Caveman: Smash Album Review

By Shack Khoza Music Journalist "Sparkling Electronic Pop Music" is the perfect way to describe the album Smash by Caveman. This album is created for those who love to lay down in their bedroom and mindlessly withdraw from reality into their own fantasy world.

Sturgill Simpson: The Ballad of Dood and Juanita Album Review

By Olivo Castillo Music Journalist For the longest time when someone asked me “what kind of music do you listen to?” my go-to answer was “pretty much anything but country.” That changed once I discovered Sturgill Simpson. The Ballad of Dood and Juanita is the latest release from the modern-day country outlaw, released via the High Top Mountain label on Aug. 20, 2021. The most exciting part about a new […]

Donda’s Release was a Bizzare Journey

By Jared Dudley Music Journalist Kanye West is a person who knows how to get attention. Of course, this has been evident for over a decade. From interrupting Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech at MTV’s Video Music Awards in 2009, to making a meteoric impact on the fashion industry, few artists have grab headlines like West. Even among his peers of bombastic rappers, West has always stood out. Rising stars and […]

Cleopatrick: Bummer Album Review

By Christian Villarreal Music Journalist Rock music has gone through many changes and has adopted several subgenres since its creation, but rock music itself has been relatively unchanged. Cleopatrick has set their minds to breaking the mold surrounding rock music and is renovating the rock genre altogether with their debut album Bummer. Fuzzy guitar riffs and catchy beats are the least that the Canadian Rock-duo Cleopatrick can do. The band released […]

Post Animal: When I Think Of You In A Castle Album Review

By Maddy LehrMusic Journalist Psychedelic rock comes in so many different forms, and that is something I really love about the genre. The six-piece Chicago-based band, Post Animal, is a perfect representation of this. They have released quite a bit of heavy psychedelic rock tunes, but expect some prog rock and even power pop as well.  Post Animal’s debut album, When I Think Of You In A Castle, shows off their […]

How To Produce an Incomplete Album

By Shack KhozaMusic Journalist Tasteless indie soft rock is what I would describe this insignificant album called, Coming Into Beauty by the quartet group, The Mommyheads. This skippable 15-track album is a huge example of how to produce an album that has incoherent lyrics, unmemorable melodies, and horrible chord progressions, not to mention, some instruments are out of tune. This album (“mixtape” more like) is created for those who find […]
