For fans of: Foals, Ra Ra Riot
Swedish band Shout Out Louds were always a band that I was always a bit iffy about. I discovered them back in the day when the OC was still on the air, and one of their songs played on the show…speaking of which, does anyone remember that show? I really, really miss it. In fact I kind of want to marathon it now but I digres...
To sing a little Queen, "She gives me hot and cold fever, then she leaves me in a cool, cool sweat." Hopefully, I wasn't varying the temperature too much this week by playing songs with the theme of temperature in the title, artist, or album name. It's said that cows can predict the weather. Who needs Mark Baden, our hometown Channel 12 weather anchor, who always shows off...
On Monday evening, Slope Mag editor Leela Chantrelle and Slope writer Mckenzie Sullivan got the opportunity to interview up and coming rapper Chester Watson. Only 15 years old, Watson has been posting beats on the internet and already racked up more than 70k views on his video for Phantom. Read more about Chester here and check out the dope interview below! Keep an eye on...
[caption id="attachment_23020" align="alignnone" width="300"] UK band Daughter[/caption]
Sounds like: The xx, Of Monsters and Men
Daughter is one of those artists I can listen for hours. Their previous two EPs were on constant repeat for me when I first heard them, and I foresee the same for their debut full length album that just released. Daughter has this ability ...
After years of name changes, numerous EPs, and two albums, Portland, Oregon-based band, STRFKR, has finally settled down. Their dreamy electro-pop album Miracle Mile is definitively a cohesive work, and a good one at that. Though not strikingly different than previous works, Miracle Mile exhibits a developed confident sound from STRFKR. They landed on a musical identit...
I see you reading this post. Don't ask me how I know. I just do. Maybe I have secret powers. You'll never know unless I suddenly die, and it comes out in my post-mortal blurb that a real-life superhero walked amidst us, and we weren't even aware that super humans even existed outside of Hollywood. Some things are best left unsaid. Certain words can alter the present. Somet...
Here's a song that has gotten me through the blinding snow on the Arts Quad today.
Thank you Chrome Sparks for the dope track that is "Marijuana"
I hope you are as into Fleetwood Mac and the song "Dreams" as I am, because I promise you I can listen to the original and remixes for hours.
This Week: Latin Pop
This week I thought it would be nice to lighten the mood and listen to some music that just makes you want to jump up and dance and will have you lip-syncing along.
Belinda—all grown up! We all remember Belinda from her Cheetah Girls 2 days and from when she was a child star in the series Amigos X ...
Sharon Van Etten's voice is stunning. It's that hollow, windy, whispering tone that always raises the hair on the back of my neck and makes me hold my breath when I hear it. In her songs, she also perfectly says the things I would like to say in a way that doesn't sound forced at all. Listening to Sharon Van Etten is ...
