Picture this: you’re a 13 year old Milo and you’re anxiously researching your own punk status to prevent your potential present and future poseur-dom. In order to do this, you’ve literally begged your ex-hippie father to buy you Al Spicer’s A Rough Guide to Punk(not a good book but it got you ...

Of the many musicians that have stepped into the limelight over the decades, Eddie Van Halen, the life-long guitar player for the band Van Halen, was one of the few to leave a lasting footprint on the music industry. Eddie is regarded as one of the great guitar players of his time and all time. Although...

I kinda lost track of my time here in America, especially after the one-year mark. I mean, I was supposed to fly home in May, but then the pandemic happened, and things were always changing. Like seriously tho, AU was still planning to do dorm and offline classes a week or so before August, so when everything...

Respect the Classics: Radiohead and Muse

Respect the Classics: Radiohead and Muse

Some of the most dramatic, emotional, and heart-wrenching music can be found in Radiohead’s discography. That same sentiment can be true when you skim through the records that Muse has produced. Though both bands were founded within a decade of each other, the similarities of Radiohead and Muse are...

Once upon a time two years ago during my sophomore year, I was handed the aux in an Uber with friends on our way to a concert. It was a girl’s night. But as I scrolled through my playlists, I was shocked at the lack of actual female artists; particularly Black and Brown women that I had to play. It...

Life seems to be full of question marks these days, and all of this time spent quarantining in solitude and social distancing can inspire some serious self-reflection.

Lady Gaga is one of the figures in modern pop that feels like the icon of a generation. In the same way that figures such as The Beatles or Michael Jackson define an era of pop music, either through pioneering or perfecting the genre as it stood when they came to fame, Gaga felt like the final boss o...

Craft and Creativity Part Two: Emerging from my Obsession with Drums

Sam Graziano

October 13, 2020

I remember when I first started playing drums, they were the only thing I’d look for in music. I wanted to learn everything I could from the icons of my instrument. At this point in time, I was listening to music like a student in a classroom. I was there to gather information. Because this was my...

Let me preface all the following adulation I have for this song with something I should just get out of the way in advance: I’ve never done acid, nor do I plan to. Today I will be venturing to veer myself ever so slightly in your general, psychedelic direction because in this edition of “Why I Cover”,...

Dating back to the 1970s, indie music has been criticized and celebrated for a variety of reasons. Today, we dive into the history of indie music and consider the future of the genre. Originally, indie was used to describe musicians who were independently financed and rejected the status quo. Many...

The experience of listening to music as a musician is something I want to explore. Being involved in some activity gives one a different perspective when watching others engage in said activity. One may be more critical watching others perform when they know the skills need to perform. On the other hand,...

Before we start, I just wanna say that I hate being alone, so having to spend more than eight months living in solitary confinement was the worst thing ever. Heck, I was so scared I didn't even leave my apartment for more than two months, and the first time I really went outside was three in the morning....
