Sistrionix

Grade: C+

 

Who would’ve thought the rock duo, Deap Vally would meet each other in a crochet class in California! Lindsey Troy on guitar and vocals, and Julie Edwards on drums and vocals released their debut album, Sistrionix, early this year. With comparisons to the White Stripes, Joan Jett and Janis Joplin, the two has taken the music world by storm. (more…)

Review: Melophobia – Cage the Elephant

Thursday, October 17th, 2013 by Billy Dries

MelophobiaCage The Elephant

Melophobia

Letter Grade: B

 

Melding together the upbeat songwriting that made their first two albums so successful, with a distinctly more lo-fi sound, the third release from Bowling Green Alt-rockers, Cage the Elephant, continues to drive more traditional Rock N Roll into the mainstream.  Melophobia, the follow up to 2011’s wildly successful Thank You, Happy Birthday, starts off with two fast paced jams before slowing down in the third track, Telescope, a slow moving, somewhat sad, surf guitar fueled little ditty that is stuck somewhere in between The Beach Boys and Mac Demarco.

Glow and Behold

Letter Grade: C+

 

Reviewed By: Margaret Jokoh

On September 30, 2013, Yuck released their album, “Glow and Behold.” Contrary to their name, Yuck, is a band who makes great music. The indie sound is brighten up with the influence of trumpets and the use of distortion pedals. “Glow and Behold” is smooth and very clean all the way through. Songs like, “Lose my Breath” definitely “glow” more brightly on the album than some of the other songs on the album. (more…)

Review: Volcano Choir – Repave

Wednesday, October 16th, 2013 by Billy Dries

VC.SP_DP_Gate_Cover_rev [Converted]Volcano Choir

Repave

Grade: A

The organ drone that kicks off Repave, the sophomore album from Eau Claire based band Volcano Choir, immediately captures the listener and sets them on this epic journey of an album. Justin Vernon and friends have been hard at work since Bon Iver hung up their instruments at the end of 2012. Vernon already released one album with his band The Shouting Matches this year, and while that was a foot stomping and jug blowing good time, Repave and Volcano Choir pick up where Bon Iver left off. Just as the lead single, “Byegone”, had alluded to over the summer, each song grows in complexity from beginning to end, resulting in an album of rich folk anthems. (more…)

Let’s Be Still

Letter Grade: B+

 

Reviewed By: Margaret Jokoh

October 15, 2013, The Head and The Heart released their sophomore album, Let’s Be Still. The album is comforting and soothing with the influence of meaningful lyrics. For those who are new listeners to the band, it has a mix of folk, indie and country, reminiscent of Mumford and Sons and Passenger. You can tell that every song is carefully thought out; though many songs are very simple, when it boils down to it, this is what makes the band truly genius. They show you that a band does not need the complexities of instruments and voices to not only make a great song, but a great album. (more…)

You can still buy tickets to the show, if you hurry! It’s a short run and going to sell out! It’s going to be an incredible show – members of our staff saw it in London and loved it! Besides, it’s all Queen songs so it has to be good.

Days Are Gone

Letter Grade:

(There are no A+’s at Loyola)

 

Reviewed By: Margaret Jokoh

On September 27, 2013, sisters Danielle, Este and Alana of Haim released their debut album, Days are Gone. The album has a very elective sound, with it ranging from classic hip hop beats to funky guitar riffs. This is represented in songs like, “My Song 5” and “Running If you call my name.” Without fail, the sisters continue to portray their classic sound with synthesizers, dope drum beats and their hypnotizing melodic voices.
