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...

Bringing the magic of unplugged back: Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett

Alejandro Hirsch Saed

December 10, 2019

The first things that come to mind when someone mentions Courtney Barnett are her fast electric guitar, the monotonous voice, and her conversational lyrics. I was hesitant at first when I heard she was releasing an MTV unplugged album, because while the toned down concert method has defined the careers...

Recently in my regular article, Respect the Classics, I wrote about the incredibly talented and underrated grunge rock band, Slothrust (if you haven’t read it yet, you should.)  The stars somehow aligned in the universe and I was granted a Press and Photo Pass from none other than the PR rep for Slothrust....

JPEGMAFIA- All My Heroes Are Cornballs (EQT Recordings) From the very first seconds on track one of JPEGMAFIA’s third full-length album, you know you’re in for an experience that’s out of the ordinary. Glitchy, distorted, crowd noise is the very first thing you hear on the opening track, Jesus...

Birth of Violence is the perfect addition to any Halloween playlist. Its songs creep along at a slow rate but will leave you hooked and wanting more, anxious for the release of the measured build. The subtle buzzing and humming that accompanies the songs adds a layer of sound that influences the stro...

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...

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...

Jackie Ashmen

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,...

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...

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,...
