New Music Sunday – 1/20/2019


I thought last week brought us a ton of good music, this week was even better! We’re so lucky to be starting off this year with such great music so early.

I’ve compiled over 30 songs I’ve been loving this week: lots came out as early as Monday, which was super unusual in terms of days I see music being released regularly.

This week I wanted to highlight 5 of the songs that are my favorites, since there are so many to sift through and I think some deserve a bit more when I’m particularly excited about them. I’ll probably continue this format with future posts and I started this last week on Instagram by highlighting my favorites from that week’s post.

Last night marked the start of Tomorrow Never Knows, a local music festival in Chicago founded in 2005 by Lincoln Hall and Schuba’s Tavern: two venues in the heart of the Lincoln Park and Lakeview neighborhoods.

The GRAMMYs air on Sunday, Feb. 10th this year – a bit later than last year’s ceremony (Jan. 28). While lots of people believe that the awards show really doesn’t matter in the industry, it’s still super fun to participate in award season and come up with your own predictions in regards to who is going to win what.

New Music Sunday – 1/13/2019


What a week for new music! I can’t believe how many great songs I found to share this week: I even eliminated a few so I could solidify a solid 30 new songs to share on this post. I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared this many in a New Music Sunday post – I hope it’s overwhelming but in a good way.

My 2019 Music Guide: Anticipated Releases & Wish List

Another year is here and I’m so excited to start it off with a bang! Below are a handful of album releases I’m excited to check out this year, along with my wish list of artists who I hope release music this year. Not many of them are complete shots in the dark, and if it’s doubtful, I’ve explained my reasoning as to why it IS possible for said artist to release something this year.

Indie Pop, Folk & Pop Punk – My December Show Reviews

December came and went in a blink of an eye and I managed to see three very different shows throughout the month. I thought it would be interesting to compile each review into one post to represent how different each show was in terms of genre and venue to help convey how different shows can be based on these different characteristics. I rounded up my show reviews in March and June this way as well – you can read those posts here and here.
