This October was a big month for new music releases. Carly Rae Jepsen’s The Loneliest Time is one of the most notable albums. Jepsen’s sixth studio album is not only one of Jepsen’s best, but the best pop album of the year. The album takes visual inspiration from folk or western aesthetics, but is still […]

Austin City Limits made its 2022 return with its first weekend on Oct. 7-Oct. 9. W1 was a major success and featured some fantastic performances from huge artists, as well as lesser-known artists and local bands from Austin. Day One: ALL THE STARS The festival started really strong on its first day with great performances […]

Rising pop star Rina Sawayama released her second studio album Hold The Girl on Sept. 16, and it was the tiniest bit of a disappointment, although not all of it. Sawayama, who is known for catchy songs about capitalism and family problems, set out to make her album different than the rest of her discography. […]

Some say festival season is only in the spring. But the live musical capital knows no limits on when a music festival should be.

*Warning: This article contains minor spoilers for the new film Morbius. Read at your own discretion.* When I first watched Morbius, I was pleasantly surprised. I won’t get into all of my Morbius opinions because this isn’t a film review. However, I will say that one of my favorite parts of the film was its’ […]

A few weeks ago was the annual music festival, South By South West (SXSW), in Austin, Texas. Austin is sometimes known as the live music capital of the world, but Austin has also changed a lot in the past few years. A lot of people think that the changes happening to the city have also […]

A few weeks ago, critically acclaimed artist, Mitski, released her sixth studio album, Laurel Hell. As a big Mitski fan, I’ll admit, when the singles for the album came out, I was a little skeptical of the new album. The songs weren’t bad. They were just different and not exactly her best work. However, after […]

I’ll be honest: while I knew of Orville Peck, I did not listen to him or know his music until I watched season 2 of HBO’s Euphoria. I know, that makes me what some would consider a fake fan, but at least I’m admitting it! Orville Peck’s Pony has been on repeat for me the […]

Twee is a counterculture and subgenre of indie-pop that is categorized as “excessively or affectedly quaint, pretty, or sentimental.” While it originated in the 1980s, it also had a revival in the late 2000s and early 2010s. Recently on Tik Tok, people have been anticipating another Twee revival, and like any good counterculture, it is […]

It’s New Years Eve, and ’tis is the (end of the) season for listening to Christmas music! Here are (in my opinion!) the best pop/contemporary Christmas albums: The Kacey Musgraves Christmas Show by Kacey Musgraves This second Christmas album by Kacey Musgraves is only better than her first, A Very Kacey Christmas, because it includes […]

The month of November has come to an end, and December only means it will get colder. Here is a list of albums to help you embrace the winter spirit. Ella Fitzgerald Sings The George And Ira Gershwin Song Book by Ella Fitzgerald Jazz is one of my favorite genres of music to listen to. […]

On October 14, singer-songwriter SZA announced a set of shows that will happen throughout November. She described the shows as “not being a tour,” but rather “intimate performances” she would play in a few cities. One of her stops was in Houston at Warehouse Live and I immediately got tickets, which was such a good […]

Fall is right around the corner and we’re ready for it! Here are five albums to listen to for any occasion — whether it’s driving somewhere, hanging out with friends, or simply just staying home. Teens Of Denial by Car Seat Headrest This album is the perfect example of a good coming-of-age/dark academia indie rock […]

Following the release of their sophomore album, Blood Bunny, Chloe Moriondo is going on tour and stopping in Houston, TX this November! Moriondo, based in Detroit, got their start by posting covers on YouTube at the age of 13. Some of their most popular covers include Edith Piafs’ “La Vie En Rose” and Rex Orange […]

After four long years since her last album, Lorde’s highly-anticipated Solar Power was released. The album follows Melodrama, an album that many including myself would consider a masterpiece. The album, unfortunately, does not quite live up to the anticipation.  Solar Power is a very different album than its predecessor. Melodrama was, in some ways, a […]
