Music Crush Sundays: Double Feature: R2Bees // Goldlink

A slightly late MCS post. I realize Sunday has come and gone, but seeing as though today is a holiday in Turkey (Commemoration of Ataturk, Youth and Sports Day) it still feels like the weekend in my mind. This week, we’re switching things up with a double feature (the world just has so much good […]

Music Crush Sundays: Little Dragon

I discovered the amazing band that is Little Dragon back in 2011, primarily through their third album, Ritual Union (2011). Their music was unlike anything I had ever heard before, effortlessly mixing soul and rnb with electronica. Needless to say, I was hooked. Headed by frontwoman Yukimi Nagano, Little Dragon hails from Sweden, and has been […]

Music Crush Sundays: Daniel Wilson

“I was wondering/If I could wait for you”, croons Daniel Wilson, on “Will You”, a tune off his new EP titled, “Young Rubbish”.  A Michigan-native, 23-year old  Wilson has a beautiful voice, with a falsetto that makes you want to weep.

My latest music obsession this week undoubtedly belongs to MISUN, an amazing band coming out of Washington, DC. They describe their sound as ‘aquawave’, which they describe as “60’s rock & roll nostalgia with […]

My Favorite Albums of 2013

I’m a huge music junkie, and I have to say, 2013 introduced me to some amazing music all around. Here are the albums that I bumped for weeks on end during this past year, in no particular order! (1) Nothing Was the Same (2013): Drake As once mentioned on my blog, this album was ridiculous. […]

An ode to Shad: Flying Colors, social criticism, and Canadian/Rwandan dopeness

Let me start off this post by saying that since November 2013, I’ve been INFATUATED with Shad. A Rwandan Canadian-born (London, ON) rapper, Shad’s flow is ridiculous, as he pulls listeners in with hard-hitting rhyme after rhyme. Shad’s been putting out work for many years now, but I was primarily introduced to him through his latest album: Flying […]
