Critical Voices: Future, <i>Honest</i>

Critical Voices: Future, Honest

By:
04/24/2014

As I listened to Future’s new album Honest, I came to love its brusk, old-school lyricism and tried-and-tested trap beats. The Georgia rapper broke into the tier of relatively mainstream rap over the past three years with his debut album Pluto and a few collaborations with other famous artists, such as Rihanna, Gucci Mane, and…

By:
04/24/2014

The moratorium on issuing liquor licenses to bars and restaurants in the neighborhood of Adams Morgan expires this month and faces possible renewal. The D.C. Alcoholic Beverage Control Board first issued the moratorium at the behest of the neighborhood’s Advisory Neighborhood Commission in 2000, when the District operated under the financial discretion of a congressionally…

Critical Voices: Cloud Nothings, Here and Nowhere Else

By:
04/09/2014

Cloud Nothings has really produced something special with Here and Nowhere Else. Promenading along the line between rage and beauty, Cloud Nothings’s latest release is an effective juxtaposition of pop hooks and seething punk. Where one would normally expect chaos from overdrive and anxious percussion, there is grace. Here and Nowhere Else is the most…

Critical Voices: Real Estate, <i>Atlas</i>

Critical Voices: Real Estate, Atlas

By:
03/06/2014

Real Estate has finally waded out of the shallowness of beer-drenched suburbia. While their previous efforts laid the foundations for the dissonant genre of suburban surf rock with flawless instrumentals and gorgeous vocals, the substance in the songwriting has been significantly lacking. But in Atlas, Real Estate injects legitimate meaning into their lyrics—melancholy and introspective,…

Critical Voices: St. Vincent, St. Vincent

By:
02/27/2014

Watching videos of Annie Clark, better known as, St. Vincent, move her fingers up and down the frets of her guitar so effortlessly, almost transiently, gives me chills. Truly one of the best female guitar players I have seen, Clark began topping out the Billboard charts in as early as the release of her sophomore…

Critical Voices: Eric Churches, <i>The Outsiders</i>

Critical Voices: Eric Churches, The Outsiders

By:
02/20/2014

“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: Warpaint, <i>Warpaint</i>

Critical Voices: Warpaint, Warpaint

By:
01/30/2014

“All those moments trying to figure me out never seem to come around.” This lyric perfectly captures the tone of  the eponymous sophomore effort of Emily Kokal’s Los Angeles-based band, Warpaint. A puzzling album, Warpaint’s gritty texture and nocturnal melodies prove distinct, and yet they keep a familiarity with classic shoegaze. The album opens lackadaisically…

Free speech code fails to live up to promises

By:

GUSA and the Georgetown University Speech and Expression Committee held a free speech forum last Friday titled, “Free Speech in the Digital Age: Are There Boundaries?” During the question and answer period of the forum, members of GU Pride and H*yas for Choice brought forth concerns about their ability to exercise free speech by tabling…

Critical Voices: Bruce Springsteen, <i>High Hopes</i>

Critical Voices: Bruce Springsteen, High Hopes

By:
01/23/2014

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…
