MetaMusician: Those Who Wish to Be

This January, a true legend of the rock community passed away. Neil Peart died at the age of 67 in Santa Monica, California. As a Rush fan, hearing the news was unreal.

Look, not everyone can have an untouchable taste in music. Maybe I doknow at least 32 post-blackgaze neo-crust punk-jazz-fusion bands to each 1 of your indie pop starlets, but maybe just MAYBE I want to sit back and unwind a little.

It’s somewhat humbling to walk into a falling-apart Subway and see two of your favorite musicians sitting at a table eating a pre-gig meal. Even the rich and famous get hungry, after all. Nonetheless, an interview over foot-long subs and Diet Cokes is still an interview. I greeted them and we immediately...

Saint Motel occupies a strange space in music: you may not know their name, but I guarantee you’ve heard their songs. Hits like ​"Move" ​and ​"My Type" were fairly high charting songs that are constantly featured in commercials, online video, and get radio play to this day. Their newer releases...

It’s almost primetime for a Pisces! With their season lasting from February 19- March 20, a Pisces’ peak is coming soon. This sign reflects compassion, artistic ability, and imagination. As a Water element, this sign is rather emotional and sensitive. They are known to be rather mysterious yet...

Bringing the magic of unplugged back: Courtney Barnett

Alejandro Hirsch Saed

December 10, 2019

Queens of the Stone Age (QOTSA) are not (yet) regarded as an official “classic rock” band, so to speak, however, their influence on modern heavy rock puts them at par with the classics. QOTSA has been one of my favorite bands for the majority of my life as a result of my parent’s awesome taste...

We all know and love the iconic college party song “Closer” by The Chainsmokers, featuring Halsey. If you don’t, then “do you really college?” No judgment, but after seeing this meme, I thought to myself how EDM is prominent in the college party scene. It is the perfect music to dance and get...
