JPEGMAFIA- All My Heroes Are Cornballs (EQT Recordings) From the very first seconds on track one of JPEGMAFIA’s third full-length album, you know you’re in for an experience that’s out of the ordinary. Glitchy, distorted, crowd noise is the very first thing you hear on the opening track, Jesus...

Birth of Violence is the perfect addition to any Halloween playlist. Its songs creep along at a slow rate but will leave you hooked and wanting more, anxious for the release of the measured build. The subtle buzzing and humming that accompanies the songs adds a layer of sound that influences the stro...

Album Review: Judah & The Lion- Pep Talks

Catie Colucci

October 23, 2019

Judah and the Lion’s new album “Pep Talks” perfectly encapsulates what a well-balanced album looks like. It is reminiscent of the Bleacher’s “Gone Now” in which all of the songs follow a theme and parallel each other. Although many of the songs in “Pep Talks” are shorter than three-four...

Album Review: LEGACY! LEGACY! – Jamila Woods

Grace Mills

Jamila Woods’ voice is unlike any other I have heard before. Her sultry voice makes you crave to hear it more and understand the story she tells in her new album LEGACY! LEGACY! With lyrics such as “my weaponry is my energy” from the album’s second song "ZORA," Woods’ songs are angry and humo...

Jackie Ashmen

Formed in Baltimore, Maryland in 2010, The Competition is Lower Den’s fourth album. Beautifully crafted, written, and executed. A band that thrives on tackling the socio-political realm of songwriting, and not being afraid to express raw emotion. While the band’s previous album (released in 2015,...

Album Review: Snuff- There’s A Lot of It About

Annie Lee

October 21, 2019

My knowledge of punk, beyond the standard pop punk, comes exclusively from the tastes of my ex-boyfriend. As far as punk went, his favorite band was Minor Threat. I gotta be honest, they’re the only true punk band I’ve really listened to, but I adored their sound. After we broke up, I realized I...

Claire Daniel

On October 18th get ready to be lost in a world wind of whirling synths, punchy kick drums, and everyone’s favorite: slappy bass. Dominic Sen’s debut album, Visitors, is an utter masterpiece. The album is primarily an indie pop/rock record but it’s taken to another level. In a few of the songs,...

Despite only having only four tracks in total, Town Centre is a truly dynamic and compelling musical experience rivaling that of any full-length album. This debut EP by Squid perfectly exhibits the full extent of their musical creativity and versatility, both revisiting and emphasizing the post-pun...

I first listened to Bon Iver back in 2008 as a child. I was eleven, and in some way, I knew he would be great. The first time I saw him live was right after my first breakup. It is the band that has been with me through my teenage years all the way to my early adulthood. Now the band is more mature,...

Evan Salerno

Home Made Satan is the second album from Chastity, an alternative/indie rock band. The album takes an excellent transition from their first album Death Lust which had an edgier punk style to a more alternative rock sound that has melodies that seem trance-like at times. Home Made Satan has ten tracks...

Wilco- Ode To Joy (dBpm) Folky, grounded, elegant. Wilco shows off their ability to deliver a mature, simple album, with complex deep lyrics. It’s an ode to all aspects of love, from its beauty to its fragility. The album proves that Jeff Tweedy is better when he’s accompanied by his bandmates,...
