The singing sister trio graces our ears with beautiful harmonies and sweet lyrics that are sure to make a lasting impression. Their vocals shine on every track and the folky sound is great on every song. This re-release of their debut album features 6 live tracks for your listening pleasure.

Arguably one of the most famous (and totally dreamy) bands in the world right now, One Direction, released their third album “Midnight Memories” this past November. I locked myself in my dorm room and definitely had minor heart palpitations while listening to their newest and by far most mature sounding record. The band that came in third place on the UK’s X Factor in 2010 adopted a completely new sound on this album, giving it more of a folksy feel and less of a typical boy band sound. Considering the album has already sold over 700,000 copies, I’m pretty confident in saying that One Direction is definitely here to stay!

Beyonce_Jordan Hernendez – Beyonce – Beyonce – [itunes link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/drunk-in-love-feat.-jay-z/id780330041?uo=4″ title=”Itunes”]

Beyonce proved that she is truly the queen of the world with her new album. No promotion or speak of new music and then BAM! On December 14th, a picture with a black background and pink letters that spelled Beyonce appeared on iTunes. Anything Beyonce’s releases will generate sales but she showed that the work on the album was worthy of all the praise it received. 14 songs and 17 videos filled with a perfect combination of sexual yet personal lyrics and eye-popping visuals. No song is like anything Yonce has ever produced in the past. Mostly ballads with a few dance tracks in between, this self titled album shows off Bey’s new image as well as her incredible vocal ability.

DARKSIDE-PSYCHICBilly Dries – Darkside – Psychic – [itunes link=”https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/freak-go-home/id687549424?uo=4″ title=”Itunes”]

If you like psychedelic rock, then this is an album for you. Smooth guitar riffs and a melodic and steady electronic beat give Darkside a sound that is completely unique. This is an album that shouldn’t be missed out on, so start with “Paper Trails” and see if this blues meets electronic duo is for you.

Despite the absurdly long title, this album is near perfect. She’s at her most honest with this album and it’s definitely worth a listen.
