It scares me to think that there are people out there who are sitting at a desk every single day doing a job they don’t love. That thought keeps me going when people give me the infamous “aww, that’s cute” look when I tell them my dream job is to work for Spotify. A couple weeks ago, as I wa...

In Our Feelings: The Illusion of “No Regrets”

In Our Feelings: The Illusion of “No Regrets”

Morgan Bluma

November 9, 2018

The feeling of regret is the worst. This giant pit in your stomach that won’t go away. The constant nagging of our brain over what could happen, the what ifs. It is the worst. It can haunt you for days, weeks, and, for some, years. Many songs send the message that we should live in the moment and h...

Genuinely Meaningless?

Genuinely Meaningless?

November 9, 2018

Whenever my friends and I get into a discussion about what music we are into right now and why, I find myself always going back to the same point. “This artist I’ve been listening to recently seems so genuine” or “there is something so authentic about this song” are phrases that I find myself ...

REVIEW: Antarctigo Vespucci – Love in the Time of E-mail

Drew Dawson

November 8, 2018

Sometimes you have to embrace your angst and listen to some music that brings it out in you. For me, Antarctigo Vespucci is the perfect trip for a shitty day. Sometimes pop punk ends up being heavier punk than pop or vice versa, but their new album Love in the Time of E-mail is surprisingly balanced...

Whatever Happened to “The Fresh Pots”?

Whatever Happened to “The Fresh Pots”?

Milo Paul

November 8, 2018

Back before I had any form of musical self-awareness, Dave Grohl made some joke. Researching “Fresh Pots” or whatever it was that he said has proven itself to be a trying experience—looking back at an era where meme culture had just been starting is my personal equivalent to reviving someone long-dea...

REVIEW: All Them Witches – ATW

August Greenberg

November 7, 2018

All Them Witches spend their newest album, ATW, diving deep into their country roots. The Nashville-based group has been releasing music since 2012, developing a unique hard rock take on traditional blues rock. But on ATW the group dives headfirst into a distinctly rural sound. The lyrical themes and m...

Considering that we’re the most politically active campus in the nation and all, I would be remiss if I didn’t join the hoards of targeted Instagram stories and street corner crusaders that you dodge on your way to the metro, imploring you to vote in Tuesday’s midterm elections. British indie-rock b...

REVIEW: Pill – Soft Hell

REVIEW: Pill – Soft Hell

Shannon Durazo

November 6, 2018

Soft Hell, Pill’s second full-length album, is a chaotic (yet oddly pleasing) combination of punk, jazz, noise rock, and the occasional Spanish lyric. If the unique musical dynamics of this highly creative group don’t pull you in, the hand-drawn album artwork of a dog playing the piano against ...

Bennie Ross Crawford, Jr. was born in Memphis 1934. He began playing piano at a young age, but when his father (who had long wanted to be a great saxophonist) brought an alto sax home with him from the army, young Bennie quickly picked it up. He earned the nickname “Hank” while attending college in N...

Making their mark as a “philosophical jam band” in 2012, Young Jesus has gotten progressively more experimental with each release, culminating into the perfect mix of indie- introspectiveness outward experimentalism that is The Whole Thing is Just There. “I have begun a nihilistic laugh/ I have...
