Dear Dave Barnes, I apologize if this sounds out of line, but I need to tell you something. I woke up to your voice every weekday morning for 3 years. “Until You” remained my morning alarm for 3 years of my college career. I never once got sick of it and pressed snooze not only […]

I truly and honestly believe Sara Bareilles can do no wrong.   What I’m about to tell you is old news.  She’s a great lyricist, plays the piano perfectly, has one of the best voices in the music industry today and, to top it off, a sense of humor.  I realize that I give a […]


I decided at a young age to be a non-conformist when it came to music. No, I’m not the type of person who used to like Death Cab before they were featured on The O.C. a billion times and then hate them with a hate so strong it can only be compared to that of […]


Generally speaking, I can determine whether or not I like the sound of a song after the intro. I determined that I enjoyed The Rat long before the vocals even began. Why? To be honest, aside from the drums, I can’t fully put my finger on it. However, once Leithauser chimed in with the vocals, […]

I spent a majority of yesterday’s work day listening to Band of Skulls after seeing their name on the 2012 Lollapalooza lineup.  Out of that big, long list, why was I attracted to a group with such a morbid name? Because it sounded familiar.  Do I know why? No, not a clue.  Generally, I try […]


You’ve all heard the story. A music hungry individual moves to L.A. to satiate his dreams of becoming a successful artist. Between struggles to hold a day job, find the perfect sound and book enough gigs to make a name for himself, he becomes mentally and physically exhausted. And that’s the end of it. However, […]


There are very few TV shows I get into. That’s not to say I can’t enjoy a rainy day on the couch flipping through the channels but, in terms of fully committing my precious time to a cast of characters, I’m a little stingy. Because of this stingy-ness, when I do find a show I […]
