Album Review: the secret to life by FIZZ

Michael Ybarra Music Journalist The time has come for the waking world to acknowledge Fizzville, a whimsical dimension created by the European band FIZZ. After they pushed their debut release back a full six weeks, their album did not disappoint. The singles prior, including up-tempo tracks like “As Good As It Gets” and “High In Brighton”, perfectly encapsulates the overall message of the album. However, the full release gives listeners […]

Album Review: 1989 (Taylor’s Version) by Taylor Swift

Blaire Bussey Music Journalist When I recall my first memory of listening to a Taylor Swift song, I already knew the lyrics. Every day on the way to kindergarten, I listened to “Picture to Burn” and screamed it at the top of my lungs for my mother’s entertainment. I must have been listening to Swift’s music before I memorized my mom’s phone number or knew what a phone was. However, […]

Album Review: Negro Swan by Blood Orange

Jarris Jones  Music Journalist As we get older, we look for people we can relate to, gain inspiration from and flat-out admire. Most of the people I deem worthy of admiration come from their ability to touch my soul with their music, make me dance or let out emotions I thought no one else understood. At seventeen years old, I thought my music catalog was already top-notch. I thought I […]

Thomas Stevens Rap/Hip-hop Journalist We have been holding our breath with anticipation while also gaining patience for this album. Jayson Mick Jenkins, a conscious hip-hop artist based on the southside of Chicago, Illinois, returned with his fifth album, “The Patience,” on Aug. 18. I believe the last time we spoke about Mr. Jenkins was before this album was released, regarding his first album, “The Waters." If you did not enjoy […]

Album Review: VOIRE DIRE by Earl Sweatshirt & The Alchemist

By Jarris Jones  Music Journalist 2023 has been a great year for rap music, releases from Travis Scott, Lil Yachty, Tyler The Creator, Teezo Touchdown, Veeze, and LUCKI just to name a few, have been blasted in my headphones. As the year comes to an end, I thought big releases were over and any new projects from the artists I listen to frequently would be held off until next year, […]

Album Spotlight: four years of IGOR

By Jarris Jones Music Journalist   Igor, Igor, Igor… The only thing I associated the word Igor with was the 2008 animated horror film, but the word Igor would end up having a much greater meaning to me. Tyler, The Creator, released his fifth studio album on May 16, 2019, and at the time of its release, I was in my final weeks of high school. With my acceptance to […]
