REVIEW: Arlie – Wait

Arlie’s debut EP on the Atlantic label fits in well with the predominant form of indie rock on the internet. The sound palate is soft and hazy, but the tracks keep the listener moving with thick drums and fat bass lines. The lyrics are sentimental and nostalgic, the vocal performances are generally...

My introduction to Saint Sister was through Shape of Silence and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Coming from a sad girl™ music connoisseur, Shape of Silence hit the spot. The entire album felt like what crying your eyes out in the middle of a beautiful field probably feels like. The...

With the release of Kurt Vile’s Bottle It In, there was a link that compelled me to “CLICK HERE FOR A MESSAGE FROM KURT.” I am a slave to marketing and personalized messages and getting attention, so I immediately clicked there for a message from Kurt himself. Though it was not as good as a...

Crush Hi is the newest release from Airhead DC, the solo project of D.C. native Vishal Narang. In this popish LP with an alternative rock twist, Narang explores all the ups and downs that come along with a new relationship. The airy, lighthearted leading track, “Yechon,” describes the exhilarating...

Broncho’s fourth album Bad Behavior is a great indie rock album to dance to if you don’t listen to the lyrics too closely. Although just under 30 minutes long, this album will probably be a standout in this year’s indie rock album releases. Based in Oklahoma, Broncho was formed in 2010 by Ryan...

Filed under Music Reviews

Buxton’s newest record, Stay Out Late, unfortunately, did not impress me. This album was my first introduction to the group’s discography, and I think there’s something to be said about the sound that Buxton is trying to achieve that really throws me off. I’m left stumped on the direction that...

When I first heard about Hypnic Jerks, the unexpected new LP by indie punk group The Spirit of the Beehive, I was honestly a little worried. When I first listened to the Philadelphia rock band in 2017 on the critically acclaimed Pleasure Suck, it was out of love for their distorted basement-rock sty...

Up until about a year ago, I didn’t use any music streaming services. I bought the music I thought I wanted. This led me down a path where I was only really listening to the popular acts and I was only listening to their popular songs. I had Nirvana’s Nevermind and loved it but worried that I might...

Have you ever been just jamming to some tunes while multitasking and then a song comes on and you are just hit with these intense memories? I honestly have and most of it happens with a lot of music I used to be obsessed with in my childhood. I just have this flashback-kind-of-moment where a weird...
