30 Days of Pride: Songs of Celebration

(06/29/22 1:24pm)

Even if officially confined to the month of June, Pride Month is a continuous celebration of identity. While the spirit of pride lives on in LGBTQ+ individuals all year long, having a month set aside gives an opportunity for the community to share their stories with others in order to gain visibility in a world where doors are finally opening to sexuality. Music is a vehicle of self expression during Pride Month as well as year round where artists can share their stories of love, community and hardships within their sound for those of any background to listen and appreciate. This playlist does just that, encapsulating all that it means to celebrate Pride. 

REVIEW: Phoebe Bridgers sings sad songs in vibrant color

(06/29/22 1:11pm)

Being a fan of singer-songwriter  Phoebe Bridgers is not just a pastime, but a lifestyle. The Bridgers-brand sad girl aesthetic runs deeper than her chosen brand of folksy-indie.

‘Sophie Jones’ soundtrack exemplifies music’s role in indie film

(06/02/22 12:42pm)

From that first glimpse into Sophie Jones’ world, it’s impossible not to get swept up in “Sophie Jones” and the painfully authentic story of a teenage girl grappling with the death of her mother. The film’s depiction of grief, accompanied by its portrayal of the awkwardness and excitement of high school relationships, makes it clear that “Sophie Jones” is not your usual rose-colored coming-of-age film. Rather, Jessie Barr and her cousin Jessica Barr — both producers of the film — succeed in highlighting those slice-of-life moments that many movies about teens tend to gloss over. While the cast’s grit in portraying both tear-jerking and comical scenes is evident, there seems to be an unspoken character wavering in between and behind the scenes — music.
