The AP Euro Review: a journey in procrastination

February 25, 2014

It’s 11:09 p.m. (nine minutes after my self-imposed bedtime) and I’m far from snuggling under my flannel bed sheets. By the looks of it, I will be violating my own rule for the fifth night in a row, and, judging by my track record, this won’t be the last time. I’m on Tumblr, of course. Or, at least, I was. Then I clicked on link for a YouTube... Continue Reading

Winter Was Warmer — Little Jungles

Logan McMillen

April 4, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

With psychedelic backwards synths, whispered vocals, nauseating slide guitar and propulsive bass, Little Jungles’ latest track is a lesson in carefully orchestrated chill out music. Enjoy.

Keegan Swenson

April 3, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

Earl Sweatshirt is a member of the hip hop collective out of Los Angeles, California. They are creating the most unique rap music in the industry; a kind of hybrid between punk rock and gangster rap.

Neeve — Woolfy (PVTH Remix)

Logan McMillen

April 2, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

A lesson in multi-layered beats. Combining elements of 80’s pop production with samba rhythms and ghostly vocals, Neeve is a complex electronic tune that’s as catchy as it is intelligent.

Lady Luck — Jamie Woon

Keegan Swenson

April 1, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

With a set of swooning vocals (reminiscent of James Blake) and a raging R&B electronica beat, the newly discovered Jamie Woon delivers a rich yet brief song coated with pop texture.

Night Drive With You — Anoraak

Logan McMillen

March 31, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

80’s throwback bands have recently come into vogue. The airy, modulated synths, snappy drum beats, and whispered vocals make the super heavy bass pop. Worthy of multiple listens.

Lotus Flower — Radiohead

March 30, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

Perfectly blending the rhythmic-leaning first half and the gorgeous emotional second half, “Lotus Flower” proves that Radiohead are still on top of their game and better than anybody else at what they do.

Rattling Cage — Schils

Logan McMillen

March 29, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

Distorted bells, spacey drums, discordant riffs, and vocal chants make for an all around interesting listen. The break down at 2:15 is dark and foreboding, making the second half of the track more palatable.

Civilization — Justice

Logan McMillen, Diversions Editor

March 28, 2011
Filed under Featured Songs

With discordant wobbling bass, a foreboding hi-hat intro a-la “War Pigs,” and some ultra poppy vocals, the latest Justice single is worthy of listen after listen.
