Torres-Three Futures

5/7 Released September 9/29/2017 Mackenzie Scott AKA TORRES followed the exact same formula for this record, Three Futures as she did on her previous Sprinter; same studio, same producer (PJ Harvey’s longtime producer as well). But she took things a lot further on TF, her overall sound is more cohesive, ...


Pitchfork Music Festival Review

The lineup at this year's Pitchfork Music Festival was impressive to say the least and important to say the most. Past lineups have been solid, (Sufjan Stevens in 2016 was the greatest thing to happen) but they have been mainly white indie boy bands. This year there were significantly more rap, R&B, ...


Artists You Shouldn't Miss At Pitchfork

The lineup this year at Pitchfork is probably one of the best I’ve seen (last year’s was pretty darn good too). Solange, Cherry Glazerr, Mitski, A Tribe Called Quest, Angel Olsen just to name a few.

The title track "Vroom Vroom" presented Charli in a new light, veering away from ...



6/7 Released 02/03/2017 Process is the debut studio album from Sampha. His feature on Solange’s A Seat At The Table track, “Don’t Touch My Hair” was a sort of an informal introduction to the British singer for the masses. He’s worked as a producer for other artists such as Drake and FKA ...


Playlist For Your Post-Election Feelings

I know these are trying times for all of us, and things seem to be going down the drain, but music has always been able to express thoughts and feelings we aren't able to on our own. These are the songs that have been playing as my soundtrack this past week--explaining my mood better than I can in ...
