CV: The Shins, Heartworms

By:

The Shins have never been a band to take risks. After accomplishing the impossible by striking a remarkably original, balanced, and mature sound on their first record, growth seemed both unnecessary and improbable. Heartworms, the band’s first release in five years, gives weight to this sentiment. Despite being a dutiful continuation of The Shins’ traditional…

CV: The Orwells, Terrible Human Beings

By:

At first glance, Terrible Human Beings, The Orwells’ latest album, has all the makings of a cult classic. The title is shameless, the cover art screams 90’s alternative with its platinum-blonde Uma Thurman look-a-like, and the track list promises chaos with songs like “They Put A Body In The Bayou” and “M.A.D.” All of these…

What’s that? You were rejected from all the ABP trips you applied to and failed to make adequate backup plans? The best you could think up was an impromptu road trip to Ohio, abandoning all hopes of returning to Georgetown with a sun-kissed glow? Same! Here’s a playlist to keep all my fellow road trippers…

For Evan Stephens Hall, the ampersand is more than semi-alphabetic—it’s prophetic. Hall, lead singer of indie rock band Pinegrove, has been deeply moved by the symbolism behind the character “&.”  He’s given it prime real estate in Pinegrove cover art, etched it onto merch and, as if that wasn’t enough, inked it onto his upper…

Georgetown alumni Scott Conroy (COL ’05) and Peter Hamby (COL ’03), co-creators of the sitcom Embeds, discussed their experiences covering the 2008 presidential campaigns as embedded reporters during the Institute of Politics and Public Service’s Jan. 30 event “Embeds: Reporters Revitalizing Political Journalism.” The event featured six clips from the show, each followed by remarks…

Concert Preview: G. Love and Special Sauce, Jan. 29, 9:30 Club

In a music industry saturated with overproduced and unsatisfying pop tunes, G. Love and Special Sauce keeps it old school. Although the three-man combo group has come quite a way from their 90’s ska roots, their sound remains soulful. Lead singer and guitarist Garret Dutton’s punchy vocals meet Jim Prescott’s laid-back bass lines at a…

In a 1961 interview with Jaqueline Kennedy, Sander Vancour said to the new first lady, “If I may say so, without disrespect, every time I’ve been in the White House it always seems to be a rather cold and austere place.” Director Pablo Larraín takes these words to heart in his new focused biopic, Jackie….

This past week, over a million Facebook users checked in to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to show their solidarity with Dakota Access Pipeline protesters and thwart any potential targeting efforts by officials. Having followed the escalating severity of the situation the past few weeks (through the dedicated reporting of Amy Goodman), I was awed…

After years of red carpet commotion and outrageous performances in which concerts were elevated to  spectacles, the public has grown to expect nothing but the abnormal from Lady Gaga. Naturally the only thing that could surprise Lady Gaga’s little monsters is normalcy, and herein lies the genius of Joanne. The album is normal. Joanne is…

Critical Voices: Joyce Manor, Cody

By:

In the five years since they burst onto the emo revival scene with their 2011 self-titled album, Joyce Manor has spit out three unapologetically fast-paced albums. Cody, their fifth and most recent album, divulges a softer, more somber side of the California punk band. Although the album is just twenty-four minutes long, Cody is unusually…
