The Twilight Saga: Album Review

By Gilian Prado Music Journalist The year was 2008. Musically we are in the center of the post-punk revival, with the likes of The Strokes, Vampire Weekend, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, LCD Soundsystem, Franz Ferdinand and The White Stripes. Indie rock is in its golden age, and the soundtrack of a film franchise, specifically the first three Twilight films, reflected that. While the Twilight films themselves were made for a target […]

Album Review: A Lighter Shade of Blue by Christina Perri

By Christina Sims Music Journalist Christina Perri is a singer-songwriter that constantly stuns, a musician who has had several hits over her career. “Jar of Hearts” from Perri’s debut Lovestrong launched her into stardom more than a decade ago, while “Human” from her follow up Head or Heart in 2014 became a hit as well. None of her songs had nearly as much impact as “A Thousand Years” from the final movie in The Twilight […]

Album Review: Flo Milli’s “You Still Here, Ho?”

By Andrea Moor Music Journalist Over the years, I’ve enjoyed listening to Alabama rapper Tamia Monique Carter, otherwise known as Flo Milli. To say that she possesses star-worthy talent is an understatement. Her influence has been evident since her early SoundCloud days. Thanks to TikTok, the 22-year-old has been able to consistently draw attention to her releases for the last couple of years. It’s been pleasing to witness her develop […]

Maggie Rogers: Surrender Album Review

Sofia Gualy Music Journalist Maggie Rogers has done it again, and this time in a way that can be described as freeing and enchanting. Rogers expresses her experiences and emotions in a manner that not many modern artists do. She sings of angst and wanting to break free, emotions that many young adults face. Her sophomore album, Surrender is chock full of incredible vocals, passionate lyricism and the conjuring of […]

Concert Review: M(h)aol at The Lord Kingsale in Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland

 Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director   If you frequent Austin, TX near Red River, you may be familiar with the iridescent sticker pasted throughout the streets reading “GHOST A POST-PUNK BOY TODAY.” I became familiar with this motto - and began practicing it myself – when I realized the connection between a band my professor recommended that I see while studying abroad in Cork, Ireland. I now own a tote […]

Album Review: Florist by Florist

Clara Blankenship Music Journalist   As summer winds down and busy schedules begin, I am left with mixed feelings. There is a beauty in a season ending, how the Earth shapeshifts in a stunning yet melancholy way. Florist’s self-titled album release gorgeously captures this natural dissonance. Florist, a project consisting of Emily Sprague, Jonnie Baker, and Rick Spataro, released their 4th album on July 29. The self-titled work clocks in at an […]

Joey Bada$$: 2000 Album Review

Chizobam Okeke Music Journalist It has been a long five-year wait for the kid from Flatbush to release another album, but it is finally here! On July 22, 2022, Joey Bada$$ dropped his third studio album, 2000. I’m sure that all over the world, hip-hop fans were curious about what the next step for Joey would be after he blessed us with his critically acclaimed, breakthrough mixtape, 1999, ten years ago. The New […]

Charlie Hickey: Nervous At Night Album Review

Ashley Farnie Assistant Music Director I think I’ve been procrastinating putting my thoughts into words regarding this album because of the self-reflection it forces me into. Its eerie proximity to the life of 20-something-year-olds in whatever era of the world we want to categorize this as exhibits Charlie’s intentional and direct lyricism. His hyperawareness of his mental state and the ability to transcribe his feelings into words supplies our generation […]
