“Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song” by Amos Lee

Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song is Amos Lee’s fifth studio album. In comparison to his other albums, which are full of rock and soul, this new album has more of a country sound and vibe to it. It’s a new and refreshing sound that makes you want to continue listening to the rest of […]

“Innocents” by Moby

“Innocents” by Moby

More than twenty years after he first started making waves in the music industry, small bespectacled producer Moby still stands an unexpectedly formidable creative force in electronic music on his latest studio album, Innocents. From the serene, swirling beginning of the album, “Everything that Rises,” it is clear that this release is more of the […]

“Heart of Nowhere” by Noah & the Whale

“Heart of Nowhere” by Noah & the Whale

Since their debut release of Peaceful The World Lays Me Down (2008), Noah And The Whale have been on a dramatic, sentimental, and unpredictable trajectory of change and adjustment. The band’s growth has not only come sonically and stylistically to affect their music, but also thematically as this group of contemplative young people, led by […]

“Love and War” by Tamar Braxton

“Love and War” by Tamar Braxton

Tamar’s album begins with the first track “The One,” a remake of the Notorious B.I.G.’s “Juicy” single released in 1994. This track starts off the album with a real hip-hop feel that gets us worked up to hear some classic 90s style jams, but “Tip Toe” switches it up. “Tip Toe,” the next song, brings […]

“Harmony” by Serena Ryder

“Harmony” by Serena Ryder

Serena Ryder’s new album, Harmony, is a departure from her country-folk roots. This is her fifth studio album and in the five years since her last release she has completely revolutionized her sound aesthetic. The album is a hodgepodge barrage of stylistic elements that come together to highlight her vocal range and musical dexterity. From the […]

“Chop Chop” by Bell X1

“Chop Chop” by Bell X1

Bell X1, the rock outlet from Ireland, changed up their sound on their sixth studio release, Chop Chop. Backed by Peter Katis, a producer for The National, the album plays off a very similar sound to High Violet but also goes in its own creative direction that you would not typically expect from Bell X1. The […]

“All People” by Michael Franti & Spearhead

“All People” by Michael Franti & Spearhead

Michael Franti & Spearhead’s newest album, All People, is a mercurial mélange of influences, styles, and messages. The album takes the listener on a journey from an electro-dance DJ summit in Ibiza out to a satellite orbiting earth. It then crashes down for a midnight car ride through quite city streets and eventually ends up […]

“American Kid” by Patty Griffin

“American Kid” by Patty Griffin

Patty Griffin’s Americana folk has been a staple in American music since the early ‘90s after being discovered while playing her way through Boston coffee houses. Throughout her extensive discography, Griffin has explored a variety of sounds, from acoustic and stripped-down to more rock and roll and then back again. Despite the shifts in sound, […]
