WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? by Billie Eilish // 5 Year Anniversary Album Review

When looking at the past decade of music, Billie Eilish 's debut album WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?  is a distinct moment in time that changed everything in the music industry. Billie and her older brother and main collaborator, Finneas , created this album completely by themselves in his small childhood bedroom in Highland Park, Los Angeles. At the time it was released, she was only 17 years old. Every single song was written, performed, recorded and produced solely by the two of them. To this day, they still make music that same way! They are both so immensely talented and truly once-in-a-generation artists.  This album is a genre blurring masterpiece, it is so innovative and varied from song to song. To confine Billie to one genre would be doing a disservice to her immense musical talents and this record   is the perfect representation of that. She and Finneas at the time were new, fresh voices in pop music that forever changed the landscape of the genre. They were b

The Best Songs of March 2024 // New Music Friday!

"Broken Man" // St. Vincent One of the best songs of the entire year so far is the lead single from St. Vincent 's upcoming album called "Broken Man".  I love the industrial grunge direction she seems to be going in, this sound suits her so well and I cannot wait to hear more!  I already know her new album is going to be a major contender for album of the year for me!  "Take Me To The River" // Lorde I always know it's about to be a great day when we get new music from Lorde ! As a part of A24's Taking Heads tribute album to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Stop Making Sense , Lorde released her cover of "Take Me To The River". This particular song also holds a lot of sentimental meaning for her too, as it was the very first song she ever heard from the band when she was 12 years old. She never misses with her covers and always finds a way to make them all her own. The lyric "Love is a notion that I can't forget, my sweet s

eternal sunshine by Ariana Grande // Album Review

Ariana Grande 's  eternal sunshine  is in part a concept album based on the 2004 film  Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as well as an insight into the place Ariana is currently at in her life. Sonically it is very pop and R&B inspired, with an emphasis on having a 90's and early 2000's throwback feel. It is also among some of her strongest and most consistent bodies of work yet. The film that the album's title and many of the songs loosely reference is about a couple who agrees to undergo a medical procedure to have each other erased from their memories forever, following a bad breakup. For Ariana, this album represents a final lamentation on her ex-husband and their divorce, as well as looking optimistically into the future with her new relationship. She uses the plotline of that film to portray the downfall of their marriage and how she overcame the heartache that came with her divorce, singing "you're just my eternal sunshine" to her ex-husban
