June 22nd, marked the twenty year anniversary of the release of Liz Phair’s explosive debut album Exile in Guyville. Let’s celebrate by remembering what a compilation it was in its most natural state, a record that not only helped launch other female rockers, but without a doubt left an impression on many young women growing … Continue reading

Local Music Scenes Are Dying

Your local music scene may be a dying art form, and in a few more years could become a completely outdated musical platform.  Blame it on reality TV, social media outlets ,or yourself. Up until about 5 + years ago there was a general sense of anticipation and excitement in checking out a new band … Continue reading

Record Review: Colleen Green – Sock it to Me

Move over Liz Phair and Belly, well from my CD collection anyway. Colleen Green is taking over. Compared to the other Pop_Rock Queens of the past, Green’s vocals are whispier than Phair’s (much like Belly), but both share the monotone style. She also rocks the guitar with the similar heavy distortion as her predecessors. However, … Continue reading

Record Review: Shout Out Louds – Optica

I’ve got my big hair on, my fluorescent spandex ensemble, and my rubber bracelets. The year is 2013, but when I listen to Shout Out Louds it’s the 1980’s all over again and that makes me very happy.  I am going to get on my 80’s kick and I’m going to enjoy it.  It is … Continue reading

Record Review: Sleep Lady – So Long Lonely Ghost

“The soundtrack you never heard to a movie that was never made about people you never met.” This is what you find in the “about” section on Sleep Lady’s Facebook page and it couldn’t be more fitting. Sleep Lady is a 5 piece, (mostly) instrumental post-rock / metal dream pop band from San Diego, CA. The band was … Continue reading

Dave Grohl, Sound City, and Foo Fighters

Ok, I’ve held out long enough; Dave Grohl has been in music news pretty much daily for the past few months and now I am warranted to let loose on the subject without sounding monotonous just because I love the man.  There’s been a gush of headlines beginning with the Foo Fighters announcing in October … Continue reading

Twenty | One | Pilots

About two weeks ago I discovered Twenty One Pilots, while stumbling across their video for “Guns for Hands” I was captivated by the duo, Tyler Joseph (vocals, piano, programming) and Josh Dun (drums, percussion, programming) who radiated artistic peculiarity.  I immediately searched for more, discovering the single “Holding Onto You”  I was smitten and my … Continue reading

The Power of Adele

While most of us for the past 2 years have lived a somewhat mundane life of work with the occasional awesome moments, Adele’s 21 has ruled the Billboard as best selling Album.  You heard right, for the first time the same album finishes as the United States’ best-seller for a second year. I fell head over heels for … Continue reading

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

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
