Life is a thousand winding paths in a dark forest of possibilities. We never know where we’re truly headed. We may have a route in mind, only to find out that the road ends. But for every dead end we ram into, two more paths open up.

With the advent of Tinder, gender equality, and changing social norms; romance has changed. The rules of our parent’s generation no longer apply to our generation. Technology has exploded our dating prospects. 50 years ago you would meet maybe a handful of people per week, today you can meet a handful of gorgeous

As you may already know I have an obsession with folk music that has a larger than life sound. Those oohs & ahs, pounding drums, and shoegaze guitars always get me! Today, I would like to introduce you Brooklyn-based band, Yellerkin. These are one of the few indie folk bands that will make you want to dance!

The moment I fell in love for Foals was when Spanish Sahara played in the British superhero show Misfits during one of the hottest sex scenes ever to grace television (here’s the scene on YouTube, but warning that major spoilers will ensue). After that I become obsessed with Total Life Forever, an album that had the

You know that scene from the typical coming-of-age movie where the hero is riding in a car, perhaps it’s rushing to confess their love to someone or racing against the clock to make it to some life-changing event, and they stick their head out of the car and scream with joy? The sun shining down on them, hair ruffling

I’ll be blunt: I hated Toro Y Moi’s previous release, What For? Hate is a strong word, but the album was enough of a departure from his previous work that I had been wholly rebuffed by Chaz Bundick’s new sound. Indie folk rock, what for?

One euphoric song is all it takes to turn your world upside down. After Bubble Butt, I lost faith in Major Lazer. Here was one of my favorite electronic acts, that masterfully combined old-school dancehall with house, suddenly vying for the goofy typical hip-hop grinding song. Ugh! But on the night of my birthday,

My dear readers, I would like to introduce you to one of the most eccentric indie bands rocking the airwaves right now: tUnE-yArDs. Their sound cannot be explained through mere language. It’s one part worldbeat, another part freak-folk, a underlining of indie-funk, a bit of art-pop, and dash of electropop. I have no

After four long years, Beirut is back from the dead. The fear that they would never return was reaching a critical point and I kept asking myself would The Rip Tide be the last lingering memory of them? That album was beauty incarnate. Actually, every album of theirs is beauty incarnate. Zach Condon’s voice is forever

Watch out! There’s a new slumlord in town to hike up the rhythms. That Slumlord is the new Neon Indian single. Before you start listening, I’m giving you fair warning, the moment you press play this song will burrow itself into your mind and cause sudden fits of headbobbing when it’s most embarrassing. This song is

It’s time we face the truth. EDM has invaded the planet. There’s no escaping the candy-flipping hordes of youngsters dancing to dubs, house, and R&B auto-tune samples. EDM is here to stay, whether you like it or not.

Music is my medicine. It’s the one thing in the world that puts me in a state of flow, where my thoughts roam free and my emotions break free. Music stops the world from spinning. And there’s one musician I always go back to experience the magic of music: Andrew Bird.

Let’s face it, romance is different from previous generations. We don’t meet potential lovers through neighbors or family friends anymore. Instead, we swipe right on our phones in hopes to find the one (for the night). We don’t offer flowers on the first date. We offer drinks, lots of them. We don’t go on dates, we
