On her 2018 debut EP, Cruel Practice, NUXXE co-founder Shygirl delivered brash, sexually charged lyrics in her distinctive no-nonsense monotone over a jarring hybrid of grime, post-industrial hip-hop, and U.K. garage produced by Sega Bodega and Dinamarca. After releasing additional singles like the astounding "BB" and making key appearances on albums by Georgia, Zebra Katz, and Arca, she moved to French label Because Music with her second EP, ALIAS, which sports production by Sega Bodega, SOPHIE, Kai Whiston, Happa, and Karma Kid. While less abrasive than Cruel Practice, the equally impressive follow-up maintains the dark, provocative edge of her previous work. She taunts "Why ride with the devil when I could give you hell?" on the trap-ish "TWELVE," and is extremely upfront with her sexual commands on tracks like "SLIME" and "LENG." The standouts are the most club-friendly tracks Shygirl has released to date. "FREAK" starts out slow and disconcertingly woozy, then picks up with a hard-charging industrial techno beat, matching the speedy wit of her rhymes. "TASTY" is a surprisingly ecstatic house track, with Shygirl raising her voice more than usual and demanding to be treated right over ravey pianos and choppy breakbeats. The more hypnotic "SIREN" alludes to Y2K-era pop-trance, meshing perfectly with the song's lyrics about money, power, and fast cars.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.

A Guide to Five Lesser-Known Metal Subgenres

The great oak tree of heavy metal contains more than meets the eye. Its mighty branches, visible to the average rock fan, consist of thrash, hair, nu, black, 'core, and death metal—all arguably the genre's more iconic iterations. But beneath its tremendous trunk are ever-growing roots that stretch endlessly into a vast underground of niche stylistic offshoots. There are literally dozens of subgenres—and many subgenres within those subgenres—throughout the heavy metal lexicon, and it would take a lifetime to become fully versed in all of them. Here we zoom in on five unique and compelling lesser-known metal subgenres that aren't obvious entry points for the average headbanger, but every fan of aggressive music should be familiar with these sounds.
