ACL Day 2 starts with me arriving at 12:30, determined to see some of Frances Forever‘s act before heading to the press lounge to write. I made it for the very end of their set, so I got to watch them perform from a distance. Frances Forever’s name was displayed in a 1970’s-inspired font on […]

The first day of ACL was my first time going at all, so I took longer than anticipated parking/getting in/etc. However, when I walked in around 2:30 I was pleasantly surprised by the low hum of energy already coursing through the park. I walked past the Honda stage where jxdn was welcoming a girl from […]

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 […]

The University of Houston held it’s annual Glow Party event in Lynn Eusan park on Thursday, August 26, and it was worth the hype. The student organization leaders started getting to work around 6:45, setting up mountains of glow stick necklaces, glasses, and bunny ears on tables around the park. Pizza, soda, and waters got […]

Are you ready to relive summer, love, and heartbreak with Frank Ocean’s channel ORANGE? Frank Ocean’s 2012 album, channel ORANGE, captures the sickly sweet, tape-recorder nostalgia of summer so exquisitely that I’ve always wanted to do a track-by-track analysis. This album played a huge part in my summer, too. I had good days–beach days, nights […]

With his creative lyrics, dedication to small labels, and collaborations with producers such as Madlib, it’s no surprise his influence extends even to artists such as […]

Despite lacking the mainstream fanfare that surrounded more recent releases in the genre, Julien Baker has created the magnum opus of the indie-folk singer-songwriter moment with Little Oblivions. Characterized by her trademark dynamic vocals and incisive lyricism, adding interesting production and larger instrumentation, Little Oblivions tells tales of relapse and self-loathing, and the cycle that […]

  It was a great night at the White Oak Music Hall this Monday (03.02.2020). Molly Burch and her accompanying musician, Michael Toliver (piano) and Thom Washburn (drums), was wonderful. They were washed over by applauds of fanfare as they walked on stage with Molly receiving a compliment on her outfit after she introduced herself. […]

As part of Coog Radio, I got the chance to go and see YBN Cordae on his first-ever tour through Houston, and I have to admit, I wish I could go back. The lost boy came to Houston and found a family in his fans. The first thing that I feel like I should mention […]
