Teen angst never really goes out of style… Whether you’re a thirtysomething music critic and humanities professor; or a twentysomething singer, songwriter, model, YouTube celebrity, performance artist, and author; the teen angst aesthetic would still seem to remain the most fun and popularly appealing way to stick it to the status quo… which is what makes Poppy’s I Disagree arguably the most interesting album to hit shelves in the first month of 2020.  It’s the songstress’ [who does, indeed, have all of the credentials listed above] third full-length, and first on Sumerian Records.  Although her early sounds were largely in the realm of synth-heavy electropop, her latest release continues her exploration of the heavy, particularly nu metal and industrial.  It sounds along the lines of a disenfranchised TRL chanteuse fronting a band on the mainstage of Ozzfest 2001… and it’s pretty great… Poppy is currently on the road and will be headlining our very own Theatre of Living Arts this Friday, February 7th.  Based on previous area appearances, the night is sure to be a delectable anti-spectacle, as glitteringly glossy as it is radically rousing… I’d highly recommend coming out… In the meantime, check out her recent video for “Anything Like Me.”
