87 % Piece of the Pie: A Playlist

After every half hour session of grilled bbq meat, cans of beer, and dripping pieces of fruit, all that’s left is the pie. For what it’s worth, the “old fashioned favorite,” is sweet, warm, comfortable, traditional and friggin’ delicious (one of the three things I can ever actually eat at a cookout). Apple, cherry, blueberry,… Read More

Album Review

YG // Still Brazy

When I listen to an album the first time through, sound and overall aesthetic are the initial factors that determine how much I like it. This is especially true in the realm of gangster rap, known for the ad-libs and violent onomatopoeia. I still remember getting goose bumps when the beat dropped on Chief Keef’s… Read More

Album Review

Mitski // Puberty 2

Brandi: On a subway ride, the icy grasp of rejection, isolation and unrequited affection crawls over skin and pulls at tear ducts. There are too many people around for this to be a problem. At the core I become warm, my heart races past my panting and feels like it’s skipping. With only five people… Read More

Happy Birthday Kevin Barnes!

Yesterday was Kevin Barnes’ birthday. He is of Montreal, having written almost every song the band has released, and at this point the group is pretty much a Kevin solo project. 42 is the meaning of life, the universe, and everything, at least according to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and 42 is also… Read More

Album Review

Death Grips // Bottomless Pit

The summers of 2014 and 2015 could not have been more different for me. 2014 was the start of a new relationship, and 2015 was the difficult ending. Although the two summers were a year apart, and although they corresponded to two opposite emotional poles of my life, I associate both summers with many of… Read More

Frankie Cosmos // Next Thing

Tiny green buds and blades sprouting underneath thin veils of crisp white snow are a first sign of the transition to spring. Winter tends to linger, washing the skies with dreadful gray streaks and leaving traces of biting winds. All the while, there is a bright optimism that situates itself amongst it. In it’s transition… Read More
