Vinyl .vs. Digital: Is there a difference?

I think any music fan can honestly say that they love a good vinyl, but then they would bring up their Spotify Premium playlist in the car. There has been a never-ending discussion regarding vinyls and their superiority to digital music in the world, and in my mind it started after the “hipster” became popular…

Band Watch: Parisian

I found Parisian on Spotify. I heard a very sweet song and I though “Wow. Who is this?” and I fell into a music hole for about 3 days. I listened to him non-stop and added him to every single playlist possible. THE BAND Parisian is a one-man band with a man named Jeremy Fowler…

Band Watch: Shapes & Colors

I found Shapes & Colors about a year ago, but never took the time to really dive into their music, but this past week I found myself going down a YouTube and Spotify spiral, and Shapes & Colors was one of the primary artists that I explored. THE BAND Shapes & Colors is based in…

Top 5: Emarosa

I discovered Emarosa in late 2016 and now they are one of my favorite bands. After watching them on tour with Pierce the Veil and Sum 41, I knew right away that I wanted to do a Top 5: Emarosa, where I discuss the some of my favorite songs and why you should listen to…

Hit or Hate: “Ghost” by Normandie

Normandie is a new band I have been exploring. Their newest song “Ghost” was featured on my Spotify Discover page, and I decided to give it a shot. Normandie is a post-hardcore rock band from Sweden, the band is composed of three men Philip Strand – Vocals, Håkan Almbladh – Guitar, Jesper Malmberg – Drums….

Fast 5: June

“Fast 5” is a new segment where I compile five songs that I found and liked from each month. It’s a short blog post where there’s music that I would recommend to anybody. Nothing lengthy, just music. 1. Hard to Love by ONE OK ROCK 2. Drugs and Candy by All Time Low 3. Find…

Halsey ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’

The rebellious and legendary musician Halsey came out with her sophomore album, hopeless fountain kingdom, on June 2 and it was filled with surprises. As someone who has been a fan for a while now, I was in utter suspense and I even stayed up past 3 A.M. to listen to the album as much…

Hit or Hate: “Brother” by Kodaline

After a few years of no music, Kodaline has come back big. Their new song “Brother” exceeded my expectations and every part of the song makes me more and more excited for what’s to come. I fell in love with Kodaline – an alternative/folk/rock band from Ireland – when they came out with In A…

Sound Showdown: Imagine Dragons

On June 23, 2017 Imagine Dragons released their new album Evolve. Instead of doing a basic review, I decided to put two songs against each other to ultimately come out with a winner. The winner wins basically nothing, but I earn the satisfaction of finally deciding which tune I like more. Imagine Dragons came into…

Top 5: Coldplay

As a die-hard Coldplay fan, I’m surprised I haven’t made a full post about them before on this blog. I believe they are one of the only bests who have successfully been consistent with their music and have earned their high praise and acclimation in all the right ways. Not to mention, the lead singer,…

Top 5: The 1975

The 1975 took the world by storm in 2014/2015 and they haven’t stopped making their mark since. After a very successful self-titled album, they released I Like It When You Sleep, for You Are So Beautiful yet So Unaware of It (which is a mouthful, but surprisingly satisfying as an album title). I personally have…

I Actually Like Country Music

Every time someone requests country music in the car, another person always objects. They either say “EW!” or “Why do you like it?” I for one, am a fan of country music, and I personally believe that most people don’t give it a chance. (This is respectable though because everyone has their own (preferences). I…
