Debut LANY Album

American band LANY released their debut  self titled album on 30th June. It contains 16 songs, including singles Good Girls, It Was Love, The Breakup and 13. I don't tend to be that into indie/alternative music (I'm a fan of BANKS but her music is more alternative R'n'B) but I discovered LANY last summer and liked their song yea, babe, no way. It's good to try different styles of music. (And their music is still kind of poppy anyway! lol It's described as "dream pop"). Since then I've listened to other singles and liked them.

I think LANY is quite a good album. It's probably not one that I would buy as a whole album but I'll definitely get some individual songs. I've already bought The Breakup on iTunes and will probably get a couple of the albums. The album has a nice chilled vibe, which is good for this time of year. It also seems to have a California type vibe, which is fitting since half of the band's name stands for LA! (The other half is New York). My favourite songs are The Breakup, Pancakes, (gonna buy that today in fact), Dumb Stuff and Hurts and I also like the other singles mentioned above.

Here are the singles previously posted on the blog:

Also there's now a video for Good Girls which was uploaded to YouTube the other week:







If any official audios or videos appear for my other faves then I'll update the post. :) (There are a couple of unofficial videos for Pancakes but there's no sound, so I suspect the audio has been disabled because of copyright!).


Update 12/7/17: As of today there are more official audios uploaded.

Here is Pancakes (which I've now bought):


Dumb Stuff:


And Hurts:

Weekly Music Video

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…
