Olivia Rodrigo and the Beauty of Teen Music

Despite how personal some popular music may feel, it is almost always a group effort. Large record labels have much invested in artists and won’t let them fumble around creating whatever they please. True, untouched, individual music, with a few exceptions, can only really be found on the fringes of the music industry’s fiscal scale.Continue reading “Olivia Rodrigo and the Beauty of Teen Music”

The Problem With BTS’ Loss at the 2022 Grammys

After being delayed due to Covid, Music’s Biggest Night was last week, though not as big as the name suggests. The 2022 Grammy Awards followed the trend seen with last year’s ceremony, receiving an average of 8.9M viewers – a pretty low number for an event of this scale. The night however, wasn’t free ofContinue reading “The Problem With BTS’ Loss at the 2022 Grammys”

THE MAGIC OF A SOUNDTRACK

As I enjoyed my long, long winter break, I spent some time meeting with friends, catching up and going out. However, not only I had the time to catch up with my friends, but also with my reading and movie list. And this week I found the time to enjoy a good home cinema. AsContinue reading “THE MAGIC OF A SOUNDTRACK”

Tick, tick… BOOM! How much time do we have to do something great?

Spoiler Warning!  “[…] lately I’ve been hearing this sound. Everywhere I go, like a tick, tick, tick… Like a time bomb in some cheesy B-movie or a saturday morning cartoon. The fuse has been lit. The clock counts down the seconds, as the flame gets closer, and closer, and closer, until… all at once [boom]”.Continue reading “Tick, tick… BOOM! How much time do we have to do something great?”

Supercut and nostalgia

Credits in image – Being a media student, I could pretend I have always been well aware of what a supercut is. Still, that would be a lie. It was only a few weeks ago that I decided to look up the definition of this word.  According to the Oxford Languages dictionary, a supercut isContinue reading “Supercut and nostalgia”

The Rise Of Måneskin And Why It Matters

Photo credit @etro/ Instagram – To someone who isn’t deep into Italian music (and I’m guessing the majority of the people reading this aren’t) the name Måneskin is probably new, or at least a very recent discovery. I doubt many people outside of Italy had ever heard of the band before 2021.Yet Damiano David (voice),Continue reading “The Rise Of Måneskin And Why It Matters”

Why Don’t We Go There: Why The Dislike for One Direction’s Music Is (Most Likely) a Product of Your Misogyny.

Alright. I’m going to lay it bare and say it out loud: I used to still am a fan of One Direction. And by that I mean that I have a special playlist for all of their songs which I often listen to repeatedly (there are quite a lot of bangers in there (steal myContinue reading “Why Don’t We Go There: Why The Dislike for One Direction’s Music Is (Most Likely) a Product of Your Misogyny.”

Kanye West – Reanimator

  The waiting was gruesome, but Kanye never faltered. Every now and then he applied his ear to the chest of the specimen, and bore the negative results in typical Kanye fashion: by throwing a non-sequitur rant. He’d wax hyperbolic about breadth and width of his art, claiming that it couldn’t be contained by mereContinue reading “Kanye West – Reanimator”

Classical Explorations

While classical music has been a rather large part of my cultural education, it hasn’t played an important role in my adult life. I do like to listen to it playing in the background while I study, read a book, or do one of my other very wild favorite occupations. But after all this time,Continue reading “Classical Explorations”
