This week on Cut From Steel we have an interview with the wonderful Single Mothers, things got loud with a best of the New Damage Winter Sampler, and things got even more loud with a new video from METZ.

The coolest thing I found online is this top 10 albums project. 10 graphic designers are re-designing the album covers for their top 10 albums of 2015 – the result is gorgeous.  I learned all about Lizzo from this insightful Jezebel interview with the Detroit based rapper. Her entire (amazing) album is currently streaming over on DIY. Check it out.

The eternally hilarious Noel Gallagher had some words to say about Adele this week. I think that there is definitely some truth in what he said. Adele is incredibly talented but her songs are too weepy, too sad, and too boring for my tastes.

“If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f–king tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f–king grannies…. Music has nosedived into f–king blandness. A sea of cheese…”

Speaking of Divas, here is an interesting breakdown of big singers who apparently aren’t singing properly with commentary from a ‘pro’. Interesting to see how nobody measures up to Mariah.

I have something of a school girl crush on John Newman and this song is the perfect addition to any holiday party you may be throwing / attending / controlling the youtube at.
