Liam Gallagher - As You Were

Liam Gallagher – As You Were Reaction

Liam Gallagher's first solo outing is an album of really good moments that does it's best to approximate what he considers to be 'real' rock. But it leaves out much of his gruff real life persona, ultimately leading to a project of no real consequence or feeling of genuineness....

Maroon 5 – Red Pill Blues Reaction

Maroon 5's latest is an extremely smooth, well polished, and professional sounding album that combined with Levine's now universal pop voice makes for a largely enjoyable listen. But it doesn't leave much of a mark either, incapable of evoking any genuine emotion....
The Birth of Grunge in Seattle | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The Birth of Grunge in Seattle

Grunge, Generation X's flagship music genre, brought about widespread appreciation of alternative rock with its bare-bones vibe. The musical movement itself, however, was fully realized years before it was popular and it was all self-contained in Seattle. ...

King Krule – The OOZ Reaction

King Krule's latest is not an easy album by any measure; you can’t just throw it on and immediately be taken in, it’s meant to be sat with and slowly digested as its many idiosyncrasies slowly reveal themselves. But once I let go of my expectations of what an album is supposed to sound like, I couldn’t help but get pulled into his mad soundscapes of isolation, anxiety, and slightly out of tune instruments. It’s as much a work of art as it is an album, but for someone who loves the odd and experimental as much as I do, The OOZ was about as rich an album as I’ve heard all year....

St. Vincent – MASSEDUCTION Reaction

On it's surface, MASSEDUCTION sounds like a straight up pop album but once you dig a little deeper you'll find something much more delightfully deep and subversive. Everything about MASSEDUCTION feels effortless and I couldn't help but get strong Bowie vibes from her, from everything from the music to the project's aesthetics, and I can't think of any higher praise to give someone who's so clearly all about the true 'art' of music....
Cults - Offering

Cults – Offering Reaction

Offering doesn't quite reach the heights of their debut and the music is noticeably brighter, shedding some of their darker undertones for a more generic pop album, but I'll be damned if it isn't catchy music all the same....
Smart Music for All: Adia Victoria Leaves the High Art/Low Art Duality Behind | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Smart Music for All: Adia Victoria Leaves the High Art/Low Art Duality Behind

Historically speaking, music has had a tendency to follow the binary model of low art/high art. However, more and more artists are moving between these two realms, and sometimes fusing them both within a single work. Take, for example, Adia Victoria. She makes intelligent music that still exists within a structure that will play to the footstompers. It has the danceability of a surf-rock release, but it also has the brains of a Jeunet. She makes smart work for smart people that can be listened to and enjoyed by everyone....
The end of Rolling Stone, Jhené Aiko with an AOTY contender, and the new Queens of the Stone Age album is hard AF

The end of Rolling Stone, Jhené Aiko with an AOTY contender, and the new Queens of the Stone Age album is hard AF

We talk about the possible demise of Rolling Stone as it's going up for sale for the first time since it's start in 1967. We talk about how we think they've lost their true identity as the counterculture bible and how they could possibly get it back. We finish things by talking about new albums we've been listening to like Jhené Aiko, Rapsody, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Foo Fighters....
Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold

Foo Fighters – Concrete and Gold Reaction

Foo Fighters are about as safe a bet as you can place in rock and roll. They don't do anything new here or take any significant risks, but they still continue to churn out good music. They're like that old reliable friend that you know is going to be there no matter what's happening around them....
Haim - Something To Tell You
3.8

Haim – Something To Tell You Reaction

Something To Tell You was my first Haim experience and it left me impressed not only with their great harmonizing and melodies, but also their deceptively accessible sound that belies their underlying complexity and stylistic breadth. It's a wonder they're not bigger than they already are yet....
Greta Van Fleet - DC9 Nightclub

Greta Van Fleet // Goodbye June : DC9 Nightclub

Goodbye June and Greta Van Fleet put on amazing sets for a packed house at DC9 Nightclub in Washington, D.C. on August 26. Goodbye June opened the night with great energy and their unique classic southern rock influenced sound blended with a modern edge. Greta Van Fleet headlined and from the opening chord brought a sonic "tour de force" that pictures just can't do justice....
Grizzly Bear - Painted Ruins

Grizzly Bear – Painted Ruins Reaction

Painted Ruins is an absolutely gorgeous album that delivers some of the densest and intricately layered compositions I've heard all year, delivering hidden nuance with each new listen. It's a moody, cinematic album that's been well worth the 5 year wait. Check this one out now!...
