Music Monday - Jayhawks - Paging Mr. Proust

August 01, 2016 | Music

The Jayhawks are no spring chickens. Founded in 1985 in the twin cities, the band has cycled through members through its over thirty years of life, toured the country, changed labels and even gone on soul-searching hiatuses. But this April, the Jayhawks returned with their ninth studio album, Paging Mr. Proust by Thirty Tigers Records. For the uninitiated, the Jayhawks tend to be labeled as “alt country” or sometimes just indie. Other than held guitar twangs and fiddle interludes, I wouldn’t qui…

Music Monday - Dirty Heads - Self-titled

June 28, 2016 | Music

Considering this is Dirty Heads’ fourth album, self-titling this record does sort of seem like a promise, or at the very least, a return. Two years ago Dirty Heads released Sound of Change, which was arguably a departure from their well-established vibe. What’s their vibe? Well, for the uninitiated, Dirty Heads formed in 2003 and now tours with Sublime, Rome, and Tribal Seeds among others. So, taking that into account, it’s a fresh cup of SoCal in the morning! "With this album you can expect the…

Pierce the Veil - Misadventures

May 16, 2016 | Music

For this Music Monday, we’ve got a special review! Pierce the Veil’s Misadventures released three days ago, and we got our hands on the gorgeous vinyl! As it is, we're complete suckers for marbled vinyl. The candy-red and white label combined with the hand-drawn cover is just yummy. Mmm. Marble-y. There are times that you need to simply harness the energy of intense feelings. If there’s any band to do it, it’s Pierce the Veil. I first came across them when they toured with All Time Low back in …

Music Monday - Beach House - Depression Cherry

May 02, 2016 | Music

Hello, Monday! It's the first Monday in May, and I'm still shaking the flowers out of my hair from Mayday. It's only appropriate then that today I'm listening to Beach House's dreamy 2015 album, Depression Cherry. Following 2012's Bloom, and before Thank Your Lucky Stars, also from 2015, Depression Cherry is not really an anomaly in Beach House's discography as much as it is an exploration. Bloom had a few tracks that had strains of synthesizers and trance underpinnings, but was still overall a …

Music Monday - Beck - Morning Phase

April 18, 2016 | Music

Good morning! To be fair, we’re still a bit groggy from Record Store Day. (The party lasts a while and we’re in brewing country, don’t judge us.) For sleepy Monday mornings, it seems completely appropriate to spin Beck’s 2014 album, Morning Phase. If you compare Morning Phase to, say, Modern Guilt from 2014, you’ll notice there’s a distinct lack of electric guitar, exchanged instead for gentle acoustic. It's not entirely unheard of for Beck- Morning Phase's spiritual sibling, 2002's Sea Change- …
