Remembering the Beastie Boys

It’s coming up on 8 months since the death of Adam “MCA” Yauch, member of one of the best hip-hop groups of all time, the Beastie Boys. Now that some time has past, I’m able to reflect with a clear mind (and not cry) on how much the Beastie Boys were part of my life … Continue reading

I know everyone is sick of year end lists, but I am posting my top 25 favorite albums of 2012 merely for my satisfaction. These lists help me look back on what I listened to in the past, also what awesome music I may have missed that I discovered later on and didn’t include. It basically serves as a … Continue reading

Dragons of Zynth/Ava Luna/The Mast – December 20, 2012, Glasslands Gallery, Brooklyn New York

I recently read about an interview with David Sitek from TV on the Radio, who griped that a lot of indie bands come to Brooklyn simply to attract media attention and obtain recording contracts rather than cultivate a musical aesthetic relative to the influences present in the scene.

The Smashing Pumpkins @ Susquehanna Bank Center 12/08/12 Camden, NJ

There’s something about The Smashing Pumpkins that gets me all nostalgic. It’s not just the familiar songs, it’s Billy Corgan’s voice.  I can close my eyes when he’s singing and remember a feeling of an awesome time in my life. If you were a teenager or young adult in the 90’s, Pumpkins fan or not, … Continue reading

15 Questions with Mylets

If you haven’t heard Mylets yet, the best way I could describe his sound would be to smash together WU LYF with Sharks Keep Moving and add a touch of Maps & Atlases. I discovered the blissful chaos that is Mylets randomly one day on the internet and upon first listen of his latest EP 타락한  (Korean for “Morally Corrupt”) … Continue reading

Sabrina Loves Alternative Metal

I’m not a metal head, I’m a rock chick,  but Alternative Metal is dear to me.  The genre emerged & gained popularity in the 90’s and by the 2000’s it was everywhere.  You couldn’t go to a festival or a radio rock concert without seeing bands like Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Seether & Chevelle.   A decade later … Continue reading
