To begin, I want to elaborate on what this article and its potential sibling articles existing in that nebulous jet-pack future are about. With it being the case that I have been in a lot of bands and other musical projects over years-worth spaces of time, I find that, on at least more than one occasion,...

We asked for music to dig our toes in the earth with, to remember how utterly helpless we are in the grasp of good music, and 4 years after his self-titled LP, my man Hozier has finally delivered with his new EP Nina Cried Power and the promise of a full album in 2019. His emergence from presumably b...

Last week I got to see one of my favorite artists on the scene right now, Childish Gambino. My friends and I had bought tickets the day they came out, months ago. Within hours he sold out Captial One Arena. After three songs he addressed the audience, telling everyone to put your phones down. He continued...

I’ve been a big fan of Panic! At the Disco’s music for a very long time. Really, though, the only original band member that remains is Brendon Urie. He tends to be the one who writes the music for the band. The song, “Nicotine”, seems to showcase Urie’s talents in songwriting. One of his b...

I refused to tell my mom where I was going Friday night. “It’s something you’ll be very jealous of,” I assured her. I knew she was probably looking up my location every five minutes, trying to crack the case. I knew that eventually she would see me in the Capital One arena, getting ready to witness...

Well, someone had to address the elephant in the room. As of midnight on September 21st, 2018, Brockhampton’s fourth full-length studio album iridescence had hype-beasts and hipsters alike scrambling for their headphones. The California-based, self-dubbed “boyband” currently boasts a whopping 13 members...

I really am a sucker for the home-grown sort of scratchiness that is imbued in garage rock, the genre that embraced DIY aesthetics and attitudes long before it had any right to. It was a strew of scenes where the major players had, at the very least, enough out of a list of a few integral desires in...

Lindsey Jordan aka Snail Mail’s recent album Lush was one of the most enthralling indie projects of the summer, a record that seamlessly takes into account the acute restlessness that suburban youth know all too well. The combination of Jordan’s pragmatic self-awareness and commanding guitar prowe...

Who do you listen to when you go to Trader Joe’s and don’t want to carry your groceries up the stairs? Junglepussy. Who do you listen to when you want to grow? Junglepussy. Who do you listen to when you realize your ex-boyfriend never took you to the zoo? Junglepussy. She can rap, she can act, a...

After a two-year break, R&B singer Miguel has reemerged and he comes bearing gifts. Flaunting his soft, coily dreadlocks and slightly gold-capped smile, the R&B free spirit returned to us with his newest album, War & Leisure, on December 1st 2017. The album is strongly represented by songs...

I originally thought my write up for Primavera Sound would be a little different. I now sit here, a victim of police brutality and an alleged police kicker in the “header‰Û. I‰'m leaving Spain, and leaving Primavera Sound in order to attempt to ensure my safety because I‰'m still very much confused...

Sounds amazing, doesn't it? This is Primavera Sound, the music destination of the World. Set in one of the best...
