"Make it Better" by Anderson .Paak Review
Anderson .Paak is an artist that can do no wrong in my eyes. Whenever I do an Anderson .Paak review, I end up gushing emphatically for about 600 words, and for good reason. Sonically, he’s pleasing to listen to whether rapping, singing, or just talking honestly. The bridging of funk, R&B, soul, hip hop/rap (and gospel influences) allows him to create tracks that are incredibly pleasing to listen to, before even listening to the lyrics themselves. Enter his latest album, Ventura, released in mid-...

Dive Back into the 90s with the Offspring
Who doesn’t love to hear the nostalgic rhythm of the drums with the increasing guitar and bass riff that represents the punk era of the 90s? There are certain songs that when you hear it, you can remember a particular moment in time and space that is embedded in your memory that you totally forgot you even had that experience. "Gotta Get Away" is a nostalgic song for many age groups, including myself, a 20 year old female who grew up with a twin brother who loved all things music. This song brin...

Twice "FANCY" MV Review
I’m not gonna lie: upon my first listen to this song, I was not a fan. Being one who has a bit of trouble stepping into the turbulent waters of girl k-pop idol groups (essentially resisting it if at all possible), I have been fairly tentative with Twice from the very beginning. Their early work was not impressive to me at first. It just sounded like over-produced, super sweet, bubble-gum pop—and that’s something I’ve never been a big fan of, no matter what music I’m listening to. I mean, Twice i...

Shortie: "Tints" Analysis
At first glance, "Tints" is a song about keeping a low profile while getting some head from a girl in the driver’s seat. But when you take a look at the video, and listen a bit more to the lyrics, it’s about much more than that. Rather, it's about all of the things people hide. Let’s dive deeper. The first single from Anderson .Paak’s Oxnard dropped on October 4, 2018, followed by an incredibly colorful and vibrant music video. Anderson commented on his writing process and ideas behind the track...
