Corroded – Defcon Zero

Alright, time for me to get out of my comfort zone. In my previous review, I mentioned gravitating toward music that is "vibe-y." Well, here I am writing about a metal group I had never of until received a PR email. Wanna know a secret? We discover lots of music via publicists! Shocking, right? But Spotify and my musical ...

Get off your couch and jam these [single reviews]

Phangs - "Always Been U": Phangs, one of Nashville's rising pop personalities, may have just teased one of the longest build ups to a single I've seen. I think it will pay off though, judging from how "Always Been U" delivers on both the "it gives me the feels" and "whoa nelly that's a banger" fronts. Phangs has slowly been ...

Let’s fly to Panama [single reviews]

Panama - "Hope For Something": The Sydney, AU synth pop artist is back with the optimistic "Hope For Something." The sunny track feels like a marriage of Bastille and Passion Pit.

I wrecked my car but I’m feelin’ good [single reviews]

Photo credit: Coley Brown Mac DeMarco - "On the Level": Let's start this post with a song a little more out there, eh? "On the Level" goes against the wild reputation of DeMarco with simplistic synth pop that, dare I say it, has a slice of darkwave. Actually to be honest, I'm not really sure how this song makes me feel, ...

Two Versions: An Analysis of Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” & “Endless”

Anticipation for the follow-up to Frank Ocean’s Channel ORANGE has been at an all-time high for quite some time now. The successor to his highly-praised debut mixtape nostalgia, ULTRA, the album had garnered widespread critical acclaim for its unique blending of genres (such as R&B, pop, soul, psychedelic rock, and ...
