That Poppy, Bubblebath EP (Island)

Anchored by the gurgling No Doubt knockoff “Lowlife,” That Poppy’s memorable new mini-LP is no flash in the pan. Sure, it’d be easy to write the Nashville-born teen off as a serial idea-lifter — “Money” steals a sense of melody from Moby’s housier works, and “Altar” is akin to Kelly Clarkson working with peak-of-his-powers Max Martin — but Poppy’s gussied-up delivery makes the project worth a listen. Stick around for the closer “American Kids,” which is everything Halsey’s “New Americana” so desperately wants to be.
