Album Review: The Flaming Lips – Oczy Mlody

December 30, 2016 | 0 Comments

The description for Flaming Lips’ latest experimental album Oczy Mlody is a mouthful in and of itself: A record in the style of both rock group Pink Floyd’s found Syd Barrett and modern rapper A$AP Rocky, combining their psychedelic styles into one obviously Flaming Lips sounding arrangement, on top of a concept about a party...

The new collaborative release, Gentlewoman, Ruby Man, by Flo Morrissey and Matthew E. White is one that is not easy to classify. The pair draw from styles as vast as the world we live in; it is an eclectic blend of the American stylings of Matthew E. White and the English indie vibes of Flo...

Album Review: Faith Hill – Deep Tracks

December 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

The reigning queen of country music has a knack for finding a way into the hearts of her global fanbase. It is a warmer and deeper intention, however, that has her latest record reflect on the lesser known gems not previously released as singles. Deep Tracks is a shining collection of Faith’s eloquent and versatile...

Album Review: Austra – Future Politics

December 28, 2016 | 0 Comments

Enduring long into their third record lay an enlightening soundscape filled with rebirth and pulsing life – plucked from cultures stretching into clubs, literature, life messages and unbridled rhythm. We thank Austra for the riding experience amidst their Future Politics album. The album’s ascent drifts into a silky atmosphere tipped with soft synth work and...

For an artist that has been so hugely influential, Kid Cudi has always seemed to exist somewhat outside of the hip-hop scene. 808’s & Heartbreak wouldn’t exist without him, and by extension, neither would Drake and the entire R&B/rap crossover genre that exists today. However, it’d be a surprise if Cudi ever featured on a...

With a career spanning about 67 years, and more success finding its way to him even as he reaches 90, there’s no denying that Tony Bennett is a true image of success. As such, a televised special celebrating his birthday milestone makes perfect sense. Artists of all varieties, collaborators and otherwise, all came together to...

Album Review: deadmau5 – W:/2016ALBUM/

December 26, 2016 | 0 Comments

Since his first studio album released just over ten years ago, Canadian-born Joel Zimmerman has advanced and engineered the rapid process of electronic dance music perhaps more so than any other conventional dance music musician. Melody spills from the core of his eighth studio record distinguishably titled W:/2016ALBUM/ in reference to a long-lasting trend of...

Back in the holiday season of 2015, Kylie Minogue released her first Christmas album, Kylie Christmas; a 13 track selection of holiday classics and original material from Minogue, and her first spin on the seasonal album bandwagon. She’s taking another stab at it for 2016, though, but rather than releasing a new Christmas album, 2015’s...

There’s an inherent dichotomy to the Dropkick Murphys, between the emotions the band’s sound naturally conjures, and the actual artistic aspirations the band seems to have. Their “celtic punk” style tends to be so raucous and energetic that it’s easy to get swept away in its theatrics. It sounds like drinking music, but 11 Short...

Album Review: Code Orange – Forever

December 22, 2016 | 0 Comments

At first it can seem like Code Orange make messy music. They are sold as a metalcore band, but rarely do they manage to stay within the confines of that genre for more than a minute at a time. What makes the band special and unique is that they take a style and sound that...

For a good chunk of his career, Pete Doherty was better known for his escapades and substance abuse issues than for his creative endeavours, with his relationship with model, Kate Moss, fueling the popular media’s interest in his antics. In early 2015, it was announced that Doherty had successfully completed a stint in rehab, and...

Donald Glover’s music as Childish Gambino has always been somewhat of an oddity, when compared to his otherwise spotless career. Glover is generally masterful at everything he does, be it comic acting, stand-up comedy, or with his new show Atlanta, creating a world of multi-faceted characters. There’s always been a depth and likability to his...
