Teen Mortgage walked off the stage at DC9 with the gaits of soldiers leaving a battlefield- accomplished and certain of victory even if they had poured out the Pacific in terms of the combined sweat between the two of them. One quick whip of the neck...

Y‰'all need to stop what you‰'re doing and read this thought-provoking journal for today‰'s column. I just discovered this song the other day and I cannot stop listening to it. This artist is not well known and so therefore there is not a lot written about him or the type of music he is creati...

Image courtesy of BBC Despite not having as large a following as genre-mates Frightened Rabbit, Scottish indie-folk band Admiral Fallows has always had a special place in my heart. From the moment I first hear the bombastic chorus of their first single “Squealing Pigs,‰” I was sold. However, w...

It is about time that I wrote about The Smiths. The Manchester band have been my favorite since at least the summer before my junior year of high school. I listen to them all the time, they are great for when you are sad and just want to mope in it and they are good when you just want some good tunes. The...

Lately I‰'ve been feeling nostalgia. Maybe it‰'s because we are more than a month into the New Year. Maybe it‰'s because its my first year of college. Maybe it's just because and there is no rhyme or reason to these kind of things. We just feel how we feel sometimes and that‰'s okay. Last week...

Time for story time again! My newest installment involves a homeless man, Diana Gordon, and the ever-changing qualities of friendship. Most recently, I have found college life to be, for lack of a better word, tumultuous. Let‰'s just say it‰'s been a bit messy! To summarize, in February alone, I‰'ve...

Image link It was August 23rd. I remember being anxious as all hell- I would be starting my first semester at American University and college in general in about a day or two. I brought the person I was dating with me at the time in part because I thought they‰'d enjoy the music, in part because my...

Image courtesy of Huffington Post Hello my beautiful lovelies, I say let‰'s go on a road trip. You know that game where you have to pick one book you would want on a deserted island for the rest of your life. This is kind of similar. I say that if I had to go on a road trip (but really “had‰” isn‰'t the right word b...

Image In case you‰'re a new reader of Another Kind of Currency, you may not know of my deep passionate love for indie-punk band Titus Andronicus. I‰'ve written about them quite a few times before (even getting a recognized by Patrick himself on the band‰'s twitter) but I haven‰'t said much about t...

There‰'s a band from Italy that I fell in love with during the heights of my high school years. Hailing from Italy, the band SNIPERDOGS, adorned in baseball team outfits for a thematic reason that can‰'t seem to cross the language barrier, developed their own version of the standard punk rock formula...

The 2018 Grammy awards were underwhelming to say the least. Some (including me) may say that Bruno Mars didn‰'t deserve to win the three biggest awards of the night, but something was surprisingly lackluster at these particular awards despite Mars‰' accolades. One of the many faults of the Grammys...
