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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Albums as Narratives: Preacher’s Daughter by Ethel Cain

Clara Blankenship Music Journalist When I first heard Ethel Cain’s album Preacher’s Daughter, I was underwhelmed. Do not get me wrong, I recognized how gorgeous it was, but I felt I was missing the point of connection. I found a Fader podcast interview with her on Spotify a few weeks ago that came out after her release. I relistened to the album afterwards, and my experience completely changed.  Ethel Cain is […]

Harry Styles Album Review: Harry’s House

Ashley Farnie Music Director The topic of artists shifting genres throughout their musical careers is a polarizing argument. The artist is accused of “abandoning their roots” or becoming molded by the mass media, without their personal autonomy considered. Regardless of the verdict, this recurrent issue questions the validity of our categorization of artists within genres.   Should we evaluate each album as independent, taking a sort of new critical literary […]

Bleachers: Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night Album Review

By Sofia Gualy Music Journalist Music mogul Jack Antonoff and his band, Bleachers, created one of my favorite albums of 2021. After a quick run with his previously successful band Fun, Antonoff began his project with Bleachers in 2014. These New Jersey natives have created some of the most popular indie-pop songs of the 2010s and are continuing to create massive hits in the 2020s.  Take the Sadness Out of […]

Beach House: Once Twice Melody Album Review

By Clara Blankenship Music Journalist I am always torn on what to listen to on a long drive. A playlist, maybe? An album? On a recent drive home, I decided to shuffle the New Releases playlist on Spotify, hoping to find some fresh music. A new Beach House album began playing, and I was immediately taken on a wonderful musical journey that, thankfully, livened up the usually dull drive on […]

Ada Lea:one hand on the steering wheel the other sewing a garden Album Review

By Shack Khoza Music Journalist "Expressive Indie Rock" are the perfect words to describe this amazing album titled one hand on the steering wheel the other sewing a garden by singer/songwriter Ada Lea. This album is for those who are more invested in lyrics and listening comprehension than the music or instrumentals. Every song in this 11-track album more than tells tales or stories. They illustrate narratives about remorse, resentment, and regret, […]

Cornelius’ Fantasma: A Journey of Colors

By Victor Guevara Music Journalist After a usual night of scrolling through the YouTube recommended page, I stumbled upon a bright orange-colored album with the title of Fantasma. With it instantly catching my eye, I clicked and was taken on a journey through different worlds and colors. Initially released on Aug. 6, 1997, and reissued in 2016, the third studio album by Japanese musician, Cornelius, is as fresh as ever. The […]
