[MUSIC] Five music links: Queer pop, Charli XCX, Comiskey Park disco, Eurythmics, decline of albums

  • Noisey recently took a fun look at the representation of queerness in American pop music, by Hailey Kiyoko among others.
  • Charli XCX sounds like someone I should listen for. Noisey reports.
  • JSTOR Daily reports on the factors, including homophobia, that led to the 1979 Comiskey Park riots that heralded the fall of disco in the United States.
  • Adam Mason at Popmatters recently made the case, after their LP reissues, of the importance of the Eurythmics. I agree with this line of argument entirely.
  • Alan Cross made the argument that, with new digital technologies, the album as a unit of music makes little sense. Instead, singles and playlists will take its place. Global News hosts the argument.
