    Revisiting Jay-Z's '4:44': La La...No, Wait

    In classic Shawn Carter fashion, it has been almost four months since the release of his thirteenth studio album, 4:44, and we're still talking about it.

    Oughton Tanera's 'Leave the Marked Path' Album Review

    Oughton Tanera's 'Leave the Marked Path' Album Review

    It seems this album is about a conflicting relationship where one person is leaving and the other person is holding on for dear life. It is very inspirational, telling the audience that, despite the ups and down of life, there is always something to hold on to and it will be worth it in the end. A spectacular listen! I hope to hear more music coming soon from Oughton Tanera. I would rate this album 8.5/10!

    'The Spark' Isn't Enter Shikari's Worst Album

    On September 22nd, 2017, Enter Shikari released their most ambitious and personal album ever, The Spark. However, many of the dedicated fans seem to think that The Spark is the end, worst album ever, going to end their career, and I am here to prove those doubters wrong!

    Rodney DeCroo: Old Tenement Man

    Rodney DeCroo: Old Tenement Man

    For a non-believer, one of the strangest stories in the Bible has to be that of Jacob wrestling with God. For those who aren’t familiar with the story, God, interestingly, lost the fight, but was able to dislocate Jacob’s hip, causing Jacob to limp for the rest of his life. What doesn’t kill you doesn’t necessarily make you stronger. Some wounds last forever, and for those who have been deeply scarred, healing is the work of a lifetime.

    An Album Comparison

    An Album Comparison

    I first discovered the folk opera Hadestown a couple of years ago when I was researching the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, one of the favorites, and found that there was a concept album based on this story. The album was available for listening on YouTube and I was instantly obsessed. Unlike your typical concept album, there are different singers playing the different characters in the story. It feels like the cast recording of a musical and my first thought was that there should be a stage production. Sure enough, there was one in New York but it came and went before I had the chance to see it. So I looked up everything I could find of the production online which was tantalizingly little. Then it was announced a few months ago that a cast recording was to be released and I quickly pre-ordered it off of iTunes and waited for the whole thing to be available with a track released every few weeks to wet my appetite.

    Some Americana Soul from Demetrius N Vince

    Some Americana Soul from Demetrius N Vince

    I love learning about where bands get their starts and when I find out they get their start in a way I support whole-heartedly, it makes me thrilled. For Demetrius N Vince, their way of meeting one another was through a local open mic night. I am a huge supporter of open mic nights in my hometown and have seen how they’ve helped launch new bands and brought musicians together to create amazing things. Open mic nights, here anyway, are where many venues find the talent they’ll book and pay when they want live music.
