A Seedy Side of Paradise: Room Thirteen brings tropi-pop songs to The Atlantic June 2 [Artist Feature]

By: Tyler Francischine     A cool breeze tousles the fronds of some tall palms, and the sea laps lazily at the shore.

One … Continue reading A Seedy Side of Paradise: Room Thirteen brings tropi-pop songs to The Atlantic June 2 [Artist Feature]

New Single: “The Friend Group” by Alumine, Feat. Sim Morales

By: Graham Johnson   “The Friend Group” is a far cry from anything I've heard Alumine produce and even quite strange for featured artist, Sim Morales. It sounds as though every beat and melody was produced with a synth or sample pad. While Alu's vocals have been effected to create an almost metallic reverb, they've … Continue reading New Single: “The Friend Group” by Alumine, Feat. Sim Morales

Party At The Backyard with Aye Nako, Alumine, Bacon Grease and Flower Child

By: Lindsy Carrasquillo   As more of a DJ set, I hadn’t realized that the first act went on since I’m used to the Backyard playing a large variety of music before shows and in-between sets.

By: Ian Maikisch https://open.spotify.com/track/4Rwfg1x0g3cd5UwuK2UVLa   When it comes to pop music I'm very particular about what I listen to. It has to show true emotion or hold up a mirror to part of the human experience. Well really this is true of all the music I listen to.
