‘The Bastards’ by Palaye Royale [Album Review]

This is one of those albums that I went into expecting to like it, especially after hearing the singles leading up to it, but for whatever reason didn’t expect it to be as good as it is. I’m genuinely floored by how much I enjoyed this album–it went beyond what I could have imagined from […]

‘Petals For Armor’ by Hayley Williams [Album Review]

I know I had my misgivings about this album coming out because so much had been released before hand but here we are, talking about it anyway because I feel like it. Plus, there are five new tracks to look at so at least there’s something new to dig into. Obviously I won’t be talking […]

‘Freckle Season’ by Orla Gartland [EP Review]

The first things that surprised me about learning to play guitar was how it changed the way I listened to music. Sure, I’d always been aware that there was guitar in songs but I didn’t truly listen to the instrument until I had a basic idea of how it worked. This goes for other instruments […]

‘A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships’ by The 1975 [Album Review]

So we were supposed to have a new album from The 1975 by now but it’s been pushed so many times that I’m more ready for it to come out of nowhere than for it to come out on the day they say it will. So as we wait–for many albums, not just from this […]

‘Gigaton’ by Pearl Jam [Album Review]

I feel like I need to preface this with the statement that I love Pearl Jam. Like, Lightning Bolt is one of my favourite albums of all time and Ten was one of the first albums I ever bought. So I was pretty excited to have some new music from them… I just… it’s not… […]

‘Under Exit Lights’ by Sea Girls [EP Review]

My first thought on hearing this album was that it had a very summery feel to it–probably because of all the synths mixed with that indie pop atmosphere. Now, look, I don’t mean to drag any genre of music because everyone has different tastes. I’ve had to explain my own taste in music enough times […]

‘Order in Decline’ by Sum 41 [Album Review]

Alright, so I know of Sum 41, I think we’ve all heard In Too Deep in a teen-movie soundtrack at some point in our lives, but I’ve never sat down and listen to a whole album by them until this one. It was an album I had heard a few things about near the end […]

The Vespids [Musician Spotlight]

When I’m listening to random playlists on Spotify and I think “who is this?” and have to stop what I’m doing, I know that I’ve stumbled across a band or artist that could be my new obsession. After having one of these experiences, I introduce you to The Vespids. This might be my favourite band […]

‘Not Your Kind’ by Hoity-Toity [EP Review]

Full disclosure: this is a band that I had never heard of before they followed me on Twitter after I posted my artist spotlight of Forever Emerald. I thought it would be a nice way of saying thanks just to go listen to their music. However, I’m choosing to write a whole post of their […]

Musician Spotlight | Madrona

I think one of the things that makes me the saddest about this band is that they haven’t made enough songs yet. I’m usually super behind when it comes to enjoying bands (I only recently had something click in my brain that made me realise how awesome Twenty One Pilots are) so this is weird […]
