The death of an artist can send shockwaves throughout the entire music industry. Casual listeners rush to their music, while A&R’s rush to sign similar artists. After the premature death of Brooklyn drill superstar Pop Smoke, Staten Island’s own CJ has quickly risen to prominence. He set the internet on fire last summer with his electrifying single “WHOOPTY,” a raucous drill song that managed to find an audience despite drill flooding the hip-hop industry. But while “WHOOPTY” did break through all the noise, his new EP, “Loyalty Over Royalty,” struggles to deliver those same highs, and ultimately left me disappointed.Continue reading
If you use Spotify, Tiktok, or just listen to the radio, by now you’ve heard the song “Can I Call You Tonight” by Dayglow. I got to chat with the artist, Sloan Struble, about his new music, album, and his plans for the future. I’m not sure what I was expecting but he was more warm and welcoming than I would’ve imagined and just plain cool. We got to go into detail on his two recently released singles (“Close to You” and “Something”) as well as his new album Harmony House, which comes out May 21st. Sloan talked about his musical and professional growth, as well as his intentions for the new album and what he hopes listeners will take away from it. We also got to talk about his life and what it’s been like as a musician/person during this craziness we’re all living through. I can’t wait to hear the new album and experience all the effort Sloan’s put into it!Continue reading
Warning: WandaVision spoilers ahead.
If you’ve seen Disney+’s latest Marvel show WandaVision, then I am sure you are familiar with the plot-revealing song that made its debut at the end of the seventh episode, “Breaking the Fourth Wall.” “Agatha All Along” confirmed many fan theories that the nosy neighbor Agnes, played by Kathryn Hahn, was actually Agatha Harkness, a witch who survived the Salem Witch Trials. Although some were shocked by this revelation, most viewers were more entertained by the unique musical number that explained this major plotline than the actual plotline itself.Continue reading
It all started in the summer of 2009. Famed Latin pop star Shakira released the music video for her single “She Wolf,” a song that talks about letting out the inner wolf during the nighttime. Back then, I didn’t think much of the message behind Shakira’s lyricism. Innocently, I thought she was talking about transforming into an actual wolf. However, almost 12 years later, I can’t help but to think–Is Shakira a furry?Continue reading
You may not know his name, but you definitely know his music. K Camp, the artist behind some of the biggest dance crazes and party anthems, has dropped Kiss 5, a deluxe version of his star-studded R&B album “for the ladies” (as he likes to say). After the huge success of “Lottery (Renegade)”, K Camp has slowly been receiving the attention he deserves as a versatile artist in both the hip-hop and R&B worlds. He’s been working non-stop: dropping new freestyles, new projects, and even starting his own clothing brand.Continue reading
The legendary Queen: one band, accompanied by one audience, playing as one entity. Whether you were playing Queen’s record in your college dorm room, listening along to their songs on the radio, or front row at the famous Live AID benefit concert, there was no doubt that you were singing along at the top of your lungs and forgetting about all of life’s responsibilities. Queen’s music had a certain enchantment that engulfed any person within listening distance- especially the iconic 1977 album: News Of the World.Continue reading
If you’ve never heard gay rock music, there’s no better place to start than Fleece. Montreal based Fleece is made up of Matt, Megan, Ethan, and Jameson. Their ethereal tone is enough to make you feel warm inside — if it’s ever safe to leave my house again, this is what I imagine myself driving into the city with.
When I sat down with them last week, they were welcoming and funny. They were so welcoming and funny that it was almost too difficult to edit the interview. Everything they said felt too important to cut, sort of like an inside joke we were all apart of. Their introspective look at their creative process and openness about their growth was refreshing. Interviews like this are one of the few things that are getting me through this weird, perpetual purgatory that we’re all living in. It only took us two Zoom calls and twice the amount of time we planned for, but we did it. You can watch the full thing below.
