Album Review

By: Peter Zezas Cold War Kids newest album is called “L.A. Divine” and it’s genuinely interesting. The album artwork is a lonely palm tree somewhere in what looks like California. I have never listened to Cold War Kids before this and listening to their songs I get the essence of the Alternative group known as Fun. Specifically, songs like Restless and Part Of The Night sound like the teen anthem songs in Fun’s albums, such as, We Are Young and...

By: Connor Faleski New Jersey’s own Real Estate has just released their new album “In Mind”, and with this new project comes a cleaner sound that hasn’t been heard on any other album in their discography. The synths are amazingly light, filling up all empty spaces that the punchy drums, bass, and refreshingly Mac Demarco-esque guitars left behind. Although the leading track “Darling” offers a charmingly odd time signature groove that plays like a nice breeze to the face, the rest...

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: Peter Zezas The cover of this album looks like someone took a picture of Charlie Sheen in his 30s and then overlaid it with a 90s filter. Track 2 is interesting to say the least. This album gives me a sort of solo rock artist feel. This is definitely road trip kind of music that you sing to whether its corny or not – you sing with all your friends while cruising down the highway in mid-July. This is...

By Austin Resnick New Jersey trio, The Moms release a new EP titled Snowbird. Consisting of six original songs lasting all of 12 minutes, this EP ends before it feels like it even started, but it works. Each song consists of a blend of modern rock and punk, that is in your face and unapologetic about it. Opening track “Road Soda” is about a minute and a half long, but sets up the band’s sound and identity perfecting. “Seen Enough”...

Written By: Austin Resnick Korpilombolo, Sweden is where psychedelic rockers Goat call home, but their unique music has found its way across the ocean. Requiem, released in early October is the bands sophomore album with Seattle’s Sup Pop Records. Sup Pop, who famously state, “have been going out of business since 1988!”, always find new and interesting bands since signing a trio out of Aberdeen, Washington that became the biggest band in the world during the 90s. Goat is no...

Written By: Kevin Fry Hailing from Sweden, the dance-pop producer Olsson has delivered a pleasant surprise with Hold On. On the EP we are given two original songs by Olsson and a remix of both tracks. The titular track “Hold On” gets your head bobbing in rhythm with its hip-hop-esque drum loop and grooving bass-line. The song pays off with its sweeping, orchestral chorus. Meanwhile, the dance-able “Thin Love” picks up the pace with a sound that is strangely both...

By: Noelle Florio After listening to Partybaby’s “The Golden Age of Bullshit” I think that each song has a little bit of each genre in them. The first song, “Overload”, is a soft, acoustic song followed by “Your Old Man” that shows off the punk genre with the strong guitar and drum beat. The fourth song on the album called “California” is more of a slower, alternative song. I think that this album can be listened by many people no matter...
