[Album Review] Kylie + Garibay - "Sleepwalker" EP

Kylie Minogue's last album, Kiss Me Once, didn't exactly set the world alight with its over-produced brand of pop. Though I enjoyed the LP- not as much as her previous releases, mind- something just didn't ring true with its direction or sound. It was as if the album was missing its heart, being a music by numbers creation, rather than a labor of love.

However, Kylie seems to have overcome this with her new EP, Sleepwalker.

Teaming up with music producer Garibay- who has worked with Lady Gaga and Britney Spears- the duo have crafted four tracks that sound so much more "Kylie" than anything found on Kiss Me Once.

[Free Music] JoJo vocally Slays On New Mixtape "#LoveJo"

JoJo is feeling the love today and has decided to spread it around by giving us a very special valentine's day gift: a new mixtape, #LoveJo.

I've had a brief nosy through the four song set- I don't have time right now to give it a proper whirl- but even still, with those little tasters, it is more than apparent that JoJo has stepped up the vocals. I didn't think it was possible for her to bring anything new, vocally, but it sounds to me as if the singer is still growing, and refining, her instrument.

I'll comment again with my thoughts on the mixtape once I've had a proper listen, but I wanted to make sure I shared it with you on the actual day of release- since it ties in with Valentines.

Take a listen to the loved-up set below. You can also download each song FOR FREEEEEEEEEEE!

[Free Music] Kelly Clarkson "Get Up (A Cowboy's Anthem)"

Do I like Kelly Clarkson? Yes. Do I like free music? God, yes! Do I like American Football? Not particularly. Well then, today is (kinda) my lucky day because Ms Clarkson has released a rousing (free) tribute to her hometown American football team, the Dallas Cowboys

Kelly Clarkson is one of five musicians- the others being Kid Rock, Travie McCoy, Ice Cube and Wiz Khalifa- been given the opportunity by Pepsi to write and record a song for their own favourite team. Kelly was apparently so excited with the honour of recording a song for the Dallas Cowboys, she penned the lyrics the same night she was offered the gig! Now that is a fan!

Fan of rap music? Fan of free music? If you answered yes to those questions, then today is your lucky day as New York lyricist, Azealia Banks, releases her free mix-tape, Fantasea, for public consumption!

If you are unaware of Ms Banks, Check out singles 212 and house-infused follow-up Liquorice- both taken from her critically acclaimed EP, 1991- to get a flavour of the outrageous 21-year-old. Her raunchy and shocking lyrics won't be to everyone's taste, so dip your (metaphorical) toe first by sampling the singles before hitting that download link, below.

2003 Summer Classic: Beyonce, Missy Elliot, Mc Lyte and Free "Fighting Temptation"

Hot, uncomfortable and sticky nights are here, meaning only one thing- no the heating isn't on the fritz- the arrival of summer! So what better time to roll out some sympathetic music to enjoy the season by.   

Fighting Temptation is a song that totally epitomises the season for me- a feat no doubt helped tremendously by it featuring not one, not two but four sizzling Divas, in the form of Beyonce, Mc Lyte, Free and Missy Elliot, on the one track!

Beyonce's warming timbre is given the task of handling the melodious vocals of the chorus, while the verses are left to the remaining rappers to run amoc over, with their usual brand of creative and stylistically individual flow.

With the songs laid back beat, old school horns, and hazy loved up feel, Fighting Temptation's summery atmosphere is incredibly potent. So much so, I guarantee* it can make it feel like summer no matter the time of year, or the weather outside. Try it next time it's minus 50 degrees outside and your marrow is beginning to freeze in your very bones! Take a listen after the jump.
