Millions of people across the country watch the Super Bowl halftime show every year, and Katy Perry’s recent one was no exception.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, and couples everywhere are preparing.

After three self-produced albums from the Portland-based band, Hot Afternoon, their first studio album, contains exactly the kind of relaxing, jangly stoner rock that you’d expect to hear while relaxing at the beach. While The Memories have some success with this style, there are…

About a year and a half ago, I went to a Cold War Kids concert with some of my friends. In one of the band’s most popular songs, “Hang Me Up To Dry”, there is a deliberately off-putting sequence of piano chords. A friend who wasn’t familiar with the band thought that they had messed…
