Dent May- What's for Breakfast

Label: Carpark
Genre: Indie Pop
Reviewed by: Amir Lahoud
May's newest album airs on the side of whimsy with fun lyrics and quirky guitars. Although masked with sounds of whimsy, What's For Breakfast can't help but sound like an album begging you to get your shit together. Or maybe the first track It's Time For Breakfast really just means its time for breakfast. Later tracks in the album focus on giving different components time in the spotlight, back seating the drums and guitars to make space for May's vocals and maracas.

Ratt, Sundara Karma, and Vampire Weekend Reviews

written by Amir Lahoud on

Hello, music lovers! We have another fine collection of in-depth album reviews, sourced from none other than WUVT DJs Neil Orandello, Jillian Krinsky, and Emelia Delaporte!

If I could describe Ratt in two words, it would be “criminally underrated.” Many are not accustomed to Ratt, as they were overshadowed by most of the metal and hard rock bands of the 80’s, however Ratt’s first two studio albums, Out of The Cellar and Invasion of Your Privacy, are pure hard rock classics that fail to disappoint...

Adrianne Lenker- Bright Future

Label: 4AD
Genre: Indie Rock/Folk
For Fans Of: Big Thief, Diane Cluck
Reviewed by: Payton Williams
A consummate performance by one of the best songwriters working today. Not only does Adrianne Lenker have the poetic ability to write affecting lyrics, but her arrangements are constantly complex and powerful. A once-in-a-generation artist. Some of these songs are as close as art can come to conveying the pure feeling of love and longing. A real masterpiece.
