Spring in the District and the approaching advent of summer herald some of the biggest music events of the school year. On April 11, the a cappella community, led by Superfood and the Saxatones, will be taking over Gaston Hall for Spring Sing, the last true a cappella concert of the year. Spring Sing represents…

AdMo’s latest Asian joint is full of BUL

By:
02/19/2015

BUL, Korean for “fire,” is the most recent in a series of trendy—read: caters to yuppies—Asian restaurants to open in the heart of Adams Morgan. Like other joints along this row, BUL falls into the unfortunate restaurant trap of high prices for too little food. Even the most conscious consumer could end up paying an…

Critical Voices: The Gaslight Anthem, Get Hurt

By:

On the New Jersey punk rock band’s fifth LP, frontman Brian Fallon lost sight of the road beyond his dashboard and steered the Gaslight-mobile straight into Heartbreak Hotel. This is a breakup album, hot on the heels of Fallon’s recent divorce; and though The Gaslight Anthem should be hailed as a rock ‘n’ roll institution,…

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…

Critical Voices: Eric Churches, The Outsiders

By:

“Outsider” is the perfect word to describe Eric Church’s state of mind on his fourth studio album. On this LP, Church, a country troubadour, makes the transition from hometown boy to arena superstar, generating an identity crisis. Church spends much of the album trying to reconcile the country boy and rockstar sides of his persona….

Critical Voices: Bruce Springsteen, High Hopes

By:

In his new LP High Hopes, Bruce Springsteen continues his role in being a recorder of the bleak and the joyous moments of life in America. Springsteen’s albums since the turn of the millennium have, for the most part, served as his own State of the Union address. From seedy, underground alleys and bars to…

Critical Voices: Wooden Shjips, Back To Land

By:

Although they call their latest album Back to Land, Wooden Shjips seems to be lost at sea.

On their fourth LP, the band uses a mix of Doors-inspired organ and fuzz-out guitar riffs to create a collection of trance-like, five-minute trips. “Ghouls” features a repeating organ riff that sounds so classic, you might wonder if you’ve heard it somewhere else before.

Critical Voices: Paul McCartney, New

By:
10/17/2013

Paul McCartney is the only artist on earth who could get away with calling a new album “New.” New is not even all that new, as the album is pervaded by classic McCartney sounds and visions from his pre-Beatles days. But does this matter? Of course not. What does matter is that this is one of Sir Paul’s best solo works to date.
