“Hey, San Diego, just to make this very clear… WE. ARE. PARAMORE!” Paramore was back, alive and well after their three year break. Hayley Williams, Jeremy Davis, and Taylor York are at the top of their game, and appear to have no intention of stopping any time soon – that was evident enough...

The last time I saw Paramore was at the Honda Civic Tour in 2010 at Viejas Arena. It was the first rock concert of my life, and that night knocked my socks off. It was one of those nights where the energy and excitement was practically tangible – it tasted like sweat and tears of joy. I couldn’t...

Admittedly, Miley Cyrus did have quite the task on her hands with this fourth studio album release. She needed to prove to the world that she’s grown up, left Hannah Montana in the past, and that she’s a unique, talented artist. I wanted to write Miley a positive review, I really did. She’s...

Queens of the Stone Age is officially releasing their new album, “…Like Clockwork” on June 3. The album was unfortunately leaked last week but at least it was well liked.

Closing in on their twentieth birthday, the famed French electronic/house band, Daft Punk, have released their first album in eight years, “Random Access Memories.” (And yes it has been eight years because “Alive 2007” and the TRON: Legacy soundtrack do not count.) Guy Manuel de Homem-Christo,...
