By Sarah Gregor On Wednesday, November 7th, I saw Iron and Wine in concert at the Paramount in Huntington, New York. I have gone to The Paramount numerous times in my life for other concerts and it has easily become one of my favorite venues to go to. The spacious yet quaint standing room allows […]

Reviewed by Aneta Ostasz On September 6, 2018, Hozier released a new EP titled Nina Cried Power; this is his first release in about four years. The EP consists of four songs: “Nina Cried Power (feat. Mavis Staples)”, “NFWMB”, “Moment’s Silence (Common Tongue)”, and “Shrike.” The EP has a mix of blues and gospel as well as […]

By Sarah Gregor On Saturday, November 3rd I saw the band Mom Jeans at Asbury Lanes. Asbury Lanes sounds exactly how you think it would: it is a bowling alley. This was somewhat off-putting in terms of wondering how the venue was going to cater to a band in the middle of a bowling alley, […]

By Brian Lange When Modest Mouse takes the stage in 2018, it’s a sight to behold. The indie rock band that cut their teeth playing local shows as a power trio in the Pacific Northwest now plays stages like the Wellmont in Montclair with eight musicians. 20-year-old songs – originally recorded with just guitars, bass, […]

By Victoria Merse Nothing But Thieves headlined at House of Independents this past Saturday the 13th of October. Demob Happy were one of the two openers for the event and they played what I thought was an excellent set. The band is made up of three members Matthew Marcantonio, Thomas Armstrong, and Adam Godfrey. Their […]

By Stacy J Fernandez Station Manager Kate Braunstein and Assistance News Director AJ Melillo, anchored the Montclair State student live broadcast on election night, that took place on November 6th. They both conversed the importance of Election night and how it may affect the future. The countdown to the polls closing raised tension for many […]

Reviewed by Nate Williams           The English virtual band and alternative rock icons Gorillaz, created by Blur frontman Damon Albarn and artist Jamie Hewlett, released their sixth studio album, The Now Now, amidst their 20th anniversary. The Now Now takes place during Phase 5 of the band’s fictional storyline and amidst another signature change […]

By Mike Stringham On Tuesday, October 16th at Brooklyn Bazaar I saw TTNG (FKA This Town Needs Guns) perform their seminal album Animals in its entirety. Not only did they play their best album, they did it with their original vocalist, Stuart Smith. He left the band in 2010 to many fans dismay (including myself), […]

Reviewed by Alex Greco Panic! at the Disco is pop-punk/pop-rock band originating from Las Vegas, Nevada. Over the years the band has gone from less rock to more pop to satisfy the industry’s wants. Its only member, Brendon Urie, is a flamboyant and wild lead singer. He isn’t afraid to hit the high notes. Pray […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, October 26th I got to see Minus The Bear at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. Minus The Bear has been a staple in the genre that is math rock for nearly the last two decades. Without them, current math rock would not be where it is, almost noticeable. Some […]

Reviewed by Evan Dekens             In the tradition of artists like Cat Power and Grouper, Mother of My Children, Black Belt Eagle Scout’s debut record offers a stirring collection of dissonant tones, haunted memories, and a sleek, modern guitar sound. Katherine Paul, the woman behind Black Belt Eagle Scout, has described herself as a “radical indigenous queer feminist,” an identity very […]

By Jeffrey Alexander Lopez STRFKR at first glance glitzes and shines like a 1980’s pop band, toying and testing the limits of the synthesizer, but at a closer glimpse beams to a more psychedelic synth. Of all the adjectives that best fit the band and their style, “futuristic and spacey” comes to mind. Borrowing from […]

By Mike Stringham I got to see Modest Mouse at Wellmont Theater on Wednesday, October 10th. Having seen them last year, I was excited to get to review them for a second consecutive year. I didn’t catch the opening band, but I’m almost certain they had an awful name.   Anyway, it seemed as if […]

Review by Nate Williams Rating: 10/10 Ritual Unions It’s rare that I consider a musical performance perfect, I don’t even give myself that satisfaction after a well-received performance. So when I tell you that Swedish electronic band Little Dragon’s concert at Elsewhere Hall in Brooklyn was perfect beyond description, you know that I mean it. Opening […]

Reviewed by Stacy Fernandez Sweetener by Ariana Grande is a refreshing and creative album that gives music a new definition. She gives her fans a taste of her wicked range, creativity and personality. This album is an amazing combination of Pop and R&B. My three personal favorites are “breathin”, “NTLTS” and “everytime”. The first two tracks […]

Alvvays Concert Review by Mike Stringham   I saw Alvvays at Warsaw in Brooklyn last night, but ironically enough I went to the wrong venue first, but then realized it was at good ol’ Warsaw; the home of fresh pierogies and live music. I was on the guest list thanks to Mercury East Presents, and […]

by Victoria A. Merse Hozier’s performance at the Beacon Theatre September 24th was an unforgettable experience. The show started out with a performance from the Irish Folk Duo Hudson Taylor. The group consists of two brother Alfie and Harry who grew up in Dublin Ireland and formed there duo in 2011. The performance was unforgettable […]

By Danny Rinaldi Successful post-punk indie outfit, Interpol, returns for their sixth studio release with Marauder. This album, while undoubtedly suffering from some degree of production issues, proves to be an exciting release for the group as it projects a certain energy and rawness that’s distinct compared to Interpol’s previous efforts.  It’s no mystery that between the […]

by Jeffrey Alexander Lopez Remo Drive has taken the emo scene by storm and given it a new hope. Made principally up of two brothers, Erik and Stephen Paulson, Remo Drive’s music has risen to the top. Releasing their album, “Greatest Hits” on the 16th of March 2017, they gave the cuffed jean wearing, flannel […]

by Charlie Hilfiker Blue Light Bandits’ self-titled album is a fresh and relaxing album. Fans of John Mayer will enjoy similar vibes off of Blue Light Bandits’ album. The lead singer’s voice is reminiscent of A Great Big World. This album is a nice combination of Rock, Pop, and R&B. My personal favorites are “Back […]
