Pinned Review

Porter Robinson - Nurture
100
Wisps of light filter through partially-closed, navy-blue curtains as my eyes begin to blink themselves open. It’s a bright, chilly spring morning. The day I’ve been waiting for.

Since I was a wide-eyed eighth grader obsessed with Beat Saber and politics Twitter, laying across the apartment couch and blasting “Sad Machine” through green-glowing Razer headphones, I’d waited. I’d waited through a worldwide pandemic, locked in my room; I’d waited through ... read more

For the past year, hope has been a dangerous feeling to have. 2020, even what we’ve experienced of 2021 thus far, has been a series of dim flickers of hope crushed by reality.

In the early months of 2020, the Democratic primaries ... read more

Benjamin Lasky, also known as Quadeca, is an American rapper and YouTuber. With nearly 2 million subscribers racked up, Lasky stopped uploading consistently to focus on music, taking a break from uploading to his main channel for five months before announcing his long-awaited 𝘍𝘳𝘰𝘮 𝘔𝘦 𝘛𝘰 𝘠𝘰𝘶, originally slated to be released on March 18th and later delayed by a couple of weeks.

AJR - OK ORCHESTRA

Think about everything you hate about AJR. Their overblown production, their awful writing, and their inability to convey emotion. How bad The Click was. How bad Neotheater was. Hell, how bad the singles for this album were. Now, forget every last one of your past experiences with AJR and listen to this a couple times. No, you may not like it. No, they haven’t solved every problem. But I think that OK ORCHESTRA is a huge step forward for AJR, and I think you’ll agree.

AJR is an ... read more
