Witchy Woman: An Interview With Annabel Lee

Spellbinding. Hauntingly beautiful. Hypnotizing. When it comes to describing alternative songstress Annabel Lee, somehow all the fitting adjectives tend towards the supernatural. “Queen of swords, a mighty thing / But I would rather be a king,” she sings in her new song “Prey,” referencing tarot cards. But what really seals the deal on the Boston artist’s spooky sound (aside from the blatant nod to Edgar Allan Poe in her stage name, of course), is her video for her new track “Melting,” an eerily powerful song about “connections that can only…

ALBUM REVIEW: Parquet Courts ‘Sunbathing Animal’

Now brace yourself, some of the films on this list may be your favorites or…

4 Overlooked & Underrated Albums Of The Last 20 Years

While it will always be known as the year of Green Day’s Dookie (and rightfully so), 1994 was far grittier, funnier and weirder than the Billboard charts would let on. Here’s a list of four albums you might have forgotten about or never heard of to begin with, but that should be equally celebrated this year as they round respectively into their 20th anniversary.
