The Weekly List: Boyhood

[8tracks url=”http://8tracks.com/mkb108/weekly-list” ] Hey guys and welcome to my first attempt at the Weekly List! My inspiration for this week’s playlist comes from the film Boyhood and that introspective happy-sad mood it evokes. Released on July 11, Richard Linklater’s hit independent film is a thought-provoking journey that took 12 years to make. It follows the…

After an exhausting drive from Boston, Massachusetts to Georgetown and an afternoon of moving heavy boxes into my room, my mom and I felt ready for a relaxing evening. So, instead of booking a hotel downtown or in Rosslyn as close to campus as possible, we decided to stay in Alexandria, Virginia. Exploring a different…

The Death of Death Cab?

The Death of Death Cab?

There’s something about Seattle, Washington and the surrounding area that breeds angsty musical prowress like nowhere else. The city has given birth to artists such as Nirvana, Modest Mouse, Eddie Vedder, Band of Horses, the Head and the Heart, and many others. And it was 17 years ago that out of this creative power house…

To Imitate and Deviate

To Imitate and Deviate

Beyonce is revered as an idol. But, when paired with Jay Z, she transforms into a goddess. Together, the Carters become a dynamic duo, selling out concerts and creating an obsessive (bordering on scary) fan following. Their work not only as a couple but also as musicians demonstrates the power and benefits of artistic collaboration….

The Maltese Falcon, made in 1941, is a classic movie which has been held by many to be one of the best films of all time. Based on the book by Dashiell Hammett, the movie is set in San Francisco in the early 1940s. Watching The Maltese Falcon is a reminder that the classics are…

Neon Trees: Burning Bright ’till the End

Neon Trees: Burning Bright ’till the End

Like their name suggests, everything about a Neon Trees concert is dazzlingly bright. From lead singer Tyler Glenn’s glittery boots to Branden Campbell’s rhinestone studded bass guitar, there’s no shortage of onstage flash. What’s even more impressive is the band members have the energy to match, playing like it’s their first or last live show…

Critical Voices: Kitten, "Kitten"

With a stage presence like Dave Gahan and a distinctly New Wave sound, Kitten frontwoman Chloe Chaidez is back with a vengeance. This week, after almost five years of teasing with EPs, the Los Angeles-based band finally released their eponymous debut album. It’s been a long time coming, but there’s no question that this is…

Critical Voices: Lucy Hale, The Road Between

Critical Voices: Lucy Hale, The Road Between

By:

Lucy Hale takes a road straight through mediocre pop country on her debut LP, The Road Between. The singer turned actress turned…singer…spends the album trying to be herself but comes out something of a boring cross between herself, Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert. Hale’s Swift songs fit the right mold. Some follow the pattern of…

In 1949, longtime San Francisco-based journalist Herb Caen published a collection of essays about the city entitled Baghdad by the Bay. (If you’re interested, it’s available for purchase here.) The moniker, which Caen came up with himself, was apparently meant to encapsulate the city’s verdant—and growing—multicultural exoticism and to conjure an association with the ancient…
