“The ends not near, it’s here…” Round Up

…Hallelujah! Spread the cheer. Lots of great music came out this year but I didn’t listen to enough of it to warrant a “Best Of” list, so here are some toe-tapping choons from 2014 that aren’t necessarily the best the year had to offer, but they’re not too shabby either. Here we gooooooo… Vince Staples […]

End of Summer Round Up

SUMMER IS OVER. DEAL WITH IT. Foxygen – How Can You Really If the new Foxygen single is any indication, we’re in for a more stripped down sort of nostalgia in Foxygen…And Star Power. Deviating from the band’s last hippie-dippie acid fest album, aptly named We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic, […]

Interview: Heems @ XXX, Hong Kong

Queens rapper Himanshu Suri, better known as Heems of Das Racist and founder of Greedhead Music, is currently embarked on a tour around Asia. Luckily, I got a chance to catch his performance at XXX in Hong Kong (Jan 17, 2014) and ask him some questions about touring Asia, his new projects, and his thoughts […]

The 100 Best Songs of 2013

It’s time to count down the best (my favorite) songs of 2013. It was, as always, a great year for music and it’s probably the most diverse list I’ve made so far. Enjoy, and let me know what I missed.   Note: Songs that are on the Best of 2012 list, such as “Latch” and […]

A Look Back: The 100 Best Songs of 2012

It’s time for another list. Looking back on 2012’s plethora of music, it is really amazing how much good material came out. This list was nearly impossible for me to rank and I must have made around 100 revisions. 2012 provided an embarrassment of riches, and really, I think all of these songs are phenomenal…this […]

November Round Up: Music I’m Thankful For This Month

Hey party people, HAPPY TURKEY DAY! Here’s a list of tunes to check out while you recover from the itis.   Bombadil – Escalators/What Does It Mean My favorite musical discovery this year is Bombadil, the North Carolina folk-pop band (presumably) named after Tom Bombadil, jolly wanderer of Middle Earth. Their 2013 release Metrics of […]

What You May Have Missed Fall 2013

2013 has been a terrific year for alternative rock and independent music.  Smash albums have come out of nowhere, reclusive seminal groups have been re-emerging like cicadas to release their first new albums in decades: Dismemberment Plan, 12 years; Mazzy Star, 17 years: My Bloody Valentine, 22 years; and some records haven’t met the hype. […]

October Round Up

The other day, I noticed that I was wearing wool socks in my room. Huh, peculiar. Then I step out the next morning to find a rotting pumpkin in front of my dorm. Okay, weird. Then I walk around campus and all I see are indecent trees, gradually shedding their outerwear. In the next coming […]

A Look Back: The 100 Best Songs of 2011

As we get closer to counting down the Best Songs of 2013, I figured it would be helpful to have the past couple years as a reference point (plus, who doesn’t love lists). The Best Songs of 2012 will be out shortly, but in the meantime, I’ve ranked the Best Songs of 2011 (in my […]
