“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

“Ultraviolence” by Lana Del Rey

At the young age of eighteen, Elizabeth Woolridge Grant signed her first record deal with 5 Points Records. Although she had previously recorded and released music as May Jailer and Lizzie Grant, from then on, she took the name Lana Del Rey and quickly catapulted into international stardom. Her release of Lana Del Rey in 2010 and particularly Born […]

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

“Underneath the Rainbow” by The Black Lips

After logging in six studio albums, ten or more years of extensive touring experience, and releasing a well-received indie-documentary, the resume of The Black Lips, arguably the most hardworking and unstoppable garage punk band around, seems it could not get any longer. Yet the band shows no signs of slowing down and has cranked out […]

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

“Upside Down Mountain” by Conor Oberst

You can take the Conor Oberst out of Bright Eyes, but you can’t take the indie folk out of Conor Oberst. With his distinct, warbling voice and talent for meaningful, poetic lyrics, Oberst’s music is unmistakable no matter what moniker it is released under. There is no denying that Oberst shaped his brand of simple […]

“A Sea of Split Peas” by Courtney Barnett

Courtney Barnett, 24 year old singer/songwriter from Melbourne, Australia, gets the ‘slacker’ label tagged onto her in almost anything ever written about her. I wouldn’t call writing two of the most entertaining and refreshing EPs in recent memory slacking off. I know a lot of slackers, and they can’t find the energy to even listen to […]

“So Long, See You Tomorrow” by Bombay Bicycle Club

It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Bombay Bicycle Club on the scene, but they’ve come back (once again) with a completely different sound. Starting off with a jaunty, layered chorus of guitars, their newest album, So Long, See You Tomorrow enters with an all-new air of theatricality infused with psychedelic, almost pop at times, rock. […]

“Burn Your Fire For No Witness” by Angel Olsen

“I quit my dreaming the moment that I found you / I started dancing just to be around you,” Angel Olsen slowly lays out the first lines to “Unfucktheworld.” It is the first track on her latest record, Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Olsen moves in her usual, slow, folky ballad with a slightly […]

“Held in Splendor” by Quilt

In the Japanese language, there is a word to describe the particular kind of light that comes through foliage: komorebi. That we experience light in varying degrees and through different filters is a given, but it’s interesting how we often don’t pause to consider these variations. Quilt’s sophomore album, Held in Splendor, functions similarly as […]

“Voices” by Phantogram

Things aren’t always what they seem. Take a phantogram for example. By definition, a phantogram is an optical illusion that plays with depth and distortion to make a two-dimensional object appear three-dimensional. The male-female duo that makes up Phantogram plays with the very same perspective on their latest album, Voices. Hailing from upstate New York, musicians Sarah […]
