NPR Tiny Desk: Noname

Vulnerability is one of the most important things in art. The ability to convey complex emotions and ideas in form is almost alchemy. Turning nothing into something and attracting the world to it. One of my favorite artists of 2016 came and performed at the NPR:Tiny Desk - Noname. Apparently, NPR is slowly planning on… Continue reading NPR Tiny Desk: Noname

More Life (Album Reflection)

For those wondering, the difference between an album REFLECTION and an album REVIEW deals with the content of the writing for my break down. Reflections typically will cover general thoughts about songs but more about the artist's trajectory or feelings the album left me. Reviews typically will be song by song breakdowns. Now, "More tune for… Continue reading More Life (Album Reflection)

H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1

Cloaked artists. Mystery music. Moods set by smokey lounges, late night drives, and midnight rendezvous. Slowed down and sexy tones pioneered by the Weeknd before he moved to the forefront of music and became a Starboy or went to Kiss Land. Mystery artists are all the rage today and today, I'll introduce two. Note: Sequels… Continue reading H.E.R. Vol 1 and H.I.M. Vol 1

The “Up”s and Downs of Relationships

A few weeks ago I was watching Up, and I must admit that I was late to the party. The movie itself was charming and went from ordinary to strange very quickly. The entire first ten minutes were cinematic genius and for five of them, not a single word was uttered. I was in awe… Continue reading The “Up”s and Downs of Relationships

Like the last few times, this is my personal favorite soul albums of 2016, not necessarily the best.

The Good News: Chance the Rapper Donates $1M to CPS

As anyone that has been following me over the recent years has seen me talk about Chance the Rapper and the new positivity he has been bringing to rap with The Social Experiment and Coloring Book. I can honestly say that my favorite rappers are "Christian Rappers", not just by content, but actions. Chance made an announcement to… Continue reading The Good News: Chance the Rapper Donates $1M to CPS
