Below, you will find must-have songs […]

With the announcement of BTS’s hiatus, the seven members entered a period as official solo artists. Kim Namjoon, known by his stage name RM, was the third to have his solo debut with Indigo on December 2, 2022.

As we all know, Spotify stops gathering users’ listening data October 31st so their people can present us with our Christmas presents on December 1st: the long-awaited Spotify Wrapped.

Sometimes you’ll listen to a new song on the radio and feel a sense of nostalgia, almost as if you’ve heard the song before. Turns out, the new song probably sampled a R&B hit from the 2000s.  Sampling involves taking a snippet from an older song from genres such as funk, disco, soul, etc., and […]

There’s a running joke in my friend group that I listen to the same two artists every day: Radiohead and Taylor Swift. Despite this accurate assessment (insert an eye roll here), I think I have a fairly decent taste in music. Here are six songs I haven’t been able to stop listening to since fall […]

November 8 marks the four-year anniversary of FKA Twigs‘ Magdalene. Although four years is a relatively short amount of time, the album had such a large impact upon its release that one could believe it is much older.  FKA Twigs’ sophomore album, Magdalene, showcases an experimental approach to pop and classic club beats. The album’s […]

The Beatles not much can be said about the legendary band that hasn’t been said before. They are the musical blueprint for successive generations.

If you enjoy listening to relaxing music during your study sessions, you might be familiar with Lofi Girl. Even if you don’t listen to Lofi Girl, you are probably familiar with the lo-fi aesthetic of an anime girl sitting at a desk studying next to a window with a cat. Lofi Girl is a phenomenon […]

Indubitably one of the best bands to listen to while “spooky season” commences, The Cramps provide the best soundtrack to go with the pumpkin and spiderweb décor. In 1972, Erick Purkhiser and Kristy Wallace formed the iconic psychobilly punk rock band. Later they took the stage names, Lux Interior and Poison Ivy. While they fell […]

Many of us had an “emo” phase in middle school. Whether we told our parents “it’s not just a phase” or not, I never really grew out of the music. As I’ve been into pop punk and “emo” music again recently, I’ve compiled my all-time favorite songs of the scene. Additionally, with the When We […]

If you’re anything like me, you can’t stand silence. Even while studying, you have to have something to listen to, whether it’s music or just white noise. Still, it can be hard to find the right music for studying, something that’s both sonically pleasing and not too distracting. If you’re looking for something like this […]

The 90’s and early 2000’s were full of girl power and gorgeous harmonies provided by memorable groups such as Destiny’s Child, TLC, The Spice Girls, and more. However, the recent boom in the Eastern K-Pop market has made it glaringly obvious that the West barely has any girl groups to keep up with demand, and […]

A good playlist consists of a diverse variety of sounds, an element of surprise, and flows together well. It is the act of creating a concept through a mix of lyrics and sounds from a variety of artists. Playlists can convey a certain mood, keep your music organized, or you can send it to someone […]
