Artist Showcase: Laura Sjin

I’d been sitting on this one for a while, so I’m glad I finally get to share. I don’t listen to a lot of Dutch music (or any at all, really) but I happened to be introduced to Laura Sjin by my roommate (who’s actually her cousin wow). The first song that I listened to […]

Artist Showcase: Hobo Johnson

Once again, YouTube’s baffling recommendation algorithm has delivered a musical gem into my lap for me to share. Frank Lopes— better known as Hobo Johnson— is a Sacramento based hip-hop artist. In his own words, he makes “‘nice’ hip-hop.” But hip-hop is not the first thing that comes to mind when I listen to Hobo […]

Song of the Week 14

“On My Teeth” Underoath I’ve been wanting to cover this song since I heard it last week, not only because the reunion of Underoath is monumental, but because this song is great. “On My Teeth” is the first single off of Underoath’s highly, highly anticipated upcoming reunion album Erase Me. This is the first music the band […]

Song of the Week 13

“Voice” AIRFLIP I was stoked when I heard last week that AIRFLIP were getting ready to release their sophomore album in march. Now, the trouble with AIRFLIP is that because they’re not very well-known, you can’t really get their music outside of Japan. They have their EP’s on their Bandcamp, but not their debut (or […]

Song of the Week 12

“Real Man” The East Light As someone who has a soft spot for pre-2010’s Kpop, it’s often hard for me to open up to some new Kpop groups—especially if they’re young. Part of the fun of Kpop is getting to ogle pretty Kpop stars, but that’s a little weird when the average age of the […]

Song of the Week 11

“Neverland” by Holland First of all, let me apologize for being a WEEK LATE on this song and for not posting for two weeks whoops. I’ve wanted to write about it since the day it came out, but life’s been hard. I decided to cover this not so much because I like the song, but because […]

Throwback Thursday 6

“What’s My Age Again?” Today’s throwback Thursday is a request from my roommate (which she suggested after I began mumbling about not having any inspiration). Blink-182 are like an old friend to me—reliable and always a regular part of my musical diet. They’re sorta mainstream, which is probably why I’d never thought to include them […]

Song of the Week 10

“Andrew in Drag” The Magnetic Fields Today’s SOTW is a song I discovered, once again, through a cover. The Magnetic Fields’ quirky “Andrew in Drag” is the single off of their 2012 album Love at the Bottom of the Sea. The track is, quite simply, about a man who falls instantly in love with Andrew in […]

Throwback Thursday 5

“Marta Tiene un Marcapasos” Hombres G Today’s Throwback Thursday is a spinoff of this week’s SOTW (which sent me down a rabbithole). “Marta Tiene un Marcapasos” [“Martha Has a Pacemaker”] is the single off of Hombres G’s sophomore album La Cagaste… Burt Lancaster [literally, You Shit on it…Burt Lancaster, but more like, You Fucked Up… Burt Lancaster].  The lyrics […]

Song of the Week 9

“El Ataque de las Chicas Cocodrilo” Aleks Syntek ft. David Summers One of my favorite things about being home for winter break is that I can watch LATV, which is like Mexican MTV (when MTV actually played music videos). I love watching it because you truly have no idea what they’re going to play. Sure […]
