THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942 - DIGITAL SINCE 2010

THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

JesuitRoundup.org is brought to you by:

On October 27, 2014, Taylor Swift’s fifth studio album, 1989, was released with high hopes from her fans. For some, it was on par with the star’s previous album, RED, and for some, it exceeded their expectations. For me, it was about the same as my expectations, which consisted of another pop album reminiscent of that nails-on-a-chalkboard 2008 poppy sound...
Parquet Courts “Tally All The Things That You Broke" EP Review Released October 8th, 2013 What's Your Rupture? Genre: Post-Punk, Indie Rock, Punk Rock So, there’s this band that the blogosphere likes, and I’ve never taken the time to listen to them. It's not that they never interested me, It just kind happened (or didn’t happen, in this case). Isn’t that odd? Well, it’s...
A Fire With Friends Ghost House Review Released January 25, 2014 Genre: Indie Rock, Alternative Rock With a name like A Fire With Friends, one might assume that the Scranton 7-piece sounds like a mid-2000's Hot Topic band. However, that most certainly is not the case, as these Pennsylvanian's delve into a very straight-forward style of indie rock that has a very heavy...
Above the checkered-walled unisex bathroom in Webster Hall in New York City, neon signs provided the sole source of light in a dark bar. The place looked abandoned, almost completely vacant and very gloomy. It's macabre tone weighed down on the eyelids of Dylan Walker, vocalist of Full of Hell, noisy patrons of "artsy grind core." The band closed out...
Flying Lotus You're Dead! Album Review Warp Records Genre: Jazz Fusion, Experimental Electronica, Experimental Hip Hop, Nu Jazz, Neo Jazz, Psychedelic Jazz IDM, Wonky-Hop, Space Jazz,  Experimental-Futuristic-Jazz-Infused-Electronic-Magic Released: October 7, 2014 Every single album that Steve Ellison has released under the Flying Lotus moniker has been a conceptual piece of art and music, encompassing transcendent ideas that have emotional ties to his upbringing. From...
Mat Zo Damage Control Album Review Anjunabeats Released 2013 Genre: Progressive Trance, Progressive House, Electro House, Drum and Bass, Trap, Chillout, Garage Damage Control is the first album from British producer Mat Zo. According to him, this album has been seven years in the making. It’s hard to lasso this album into a specific genre as Mat seems to like jumping around, not allowing his music to conform...
2012...what a year. We survived the apocalypse (again), our nation acquired a not-so-new president, and Princess Kate got pregnant. There was a considerable amount of drama in the media that I was completely oblivious to, so I won’t ramble on about Twilight or something of that nature. But what a year. Despite all of this insanity developing around the...
  Kendrick Lamar To Pimp A Butterfly Album Review Top Dawg/Aftermath/Interscope Records Released March 16th, 2015 Genre: Conscious Hip-Hop, Jazz Rap, Funk, https://open.spotify.com/album/7ycBtnsMtyVbbwTfJwRjSP Rap has become a culture that has a very distinct divide between fans. There are fans of the genre that only like boom-bap style beats, thick New York accents and songs about fake MCs. Others want newer-sounding, more electronically affected music. Kendrick Lamar is one of those rappers...
