Album Review: Fall Out Boy Go EDM/Trap For “Mania”

For Mania, Fall Out Boy have matched their core sound and infused it with EDM and Trap influences. A smart move considering there is no genre that embraces the manic of humanity quite like the Electronica world. We are all about beat-drops and rising synths, which matches well for a band that always loves ornate… Continue reading Album Review: Fall Out Boy Go EDM/Trap For “Mania”

Album Review: The Shins Go For The Worm’s Heart

Album Review: Camila Cabello’s Debut Makes You Love Camila

Frankly, I went into Camila Cabello’s debut, Camila, expecting “full bops”, and it delivered. “In The Dark” and “Into It” gravitate to music’s current “electro” fusions and have the “radio-friendliness” that we expect from Camila Cabello. Meanwhile, “She Loves Control” and “Inside Out” like, “Havana” further display that she is including her fierce Latina/ tropical… Continue reading Album Review: Camila Cabello’s Debut Makes You Love Camila

Can you embody shame? Do you want to?
