Album Review: Lady Gaga, ARTPOP

Album Review: Lady Gaga, ARTPOP

[ 0 ] November 11, 2013 |

Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP hit the shelves today, always the trendsetter she went against the industry standard of releasing records on Tuesday.  Much like her last record, 2011’s Born This Way, this is not a record that instantly wins you over. She challenges her listeners lyrically and sonically, to say nothing of her image. She adds […]

CD Review: Panic! At The Disco – Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die

[ 0 ] October 8, 2013 |

“This is gospel for the fallen ones…” These eight little words open Panic at the Disco’s new album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die, out today, and sets the tone for the record while easing fans into the sonically dark record with a song that’s reminiscent of 2011’s Vices and Virtues. From there […]

CD Review: Ministry – From Beer to Eternity

[ 0 ] September 10, 2013 |

By Ellen Eldridge   Calling the thirteenth Ministry release schizophrenic implies that Jourgensen’s work isn’t grounded in reality. From the chaotic beats and frenzied samples to the intermittent bursts from Jourgensen himself, From Beer to Eternity sounds off about the world. From the astounded “Holy cow!” introducing “Hail to His Majesty (Peasants)” through “Punch in […]

Album Review: King Khan And The Shrines “Idle No More”

[ 0 ] September 3, 2013 |

By: Rosie Judd Arish Ahmad Khan, aka King Khan, brings us a more grown-up version of his garage-rock with Idle No More. The 8th full-length album from The Shrines is delightfully sprinkled with funk and punk overtones that make the garage-psychedelic melodies that much more entertaining. The opener “Born To Die” begins with a fuzzy […]

Album Review: O’Brother’s ‘Disillusion’

[ 0 ] August 20, 2013 |

By: Shelby Lum Many bands find it difficult to cross the threshold of genre. Atlanta based, O’Brother, don’t. Their album, “Disillusion,” brings in seemingly different forces of music to blend and contour a specifically niche sound. The album opens with “Come Into the Divide,” leading the record with peaceful vocals and a howling background. The […]

Album Review: Wesley Cook- “Heavy”- Drops August 3rd!

[ 0 ] July 25, 2013 |

By Rosie Judd Wesley Cook is a familiar voice in the Athens and Atlanta music scene. His soon-to-be released “Heavy” offers more of his acoustic driven, lyrical pop music that is heavily steeped in deep emotions. Cook guides the listener on an emotional journey through loss, love and hope without coming off as overly sappy […]

[ 0 ] July 15, 2013 |

By Molly Segers Matt Nathanson’s, Last of the Great Pretenders, his eighth studio album, packs all of the acoustic love songs, visual lyrics, sprinkled with dancy moments we’ve come to love and expect from him and polishes it up into a crisp classic pop record, complete with some handclaps and “ooh-oohs”. All of this comes […]

Album Review: Mikal Cronin- MCII; Released 5/7!

[ 0 ] May 8, 2013 |

Album Review by Rosie Judd This record almost snuck past me. A friend recommended it to me 2 days before it came out, with the preface that I would fall in love with it, even though I couldn’t own it yet. They were right. I knew nothing about Mikal Cronin. I didn’t know that he […]

Album Review: Born Ruffians’ “Birthmarks”

[ 0 ] April 16, 2013 |

By: Shelby Lum To begin. Birthmarks is completely infectious. Singer, Luke Lalonde’s vocals have some factor that just will not leave your head, and make you wonder why Born Ruffians has never made it onto your favorites playlist. Really though, how has this not happened yet? You will hear “Needles” once, and need to listen […]
