Psychedelic indie band MGMT dropped an album this weekend entitled Little Dark Age. It’s been ve years since 2013’s self-titled album MGMT, and it seems as though MGMT has spent this time circling back to their synth-pop roots.
Justin Timberlake recently dropped his “highly anticipated” fth album. Too bad it sucks. This album is a total op, much like his SuperBowl performance last week. When I think about Justin Timberlake, I think about his boy band days in NSYNC and I think about funky jams like “SexyBack” and “Suit & Tie.”
On Friday, the Wombats released their fourth album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life and I’ve been waiting for this for like 3 months and I WAS READY.
On Monday, Slayer announced on their official Instagram that they would be performing one last world tour. Starting in May in California, Slayer will embark on their final North American tour.
The Ally Coalition hosted it’s 4th annual “Talent Show” on January 24. The Ally Coalition was formed back in 2012 by the band Fun and designer Rachel Antonoff, basically with the mission of promoting equality for LGBTQ people. This Talent Show is held annually to benefit homeless LGBTQ youth in New York City.
Californian, alternative, indie band The Neighbourhood has released their fifth EP, To Imagine. The EP, coming after their 2017 release, Hard, was posted on the January 12. Its first song, “Dust,” which addresses climate change, begins with an ominous tone, talking about waterless lakes and fish growing wings to escape. The buildup leads to a pre-chorus with isolated vocals that seem to direct criticism at corporations and politicians, followed by a high-energy chorus.
It’s been awhile since we’ve heard anything from Tune-Yards. Their last release, “Nikki Nack” came out four years ago, me more than enough time to forget they existed. Tune-Yards is the experimental pop project of Merrill Garbus, a singer and multi-instrumentalist originally from Connecticut, with Nate Brenner on Bass.
BØRNS’ kicked off the new year with a new album! I’d consider myself a casual BØRNS fan, and by that I mean I could maybe name three of his songs. I definitely didn’t know he was coming out with a new album, so I went in with no expectations. This new release, Blue Madonna, had me feeling really out of touch with my body. I actually felt like I was in the middle of a lucid dream while I was listening to this album. I haven’t decided what that means exactly, but let’s just say that this album is full of some incredible sounds. These tracks are psychedelic as hell, but sometimes it’s a little too much for my delicate ears to handle. Believe me, this album is no “Electric Love.”
Yeah, The Grammys happened last night. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) You didn’t show…
Is it okay to like something even if the creator is problematic af?
