The University is home to a variety of notable alumni, but it’s not every day that current Wahoos can enjoy former students’ career choices on the radio.
Let’s forget for a minute that John Mayer spent his early career as a brooding ladies’ man, that he has dated every vapid starlet in Hollywood from Jessica Simpson to Taylor Swift and that his early singing style was so breathy he might have in fact swallowed several microphones.
Some people say that television rots the brain. I never believed this to be true until I flipped through channels and came across ABC Family’s ‘The Vineyard.’ After watching one episode of the hour-long program, I felt my intelligence insulted by the contrived and shallow premise.
The words “pompous” and “pretentious” are bound to come up in any discussion of Aaron Sorkin, given the award-winning writer’s propensity for stuffing his characters’ mouths with the sort of pseudo-intellectual babble you might expect to hear in a high school politics classroom.
Believe it or not, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have been around for a decade now. While most bands would have faded into obscurity since then, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs prove that they are more than capable of producing fresh, new music with the release of their new album, Mosquito, last Tuesday.
If you’re a true metal fan, you’ve likely been spending the last few weeks biting your fingernails with your Monthly Metal Allowance crinkling in your pocket while you anxiously scan The Cavalier Daily for my judgment of Killswitch Engage’s (KSE’s) latest album, ‘Disarm the Descent.’
The low-profile Charlotte Aitchison, who performs under the moniker Charli XCX and gained international popularity as the featured artist of Icona Pop’s anthemic “I Love It,” recently released her own studio debut, ‘True Romance,’ an album full of songs about love, relationships and partying.
I walked into The Place Beyond the Pines today expecting something great. With an all-star cast including Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, and Bradley Cooper, fresh off of his Best Actor nomination, I knew I wouldn’t be disappointed with the movie.
After the release of the thoroughly disappointing 2011 album ‘Mine is Yours’ and a subsequent two-year hiatus, Cold War Kids have finally returned with the release of their fourth studio album ‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts.’ When the group debuted in 2004 they mesmerized fans powerful, yet fun singles like “Hang Me Up to Dry” and “Hospital Beds,” but efforts by the band since then have certainly tapered off. Fortunately, ‘Dear Miss Lonelyhearts’ helps build hope for what I had deemed to be a lost cause. Still, while the Long Beach, California based band seem to channel their best work on most of the record’s tracks, others seem as long and drawn-out as the Cold War itself.
