With her first album, 2011's Perfectionist, singer Natalia Kills went from semi-obscurity as a British soap opera actress to fully-fledged pop stardom. That album positioned Kills as a would-be maverick in the vein of Lady Gaga and Ke$ha, with a bent toward Rihanna-esque good girl-gone-ad anthems. On her sophomore effort, 2013's Trouble, Kills is still the party girl with daddy issues and a sex-damaged swagger. Seemingly born out of a one night stand between HBO's Girls and and M.I.A.'s Tumblr account, Natalia Kills' music spews forth like a rainbow cat puke meme that cribs from any number of post-modern contemporary sources, from Courtney Love's "girl with the most cake" tiara, to Grimes' ironic girl-gang posturing, to Gwen Stefani's appropriation of Japanese Harajuku Girl subculture. Kills is the blase gangsta princess delivering her inflammatory lines with a Lolita-esque insouciance that registers somewhere between bored Mall goth and psycho-sexual cheerleader. Which basically means that, while Kills isn’t that far off from the P!nks and Lady Gagas of the world, she has enough of her own personality to keep your attention. One minute, as on "Stop Me," she's Trent Reznor's snotty little sister cooing, "We could do some damage, fuck me in the Paris lights," and putting on her high heels so that "she's closer to God." The next minute, as on "Boys Don't Cry," she's pleading, "I'll be yours tonight, but don't hold me too tight." It's a dance-pop pantomime that artists have been trying to pull off ever since Madonna sang about a sexual experience so revelatory it gave her back her virginity. However it should be mentioned that in the era of Ke$ha, Nikki Minaj, and Lady Gaga, when iconoclast status is the norm among female pop stars, the concept behind performers like Kills can start to feel a little facile, sometimes even bordering on repetitive. Suffice to say, it's hard to define what exactly qualifies as impressive in this arena of pop music; it's mostly a question of what hooks you and what doesn't. And as Kills raps on "Controversy," "Drink the Kool-Aid. Don't drink the Kool-Aid."

My Bloody Valentine, the Inner Experience

Thirty years after its release, My Bloody Valentine's "Loveless" remains the craziest album of the 90s. This electric monument in the form of a wall of sound was a product of Kevin Shields' deranged mind. It turned the history of rock upside down and remains a major source of inspiration for many musicians from all walks of life.

Britpop in 10 Albums

“If punk was about getting rid of hippies, then I'm getting rid of grunge.” It was with this sentence from Damon Albarn in 1993 that England invaded the stage previously dominated by Nirvana and Seattle grunge. Britpop is deeply linked to politics and local identity and emerged just as Tony Blair and New Labour were entering the scene. English romanticism was once again becoming attractive compared to the American identity, which was considered too hollow in the UK. Make way for “Cool Britannia”.

Metallica, the Path to Glory

Having sold 125 million albums across the globe, including some 30 million copies of their “Black Album”, Metallica is among the unlikeliest of pop sensations to come out of the last half-century. So how did a heavy metal band with such a convoluted song structure end up on par with music from the likes of Madonna and Michael Jackson? By following their instincts and sheer determination. Let’s return to the roots of the most famous heavy metal band in history.
