The first full week after the Thanksgiving holiday was completely stuffed with great pop music. (I swear, I didn’t mean for that to be a pun). We got full albums from some pop column staples — English electronic group Clean Bandit released their second studio album on Friday, and The 1975 finally dropped the fantastic, genre-spanning A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. Grimes is back and hailing the genius of our benevolent AI overlords. Just when we thought she’d turned away from pop for good, country girl Miley Cyrus has returned for a collab with Mark Ronson.
Every Monday, Uproxx will round out the very best pop releases from the week. I know A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships is so good you could get lost in it for a month, but give the rest of these picks a listen, too.
