Album Review: Jen Gloeckner – VINE

With Jen Gloeckner’s latest album, VINE, Lana Del Rey meets Twin Peaks meets Stevie Nicks. It’s the best type of ambient indie rock: it’s catchy and floaty with just enough of a grounding voice to keep you from feeling like you’re stuck in the clouds. Gloeckner’s music is, simply put, hypnotizingly beautiful and definitely worth a listen … More Album Review: Jen Gloeckner – VINE

EP Review: Conversion Delay – Out Of Sight

Whether it’s LCD Soundsystem or Franz Ferdinand, I love a good dance-punk album. When I got an email about Columbus-based Conversion Delay, an indie rock/dance-punk band, I stopped what I was doing – granted, Calculus homework is not the most fascinating thing, but still – to listen. I was definitely not disappointed with their latest … More EP Review: Conversion Delay – Out Of Sight

Album Review: The Graphics – Over and Over

Here in Columbus, we’re stuck in that weird springtime weather where one day, it’s sunny and warm enough to eat lunch outside, and others, there aren’t enough sweatpants in the world to warm you up. The solution for this constantly-changing weather is obviously some upbeat, summery music – like The Graphics’s Over and Over. This album … More Album Review: The Graphics – Over and Over

Album Review: The Regrettes – Feel Your Feelings Fool!

Since The Regrettes are coming to town on Saturday for CD102.5 Day Side B, and they’re a killer feminist pop-punk band, I decided that this album is an excellent way to close out Women’s History Month. They’re cool, they’re powerful, and they’re just the right amount of in-your-face, meet The Regrettes with Feel Your Feelings Fool!. … More Album Review: The Regrettes – Feel Your Feelings Fool!

EP Review: Jetty Bones – Crucial States

All I could think on my way to Baltimore this weekend was, “How have I not written about Kelc yet?!”. One of my favorite musicians who just so happens to be a good friend, Kelc Galluzzo is the mastermind behind post-punk/pop-rock project Jetty Bones. In person, Galluzzo is cool, energetic, and just about as colorful as her ever-changing hair – and her music is an excellent reflection of that spunk. … More EP Review: Jetty Bones – Crucial States

Album Review: Corbezzolo – Midnight

Exuding a sort of quiet confidence, Marie Corbo and Noah Demland – AKA Corbezzolo – create an unexpectedly fierce rock duo. In fact, other musicians in the scene look up to Corbezzolo for their confidence and ease on the stage, empowering themselves and others. Of course, as I learned this through my project’s interviews, I also realized that I’d have to write about their latest album, Midnight, because countless musicians recommended it to me. … More Album Review: Corbezzolo – Midnight

Album Review: Vagabon – Infinite Worlds

Laetitia Tamko, recording as Vagabon since 2014, creates “infinite worlds” through each album, as her Bandcamp description suggests. This multi-instrumentalist certainly lives up to that hype – Infinite Worlds, her latest album, came out on February 24 and proves that she does indeed create a seemingly limitless universe within its eight songs. … More Album Review: Vagabon – Infinite Worlds
