Premiere: Adam Tyler, “Fade Into The Light”

by Bradley Stern

Back in 2011, we premiered Adam Tyler‘s gorgeous electro-ballad, “I Won’t Let You Go.” Since then, the up-and-coming electro-popper’s been pretty busy: He released his debut album Shattered Ice in August 2011 (not to be confused with Britney‘s “Shattered Glass”), headlined at EQ Music Blog‘s Poptronik Festival in Spain last year alongside MuuMuse favorites like… Read the full article

Last year, British chanteuse Jessie Ware gave us her 110% with Devotion, an utterly phenomenal debut record full of sweet talk, soulful coos and throwback R&B grooves.

Fast-forward to April 16 (today!), and the talented songstress—now signed to Cherrytree… Read the full article

She Keeps Giving Us Love: An Interview with Jenn D

by Bradley Stern

UK darling Jenn D first caught my eye (and ears) with her gutsy debut single “Lose It” back in November, a powerful punch of aggressive beats and taunting lyricism—and some hot Speak & Spell action to boot. Then, earlier this year, the Liverpool-born songstress got our hearts racing again with the premiere of “You Keep… Read the full article

That Girl Is A God Damn Problem: The Return of Natalia Kills

by Bradley Stern

The bad bitch is back. Just under four years ago, Natalia Kills first burst out onto the scene with her eerily chilly debut single “Zombie,” the first track that caught our attention (and immediately sealed the deal for our endless love affair with Miss Kills). And ever since, she’s been slicing and dicing her way… Read the full article

MuuMuse Presents: The Top 20 Albums of 2012

by Bradley Stern

Earlier this week, I posted my favorite singles from 2012. And now, it’s time for the albums. Unlike last year, 2012 was not a very strong year for mainstream pop acts–at all. Most of the releases from pop’s biggest players, including P!nk, Nicki Minaj, One Direction, Christina Aguilera, Ke$ha and Adam Lambert–were largely ‘okay’ at… Read the full article
