“The Olms” by The Olms

The Olms self titled debut album, a new project from veteran musicians Pete Yorn and J.D. King, is a real musician’s album with abundant influences and nods to other acts and rich in storytelling. Pete Yorn has been a mainstay singer-songwriter since the 2001 release of his debut Musicforthemorninafter. J.D. King is a proper renaissance […]

“The Clash Hits Back” by The Clash

“This is it for me,” former Clash guitarist Mick Jones told Rolling Stone when asked about September’s trilogy of new Clash compilations. “And I say that with an exclamation mark.” While ardent Clash fans will certainly feel the sting of Jones’s remarks—that these three releases mark the likely end of any future Clash-endorsed material—they have […]

“The Speed of Things” by Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

The year is 2010. Your dad just got a Facebook, you just got an iPhone, and everyone just learned what “hipster” means and use it every chance they get. Times were changing, and no one was waiting up for any music that didn’t demand their attention. So what was the best way to get people […]

“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 […]
