    Eric Frisch’s Music Makes You Want To Keep Listening 'Late In The Night'

    Eric Frisch’s Music Makes You Want To Keep Listening 'Late In The Night'

    Eric Frisch is a talented artist, kind of a singer/songwriter if you would. He is an acclaimed NYC musician, and his music lies in the indie pop genre, although I found it to be less on the pop side than what I would normally equate with pop music. This is no “Justin Timberlake Top 40” music. Frisch’s music has a vintage feel to it, something that will make you reminiscent of the pop sounds of the 50s and 60s. You might even hear a little influence from The Beatles in there (or I did anyway).

    'The College Dropout' Review

    'The College Dropout' Review

    Before I was put on to this album by my friend Jay (Jimmy), R.I.P.; I had heard very little from Kanye (Like most everyone else at the time). After hearing the album for the first time I had concluded that Mr. West wasn’t just a good rapper and a great producer, but he was going to be in the game for a long time.

    Only A Visitor Makes Amazing Music

    Only A Visitor Makes Amazing Music

    From Vancouver to LA, Only A Visitor is a band that is going places. One of the places they’ve recently been found is in my heart. I am in love with this band. There isn’t a song on this album I don’t like. There isn’t a thing about their music that doesn’t make me happy to listen to it, over and over again.

    Pharoahe Monch: "Internal Affairs" Review

    Pharoahe Monch: "Internal Affairs" Review

    "This is, what you, get when, you fuck, with the, likes of, the magnanimous flow, of total assholes, and ignoramuses, M.O.P., slash Pharoahe Monch cause damages, the advantage is we banish artists, labels, and managers, amateurs found six feet deep in metal canisters."

    The Thrill of Discovery Challenge

    The Thrill of Discovery Challenge

    There's something to be said about discovering new things on your own. When someone tells you to check something out, and you enjoy it, it's nothing compared to how you feel when you're discovering it without any point of reference.

    Sluka's 'Colorful Radiation' Is a Treat

    Sluka's 'Colorful Radiation' Is a Treat

    Enthralling and visionary are a couple of good words to describe the music and talent of Christopher Sluka. Colorful Radiation isn’t his first rodeo when it comes to releasing an album. He’s done it 11 times. Obviously, someone likes his music or how would he afford to keep putting out so much music?

    Death Grips: 'Bottomless Pit' Review

    Death Grips: 'Bottomless Pit' Review

    I remember being so excited for this album last year. I had become a huge Death Grips fan by that point, and rarely, if ever, went a single day without listening to one of their records; but for those of you who don't know, allow me to bring you up to speed.

    Review: Vince Staples 'Big Fish Theory'

    Review: Vince Staples 'Big Fish Theory'

    Big Fish Theory is one of the examples of the evolution and diversity of hip-hop. The album is something that your average hip-hop fan might not be compelled to listen at first but they should. The production of the album is different and innovative. In combination with the wittiness and intelligence of the bars of Vince Staples it makes for an amazing project. Big Fish Theory proves that you can make great music without trying to fit into one specific genre or approval of your peers.
