Although it will inevitably frustrate non-fans of Brand New, especially in the midst of incessant discussion surrounding the group’s finale Science Fiction, there is no better time to reflect back upon one of the most important indie-rock bands of the new millennium.  I say it not as a hyperbolic exaggeration designed to garner interest, but just for […]

What I Learnt from a Cat Named Virtute September 2017 is a time of great change and uncertainty for me.

  Editorial Note: This was originally written and posted as five separate album reviews.  It functions as a retrospective and a discography review.  Link to Matt Aspinwall’s side of the split: https://bandcamp.com/download?id=2141216390&ts=1504398671.1591462948&tsig=2dbe75dc5beab0611396d08fe9aa5dbc&type=album The Brave Little Abacus is hard to pin down. They were eclectic, energetic, experimental, odd, off putting, and above all else, they were remarkable. […]


There’s been a lot already said about the latest Taylor Swift single from critics and fans, and not a lot of it has to do with the actual music.  There’s been drama expounded upon and personality quirks analyzed, but I unfortunately keep as many tabs on celebrity feuds and lifestyle happenings as I do my […]

It’s not like we needed any additional reasons to crown Ella as the queen of pop.  At just 20 years old, she’s stolen that crown from Ariana who stole it from Carle Rae who stole it from Taylor.  Well, that’s if you ask me. But personal and irrelevant opinions aside about who owns pop (when it’s […]


Public Enemy… what can be said about them that shouldn’t already be known? They’re one of the most influential Hip Hop artists of the 80’s and early 90’s, due in large part to being one of the first Hip Hop groups to really focus on politics, and the plight of African Americans in general. Their […]


Anyone on this site is, by now, well aware of my affinity for melodically-inclined music.  There’s just something effortless and uplifting about songs that don’t require you to completely submerge yourself within them – and dedicate considerable time and emotional resources to – in order to understand.  That isn’t to say that I haven’t spent tons of time […]
