By Sam Flowers   On Friday, February 22nd, Julia Holter performed a concert at Warsaw. A Popgun show presented Julia Holter. The venue really went well with the aesthetic. Julia Holter’s genre of music is Art pop baroque pop ambient, which had gone perfectly with the venue. She had a violinist to open her show […]

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 […]

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 […]

Classic Album Review by Yazmenne Archer Three words. Princess of R&B. Gone but never forgotten, Aaliyah Haughton was a gem to this world and though she is no longer with us, she gave the music industry and this world a sound like no other. At the tender age of 15, she was singing with the […]

Reviewed by Thomas Lichtman Khruangbin is an American indie trio hailing from Houston, Texas. They play a variety of mostly instrumental songs with influences ranging from psychedelia, funk and world music. Their songs vary from slow and melancholy to funky, upbeat jams. The use of jazzy guitars, groovy basslines, and a strong backbeat are the […]

Review by Yazmenne Archer We love summer undoubtedly with its balmy days and sweet nights and the same can be said for the pleasantly unexpected artist, Summer Walker, who graced us with her chilling yet calming voice. As a singer, songwriter, and producer, Walker has proclaimed herself a one woman show as well as with […]

Reviewed by Luke Winnicki When Telefone was released in 2016, it marked a high-water point for the jazzy, spoken-word style of Chicago Alt-Rap. The floodgates were opened by Chance the Rapper’s breakout Acid Rap in 2013, but the scene waited with baited breath for the culmination of the style, which Noname executed beautifully. The record was child-like yet concise, […]

Reviewed by Jenn Duffy One of 2018’s newest current growing artists to look out for is 21-year-old Chelsea Cutler. In June 2018, Cutler released her debut albumSleeping With Roses. If you are into honest and raw lyrics about the ups and downs of love, then you should give this album a listen. Cutler’s soft voice […]

Reviewed by Stacy Fernandez Queen by Nicki Minaj has definitely set the bar high for many hip hop artists. She proved to the world that she is the queen of bars and of a successful comeback with this album. She shows the world her creativity while also talking about the struggle she overcame these past few […]

Reviewed by Dan Livingston Regarded as one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time, A Tribe Called Quest’s Low End Theory stormed the early 1990’s rap scene with its unique, alternative, and jazzy sound. Releasing only a little over a year from the previous album People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, the hip group built […]

  By Mike Stringham On Thursday, November 8th I made my way out to Brooklyn Bazaar after work to see a screamo show with .gif from god (​giffromgod.bandcamp.com​) from Richmond, Virginia headlining. This band shares members with another great screamo band from the same town, Ostraca (​ostraca.bandcamp.com​) – who I’ve seen a bunch of times […]

 By Mike Stringham The Mercury Program Concert Review by Mike Stringham On Thursday, November 15th I saw The Mercury Program (themercuryprogram.bandcamp.com) at Brooklyn Bazaar. It happened to snow half a foot that afternoon/night and I was working until 8pm. All my coworkers said not to go because it was too dangerous (the roads were terrible), […]

Rumors (1977) by Fleetwood Mac Reviewed by Sam Givone Arguably Fleetwood Mac’s best album, Rumors, was released February 4th, 1977. The lyrics of the album are known to have been shaped primarily around relationship problems between the band members. Members were Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, Christine McVie, John McVie, and Lindsey Buckingham. Sprinkle some drugs into the songwriting […]
