After 4.5 years together, I have never dragged my boyfriend to a metal show, despite it being a frequent pass time of my college years.

…Continued from Brand New: Anthology Vol. I If the first half of Brand New’s career is what brought them into the public eye, then it was the second half that elevated them into the conversation of of being one of indie-rock’s greatest new millennium bands.  While Your Favorite Weapon and Deja Entendu saw them master the art of pop-punk/pop-rock, […]

(ostensibly a review of Listen Out, 24/9.) I had to ask myself yesterday: ‘Why?’ I was curious; stood inch deep in the quagmire, sniffling, giggling, losing my hair, losing my mind, and damn near losing my patience with the gurning bastard stood next to me, pestering me for a piece of Wrigley’s so he didn’t […]

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. Life-long friendships have dissolved, I’ve potentially been at the heart of intense pain for more than a few, and my own state of existence is being called into a flickering, wavering contention between worth and […]

  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 […]
