San Marcos Coffee Shops as Songs

By Madisen GummerMusic Journalist One of the many unique and lovely things about San Marcos are all of its independent coffee shops. They each have their own environment, energy and regulars that make up its niche community. They all also thrive year round (perks of being located in a college town). You can almost encapsulate the auras of each one of these places in a song. Jo’s Cafe: “Hey Joe” […]

Lana Del Rey: Norman F*****g Rockwell! Album Review

By Madisen GummerMusic Journalist Norman F*****g Rockwell! (NFR!) is the sixth studio album and poetic masterpiece from Lana Del Rey. The fourteen track record, released on Aug. 30, 2019, yet again tiptoes the outskirts of mainstream music while bringing something fresh yet still remaining in the true essence of “Lana Del Rey.” There are echoes of storylines and musical intricacies from her first couple albums within this record, but overall […]

Beach Fossils Show Review

By Madisen Gummer Music Journalist Beach Fossils sound like spring, and Tuesday, April 23 they brought their warm and dreamy melodies to Mohawk in Austin to begin their US tour. I was personally excited for this show because not only am I a big fan of the headliners, but also the two openers. Why Bonnie graced the stage with a perfect mix of eloquence and grunge. Their set included some […]
