Ringo Deathstarr releases heavy, emotive new album, ‘Pure Mood’

There’s more to Texas-based trio Ringo Deathstarr than an incredibly clever band name. Formed by guitarist and singer Elliot Frazier in 2007, the band has toured with the Smashing Pumpkins and earned comparisons to pioneers of the shoegaze sound, such as The Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. With quite a few EPs […]


Panic! At the Disco releases spirited new single ‘LA Devotee’ from forthcoming album

Earlier this year, Panic! At The Disco drummer Spencer Smith wrote a long, heartfelt letter announcing his departure from the band, leaving frontman Brendon Urie as the band’s sole remaining original member.

Foo Fighters’ EP ‘Saint Cecilia’ has familiar feel, predictable energy

Casa B offers delicious, pricy dishes in trendy atmosphere

During the semester, it’s easy to get caught up in life on campus; there’s always something going on, so Tufts students tend to stay on campus, which keeps the dreaded fear of missing out (FOMO, as they say) at bay. But trapping oneself in the Tufts bubble can result in a general disconnect from both reality […]


‘Amy’ soundtrack a moving elegy to late singer-songwriter

Though British songstress Amy Winehouse passed away four years ago now, she still has an unquestionable presence in the music world. Known as much for her debaucheries and dramatic private life as she was for her remarkable voice, Winehouse inspired many with her unique brand of ’50s-inspired neo soul. Recently, Winehouse has been in the […]

Vanessa Carlton’s ‘Liberman’ lacks youthful luster of previous works

Every kid who grew up on 2000s pop music will probably recognize the opening chords of Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles,” one of the most popular piano anthems of 2002. With sugary vocals, lyrics about teenage heartbreak and a surprisingly killer string arrangement, the song planted Carlton in the midst of Avril Lavigne and Ashanti […]
