Share This.Let’s hope for an Indian summer because Mikal Cronin’s MCII  is for sunshine times and kites. Put this album on and feel wistful about the days getting shorter, and know you are not alone. Because MC is singing to you, everything will be okay. Mikal Cronin’s second album is a foray into a more poppy sound, as well as a clearer and more vocal-centric style than his first album, Read More

Share This.I have never been so happy to sweat so profusely in a smelly basement as I was last weekend when I saw Solo Sexx, a Massachusetts-based female rap duo, perform at the Cantab Lounge in Central Square in Cambridge. I felt so empowered by their spirited performance that by the end of their set, I was ready to tear off my bra and burn it right there on the Read More

Share This.Unknown Mortal Orchestra’s sophomore record, II, is in no rush. It feels like an idle Sunday–the kind we waste walking around the neighborhood, dazed and coffee-hungry, allowing hours to fluidly pass and the sun to glide across the sky. UMO gave us more of what we loved from their self-titled debut album: hooks, falsetto, fuzz, and a little bit of the strange, while exploring sounds only touched upon previously. Read More

Share This.For someone who has lived in New England her entire life, I find it surprisingly easy to connect with the lyrics of Surfer Blood‘s first album Astro Coast (“If you’re movin’ out to the west/Then you’d better learn how to surf” and “Swim to reach the end,” to name a few), a reaction that is well-described by the German phrase Sehnsucht. The term refers to a specific type of Read More

Share This.Remember rock? Those gritty, raw chords that defined America in the later half of the 20th century and gave parents one more thing to warn their children against? Rock music gave all of us—even our parents, even the whitest and most middle class of us—some understanding of angst and revolt. Hanni El Khatib’s sophomore album, Head in the Dirt is truly a rock album—the kind that will make you Read More

Share This.The National has released a second song from their forthcoming album, Trouble Will Find Me. They offered up the first song, “Demons”, last week, but “Don’t Swallow the Cap” is said to be their first official single. Trouble Will Find Me is due out May 20th.

Share This.While rap is a brilliant art form, you will not be hard pressed to find someone who absolutely despises the genre. Even fans have their qualms–and with good reason. Rap, a component of the collective culture that is hip-hop,  is assumed to have gone to the dogs. But having just survived a nuclear holocaust of materialism, misogyny, and ideological conformity, rap is currently undergoing a respectable renaissance. Whether by Read More

Share This.Theophilus London spends most of his time jetsetting across the globe–currently in Paris–but all the while, he’s been making a name for himself on the DJ scene, getting down with some of the best up-and-coming electronic and hip-hop producers in town. TL recently remixed Rihanna’s “Jump” with French producer Club Cheval. New music from last name London is always welcomed.  Written by Jessica Marti.↓

Share This.Femcee, Kitty Pryde, is back in the fray. “Ay Shawty” sees Pryde teaming up with Lakutis for a seductive, but snarling, number that follows the classic girl meets boy, boy meets girl, boy isn’t really feeling girl but girl isn’t really–listen to the song, you’ll get what we mean. In all, it’s great to hear some new stuff from Kitty Pryde.

Share This.We can’t stop listening AlunaGeorge’s new single, “Diver”. It is a rhythmic melody that is simultaneously intimate and distant. The song will be included on their forthcoming album, Body Music.
