Review: The 1975 – Being Funny in a Foreign Language

After several years of exaggerated, dramatic, long-winded projects, The 1975 have released Being Funny In a Foreign Language – an apology album. The opening track, per the usual named “The 1975”, is a completely different track than the one we’re used to when we embark on a new album journey. Where we once heard Matty […]

Eras of Influence: 2010-2016 – Kanye West

This article is part of an ongoing series in which I examine the artists and music that defined specific eras of my life. You can read my previous installment on Underoath, covering the years 2004-2010. *** It’s been nearly a year since I wrote the last installment of my admittedly self-indulgent and meandering Eras of […]

Pusha T Celebrates Past, Present, and Future on It’s Almost Dry Tour

As the crowd began filling the floor of the Egyptian Room at Old National Centre in Indianapolis last week, the excessively bright lights from the stage beamed a direct message: Pusha T. It’s Almost Dry. Rap Album of the Year. It’s a bold statement that’s also hard to argue. The name It’s Almost Dry, which […]

Reflecting On: Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

Ah yes, the year is 2012. I am 14, a few months away from 15, and simply desperate to prove I am “not like other girls.” I am at a friend’s birthday sleepover, and one of the girls asks if we should turn on some music. I volunteer immediately, pulling my orange 5th gen iPod […]

Riot Fest: My Chemical Romance Usher in the Return of Punk Rock

Riot Fest is always a bit of a shit show. It’s where Warped Tour kids went once they began contributing to a 401(k). But there is a draining magic to the event that draws us back year after year to brave the heat and feet for 10 straight hours a day. But this time, just […]

mewithoutYou’s Final Boston Show

I can hardly believe the title of this article. It feels like forever ago, and I suppose in a way it was, that mewithoutYou posted that fateful update on their website in October 2019 that started with, “By the end of next year mewithoutYou will no longer be active.” It feels like forever ago that […]
