My Name is Albert Ayler and I Play Fire Music | Features | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

My Name is Albert Ayler and I Play Fire Music

Albert Ayler, never getting the wider recognition he truly deserved, unleashed a free-form musical exploration that went beyond the boundaries of jazz or any other music that included everything he experienced musically – from church spirituals, New Orleans and Army brass music, to world folk forms, to free improvisation – any and all of these themes, often all at the same time....

Troye Sivan : The Anthem

Troye Sivan came to The Anthem in D.C. with a stellar performance, with support from Leland and Kim Petras, the crowd was swooning all night long. Check out our full gallery of shots and be sure to catch him on tour....

Kanye off the rails (again), the Vic Mensa backlash, and ‘Tha Carter V’

We're finally back and discussing all the major happenings in music like Lil Wayne's long, long-awaited Carter V album, T.I.'s best album since Paper Trail, more unnecessary collabs from the likes of Lil Baby and Gunna, Vic Mensa killing his own career, and Kanye going off the rails (again). Oh and we also throw in some talk about the McGregor vs. Khabib sh*t show and go on a far too long aside about Dragon Ball Super (it happens more than we'd care to admit). ...

Sting & Shaggy – 44/876 Reaction

At times it can be as hokey as you'd expect, crossing off a checklist of myriad Caribbean and reggae cliches, but damn if it isn't an enjoyable listen nonetheless. I can't remember the last time we've heard Sting having this much fun and their clear natural chemistry together makes for good vibes....

Smoke DZA – Not For Sale Reaction

Smoke DZA's "Not For Sale" is an homage to classic hip-hop and it may not open him up to a new audience outside of his already core fans or hip-hop purists but it's still yet another solid addition to an impressive and growing discography....

Thirty Seconds to Mars – AMERICA Reaction

Thirty Seconds to Mars try their hand at a politically charged record but they ultimately come up well short of saying or adding anything worthwhile to the conversation. It's essentially an album that's full of vapid buzz words/phrases set to painfully generic electro-infused pop rock. It's not a "terrible" album but it's not a particularly compelling one either....

Alison Wonderland – Awake Reaction

Alison Wonderland's sophomore effort is a crazy mix of wide ranging sounds that kept me on my toes throughout, not really knowing what to expect next. I'm not the biggest EDM fan but I really enjoyed her brand of music and I never would have guessed that someone could make me like a Chief Keef EDM song as much as I did....

J. Cole – KOD Reaction

I'm a fan but I've been as critical of his music as any one out there, but Cole absolutely knocked it out of the park with KOD. Easily his most relatable project yet that has something for everyone. If you're still in the 'hate J. Cole' camp after this then you're just not listening enough or you haven't experienced life enough. Simple as that....

Hard To Kill – Hard To Kill Reaction

Hard To Kill's sound is dark, lo-fi, moody, and very reminiscent of early A$AP. It's mood music and although it's nothing particularly new or different, it is extremely well done and I found myself grooving with the vibes for a large majority of the album....

Tinashe – Joyride Reaction

Yes, Tinashe does have a nice voice and yes there are a fair amount of head nodding pop numbers, but once again it was an experience that left me feeling largely indifferent. It checks all the boxes for what a pop album should have but misses out on the soul and personality needed to make it really stand out....

Kali Uchis – Isolation Reaction

Despite the clear similarities to Amy Winehouse, Kali Uchis' music stands on it's own and it's a brilliant exploration of blues, funk, soul, R&B, and latin sounds, which she maneuvers through with impressive ease. Isolation is a breathtaking debut and a statement piece that shows she might just be music's next big thing....
Superorganism - Superorganism Reaction | Reactions | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Superorganism – Superorganism Reaction

Superorganism's music is about as youthful, happy, and oddball as I'd expect from a group clearly born of the internet age and has an almost infectious quality to it that you can't help but vibe to. It's definitely one of the most inventive albums I've heard in a while and they clearly speak directly to this generation of teens....
