Lana Del Rey – “Norman f*cking Rockwell” By: Jesse Benitez Haven’t written much on music this week; could be ’cause I’m going through something I don’t realize, or maybe binging Never Have I Ever has me all in my feels. Either way, the queen of melancholic pop, Lana Del Rey, never fails at helping me …

Yves Tumor – “Kerosene!” By: Jesse Benitez I know I slacked a little these past few days by not keeping up with the “Track of the Day” posts, but I guarantee you, this song alone (and quite possibly this entire album), makes up for all of it. Released as a single prior to Yves Tumor’s …

The Wombats – “Let’s Dance To Joy Division” By: Alexandria McAlpine Twice a year, I pick a song to represent my semester. Then, every time I hear that song, I’m transported back to taste the bittersweet moments of the past for a couple of minutes.  This semester, I’ve settled on “Let’s Dance to Joy Division” …

5 Seconds of Summer – “Wildflower” By: Alexandria McAlpine I personally, was counting down the days for the new 5 Seconds of Summer album, CALM (2020) since it was announced in February.

Miles Davis – “Petit Machins (Little Stuff)” By: Gavin Thibodeau 1968 was a supernova, a cosmic explosion that shook the window panes of culture, an eruption of the highest order whose reverberations still waft here and there through the air of today, a phantasmagoric imprint on history: paradoxically here and not here. It was not the …

Deeper – “Esoteric” By: Jesse Benitez Being stuck inside during this quarantine has got some of my buried teen angst resurfacing, but this time, in a much more contained form. “Esoteric,” the first track off Deeper’s latest release, Auto-Pain (2020), brings back some of that sad-punk nostalgia I’ve been missing for a long time. The riot-y …

  Fragile Girls – “失去尼歐” By: Jesse Benitez In the summer of 2018, I spent my time learning Mandarin Chinese in Taipei, Taiwan. I found that some of the best ways to learn a new language was to immerse yourself in the art, whether that be with books, movies, or music. Knowing my passion for …

Vundabar – “Chop” By: Jesse Benitez Last night, I had plans from a while back to see Vundabar live for the first time in the nation’s capital. Due to the on-going pandemic, however, I resorted to listening to their music in my home instead. I spent most of the night revisiting Gawk (2015), the second …
