Spotlight Thursdays: The Inoculated Canaries

Spotlight Thursdays is back with a new band from the New York area! This band reached out to me through Twitter asking me for their honest review of a music video. Since I enjoyed it, I gave them the opportunity to be featured on the next Spotlight Thursdays! Let's welcome The Inoculated Canaries to this week's segment of Spotlight Thursdays!
Tell me a little about yourself. What is the name of your band and how would you describe the genre of music that you create?

The Inoculated Canaries: Our band is called The Inoculated Canaries! We sound like 1974 crashed right into 1994. We like to play loud rock and roll music with guitar solos, and just a little sprinkle of angst.

Where are you based out of?

TIC: We’re from New York Citymore specifically, Queens. 
Tell me about your latest album. What was the inspiration behind this album?

TIC: We’ve been putting out songs from our latest album as singles. I think one of my favorites is “The Lawyer’s Wife”. That song is about a woman with an alcoholic son and a deadbeat husband. It was based on a true story about someone very close to me. 

How has music played a role in your life?

TIC: We are very fortunate to be teachers at the School of Rock. I was a School of Rock student myself at one point, and it was really awesome to be surrounded by musicians from a young age. All of us take a lot of pride in sharing what we know with our students. 

What is your main driving force when making music?

TIC: For us, everything has to be real. We don't use drum machines, digital trickery, or any of that nonsense. We record all of our instruments live, and we don’t use backing tracks when we play shows. If you wanted to hear a recording, you wouldn’t have come to see a live band.
What else would you like to let the readers know?

The purpose of this segment is to give exposure to artists who are new or do not have that much of a social following. With the digital age of the internet and changing atmosphere of music, almost anyone can create and upload music on the internet. However, a lot of artists go unknown, even if they put out quality music content. If you like this type of content, please let me know and get in contact with me if you would like to be featured on this segment! Check out the previous Spotlight Thursdays post with Igneous!

The boy band who swept a lot of people off their feet back in 2017 are back with their fifth studio album, GINGER. Brockhampton is a boy band originally formed in San Marcos, Texas. The group eventually moved to Los Angeles and grew in popularity.

The first track off the album is NO HALO. Compared to all of the other Brockhampton albums, this is a mellow opener. It starts off with a guitar and high pitched vocals. Throughout the track, members of the group talk about their imperfections and some of the issues they have faced. The title of the track, NO HALO, probably refers to the fact that they aren't perfect people. Merlyn stood out most on this track since …

Album Review: Happiness Begins by Jonas Brothers

The Jonas Brothers are a pop/rock band that formed back in 2005. After nearly a 6 year hiatus, they have released their fifth studio album, Happiness Begins.

Sucker was the first single released for the album. After hearing this song, I was actually excited about the Jonas Brothers reuniting. I was never a fan of them when I was in middle school and high school, but I knew I had to give this new album a listen. I actually really enjoyed the first track and it hooked me into the album right away. It's a high energy pop song, something that will definitely gather some air time on the radio. This is a typical love song, where this person loves someone else greatly, and they would do anything for them. The Jonas Brothers might be referring to their wives since all three of them are married.

Cool was the second single released for the album. This song wasn't one of my favorite when first released, but it is growing on me. It opens up with a slow acoustic guitar, and then a drum beat…

Bandana is a collaborative project between American rapper Freddie Gibbs and American producer Madlib. This is their second collaboration together, with Piñata being the first project back in 2014. Judging by the album, these two artists work really well together and have dropped a solid album this year.

The first track is Obrigado and it is an introduction track. The first part is a small clip from Freddie Gibb's uncle. The second part took me some time to actually realize the speaker was speaking English. Obrigado is Portuguese for "thank you." The title of the track could also be a play on words of the Japanese word…
