Australian singer songwriter Grace Shaw, known by her stage name Mallrat, is bringing her eclecticism to DC9 on Thursday, September 26th. Characterized by her surprisingly blunt vulnerability, the 20 year old’s third EP, Driving Music, has become another breakthrough in the up and coming subgenre of bedroom pop.  Since Shaw’s first EP, Uninvited, she’s used…

The Goldfinch is a Poor Reproduction of a Work of Art

In a rustic West Village workshop, two ostensibly twin claw-foot chairs are set in front of a young Theodore Decker (Oakes Fegley): one an authentic piece of period furniture, the other a reproduction of the antique. The difference between them is tactile—as Theo runs his fingertips over the dark mahogany grain, he finds the reproduction…

Critical Voices: The Nothing, Korn

By:

To be blunt, Korn’s The Nothing is their emotionally darkest record yet. The nu-metal outfit’s thirteenth, thirteen-song record dropped (in the most authentically Korn style) on September the thirteenth. The Nothing came to fruition as Jonathan Davis, Korn’s frontman, was mourning the loss of his wife who died of an accidental overdose in August 2018….

In the leadup to the release of JPEGMAFIA’s third studio album, All My Heroes Are Cornballs, the Baltimore-based rapper released a series of mock promotional interviews in which he plays his new album to celebrities and films their sarcastic disapproval of his new sound. This serves to not only introduce the listener to the multi-layered…

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. …

Critical Voices: Norman Fucking Rockwell!, Lana Del Rey

By:

Introspective and immersed in nostalgia, Lana Del Rey’s sixth studio album Norman Fucking Rockwell! (2019) does not reflect a specific era—it captures a feeling. Infused with images and memories of California, the album exemplifies Lana’s ability to transcend genre and allows listeners to glimpse a more tender, vulnerable side of her character.    Lana Del Rey’s…

Critical Voices: Midland, Let it Roll

I’ll start by saying I don’t like country music. I always change the station when I hear it on the radio, and it doesn’t make me want to dance, party, or do any of the other things that country songs seem to be about. Somehow I stumbled upon Midland and their first album, On the…
