Filed under A & E, music

In September my brother immersed me in enough rap and hip-hop that I began enjoying it as a genre. Since then, the music I listen to has been integrated with artists such as Chance the Rapper, Jon Bellion, Milo, Open Mike Eagle and Childish Gambino. Among the first full rap mixtapes that I listened to–and still one of my fa...

Filed under A & E, music, showcase

There are very, very few albums or artists or songs that I listen to for more than eight months at a time. One of the exceptions to this is indie rock band Saint Motel, so when their new album saintmotelevision was released this past October, I got really excited. However, I was soon met with disappointment. But first, a littl...

Hayley Kiyoko teased her fans for a solid month before the release of her new EP “Citrine” with teaser trailers, music videos and Instagram posts. Finally, at midnight, Sept. 30, she released it to the public and it is even better than expected. Compared to other Disney child stars, Kiyoko has...

Home of the Strange album review

Justin Cupps, News Editor

September 6, 2016


Filed under A & E, music

After returning to the music scene following an almost universally adored sophomore studio album Mind Over Matter (2014), alternative rock band Young the Giant released their newest album, Home of the Strange, on Aug.12 with new twists on their music. But before that, a short history of this band. Originally formed in 2004 and dubbed ‘The ...

Affinity album review

The metal aspect of the album came through in the following 40 minutes of music with driving guitar chops and 3-minute long solos accompanied by drums that oscillate between grooves that could have been created by a three year old and some of the most complex beats I’ve ever heard.

Our Rating: 6.2/10

I’d like to start out by saying that while I do listen to music across different genres, I have never particularly liked progressive metal, but I figured I should try something new after all of the indie/alternative albums I’ve reviewed. Just as all bands meet, Haken was formed in 2007 when former To-Mera guitarist Richard Hen...
