MetaMusician: Experience is King

MetaMusician: Experience is King

Sam Graziano

October 24, 2019

I believe art in all forms deserves various forms of consideration in order to gain as much as one can. Each type of consideration can be seen as looking at art through a different lens, a different perspective. One kind of consideration is analysis. This is combing through a song, a film, or a painting...

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

October 23, 2019

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...

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,...

Big Meme Moods: “Me, Trying to Take Your Sadness Away”

Meme Cat

Georgia Abdow

October 22, 2019

This is one of the most wholesome memes I have ever laid my eyes on, in that it depicts an act of kindness to someone in need of a pick-me-up. It reads, “Your sadness” and “Me, trying to take away your sadness,” where a cat tugs at a blanket. I thought I would lighten up the mood from my last column and give you a playlist that d...

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...

Headphoning It In: Rubber Soul, the Key to Psychedelic Rock

Madee Sadozai

October 18, 2019

1965: Fifty-four years ago, the sound of music changed forever. Not just because the film Sound of Music was released that year, but because Rubber Soul, the Beatles’ sixth studio album, came into existence. Allow me to so bold as to make my intentions clear: my one and only agenda in life is for ev...

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...

Bon Iver in Concert

Alejandro Hirsch Saed

October 18, 2019

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,...
