TSI99, by The Split Infinitives →
10 track album I’m working on another album. I’ll just release a track or two at a time, as well as borrow a little from other artists. Tracks will be released a few at a time, similarly to Kanye West for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy or Weezer for Maladroit. The title is a slight nod to Talking Heads ‘77. Much like The Son and Stay Young, Stay Young, this also a story, but...

Here’s a lead into my next album, currently titled The Son. This won’t appear on it, but here’s a little something anyhow. It’s not a terribly huge departure from Stay Young, Stay Young, but I’ll let you all be the judges. Tell me what you think.

Review #5: Ed Sheeran - +
As a musician, I’m always fascinated by other young musicians that are around my age. I can accept that I am not the best producer, the best vocalist, the best pianist, the best drummer, the best bassist, or best guitarist. However, I always see through to the end with a vision. When crafting an album, I always have a story. Each song is a chapter that illustrating a theme or moment that...
Review #4: Kimbra - Vows
If anyone has been listening to pop radio, which most people have, then most listeners are familiar with Gotye’s “Somebody I Used to Know.” There are a lot of reasons to be proud of this song. It uses unconventional instrumentation, it is authentic, and it is a forward thinking move to try and popularize this type of song. Most artists are becoming more and more electronic,...
Review #3: Coldplay - Mylo Xyloto
It’s only been a few years, but it seems like it has been so long since Coldplay released an album. Perhaps I’ve missed them that much, which is strange. I am only a recent fan of Coldplay. A Rush of Blood to the Head is brilliant, and Parachutes is a fantastic debut. X&Y is a great third, and Viva La Vida is as epic as it got when it was released. Now we have Mylo Xyloto,...
Review #2: Sigur Ros - Valtari
Being the shameless indie lover I am, waiting for Sigur Ros’ new album was a painstaking venture, to some extent. Alas, after a few years, my patience was handsomely rewarded. What Sigur Ros has created is not just a collection of songs. It’s a journey. It is an etthereal series of landscapes and scenes that, by themselves are foggy and left open to interpretation. The beauty here...
Review #1: Eminem - Recovery
At the turn of the decade, Eminem had cemented himself as the biggest rap artist of the modern era. Something happened around the release of Recovery. For the longest time, hip-hop had been the one genre that spawned singles that were both massive and brilliant. Nowadays, people accept Nicki Minaj, B.o.B., Kanye throwaways, and flippin’ Karmin as rap standards. Yes, we have Kid Cudi,...
I’m gonna start posting music reviews. I have a few already finished. I’ll post them right away. If anyone has any requests, let me know. I’d love to oblige.
Album #21: Kid A - Radiohead
Change is a very strange thing. I’ve never been too partial to so much of it at once. Of course, I could attribute this to me being a big ol’ J (judging.) I can quite vividly recall being ten years old, and being forced to deal with the notion of moving from Alexandria, VA to East Lansing, MI. The absolute frustration of uprooting and beginning again is, even a few weeks shy of seven...
I can only upload one audio file, so I’ll...
Album #22: Weezer (Blue Album) - Weezer
1994 was a pretty wildtime. Alternative rock was peaking, Green Day released one of the greatest and most commercially successful punk rock albums of all time, I was born, Oasis would release a record breaking debut with Definitely Maybe, Claire Danes was thriving on television with My So-Called Life, Pink Floyd disbanded (it really was time at that point,) depending on how you view things,...
I’m not gonna be on much for the next little while. So here are some of the next few albums to be written up about. Weezer - Weezer (The Blue Album) Kid A - Radiohead Entroducing…. - DJ Shadow Yankee Hotel Foxtrot - Wilco Hospice - The Antlers Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd The Queen is Dead - The Smiths
Album #23: Fleet Foxes - Fleet Foxes
Unrequited love can be frustrating. You don’t even need to necessarily be in love. Effort wasted is one of the most tragic things ever. People work and work and work until they can’t give any more, and then nothing. An enthusiastic musician looks for promotes their gigs. Then when they land one, no one shows up, and they are paid less than what’s in the tip jar at the...
Album #24: Graduation - Kanye West
I am an incoming senior in high school. The obvious, and important, thing to note about coming to the end of public education is what happens afterwards, as that is what everybody prepares for. Kids apply for other college and work opportunities. Others will figure out living arrangements that ask for more responsibility while providing complete independence. There are also people who squander...
Album #25: If You're Feeling Sinister - Belle &...
1996 must have been insane for Stuart Murdoch and Co. Murdoch and former B&S member Stuart David formed a group, recorded their widely acclaimed debut Tigermilk, turned a college demo project into a full time band, and recorded their magnum opus. From a celestial standpoint, Belle & Sebastian’s genius erupted overnight. If You’re Feeling Sinister is the mid nineties...
The Twenty-Five Greatest Albums of All Time
This is the first installment in a short series that will go on to explore what I to believe epitomizes specific mediums. For those of you who are not LDS, or Mormon, there are these events that take place when you are a teenager in high school, perhaps a year or two older, called stake dance. Another concept I should explain is the idea of a ward. It’s basically going to church at a...
Hello. It is interesting meeting new people, because once you know them, for whatever period of time, you it’s hard to imagine what your life might be without them. Each new person is just one tangent after another. Sometimes you come full circle, and sometimes other tangents lead to Kevin Bacon. I wonder if in Hollywood, they play Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon, but using them or their...
