LP - Into the Wild

I know it's hard sometimes, but remember how pop music is supposed to be good? Like, the whole point is that it's inoffensive and catchy. These days, the lyrical vapidity is what offends me most about pop music.

(Though I wonder if there were folks out there who said the same thing about '90s pop. But let's be real here, folks, "Dirty Pop" is an amazing song.)

LP (Laura Pergolizzi) has, in my opinion, single-handedly reclaimed pop music.

In the past few years she's paid the bills by writing songs for Rihanna and others. Now, she's resuscitating her solo career.

Check out her cover of Beyonce's "Halo."

This is what pop music should be: uplifting and, most importantly, fun. It's been a while since I've seen somebody look so happy to sing. And she totally kills the song.

Her own music is no less impressive. It's enough to make me buy her EP (which was recorded during this session) and her back catalogue.
