All Time Low

Controversial MC brings all the goods on excellent fourth album

By Katy Baldwin

Tyler, The Creator is notoriously celebrated for pushing the buttons on social norms. From creating riots, to his Mountain Dew commercial becoming banned, Tyler has always been there to slap huge grins on the inviting faces of rebellious youth. In his 4th album, Cherry Bomb, Tyler snatches a new spin on inspiration by drawing the curtains on his predictable dark, sentimental lyrics and creating tracks that are represented by a new and positive breakthrough.

Breakout British singer-songwriter storms into America with breakthrough debut album
By Hayley Holmes

It’s pretty easy to see that George Ezra is a uniquely talented individual who fills a gap in the music industry.  With a straight out of the 60’s type sound, Ezra gives a new definition to the singer-songwriter genre. It’s hard to believe that he’s a 21-year-old Englishman, but the irony of his sound is what makes him so special. Be sure to check out Wanted On Voyage in stores and on iTunes now, and don’t be surprised when we say, “I told you so” when he takes over the music scene this year!
Jonas Brother returns to the solo arena with a genre-changing and surprisingly solid sophomore effort
By Alan Ho

One thing for certain is one has to be surprised at his falsetto delivery, which is more controlled than even Maroon 5's Adam Levine, which can be incredibly monotonous at times.  Another thing for certain is if Justin can adapt his sound over time to match his image, there is no reason that Nick Jonas cannot do the same and with that, expect a tighter album next time around with hopefully a better bridge and mix with his pop and R&B leanings

Up All Night
Masterful sonic change and direction is showcased in newest release
By Amaris Rodriguez

Titled after the year she was born, 1989 proves that Taylor Swift made the right decision to officially be a pop star. While she might have changed genres, her songwriting is stronger than ever. The electric synthetic pop sound has revitalized her sound and made her an even bigger star than she already was. Taylor Swift brings a new sound, new hit songs and her 1989 album will win her new fans.
Born To Die
New musical chapter spawns spectacular solo effort
By Erica Devaney

The album closer, “Maps for the Getaway,” may be one of Andrew’s best songs yet. The melody may be simple, but the lyrics are what make this one stand out. “No cash in the bank, no paid holidays. All we have, all we have is gas in the tank, maps for the getaway. All we have, all we have is time.” It’s a reminder that all you really need in life is people you love, all you need is time and a getaway. Andrew’s always been one to share his thoughts and emotions in his lyrics - now even more so, and this is the perfect ending to a perfect album.

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.
