Concert Review: Dream Wife Are Bad Bitches At Baby’s All Right

Dream Wife made their NYC debut with one single command: All Bad Bitches To The Front! Lead singer Alice Go repeated the phrase so much, I felt compelled to go (lol!). Yet, as the demand was thrusted unto the audience, followed by a migration of female heads to the front of the stage, you got… Continue reading Concert Review: Dream Wife Are Bad Bitches At Baby’s All Right

Concert Review: Soccer Mommy Feel Like Music Therapy

I reviewed Soccer Mommy’s record, Collection, and thought it to be as thoughtful as their performance at Baby’s All Right. Brooklyn felt like the perfect domain for them to play tracks about living inside your head. From dreams to insecurities, Millennials are statistically, the highest educated and spiritual generation to rise, but there are pitfalls… Continue reading Concert Review: Soccer Mommy Feel Like Music Therapy

Concert Review: Joywave Bring Content To Bowery Ballroom

I have to ask a band if headlining makes them think or feel differently compared to opening. Just a few months ago Joywave was the first opener at Summerstage; flash forward a few months and they were the final act in their sold-out show at Bowery. Yet, this time they brought a whole new level… Continue reading Concert Review: Joywave Bring Content To Bowery Ballroom

Concert Review: Barns Courtney Leaves His Heart At American Beauty NYC

As I Iooked around American Beauty NYC to see leathers, furs, and velvets drape over the crowd’s fashion, I fully expected Jim Morrison to resurrect and do a show, and, in a way, he did through Barns Courtney. His swag resonated with Morrison and Mick Jagger in oozing sensuality and love-torn sentiments. Courtney presented himself… Continue reading Concert Review: Barns Courtney Leaves His Heart At American Beauty NYC

Concert Review: Metronomy Are Literal Joy At Brooklyn Steel

GIVE ME LIFE! GIVE ME LIFE, LORD! That is what you will say in the praise-fest that is Metronomy! Now I am NOT saying they are a religious group, but I certainly felt the Holy Spirit. I mentioned it in my Tigertown review that, sometimes, the hardest bands to review are the ones that specifically… Continue reading Concert Review: Metronomy Are Literal Joy At Brooklyn Steel

Album Review: Fabrizio Cammarata’s Brings Light In “of Shadows”

Fabrizio Cammarata’s Of Shadows is a tender, visual soundscape into the travels and triumphs of a growing artist. The Mediterranean singer wrote Of Shadows as he traveled internationally to rediscover performing arts as an entity that reflects and elevates humanity. A song can reveal to you a world, and, in doing so, make you an… Continue reading Album Review: Fabrizio Cammarata’s Brings Light In “of Shadows”

Album Review: The Limiñanas’ Istanbul Is Sleepy Will Wake You Up

The Limiñanas’ Istanbul Is Sleepy is “like the classic dream where you become the hero, the Captain Blood or Midnight Sultan. The one who rescues and seduces Maureen O’Hara or Ava Gardner.” At least, that is how Anton Newcombe of Brian Jonestown Massacre presented it after being featured in the title track. Frankly, I could… Continue reading Album Review: The Limiñanas’ Istanbul Is Sleepy Will Wake You Up

Album Review: Tigertown Let Out Their Inner “Warriors”

I have reviewed Tigertown before, and I LOVE their sound and energy. Their newest EP, Warriors, puts their lively presence into a 4-track, music capsule. There is not too much to Warriors beyond the fact that it makes you feel like much. You want to dance, sing, and give in to feeling good! About time!… Continue reading Album Review: Tigertown Let Out Their Inner “Warriors”

Album Review: Talib Kweli Empowers His Voice Through “Radio Silence”

Talib Kweli prides himself with being one of the most socially conscious and, thus, relevant rappers of our time, and with good reason. Kweli has fearlessly used his Twitter to call out racists, but it is his music that calls out humanity. For Radio Silence, Kweli delves into the clashing and cohesion between freedom of… Continue reading Album Review: Talib Kweli Empowers His Voice Through “Radio Silence”

Concert Review: Iron & Wine Sips On “Woo Juice” At Town Hall NYC

  Iron & Wine drank up the “Woo Juice” that splashed across his set at Town Hall NYC. Honestly, even I had to giggle at the constant wooing, of which he laughed at how it only made him stronger. Artists can tell when a crowd loves them and wants to hold on to their songs… Continue reading Concert Review: Iron & Wine Sips On “Woo Juice” At Town Hall NYC
