By: Pam Burrows Yours Conditionally is the fourth studio album from the band Tennis, made up of married couple, Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley from Denver, Colorado. The music on this album is reminiscent to the band’s previous works, as it is very calm, quiet, and easy to listen to. 2011’s Cape Dory served as their first album, and was written about the couple’s eight-month vacation at sea after their wedding. Yours Conditionally was similarly written from a boat, as...

By: Peter Zezas To start off with the album artwork, I really like the colorful X-ray of a person they have the cover. In fact, it actually looks like there is, not only, someone’s side profile but another person looking directly at you. I like how the album is called “Hot Thoughts” and they covered the front and top area of the skull with red to show the “hot” thoughts. At first, my thought was this album was going to...

By Dylan Cetrulo As a name synonymous with garage rock over the past decade, San Francisco-based multi-instrumentalist Ty Segall has been one of the most prolific musicians of recent times just by sheer productivity. Coming off of his most experimental project yet, The Muggers, with their 2016 release Emotional Mugger. While Emotional Muggers was not exactly a completely new Segall, this self-titled album is much more of a return to the work fans have recognized Segall for. Fans of Segall’s...

By: Jonathan Hoch I was very pleased with all four songs on this album. I think the lyrics are very deep, and very poignant, but not too complex for anyone to not understand. The entire sound of the band is incredible, and I should also note that the lyrics for every song but specifically “Too Much Love”, and “My Nature” are downright honest and straight to the point. I feel that the inspiration behind the songs had to be a...
