Ouroboros by Ray LaMontagne

If you had told me a week ago I’d be featuring the latest album titled “Ouroboros” from Ray LaMontagne, I would have likely responded that you must have mistaken me for someone else.  I had heard a little bit of LaMontagne here and there, he’s shown up on various soundtracks from TV and motion pictures […]

‘Never forget you’ by Zara Larsson

I just recently heard this song this morning; I fell in love with it.  I feel as if it’s a more of a contemporary/techno song, but it sounds so good.  Both of the artists have amazing voices and know how to range their tones.  It’s really talking about how a happy couple’s relationship ended.  The […]

A sailor’s guide to earth by Sturgill Simpson

Sturgill Simpson, in my opinion, is currently the most exciting artist in the country music periphery.  Granted, I’m not a big country music fan but there are a few artists I like to listen to.  There are two things I admire most about Simpson – 1) his vocals – he has a classic country sound […]

More Rain (Favorites) by M. Ward

M. Ward, based out of Portland, OR, released his 8th studio album this month titled “More Rain”.  His music brings a West Coast vibe to an Americana-influenced sound.  Listening to his albums is like pulling a nice warm blanket over yourself and settling in on a rainy day.  His guitar playing is exceptional and understated […]

Fifth Harmony – Work from Home ft. Ty Dolla $ign

Great bass line on this track, no doubt. Catchy beat carries the lyrics on this fun track. The video is nothing short of eye candy for the ladies. It is pretty simple to get lost in the beat and forget about the lyrics. The message visually is that the lead vocalist is in charge. Fifth […]

‘Needed me” by Rihanna

This is one of my favorite songs by Rihanna personally. I have listened to this song over and over again and mentally connected with the song.  My mind focuses just so much on her voice when she’s singing.  She shows that he was on the low with her and playing with her heart.  She just […]

G Eazy in Reno, NV

G Eazy Concert Review April 9th, Reno Events Center ​My grandma bought me and a homegirl a ticket to go for my birthday with my step sister and her boyfriend. We showed up at the Events Center at 6:30 to get in line for the doors to open at 7. The line was backed up […]

Do You Remember by Jarryd James

Jarryd comes to us from Australia, where he began playing in a band called Holland in 2012. The band recorded a debut album, but it was never released and this led Jarryd to fall into depression and quit making music. In late 2014, he was asked to accompany some friends on a tour as their […]

My love is cool (Favorites) by Wolf Alice

I’m tapping into another London-based band this week, not all-female but led by a female vocalist.  Wolf Alice formed back in 2010 as a duo and released an EP, but grew to their current quartet in 2012.  The band released a number of singles before releasing an EP in 2013 which got a lot of […]

Adore Life (Favorites) by Savages

London quartet Savages played their first show 4 years ago.  Since then the all-female post-punk band released some singles then a much acclaimed 2013 album titled “Silence Yourself”.  The band immediately garnered a lot of buzz through their singles and their raucous live performances at high visibility shows including CMJ Music Marathon in NY and […]
