Madonna Is…’Madame X’

Dinosaur Pile-Up - 'Celebrity Mansions' Album Review
At a certain point you get old, and suddenly, you are not up to date on new music, so it's rare when a new band (new to me at least) releases an album that makes an impact on me. Hailing from Leeds, England, Dinosaur Pile-Up is that band, formed in 2007 from the ashes of singer Matt Bigland's previous band, Mother Vulpine. Their influences are clear to hear, and from Nirvana, Foo Fighters & Weezer, they've taken that 90s grunge and early 00s alt rock and given it a modern polish. Celebrity Mansi...

Tyler, the Creator - 'IGOR': Worst to Best
Before we get to it this is obviously just some random dude off the internet's opinion. It's a good one, but it ain't the one. It's also not that serious, chill out, live a little.

Beast Coast: Escape From New York
Escape from New York dropped on May 24th, 2019 and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. I have one lingering question about Beast Coast that I want to discuss before getting into my review. I’m wondering why there aren’t more Pro Era members in Beast Coast and specifically why CJ, NYCK, Kirk, Joey and Pow P on production, were the members were placed in the collective for this project. I understand that Pro Era has like 15 people in it, so having all members on the album would overcrowd the ...

Madeon - "All My Friends"
To most people who have never indulged in the house music scene, the name Madeon means absolutely nothing. To me, it’s a glorified name which makes my heart race, my stomach flutter, and my spirits so...

Beyonce 'Homecoming' Documentary
Beyonce’s Homecoming is just another pin on her jacket. Homecoming to me was a unification ceremony in a musical and cultural sense. It was meant to be a collection of all that Beyonce was and will be...

31st of May 1988: 'Down in the Groove' by Bob Dylan Was Released
Recorded between 1983 and 1987, Down in the Groove is an often forgotten Dylan album, purely because it isn't really like the other albums of the 1980s for him. It has its own character and that chara...
