She’s been generating online buzz for her genre-blurring dark pop for years, and now the debut album from Billie Eilish is finally here. We talk When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? highlights “Bad Guy” and “Ilomilo” on this week’s Must-Hear Music, and the possible influence of Taylor Swift’s reputation on her album.
Additionally, we chat about the 8-bit video game-flavored “Hello” from Ugly God ft. Lil Pump, and the Chainsmokers’ latest example of their gradual pivot to pop, “Kills You Slowly,” which sees the duo’s Drew Taggart handling vocals. Plus – Sky Ferreira’s cinematic turn away from pop, the atmospheric “Downhill Lullaby.”
