The full-length debut from model-actress-singer Sky Ferreira sounds like a soundtrack for the Breakfast Club remake playing in her head. Ferreira airlifts her electropop hooks straight from the Eighties, her yelping, surly vocals frosted with thick production and her constant synths reflecting every Tears for Fears anthem ever blasted during a coastal joyride. Some of the modern EDM heaviness of Icona Pop and Sleigh Bells kicks in latently, but the 21-year-old's iciness ultimately fails to charm. Although, between its well-placed chimes and the propulsive hook about ephemeral love, "24 Hours" sounds like the Simple Minds song you didn't know you wanted to hear.

    “Bizness”

    Tune-Yards | 2011

    The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
