Marmozets – The Weird And Wonderful Marmozets (CD)

First and foremost, it’s time to disregard the cheapening and blatantly false comparisons to Paramore you may have heard about this band. Marmozets are in a league of their own and in a completely different realm than any other alternative band on the market now. Featuring a brash, unpredictable, and highly dynamic sound, the West Yorkshire-based […]

In Flames – Siren Charms

In Flames became one of my favorite bands back in 2009. I was at the library with my  classmates from school, and in that library there were CDs that you could borrow for free, just like the books. I got two albums by this band called In Flames that I had only heard a classmate […]

Album Review: Watsky- All You Can Do

Oh, my, Watsky. Slam-Poet-turned-rapper, George Watsky, has really outdone himself on his newest album, ‘All You Can Do’, released on August 12th, 2014. This album features so many genres that even the strictest rock, rap, or any other specific genre follower can’t help but binge play this album until they are literally singing it in […]

Album Review: Jack White – Lazaretto

It doesn’t matter what you hear, or where you hear it, the distinct guitar riffs and unique vocals of Jack White can be easily distinguished amongst a sea of imitators and bands that nowadays sound no different from the next Johnny-Come-Lately’s. From The White Stripes to his many side projects, which include The Raconteurs and […]

Album Review: Coldplay – Ghost Stories

I’ve always been told that high expectations lead to high disappointments. Maybe I was expecting more from Coldplay’s latest album, Ghost Stories, released in May, 2014. I was expecting something different from what I’m used to and at first I was disappointed.  I’m a huge Coldplay fan & own every album. I remember when Parachutes […]

The Hunting Party (Linkin Park): Album Review

When I first listened to a six-song sampler from The Hunting Party back in April, I described the new music as “some of [Linkin Park’s] most electrifying and aggressive sounding tracks to date” and predicted that the album would “polarize the fan base” upon its release on June 17th. At the time I was making […]

Closure In Moscow – Pink Lemonade

Sometimes when searching for music late at night you’ll stumble across a band that you may have never heard of before, but you instantly realize you will enjoy. For me, that’s often when I’m up late at night browsing Spotify and everything else is completely silent. That was the case when I found Australian prog-rockers […]

Album Review: Southsiders – Atmosphere

I remember listening to Atmosphere’s “Your Glass House” for the first time. I was browsing through some music videos on YouTube as a real millennial kid when I came across it. It was angsty, it was dark and it was very different from other rap I had heard thus far. It drew me in. It […]

Review: Lykke Li – I Never Learn

Swedish indie pop sensation Lykke Li rarely disappoints. The way her unique voice mixes with melodious synth arrangements is inimitable. Sadly, the new album I Never Learn can’t compare to the ingenuity of her past releases Youth Novels or Wounded Rhymes. I Never Learn only has 9 tracks. Which is pretty short for a full […]
