Reasons To Be Cheerful Pt. 3: Lighthearted Lockdown Listens

3 March 2021

This past year has been a mammoth test of our ability to stay upbeat. Even the peppiest of people, the Leslie Knopes of the world, have felt the tedium take its toll. Enthusiasm, it seems, snoozed his alarm at the beginning of the semester and rolled back over, murmuring something about trying again in September. […]

A Love Letter to Noah Kahan’s Busyhead

15 February 2021

At first glance Noah Kahan seems to fit seamlessly into the tradition of artists such as James Blunt, James Bay, and all the other James’ who make up Spotify playlists like “Coffeeshop Feels” and “Cozy Autumn Leaves.” While I’m an avid listener of the James’ and admittedly have about four variations of playlists devoted to […]

13 February 2021

As February rolls around and we all begin to question the passage of time and our own existences once again, I bring you a list of some of my favourite songs that bring some hope as we head into this increasingly difficult semester. Exeunt by The Hellos: This song is beautiful, like all of their […]

Top 10 K.K. Songs

6 February 2021

It’s been kind of a rough ride from last March to today, for reasons I won’t elaborate on. Luckily, we were blessed with a new Animal Crossing game mid-pandemic, so, you know, it almost balances out. The opportunity to replace your everyday concerns with bug catching and fishing is every escapist’s dream. And god knows […]

Review of Mayday Parade’s Self-Titled Album (2011)

3 February 2021

My Spotify Wrapped and last.fm listening report has revealed something about me I didn’t realise before: I listen to a lot of Mayday Parade. I couldn’t tell you why since I thought I’d left behind my edgy angst phase back in 2014, but it seems as though some things never change. Mayday Parade is a […]

The Best Songs of 2020

31 January 2021

Last year I wrote “Top 10 Worst Songs of 2019” for The Record and people seemed to really like the article. There’s nothing I enjoy more than a harsh critical analysis of pop music and I was fully prepared to make the same list again for 2020. However, we all know how sh*t 2020 was […]

Rating Every Version of Mitski’s ‘Class of 2013’

9 January 2021

Music acts as both an emotional outlet for artists, and an emotional conductor for listeners. Though a lot of artists come close, Mitski is one of the only artists who can, without fail, make me feel something. I have a deep emotional connection with almost every single one of her songs, but there’s one that […]

A Breakdown (not that kind) of Spotify Playlists

6 January 2021

Who asked? Absolutely nobody. But Joseph Luke, Head of The Record, is exploiting my labour and forcing me to write an article. Although if we’re being honest, in the current climate (read: pandemic) my role as Head of Events is a little… constrained… so I’m happy to oblige. And what other personality trait do I […]

Folklore & Evermore – Taylor Swift’s 2020

26 December 2020

Although some people might not want to think back to the time-stop that was Summer 2020,  I want to quickly mention July. Funnily enough I wasn’t doing much of significance, maybe planning yet another Zoom call or reluctantly helping my sister bake. I do remember, however, where I was when Taylor Swift revealed she was […]
