Egghead by Bo Burnham

Fangirls, I’ve been wanting Egghead since I first heard that Burnham was releasing a book. But it fell to the wayside as I didn’t see it in Target, and that’s the most accessible place to buy books around here. But the other day I finally went to a Barnes & Noble again, and grabbed Egghead (along with Watsky’s How To Ruin Everything), and I could not wait to read it. So on the car ride back I started flipping through the poems and I couldn’t get enough.

Music: Gallant // Weight in Gold

TS70mEwZI  had an entirely different plan for this article, Fangirls. Then a few hours before I wrote this, I heard this artist for the first time. Everything else was on hold, I had to talk about this, because after only minutes of listening and I was obsessed. I had never heard of Gallant before, or his song, when it was mentioned briefly in a video I was watching, I immediately hunted it down. Something told me it was going to be good. To my delight, I discovered a song, and an artist, that is killing itRead More »

The A.V. Club

portland-press-herald_3278451A few years ago, admit the height of my YouTube obsession (though I’m not certain I’ve ever come down), I discovered an amazing channel along with my brother that we totally fell in love with. It’s combines the wonder of live music with the fun of covers and the thrill of incredible musicians. Though it seemed like it might have been short lived, the show is alive & kicking more than ever in it’s now sixth season. Plus, they’ve got an incredible website offering even more goodies to boot. Read More »

Music: Leon Bridges

Leon BridgesBoy, have I found something good, Fangirls. I have a real passion for good soul music, but it seems to have had it’s era, which has come and gone. However, that’s no longer the case. Leon Bridges has arrived to grace our ears with a vintage sound so classic & true it’s hard to believe this album was just released this week. Read More »
