Have you tried the brisket yet? We’re back, with part 2 of our review of the 2013, with thoughts on some of the year’s best music from Mr Moth (on pop singles), Matt Poacher (on the underground scene), Jim Eaton-Terry (on all the stuff in between), and Spank the Monkey (taking a break from watching movies in languages he doesn’t understand, on the 32nd year of his traditional year-end compilations).
Welcome back to Mostly Pop! Last time out it was all a bit tedious because it was old men trying to be pop stars even though their career was about ten, fifteen, thirty years ago and they’re mostly rock stars gone soft. Enough of that. We’re 4/5 female this time and it’s all about POP POP POP, in your face. No ballads, all bangers. Get comfy, turn your speakers up and click through as I attempt once again to not get too confused and angry in the face of music intended for people twenty years my junior.
