ALBUM: The xx’s “Coexist”

After the release of their self-titled debut album, it became apparent that The xx was a very special band. Singers Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim pioneered the way for hushed, intimate pop vocals intertwining with sleek guitar riffs and synthetic beats. The band has little social media presence and rarely interacts extensively with th

SINGLE: Muse’s “Madness”

 Greetings from Copenhagen!

So, I was pretty stoked to hop on my computer today and find that Muse's second single from their upcoming album, The 2nd Law entitled "Madness," had dropped today.  When I first listened to the track, I was somewhat unimpressed, at least with the first minute or so.  The simple drum beat, remini

ALBUM: Gaslight Anthem – Handwritten

If you’ve heard “45” on WBRU anytime recently, you would assume that The Gaslight Anthem is a band that’s going to take you places. The album’s lead single, which also happens to be the lead track off of their most recent album Handwritten, kicks things off at a blistering pace with driving determination.

It’s perfectfor summer (as is most of their music), and comes with an accompanying v
