Written by: Conor Battles Album: Starboy Artist: The Weeknd Label: XO Rating: Photo courtesy of Heavy.com The most immediately noticeable thing about Starboy, the third studio album from Toronto’s eminent alt-R&B lothario The Weeknd, is that Abél Tesfaye has no interest in dwelling on the past. The brooding, tenebrous dirges of Trilogy have been replaced […]

Scribed by Erin Keller #JOANNE   At last, Lady Gaga has returned to the mainstream pop scene. Mother Monster’s middle name Joanne serves as the title of the singer’s newest album since 2013’s Artpop, an album that was a bit disappointing to millennials who bumped The Fame Monster on middle school bus rides. Gaga then […]

Scribed by: Conor Battles Album: ‘Revolution Radio’ Record Label: Reprise Release Date: October 7th Rating: Photo Courtesy of warnerbrosrecords.com It’s not punk, it’s not political and it’s not anything we haven’t heard a million times before from Green Day. Since their impetus in the early days of West Coast pop-punk, Green Day have done what […]

A look into The Front Bottoms’ Past Scribed by: Maggie Sugg photo courtesy of: http://img2-ak.lst.fm/i/u/ar0/97b4731cf90f75ead4cfb95870b7d575 I would deem myself a pretty big Front Bottoms fan.
