Tennis came to town and boy, they killed it. Every issue that I had with their newest album fell away as they performed tracks, both young and old, without any backing vocals or excess processing. The songs felt clearer and really showcase not only the groups talent, but also their creative philosophies.
Most everyone loves music. Music is everywhere, from the sacred ceremonies of indigenous tribes all over the world to Coca Cola commercials to the notifications on your phone. Needless to say, music is a very powerful force on the human psyche and has been fundamentally intertwined with the human experience for thousands upon thousands of years.
So this month, I would like to pull together some of my favorite musical moments from television shows. This may sound strange, but I guarantee that some (if not most) of your favorite television (and movie) moments have been enhanced by a killer soundtrack (whether you were consciously aware of it or not). So here we go. 4 of my favorite musically-enhanced moments from regular old TV shows (in no particular order):
Everyone has a handful of albums that will stick with them for the majority of their lives. Those select albums that changed what style of music they listened to, influenced some kind of change in their life or is simply their favorite album.

The self-described non-philosopher, Albert Camus, once wrote extensively on the role of individual revolt in the collective rebellion and the role collective rebellion in the history of mankind. As an early advocate of the communist movement Camus sought to distance himself from his early advocacy. Thus, The Rebel was conceived.
In this controversial book, Camus outlines the metaphysics of rebellion. He begins this philosophical/moral question with a historical analysis of the French revolution, which, for him, marked a new era of rebellion. This new era of rebellion brought into being a new sense of ‘revolt’ or rather, as Camus argues, pseudo-revolt.
Yes, it’s that time of year again. Not only is fall upon us, but your favorite holiday is approaching! You may not be aware of all the fun events that are going on. Here are some highlights of some of the top ones you won’t want to miss!
On September 27, 2014 the amazing band Glass Animals came to the Boise area to play a great show at the Neurolux. I was lucky enough to attend the concert along side the great John Armstrong. Here is the review for what we thought of the Glass Animals concert as well as our fondness of their opening act, Rome Fortune.
The Denver-based band Tennis just released a new album, Ritual in Repeat, and it’s pretty good. I recently had the opportunity to sit down for a phone interview with Alaina Moore of Tennis as she was driving along the East Coast on tour to support their latest album to discuss writing the new album, working with producers, and Moore’s own rituals.
