Review: Wise Up:Thought (Remixes & Reworks)-Elvis Costello and The Roots

Monday, March 31st, 2014 by Margaret Jokoh

news_444-1374499787Wise Up: Thoughts (Remixes & Reworks)

Elvis Costello and The Roots

Grade: B+

This album, definitely takes you on a journey of musical exploration. The title track, “Cinco Minutos Con Von” is a fusion of Latin jazz and and rap. The journey continues into a 50s inspired ballad, represented in the song, “The Puppet has cut his strings.” This 7 song album, definitely is a great listen for those who are fans of Elvis and The Roots, but also for new fans of the music. Wise up: Thoughts, is a great diverge from the general pop music scene out there. For those looking for a refreshing, innovative music, definitely give this album a listen!

Unknown Kate Marshall – Soko – “We Might Be Dead By Tomorrow” – I Thought I Was An Alien
I was watching this really endearing video of 20 strangers that were paired up to kiss for the first time (trust me, you don’t get second hand embarrassment that you assume would come with watching that…check it out here​) and about 30 seconds in, this hauntingly beautiful song chimes in with the line “if you’re not ready for love, how can you be ready for life” and I was instantly hooked to this french singer/songwriter. Paired with the video, the videographer and artist created such a charming and intimate moment I wasn’t really expecting at all.

3724697Leslie Weis – 5 Seconds of Summer – 
More accents and boybands!! Woohoo! This pop rock band, 5 Seconds of Summer, comprised of four adorable Aussies is pretty new to the scene and as well as millions of other girls all around the world, I’m obsessed. 5 Seconds of Summer began in December 2011 when Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford and Calum Hood joined together and started posting videos of themselves performing covers of popular songs to YouTube. A little bit later they were joined by drummer Ashton Irwin, and the current 5 Seconds of Summer lineup came to be. Last February, 5 Seconds of Summer announced that they’d be the opening act on One Direction’s worldwide arena tour and hysteria among all teenage girls immediately ensued. The boys are now currently signed to Capitol Records and are working on their debut album. Their new single, She Looks So Perfect​, has just made me even more addicted and it’s starting to become unhealthy and kind of scaring me.
