Zayn Malik’s solo demo moves former boy bander in a different direction: review

The demo of Zayn Malik’s first solo song - released by its producer, Naughty Boy, on Tuesday - moves him in a very different direction.

In its raw, initial form, “I Don’t Mind” is a moody, acoustic piece that holds far more gravity, intensity, and intimacy than anything this boy band member has ever recorded.

Malik’s vocal has a huskier texture than before, which he uses to inhabit the song with complete confidence.

Countering the dewey and sweet sound he most often used with 1D, Malik sounds more like a dusty troubadour here. He even bares a resemblance to esteemed neo-folk singer Damien Rice.

In his rasp, he recalls the Scottish neo-soul star Paulo Nutini.

It’s a far more promising, if inadvertent, start to Malik’s inevitable solo career than the light-weight ditty released by Harry Styles (“Don’t Let Me Go”) back in 2013.

In fact, Malik has always been One Direction’s strongest singer. His solo parts have long shown more maturity than his four group-mates.

Still, “I Don’t Mind” augers well for the 22 year old to be taken seriously by grown-up listeners, not just the teen dream set. One hopes the official version doesn’t cover up the demo’s raw allure.

Last Man: France's amazing martial arts fantasy comic comes to the Anglosphere

Lastman, the revolutionary, bestselling French comic created by Bastien Vivès, Michaël Sanlaville and Balak, arrives in the Anglosphere today, thanks to Firstsecond’s English language edition of volume 1: The Stranger

Despite being small for his age and undernourished (his mother chooses not to eat so that he can have her food, but it’s just not enough), Adrian dreams of winning the annual martial arts tournament in his small town. Master Jansen, his teacher, is hard on him, and worse, he’s been paired with Vlad for the tournament, and Vlad always get a sick stomach and has to bow out on tournament day. This tournament is no exception, and Master Jansen tells him he’ll have to wait and compete next year, but —

Richard Aldana is a mysterious stranger. Where did he come from? He seems to have materialized in town, and knows nothing about the tournament’s rules — not even that it’s a foul to interrupt your opponent in the midst of a magical summoning — but he’s sure that he wants to fight, if only he could find a partner. When he overhears Adrian’s mother commiserating with him, he sees his opportunity and steps in and offers to partner with the small boy.

Series review

So I just finished a series ( well the fourth book comes out in May) do you guys want me to do a review on books that I finished message me to let me know but I highly suggest to read the selection series’s because I read all of the books in three days and it was very well written and it was amazing and for once it had an happy (ish) ending so I would give it 5/5 it was amazing

The pain I feel when looking at him is more than I can bear but I force myself to keep watching, to soak in as much of him as I can, trying to recapture, in my mind, at least, all that I’ve lost.

Maya (from Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma)

Reading this book took me on a very emotional ride. It’s been a while since I’ve read a book which exceeded my expectations and at the same time surprised me by how the author has made a captivating yet heart-wrenching plot out of an initially revolting concept (at least for me).

what I’ve been reading

I was in a bit of a reading slump earlier this month, but this week I found myself flipping pages like nobody’s business. Here’s what I’ve read in the past two days:

If anyone is a fan of contemporary fiction (especially new adult romance) I DEFINITELY recommend you check out I’ll Meet You There. I was crying for hours and oh my gosh I pulled an all-nighter to finish even though I had a nine hour school day today. IT WAS SO WORTH IT AND I LOVED EVERY SECOND SO GO CHECK IT OUT.

Reviewing A Momentary Glory, Harvey Shapiro’s last poems, brought me to Congregation-Contemporary Writers Read the Jewish Bible, which was edited by David Rosenberg and published in 1987. Shapiro, Norman Finkelstein reminds the reader in his introduction to the poems, contributed an essay to the collection, a thick volume near my desk with many notes tucked into it. “The Jews are a remembering people,” Shapiro says in a passage on the prophet Joel I underlined before I stopped that abusive practice. “It is what their religion is about.”
