June Parker hits some sweet spots on We're Exactly Where We Are

Although the album tends to get bogged down in a competent shoegaze drone, June Parker brings some charm to traditional shoegaze tropes. Tracks like “What has Happened/What Will Happen” and “Love Her” in particular stand out for their pretty aesthetics. Lyrically, this album is quite true to the shoegaze style; giving the listener a vague sense of what the song is about, making sure that the song's deeper meanings are hinted at but not necessarily explicitly laid out. There are enough nice moments on this release to make it well worth a listen.

Pwndeleon offers up retro video game sounds with added funk

Pwndeleon creates a pleasing mix of retro video game aesthetics and conventional EDM beats on 8mb EP.  Starfox with a little extra funk is the theme of this release, punctuated every so often by staple dubstep aggression.    

Standing out throughout the release is Pwndeleon's dedication to the tracks. Each track is well-crafted with enticing twists and turns.  The tracks can be turned up for party music, or just put on low volume in the background while gaming.

Cuchulain Kelly touches on the soulful side of the daily grind in latest music video

It's easy to get lost in the day to day hustle, grinding your way through the work day, getting caught up in petty squabbles, forgetting that this city is filled with millions of complex human beings each with their own hopes and aspirations.  It's this more soulful side of working drudgery that Cuchulain Kelly touches on in the music video for the song "Torn In Two".  Using a company meeting about "quarterly revenues" as its backdrop, the video shows us Kelly expressing his inner frustrations to his co-workers, only to be shown the door.  Of course we can all relate to the struggles of the Kelly in the video, doing the daily grind while suppressing the desire to grapple with and openly express our internal conflicts. 

All in all a charming song gleaned from the trials and tribulations of DC's buttoned down culture.
