, and the unthinkable happens. We write a sincere review. Mind you, it's pretty hard to make jokes about Hypnotic Eye, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to enjoy here...

The New Wedding Playlist Part 52: David Bowie - Moonage Daydream

The New Wedding Playlist Part 52: David Bowie - Moonage Daydream
The final part of a 52 week series where I (the groom-to-be) rails against the clichéd music you usually hear played at weddings and proposes a new playlist. One full of songs that are not only romantic and great to dance to but also idiosyncratic, personal, unexpected and when played loudly in front of a room full of people, sound absolutely incredible. This is THE NEW WEDDING PLAYLIST!

I'm buggering off on honeymoon. This guy will be in charge while I'm gone so you'd better behave

As you may or may not be aware, I'm getting married this weekend. Afterwards I'll be flying to Tokyo for a couple of weeks and fully embracing the Japanese pop scene....

Review: La Roux - Trouble in Paradise

La Roux - Trouble in Paradise
Silly, occasionally naff and largely inconsequential, La Roux's second album Trouble In Paradise, currently trumpeted as 'album of summer', is a completely ephemeral experience. Then again so is summer.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song we deserve

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme song we deserve
There's a lot of bad press surrounding Michael Bay's reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This snottiness has extended to the movie's EDM meets rap theme song 'Shell Shocked', a collaboration between Kill the Noise, Madsonik, Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, Ty Dolla $ign and loads of other artists who I can't be bothered to look up how to spell properly.

In case you're listening to La Roux's new album...

An explanation of what a 'sexotheque' is...

"If a discotheque is where you go to disco, a sexotheque is where you go to... sex?"

Thanks for clearing that up Rap Genius.

The Sunn O))) Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore
YES! Finally an excuse to use that sweet pun I've been saving up for the last month.

The collaboration between orchestral pop genius turned avant-garde experimentalist Scott Walker and spectacular drone heroes Sunn O))) finally has some concrete details...

You can carry on reading this if you like but just to warn you, after writing the above headline I've already mentally checked out of the article.
