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- …

How Big, How Bold, How Beautiful - Florence and the Machine

March 28, 2016 | Music

Even years after the triumphant Ceremonials, you couldn’t turn a stone over without hearing the soulful sound of Florence Welch belting out Dog Days one more time. It was rise of flower crowns and fire dances, and always brings to me images of the wide Australian sky filled with fading sparks. Still, it’s been four years since then, and after letting the Marina and the Diamonds of the world have a bit of the spotlight, autumn goddess Florence returns in a wave of crisp leaves and soaring vocals.…

Music Monday - Bon Iver - Bon Iver

February 26, 2016 | Music

In a pretty open contrast to last week’s review, today’s album feels very autumny to me! There’s something about the gentle plucking of acoustic guitar strings and the warm lull of brass always makes me think of orange leaves and cold concrete. Let’s flip the lid on this album! The self-titled album is not frontman Justin Vernon’s first foray into music. The second album of Vernon’s solo project sought to be a departure from his previous work, so he brought in collaborators from different backgr…
