All Time Low

Spectacular growth on spectacular sophomore effort for rising UK music superstar

By Maura Harwood

Overall, I was incredibly impressed with “x.” The album features all of Sheeran’s fans favorite parts about his music. There is a fair share of sweet lyrics and his soulful voice. There are also some new qualities of Ed Sheeran as an artist to love, including his funky new songs such as “Sing” and his incredible rap skills.

Highly anticipated second album shows off a new darker & cinematic Del Rey
By Amaris Rodriguez

The “Summertime Sadness” may not be over. Lana fans rejoice, the twenty-seven year old American singer has released her second album Ultraviolence. With the success of her major-label debut album, Born to Die, Lana has become one of the biggest artists of this generation.  With a cult following dressed in flower crowns, Lana has managed to speak to the dark angst hidden in the hearts of teenage girls.
First major label effort in six years showcases complete but seemingly uneven transition to new sound, direction
By Alan Ho

Too bad, this EP would be entering near-perfecto territory if the liberal use of Autotune was not applied on one of THE best voices in pop/rock music today.  And on top of that, this reviewer cannot definitively say if this complete change in sound (not lyrics, they have remained very true to what they are from the start) is for better or for worse.  A full-length album with these five tracks included will be able tell the whole story of The Cab.

Up All Night
Alt-rockers' sophomore album pays great homage to all the weird kids out there
By Luanne Lim

The ten tracks on Weird Kids each have an individual inspiration and story, as revealed by one-half of the band’s lead singers Taylor Jardine to MTV. Each little story is accompanied by great harmonies between Jardine and the other lead singer, Jordan Eckes, and rockin’ instrumentals from Mike Ferri, Rob Chianelli and Cameron Hurley.
Born To Die
Solid major label debut showcases new vibe, attitude; exudes old-school soul, but not without rough edges
By Alan Ho

Lift Your Spirit is a solid major label debut, a long-awaited on at that considering it has been four years between releases. He would have broke out sooner if not for getting uncredited on the original "Wake Me Up," but "The Man" really set things in motion for the 35 year old musician.

The Venue
fun. Has Night to Remember in North Carolina Venue

I can’t remember the last time I was at a show where the crowd screamed as loud as they did for fun. The March 3rd show at Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, NC was one of the first few stops on fun.’s headlining tour, but I’m sure it will be a date the band will remember.
