Look What YOU Made ME Do, Taylor – Taylor and Her Reputation (Again)

Unless you live under a rock, (which sometimes, things like this make me wish I was), you’ve probably heard that Taylor Swift is back with a new song and a new album soon to follow behind it. Yup, that’s right, the Snake Princess herself is back, but this time…she’s the one…calling herself a snake? Yes,…

Dear Taylor Swift…

Taylor Swift. What can you say about her? A lot more than you probably thought you’d be able to back when you were first introduced to her in 2006, I’m sure. She’s one of the most successful and powerful female musicians alive today, considered one of the finest songwriters of our generation and paved the…

New Music Round-Up! What Worked and What Didn’t

Some pretty big profile songs came out within the past couple of weeks, or at least songs with pretty big name artists attached to them.

P!nk: Pop’s Most Underrated Pop Star

P!nk. So many things can be said right now of this well known musical artist. Immense talent. Brash attitude. Potty mouth. Underdog? Surprisingly so. Some people may wonder how P!nk, hitmaker since 1999, could ever be considered an underdog. But the unfortunate and completely unfair fact is that this is true. The Doylestown, Pennsylvania native…

Ryn Weaver & “The Fool” : Underrated, Yet Undeterred

  It’s possible that you heard Ryn Weaver’s “OctaHate” last year, but it’s also possible that you didn’t. It’s a different sounding kind of break-up song. It’s electronic at parts, rock-esque in others, which perfectly sets up the listener for her debut album The Fool, which defines the idea of not fitting into one single genre….
