Originally, I had this album at a lower score with a curt, casual “review.” That was because I had given it one-and-a-half listens, wherein I was half-asleep for the full one, and the message of it flew over my head. Oops. Anyways, here’s my sincere thoughts about The Great Depression by Defiance, Ohio.

Like I said, this band’s name is an actual place and I live near it, which is cool to me because I live in the middle of nowhere. I’ve found that no one ... read more

Lana Del Rey's music is always Pretty. Sadly, that's all that Chemtrails Over The Country Club has to offer. While 2019's Norman Fucking Rockwell presented a big step forward, Chemtrails is Lana standing still. The fantastic songwriter that created "Mariner's Apartment Complex" has slouched too hard into a hazy, romantic stupor over Americana; one that only someone who dates cops could glamorize this much. What I'm saying is that thematically, Lana brings nothing new to the checkered ... read more

I won’t pretend to know shit about the roots of punk music. Aside from my dad showing me FEAR’s performance that got them banned from SNL, my knowledge of punk does not go deeper than the big names of the 21st century: Many of whom have “folk” or “pop” slapped before the identifier. So while I can’t write about punk as a genre, I can write about it as an adjective. If something is “punk” (in the context I envision), it is in opposition to ... read more

I've tried to write a "review" of this so many times and deleted it every time, so oh well. I love this tiny album. It's honest and it's beautiful. It reminds me of myself.

Fave tracks: The Woman That Loves You, Heft, Triple 7

"Tell the man I'm coming / Tell them count the days" is a bold beginning that I was intrigued to hear from one of my go-to wallowing-in-sadness indie artists. There is definite shift in tone on "Be Sweet" from Jbrekkie's previous work to a more empowered, upbeat disposition: A welcome progression. The only element of her style that hasn't seemed to undergone metamorphosis yet are sonic, as familiar synths and song structure shines through, but that can hardly hinder Michelle ... read more

An atomic bomb of an indie record. The second LP from Cleveland group The Sonder Bombs completely exceeded my expectations. Clothbound shows major improvements in songwriting, and an overall stronger feeling of confidence and self-assuredness as opposed to their already-good debut, and it's absolutely infectious. Willow Hawks has a voice that's meant to be remembered, and meant to sing. From the songs alone, one can sense the beginning of something important: Something about to explode. ... read more
