Ernest Greene Jr., or better known by his stage name, Washed Out, is a singer, songwriter, and producer from Georgia. While many people don't know about him, he is probably most well known for his track Feel It All Around which is the theme song for the television show Portlandia. Besides that, people have categorized his music in the chillwave category, even though he notes hip hop as an influence. Purple Noon marks Washed Out's fourth studio album.

The first track from the album is Too Late. It starts out with some high pitched, layered and reverbed vocals effects. After the quick fifteen-second introduc…

Glass Animals are an indie pop and psychedelic pop band from the United Kingdom. After hearing an advertisement from Spotify about Glass Animals for their debut album, I was hooked instantly. While each of their albums sounds completely different, they are able to keep their fans coming back for more.

Dreamland marks the third studio album for Glass Animals.

The first track from the album is the title track, Dreamland. This was one track that I did not enjoy when it firs…

Dominic Fike is a singer/rapper and songwriter from Florida. While gaining a small following from being featured by BROCKHAMPTON, Dominic Fike finally comes out with his first, full-length debut album, What Could Possibly Go Wrong. While I was excited about this studio album, I was a bit let down by the end product.

The first track from the album is Come Here. It's a sub two-minute track, but it sets the tone of the album with heavy riffing guitars. I definitely was not expecting the album to start off this way, but I actually kind of enjoy this sound from him. The vocals aren't polished over at all, you j…

Advertisements. You see them when driving, you see them in stores, you even see it on the television. However, one form of advertising that is gaining traction is online advertisements. You might see posts on several forms of social media, or you might get a video advertisement on YouTube. With that being said, I decided to run a Twitter advertisement for 24 hours. This was a quick test since I am making an e-mail list in the near future. Here are some of the things I have learned from this 24-hour experiment.

Lupe Fiasco is a rapper and producer based out of Chicago. Lupe Fiasco teams up with Kaelin Ellis for this EP, who is a producer that focuses on hip-hop and electronic beats. HOUSE marks Lupe Fiasco's latest project since his amazing 2018 album, DROGAS WAVE. This is also the first time the two have worked together. After someone commented on a Kaelin Ellis beat video, they suggested to give it to Lupe Fiasco. The two eventually found each other and created a quick, 5 track EP.

The first track from the EP is HOMME MADE. There isn't much going on instrumentally, just a few quiet notes that are played in the …
