Bitter Rivals by Sleigh Bells

The duo of Derek Miller and Alexis Krauss formed in New York about five years ago as an experimental pop duo. Miller had been in a hardcore band and relocated from Florida to New York to start a new project. He found a good pairing with Krauss who had been a vocalist in a teen […]

Rap God by Eminem (Explicit)

I know some of you probably find Eminem pretty obnoxious, but I must say he is an extremely talented artist. His ability to rhyme is definitely something to admire, esp. in the hip-hop scene today where many hip-hop artist sound like one another and aren’t very original with their songs. Artist these days tend to […]

Black Skinhead by Kanye West (explicit)

Oh Kanye, how you’ve evolved over time and for the most part, not for the better. I’m not even going to get started on Kanye the person, so I’ll just focus on his musical output. I loved early Kanye. His production work with Jay Z was excellent, and then when he started making solo albums […]

Retrograde by James Blake

James comes to us from England where he has been making music since he was a young boy. Initially he was studying to become a classic pianist, until he was exposed to electronic dance music by a friend. Upon fist hearing this genre, James fell in love and changed his whole musical style to fit […]

A Life They Wrote by Save Ends

“A Life They Wrote”– features guitars more than keyboards, but is a somewhat slower tempo track for the band. The song starts off with some nice guitar before the rest of the band kicks in. Christine starts first on the vocals, before Brendan pipes in. They trade verses before coming together for the chorus. The […]

Poetic Justice by Kendrick Lamar ft. Drake

I couldn’t remember if I have dropped a song by Kendrick or not, but I was almost positive that I dropped a song or two in which he had been featured on. It was slightly difficult to find an appropriate song of his to share with all of you, not to mention for me to […]

Skeptical Sons / Curious Daughters by Save Ends

The music that Save Ends plays sounds like what I what describe as “raucous pop”. It’s catchy, but has enough aggressiveness in it to maintain a little edginess. I think the main draw for this five piece is the lead vocal interplay shared by Christine Atturio and Brendan Cahill. Their voices sound great when singing […]

Thanks to these 3 releases, she was asked to appear on the 5th season of the singing competition Nashville Star; she finished 7th in the competition. Thanks to the exposure on […]

Give Me Love By Ed Sheeran

I’ve been a fan of Ed Sheeran since early 2010 when I stumbled on a EP of his. Ed comes to us from London, where he is pretty well known. He burst on to the US scene in 2011 with his debut album “+”. Prior to his debut album Ed had released 5 EPs on […]

About Farewell by Alela Diane

Mellow music and mellow vocals are not typical elements in the music I listen to. Somehow, Alela Diane has found a way to make these elements interesting to me. I find her vocals soothing, and she pairs her muted guitar playing nicely with her music. Her new album titled “About Farewell” is her fourth release […]
