Clairo Review

Frida

If you’re a pseudointellectual art nerd like me, you must watch “Frida,” like now. Filmmaker Julie Taymor’s biographic drama depicting the life of Frida Kahlo, the Mexican surrealist painter is nothing less than an artistic masterpiece.

Dancing to Boogie Shoes

Dancing is a cure-all for sadness. Whenever I’m feeling sad or alone, I blast the Saturday Night Fever album at full volume and dance like a maniac. The fervid movements of my limbs distract me for a short time from whatever it is that I’m anxious about at that moment. Out of all the songs on the album “Boogie Shoes” by KC and the Sunshine band is my favorite by far.

Vampire Weekend Deserve the World

Vampire Weekend’s long awaited fourth LP, Father of the Bride, was released on May 6th of last year. Although the band lost one of its founding members, Rostam Batmanglij, the album received widespread critical acclaim, was nominated for Album of the Year, and won Alternative Album of the Year at the Grammys this year. These accolades come as no surprise for Vampire Weekend truly and honestly deserves the world.
