After rising to fame as the bassist for the psychedelic pop group Tame Impala, Cameron Avery takes a starkly different artistic direction in his latest album, Ripe Dreams, Pipe Dreams. Tame Impala claimed their niche in the industry with spacey, dreamlike instrumentals, distorted vocals, and forlorn lyrics, attracting acid-chasing teens and summer festival-goers alike. Eschewing…

Enjoy the sunny days of Spring Break with fuzzy guitars, relentless bass, and banging beats: Nirvana – Come As You Are: From the best album of the best grunge-rock band of a grungy decade, “Come As You Are” typifies the genre, from its dirty production to its alternative angst.

P.O.S, born Stefon Alexander, wears his punk influence on his sleeve, opening his newest album Chill, dummy with a weighty electric guitar bassline and growling vocals, as he lays claim to his bold and peerless position in rap. Through the industry’s cultural explosion, rap has increasingly dipped its toes into other styles, as demonstrated by Danny Brown’s manic flows…

Originating from the Houston hip-hop scene of the 1990s, “chopped and screwed” refers to a type of remixing that creates a pensive and at times startling reinterpretation of popular songs. To achieve this effect, the same record is played on side-by-side turntables slowed to around 65 bpm, then it is skipped, scratched, delayed, and doubled-up….

The first single from Childish Gambino’s latest album “Awaken, My Love!” was released with little fanfare: a Youtube video of an eerie, gleeful, blue face, accompanied by a song entitled “Me and Your Mama.” However, the buzz around the song immediately snowballed beyond its understated release. “Me and Your Mama” is unlike anything Childish has…
