By Sarah Gregor On December 4th, I saw Kodaline at Irving Plaza. The New York City venue was some place I have never been to, but have heard a lot about because it usually features some more alternative, smaller known bands (which appeals to me). It almost reminded me of The Paramount Place in Huntington, […]

Reviewed by Luke Winnicki The Carter V shows us a matured and consistent Lil Wayne, and a satisfying addition to the Carter series, even after the long wait. This record, originally announced in 2014, sounds like something out of the mid-2000’s. It’s decidedly Bling Era aesthetic is fertile ground for Tunechi. We hear him flowing harder […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, November 30thI saw Snail Mail at White Eagle Hall. This was my second time seeing the band in the last few months, seeing them open for Alvvays at Warsaw in late September. It was 30 degrees out that night and I couldn’t find parking for a half hour, until I […]

By Mike Stringham On Friday, November 23rdI went to see Death From Above (1979) at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. This was another wonderful PopGun Presents show (they put on an overwhelming amount of cool shows) that I had the pleasure of attending. Ironically enough, I saw DFA in 2014 on Black Friday as well, but that […]

Reviewed by Luke Winnicki It’s hard to say what this new Cheem single sounds like. Here’s my best shot: It’s a mash-up of G-Funk Nujabes and Cap’n Jazz with a Lil Peep feature. The drums have the crisp hit of A Day to Remember mixed with the laid-back swing of J Dilla, while the guitars […]

Reviewed by Cassidy Lunney  It’s official, 2018 is the year of Drake. The rapper released Scorpion, a dual album this past June with hit, after hit, after hit blowing up on all streaming services. Now, Drake appears on Bad Bunny’s latest single titled, MIA not to be confused with M.I.A. The song has heavy Latin influences and roots. […]

 Reviewed by Cassidy Lunney Mike Posner was thought to be a one-hit wonder after the release of the hit song, Cooler Than Me, but since 2009 Posner has been quietly pumping out the jams. Earlier this year, Posner released a 33-song album titled Tear Drops and Balloons but what stood out most was a single released after […]

Reviewed by Yazmenne Archer              Mateo Arias, also known as Téo, has come a long way since his days as an actor on shows primarily on the Disney Channel network. Contrary to belief, he wasn’t a Disney star that was known for his musical or singing talent so it came as a surprise, that all of […]

Reviewed by Antonio Estrada Lupe Fiasco, a seasoned rapper and lyricist, is back at it again with his seventh studio album, Drogas Wave. This is his first album to be released while not being signed under Atlantic Records. Lupe and Atlantic have had their issues in the past with creative control and he has never […]

Reviewed by Alex Greco Twenty-One Pilots is a musical duo consisting of lead singer Tyler Joseph and drummer Josh Dun. Hailing from Columbus,Ohio, Twenty-One Pilots found major success from their previous album, Blurryface. They are well known for mixing different genres in their music. They are known for their alternative, rap, hip-hop, rock, electro-pop, and [...]

Reviewed by Annabel Reyes Teyana Taylor’s latest album, K.T.S.E (Keep That Same Energy), was the finishing touch to Kanye West’s five-album drop through G.O.O.D. Music and Def Jam Records’ productions this past June. Teyana Taylor’s R&B style that is representative of the Harlem neighborhood she grew up in, is bringing Kanye West back to the R&B flavor that […]

Reviewed by Joshua Maxi On September 16th, 6LACK finally came back with his sophomore album, East Atlanta Love Letter and he sure did come back hard. Best known for his platinum hit single “Prblms” off Free 6LACK (with one of my personal favorite album covers) from 2016, the rapper/singer from Atlanta returns right where he left off. With a […]

By Joshua Calderon When going to this year’s Skanksgiving at Starland ballroom, I wasn’t too excited because I haven’t been to one in over two years. When I arrived, it wasn’t too packed yet and the opening band wasn’t too great. As the night went on, the last three bands blew the roof off of the […]

By Josh Mathew Utterly brilliant is the best way, I think, to verbalize POND’s November 8th performance at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. Elsewhere is a fairly new venue in Bushwick, Brooklyn housing a wonderfully crafted performance space, a bar, cafe, and outdoor courtyard. A perfect, intimate space for up and coming bands to really showcase their sound. […]

By Sarah Gregor On Tuesday, November 20th I saw The Struts at The Paramount in Huntington NY. As an avid listener of The Struts, I was stoked to see them in concert. The band has said before that they are inspired by other bands such as Queen, The Rolling Stones, and Def Leppard, so if […]
