Playlists and genre: a benefit or a harm to exploration

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...

Mondays are hard. Especially when those Mondays are full of back-to-back classes from 9:45 am to 8:00 pm followed by meetings, extracurriculars, a part time job, and let’s not forget that 10 page paper you neglected to write until the very last minute! How can you turn it in earlier though when you h...

There’s something to be said for music that needs to be listened to with the volume all the way up. Nashville rock outfit Idle Bloom’s new record Flood the Dial is nothing if not that kind of music. From the outset, the album is begging to be absolutely blasted from whatever speaker or headphon...

Five years ago, my musical taste was very different from what it is today. At the time, I knew nothing about jazz, I hadn’t found my appreciation for composers like Bernstein, and I hadn’t discovered the rush of listening to harder acts like My Ticket Home or Architects. Half a decade ago, my musical t...

Listening to Jerry Paper is like listening to the elevator music of the future (in a good way). Every track on Like A Baby will have you blinking slower and feeling foggy. There is something special about being able to make music that is some parts spacey, some parts funhouse, and just a touch of Mii ...

I prefer the sound of Bambi over Landmark if we’re comparing. They maintain their former sounds on a few cuts on the album like "Golden" or "Honestly," but it has a few songs that are on another level compared to their former works, like their first track "Mistakes," which has a very echoey, spacey...
