  • Billy Thermal: Billy Thermal

    A long-shelved power pop gem gets its chance to shine.

    Imagine a world without Madonna singing “Like a Virgin” or Cyndi Lauper singing “True Colors”. How about an American pop landscape where Whitney Houston’s “So Emotional” was never heard? Next, try imagining a world without Billy Thermal. Well, okay, that last one is easy, but, without that last, it’s probable that none of the former would exist, nor would other such well known songs as the Bangles’ “Eternal Flame”, Heart’s “Alone”, and the Divinyls’ “I…

    Shura does that mid-period Madonna/”Time After Time” version of melancholic retro synthpop better than just about anybody. Here’s another example of her excellence: “Indecision,” her first single since signing with Polydor, is the most uptempo track we’ve heard from her after ace ballads “Touch” and “Just Once.” It’s got the neon sparkle of an old [...]

  • Beefs 2014: Grimes Accuses Ariel Pink of "Delusional Misogyny" Over Madonna Comments

    Ariel Pink claimed that he has contributed songwriting to Madonna's forthcoming album, but he also had some less-than-glowing things to say about the pop icon. In response to these comments, Grimes took Pink to task on Twitter. Pink told Faster Louder of his apparent contributions to Madonna's new album, "They need something edgy. They need songwriting. She can't just have her Avicii, her producers or whatever, come up with a new techno jam for her to gyrate to and pretend that she's 20 years old. They actually need songs. I'm partly responsible for that return-to-values thing." ...Read More

But there's also been one bizarre choice, as the producers have allegedly asked Ariel Pink to contribute some songs. Ever a loudmouth, the psychedelic pop performer did not keep quiet about his potential future Madonna work. Instead, he offered his thoughts on the album with Faster Louder [via Pitchfork].
