Critical Voices: Hollywood’s Bleeding, Post Malone

The nine-month roll out for Post Malone’s third studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, felt like a rollercoaster. The quality of the singles varied wildly, from the compelling “Goodbyes,” to the superficially pretty but substance-devoid “Circles.” All of the inconsistencies hinted that Hollywood’s Bleeding would be a wildly incohesive album. These expectations turned out to be correct. ...

First in the Family

Nearly every night I can remember from my pre-kindergarten years, my mom would read with me.

I’m sure for my mom this was a less-than-exhilarating routine of re-reading my favorite installment...
