Growing up on so many different genres of music has had a major impact on me and who I am. As I’ve gotten older, I find myself revisiting artists and albums I was once too young to relate to and understand. One group of artists that have worked their way into my life is Three 6 Mafia. Memories of their haunting beats and the hits…

2013 was a great year for hip-hop. With many new artists from the blog era of rap dropping thought provoking projects and albums that people still talk about to this day. Action Bronson, a rapper from New York whose music first caught my attention after his verse on the incredible posse cut from ASAP Rocky’s debut album, Long. Live. ASAP. …

In 2017, Phil Elverum released an album called A Crow Looked At Me, under his Mount Eerie moniker. It was released shortly after the death of his wife, and it becomes clear less than a minute into the record that its creation served as therapy for Elverum to process and grieve her passing. It consists mostly of nothing but Elverum’s voice and his acoustic guitar, inviting listeners to…

Much like the punk and new-wave that broke out of rock music in the late ’70s and early ’80s, the 2010’s saw a massive shift in the sound and feeling of rap music. …

Many artists have always been apart of my life no matter what was my main genre at the time. Mariah Carey has been one who’s released countless classic songs that have highlighted her incredible voice and her ability to keep up with the times no matter the switch up.

The Emancipation of Mimi was an album that had one of the best rollouts I can…


Young people will always dictate what’s cool. That’s been a tried-and-true statement for decades; since there were things to be talked about, the age fifteen-to-twenty-five demographic has controlled how ad executives, industry plants, and past-their-prime influencers make every decision. It was the youth who made The Beatles and Michael Jackson godlike figures, and young people were at the center of all great musical countercultures: whether it was hippies, punks, or hip-hop heads. …

Many bands have been responsible for my love of rock music. Fall Out Boy being one of them. Probably my first real exposure to pop punk music in the mainstream, Fall Out Boy was a band full of energy with lyrics and song titles like no other band in their genre. …


Pop music as a genre is unique. Every other category of music is defined by one or more shared characteristics; the guitar licks of the blues, the improvisation and instruments of jazz, the, well, rapping of rap. You can hear any of those qualities in a song and immediately know that you’re listening to a certain genre, which is something you can’t do with pop music. Pop is short for popular: it’s literally whatever sound is trendiest at the time. …

There’s so much I could say about the band known as Dance Gavin Dance. My favorite band since I was 16, this band has been a major staple in my life and I’ve made it a mission of mine to tell everyone who loves rock about them.

Mothership was an album that was released kind of as a surprise to me considering they just dropped…
