Déjà Verse: “Tom’s Diner,” Giorgio Moroder + Britney Spears

Good music speaks volumes… rather than impose analysis, step back and expose linguistic artistry… listen, look, and linger in fantastic rhythmic reality: lyrically speaking “Tom’s Diner” – Deja Vu (2015)   da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do da-da-doo-do I am sitting In the morning At the diner On the corner…

re:code.fm :: Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor

In 2005, Madonna dropped the world like a discoball. She created one of the decade’s best albums as she had created her entire career: by producing a self-context so great that it becomes the world’s Pop conscience. If “the main problem with 2008’s Hard Candy was that Madonna seemingly didn’t care,” and “with American Life…

Crate Dig: The De Jure, The De Facto, The Glory of Britney Spears’ Tribal Gospel

So… in the years and miscellany of months since Britney Jean… many dramatic learning scenarios have unfolded… for the shown world, and both a one Miss Britney Jean Spears, and mutually exclusively, myself #swiperitsnotaboutyou #iknow #itsalwaysbeenaboutdora #yesiknow #everypopstarisdora #igetit #keepitmoving #peoplearetryingtoreadhere #anyway Much like Britney Jean, said Spears nor myself have anything to prove in…

A.V Hub: Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory”

“The Edge of Glory:” It’s an edge, and it’s glorious – and that’s all we need to say about that. I love this video. When I saw this video, some less fatigued part of me wanted to run across the Brooklyn Bridge and upload footage of said jog to YouTube #literally – some more juvenile,…

re:code.fm :: La Roux’s La Roux

The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill painted a music scene reflective of urban culture on the brink of a new millennium; eleven years later we – as a culture and creative class – had evolved and devolved from that reality. We had since found our souls in the synthetic, and were given our new sonic aesthetic…

TrapperKeeper: Spice Girls’ “Never Give Up On the Good Times”

What’s old is new. Nothing says fresh and familiar like a Trapper Keeper – whether keeping the trap under control, or keeping daily assignments and doodles within the fold – one thing kidults could always count on to keep the world right was the Trapper Keeper.

“Intelligence is the Steal…” Biorythmic: Britney Jean

I’ve spent the past two years since Femme Fatale mastering the art and science of global media and communication with Britney as my canon. I don’t really need to prove anything, and apparently neither does she; because Britney Jean founds and finds itself in that, it breathes … I appreciate Britney Jean. Holding the thread…

re:code.fm :: M.I.A.’s Arular

Where we left off with the sonic schizophrenia of Kenna’s face, we now delve into the social schizophonia scape of M.I.A.’s 2005 debut take: alee, Arular. M.I.A. mirrors the past – leading by sample – and marks the future. From sound to sentiment to style, she lays the groundwork for the new underground of which…

re:code.fm :: Lady Gaga’s The Fame

Pop: grab your old girl with her new tricks; if this was Gaga’s first and last album, it would be just as complete as it is in context as a dynasty starter. The Fame is nothing more and nothing less than a perfect Pop debut through and through. Visceral, catchy, panoramic, reflective, progressive, chock full…
