TIDAL: The Music Industry’s Biggest Lie

Major modern artists all the way from Alicia Keys to Jay Z have come together to release one of the first ever artist owned music platforms… or, so they say. “Jimi Hendrix once said, that music doesn’t lie,” Alicia Keys spoke at the podium for TIDAL’s launch video, and she’s right. Music doesn’t lie, but these musicians who have come together to be a face for the type of companies they state they are against? That is a lie, perhaps one of the biggest lies we have ever seen in the…

ALBUM REVIEW: Bleachers ‘Strange Desire’

I first heard of indie pop band Bleachers – created by Jack Antonoff (best known as lead guitarist of fun.) and comprised of Antonoff with his pre-fun. band Steel Train – through a lovely little app called Spotify. Thanks to an advertisement for Bleachers’ incredibly catchy hit single, “I Wanna Get Better,” the song became an instant personal favorite shortly after clicking on the ad. Go give it a listen and try to tell me the same didn’t happen for you. In fact, listen to the whole album, which is…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Black Keys ‘Turn Blue’

It’s been 3 years since the duo of Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney have released a studio album, and a lot has happened to The Black Keys in that time. To put it simply, they blew up since the release of El Camino, with their tracks featured in commercials, movie trailers and other forms of media. Unsurprisingly, the Keys have once again released an impressive record with Turn Blue, catering to old fans and attracting some new. Please follow and like us:

ALBUM REVIEW: Conor Oberst ‘Upside Down Mountain’

I’ll just come right out and say it: I have never listened to Bright Eyes before. *Gasp!* I know, what kind of music fan am I, right?! Before this year, I had no idea what kind of music Bright Eyes played or who Conor Oberst was, but to redeem myself, I had heard of both. With the release of the Bright Eyes frontman’s new solo album, I took the opportunity to finally grace my ears with the magnificent voice of Conor Oberst. And as I expected, I was not disappointed…

ALBUM REVIEW: The Y Axes ‘Sunglasses & Solar Flares’

Imagine approaching a venue of your local music scene. You can vaguely hear the band start to play as you approach the building, music slightly muted before you first open the door and walk towards the stage. That right there is essentially the introduction from San Francisco-based quartet The Y Axes’ new album Sunglasses & Solar Flares. The Y Axes describe their music as “drawing influence from a myriad era of popular and esoteric music to craft a fun original style” and I couldn’t agree more. This female-led indie pop…

ALBUM REVIEW: Ray & Remora ‘1994’

It’s been twenty years since the nineties. It was a time before iPods, iPads, and iPhones. A time before Y2K, before the rise of indie, and before music got intimate with technology. Twenty years ago, musical trends were defined by a raw, alternative rock sound. Ray & Remora kindled this sound. On 1994, Ray & Remora played around with music from 1994 and created their debut album — a composition of songs from twenty years ago, vocals that are timeless, and instrumentals that are both distorted and distinctive.
