I pressed play on “Breath Of Life” by Florence and the Machine with a sense of skepticism. I knew the band, and I could listen to songs like “Shake It Out” and “Dog Days Are Over”, but they weren’t exactly my first choice of music. Although I liked their indie pop-rock sound, I found their music bombastic and their sound disorganized and random in nature....
It has just been announced that Bob Dylan will be coming to Cornell April 14th!
Dylan will be playing in Barton Hall to what will surely be, a crazed crowd!

Sounds like: Mystery Jets, The Black Keys
Darwin Deez is definitely more…experimental than any of the other stuff I listen to, but in a good way. I felt like their album was just this really eclectic mix of indie pop and rock with witty lyrics like “a career track to the fridge an...
For years I've downloaded the iTunes Single of the Week and thus, I've come to acquire a rather eclectic collection of them. But iTunes has outdone itself this time with the January 14th free release of The Lone Bellow's single "Bleeding Out." A perfect fusion of Mumford & Sons and The Civil Wars, this Brooklyn-based band quickly became my new obsession with its Sout...
In lieu of this evening's INSANE news that Kendrick Lamar will be performing on Slope Day, I have decided to share some of my all-time favorite K.dot songs.
For those of you who may not know, Kendrick Lamar is THE rapper right now. A native of Compton California and a member of West Coast hip hop supergroup, Black Hippy, Kendrick dropped his first studio album 'good ...
Up-and-coming rapper Kendrick Lamar will headline this year’s Slope Day, the Slope Day Programming Board announced on today in a surprise visit to the Student Assembly.
The announcement came during a discussion of a pending amendment to the Student Assembly Charter. One of the board’s members, Slopefest Director Dani Gredona ’13, was scheduled to be at the meeti...
Sounds like: Fun., Passion Pit, Young the Giant
“It’s Time” for Imagine Dragons! This four piece band from Vegas is making waves with their 80s and electric kick to a classic rock sound. Their band name even has an interesting twist to it; it’s an anagram thats meaning is only known by band members Dan Reynolds (vocals), Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass)...
This Week: Bachata
With prelim season comes studying, procrastinating and panicking. Too quickly we forget the need to escape and relax. Listening to this week’s Latin Single of the Week should help to get you into a relaxing (and maybe dancing) mood.
Bachata lovers rejoice! There’s a new girl on the block.
Rising artist Leslie Grace released her hit “Will You...
This artist has been around for a while but has never really had his HUGE moment so I feel like he is appropriate for this week's memorandum. If you haven't already heard of Logic he's an insanely dope rapper from Maryland that I want to be friends with.
Logic is kind of like the Girl Talk of hip-hop. He mixes samples of popular instrumentals by Kanye, Nas, Kid Cudi, B...
All in all, there was nothing to complain about the performances last night. The tributes to other artists were moving and exciting, and the collaborations between different artists were well-matched and fun. The best of the best were:
Taylor Swift, who opened the show with a circus/carnival/Alice in Wonderland themed performance of “We Are Nev...
