NICE Carol of The Bells Probably one of the most liked Christmas songs, both the choral and Trans-Siberian versions bring an exciting intensity to the holiday season.

Brockhampton and the Redefinition of Boy Bands

November 27, 2017

It used to be that boy bands were so structured, that it was hard for any of them to be different from each other. Each group made almost the same corny pop love songs, had one “punk” member for the teenage goths to relate to, and each member had their own “distinctive style” for merchandise purpos...

I feel like not too many have heard the 'new' album by Two Door Cinema Club, entitled Gameshow, that came out in October 2016. I can see on Spotify that their most successful song from the album has only garnered up to 16 million listens, which is quite minuscule when compared to the band's most p...

On March 29th, 2017, rapper Logic announced via Twitter that he would be releasing a new album entitled "Everybody," on May 5th. The album was highly anticipated by listeners.

They have one album out that came out in 2014, entitled Pedals, and it’s been one that I thoroughly enjoy. I first heard about the band through a Spotify radio pl...
