Gorillaz – ‘The Now Now’ Album Review

When we last heard from Gorillaz, their fifth album “Humanz” was newly released. It was a comeback that left me so disappointed that the thought of another Gorillaz album filled me with dread. It was torture to make me myself listen to the album again. It was so overloaded and unfocused, which contributed to a […]

Death Grips – ‘Year of the Snitch’ Album Review

For the record, I never got into Death Grips until recently. I thought “Bottomless Pit” was nothing special on first listen. It was really weird for me to digest their music at the time. Then I began to listen to it again as well as listening to “The Money Store.” All of a sudden, everything […]

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘How to: Friend, Love, Freefall’ – Rainbow Kitten Surprise

It’s become a common occurrence for me to jump onto an emerging artist well into their career in the music scene. More than often it’s independent groups like alt-J and Glass Animals, these “new” artists tend to spark my interest with a single song, a single from their past that suddenly draws me into their […]

Megadeth – So Far, So Good… So What! 30 Years Later

  When you think of Megadeth what great albums come into mind? “Peace Sells”? “Rust in Peace”? “Killing Is My Business”? Well, what about this album?  No? Why? For some reason, “So Far, So Good… So What!” has received the unfortunate treatment of being sandwiched between the two albums that are considered Megadeth’s best, “Peace […]

THROWBACK MUSIC REVIEW: ‘By Any Means 2’ – ‘Kevin Gates’

Although a battery charge from a Florida concert in 2015 and recent gun charges, which subsequently led to a 30 month prison sentence, one of which he is still serving, Kevin Gates still delivers his aggressive, came-from-the-bottom style raps and pain-fueled soulful vocals that put him in the spotlight in his most recent release, “By […]

ALBUM REVIEW: Oh Wonder’s ‘Ultralife’ sends you in and out of love in the far reaches of space

While pop queen Lorde’s fluorescent follow-up with ‘Melodrama’ might have easily been one of my most anticipated pop albums of the summer, another artist I was eager to hear again was the London-based duo of Oh Wonder. Surfacing to instant global acclaim in 2014 with their self-titled debut, the duo of Josephine Vander Gucht and […]

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Burn Bridges, Burn Pies’ – OhBree

You know the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, right? You might know him as the guy who painted those bizarre melting clocks or the man with the equally weird mustache.  What if I told you that there was a band who could provide the perfect soundtrack to his paintings? There is, and their name is OhBree. […]

A boy, a guitar and a raspy voice: all three combined to capture England’s heart in 2012 and is slowly grabbing hold of America’s. Lewis Watson, the owner of these three things, captivated many with his painfully talented YouTube videos he began to upload to his channel in 2010. His voice stood out, being described […]

Breakdown of Drake’s “More Life”

Random Person: So, I hear there is new Drake music out. Me: Ah yes, you mean the “More Life” playlist. Playlist? It’s basically just a new album, but he’s calling it a playlist. The reason for this might be because it’s just available on streaming platforms, or it doesn’t really have any structure like you […]
