The Last Bison: VA

Allow me to clarify how to pronounce The Last Bison’s new album, VA: Don’t pronounce it literally, but rather like Virginia, which is what the abbreviation stands for. The name is fitting considering the deep roots the record has in Virginia. A band of seven members that consist of …

Sinead O’Connor: I’m Not Bossy, I’m The Boss

I’ll be honest, I’ve never listened to ‘90s songstress Sinead O’Connor until now. In a way, I think that gives me an advantage as a listener and critic; I’m not listening to her as a loyal fan, so I can say impartially that her latest effort, I’m Not Bossy, I’m

The Belle Sounds: Black Stone EP

I love indie folk pop. It’s usually one of my favorite genres. And I tried to really hard to like The Belle Sounds’ Black Stone EP, but alas, I could not.
