A Sort of Goodbye

May 6, 2012
On any normal Sunday morning, I would be fretting over which song is going to be the song of the week. But not this week. We sent out our last issue of the semester on Thursday, so a song of the week is not needed. So it is at this time that I will announce…

Bon Iverotica

May 3, 2012
The name on everyone’s lips at the Grammy awards this year was Bon Iver, or Bonny Bear to some. Mostly it was just people questioning who he is. First of all, it’s not a he. It’s a they. Bon Iver is the musical brainchild of frontman Justin Vernon.   Through his romantic, heart-breaking repertoire and…

Hologramania

April 29, 2012
Don’t even tell me that hologram projections are seriously going to be the next big thing in music. Yeah, the Tupac Coachella hologram was pretty nifty, but let’s not make this a recurring thing. We still need some authenticity to our live music.   Apparently the music industry is heading in a different direction. This…

Song of the Week: “Silenced By the Night”

April 29, 2012
I have a slight obsession with the letter “k” when it comes to music. Most of my favorite bands utilize this special letter in their names: The Killers, Kings of Leon, Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian and The Kills. Oh, and Keane. Besides The Killers, Keane has been with me the longest since I really started getting…

Song of the Week: “I Found You”

April 24, 2012
Alabama Shakes couldn’t have picked a better time to jump into the music scene. As folk and soulful music continues to gain some traction, they’re stepping into a welcoming environment. The group’s rootsy rock is just plain infectious and uplifting. Who doesn’t like music that makes you feel good?   Currently, the band is embarking…

Resurrecting Tupac

April 17, 2012
First off: an apology. I’m sorry that I didn’t include Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg’s set in my Coachella viewing guide. Why? Because at the time of writing my viewing guide, they were not slated to be featured on the festival’s YouTube page. They were eventually added.   So if you weren’t following my viewing…

Song of the Week: “Need Your Love”

April 16, 2012
Remember that movie 500 Days of Summer? You know, the one I still haven’t seen. Well, you may also remember the massive hype that was generated for Aussie indie rock band The Temper Trap after their song “Sweet Disposition” was featured on the soundtrack.   Dougy Mandagi and the crew are back with a new…

Lana Del Rey Dancing

April 13, 2012
I like to have a laugh every now and then (by that, I mean all the time). So when I first discovered the Lana Del Rey Dancing Tumblr through some fellow Ithacan staff members, I wasted a good deal of time perusing.   If you’re as obsessed with GIFs and memes as I am, you…

Your Coachella Viewing Guide

April 13, 2012
Are you like me and unable to attend the ever-amazing Coachella Music Festival this weekend? Well, welcome to the pity party, I’m Jared and I’ll be your guide. Out of the kindness of their hearts, the festival organizers have once again enabled us poor souls to join in on the fun with a live stream.…

Song of the Week: “Dirty Paws”

April 9, 2012
With the recent success of indie folk acts in the American music scene, Iceland’s Of Monsters and Men are looking to make quite a splash this year. As of late, bands like The Avett Brothers, Mumford and Sons, The Civil Wars and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros have enjoyed some mainstream attention with their…

Jack White’s Gruesome Death

April 6, 2012
Jack White didn’t really die, but his new video for “Sixteen Saltines” will have you thinking otherwise. The visual interpretation of the track, which will be featured on his upcoming album, Blunderbuss, finds Jack coming in close contact with some extremely troubled youth. Okay, they’re actually just plain psychotic. You can watch the video below…

Song of the Week: “Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings)”

April 3, 2012
Indie rockers Silversun Pickups have broken their three year silence since 2009’s Swoon with the introduction of their new track, “Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings).” The song is slated to be the leading single off their forthcoming LP, Neck of the Woods, which drops on May 8th. I’m sure Al Roker’s making some royalties off that…
