Critical Voices: Bahamas, Bahamas is Afie

Whenever I find myself emotionally deep in the cheap seats, I often turn to my favorite artists for the inspiration I need to move forward. For most of my years spent in the South, this support usually came from the likes of Johnny Cash and Ryan Adams, whose heartfelt lyrics could transport me out whatever…

The Weekly List(en): Can’t Stop The Chillwave

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/cumberdale/downtempo” width=”500″ height=”500″ ] Whether you’re in the zone at Lau or zoning out back out home, sometimes you just can’t handle lyric-driven music. This eight-song selection of atmospheric electronica (some call it chillstep, chillwave, or trip-hop) is guaranteed to be devoid of any lyrical meaning, opting instead for meditative ambience. Sink into the…

Any band foraying into the realm of indie-pop can attest to the difficulties that this genre presents. Trying to create a catchy, high-energy sound without coming across as empty and shallow is difficult. Alix, the fourth studio album by Generationals, straddled this fine line deftly. The New Orleans, indie-pop duo, born from the high school…

Critical Voices: Tweedy, Sukierae

By:

Sukierae, father-son duo Jeff and Spencer Tweedy’s first album, plays like a twenty track long jam session, with all the good and bad that implies. The duo, going by the name “Tweedy,” takes a relaxed, meandering approach to music. It’s a guitar heavy album with experimental prog-rock leanings, wistful, classic rock overtones, and the occasional…

Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby  Overcomes Limitations

One thing that needs to be understood about The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is that it was originally conceived and screened as two films: Him and Her. These films, which both depict the same story of a collapsing marriage, were filmed separately and are each told from the perspective of one member of the central…

Walking down U Street towards the Howard Theatre’s classic, regal exterior, I saw the awakening signs of the neighborhood’s dynamic nightlife. I arrived 30 minutes before doors opened, and a thirty-person line had already formed. Thanks to some very kind fellow Hoyas, I ended up third in line to walk in. Considering that the theater…

Who are the people that teach at Georgetown? How did they get to be where they are today: standing in a packed auditorium lecturing about realist theory or leading a vibrant discussion about poetry? As a student, I know why I go to class each day, but why do my professors get up to teach?…

If Adams Morgan–or “AdMo” like the cool kids (read: me) call it–was a member of the DC family, it would be that crazy, hipster cousin who listens to bands with names like “The Ambiguous Lampshades” and tells you about the coolest hole-in-the-wall restaurants where you can find some of the best Jamaican jerk chicken DC…

Dancing with yourself is a skill, one best mastered on a dark dance floor surrounded by people you don’t know. With rhythm seeping through your veins and just enough bravery to release those self-conscious inhibitions that keep you stationary, all you need is the right song to feel like you’re on top of the world….

Luca Cordero di Montezemolo, Ferrari icon and resident nut job, has stepped down from his position of chairman at Ferrari. He will be replaced by Sergio Marchionne. The FIAT-Chrysler alliance is now, in the words of the “Financial Post,” a “one man show.” It’s the end of an era. di Montezemolo’s importance to Ferrari feels…
