Like at Rough Trade, she brought a ton of people on stage for a dance party, but this was of course a much longer set than that four-song show. We didn’t get the exact setlist for this one, but like at the other shows on this tour, she mixed it up pretty well between all three of her albums, with plenty of highlights off the new one like “Banshee,” “Can’t Get Enough of Myself,” and more…

“I’m pretty major, and I’ll say it out loud.” For her first album in four years, Santigold dives right in with a track that sounds like uninhibited bragging. While it’s true that 99¢ reestablishes her as a savvy talent, “Can’t Get Enough of Myself” also takes aim at the assumption that everyone’s lives are as fabulous as their facades are made to seem. Therein lies the genius of 99¢ as an album and Santigold as an artist: her brand of pop is incredibly fun to listen to, but packs a lyrical punch just beneath ...

Oh, Madonna, Bless Your Rebel Heart!

Source: Rock On Philly

Madonna, the iconic envelope-pusher who just won’t quit, is back with her thirteenth studio release and frankly, I just don’t know where to begin.

Rebel Heart‘s most relatable moments occur when Madonna ditches her over-the-top persona in favor of wearing her heart on her sleeve.
