Image In case you‰'re a new reader of Another Kind of Currency, you may not know of my deep passionate love for indie-punk band Titus Andronicus. I‰'ve written about them quite a few times before (even getting a recognized by Patrick himself on the band‰'s twitter) but I haven‰'t said much about t...

There‰'s a band from Italy that I fell in love with during the heights of my high school years. Hailing from Italy, the band SNIPERDOGS, adorned in baseball team outfits for a thematic reason that can‰'t seem to cross the language barrier, developed their own version of the standard punk rock formula...

The 2018 Grammy awards were underwhelming to say the least. Some (including me) may say that Bruno Mars didn‰'t deserve to win the three biggest awards of the night, but something was surprisingly lackluster at these particular awards despite Mars‰' accolades. One of the many faults of the Grammys...

A year later, they dove in head first. These beautiful wizards cranked out another EP, titled People Can‰'t Stop Chillin. This seven trac...

With the start of the semester kicking into full gear I thought I would write about an artist that I like to listen to when I seriously need to focus on my work without the distraction of lyrics that I have memorized and beats that take me away from my work. I was never really a fan of instrumental music...

Image courtesy of Genius It's a bit bold of a statement to say that Holocene is a confusing song. Especially since there is such a flow to the song, but I guess that‰'s the point, you don‰'t know of this great illusion. There is a constant, threading of the strumming of two guitars to create the illus...

Image courtesy of blurrypastel Disclaimer: My music taste in high school was really bad and all over the place I consider my high school music journey to be pretty standard. There was an emo phase, a pop-punk phase, a 2013 Tumblr aesthetic phase, and many more. While, admittedly, I still listen to some of ...

Set the scene: a newly turned nineteen-year-old out in Chinatown living his best life. A rendition of Solange‰'s “Cranes in the Sky‰” is being played on a trumpet in the background. The street is abuzz with the usual excitement that comes along with the Capital One Area having an event. This...

Photo courtesy of Belilmalebridia I am always astounded at what happens within a year and all the changes that take place. Everything serves as a purpose and not everything and stay or remain. Love seems to be the only constant in life yet sometimes we also must let that go too. Love can serve as a lesson and by letting it be our g...
