By Samuel Carliner On Friday, February 22 I saw Julia Holter at Warsaw. This was a PopGun presents show. Warsaw was one of the most intimate venues I’ve been to which was a great setting for the type of music Julia Holter makes. The opener was Jessica Moss who set the tone by playing the […]

By Brian Lange The band that is Never Going Back to New Jersey played their first show of 2019 at Sayreville’s Starland Ballroom on February 22nd. Less Than Jake are certainly not newcomers to the venue, having performed there countless times in their 27-year history, and are not a tired appearance either. Opening the show […]

by Mike Stringham On Saturday, January 19th I saw Mineral at Elsewhere in Brooklyn. This show was another PopGun Presents show at their lovely new-ish venue Elsewhere. It was a rainy and snowy night and I was supposed to work until 5pm. That was fine, because Mineral was slated to go on at 8:45pm. Well, […]

by Evan Dekens When St. Vincent’s Masseduction was released last year, critics and fans alike were puzzled. Annie Clark, the art rock patron saint who, in 2015 rose from indie obscurity and into the relative mainstream with her self-titled album St. Vincent, has always thrived on an identity of transformation. Annie Clark, who once graced […]

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 […]
