The 13 best albums of 2013

The 13 best albums of 2013

By Jocelyn Cote Graphic Designer No matter how you look at it, 2013 was an incredible year for music. From long-awaited albums to unexpected comebacks, this was certainly a year to remember. Now, as 2013 draws to a close, I’ve lent my ears to its musical output once again to assemble my favorite releases.  13. Lorde – Pure Heroine I’ll be honest here – I didn’t know what to think of Lorde at first when “Royals” first started to hit radio airwaves. Sure, her voice is impressive for a seventeen-year-old, and her songs are catchy, but is her songcraft really…

New music from Avett Brothers

Magpie and the Dandelion

By Craig Brinkerhoff Copy Editor Americana revivalists The Avett Brothers are back with a new album, Magpie and the Dandelion, released on Tuesday, October 15th.  Despite advanced criticisms on the expected over-production of the album, I can safely say it goes hand in hand with many of their best releases. The album opens up with “Open Ended Life,” a country-twanged number that is one of the few times the band successfully utilizes a drum kit.  On their last album, The Carpenter, they attempted to find this sound, but did not quite achieve it until now. The next few tracks are quintessential Avett Brothers:…

The Wonder Years deliver masterpiece

Album art for The Greatest Generation

By Ethan Walshe Editor-in-Chief  “I ended up as food for wolves for trying to take the world on” proclaims Dan “Soupy” Campbell, vocalist for the Pennsylvania based pop punk outfit The Wonder Years, who dropped their fourth full length album The Greatest Generation via Hopeless Records on May 14. The Greatest Generation concludes the trilogy of albums chronicling the band members’ lives as they deal with teenage angst, growing up, and the whole new slew of problems that come with becoming a more well-known group. The latter is the focus of this latest album. Led by the single “Passing Through a Screen…

Vampire Weekend create a modern triumph


By Jocelyn Cote Reviews Editor Today, May 14, indie rock sensations Vampire Weekend release their latest album, Modern Vampires of the City. The New York City natives have become forerunners of the city’s indie scene since their formation in 2006. Both their 2008 self-titled album and 2010 follow-up Contra have achieved both chart and critical success, and Vampires is set to continue that streak. Style-wise, the album picks up where Contra left off. The band has expanded upon its original straight guitar/bass/drums formula to include more electronic elements such as additional layers of synthesizers and artificial beats that only add…

Fall Out Boy fail to Save Rock and Roll


 By Amy Keum  Staff Writer Pop punk band Fall Out Boy have released their highly anticipated comeback album, Save Rock and Roll, which hit the shelves on April 12th. After more than a two year break, the band come back together to produce a completely new and somewhat generic sound, making this album fall just short of its bold title. When the Chicago-based band released their second album From Under the Cork Tree in 2005, Fall Out Boy broke out of the underground scene and became one of the biggest pop punk acts of the time. The album reached double platinum status, selling 2.7 million copies…

“Comedown Machine” takes a step in the right direction


By Amy Keum Staff Writer New York based indie rock band The Strokes have released their fifth album, Comedown Machine, which hit the shelves on March 26th. This latest release has improved by leaps and bounds from their last effort in 2011,  Angles, by bringing back their original sound which had once captivated listeners. When the five-man band released their debut album Is This It in 2001, their sound became a sensation as the group transformed dull New York rock into a thrilling symphony of bright guitars and catchy tunes. They were seen as the saviors of rock music and their debut…

Pickwick releases debut


By Craig Brinkerhoff Staff Writer “You said your works in the air, touch me to complete the current sound,” Galen Disston begins “Halls of Columbia” with this line, setting in motion the sound and style that will encapsulate Seattle based indie rock band Pickwick’s debut album Can’t Talk Medicine. Pickwick plays standard indie rock with a heavy emphasis on soul and blues. The band released the album on Tuesday, March 12th. “Halls of Columbia” begins with a biting piano bit, but soon transitions into quintessential soul rock, with clean guitars and the piping vocals of the ever talented Disston. The song fades off into distorted rhythms and…

David Bowie stuns fans with release of “The Next Day”

David Bowie's The Next Day

By Jocelyn Cote Reviews Editor Today, March 12, rock legend David Bowie released his first album in ten years, titled The Next Day. Since the release of his last album, 2003′s Reality, Bowie has kept a low profile, leaving many to believe he had retired from the music industry for good. The Thin White Duke took both fans and critics alike by surprise in January when he announced the album, which was recorded over the course of two years in secret with producer Tony Visconti.  Despite being 64, Bowie’s vocals are still as impressive as ever and retain the singer’s…

Go Radio try to “Close the Distance”

Album artwork for Close the Distance

By Ethan Walshe Editor-in-Chief Tallahassee based pop-punk quartet Go Radio are set to release their sophomore album Close the Distance via Fearless Records on September 18. This latest effort is a bit of a departure from their first full length, 2011′s Lucky Street, as the band’s sound has taken a turn for the mainstream, moving towards more radio friendly tracks. Gone are the days of the 2010 EP Do Overs and Second Chances, which was full of thick pop-punk riffs coupled with frontman Jason Lancaster’s tremendous pipes. While there are glimpses of the older sound for Go Radio, the entire feel of Close the…
